You would think that wearing expensive gowns would guarantee comfort but for celebs like Nicole Kidman and Sharon Stone at Cannes 2013, the exact opposite looks to be true.

After seeing Cannes film festival jury member Nicole Kidman sport a black leather dress in the notoriously hot (but chic) city, we wondered if she was sweating buckets.

Then we saw "Basic Instinct" star Sharon Stone carefully navigate her way around a yacht while wearing a plunging red gown with a thigh-high slit. (That dress is so dangerous she should have worn a life vest.)

But neither of those A-Listers could compare to poor Rosario Dawson, who accidentally flashed her undies in front of her co-stars and photographers while walking up stairs at the "Jimmy P.: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian" premiere last weekend.

Many more celebs teetered and tottered on the red carpet wearing outlandish and precarious outfits. Someone get these women some proper shoes and duct tape, stat!
