Celebrities may have fame, fortune, and access to gorgeous designer duds, but even they can fall victim to embarrassing and awkward moments. (See, they really are just like us!)

Case in point: Hayden Panettiere, who suffered a less-than-graceful incident while attending the 2014 MET Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While the 24-year-old Nashville star looked gorgeous in her pastel gown, the dress proved to be a problem for walking down red carpet stairs. Not only did Hayden trip on the hem of her Dennis Basso creation (we’re sure sky-high Jimmy Choos were also part of the problem), but the moment happened right in front of fellow attendee Rihanna!

Of course, the singer couldn’t help but chuckle as she watched the accident go down. (Sorry, Hayden, but it’s funny. You can’t really blame her!) Thankfully, the moment was over just as quickly as it begun, as Hayden laughed it off and continued her way down the stairs.

Falling on the red carpet seems to be a pretty common incident these days — just ask Jennifer Lawrence! Fortunately, when it happens to one of our favorite stars, the humanity of the moment just makes us love them even more.

Way to take it stride, Hayd!
