More haste, less speed

2013 has been an eventful year so far for actress Jennifer Lawrence … and we’re only two months in!

Hot on the heels of her recent calamity at the Screen Actors Guild Awards where she caught and ripped the bottom of her dress on a chair in her hurry to get up on stage to collect her award, she’s created headlines yet again by falling up the stairs on her way to collect her Best Actress award at last night’s Oscars!

She must surely be the most accident-prone actress in Hollywood!!!

Now I am sure she’s delighted with all these awards but I’m guessing she may also be mortified at these mishaps.  It’s one thing to fall over when few people are watching but it’s quite something else to do it in front of millions of TV viewers!

So Jennifer, if you’re reading this, I have a few words of advice.  Take your time, look where you’re going and definitely make sure you sack your stylist – a shorter dress would be far less hazardous for you love!!!

Why you should never be in a “tearing” hurry!

If you’re a high-profile movie star, there are few things more embarrassing than turning up at an event in the same dress as someone else and giving the paparazzi a field day and plenty of column inches.  However, this weekend, Jennifer Lawrence managed to create headlines with her dress in a different way with an unfortunate incident when standing up to receive her Best Female Actor in a Leading Role statue for her role in Silver Linings Playbook at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Jumping up from her chair and hugging the people around her, she failed to notice that someone had planted the leg of their chair on her navy Dior gown.  Keen to get on stage and accept her award, the actress attempted to run off, tearing her dress in the process.   Not so much a wardrobe malfunction as a wardrobe catastrophe!!!

SAG Awards

Naturally the cameras were also on the other nominees in this category, Marion Cotillard and Nicole Kidman, who both managed to create suitably shocked expressions, presumably while laughing hysterically on the inside and eternally grateful that it hadn’t happened to them!!!

Jennifer almost hadn’t attended the ceremony as she is thought to have been suffering from pneumonia and has missed various red carpet occasions in recent weeks.   You can bet that she woke up this morning wishing she’d stayed in bed a bit longer!!!
