Lady Gaga was left red-faced as she arrived at an awards ceremony on Monday when her corset fell down and exposed her bare breasts.
The Poker Face hit-maker was invited to collect the Fashion Icon prize at the Annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards in New York, and she dressed up in a wig and elaborate black dress to attend the ceremony at the Lincoln Center in Manhattan.
Gaga donned a bright teal wig and a spike-breasted gown by Thierry Mugler, but when she tried to pose with her hands behind her head, the corset slipped and left her chest exposed.
However, Gaga seemed unfazed and went on to praise Mugler's designing talents in her acceptance speech.
She told the crowd, "I can't believe I'm allowed in here. My sister is here with me tonight. I told her I was very nervous. I used to save up my money to buy Mugler vintage archive. I used to save up all my money. I had to have it. That's really what fashion is all about for me. I already felt like I had made it before I had made it. All of you made me feel like a star before I was. Thank you for believing in me."
Marc Jacobs won the night's lifetime achievement award and other stars in attendance at the event included Kanye West, Naomi Watts, Lucy Liu and Marcia Cross.
