London: Hollywood beauty Hillary Swank has committed the most-dreaded fashion faux pas ever, as she unwittingly revealed hairy armpits during a red carpet event.

The double Oscar winner made the grooming error as she joined her contemporaries at Elle Magazine`s Women in Hollywood Tribute party in Los Angeles.

While 36-year-old looked stunning in a gold Calvin Klein bustier dress, but was let down by her hairy armpits, reported Daily Mail online.

Swank is the latest in a list of famous women who have bared their hairy pits on the red carpet, including Beyonce Knowles and Drew Barrymore.

But the most infamous hairy faux pas was committed by `Pretty Woman` star Julia Roberts who gave the world a look at her underarm hair at the 1999 London premiere of `Notting Hill`.

Monique who won a Best Supporting Actress trophy for her turn in the film `Precious`, had grabbed headlines when she showed off hairy legs on the Golden Globes red carpet.

The actress hitched up her full-length gown to show off her less than smooth legs on the red carpet at the star-studded event.
