Madonna almost came a cropper as she stepped out in a ridiculous pair of sky high platform heels on Friday.
The singer, 58, attended the Billboard Women in Music luncheon at Pier 36 in New York City, and as she exited the venue she very nearly face planted.
The star was taking a step down from the curb as she lost her footing in the not-so practical footwear.
Fortunately she managed to regain her balance before doing any real damage.
She also had a trusty security team around her who looked like they were ready to catch her.
The star looked like she meant business as she teamed the fierce heels with an eye-popping silk suit.
Meanwhile, inside the venue she appeared to be a lot more steady on her feet as she posed for pictures on the red carpet.
During the event, the star was honoured as Woman of the Year and almost welled up as she gave her impassioned speech.
“I always feel better with something hard between my legs,” she joked.
“I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer,” Madonna continued. “Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse.”
