Jennifer Lawrence’s Dress Did Not Rip At SAG Awards

Although it looked like the star suffered a wardrobe malfunction that apparently wasn't the case at all! We're so glad she avoided a fashion blunder. 22-year-old rising Hollywood star, Jennifer Lawrence, donned a gorgeous dark blue Christian Dior gown at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA on Jan. 27. Upon receiving her award for best performance by a female actor in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer shocked the crowd by showing a little more leg than expected when she stood up. At first, the shocking reveal left us thinking her dress ripped -- but apparently that wasn't the case!

What everyone thought to be a major fashion malfunction turned out to be nothing more than a little lift of the layered tulle. As Jennifer approached the stage, she delicately ruched her dress, creating a split between the top and the skirt of the satin piece. This classic beauty revealed more leg than usual beneath the sheer material, drawing all of the attention to the presumed fashion flaw. It probably didn’t help that the cameras caught her staggering when she rose from her seat when the dress got caught on her chair. As we could have expected, Jennifer recovered from the stumble with grace and poise before confidently continuing to the stage. She even took a second to laugh at herself!

So, what’s the real story? A spokesperson for Christian Dior Couture confirms that it was definitely not a rip. “The dress is made with different levels of tulle and satin and that is what the viewers saw when Jennifer lifted her dress slightly. It was not ripped and there was no malfunction…it was the design of the gown,” explains the spokesperson. Had she not lifted the skirt to insure a graceful strut up to the stage, no one would have ever known about the tiered layers.

A lot goes into crafting a couture gown, so it comes as no surprise that layers of fabric made up the gorgeous gown.
What do YOU think? Is the big reveal totally embarrassing or really not a big deal?
