What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

I recently tripped walking up to a red carpet in LA and I totally ripped a little bit of the material at the bottom of my dress! But I got right back up, put on a brave face, and still hit the carpet! I knew there was a rip at the bottom of my dress so when posing for pictures, I just flung the flowy material and used movement in order to hide my little tear in the dress. No one even noticed:)
