    Looking back on the moment, Jessica says she was "a little embarrassed" but it was all okay, because she had Paul Mescal and Courtney B. Vance helping her!

    "I tripped on the stairs — but I had two very handsome men helping me up, so that wasn't so bad," she told People magazine.

    Jessica later blamed the fall on being "trapped" in her dress but said it really didn't bother her that much.
