Jennifer Lawrence will be feeling red-faced and sheepish this morning after she tripped up the stage on her way to collect the award for Best Actress at last night’s Oscars 2013.
Despite scooping one of the most coveted accolades of the evening, the Silver Linings Playbook actress has instead made headlines for her epic fall, which shocked the audience and resulted in an amazing standing ovation.
But it was on her way to collect the award, that Jen tripped on the hem of her amazing Dior Haute Couture dress and landed halfway up the stairs on her knees with her head in her hands. Cringe!
Knight in shining armour Hugh Jackman leapt from his front row seat to help her up, but she quickly composed herself and made it to the top. Phew!
The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin presented her with the award, and as the audience rose to their feet, she said: “Thank you so much. This is nuts. You guys are only standing up because I fell and you feel bad. That was embarrassing!”
Bless. Jen told Ryan Seacrest earlier in the evening that she’d already had a whopping six inches cut off the hem of her dress as it was too long. Her Brian Attwood shoes could also have been the culprit. Don’t worry, Jen – we’ve all taken a tumble in our party heels. RM
