Did Jennifer Lawrence get a Dior contract & is it angering the other Dior girls?

I haven’t been able to find any confirmation of this anywhere, so either A) Star Magazine got a genuine scoop of a late-breaking fashion/beauty contract for one of the most prestigious labels in the world or B) Star is just pulling stuff out of their ass in an attempt to start a girl-fight. I really don’t know which option to choose. For one, I think it’s perfectly possible that Jennifer Lawrence could be in talks, in negotiations, or finalizing a deal to represent Christian Dior in some way. She’s been wearing more Dior throughout this year, she’s been to several Dior shows and store openings, and those are exactly the kind of moves a starlet would make if she’s encouraging the label to hire her. But the angle that Star has taken is pretty typical tabloid crap:

After a year of negotiations, Jennifer Lawrence has finally signed on as the leading face of the Christian Dior label in America. And while Jennifer is thrilled with her new beauty contract, the brand’s three famous spokeswomen – Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, and Mila Kunis – are furious.

“Natalie, Mila and Charlize are not happy,” an insider tells Star. “It’s a big slap in their pretty faces. They feel like they’re being replaced by a younger actress.”

But so far, Jennifer isn’t going to let their sour grapes ruin her latest accomplishment.

“Jen is thrilled,” says the source. “She’s nervous and exited to see her face splashed all over magazine and billboards. She’s never thought of herself as pretty or glamorous, so this is a great honor for her.”

Charlize is the face of J’adore Dior, the perfume. Natalie Portman is the face of the Dior makeup line and of the Miss Dior Cherie perfume. Mila represents the Miss Dior handbag line. What is left to represent? Because I don’t think any of those ladies are being “replaced” so if J-Law was hired for something, it’s something that is either new, or not being currently represented by Mila, Natalie or Charlize. I don’t even know.

    It would be funny since her crazy fans are so obsessed with saying how Jennifer is so different from other actresses. She’s “normal” and doesn’t about the fame and glamour.

    Nah. She’s just like the rest of them. Not that’anything wrong but I don’t know why people think she’s so different.

  2. Nikita says:

    I love the redwhite flowerdress but her hair is A desaster. Too much beachgirl mixed with diorchic? Not good not good , bad bad choice

  3. Bubbling says:

    She has the strangest smile of all times, it’s like her face is frozen and then she cringes with eyes wide open!

  4. Christina says:

    I have a hard time believing this story. It’s not like the 80s or 90s when beauty houses just had one ‘face’ (Isabella Rossellini for Lancome or Liz Hurley for Estee Lauder for example). Nowadays, these brands hire several models/celebs to promote different lines. In addition to the women mentioned above, Dior also has Sharon Stone in their ads for products aimed at ‘older’ women’.

    That said, I don’t really like this trend whereby you haven’t made it as an actress unless you’ve got a contract with some beauty firm. I prefer the olden days, when actors acted and models modelled. Maybe I’m old-fashioned that way.

    I rather have her as the face of the brand than Mila. Why did that girl get a contract? She’s not even such a big star back here in Europe and to be honest those posters with Natalie are not so great. She has a major case of dead eyes look. At least Jennifers eyes have some life/sparkle in them.

    • normades says:

      Agree. Mila’s horrible capri pants/running shoes wearing and douche dating is not very Dior.

    • Nessa says:

      I respectfully disagree. I find both Mila and Natalie stunning. I find J. Law so much more likeable than both put together, but based on looks, she can’t hang with those girls. Oh, and I forgot Marion Cotillard. Holy crap. She is seriously like the most beautiful woman on the planet. So, yeah… Sorry Jennifer.

      • normades says:

        Yeah, I didn’t mean that I think JLaw is very Dior either…she’s too “all American”. Marion, of course.

        Nathalie is Dior, but not Dior Miss Cherie. I thought she was a terrible choice for that campaign. Nathalie is too sophisticated, they should have picked n younger “it” girl.

      • Christina says:

        Portman sophisticated? She’s about as sophisticated as my 5 year old niece’s crayon set!

        And I think the reason she got the Dior contract is that she was ‘having a moment’ with all the hype over the ‘Black Swan’ Oscar. Ditto Mila Kunis. Never mind that they were both, especially the latter, embarrassingly awful in what was an embarrassingly awful film.

      • normades says:

        Wow! Your Niece’s crayola set graduated from Harvard and won an Oscar!??!!

        Not a Portman fan, but Black Swan wasn’t just a moment. My point was she was not suited for the campaign.

  6. normades says:

    JLaw will get nominated for an Oscar this year. She may even win. Dior is smart to engage her in a contract now. She is pushing ahead of all the other Starlets at an amazing rate.

    I’m surprized Rooney Mara doesn’t have a big couture contract. She seems more high fashion and less “all-American” than the others.

  7. Calabaza says:

    Natalie is too old to be MISS Dior. Sorry but that fragance is for younger girls.

  8. Michele says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with actresses signing on to promote designer brands. Jennifer is a very attractive young woman who I think is very photogenic. Let’s face it, actresse of every caliber are jumping on this promotiomal bandwagon. If it’s good enough for acting pros like Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron, then it should be good enough for up and coming acting talents like Jennifer.

    • Christina says:

      She’s pretty but in a girl next doory sort of way. I wouldn’t give her a second glance if I passed her on the street. There are any number of young woman out there just as attractive as she is – I think a model for a major Paris fashion house should have a little something special, and most of these actresses promoting designer houses (with the exception of Charlize Theron and Monica Bellucci, both of whom started out as models) just don’t.

      Anyway, since it’s very likely that whatever she’s advertising is going to be aimed at women half my age, I doubt anyone at Dior much cares what I think!

  9. Amy says:

    I agree that there’s nothing left for Jennifer to represent. In addition to what’s mentioned in the article Marion Corillard represents Lady Dior, and Eva Green represents one of their fragrances. That’s A LOT of actresses.

  10. Talie says:

    They’re probably more jealous of her career.

  11. Meh says:

    This girl is no model, she’s a good actress and with a good road ahead of her. I hope they haven’t signed her to anything, she is not high fashion, and I am SICK of actors and actresses shilling crap left and right. I mean K-Stew, really?? Ugh!

  12. Kate says:

    Am I in the minority for missing the days of major models being the main faces of brands/campaigns? Personally, the only actresses who represent a brand adequately are ones that initially started out as models (i.e. Charlize Theron).

  13. mystified says:

    Don’t. Forget Natalies support of convicted child rapist Roman Polanski.

  14. A Fan says:

    Shouldn’t a spokesmodel be photogenic?

  15. kristinlistin says:

    This girl isn’t even pretty!!!

  16. LucaBella says:

    I wondered if anyone was going to notice that Jennifer is really funny looking, and not even pretty…

  17. V says:

    Dior suits her, perhaps she suits Dior -she does seem to be projecting an image similar to those of the other “Dior girls”?

  18. M. says:

    Good for Jennifer….damn, what a year Lawrence is having!.

  19. Fire says:

    The problem with her signing for dior is that her dresses coming to oscar season are gonna be so predictable. She is gonna wear those horrible marquesa dresses (weinstein) or the dior dresses which usually are pretty uncomfortable. Anyway, i am calling it marquesa for the golden globes and dior for the oscar. No little surprises like 2011 oscars with francisco costa or prabal gurun on the hunger games premiere.
