A visit to Paris, the City of Love, became the city of despair for one woman after her disastrous dress drama.
The tourist from Zambia, Oriana Findlay, was “feeling herself” in front of the famous Eiffel Tower.
But she nearly ended up bringing the French capital to a standstill, The Sun reported.
Her stated goal is to experience the best things in life, with a penchant for “travel, food, and fashion.”
There were some experiences, however, she would probably pay not to have.
She was all dressed up in a slinky, leopard-skin, shoestring dress for the fashion shoot.
In her post, she strode confidently away from the camera under the towering Paris landmark.
However, it was pretty clear to viewers who could see an almighty rip up the back seam of her dress.
There was very little left to the imagination as everything was on show.
“When you are feeling yourself in front of the Eiffel Tower and have no idea your dress has ripped.
“Can you believe me? I died,” she despaired.
Ooh la, sacré bleu, and any other French exclamation didn’t come close to describing her epic embarrassment when she eventually found out.
Her friend behind the lens was unable to inform her because she was busy concentrating on not getting bumped.
“The funny thing is I don’t even know when it ripped. I only found out it ripped after I looked at this video,” she cried.
Commenters offered their sympathy but could see the funny side of things.
“Honestly, I wouldn’t have noticed if I was the friend either,” said one person.
Another said: “That is a horror story.”
“Literally stopping traffic,” figured one viewer.
She had nothing to worry about said one fan: “But it still looks good.”
