Actress Katherine Heigl faced an embarrassing situation when one of the straps broke on her red dress in the middle of her acceptance speech at an award function in Las Vegas.
The 31-year-old actress was being honoured with Female Star of the Year Award at the ShoWest convention for her work in films like “27 Dresses” and “The Ugly Truth”.
Host Billy Bush stepped in and saved the day, holding her strap in place and giving the actress the chance to say a few words without worry of showing too much flesh.
The actress was so shocked that she found it difficult to finish her speech.
“Oh my,” Billy Bush Tweeted. “Hosting showest awards in LV. Heigl comes up to get award, dress strap breaks…I hold her top on while she accepts!”
A rep for Heigl tells UsMagazine.com: “She appreciated Billy’s ‘support.’”
After receiving her award, she went backstage and found a pin to secure the strap before heading to the photographers’ enclosure to show off her new award
