What Do You Think Of Jennifer Lawrence’s Barbie Doll Look In W?

I love Jennifer Lawrence, mostly because of her First Wives Club jokes. But I’m a little thrown by her look in the new issue of W magazine. But then, I think the point is to be a little bit thrown by it. Here is the look, incidentally:

And here, for some reference, is a picture of Barbie:

W states:

Although she’s not remotely cuckoo, Lawrence, 22, is stubbornly, wonderfully true to herself, and that self is not constrained by Holly­wood’s usual rules of conformity. For instance, while she is a newly named face of Christian Dior, Lawrence loves to eat and is, as she bluntly puts it, “fat, by Hollywood’s standards.”

It continues to be insane – even cuckoo – to me that anyone in the entire world thinks that Jennifer Lawrence is fat, but, that aside, I guess her appointment as the face of Dior would explain why she is wearing the pink Dior dress in this photo. The Mikimoto pearls I think are just the spirit of Barbie taking over, though.

    I’m more interested in what she saw that scared her so.

    It was clearly interesting enough that everyone else had to look too.

    I think it was intended to be more of a 50s look- that’s a 50s hairstyle and that kind of dress with pearls was really popular back then. And if you look at the people around her, they’re dressed in very retro styles. Stop getting offended over nothing.
