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?
