Red Carpet Fails That Will Make You Laugh

Hayden Panettiere Is Betrayed By Her Dress

A dress that can make you fall is not the perfect dress after all. Hayden Panettiere was gorgeous at the 2014 Met Gala when she wore a Tom Ford dress, except that it betrayed her.

The dress made her look stunning, but it made her trip and fall down the stairs. After the incident, the Nashville actress did nothing but make jokes about her fall. We love her attitude.

Swan Dress

Björk may have gone too far when she showed up at the 2001 Academy Awards dressed in a swan dress. An outfit like hers was not a common thing to wear on a red carpet back in those days.

The singer was criticized for her choice of outfit. People couldn’t understand it was merely artistic. She even brought ostrich eggs, which she carefully dropped on the red carpet.

Bumping Into Your Ex

Everything that happens on the red carpet is either recorded or photographed, so celebrities have to pull themselves together when facing an awkward situation. Bumping into your ex is always going to be weird.

Model Miranda Kerr came across ex-husband Orlando Bloom at the Vanity Fair Oscars party. The actor deliberately interrupted the interview the model was having just to say hi to his ex-wife. They were nice to each other, but the situation was awkward.

Buy My Album

Most celebs get super glamorous and stylish for a red carpet. Others use the red carpet to promote their work, like Macy Gray. The singer and songwriter wore an awkward dress at the 2001 MTV VMA’s.

The dress read, “My new album drops September 18, 2001. Buy it!” If she wanted people to talk about her, I believe her purpose was fulfilled.

Petra Nemcova

The chance of tripping and falling down to the floor is highly reduced when the celebrity is a model who has catwalk experience. However, model Petra Nemcova tripped on the red carpet thanks to the long dress.

The Czech model stumbled and fell to the ground in the Cannes Festival. She laughed about the situation and quickly got on her feet. She might have been on the ground, but she was always looking glamorous.


Kim Kardashian went through an embarrassing time at the launch of her fragrance True Reflections in 2012 when an unidentified Asian woman threw a bag of flour on the model.

Kim didn’t let the unfortunate situation get in the way. She left the event to clean herself and came back making jokes about the incident. The attacker was finally arrested, but Kim didn’t want to press charges.

The Internet Can Be Dangerous

According to the Internet, Jason Derulo had an incident when he showed up at the 2015 Met Gala in a white suit. Internet users claimed that the singer tripped, rolled and fell down the stairs.

Even though the man’s face is not seen in the picture, the world bought the lie. It wasn’t until Derulo came out, to tell the truth: he wasn’t even at the Met Gala in the first place. After all, some poor guy fell down the stairs, but not Derulo.

Yulia Rybakova’s Torn Dress

Yulia Rybakova is a well-known plus-size Russian model who fights to take down the conventional beauty standards in the modeling industry. She was walking on the red carpet when a man accidentally stepped on her beautiful red dress.

Despite the incident, the beautiful redhead model stayed calm and kept showing a big smile on her face. She was photographed with a man holding the dress for her.

Kanye West, Canceled

Taylor Swift won the best music video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009. The singer didn’t have a minute to enjoy the award, as Kanye West grabbed the microphone and stole her moment on stage.

The rapper got up on stage and said that “Beyonce had one of the best music videos of all time.” After this awkward scene, the Swifties canceled the rapper. West got himself into a war he could never win.

It’s Not What You Think

This is Cara Delevigne lying on the floor with a fashion designer. The scene may look like these two were caught in the middle of something. The truth is that the model and actress simply lost balance at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards.

As she was losing balance, she grabbed onto the designer to avoid falling but caused both of them to fall down to the floor. They had their drinks spilled all over them. In the end, they just laughed about it.

Oscar-Winner Rami Malek

Rami Malek did an excellent job playing Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. The actor was overwhelmed with excitement when he won the Oscar nomination for Best Actor in 2019.

On his way to the stage, Malek missed a step and fell down to the floor. He was surrounded by many people who quickly helped him. The fall couldn’t erase the man’s happiness, though.

Red Carpet Cringe

Taylor Swift showed up in a stunning blue dress at the 2015 Grammys. The singer came across Nancy O’Dell, an ET reporter, who suggested to Taylor that she would walk away with lots of men that night.

Taylor was shocked to hear the reporter’s statement and quickly shut her down. “I’m not going to walk home with any men tonight,” she answered. Great comeback, Taylor!

West-Kardashian Cut Loose

Amy Schumer is an amazing comedian who makes us all laugh with her jokes and pranks. Amy attended the 2015 TIME Gala, where she decided to play a joke on the West-Kardashian couple.

The comedian purposely fell to the floor just when Kim and Kanye were making their entrance. The couple walked by Amy without even offering some help. She was simply ignored. I guess we just knew how it was going to end.

Dangerous Stairs

Watching your steps is always important, especially if you’re wearing high heels in front of a million cameras. British actress Helen Mirren missed the steps at the stairs of the Berlin Film Festival and tripped.

The 69-year-old actress may have stumbled and fallen, but she never lost elegance. She was wearing a tight green dress which made her look as graceful as ever.

Tre Cool Being Not So Cool

Frank Wright, also known as Tree Cool, is the drummer of Green Day. The artistic nickname he chose is cool, but this photo of the artist at the 2019 Europe Music Awards isn't cool at all.

The drummer was photographed getting out of the limo with the band when he stumbled and fell down. Without accepting help, he quickly stood up on his feet. It wasn’t a cool moment for the musician.

Covered In Cake

Katy Perry had an unforgettable show at the 2008 MTV Latin America Music Awards. The singer got herself into a cake the size of a human. The performance went perfectly, but she had a minor inconvenience while trying to leave the stage.

Perry was covered in cake from head to toe. There even were cake remains all over the stage. The singer failed to watch her steps and fell down to the floor. Her crew couldn’t stop laughing but quickly helped her.

Mother-Daughter Awkward Exchange

Bringing your mother to the red carpet might not turn out the way you expected. Dakota Johnson walked on the red carpet with her mom, Melanie Griffith, with whom she had an awkward exchange.

The reporter asked Griffith if she’d seen Fifty Shades of Grey, and Griffith replied that she didn’t need to see the movie. Dakota felt so annoyed that she rolled her eyes and said “Alright, you don't have to see it!"

Tina Fey And Amy Poehler

When two comedian actresses get together, hilarious situations can happen as a result. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made us laugh on their way to the stage at the 2013 Emmys.

The actresses were mocking themselves as they climbed the stairs to the stage. The audience couldn’t stop laughing at their jokes. They looked as if they were drunk, but it was part of the public mockery.

Avoiding A Red Carpet Fail

Virginie Efira felt a loose buckle in her high heels and immediately asked her partner Niels Schneider to help her. Instead of pretending nothing had happened, the actress and TV presenter avoided what could have been a red carpet fail.

Schneider kneeled down and put the buckle back to its place. This Cinderella moment –with a Prince Charming included– took place at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Hard To Walk

No matter how beautiful a dress might be. If it’s not comfortable enough to let you walk, then it isn’t the right dress. Alysia Reiner captivated everyone at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards with a stunning red dress, except it was too tight for her to walk.

The Orange Is the New Black actress walked on the red carpet while fighting the tightness of her dress. Even though she had someone help her with the dress, we can’t leave out the fact that she looked iconic.

Jennifer Garner Sliding On Stage

Jennifer Garner looked gorgeous when she introduced the winner for Best Soundtrack at the 2006 Oscars. On her way to the microphone, she almost tripped and fell down. It could’ve been a tragedy. Lucky her, she just slipped onstage.

It’s hard to say how she managed to stay on her feet with high heels and a gown, but she made it. The actress didn’t seem embarrassed. In fact, she was laughing and smiling. We love that attitude, Jenn!

What A Gentleman

Singer Adam Levine walked down the red carpet with his stunning wife by his side, Behati Prinsloo, at the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The couple was posing for photos when the model’s dress slipped.

Adam Levine acted quickly and covered his wife’s chest with his arm. The Victoria’s Secret model couldn’t stop laughing about this minor inconvenience. Lucky for her, her husband saved the day.

Emilia Clarke Is Dismissed

E! reporter Giuliana Rancic was interviewing Emilia Clarke when she spotted Heidi Klum in the crowd. The reporter quickly told the Game of Thrones actress to go.

It was quite rude for the reporter to dismiss Emilia. The actress was enjoying her time and didn’t hear Rancic. “You can go,” she repeated, and Emilia walked away.

Camila Cabello

The OMG face that Camila Cabello made during her performance at the 2019 Grammys has an embarrassing explanation. The former member of Fifth Harmony had a wardrobe issue on stage.

The singer was rocking it on stage, as usual, when her skirt went crazy and flew up. She noticed the inconvenience and made a horrified face that was caught on camera. Camila quickly fixed it and continued the show as if nothing had happened.

Acting Gone Wrong

After this episode, Heidi Klum will always have trust issues. The beautiful model and Tom Bergerson hosted the 2008 Emmy Awards. As usual, the couple had some lines rehearsed, but the acting didn’t go as planned.

The model was supposed to faint and fall into Bergerson’s arms, but she never landed there. Instead, she fell to the ground hard. The situation was not only embarrassing but hurtful to watch.

Tired Of High Heels

Wearing high heels for a long time is exhausting and unpleasant for most women. Sometimes, celebrities have to stand on their feet for long hours while wearing high heels. Kristen Stewart said enough is enough at the 2018 Cannes red carpet.

The actress just got tired of wearing high heels and took them off while walking down the red carpet. If you ever wore high heels, you’d understand. Choosing comfort over pain is a great choice.

Ariana Grande Held Her Dress Down

Ariana Grande showed up at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards in a beautiful macaroon dress. The dress, designed by Kenley Collins, was an excellent fit but not the best choice for that windy day.

The dress skirt suddenly flew up while Ariana was hitting the red carpet. The singer quickly managed to hold it down to avoid any unnecessary exposure. Still, the cameras captured the moment, and she looked just like Marilyn Monroe.

Kesha Isn’t Hug-Worthy

Jerry Seinfeld and Kesha bumped into the red carpet at the David Lynch Foundation’s “A Night of Laughter and Song.” The singer was being nice when she asked the comedian for a hug. Surprisingly enough, Seinfeld answered, “no thanks.”

After Kesha walked away from the awkward moment, the reporter interviewing Seinfield explained to him who Kesha was. “Okay, well, I wish her the best,” he replied. Apparently, Kesha wasn’t worthy of his hug.

Emma Thompson Went Down

British actress Emma Thompson had a minor incident at the TCL Chinese Theater in 2013. The talented actress had to kneel down to leave her hand-printed on cement, but she lost control of her body and fell down.

The fall didn’t make the elegance of the actress go away. Thompson may have collapsed on the floor, but she couldn’t stop laughing about it.

Stella McCartney Steps On Rihanna

Accidents on the red carpet happen all the time. Fashion designer Stella McCartney accidentally stepped on Rihanna’s dress at the 2014 Met Gala and ripped it. It was her design she stepped on.

This situation is a friendly reminder for celebrities to keep long distances from people while wearing long dresses. I bet McCartney didn’t feel guilty. After all, she messed up her own creation.

Rolling On Stage

Jon Hamm’s performance in Mad Men earned him an Emmy for Best Actor in Drama Series in 2015. The actor must have been very excited when he won the award because he jumped to the stage instead of taking the stairs and fell.

He was so happy to have won the award that he forgot he was wearing a suit. The actor crawled his way to the microphone in the coolest way possible. However, it wasn’t cool at all.

Elsa Hosk

Swedish model Elsa Hosk hit the red carpet at the 2019 Venice Film Festival. She was wearing a beautiful golden gown. The Victoria’s Secret angel was walking down the red carpet when she stopped to bend down.

Elsa had dropped one of her earrings and quickly kneeled down to grab it. It wasn’t a stylish thing to do, but it was necessary. Who would leave an expensive piece of jewelry behind? I personally wouldn’t.

Choked By A Dress

Karolina Kurkova, Victoria’s Secret model, was walking down the red carpet at the NYC Ballet Gala when someone accidentally stepped on her long cape. The Angel could’ve been choked by her own stunning red dress.

Fortunately, it was a minor incident. It could’ve ended in a torn dress or worse, but it was just a foot stepping in the wrong place. Kurkova continued walking down the red carpet as if nothing had happened.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj went through the worst embarrassing moment of her career at the Video Music Awards. She was performing Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. when her dress ripped apart.

Without second-guessing, Nicki dropped the microphone and held her dress with both hands. If I were Nicki, I would sue the designer of the dress for fashion malpractice.

Jennifer Lawrence Doesn’t Like Long Distances

Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t mind showing her true self in public events. The actress was caught with a glass of wine in one hand and holding her dress with the other so she could skip rows.

We don’t know if she skipped rows because of the wine or because the walking distance was considerably large. Jennifer didn’t care that she was at the 2018 Oscars wearing a Dior dress. She was just being herself.

Bradley Cooper Gets Hugged

Bradley Cooper was having a nice chat with Michael Pena and Mandy Patinkin when he suddenly felt someone hugging his legs. It was Vitalii Sediuk, a Ukrainian journalist known for pranking celebrities for a living.

The whole scene was cringy. Sediuk was probably waiting for Cooper to get mad at him when actually it was the other way around. The actor laughed about the situation and didn’t mind the close intrusion. I bet viewers had the same facial expression as the woman on the back of the picture.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba went through an embarrassing moment at the 2006 Teen Choice Awards. The actress didn’t watch her steps and fell to the ground. Thankfully, she was wearing a comfy outfit, and nothing ended up torn or ripped.

Despite the incident, Jessica never stopped smiling. She knew all cameras were pointing at her, so she continued looking as gorgeous as ever. It could’ve been worse if she wore a gown or a delicate outfit.

Liang Jingke

Chinese actress Liang Jingke attended the 2016 Venice Film Festival in a stunning –but tight– dress. The only issue with this beautiful green dress was that it was so tight that it made her fall to the ground.

The actress tripped and fell on her knees. Because of the tightness of the dress, she couldn’t get up by herself. She had two gentlemen helping her to stand on her feet. The dress was evil, but it made her look gorgeous.
