Lights on, belts off! Jennifer Lawrence had a funny minor wardrobe malfunction on Monday night in New York City. The 33-year-old Oscar winner presented at the lighting ceremony for the new Saks Fifth Avenue holiday window display in midtown. This year’s exhibit is titled Dior’s Carousel of Dreams, and the longtime Christian Dior spokeswoman was the one to announce the unveiling.
But when Lawrence got up to the microphone, her belt, which had been tied across the front of her chic black peacoat, popped off. The Hunger Games alum gasped and covered her mouth in shock, attempting to recover without cracking up as she continued with the presentation.

Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) caught the moment on film with people in the comments laughing with Lawrence, while many others commenting on the loud horns of the NYC taxis.
“NYC cab drivers showing about as much patience as her belt 😂,” one commenter wrote.
Lawrence is known for her candid moments, including tripping up the stairs on her way to accept her 2013 Oscar.
