May 20 (UPI) --
Eva Longoria was not expecting to have to deal with rain when she chose to wear an Atelier Versace gown to the Cannes Film Festival red carpet this weekend.
The Daily Mail reports Longoria, who was attending the "Jimmy P.: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian" premiere, suffered from a wardrobe malfunction as she had to hike up her long seafoam green skirt to keep it from getting wet.
Because the skirt featured a "dangerously high slit," the actress ended up exposing a little more thigh than she would've liked while climbing a flight of stairs. At least she was able to keep her Versace gown dry.
