You've Got To Hand It To JK Rowling

Hollywood "It" Girls should take a lesson from author JK Rowling on how to keep from suffering a wardrobe malfunction in front of the cameras. Here are a couple photos of JK making her exit from the British Book Awards last night while getting a helpful hand from her friend and publicist Mark Huthinson ... check it out:

Whether she intended to or not, author JK Rowling certainly made a big splash at the prestigious British Book Awards last night. The Harry Potter author opted for a waist-clinging, purple satin gown with an exceptionally low-cut front, perfectly displaying her voluminous cleavage for the ceremony. But even having £450million to your name apparently does not guarantee a decent seamstress, because she was soon the victim of an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction ... At one point during the event at the swish Grosvenor hotel in London, as JK's bosoms made a bid for freedom, a hand flashed in front of her and appeared to touch her breast. The hand did not belong to her husband, Dr Neil Murray, the father of two of her three children, but to her trusty publicist Mark Huthinson. It seemed that he was making a grab for the dress which had been struggling to contain the writer's bust all night but he later claimed it was merely an attempt to turn her towards waiting photographers. Either way, his chivalry maintained the dignity of his client who has been through an incredible transformation from a single mother writing her story ideas on a paper napkin in an Edinburgh cafe to becoming one of the wealthiest authors in history courtesy of little Harry Potter.

Well I suppose any opportunity to grope your boss in public is a good one if you can convince them that it's for their own good. Wouldn't it be a great idea if all Hollywood "It" Girls hired "handlers" to follow them around and ensure that their bobbies stay safely tucked away while they are out in public? Meh, I don't think the girls are actually smart enough to enlist this kind of help. So, until the boobie groping offensive becomes standard operating practice, I think we're bound to see more nip slips for years to come. Woot! [Source]
