Nikki Reed Wears Dangerously Low-Cut Dress At 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' Premiere (PHOTOS)

"Wardrobe malfunction" -- two simple words that inspire fear in the heart of every red carpet walker.

But Nikki Reed looked fear in the face at the Rome Film Festival, taking to the red carpet in a dress that dipped to dangerously low depths.

Stepping out for the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1," Reed wore a white Grecian gown (gorgeous save for the awkward, ripply zipper up the back) which featured a plunging neckline and a surprisingly sheer skirt, particularly from the back view.

Reed accented her dress with some shiny new bling: the actress was married just two weeks ago to former "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald.

The frock is stunning, but from the side and back views it looks like a risky bet -- we wonder how much double-stick tape and clever undergarments this one required, Nikki.

Check out the ensemble below -- what do you think?
