The Glamour Magazine Awards were held last night, and celebrities from all over the world showed up to take part and be seen. TV host Kirsty Gallacher was due to appear on the red carpet in a sheer black dress which was generally expected to become transparent under the camera flashlights.
However, just before she was due to leave for the engagement, she suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
"I was getting ready in a hotel room nearby," she told reporters this morning, "And I had stripped off my day-wear and sent it out in a bag with my assistant, who was going to wait for me in the car. I went to the wardrobe, but the door was completely stuck! There was no way to get my dress out and I was pretty much naked!"
In panic, Kirsty phoned the hotel's maintenance department, and asked for help. She then hid in the bathroom while a maintenance man attempted to get into the wardrobe. However, the dress was completely ruined in the process.
"They found me another dress to wear, but it wasn't see-through at all," she said. "I got people to check, and they said they couldn't see my bum or breasts through the material, so I wasn't going to wear that. In the end I didn't bother going."
