It was something that could easily have happened to her awkward, geeky character in New Girl; actress Zooey Deschanel suffered potential embarrassment at the Emmy Awards 2012 last night (September 23rd) as she had a wardrobe malfunction right before going on stage to present the Emmy for Writing in a comedy series.
Thankfully, the unflappable actress had her publicist with her and the pair of them reacted quickly to the issue. Explaining it to E! Online, Deschanel explained that "[we] had to cut my bra off because it was showing. We just had to cut part of it. It was before I went on. It was after the red carpet." Deschanel often comes across as pretty level-headed and down to earth, so instead of having a major freak out, she took a more philosophical stance on something that could've ruined the evening for more image-aware peers. "I don't even care really because it's all fun" she told the website. "This is just supposed to be for fun. If you're not having fun, what are you doing?"
Deschanel was also quick to point out that she wasn't wearing a dress that was deliberately showing plenty of flesh for the sake of it. "I wouldn't wear that kind of dress" she insisted. "I just didn't want my bra to show."
