I thought Jennifer Lawrence's Dior Haute Couture gown looked too bridal and overwhelmed her with mounds of fabric that tripped her up when she walked up the stairs to accept her Best Actress statue. But other panelists thought she looked stunning in the strapless pale pink and white gown with elaborate full skirt and body-hugging top, with a small necklace that cascaded down her back. And I have to admit that, once onstage, Lawrence looked like a princess.
