Video: Jennifer Lawrence suffers wardrobe malfunction
It should have been the most illustrious moment in her blossoming career so far, but when The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence stood to collect her award at Sunday night’s SAG awards, it wasn’t just her stage presence she showed off.
The unfortunate confluence of a streamlined and strapless Dior couture gown and an unrelenting chair leg on its hem meant the luxury fabric’s stress points were tested to breaking point, resulting in a tectonic rupture and some public pants. Such is the genius of the recently installed designer at Dior, Raf Simons, that even post-rip the damage looked deliberate. The fish-tailed bathing suit result was not unlike something Cher might wear to an award ceremony on purpose.
Lawrence retains her crown for being Hollywood’s most normal leading lady after laughing the whole thing off. Imagine what would have happened if it had been Gwyneth who flashed her gusset. No, the only victim here is that poor dress, exquisitely crafted and precious, ruined by the clumsiness of some anonymous oaf. We all know how annoying it is when one of them puts their foot on your coat or knocks your bag over. It’s remarkably impressive that Lawrence didn’t just turn round and lamp whoever did this to her.
