Jennifer Lawrence's Golden Globes dress inspires new social media trend

Yesterday evening, Sunday, January 12, was the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards; an event that always seems to get people talking on social media. And, while there were certainly some interesting talking points from last night's show; like Seth Rogen's brutally honest confession, and Tina Fey's dig on George Clooney, nothing got social media abuzz like Jennifer Lawrence's Christian Dior dress.

The dress, a white frock with two black belts around the middle, seemed so simple to Twitter users that they took to the social medium to show off their unique versions of the outfit. They even gave it a name: #Lawrencing; which trended on Twitter all night last night.

Some of the more unique takes on the dress included Arrow star, Colton Haynes, creating a mockup with what appears to be a bed sheet and two pieces of electrical tape. Some even offered up photos of their pets dressed in pillow cases, dish rags, and black tape, as well.

In addition to the dress, Lawrence also made headlines last night by photobombing Taylor Swift, walking up behind the country star while she was being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest and flashing her teeth like some sort of zombie on the red carpet.

Despite the funny takes on the Dior design by Twitter users, fashion critics hailed the simplicity of the dress and deemed it a "winner" last night.
