Skater Gabriella terms wardrobe malfunction as 'worst nightmare'

The offending outfit was a fringed, sequined green costume that appeared to come unhooked under the hand of Papadakis' partner, Guillaume Cizeron, partway through their short program performance.

All this less than 24 hours after the self-described "nightmare" incident in which Papadakis breast was left briefly exposed to the shock of millions of worldwide TV viewers. Papadakis was on the verge of tears as she left the ice.

And to add insult to injury, the incident was replayed in slow motion on screens at the arena.

"It was my worst nightmare, happening at the Olympics", Papadakis said.

"It was pretty distracting", Papadakis said after the competition.

After finding themselves in fourth place following Monday's short dance, American brother-and-sister team Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani scored 114.86 in their free dance to jump over some U.S. teammates to win bronze with a total of 192.59.

But the skaters were able to finish the routine without any issues and have since had the dress altered.

"It wasn't easy to get back on the ice today, but I think we were ready for whatever after what happened yesterday", Cizeron told Yahoo!

"It is just frustrating to miss a few points because of a costume issue", Cizeron said after the short dance.

"That was our attitude throughout the whole routine, but [the break] really affected us during the "twizzle" [pirouettes] because when you're spinning around, it's hard to keep your dress on when it's no longer holding itself up".

French ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis just had a major wardrobe malfunction while performing at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.

On day three of the 2018 Games, South Korean skater Yura Min's red dress came undone at the shoulder as she and partner Alexander Gamelin embarked on their routine. "Her swinging short program ... was threatening to go down in history alongside Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction during her halftime performance at the Super Bowl".

Both incidents still pale compared to Russian skater Ekaterina Rubleva's full-frontal boob flash at the 2009 European championships when her pink dress slipped down nearly to her stomach.
