Jennifer Lawrence Dress Rips? False Alarm

Jennifer Lawrence wardrobe malfunction false alarm Jennifer Lawrence seemed completely calm for someone whose dress ripped at the SAG Awards, but closer investigation suggests there really may not have been a wardrobe malfunction at all.

Jennifer Lawrence was facing a string of obstacles at the Screen Actors Guild award as she became very ill just days before the award show.

In addition to struggling with her health, an entire crowd of celebs and fans watched her struggle with her navy blue tiered dress as it ripped on her way to accept the award for Best Female Actor in a Leading Role.

The “Silver Linings Playbook” actress seemed to be shocked when her name was called to accept the award and when she stood up to head to the stage several other actors and actresses stood as well to hand out some congratulatory hugs.

This is when the supposed wardrobe malfunction took place. Reports are suggesting that someone placed their chair on top of Lawrence’s dress and when she went to walk away it ripped her dress in half right where the bottom tier of the Christian Dior gown met with the top tier.

While the 22-year-old did prove that she’s a hilarious girl who can think quick on her feet and keep calm under some rather trying circumstances, you would still expect some sort of reaction from someone who has ripped their dress in the middle of such a special moment.

Jennifer Lawrence avoids wardrobe malfunction Twitter was being set ablaze with people feeling sorry for the embarrassing wardrobe malfunction, but the guest Saturday Night Live host simply made her way to the stage and accepted her award as if nothing happened… and that’s because nothing did happen.

It is true that someone placed their chair on her dress; it didn’t tug at the gown enough to rip it. In fact you can see then funny gal simply lean down move the chair and keep on walking.

Rumors that the dress had actually torn in two were sparked by some of the other stars’ reactions when they saw the top and bottom of the gown separate.

Marion Cotillard’s eyes gaped open when she saw what she believed to be Jennifer’s dress ripping while Nicole Kidman scrunched her face and briefly held her head.

Other stars can be seen laughing during the moment but it isn’t sure if they were laughing at the fake wardrobe malfunction or if they were laughing at some thing else going on in that moment.

Either way, there is nothing to laugh at because Jen’s dress is still in tact.

So do you want to know what really happened?

A look at the navy blue gown on the runway and on the red carpet reveals that the dress is a two tiered number. While the sheer mesh covers the entire gown the navy panels of the dress beneath the see through material were separates. So in a way the one gown was actually two pieces.

When the chair snagged at The Hunger Games actress’s dress is caused it so shift out of place but it certainly didn’t rip it.

While some are still reporting the mishap as a wardrobe malfunction despite the dress not tearing, we’re not feeling the same way about it. Calling it a wardrobe malfunction would put in the same category of Janet Jackson’s big nip slip during the Super Bowl half time performance or Sofia Vergara’s gown that ripped right down the back exposing her butt.

Silver Linings Playbook actress dress rips This was a sheer panel that showed some upper thigh, not a wardrobe malfunction because the dress did exactly what it was made to do.

Either way, we’re excited to see what the comical actress has to say about the dress ripping false alarm.

For now the only thing on her mind is getting some rest and recovering after her bout with pneumonia.

She made it to the red carpet and promised her fellow actors that she was perfectly fine.

“I’m fine. I’m fine,” she said to Fashion Police’s Giuliana Rancic. “I’m so worried everyone’s like scared of me like, ‘Are you still sick?’ No, I’m fine.”

While talking to Rancic she joked that she had walking pneumonia and was still highly contagious.

News of her illness broke when her co-star Jacki Weave had to accept Jen’s award on her behalf at Saturday’s Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts International Awards in Los Angeles.

“I’m going to receive this on her behalf,” Weave said as she accepted the award. “Poor Jen is really sick. She really is sick. She has pneumonia.”

Well she conquered sickness and avoided a real wardrobe malfunction at the SAG Awards so she’s definitely doing a great job for a relatively new big screen actress.
