Fugger: Jennifer Lawrence
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.
Jennifer Lawrence is busy: First Catching Fire premiered, then American Hustle, then it was awards season, and then she had to juggle shooting Mockingjay with the next X-Men movie, and now it’s the Oscars. I hope on March 3, she books herself into a spa for a week and flushes her mobile.
In honor of all that, we decided to accept the opportunity to do a Hunger Games: Catching Fire giveaway in advance of its March 7 release date in all the applicable formats (Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital HD, VOD, PPV, OMG, BSB, TTYL, and of course YOLO). The slideshow of Jennifer’s various hairdos over the years is just for fun, so we can have important discussions about which color and style she should adopt next. These are the issues of today, and they cannot be overlooked.
Here is the giveaway portion:
The rules: Delightfully limited. Anyone who comments on this entry and lives in the U.S. or Canada will be eligible (we’ll pick the winners at random; we don’t have time to judge a contest because of the Oscars THE OSCARS BY GOD THE OSCARS). So talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you a topic: Jennifer Lawrence’s hair looked the best in slide 2. DISCUSS. And if you should decide to do it in the form of sassy poetry, it will not increase your chances of winning, but it WILL create delight throughout the land. Make sure you comment with a valid e-mail address, please. I promise we will not use it for anything EXCEPT to notify you that you have won fun stuff.
The prize: One Grand Prize winner gets a CoverGirl beauty bag that includes Flamed Up Curl Mascara and the nine Capitol Collection nail polishes (they are apparently sparkly, which makes sense given what we know of makeup trends in the Capitol), plus a Hunger Games: Catching Fire Blu-ray Combo Pack; and two runners-up will each get a Hunger Games: Catching Fire DVD. (The movie comes out in those formats — and Pay-Per-View, Digital HD, VOD, OMG, BSB, TTYL, and your other favorite acronyms — next Friday, so if you don’t win, don’t despair.) May the odds, as they say, be ever in your favor.
The restrictions: As I noted, sadly, this is only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (sorry, Fug Internationals; we don’t make ALL the rules). The contest closes on Monday, March 3, at noon Pacific time.
The sign-off: THE OSCARS ARE ON SUNDAY. Where did the time go?

I think this is the best Dior’s done by her in… who even knows how long:
I don’t think SHE agrees, since she spent the entire red carpet interview talking about her “armpit vaginas” — which, for the record, your pits look totally normal, Jennifer — leading me to think she was not wild about how this thing fit. It does look slightly tight in this photo, and it was probably damn uncomfortable, but she looked fabulous in this overall and my God, J Law, use the power of positive reinforcement with Dior whenever they put you in anything half-way decent! NOW is not the time to be fretful! That was LAST WEEK.
This isn’t the worst Dior of the lot, by any means, but that doesn’t mean I have to love it.
It just looks a bit like she’s wearing a carpet that only got part-way untied and unrolled. I want to snip out the second black piece and then see what we’ve got — something simple, sure, but at least it would be more flattering. The hair still isn’t flattering to her face shape, either, and I think her makeup may have been TOO heavy-handed, but let’s stay on topic: When talking to Seacrest, Jennifer noted that she was wearing Dior, with a quick quip about what a huge shocker that would be to everyone. Methinks she’s getting bored of it and when they uncage this beast — whenever the hell that happens (she was announced as the Miss Dior face in October 2012) — I think we’re in for a serious fashion binge, like going off gluten for a week and then being put in a room full of delicious, delicious sandwiches. She will CONSUME IT ALL, side effects be damned.

There are inside photos of a bunch of other people, too, but let’s just focus on the front of the book, since that’s what is supposed to make me want to peek inside. Which I would, if I liked horror movies.
