Rosie Huntington-Whiteley risks wardrobe malfunction in dress with hip-high slit

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley got daringly close to a wardrobe malfunction while making an appearance at the 76th Cannes Film Festival.

The former Victoria’s Secret model wore a black Valentino gown with a hip-high slit just barely covering her bum while at the “Club Zero” premiere Monday.

The dress also featured a gaping back with open sides to match, complete with a contrasting white bow.

In photos of Huntington-Whiteley ascending the red-carpeted steps of the premiere, the Rose Inc. founder’s black stilettos nearly missed the hem of her dress.

However, the model — who has been dating Jason Statham since 2009 — narrowly escaped the outfit plunder and carried on looking stunning as ever.

The model completed her daring look with a white bow, black stilettos and silver and diamond jewelry.

As for the rest of the look, Huntington-Whiteley tied the daring look together with stacked silver and diamond bracelets, a ring and dangling white earrings. Her hair was in an elegant tied-back look as her dirty blond tresses graced her mid-back in a subtle wave.

The 36-year-old British model was recently in Rome with her fiancé — who confirmed their engagement at the 2016 Golden Globes — for the “Fast X” premiere on May 12.

“It was a fast & furious kinda thing 💥,” the model wrote via Instagram on May 14, showcasing her and her action star beau’s matching all-black fits.

Huntington-Whiteley had another bold high-slit dress for that event as well, showing off some skin with sheer tights that covered her legs and right arm as the one-armed black Dolce & Gabbana dress wrapped across her body. The bold ensemble was completed with a black corset.

Statham matched in a black suit with red pinstripes and his signature shades.

The couple share two children together: Jack Oscar, 5, and Isabella, 1.
