According to an Associated Press story, Jennifer Lawrence’s brief flash of leg at the SAG Awards wasn’t a wardrobe malfunction — it was an intended function of the dress.
The “Hunger Games” and “X-Men: First Class” star won a Screen Actors Guild Award Sunday night for her work in “Silver Linings Playbook.” As she walked up the stairs, her upper leg was visible through her gown, leading to twitter and internet speculation that her skirt ripped, though there was no rip visible as she spoke from the stage.
The design house Dior Couture told The Associated Press the dress performed as expected.
According to the AP story:
The design house said Lawrence’s gown was designed by Raf Simons “with different levels of tulle and satin.” That was what viewers saw on television when she lifted her gown to walk upstairs.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is set for release on Nov. 22, while “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is aimed for a July 18, 2014 release.
