The red carpet at London's grand Royal Opera House was awash with stars for Sunday night's Olivier Awards, the prestigious ceremony honouring achievements in London plays, musicals, operas and dance performances.

Joining Nicole Scherzinger, Dame Judi Dench, Russell Tovey, Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and Downton Abbey's Laura Carmichael was classical singer Camilla Kerslake, who arrived on the arm of her boyfriend, England rugby captain Chris Robshaw, and managed to steal the limelight on the red carpet in a very revealing, floor-length black gown.

Of course, the downside of a very revealing gown is often a potentially embarrassing wardrobe malfunction and that's exactly what happened to Camilla. But she took it in her stride and has actually given us all a step-by-step guide on what to do if a skimpy frock ever tries to get the better of us…
