Sarah Hyland Avoids Explosive Wardrobe Malfunction at Golden Globes

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."
