Adriana Lima's Backwards Dress: Did The Model Make A Fashion Faux-Pas? (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

When you're a Victoria's Secret Angel, you can pretty much look good in anything, whether it's a bejeweled set of undies or a metallic bandage dress. But what about a dress worn incorrectly?

Adriana Lima proved her superhuman status once again when she attended the II BrazilFoundation Gala Miami 2013 Monday night. The 31-year-old mom looked pretty flawless in a peek-a-boo gown from Alberta Ferretti's Spring 2012 runway, but there was one hitch: The dress appeared to be on backwards.

Fortunately, the model isn't alone in her fashion faux pas. Stars like Amanda Seyfried and Angelina Jolie have each stepped out on the red carpet in dresses worn backwards (whether on purpose or not...). Of course, we realize that we could be the ones confused -- stars get custom gowns made for them all the time. In fact, Sigourney Weaver just had to clear up reports that her now-infamous Lanvin number was worn back-to-front. "I did not wear it backward. The label is huge, so you’d have to be a cretin not to know which way to put it on. As if you don’t get dressed with 40 people taking care of your hair and makeup!" she told New York Magazine this month.

Moral of the story? If your dress was worn correctly, let us know, Adriana. Either way, you look great. Check out the photos of the look on Adriana and on the Alberta Ferretti runway below and tell us what you think happened here.
