Call the fashion police! 

Tom Ford presented his Autumn/Winter 2015 womenswear collection at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on Feb. 20, but unfortunately there was more drama going on behind the scenes than on the designer's runway. A-listers including Gwyneth Paltrow, Amy Adams, and Reese Witherspoon packed into the pre-Oscar event, but one seat in particular was still empty by the time the venue's house lights went dim — Beyonce's!  


"Beyonce had a huge wardrobe malfunction at the show," a source told Us Weekly. "Her dress ripped all the way up the back and she had to run backstage to find something else to wear." 

The usual run of a fashion show is less than five minutes, so the "7/11" singer, 33, missed all the action and a prime photo op in Ford's new duds. "The people back there couldn't get it fixed in time, so she had to miss the show," the source revealed. "Beyonce was so embarrassed, [but] she was really cool about it." 


Mrs. Carter changed into a long black crystal mosaic dress from the Spring 2014 collection, per a release sent out by the brand the next day, Feb. 21. 

Afterwards, the Carters were photographed together — Jay Z in a black suit and Beyonce in her plan-B look. "Her dress ripped on the way there and she snuck backstage and was given that black dress to change into," the source said. "She was the latest person to the show and only caught the last few minutes of it." 


Beyonce had a less dramatic night in her long white Marni dress during the Vanity Fair Oscar 2015 afterparty on Sunday, Feb. 22. Queen Bey danced the night away with her younger sister Solange and Jennifer Lopez.

A Tom Ford spokesperson had no comment.
