'The Office' star Jenna Fischer appears on TV in towel after wardrobe malfunction

Star of The Office Jenna Fischer handled a wardrobe malfunction magnificently this week, appearing on late night television wearing a towel. 

The actress was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her new television show, but told the host that the zipper broke on the dress she was planning to wear, after she "waited a little too long to get dressed".  

"I panicked," a flustered Fischer explained to a surprised Kimmel.

"But I'm a Missouri girl and the show must go on."  

Her outfit did have its upsides, though.  "I've never been more comfortable," the Emmy nominated actress continued. "I am mentally a little freaking out that I'm on a talk show in a towel, but I'm physically very comfortable."

"I feel like I ran into you at the spa," Kimmel replied.

Fischer paired her towel with a pair of jeans and some heels, showing it off on Instagram after the show.

Fischer appeared on The Office from 2005 to 2013.
