Jennifer Lawrence saves herself from a wardrobe malfunction by hiking up her stunning Dior gown.

Jennifer Lawrence picked her stunning red Dior gown literally a half hour before she threw it on and appeared at the Academy Awards tonight (Mar. 2). But she fought it all night long.

Lawrence, 23, was spotted hiking up her strapless dress on the red carpet more than once to avoid a possible wardrobe malfunction.

The “American Hustle” actress called the dress her “little baby.”

She said she was determined to keep her feet this time, should she get the call to climb the steps to the stage to accept the Best Supporting Actress award.

Last year, she tripped going up the stairs to accept the Best Actress award for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook,” with Bradley Cooper.

But it was not to be.

The Best Supporting Actress award this year went to Lupita Nyong’o for her role as Patsey in “12 Years a Slave.”

Still Lawrence took a dive as she arrived at the Hollywood & Highland Center for the show.

She tripped on a safety cone and laughed uproariously at herself.
