Dressed in a stunning off-white strapless Dior Haute Couture gown, the accident happened as Jennifer rushed to the stage still shocked by her win.
A smiling Hugh Jackman rushed to help Jennifer, holding out his hand to escort her safely to the podium.
Despite her initial embarrassment the 22-year-old quickly laughed off the incident and began her stream of thank yous.
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 her 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.
