Giuliana Rancic‘s night is off to a sweet start.

The longtime E! News personality returned to host the network’s pre-Oscars red carpet show for the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday — but things got a little sticky during a segment with chef Wolfgang Puck, who has been responsible for feeding the stars at the Governors Ball, the official post-Oscars celebration, for over 20 years.

As Puck, 68, was running down his menu for the night, he offered Rancic, 43, one of his famous chocolate Oscar statuettes — which were filled with passion fruit chocolate, to Rancic’s surprise. After she took a bite, a small piece snapped off and fell down the front of her stunning cream-colored gown.

Of course, Rancic took it all in stride and laughed the moment off. (Luckily, it didn’t stain!)
