Despite what it looked like when she walked on stage to accept her SAG Award Sunday evening, Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence did NOT rip her dress, Dior says.

The actress, who was in recovery mode after a brutal bout with pneumonia, looked as if she was wearing a one piece gown on the red carpet earlier that evening. However, Lawrence's outfit was a two piece dress: The skirt portion lifted as she walked up the stairs, revealing a sheer panel underneath. It may have appeared that she had ripped Raf Simons' beautiful creation - which would have had throngs of fashion folk (including us) screaming oh mon dieu on behalf of the French fashion house, but any material Dior Haute Couture uses is practically indestructible. And exorbitantly expensive.

Glad we could clarify that for the masses. For our list of best-dressed stars at the 2013 SAG Awards, click here.
