GMA: Jennifer Lawrence Wardrobe Malfunction?
Remember how Jennifer Lawrence‘s dress at the SAG Awards supposedly malfunctioned, but it turned out that what looked like a malfunction was actually part of the design? Marion Cotillard could compare notes with Jennifer Lawrence, because her dress at the BAFTA Awards is also being said to have malfunctioned when it didn’t.
The bright yellow dress Marion Cotillard wore from Dior looked like it had ripped on her leg, but it turned out that it was a see-through panel, intended to be part of the dress from the beginning. Good Morning America showed a picture of a model on the runway with the dress, with the same tear.
Sam Champion was still baffled by the wardrobe malfunctions. He asked if they could talk about it again tomorrow so he could understand what happened.
