Peoples Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Jennifer Lawrence


fug-or-fab

“Wow, look at Liam. His mouth is closed. His mouth is never closed. I watched the whole of The Last Song right before we shot Hunger Games and he didn’t close his mouth. I just assumed his nose didn’t work. How is he breathing? Maybe it DOES work. Does his suit fit? Is the shirt kind of sloppy? Man, he’s tall. Is that why they didn’t have Josh Hutcherson come out with us? Because he’s not as tall? Are people going to hate this movie because Josh Hutcherson isn’t that tall? And… what am I wearing? No, really, that is a legit question.”

“I thought this was pretty. It might be pretty. But it also looks like a harp made of paisley. Or really fancy property gate, maybe on one of those fictional mansions in the fictional Panem capital. Oh, God, I’m dressed like a BUILDING. A building with NIPPLE SWIRLS.  Why didn’t I notice how SPECIFIC the swirl placement is? And is my shoe a half-size too big? HELLO? AM I TALKING TO MYSELF HERE? IS ANYONE GOING TO ANSWER ME.”

    I forgive her. Only because I’m super excited about the Hunger Games movies.

    Um, I can’t figure out what I think here. I kind of love the color of the weird blue swirls. And the dress itself is cute classic A-line that fits her very well. But… the mesh. And the swirls. I don’t know. Like the simple ponytail though and the makeup is good. I think maybe she looks pretty in spite of the dress? I’m so confused!

    I quite like the dress, but I hate the mesh. The top picture is actually making me a bit uncomfortable. But she looks great and I love her

    Was she there as Jennifer or Katniss?

      From the neck up she was there as Emily Blunt…

        Yes! Right? She’s normally SO beautiful, what’s with the squint and the lacklustre hair? She has GREAT hair. Also those shoes…lord.

      She was there as the District 4 tribute, apparently.

        Niiiice.

        The colour’s great on her and I don’t even mind the swirls, but the netting, oof. And honestly, I wish she’d stick to simple-ish dresses and let her hair and face do the talking – I know she’s from Kentucky but she’s got such a California beach babe vibe about her and she should work it while she’s young enough for it not to be tacky. That gorgeous blue with some good jewels and loose hair? She’d be stunning.

    The fabric looks…stiff and uncomfortable. Like some project runway oddball design challenge to make a dress out of vinyl or something…

    • emma

      I thought the same thing. Project Runway design challenge. The mesh looks so stiff, large and harsh, and the edges of the swirls are so stiff and sharp with unfinished edges. I’d like this if it were softer and looked like it wouldn’t scrape anyone who came near it. Smaller mesh, softer seams, and more… bendy.

    Her shoe might be a half-size too big, but the dress is at least a size too small, and is crushing her bodice area something terrible. I salute the design of the dress (particularly the clever arrangement of nude lining underneath) and the colour, but don’t love the unfinished mesh on the hem edges, which make this look like a really fancy produce bag.

      I’m with you, Katharine. The girls need some breathing room. I didn’t notice the unfinished mesh edge until reading your comment, but I agree on that, too. Fix those two things, and I’d love this dress.

    I know I shouldn’t like it. But I do.

    I feel so ashamed.

    She looks like Mystique, if Mystique got stuck halfway through a transformation.

    I like the idea of the blue swirls, but the execution with the mesh is full of no.

    I would LOVE this if only I weren’t terrified and confused by the varying levels of sheerness. It kills the overall effect, which ought to be, “Oh, what a lovely gown on a lovely woman,” and instead is, “What the hell is going on with that dress OMG IS THAT A SHADOW OR HER LADY PARTS?” Easily fixed, though — just replace that produce-bag netting with the same fabric as the rest of the dress, perhaps in a slightly different shade of blue.

  11. Josephine

    Er…I like the idea of this, but in practice it’s a craft project. Jewel tone, stiff material, unsubtle netting that doesn’t look quite intentional enough, and swirl shapes that could have been clipped out of a book of prefab decorator French curves. It should be outre and awesome, and instead it looks like a piece of over-serious scrapbooking background.

    I still don’t understand how Liam is playing Gale and not Peeta.

    I really want to like her dress but even before I read it I thought “whoa that is curling around her boobs”

      THIS.

      And I *am* the person who’s going to hate the movie because Josh Hutcherson isn’t that tall. IT IS A TRAVESTY.

      Agreed. I hope that cropped/too small suit coat was just an accident and not some sort of misguided fashion statement. Makes his butt look big.

    I love the blue swirls. I wish they had made the mesh parts either solid white or solid black fabric. Then I would be 100% sold, and probably on the way to the store to pick one up for myself.

    I kept staring at her last night thinking, “Do I like this? I think so?” Even now I go back and forth. She looks lovely though which is why I think I’m giving the dress a pass.

    I thought this might be Stella McCartney, but it’s actually Viktor & Rolf (I should have known from the respectable length that it wasn’t the former). I really like it now that I know it’s lined (and lined well, so that it doesn’t look lined). She also just looks really great in it. Those shoes are not right, though. The cutout detail on the shoe doesn’t work, and I would prefer a peep-toe heel in something like teal or another cool jewel tone.

    I feel like if the pattern had been different, and had more strategically covered areas, then it would have looked more whimsical instead of kind of odd.

    This looks like something a tribute from District 4 would wear, not someone from District 12! CANNOT WAIT for March.

    I love the colour of this dress so much I’m willing to overlook the fact that she is wearing swirls.

    • Alison

      Yeah. My first thought was “Katniss, this is clearly a District 4 dress. Go talk to Cinna and sort yourself out.”

    • Kyasarin

      Hee! I had the same thought.

    I kind of adore Viktor & Rolf & it’s awesome to see them get some relatively high profile attention. I’m surprised at her choice, though. I mean, she’s so girl-next-door that I did a double take at her face, but it’s really her. Maybe she has hidden edges…

    The nipple swirls don’t get to me as much as the crotch swirl does. Especially in the first photo where she’s at kind of angle. (And may I add that her face seems so defiant in each of these photos like: “yeah, I’m naked under this dress. I’m an adult even though I play teenagers in all my movies.”)

    The mesh tank part is making me think of Jared Leto, and this is terribly unfortunate. The dress reminds me of a high school dance team number. And Ian? Who is tailoring your suit? You might reconsider this relationship.

    I like it even though it looks like two Loch Ness monsters fighting- on the top- then becoming friends- below. Maybe why I like it.

    I like the idea, but the dress looks unfinished. I feel like they meant to put some kind of lining underneath the mesh and just ran out of time. I know they didn’t, but this is a lie I tell myself to feel better about how little Jennifer Lawrence’s people care about what they put on her.

    her feet look blue in the first picture, which seemed like entirely too Lady Gaga. I see now that they aren’t, but it doesn’t make me like the outfit any better

    Didn’t Jessica Chastain wear this in a peachy color a while ago?

    The dress is wearing her. There’s no way she can’t know that the thing makes her look naked and that’s all people are going to see, talk about, or remember. The effect should be “Wow! Look at Jennifer!” Instead, it’s “Wow! Look at Jennifer’s….. OMFG, that thing is lined, right? ”

    The boy seems to have mixed up his wardrobe with that of the unseen shorter co-star.

    She looks FIERCE! Props for choosing something interesting, and that color is great on her. Yay for Katniss!!

    I like the color. There’s something too much about the stitching around the swirls that’s kinda raggedy and sloppy looking. It needs to be more delicate. Also, it’s kinda ice dancey.

    Call me crazy, but I kinda like her dress…though it could have used a different lining, the color is great!

    This hair and makeup and dress are all bad. So severe. She doesn’t look comfortable or herself. I believe these things are related. I don’t hate the shoes though.

    Are we sure she’s not playing Chun-Li in an update of Street Fighter? That being said, I don’t hate this.

    It looks like the cocktail dress version of Katniss Everdeen’s second arena outfit. #nerdalert

      OMG exactly what I thought. My mum and I had fangirl moments when we saw it (yes we are 55 and 25 respectively but we can fangirl with the best of them)
      It may be the Katniss thing that has me loving it…

    I like this dress in motion, ala the first picture. In the second picture it looks like the dress is wearing her– too stiff and too tight and she looks uncomfortable in her pose. Of course… the more I stare at this dress the more I am finding reasons why I don’t like it– the mesh, it’s strangling her boobs, the mesh, nipple swirls… I think I need to leave now.

  35. Nina

    This was a huge misfire. Those swirls…really? You can see her squished in boobs and a shadow of her lady parts (thanks for the terminology, LG) and it’s so freaking stiff. No. Just no.

    I love the swirls but am not crazy about the netting around the hem. It looks stiff and scratchy. Beautiful blue, though.

    Finnick would definitely approve of this dress. Even though it’s a tad tight, it looks much better on her than the runway model.

    They are going to have to do something about future HG press appearances… If they put her in lower heels to not tower over Peeta, damn. I mean Josh, then Gale, um. I mean Liam will look like a giant. I had not considered this scenario… But I know the movie will be awesome!

    It just looks so stiff and awkward…and trying to be fun but not fun at all. Gosh. Apparently, I really hate this dress.

    I just straight up love this dress. It fits perfectly, great color, and it’s interesting.

    Nup. Don’t like it at all, although the blue is definitely better than the peach as worn by Jessica Chastain http://gofugyourself.com/fug-or-fab-or-unfug-jessica-chastain-12-2011
    I feel like the shoes don’t reall go with it either, she needs something with a bit more edge. Half a size smaller.

    HE looks good enough to eat.

    Total fail. Her boobs look smashed due to dress being a size too small and the shoes look at least a size too big! Don’t like the eye makeup either. Someone needs to teach her how to pose properly on the red carpet. Most pictures I’ve seen of her usually show her either posing too hard or looking extremely uncomfortable. I’ve seen her in interviews so I can’t blame her awkwardness on being shy. Also, where’s her smile? She’s playing the lead in the highly anticipated Hunger Games franchise!

    I think it’s weird, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing! I kind of like it, but at the same time I wish I could free her boosom from its octopus prision! The shoes are fine & she looks pretty!

    OMG I am sooo glad you guys put this on. As soon as she walked on stage I thought ” I can’t wait to get on GFY and see what they have to say. I Say that I HATE it. Especially once I noticed the swirls place on her nip’s and her lady bits. I just kept waiting for her to move and get a shot of district 13.

    Looks like he slept in his suit and white shirt. Can he look better or is this it?
