Chrissy Teigen, the cookbook author, faced a humorous wardrobe malfunction at the recent Baby2Baby gala. The back zipper of her stunning one-shouldered black gown by Afffair ($2,500) unexpectedly split open, turning heads on the red carpet.
Despite the mishap, Teigen, 37, navigated through the event with her trademark good humor, sharing the moment with her vast Instagram following.
Teigen’s flawless red carpet appearance showcased the chic dress, featuring a high slit and a cascade of gold beaded flowers trailing down from her shoulder. The busy mom accessorized with diamond drop earrings, a gold clutch, and strappy black heels, creating a picture-perfect ensemble for the annual charity event that raises millions for children in poverty.
Inside the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, however, the unexpected happened, and the back of Teigen’s dress split open. In a photo shared on her Instagram Story, the star leaned forward with the dress completely unzipped, captioning it with a casual “Oh lol.” The social media post left followers wondering if the issue was promptly resolved.
Despite the wardrobe malfunction, Teigen, a former recipient of the Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award, seemed to have a great time at the event. She joined a host of celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Hailey Bieber, Olivia Wilde, Demi Lovato, and others, in supporting this year’s award winner, Salma Hayek.
Whether someone came to her aid or the issue was swiftly fixed remains unclear, but Teigen’s ability to laugh off the mishap further endeared her to fans, turning a potentially embarrassing moment into a memorable one at the star-studded gala.
