Supermodel Heidi Klum went on an American TV show to publicise a jewel-studded lingerie set - but managed to break the bra before she could show it off.
But moments before she revealed the expensive look, Heidi groaned, "I think my bra has broken."
Leno and comedian Martin Short, also a guest on the show, rushed to her aid, trying to fix the bra and then offering Heidi their jackets to keep her modesty intact.
Heidi failed to fix the bra - but did managed to remove her knickers and show those off to the astonished audience. She was then heard whispering, "We need to go to a commercial."
During the ad break, smitten stagehands repaired the MOUWAD-designed bra with tape, and sultry Heidi later modeled it properly.
A show insider reveals, "Once filming had finished there were a lot of nervous faces backstage. The bra is going to the repair shop."16/10/2003 02:03
