Giuliana Rancic Exclusive Interview On Oscar Dress Malfunction:
HollywoodLife.com got to catch up with the host at the Crystal Light Liquid event at the SLS Hotel toasting the #tinywins of award season, where she told us all about the malfunction! “Oh my gosh, I still can’t believe that happened! The zipper actually broke because the gentleman who was in charge of our audio on set pulled on it too hard! I was live on air for over 5 hours and naturally, the battery on my microphone needed to be changed. The audio guy was in a hurry and tried to pull the zipper up too quickly and roughly and it got jammed! It is pretty much a nightmare when that happens, but there is nothing to do but laugh it off! That’s what live TV is all about, baby. I absolutely loved my Paolo Sebastian gown and the zipper malfunction had absolutely nothing to do with the designer or the dress itself,” she explained. “These types of dresses just need to be handled gently!”
Giuliana Rancic’s Favorite Oscar Looks:
The star also shared her favorite looks at this year’s show. “I think Kate Hudson looked absolutely incredible at the Oscars. She was head-to-toe perfection and the epitome of how a star should look on the red carpet at the Oscars,” she said. “I also loved Cate Blanchett. She can do no wrong. She has the most beautiful skin and her hair and make up are always classic and elegant.”
G, we totally agree with your fabulous red carpet picks — both stars looked stunning!
Although her malfunction was definitely unexpected, we think she handled herself great — and it certainly sounds like an Oscars moment she’ll never forget. What do you think about Giuliana’s wardrobe malfunction? Was it totally mortifying or not really a big deal at all?
