JENNIFER LAWRENCE appeared to have ripped her dress in half as she was accepting an award at the SAG Awards on Sunday.

However, you’d be surprised to know that it wasn’t exactly a wardrobe malfunction because by the time that she finally got on stage to accept her Best Actress award for “Silver Linings Playbook,” Jennifer Lawrence‘s elegant blue Dior gown was exactly as it had looked when she arrived at the Screen Actors Guild Awards!

So how did that happen?

Apparently, her dress was a two-piece with the lower part of the skirt connected by a sheer lining. This explains why it looked like it tore (much to Marion Cotillard‘s surprise) when her dress was caught on the chair and as she was walking up the stage but snapped back into place seconds later.

Whew!
