Fugger: Jennifer Lawrence

Carefully Played: Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior


Remember when Kristen Stewart returned to the red carpet post-Rupert Saunders with a dress that screamed, “I CARE NOTHING FOR YOUR JUDGMENTS”? There is a part of me that wishes Jennifer Lawrence had come out swinging after the nude-photo incident, and worn something that flipped the bird to both the gross perpetrators of that crime AND the people who acted like the real crime was her being naked (I mean, yeah, not taking nude photos is probably the most prudent choice for a celebrity, but nobody else has a right to them, and people need to leave others’ private stuff the hell alone).

Having said that:

I think this is pretty good — it’s got a sliver of sex appeal, but it’s also streamlined and chic, and avoids being stodgy. Dior has done SO MUCH WORSE by her that I’m relieved to see they all got this one right. Even the shoes work. Could they be saucier? Yes. But as black pumps go, those are beautifully shaped, and are such a welcome break from the whole platform/round toe/hoof aesthetic that I’m almost misty-eyed.

So, I’m torn. I would hate it if this staid outing is because anyone made J.Lawr think she needed to play it safe. But maybe she just FELT like playing it safe because she’s tired of everyone wailing about how the marriage between her and Dior is an unholy union of atrocious taste. And THEN I started wondering if she’s paranoid that Gwyneth Paltrow and the GOOP Army is out to get her for hooking up with Chris Martin — I read a Blind Item the other day that implied she’s getting detailed instructions from Gwyneth all about how to handle their children, right down to how much and what kinds of food they are allowed to eat – and thus might be going out of her way to look super respectable for THAT. And THEN THEN I got mad at GOOP for that even though I’m partially inventing it, because it has The Ring of Truth, and that made me come back around to wishing she were wearing something that tried to out-Paltrow La Paltrow. And then my tiny brain lost half its cells to an explosion and now I sort of wish she were in a sparkly minidress like the way it looked in the ORIGINAL Star Wars when the first Death Star blew to smithereens.

All of which is to say that I both like this and wish she were in something fresher. I can feel both those things at the same time, right?

RIGHT?

Fugs and Fabs: The Dior Afterparty


We saw Emma Watson’s effort from this outing, but here are the rest of the Dior girls. Tonight, the role of Charlize Theron will be played by Karlie Kloss (I feel like anyone would be happy to be played by Karlie Kloss, right?).

Cannes Fugs and a Fine: Jennifer Lawrence in Three Diors


Dior often makes a big showing in Cannes. If J.Lawr HADN’T shown up cloaked in it, we’d be in the throes of a scandale.

Fugs and Fabs: X-Men, Days of Future Past Premiere, The Women


Apparently, Jennifer Lawrence almost fell over at this event, too. I am worried that she’s not very good at being upright, you guys. I mean, I totally jacked up my foot last summer by simply stepping off a curb, so I FEEL her, but still.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party Fug or Fab: Jennifer Lawrence In Tom Ford


The bad news is, Jennifer did re-up that Dior contract for something like three more years, so we’re going to be sweating that relationship for a long time to come. The good news is, apparently it’s at least partially an open marriage.

Oscars Fug or Fab: Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior


Jessica liked this (or at least more than I did); I did not. A RIFT IN THE HOUSE OF FUG. (Not really. She’s just less hollow inside than I am.) It’s neither the worst nor the best of Jennifer’s awards Diors this season, and in fact might be an exact banal average between the two. Michelle Williams wore a similar but more ornate Louis Vuitton a few years ago, which I had mixed feelings about as well, actually. But I like that one better; if you’re going to do a peplum, DO it. In other words, only dice your red peplum on a cutting board.

Where do you fall (no pun intended)(just kidding, it totally was):
