Let's face it - days for Madonna's stylist don't come worse than last night.

Indeed, the only person who may have more right to claim they've had it worse is the dancer who tried to yank (in a choreographed way) the cape from her Madgesty's shoulders.

But stylist B Akerlund can say her day ranks right up there.

Shortly after seeing her boss fall from the stage during the BRITs last night, Akerlund posted this humorous snap to her instagram account last night.

 

In the snap, she's lying down with a seemingly shell-shocked expression, with a number of cupcakes smashed into her face.

She posted the image under the hashtags #currentmood #britawards.

Madonna blamed the topple - trending under #MadgeDown on Twitter - on her Armani cape.

She tried and failed to undo the clasp around her neck during the routine.

So when a dancer tried to yank the cape, Madonna came falling down with it.

An audible gasp from the audience could be heard after Madonna after literally came crashing down.

However, ever the pro, she continued her routine after a few seconds.

After the awards, she assured fans via instagram that she was "fine".
