Last year, when Jennifer Lawrence graced the red carpet in a stunning strapless Christian Dior gown for the 2013 Oscars, she had not only unknowingly won ‘Best Actress’ which she was receive later on that night, but she also quickly topped best dressed lists for her elegant and timeless look that was modern and minimal yet beautifully extravagant. Jennifer famously tumbled while making her way up the steps to accept her Oscar and now she has opened up on why she tripped up at such an important moment. The answer? It was all because she was thinking about “cakewalk” for a reason she will never know. Jennifer commented:
“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”
Luckily, Jennifer quickly bounced back from the fall to give her speech and take her very own golden statue home. Jennifer also continues to work as Dior’s face and she has won us all over with her charming down-to-earth personality. Rumors are already swirling that she may be in the running to take home her second Oscar for her part in ‘American Hustle’ and we’ll all be tuned in to the red carpet if she is making an appearance!
