CNN — Jennifer Lawrence had some weird things going on with her Christian Dior Couture gown when she accepted an award at Sunday's SAG ceremony, but it wasn't a wardrobe malfunction.
Many presumed that to be the case, thanks to the very clear separation of fabric that occurred when Lawrence walked up to the stage to accept the honor for best female actor in a leading role.
The dress seemed to cleanly split into two, exposing a sheer fabric holding the two pieces of navy blue fabric together, but like an accordion the gown soon righted itself.
Now Christian Dior Couture has issued a statement confirming that what viewers saw wasn't a rip, or even a malfunction.
"The dress is made with different levels of tulle and satin and that is what the viewers saw when Jennifer lifted her dress slightly," the fashion house said in a statement to USA Today. "It was not ripped and there was no malfunction ... it was the design of the gown."
