Harry Potter author J.K. ROWLING was left red-faced after suffering a 'wardrobe malfunction' at a literary awards ceremony in London.
The writer was attending the Galaxy British Book Awards on Wednesday (09Apr08) - where she was honoured for her outstanding achievement - when her purple satin gown slipped off her chest.
Mark Hutchinson, her press aide, was on hand to cover Rowling's modesty, shielding her right breast with his hand and holding up the front of her dress.
It's not the first time Rowling has been left feeling overexposed - on a book tour of the U.S. last year (07), her dress slipping during a reading, exposing her white bra underneath.
