Wardrobe malfunctions come with the territory when it comes to awards show, but lucky for Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, a close encounter with her gown didn't take a turn for the worst (or the worst-dressed list!).

Before the Golden Globes even began, the actress, 21, says the zipper on her dress broke.

"It just felt kind of like an explosion in my back," Hyland told E! host Giuliana Rancic on the pre-Golden Globes red carpet outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel. "And then I felt my dress start to slip, and I grabbed it before it was too late."

Also lucky for Hyland, whose show was nominated three times – including for best comedy series – Rancic was on standby when it happened prior to their interview.

Rancic joked: "I think you used my sewing kit."
