Sarah Hyland Wardrobe Malfunction: Golden Globes Red Carpet Mishap! (VIDEO)

It wouldn't be a high-profile red carpet without a wardrobe malfunction. Tonight at the 2012 Golden Globes, the mishap came care of Sarah Hyland, the adorable "Modern Family" actress.

Hyland's little accident came to light, of course, by the super-sleuths that are the E! correspondents. "I'm laughing," Giuliana said, "because I saw your zipper break on the red carpet! And I was like, 'E! Send a camera right over there!' "

But of course the impossibly charming Hyland took it in stride. "I kind of just felt an explosion in my back," she said, and her dress started to fall. But luckily she kept her simple zipper malfunction from turning into a much-feared nip slip. "I grabbed [my dress] before it was too late."

"You are so tiny -- there is no reason a zipper should ever explode on you," Giuliana cried with wonder. Sarah mused that maybe it was too much McDonald's that did the trick.

Please, we beg of you, Sarah: do not go on a diet.
