Adriana Lima turned some heads when she turned up at the 2017 Met Gala red carpet at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The reason she caught so many eyes may have been for something other than her beauty—the Brazilian narrowly avoided a possibly embarrassing wardrobe malfunction when her sexy black design split up the middle and almost showed her lady bits. Uh oh!

For the Rei Kawakubo/Comme de Garçon: Art of the In-Between Costume Institute Gala, the 35-year-old Victoria's Secret Victoria's Secret supermodel opted for a plunging black bodysuit with a sky-high slit skirt (both by Alberta Ferretti), which she paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and Chopard jewelry. Despite the almost malfunction, the brunette stood firm in her sultry red carpet stance.

Not having her split-dress split upon seems like quite a challenge to us!

More than previous years, this year's Met Gala is all about pushing the boundaries of fashion. The label Comme des Garçons, which is French for "like some boys," is designed by Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, who is known to be very secretive. She's also known for staying out of the spotlight and refusing to do interviews. The elusive designer has also refused to attend many of her own runway shows. 

Founded in Tokyo in 1973, the brand specializes in "anti-fashion." Kawakubo has frequently sent designs down the runway that challenge conventions of fashion and beauty. 

From unusual shapes to bold fabrics, tonight's gala promises to be quite the spectacle!
