Attention, amateur fashion police! Your concerns over Jennifer Lawrence’s SAG Awards dress — which appeared to have ripped Sunday night when Lawrence made her way to the podium to accept her Best Actress trophy — were unfounded. The navy dress, made by Christian Dior Couture, was designed with a split in the fabric, which, in motion, looked like a tear.
According to a statement from a spokesperson at Christian Dior Couture, there was no rip and no malfunction whatsoever.
“The dress is made with different levels of tulle and satin and that is what the viewers saw when Jennifer lifted her dress slightly,” a rep from the fashion design house told USA Today. “It was not ripped, and there was no malfunction … it was the design of the gown.”
We are so relieved to hear this news, particularly because the buzz about the possible rip in Lawrence’s dress was starting to overshadow the happiness surrounding her win and the fact that she delivered yet another excellent awards acceptance speech. This time around, she gave good ol’ MTV a shout-out, because as it turns out, Lawrence received her entry into the Screen Actors Guild because of a promo she shot with the network way back when.
“I want to thank MTV. I’ll explain that,” she said. “I earned my SAG card when I was 14 — I did an MTV promo for ‘My Super Sweet 16,’ and I remember getting it in the mail and it being the best day of my life because it made me an official actor and put me in a category with you.”Who did we pick for best dressed at the 2013 SAG Awards?
