Kate Beckinsale arrived at the 2014 Golden Globes just minutes before the show began, and you would never guess by her calm demeanor that the actress narrowly missed having a major wardrobe malfunction in public on the red carpet!

The British star admitted that just before she left, the zipper on her dress broke. She was running late to the red carpet because she had to be sewn into the gown in the car. Yikes!

Kate took the incident in stride, joking, "Otherwise it was gonna be the 'Golden Globes' -- in a bad way. It's been a rotten day."

Regardless of the zipper drama, we think Kate looked ah-maz-ing at the awards show!
