Oscars - Gracefully does it Jennifer!!!

Winning an Oscar for Best Actress is beyond doubt the biggest moment of any star's career.
But Jennifer Lawrence distracted somewhat from the honour by tripping up the stairs as she headed onto the stage to accept her Academy Award. 

The 22-year-old star, who won for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, was seen momentarily hanging her head in her hands after her voluminous strapless Dior Haute Couture gown caused the mishap on the steps.

Both Jennifer's Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper and her X-Men: First Class co-star Hugh Jackman were seen rushing to the actress' rescue, but Jennifer was quick to rectify the situation, declining any help as she picked herself up and continued to accept the award.
As she got back onto her feet, the star-studded audience gave the actress a standing ovation - much to the actress' embarrassment. 
Despite her initial blushes, Jennifer quickly laughed off the incident and began her stream of thank yous.

'Thank you so much,' she told them. 'This is nuts. You guys are only standing up because I fell and you feel bad. That was embarrassing.'
Jennifer also thanked her co-stars, crew and team for their support before wishing her fellow nominee, Amour star Emmanuelle Riva a happy 86th birthday. 
Perhaps Jennifer's quick recovery is due to the fact that she's been in a very similar situation before.

At the Screen Actor's Guild Awards earlier this year, Jennifer's midnight blue Dior gown appeared to fall apart as she climbed the stairs. 
Then Dior explained that the dress was made in layers, with Jennifer simply hitching up the top layer to reveal her legs.
