Sarah Hyland on Globes wardrobe malfunction

It's a good thing "Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland has quick reflexes.

The 21-year-old actress almost faced a very revealing moment on the Golden Globes red carpet when the zipper on her vintage Dolce and Gabbana dress gave out.

"I was just standing there waiting to come up here," Hyland told E!'s Giuliana Rancic, "and I just felt an explosion in my back. And I felt my dress start to slip, and I grabbed it before it was too late. I’m now sewn in my dress."

Taking a look at Rancic's embellished gown, she joked, "I could’ve used one of your zippers."

It turns out that her team did replace the dress's zipper before the awards show, but it seems that wasn't enough.

"It happens," Hyland said, laughing it off. "I didn’t go on any of the diets for this, maybe that’s why. Despite everything, I’m excited to be here."

      Or it was just a joke. Sometimes people like to tell jokes when something embarrassing happens.

    Stars want to look their best, the dresses are expensive & the "zipper gives out" how cheap & embarrassing for the person wearing it & the designer has some nerve to be cheap !...

    You would think that the thousands of dollars they pay for their dresses, they'd have a functioning zipper. I wonder if they get a guarantee with their dress.

    They don't give out when they are the correct size.
