Jennifer Lawrence’s dress split in half as she walked to the stage to accept her award for Best Female Actor in a Leading Role at Sunday’s SAG awards.
After her battle with pneumonia, Jennifer Lawrence attended the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held on Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium in Hollywood, California.
At the SAG awards, Lawrence won Best Female Actor in a Leading Role for her role as Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook.
As she neared the stage to accept her award, however, her Christian Dior dress separated mid-thigh. Keeping her composure, Lawrence immediately smoothed it down and seamlessly went on to thank her family, MTV, and Bradley Cooper among others.
E! News reports that- despite speculation - her dress did not rip. In fact, the gown was made up of two separate pieces connected by a sheer lining that had come apart. The public was unaware the gown was tiered because Lawrence had the lining hidden.
There was no mention of the incident backstage, either. Instead, according to Fox News, Lawrence spoke of a gift that helped her recovery.
"I got a really cool inhaler. I'm feeling a lot better."
