Unless you've been living under a rock, it's pretty safe to say that you've seen at least one of Estefania Pessoa's TikToks. And in case you missed it, she got flown out to London to cover the Dune premiere. But things didn't exactly go as planned...

The sassy New York influencer has been reaching new levels of fame since finding huge success in her viral pop culture TikToks about celebrity breakups. The world can't seem to get enough of her, so she landed the deal of a lifetime: Warner Brothers Pictures flew her out to London, England to cover the red carpet at the Dune premiere on October 18th. The 31-year-old influencer even snagged a designer dress for the occasion: a velvet floor-length dress from Annie's Ibiza. From professional hair and makeup to a chance to speak with Jason Momoa and Zendaya, what could have gone wrong?

Well, it turned out that what Tefi thought was a "futuristic" hole on the dress's side was actually meant to have her leg go through it to create a high-slit look. Unfortunately, by the time she learned about the true intention of the dress, it was too late. But it made for a hilarious TikTok the next day. "Guys, thank you so much for the support, but I'm freaking out," Tefi said in embarrassment. "I just learned that my leg was supposed to go through that stupid freaking hole."

Tefi went on to explain that the brand tried to get in touch but she was too busy chatting to celebs on the red carpet to realize what went wrong. "Why can't I dress myself?" the TikToker yelled into the camera while laughing. "I'm an adult!" Lucky for Tefi, her fellow Red Carpet goers didn't seem to mind as she chatted away to Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, and Jason Mamoa.
