Yet another celebrity fell into the trap of a heartbreaking wardrobe malfunction, right on the red carpet. Following the infamous footsteps of the likes of Amy Winehouse and a host of others, this time it was the turn of “The Ugly Truth” star Katherine Heigl, who recently reported she will be leaving Grey’s Anatomy.
Heigl is a lot on the news lately, what with the image makeover she recently underwent, sporting her all new long dark tresses. Few days back, though, she hogged all the limelight for all the wrong reasons. However, what could have been a really awkward and embarrassing situation was turned into no more than a fashion goof up blip, thanks to her smartness and that of her friend, Billy Bush.
The incident occurred during the ShoWest Award ceremony in Las Vegas. Katherine Heigl had been vetted as the Female Star of the Year. As she went up to the stage to receive the award and give her acceptance speech, the strap of her beautiful red dress, the one on her left shoulder, broke, almost baring her left breast, but held in place just in time by the actress.
However, one cannot deny that the “27 Dresses” star did manage the embarrassing situation with star-like dignity and aplomb. Not letting the strap of her dress fall from her shoulders even once, and displaying not an iota of embarrassment or awkwardness, she smartly went with her speech, holding on to the broken strap of her dress, and soon, the host of the award ceremony, Billy Bush, came to her rescue.
While Katherine Heigl finished her speech, Billy Bush valiantly raced to her aid, holding on to her strap as he stood behind her, away from the view of the prying paparazzi cameras.
