The Baywatch star was silently "freaking out" as she attended the Rocketman Premiere because her dress zipper had broken just moments before hitting the red carpet.

Priyanka shared the funny story of her wardrobe malfunction on Instagram, along with various photos of the gown in question.

She shared: “I may look chill on the outside here, but little did everyone know I had just been freaking out on the inside, the delicate zipper to this vintage @Roberto_Cavalli dress broke as they were zipping it up minutes before I had to leave for the red carpet at Cannes last year. The solution? My amazing team had to sew me into the dress on the way in the five-minute car ride!”

Priyanka promised more behind the scenes stories like this in her upcoming memoir, unfinished, which is set for release on the 9th of February.
