“I was wearing a Hervé Léger dress, one of those dresses with bandages. I went out the door and split from the bottom up – my whole body was outside,” Keira told People.

She continued, “It was just a plump, naked body. So it was a real moment to go, ‘I think the dress was too small.'”

Keira pointed out that this happened at a time when the paparazzi were constantly following her, almost getting a glimpse of the whole thing.

“It was at a point where several paparazzi were following me. Luckily, I was in my apartment, and I wasn’t outside the front door, so no one got a picture of the fact that this dress had split,” said Keira.

Thankfully, Hervé Léger delivered two dresses, and she was able to change up before she hit the red carpet.

“Thank God [didn’t] It happened on the red carpet because it could have happened at any time that evening and I was incredibly lucky to have it happen when it happened,” concluded Keira.
