Kate Bosworth was worried she'd trip as she presented an award at the Golden Globes, because her shoes were catching on her dress.

Actress Kate Bosworth risked a wardrobe malfunction at the Golden Globes, but was saved by some handy strips of duct tape.

The 33-year-old presented a gong at the ceremony on Sunday (10Jan16), but feared she would fall over when her shoes kept catching on the inside of her designer dress. Thankfully there was a not-so-glamorous solution to her predicament.

"My straps for my shoes are literally duct-taped together because they caught on the inside of my dress," she confessed to "The sequins are held together by netting and they caught on the netting and were pulling. I thought, 'Oh no, I don't want trip or something.' So my stylist duct-taped the shoes together and that was not very glamorous. But it was also very necessary."

Kate wowed on the red carpet in a stunning pink sequin gown by Dolce & Gabbana, which also featured jewelled embellishment around the bust and waist.

Not satisfied with one designer ensemble, the actress changed into another bejewelled creation from the Italian fashion house for the the Warner Bros/InStyle.Netflix afterparty - a black structured mini dress with heavy gold detailing.

Having always been someone who pushes the boundaries of fashion, Kate layered the look with a pair of black straight-legged cropped trousers.

The star kept her hair the same for both looks, but she switched up her make-up by adding a bold red lip for the afterparty, having had a nude shade on for the ceremony.

While Kate likes to experiment with fashion, she has spoken in the past of how important she finds it to have versatile wardrobe staples in her closet.

"I have always been attracted to fashion that is transitional, meaning designs that carry a woman from season to season, from day to night,” she told E! News.
