CALIFORNIA (PIX11) —  A Miss California USA contestant suffered a n embarrassing wardrobe malfunction during the pageant’s final swimsuit competition — but she recovered like a champ.

In video obtained by TMZ, Miss Beverly Hills Chanelle Riggan was strutting in her pink bikini when her top suddenly popped off in front of hundreds of people.

Riggan didn’t miss a beat, however, and quickly grabbed the tiny bikini top back in place, and finished her walk to applause.
