Jennifer Lawrence is turning into this season's golden girl of the celebrity awards season and she's not about to let anything like a ripped dress keep her off the red carpet!
Despite battling walking pneumonia and an unexpected red carpet mishap, the "Hunger Games" star put on a happy face and turned up the glam for the 19th Annual Screen Actor Guild Awards on Sunday night. For the big event, the actress slipped into a curve-hugging dark blue Dior Couture gown that made it a wee bit difficult to move around.
All was well until the the young star headed to the stage to accept the award of "Best Female Actor in a Film" for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook" when her gown appeared to come undone. Just as she made her grand arrival at the stage inside the Shrine Auditorium, she gown appeared to split mid-thigh (see the photos here) as she pulled her gown up to walk up the stairs. Viewers of the show we given a brief glimpse of the sheer lining that separated the tiered gown's fitted top from cascading bottom.
The actress was completely unfazed by the moment and went on to triumphantly accept the accolades from her peers.
In the world of constant celebrity attention, we're are privy to more and more of these red carpet blunders that are immediately captured and sent through the social networking atmosphere. Here are some of the other embarrassing red carpet malfunctions we have seen lately:
Nicole Scherzinger: The "X Factor UK" judge has been walking the red carpets for years so you think she would make sure her gowns pass the flash test! Earlier this month, the singer turned up at the National Television Awards in London in a beautiful skin-hugging long-sleeved dress that looked absolutely amazing. This issue? The moment the photographers flashes hit the gown it went totally sheer exposing the fact that she definitely didn't wear a bra to the big event.
Eva Longoria: The former "Desperate Housewives" star had a major red carpet faux pas when her gorgeous lacy black Emilio Pucci gown, that was already cut up to there, got snagged and almost went much further at the 2013 Golden Globes. As the actress was making her way down the press line, her thigh high split nearly showed off all of her bits and pieces after getting caught on some tape markings on the carpet. Thankfully this wasn't the actress' first rodeo and she quickly covered up all that needed covering before they could be captured by the flood of photographers.
Julianne Hough: Nothing can keep her from dancing - not even an expensive designer gown! The former "Dancing with the Stars" pro literally danced her low-cut Jenny Packham gown to death at the 2013 Golden Globes after-parties. The "Footloose" star started the night in a gorgeous 30s inspired dress and ended the night with two seams ripped all the way up to her thighs. She shared the wardrobe malfunction on Twitter writing, "Ummm I think I may have danced to hard . . . Eeek!!!! I love dance regardless of how expensive a dress may be.... You can't hold me down!!! :)"
