Once the camera flashes were in action, Panettiere’s dress was much more see-trough than she thought.

The siblings assure that there is only brotherly love between them and that it was nothing at all, but everyone knows that siblings don’t act like that towards each other, right?

The fashion is for a long time to dresses, skirts and shorts shorter and shorter. After all, why not? It can be very pretty, but you have to be ready to accept that there are some risks of showing more skin than originally intended.

While posing on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards in Universal City, California, on June 1, 2008, Lindsay Lohan saw her super short purple dress fly in the wind, revealing the little that was hidden. You have to be very alert when wearing such a short dress, because not only is a gust of wind dangerous, but bending over and sitting down is also to be avoided!

As Cabello sang and danced with drive, the back of her skirt got caught at waist height, revealing her backside to everyone. Luckily her skirt had a panty included, but still. She certainly would have preferred that it did not happen.

Emma Thompson is a wonderful actress who is very engaging and funny, but also somewhat exuberant. She proved it once again on the red carpet of the 2017 premiere of The Children Act, as she wanted to show everyone her love for fellow actress Hayley Atwell.

Indeed, Thompson threw herself at Atwell and gave her the most intense hug, circling her waist in a bear hug of sorts, as if her life depended on it. Fortunately, Atwell seems to have found the situation very comical, but we must admit that the gesture remains strange.

Who doesn’t love Emma Stone? This actress is so talented, energetic and likable! We’d all love to be her friend and get a hug like the one she wanted to give Damien Chazelle, the director of the movie La La Land, at the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet.

Under different circumstances, Chazelle would have most likely enjoyed his actress’ hug as well, except that in that specific moment, his goal wasn’t to receive a hug from Stone, but to kiss his girlfriend. Awkward!
