Jennifer Lawrence blames dress for Oscars fall: 'I just stepped on the fabric'

This has been a successful awards season for Jennifer Lawrence culminating in her Best Actress Oscars win, but it hasn't been without its share of fashion pitfalls. First there was her alleged torn Christian Dior Couture dress at the SAG Awards, and then she tripped and fell on her way to accepting her Academy Award.

As one might have guessed, it was her Dior Haute Couture dress that was her downfall -- literally -- this time too. It had what she called a "5-foot circumference" around her, and she confirmed to reporters in the press room following her win that the very wide gown was to blame for her spill.

"What do you mean, 'What happened?' Look at my dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress. That's what happened," Lawrence told reporters, laughing. "I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs."

She wasn't having very G-rated thoughts when the incident happened, either. "What went through my mind when I fell down? A bad word that I can't say that starts with 'F,'" Lawrence quipped.
