Wardrobe Malfunction

I read this article from Yahoo! Entertainment this morning..

Thank goodness Billy Bush was there.

Though celebrities, more often than not, seem uncomfortable in the presence of Hollywood reporters, Katherine Heigl was undoubtedly thrilled to have the "Access Hollywood" personality by her side when she experienced a near-miss wardrobe malfunction.
On Thursday evening, as she was accepting the honor of Female Star of the Year at the ShoWest Awards, Heigl's dress fell apart. Bush graciously leapt to the rescue, holding her shoulder strap in place.

 Billy Bush to the rescue!

Yes, just when fans thought they wouldn't be seeing quite as much of Heigl -- it was recently announced that she, most likely, would no longer be appearing on "Grey's Anatomy" -- attendees of the event nearly saw much more of Heigl than they ever expected.

With Bush at her side, Miss "Izzie Stevens" was able to carry on with her acceptance speech. A short while later, as she was backstage posing for photographers, Billy's helpful hand was replaced by a pin.

After the incident, Billy took to his Twitter account, summarizing the night's events in less than 140 characters: "Oh my, hosting showest awards in LV. Heigl comes up to get award, dress strap breaks...I hold her top on while she accepts!"

Earlier in the evening, the managing director of ShoWest, Robert Sunshine, mentioned Heigl's "ever-present charm and innate talent." It was charm and talent that wound up being put to the test when she took to the podium.

Heigl's bare shoulder wasn't all she displayed at the Las Vegas gala. The rom-com darling also showed off her new hairdo: The famously blonde actress is now brunette.

For those unfamiliar with the ShoWest Awards ceremony, it is a yearly trade show thrown by The National Organization of Theatre Owners (or NATO for short... yes, really). This year's convention was held in Las Vegas.

This year's Male Star of the Year winner -- not needing any assistance from Billy Bush -- was Sam Worthington from "Avatar." Past Female Star of the Year winners include Rachel McAdams (2009), Anne Hathaway (2008), and Kirsten Dunst (2007).
