Madelaine Petsch Avoids a Wardrobe Malfunction Thanks to Lili Reinhart


Madelaine Petsch was a safety pin away from sharing more than just her win with her fans.

Madelaine Petsch wore a stunning pink sequin and chiffon Prada gown to the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, but it seems the seams couldn’t handle the celebration.


Although Lili Reinhart and Petsch’s Riverdale characters are frenemies on the CW show, offscreen the co-stars are friends who have each other’s backsliterally.

In an Instagram post, Petsch revealed that during the award ceremony, Reinhart had to ‘MacGyver’ the 23-year-olds dress with safety pins so that “her butt [didn’t] become exposed to the world.”

The dress was intact during Petsch’s Scene Stealer award acceptance speech, where she thanked fans for the unexpected win, so the wardrobe malfunction happened sometime after.

Thankfully when the outfit mishap occurred, Reinhart was there to save the day.

While Petsch did not post a follow-up picture of the dress, we’re sure the actress was able to pull off the look as if it was an intentional outfit change.
