6 months ago

Admiring the dazzling outfits of stars on the red carpet, we often fail to grasp the challenges famous women face while flaunting their beautiful dresses at public events.

But these heroines are not easily deterred; they know how to gracefully navigate any situation.

Eva Longoria wore her dress backward during the Cannes Film Festival.

“My luggage (with my gown) was lost. I had less than 30 minutes before the red carpet so I threw this dress on and ran out! As I stepped out of the car onto the thousand of photographers screaming, I see the stylist running towards me screaming, ‘You have it on backwards!’ Yep, this dress is on backwards and I couldn’t do anything about it! So I just worked it.”

Jessica Simpson’s high heels got caught in a sewer grate, but she simply laughed it off, showing her easy-going nature.
