Like many guests at Sunday night's Emmy Awards, actress Kat Dennings was looking to make an impression on the red carpet.
And the 2 Broke Girls star certainly stood out from the crowd in a daring red strapless number.
The combination of low-cut neckline and her ample cleavage left the 26-year-old slouching for fear of a wardrobe malfunction.

Taking the plunge: 2 Broke Girls star Kat Dennings shows off her cleavage in a low-cut J Mendel dress at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night
'Nervous': The busty star admitted she was scared of standing up straight in case she came out of her dress
Although the brunette star looked stunning in the J Mendel creation – which she teamed with Christian Louboutin heels and Neil Lane jewellery, she admitted she was finding it hard to relax in the gown.
She told E! on the red carpet: 'I'm very nervous. If I stand up too straight, there's a possibility…
'So if I hunch, that's why. It's not because I have terrible posture, it's from fear of things coming out.'
Va va voom: The dress was reminiscent of the one worn by the cartoon Jessica Rabbit
The actress was at the star-studded Los Angeles ceremony to share presenting duties with Two And A Half Men star Jon Cryer.
The pair ended up presenting Julie Bowen with Outstanding Supporting Comedy Actress for Modern Family.
Ahead of the bash at Nokia Theatre, Kat arrived on the red carpet with boyfriend Nick Zano.
