Over the weekend, filmmaker and actress Olivia Wilde had her own moment when she nearly tripped over on the red carpet after her towering heels got trapped in the train of her gown.

The mum-of-two, who is dating Harry Styles, had to put a pause on events to be helped by a staff member at the premiere of her new movie Don’t Worry Darling.

She was then helped down the flight of stairs to avoid any further errors.

Here, we take a look at some of the most clumsy moments some of our favourite stars have to deal with on the red carpet.

Angelina Jolie shocked the world when he planted a kiss on her brother’s lips at an Oscars afterparty in 2000.

After winning the Best Supporting Actress award, she awkwardly said in her speech: “I’m in shock, and I’m so in love with my brother right now.”

Although it raised a few eyebrows, nobody was prepared to see her kiss James while posing for pictures at the Vanity Fair afterparty.

Pictures of the kiss hit newsstands all over the globe and ignited a furious reaction from fans, who were puzzled at the intimate display between siblings.

Protection racket

Zac Efron drops his condom on the red carpet

Thanks to the internet, Zac Efron will probably never be able to shake off the extremely embarrassing moment when he dropped a condom on the red carpet in 2012.

The star, who had a cookie-cutter image to protect back then, quickly scrambled to pick up his protection from the floor but it was too late.

The paparazzi had already captured the moment and the star was forced to answer embarrassing questions about the incident.

After he was questioned by the Today show, he said: “I never really had a pocket-checking policy prior to going on the red carpet before, but now we fully instated one.”

Scarlett fever

Back at the Oscars in 2015, John Travolta confused fans when he crept behind Scarlett Johansson to kiss her on the cheeks while she posed for pictures.

The kiss quickly went viral, with social media users calling the Grease actor’s behaviour strange and creepy.

Weeks later, Scarlett had to defend her A Love Song for Bobby Long co-star by saying: “There is nothing strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta.”

She added: “That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live. Yet another way we are misguided, misinformed and sensationalized by the 24-hour news cycle.”

She further clarified by saying she had not seen him in years and that it had been a “pleasure” to reunite.

Prank falls flat

On the red carpet at Time’s 100 Most Influential People in 2015, funny woman Amy Schumer‘s joke fell flat and left everyone feeling quite awkward.

While former couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were posing for the paparazzi, Amy thought it’d be a great idea to pretend to stumble and fall facedown in front of them.

Kim and Kanye pretended not to notice and paid her no attention while actress Laverne Cox yelled: “Yas, Amy, yas!”

Later on in the evening, Kim and Amy seemed to have made amends and were even photographed together at the event.

Hugh done it?

Being a celebrity is not all glitz and glam – there are days you would have to deal with overly obsessive fans.

That’s what happened to Hugh Grant when a fan handcuffed herself to him at the Dutch premiere of his movie Music and Lyrics in 2014.

As he walked the red carpet, he was jumped by journalist Cielke Sijben who put the metal handcuffs on his wrist.

Hugh then had to stand in wait for 10 minutes while the police detained the Sijben and called in firefighters to free the actor.

When he was detached from her, Hugh calmly carried on with his red carpet duties like nothing had happened at all.

Ash and grab

At the Oscars in 2013, Sacha Baron Cohen attended as Admiral-General Aladeen, a character from his movie The Dictator, while carrying an urn which he claimed contained Kim Jong-Il’s ashes.

As he was interviewed by E! host Ryan Seacrest, Sacha proceeded to empty the contents of the urn on to Ryan’s outfit

The Borat actor was escorted away by police while Ryan awkwardly tried to laugh off the prank and get back to presenting.

Swanning off

We’ve seen a number of fashion faux pas on the red carpet but few can compare to Bjork‘s swan dress at the 2001 Oscars.

The Icelandic singer even accessorised the whacky outfit with a trail of eggs which she claimed to “lay” as she walked down the red carpet.

The dress was one of the biggest talking points of the ceremony and was universally panned by critics and fashion insiders.

Years down the line, it has gone down in history as one of the most iconic award outfits of all time and has even been reimagined by Valentino and featured in The Met’s exhibition Camp: Notes on Fashion.

Icky lick

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have had some pretty bizarre red carpet moments over the years.

One came in 2021 when he showed up at the Billboard Music Awards with his tongue dyed pitch black.

To show off his weird look, he stuck his tongue out to the cameras and proceeded to make out with his now fiancée Megan.

To date, nobody has been able to work out what exactly the rapper had painted on his tongue.

Flour power

Kim Kardashian was left horrified in 2012 when she was attacked with flour while posing on the red carpet at her own perfume launch.

The perpetrator was heard screaming “fur hag” as she poured the flour all over the reality star’s outfit and hair.

It was later revealed that she was an activist with links to the animal rights group PETA.

The organisation initially denied the woman was acting on their behalf but called Kim “heartless” and told her to “get a life” when she decided to press charges against her attacker, which she later dropped.

Dread carpet
