Jennifer Lawrence falls at the Oscars for the second year in a row

Jennifer Lawrence falls at the Oscars for the second year in a row

Jennifer Lawrence’s famous stumble to the podium was one of the most memorable moments from last year’s Oscars.

This year, the accident-prone actress took another spill as she was exiting her limousine.

Waving to fans on the red carpet, the American Hustle beauty tripped on her strapless red Dior gown as she made her way to the Dolby Theatre, knocking over a traffic cone in the process.


Her towering Brian Atwood black sandals presumably didn’t make it easy for the star to keep her balance.

Jennifer good-naturedly laughed off the incident, throwing her head back and dissolving into fits of giggles. She was helped to her feet by her date Nicholas Hoult, and a pair of policemen.

The 22-year-old was also wearing Dior last year when she tripped up while climbing the stairs to collect her Best Actress trophy for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.

Once she’d regained her composure and made it onto the podium, Jennifer received a standing ovation from the crowd.

“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."”

This year the blonde star didn’t take home the gold – she lost out in the best supporting actress category to 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyongo.

Jennifer still sparkled on the night though, thanks to her accessories. She chose a bling-tastic $2million Neil Lane necklace, worn backwards for effect. The precious piece was made up of carved rock crystal and 100 carats of diamonds

Jennifer also wore 10-carat diamond stud earrings and a platinum and diamond ring set worth $1million.
