No clutch? No problem! At least that was the case for Jennifer Hudson, who opted to carry her itty-bitty red carpet essentials in a not-so-secret compartment — her cleavage!

The singer attended the New York City Ballet Gala on Wednesday night, and she definitely dressed to impress in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder gold Prabal Gurung gown. Hudson accessorized the glittering number with a pair of shimmery strappy sandals and a tube of luxe lipstick stashed deep in the front her strapless dress.

“And couldn’t fit my lipstick in those to little mini purses, so I had to stuff it in my…….,” Hudson captioned the hilarious snapshot on Instagram.

Without a clutch to carry her handy tube for touchups, Hudson showed fans just how creative she had to get at the last minute. Sometimes, having to tote around an extra bag at a formal event can get overwhelming, so we can totally get behind the star’s MacGyver moment (mostly because we’ve been there once or twice before).

But now, only one question remains: What lipstick shade was she stashing? If we track it down, we’ll let you know.
