A controversy was sparked Sunday after Julia Orayen appeared on stage during the first 2012 presidential debate in Mexico wearing a distracting garment that took attention away from the campaign.

Officials are calling Sunday's incident an accident, blaming the situation on a production assistant who was hired by Federal Electoral Institute to help assist with the debate. Alfredo Figueroa, director of the Institute and the man responsible for organizing the event, explained that he had requested an aide in "sober dress."

Julia Orayen is a former Playboy Playmate. She has appeared in several different publications wearing little to nothing at all. On Sunday after being told to pick a long dress, Orayen said she picked the only long dress she owned.

"It was my only choice for a long dress. I didn't think it would reveal as much or cause this much scandal," she later told Tres TV Network. "I learned I like myself better when I'm covered up."

The long white dress in which Orayen took the stage was form fitting with a deep, plunging neckline that revealed more than a fair amount of cleavage. The scandal quickly took attention away from the election, with even some of the political candidates themselves admitting that they had been distracted.

Gabriel Quadri, who is running for the Alliance Party, admitted that Orayen had made a diversion in the midst of the debate.

"It is impossible not to concentrate your attention on a woman so spectacular," Quadri told MVS radio.

Orayen was given the responsibility of going on stage with an urn filled with names to decide which order the candidates would speak in.

"The best was the girl in white with the cleavage at the beginning," Mexican Foreign Minister Jorge Castaneda and New York University professor told Mercury News.
