SAG Awards 2013: Jennifer Lawrence DIDN’T Rip Her Dior Dress

Jennifer Lawrence left her sick bed to pick up the award for Best Actress at last night’s SAG Awards in LA.

But the star, who has been suffering from pneumonia, managed to make headlines for reasons other than her illness or her award this morning.

The 22-year-old’s navy blue satin Christian Dior Haute Couture gown appeared to get caught underneath the leg of a chair as she made her way to the stage, revealing a sheer panel at the top of her thighs.

Marion Cotillard and Nicole Kidman looked on in horror, believing Jen to have ripped her gown completely, but on closer inspection at the original runway pics – and the dress itself – we can reveal that the gown actually features two satin panels connected by a sheer piece of fabric. So it wasn’t the dress disaster everyone thought. Phew!

Jen almost didn’t make it to the ceremony – talking about her illness on the red carpet, she said: “Everyone is scared of me, I’m like, ‘I’m fine’. I had walking pneumonia and it is highly contagious.”

The star was still smiling despite feeling poorly and everyone thinking she’d destroyed her couture gown. And that’s why we heart her.
