So caught up! Elizabeth Banks accidentally got the heel of her designer stiletto caught in the flowing train of her dress on the 2015 Venice Film Festival red carpet on Thursday, Sept. 3.

Just as she was walking the carpet and posing for photographs at the premiere of Beasts of No Nation, Banks, 41, who is a member of the festival's jury, almost toppled over.

Luckily for the Hunger Games actress, she didn’t end up face-down on the floor. Banks even managed to gracefully remove the fabric of her stunning floral Elie Saab gown (with a matching cape and gold tube clutch by Giuseppe Zanotti) from her black Christian Louboutin sandals, laugh at herself with the crowd, and generally recover like a pro. 

Making people laugh—even at her—is Banks' forte. "I prefer doing comedy over drama," Banks told Allure in their June issue. "Making people laugh is a very addictive thing… I find making people laugh to be a really special ability. It’s like having a superpower."
