The new mum put on a brave face and shared the news with her followers on Instagram.
“So I’m about to walk out on stage to MC a big launch event tonight at the MCA and this happens,” she said.
Bridges said a backup pair were on their way but worried they might not get to her in time.
“Somewhere in Sydney CBD there is a taxi driving with another pair of shoes for me….will they get here in time??!!” she said.
The post may have begun as a gaffe but it soon transformed into a brainstorming session for fans offering advice.
Many users suggested Bridges simply forgo wearing shoes and attend the event shoeless and proud.
