Jennifer Lawrence narrowly escaped being completely exposed as her dress came close to tearing in half as she headed on stage to collect her statue for Best Female Actor in a Leading Role at SAG Awards 2013.
In front of a glittering audience of stars, Jennifer Lawrence, 22, revealed a little too much of her body in a Christian Dior tiered dress.
Disaster struck as her name was read out to recognize her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
Shooting up from her chair and hugging people around her, Jennifer Lawrence failed to notice someone had planted the leg of their chair on her navy Dior gown.
Keen to get on stage, Jennifer Lawrence attempted to run off tearing her skirt of her dress at the point where the skirt meets the underskirt with sheer lining.
The sheer lining and skirt, which was fresh from the Paris Haute Couture runway, is hidden under the top tier of the gown.
Jennifer Lawrence dress rips at SAG Awards 2013 as she walks to collect Best Female Actor statue
As she headed to the stage, Jennifer Lawrence further exposed herself as she hitched up the dress to negotiate the stairs revealing her thighs.
The cast members of Breaking Bad turned around shocked as the stricken star realized at their table she was in trouble.
Fellow actresses Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard certainly felt the young woman’s pain, and were caught on camera reacting to the dress’ tearing.
Like a professional, Jennifer Lawrence quickly pushed the ripped section of dress under the gown’s existing tuck and strode towards the stage.
Once there, Jennifer Lawrence once again narrowly missed showing off more than she planned to as the dress slipped apart.
Holding the frock together a breathless – either from her pneumonia or shock – Jennifer Lawrence accepted her best actress award.
Jennifer Lawrence thanked her co-stars, her family and mega producer Harvey Weinstein.
Argo, Iran hostage drama directed by Ben Affleck, has won the top honor for overall cast performance at 2013 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.
Jennifer Lawrence took the best actress award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, while Daniel Day-Lewis was named best actor for Lincoln.
Tommy Lee Jones and Anne Hathaway won the supporting actor awards for Lincoln and Les Miserables respectively.
ITV’s Downton Abbey also picked up a prize for best TV drama series cast.
Argo beat Les Miserables, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook to win the top award.
“This has nothing to do with me,” said BenAffleck, who both directed and starred in Argo.
“It has to do with the incredible people who were in this movie.”
The prize came a day after Argo won the top honor at the Producers Guild Awards, the winner of whose best film prize often goes on to win best picture at the Oscars.
Ben Affleck’s film tells the fact-based story of how US diplomats stranded in Tehran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution were spirited out of the country.

As he accepted his award for best actor on Sunday, Day-Lewis remarked that “it was an actor that murdered Abraham Lincoln”.
“Somehow it is only so fitting that every now and then an actor tries to bring him back to life again,” he went on.
In the television categories Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey were named best comedy actor and actress for 30 Rock, giving Baldwin his seventh consecutive SAG win.
The prize for best ensemble comedy series cast went to Modern Family.

Veteran actor Dick Van Dyke, star of Mary Poppins and Diagnosis Murder, was presented with the guild’s life achievement award.
After waiting on stage for a prolonged standing ovation to end, Dick Van Dyke, 87, said: “That does an old man a lot of good.”
Other winners at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday included Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, which won the animation category, and Searching for Sugar Man, which took the documentary prize.
Homeland also won the award for best television drama series, while Modern Family was named best comedy series for a third consecutive year.

The former Alias actor can next be seen in NBC drama series Deception and says the drama series is like “dessert” because it is everything he ever wanted.
He said: “I’m a lucky actor, I work. But this is the first series that’s come along since Eli Stone, three years ago, that I really wanted to do.
“It was smart, it was interesting, it was dynamic and it wasn’t like the show was going to rest on me.
“I thought this was the perfect thing at this point in my life. It had everything I like, the complexity of the character, the family drama, all of the duplicity.
“For an actor, it’s like getting a dessert – like getting what you hope for and rarely get.
“I love to work and I love the idea of going to work every day and also the fact that I get to do it in New York. It’s like a gift. I feel like I won the lottery.”
