Actress Katherine Heigl nearly exposed her boob last night at the ShoWest convention when one of her dress straps broke while she was on the stage accepting the Female Star of the Year Award! Read more on this story below.
In the middle of Heigl’s acceptance speech, the strap on her red dress broke. Heigl quickly grabbed the top of her dress to keep from flashing the crowd.
The host for the evening, Billy Bush, came to Heigl’s rescue by holding the strap in place while she finished her acceptance speech.
Heigl later secured the strap with a safety pin.
Katherine Heigl also explained her new brown locks. The hair color change is for her role in a movie adaptation of novelist Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series about a young female bounty hunter.
“She’s a very specific kind of girl, and I didn’t want to disappoint the fans because I know what it’s like when your favorite book gets made into a movie and it’s not what you had hoped,” Heigl told me backstage before her dress disaster. “I wanted to go out there and show the fans I’m committed to Stephanie.”
Katherine said she was ready to go ahead and make the change before filming. “I’ve been dying to do it anyway,” Heigl said. “I love it. It’s a nice change. I’ve just been so ‘the blonde’ for so long that it’s nice to shake things up.”
