Fugger: Jennifer Lawrence

Well Played? Jennifer Lawrence in Dior at the Mockingjay Premiere

I feel like FINALLY someone over there is like, “okay FINE. We WON’T make you wear all that LUNATIC stuff anymore because you can’t carry if off and it’s making us both look bad. Here. This is pretty, in a powerfully retro way. TRY IT.”

Everyone Looks Hotter In Sunglasses, part eleventy-thousand:

Jennifer Lawrence at Letterman

They are by Oliver Peoples, and if you have $400 or so lying around, they can be yours. Get to steppin’. Which Jennifer is doing here, in what was a very confusing sequence of events for me. She arrived at Letterman wearing this really foxy red tank dress, in shoes that are sexier than the ones she wore the other day and MILES AND MILES better-fitted to her foot. Even with how it’s meant to look like her chest is straining the fabric and giving us a peek, I think it’s fabulous on her, and that we should all be blessed to look like this while we’re getting ourselves around town.

And THEN she changed into this outfit for Letterman: A black dress and a white coat and gold shoes. So I don’t know where this perfectly foxy ensemble went, but it didn’t end up on-stage, and it didn’t LEAVE on her body either:

great shoes ahoy


Well Played, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

I don’t know if I’ve ever said this, but I love her in this Dior.

Fugs and Fabs of the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards: Part One

This dress on Jennifer is Oscar de la Renta, and given that she does usually have to sail on the S.S. Dior, I choose to believe it was a last-second tribute. Sniffle.

There were pictures of her smiling, and she seemed very cheery at the event, but this was the best view — at least at the time of this writing — of her whole outfit. And so I envision her standing there, posing, dreading the inevitable raised eyebrows and questions about her new relationship. “I thought you’d be wearing yellow,” someone might say. Or, “What time is it? Has anyone checked the clocks?” Or, “Holy crap you’re dating Chris Martin what is THAT like does he burn macrobiotic cookbooks every night and post anti-health food comments on websites all day TELL ME EVERYTHING.”

And, at the end, a special episode of We Need To Talk About Renee.

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?

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.
