The reality star kept her Twitter followers updated about her hilarious fashion emergency
Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s glam Emmys look did not stand the test of time — or even the night.
With her blonde hair loosely pulled back, the former star of The Bachelorette, 33, attended the 2018 Emmy Awards in a sleek black gown with a detailed halter top until a major wardrobe malfunction put her evening in jeopardy.
Bristowe kept her fans updated with hilarious tweets as the saga wore on. “Sitting in the emmys and my zipper just busted and my butt is exposed and I can’t get up and I dunno what to do,” she explained. “It all opens up when I stand up. Right down to mid crack.”
Making matters worse for the reality star, she was in the wrong seat. Though she was initially allowed to stay, her luck did not last for long: “They came and got us and moved us closer to the front, so I had to get up and waddle down in front of everyone, towards the front with my hands clasping my dress.”
Even though she was in a room full of fashionistas, nobody could help Bristowe. When a fan said that she needed some pins and a glass of wine, Bristowe replied, “I’ve got tequila. And we have asked so many people. How does no one have like 5 pins!!!!??”

Bristowe finally found a change of clothes — this time a sparkly black dress with some serious fringe — before she headed to the Governors Ball.
Bristowe shared on her Instagram story, “Quick wardrobe change. I’m not happy about it, but I’m also not mad about it either.”
