Izabel Goulart recalled her malfunction, "For some reason everyone was wearing clothes and they put a bikini on me. They tied up the bikini and put the top part behind my back and I was like, 'Guys, that's not going to work out. I'm not feeling comfortable with that. It's going to fall.' They're like, 'No, you're fine with this. Go, girl, go!' And then I started walking down. I was really nervous, it was my first time and I felt my bikini top falling down. I felt as I was walking something was coming down slowly and I was like, 'Oh my God, oh my God, help me' and when I completely got in front of the photographers it fell. I was just frozen and I saw everyone around me standing up and clapping and laughing" (askmen.com).
