Professional dancer and actress Julianne Hough ripped her dress on both ends at a Golden Globes after party on Sunday after trying to show off her dance moves.
The 24-year-old ripped her pale pink Jenny Packham gown up both legs at InStyle's party but rather than being embarrassed, she poked fun at herself. She shared a photo of her rips with her online followers, posting a series of pictures on her Twitter page and Instagram.

In one picture a friend stands next to her with her hand over her mouth in shock as Hough pulls an uncomfortable face, while in another she points at her bare legs, visible through the ripped slits up each side of the gown.
She wrote on Twitter, "Ummm I think I may have danced too hard.... Eeek!!!! Ummm again... I love to dance regardless of how expensive a dress may be... You can't hold me down!!! :)."
Even her brother and "Dancing with the Stars" professional Derek Hough got in on the laughs. He retweeted one of his sister's pictures and wrote "And After... Ha ha." Julianne then replied with "Dancing the night away!!!"
Julianne first arrived at the Golden Globes ceremony wearing a white and gold Monique Lhullier gown with Jerome C. Rousseau heels and a Ferragamo clutch. She posed for camera on the red carpet with boyfriend Ryan Seacrest, 38, who wore a grey and black suit with a black bowtie.
The "Footloose" actress made headlines earlier this month when she revealed that she had been mentally and verbally abused as a child. She spoke about it in Cosmopolitan's February issue and said the abuse began when she was living in London, away from her parents in Utah, studying dance.
"I was abused, mentally, physically, everything," she said.
While attending Italia Conti Academy of Arts, she said adults around her took advantage of her being alone without any parental supervision.
"I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer," she added. "I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy façade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl."
Her next film, "Safe Haven," opens Feb. 14. The film is about a girl who survives an abusive ex-boyfriend and falls in love with a widower, played by Josh Duhamel.
