Lawrence was heading to the stage to accept the Best Actress SAG for her role as a young, mentally ill widow in "Silver Linings Playbook," when her dress appeared to rip, exposing her thighs to both the audience at the show and millions of viewers watching at home.
Cut to shocked looks on Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard's faces and it's an almost guaranteed wardrobe malfuntion. Or was it?
'The dress is made of different levels of tulle and satin and that is what viewers saw when Jennifer lifted her dress slightly.
'It was not ripped and there was no malfunction - it was the design of the gown.'
While this wardrobe malfunction mystery has been busted, "Les Miserables" actress Amanda Seyfried was snapped accidentally flashing the cameras leaving a SAG after-party at Chateau Marmont. The actress's dress was revealed to be a little more see-through than first thought, revealing her g-string and derrière to the waiting paps as she climbed into a waiting vehicle.
With a few more events including the AACTAs, BAFTAs and Oscars still to come, one can expect plenty more red carpet wardrobe malfunctions of the awards season.
