HUGH GRANT had a last-minute fashion disaster at last night's (21JAN01) GOLDEN GLOBE awards - after his designer suit got locked in his suitcase.
Grant, who came to support his SMALL TIME CROOKS co-star TRACEY ULLMAN after she was nominated for BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS, told America presenter and fashion interrogator JOAN RIVERS that he nearly didn't make it to the event because of a packing mishap.
Grant admitted, "I'm lucky to be wearing anything because I couldn't open my suitcase. I've had half the MONDRIAN hotel trying to crowbar open my suitcase for the last two hours." The NOTTING HILL star, who split from girlfriend ELIZABETH HURLEY last year (00) after a 12-year relationship, escorted a mystery blonde down the star-studded red carpet. (LE/WNV/KW)
