Here's What Made Jennifer Lawrence's Dress Slip At The SAG Awards

If you were watching the Screen Actors Guild Awards, you may have noticed something odd when Jennifer Lawrence went to accept the award for Best Actress.  

Her dress visibly appeared to rip or slip revealing her thighs as she made her way to the stage.  

Here’s the GIF via Tumblr:

Many, including a few fashion sites, thought the dress may have ripped in half:

It seemed like everything was OK, since Lawrence smoothed the top part of her dress down, and accepted her award as if nothing ever occurred.

So, what was up with the dress?

It didn’t rip.

If you take a closer look at Lawrence’s Dior gown, it appears she was wearing an elaborate two piece.

According to E!, that’s exactly what happened. Lawrence’s Christian Dior Haute Couture dress was simply a layered gown and slipped when she took the stage:

“The original gown, which was revealed on the runway at a couture fashion show on Monday, showed clear distinctions that were connected by sheer lining. Lawrence’s dress, however, had the lining hidden, so people couldn’t really tell that it was a tiered gown.”
