Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence may have won a SAG award but she almost lost her dress. The 22-year-old actress was already suffering from walking pneumonia when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction as she made her way to the stage to accept her award for Outstanding Female Actor In A Leading Role.
Upon hearing her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Robert DeNiro call her to the podium, Jennifer stood up and began to hug everyone around her. It looked as though her chair ended up on top of her Christian Dior dress which tore as she walked away from the table. The damage became apparent when Lawrence climbed the stairs to the stage and the material above her thigh slid down her leg.
- The malfunction did not seem to faze the young star as she gave her acceptance speech in which she humbly thanked MTV for giving her the small role that earned her a SAG card at 14.
- Some reports claim there was no malfunction and that the gown was designed that way with tiered material.

News, “I’m trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount’s onboard.” The former SNL head writer even joked that perhaps Mariah Carey could play the role of Regina George’s mother since the singer is such a huge fan of the movie.
