The TV host and Dancing with the Stars contestant's costume slipped as she performed the quick step with partner Tristan MacManus, prompting Tom Bergeron to quip that, "On the European version that would be perfectly fine." Even judge Bruno Tonioli got in on the act, telling Grace her performance was "top heavy." But Grace insists that she kept her, ahem, grace during the routine. "There was a little tiny movement, but it did not equate to a wardrobe malfunction," she says, adding that she is protected by "industrial-strength bras, gaffer tape, you name it."

My, my, Miss American Pie! Reid turns heads on the red carpet for reasons her stylist probably didn't anticipate at Diddy's 2004 birthday bash in N.Y.C. The actress's dress slipped off her shoulder, exposing her left breast – and causing a paparazzi photo frenzy.
