Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Jennifer Lawrence In Tom Ford

VF Tom Ford Jennifer Lawren Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Jennifer Lawrence In Tom Ford %tag

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A mirrored embellished Tom Ford mini dress with sheer panelling to the side and long sleeves from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with strappy black heels

Verdict: I liked Jennifer Lawrence’s strapless red Christian Dior Couture gown that she wore to the main event, the peplum was nice, but I think I am done with her Dior overload, so it was refreshing to see that the actress embraced her sexy side in this shimmering Tom Ford mini dress for the after party.

There is a lot about this look that I love – from the heavily embellished shattered mirror effect to the fact that she is actually showing off her amazing pins to the sexy sheer panel down the sides. At the Oscars she looked elegant and at the Vanity Fair party she looks youthful and it was nice to see.

I also think I prefer this heavy kohl party eye make-up on her, it really works with her edgy pixie cut and is perfection with this sexy mini.

Are you pleased that Jennifer Lawrence changed it up for the after party?

Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Jennifer Lawrence In Dior

Oscars dior Jennifer lawrence Oscars 2014: Best Dressed   Jennifer Lawrence In Dior %tag

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A strapless red wool crepe Dior Haute Couture dress, teamed with Neil Lane jewellery, black Brian Atwood shoes, and a Ferragamo clutch

Verdict: Jennifer Lawrence and her blonde pixie cut really is growing on me especially paired with this gorgeous red couture gown. No surprise that the actress wore Dior but I can’t have been the only one hoping for a miracle – no matter how gorgeous this statuesque dress is.

What I love most about this look, other than the peplum detailing, has to be the sparkling Neil Lane diamonds that she is wearing, which were reportedly worth $3 million. The necklace alone was a staggering $2 million due to its 100 carats of diamonds. What are your thoughts on the repeated necklace down the back? She did this last year to great effect but this year I’m not too sure.

One thing is for sure her hair and make-up was flawless and she was once again on great form on the red carpet and during the ceremony. Oh and if you missed her clumsy red carpet moment – see below – this is just another reason I want her to be my BFF. Plus all the haters out there saying she did it for attention – really – come off it.

Were you a fan of Jennifer’s Oscar gown?

SAG Awards: Trend – Various Shades Of Blue

463563745 SAG Awards: Trend   Various Shades Of Blue %tag

There is always something special about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, maybe it is the fact that they are all judging one another, or that the red carpet has a relaxed nature while still being uber glamorous, or that it comes so soon after the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards that I am so giddy about the award season. Whatever it is, it never seems to disappoint.

Last year it was all about Nina Dobrev’s gorgeous Elie Saab and Jennifer Garner sparkling in Oscar de la Renta, and this year it seems that all my best dressed wore hues of blue. From the gorgeous Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi to Jennifer Lawrence’s shimmering Dior Couture gown.

I was just going to do my best three looks but I have to be honest I couldn’t decide who to cut – so it is now my top 4 beauties from the SAG Awards red carpet!!!

In at number one has to be American Hustle’s Amy Adams in this Antonio Berardi gown, not only is this shade of blue divine, but the architectural neckline and shoulder cut-out detail really marries sexy and elegance all at the same time, and the fit is impeccable on her. Amy really is having a great award season.

My second best is newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, this girl continues to impress me every time she steps out onto the red carpet and this custom Gucci gown is beautiful. It isn’t often that you see turquoise on the red carpet, but this hue really shined on her, and it was made even better with those gorgeous floral embroidered straps. Another breathtaking look – I think Lupita is easily my favourite red carpet star of the moment.

Third place was a tough decision between the two Jennifer’s – from the statuesque Jennifer Garner in a custom Max Mara gown and Jennifer Lawrence in a shimmering Dior Couture number. Both are beautiful, both so different. I think the constellation of multicoloured sequins on J-Law’s gown just pips Garner as it really did shimmer on TV, but I do love the simplicity of Garner’s – that is a great silhouette on her.

W Magazine: Jennifer vs Oprah vs Cate

W jennifer lawrence W Magazine: Jennifer vs Oprah vs Cate %tag

Reason number 387 on why I love Jennifer Lawrence – she isn’t afraid to rock her curves on a cover of a magazine. The Oscar-winning actress, and potential contender this year for the best supporting actress gong, looks incredible wearing a 50′s style floral high-waisted Dolce & Gabbana bikini on one of the six special covers for W magazine’s Movie issue.

It isn’t often that you get to compare Jennifer against Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, who is one of my favourite red carpet stars, as well as Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams, and Lupita Nyong’o – all chosen for their incredible movie performances over the last year snapped by photography legend Juergen Teller. 

Inside the magazine, Jennifer opens up about her big trip-up at last year’s Oscars (reason 254 for loving her):

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

As well as loving Jennifer’s cover – Cate is stunning, I love her red lippy, I have to say that Lupita in that metallic Dior dress has to be my favourite. I just love that W magazine went with an up-and-coming actress who is really standing her own against the more established names. I think Lupita will be the one to watch this award season, not only will she pick up a lot of awards but her red carpet style is going to be amazing.

Which W magazine cover are you loving? Also are you still loving Jennifer Lawrence as much as me?

Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games Tour

Hunger Games JL Dior Rome Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrences Hunger Games Tour %tag

Rome Premiere

It was kind of a given that for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour that Jennifer Lawrence, who is the face of Miss Dior, would wear pieces from the French fashion house – but was anyone really expecting it to be every single premiere that she attended? From London to Berlin to Madrid to Rome to Paris to Los Angeles and finally to New York – each step of the tour a new Dior look to go with her pixie cut.

On first reflection I was disappointed, not one was customised, some even looked ill-fitted, and not one really wowed me as the star of the film should, to be honest I felt that Elizabeth Banks really took the fashion stakes away from the leading lady.

Then I decided to look at the looks together and I have to give it to Jennifer and her styling team that each look is different – we have sheer gowns, embroidered dresses, statement draping, and even outerwear glammed up for the red carpet.

Hunger Games JL Dior LA Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrences Hunger Games Tour %tag

Los Angeles Premiere

My favourite is between the Los Angeles Dior Couture gown, where Jennifer wore a sheer grey knitted dress over a body showing off her great pins, the vanilla silk Dior Haute Couture dress that she wore to the Rome premiere, I just love the asymmetrical neckline, and the navy blue silk strapless dress in Madrid from the Dior Resort 2014 collection. I think what helps each of these looks is how fabulous her pixie cut looks – especially in Madrid where it reminded me of Cameron Diaz‘s hair in  ’There’s Something About Mary’.

There were a few looks that I didn’t like, London mainly, that multicoloured-embroidered white silk dress was just unflattering and quite ageing on her, I actually preferred it when she put on the red coat. I also thought the Berlin Dior Haute Couture cotton and pale blue embroidered guipure coat was just boring compared to Elizabeth Bank’s shimmering Elie Saab, and New York was just a little underwhelming.

I understand that when an actress signs up as a face that she has to show a little loyalty, but I think this was a little over the top. I could understand if each look was designed specially for her, but they weren’t, granted she might have loved each and every look – but did anyone else just think that she had been paid to wear Dior for the premieres? Maybe I am being a little cynical, I am just gutted that she didn’t wear other designers, I just wanted so more from her this promo tour.

Barbie Loving: The Hunger Games Catching Fire Dolls – Including Katniss & Effie

Barbie hunger games 2 Barbie Loving: The Hunger Games Catching Fire Dolls   Including Katniss & Effie %tag

It isn’t long now until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits cinemas, I have even started rereading the trilogy to prepare, and Barbie has done a followed up to the amazing Katniss doll from the first film, with the leading lady being joined by Peeta, Effie and Finnick wearing costumes from Catching Fire.

Of course I’m excited to be adding another Katniss doll, the first one sits pride and place in my office next to Bella from Twilight, but as they didn’t go for one of Jennifer Lawrence‘s characters more flamboyant looks from the film – like her wedding dress - the one I most want to add to my collection is Effie Trinket.

Barbie hunger games 3 Barbie Loving: The Hunger Games Catching Fire Dolls   Including Katniss & Effie %tag

As you would expect Effie is one striking Barbie doll, wearing a metallic blue dress accented with black feather sleeves and gold detailing around the collar and waist – it is a complete replica of one of her extravagant Capitol fashions worn in the film. I love that the bold design also captures her signature hair style, striking make-up and finishes off the look with OTT shoes and glitzy tights. For $24.95 she is a real bargain.Barbie hunger games effie Barbie Loving: The Hunger Games Catching Fire Dolls   Including Katniss & Effie %tag Barbie hunger games effie  Barbie Loving: The Hunger Games Catching Fire Dolls   Including Katniss & Effie %tagBarbie hunger games katniss Barbie Loving: The Hunger Games Catching Fire Dolls   Including Katniss & Effie %tag

The Catching Fire Katniss doll is great, but just doesn’t have the wow factor of Effie as it is too similar to the first doll. Once again she is carrying her bow and wearing her hair in a side-braid, the only difference is the leather jacket has been replaced with her fitted black bodysuit with knee and elbow pads that she enters the arena of the Quarter Quell in.

As well as the two favourite female characters, Barbie has also moulded Peeta and Finnick into dolls, with both wearing their Tributes outfits for the 75th Annual Hunger Games. Peeta’s of course matches Katniss in black, while Finnick carries his signature trident.

What do you think of the new The Hunger Games dolls? Are you happy that they included Effie this time?

Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence Is A Vision For Harper’s Bazaar

harpers bazaar nov jennifer Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence Is A Vision For Harpers Bazaar %tag

 

 

 

With the second Hunger Games film hitting cinema screens in less than two months, I’m not surprised to see Jennifer Lawrence on the November issue of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar, and I think we will be seeing a lot more of the Oscar-winning actress before the year is out.

Not that I am complaining as this is another stunning cover of Jennifer, I actually think I prefer it to her recent US Vogue cover. Shot by Ben Hassett, this is the subscriber cover and I adore everything about it – the Dior Couture dress, the OTT rings, and the dramatic red lippy – but why does it look a little over airbrushed, she seriously didn’t need it, and what is she actually leaning her arm on???

I am being uber-picky, this is a gorgeous cover and I even love the phrase that Jennifer is a “reckless beauty” – I can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial and the newsstand cover.

Do you like Jennifer Lawrence’s latest cover?
