Heidi Klum handles Cannes red carpet wardrobe malfunction like a pro

Onlookers got more than they bargained for when the supermodel hit the red carpet.

Heidi Klum sure knows how to make an entrance. The 49-year-old supermodel and America's Got Talent judge stole the spotlight at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of La Passion De Dodin Bouffant with a daring look that almost had her baring it all on the red carpet.

Dressed in a vibrant yellow Zuhair Murad Couture gown, Heidi rocked a bold ensemble that had everyone talking. The gown flowed gracefully as she ascended the carpeted stairs, with a long trailing cape adding an extra touch of drama to her entrance.

Yes, folks, we're talking about an almost-unnoticeable wardrobe malfunction that happened while she was striking those fierce poses for the cameras - and Heidi handled the whole thing like the professional she is.

Klum's red carpet slip

Blame it on the daring design of her dress. With the barely-there bodice, things got a little cheeky when Heidi raised and lowered her arms to flaunt that fabulous flowing cape. In the midst of all that motion, the cut-out on her dress briefly slipped upwards - it was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, but hey, the internet has sharp eyes.

But let's give credit where credit is due. Did Heidi let that little slip phase her? Not a chance. With a smile that could light up a room and confidence that could rival any Gen Z runway model, she carried on with the utmost grace, continuing to strike those picture-perfect poses on the red carpet.


Completing her head-turning ensemble, the star let her two-toned shaggy blonde locks flow freely, with bangs playfully framing her face, reaching just below her eyebrows. With a touch of magic from makeup artist Ash K Holm, Heidi rocked a soft glam look, and strutted her stuff in fully translucent heels.

It just goes to show that even the most glamorous celebrities can have those "oops" moments. But hey, when you're Heidi Klum, a little slip here and there is just a part of the show.
