Jennifer Lawrence took a tumble last night at the Academy Awards on the way up the stairs to accept her Best Actress statue. Lucky for her, anyone can look graceful falling when they’re wearing Dior Haute Couture.
“You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell — it’s really embarrassing,” Lawerence told the audience after falling. “This is nuts!”
After accepting her award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, she told reporters in the press room what was going through her mind when she fell. “What went through my mind when I fell down? A bad word that I can’t say that starts with ‘F,’” she said.
She continued: “What do you mean, ‘What happened?’ Look at my dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress. That’s what happened. I don’t actually . . . I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs.”
