Chrissy Teigen laughs off wardrobe malfunction as dress’ zipper splits open at gala

Oh, baby.

Chrissy Teigen suffered a wardrobe malfunction at the Baby2Baby gala on Saturday after the back zipper of her dress came completely undone, but she took the mishap with her usual good humor by sharing the moment with her millions of Instagram followers.

Luckily, the cookbook author, 37, got through the red carpet without incident in her stunning one-shouldered black gown by Afffair ($2,500), showing off plenty of leg in the sexy dress which featured a high slit and a vine of gold beaded flowers trailing down from her shoulder.

Teigen wore her hair in a wavy style and accessorized with diamond drop earrings, a gold clutch and strappy black heels for the annual charity event, which raises millions for children in poverty.

But while she looked picture-perfect on the red carpet, the back of the busy mom’s dress split open once inside the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.

“Oh lol” she captioned a photo on her Story that showed the star leaning forward with the back of her dress completely unzipped.

While she didn’t elaborate on whether the issue was fixed, it seemed like the mom of four — who was a former recipient of the Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award — had a ball as she joined a slew of celebrities who attended to support this year’s award winner, Salma Hayek.

Other A-list attendees included Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Hailey Bieber, Olivia Wilde, Demi Lovato and more, hopefully one of which helped out the “Cravings” author with her gown.

Her gown featured 3D floral embellishments.

“Holy moly the beauty, the icon!!” Teigen captioned a photo she posted of Hayek on her Story at the time.

This isn’t the first zipper issue the star has had over the years; in 2021, she shared a photo of a date night wardrobe malfunction when she had to cover up the gaping side of her dress with a long jacket after the zipper broke.

And in 2016, she accidentally revealed her private parts when she wore a sexy black gown held together with a safety pin on the American Music Awards red carpet.

At least she can laugh it off.
