Dakota Johnson laughed off her flirtation with wardrobe malfunction at the People’s Choice Awards last night, saying “it’s not like everybody here hasn’t already seen my boobs!”

The 26 year old American star, who shot to fame after appearing as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey last year, was accepting her award for Favourite Dramatic Movie Actress at the awards ceremony on Wednesday night (January 6th) when a hug from presenter Leslie Mann apparently damaged her dress.

Reaching behind her back to fasten herself back in to her silver Armani crop top dress, Johnson gamely made light of the brush with embarrassment, exclaiming “Leslie just broke my dress!” before referencing her famous role.

Johnson stars alongside Leslie and Alison Brie (also presenting the award) in the forthcoming Judd Apatow comedy How To Be Single, and while embracing her co-stars the back straps of her dress got tangled up with Leslie’s hand, as she could be heard saying “you just broke my dress!”. Mann said reassuringly “it’s okay, we got it” despite stifling giggles.

“Thank you so much, to the fans. This is really insane. I was just excited to even be nominated,” she said while accepting the prize. “You guys have completely rocked my world and changed my life. I am so incredibly grateful… …Jamie Dornan I couldn't have done it without you.”

Johnson had beaten competition from fellow nominees Blake Lively (Age of Adaline), Jennifer Lopez (The Boy Next Door), Rachel McAdams (Spotlight) and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) to win the award.

The People’s Choice Awards also saw Ellen DeGeneres scoop the Favourite Humanitarian Award, Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock win the Favourite Movie Actor and Actress gongs respectively, and a stage-crasher interrupting the co-hosts of ‘The Talk’, who were accepting their prize for Favourite Daytime TV Hosting Team.
