Jennifer Lawrence just stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and her look is so fantastic she deserves a standing ovation even before the movie starts playing.
Lawrence is wearing Christian Dior, of course. This crop top and A-line skirt is from the house’s Spring 2014 Couture collection, and it’s one of the best looks Dior has ever done for her. It’s youthful, stylish, fits her perfectly, and makes her look like she is a million feet tall. I even like the pointy-toed metallic pumps. I’ve been railing against the pointy-toed metallic pump trend for months, but here they work perfectly.
This look makes me optimistic for more excellence from Lawrence and Dior. When Dior pays you $20 million dollars to wear their clothes on the red carpet, you wear whatever the hell they tell you to. But in general their collaboration has left Lawrence looking a bit too mature and safe. She’s a 23-year-old movie star, there’s no reason to dress her up like Princess Di.
And her hair and makeup look absolutely fantastic. Since she started growing her awkward pixie cut into a cute, choppy bob, she’s looked younger and more stylish every time we’ve seen her. This loose, wavy style is perfect on her, and the makeup is phenomenal. The natural lip color is extremely flattering, and Lawrence’s skin is glowing as though she just swallowed 1,000 light bulbs. Or maybe a shot. (Knowing Jennifer Lawrence, she might well have just done a shot. Well that’s one way to get a pretty glow.)
