According to E! Online, Lawrence told Ryan Seacrest the news while speaking about her red strapless dress.
She said: "This is Dior haute couture. I don't really know what haute means, but I had to say it."
When Seacrest attempted to help the Hunger Games star down from the podium while she was making an exit, she politely declined his help.
The 22-year-old added: "I don't want to shake your hand, I have the flu. Sorry!"
Lawrence was nominated for 'Best Actress' for her role in Silver Linings Playbook opposite Bradley Cooper.
