Jennifer Lawrence had more than her fair share of battles at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night, not only was she recovering from pneumonia, but the actress seemed to suffer from an awful wardrobe malfunction in her navy blue gown while collecting her award for best actress.
The 22-year-old looked stunning on the red carpet in the navy Christian Dior strapless gown, and despite Jennifer flashing a lot of flesh as she made her way to the stage at the SAG awards – the fashion house insists that the dress was “not ripped” and there hadn’t been a “malfunction”.

‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ actress has meanwhile claimed that she will not be googling herself for pictures on the night because of the mishap.
Talking backstage with ABC News’ Chris Connelly, Jennifer said: “I fell on the ground. Somebody’s chair got stuck on my train or somebody’s foot or something.”
She then added: “I will never look at pictures of this night. That’s the only true way to happiness.”
Fellow nominee Marion Cotillard seemed to raise her eyebrows at the incident, which saw the dress separate at mid-thigh, nearly flashing her underwear.

In a statement issued Monday to USA Today, Dior said: “The dress is made with different levels of tulle and satin, and that is what the viewers saw when Jennifer lifted her dress slightly. It was not ripped, and there was no malfunction. … It was the design of the gown.”
Meanwhile, couture fashion designer Bradley Bayou, who has worked with celebrities including Halle Berry, Beyonce and Oprah Winfrey, has claimed that wearing a dress on a catwalk is very different from being at an awards’ ceremony.
“If she is just walking down the runway, she would never have a reason to lift the dress up,” he said, according to ABC News. “So, in this particular dress, you never would have known that.”
