Jennifer Lawrence doubles down on sideboob in Paris: goth cool or poseur?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence has been promoting Catching Fire worldwide for the past week including premires in Rome, Madrid, and Berlin with mixed results. If we’re just talking about clothes, the London premiere was particularly iffy. Most of us have recognized that Dior and Jennifer are a weird match, but these jaunts have still quite entertaining. This sequel should be a box-office smash that deserves all its success (sketchy Finnick promotion notwithstanding).

Sadly we don’t have photos from the Oslo premiere, but JLaw stepped onto the Paris red carpet flanked in Dior couture. She doubled down on the barely-there sidebook from her Rome look, and the Paris dress is definitely more scandalous than we’re used to from uber-wholesome Jennifer. The runway version of this dress illustrates that this gown wasn’t meant for anyone with an over-B-sized rack, but Jennifer still carries off the look. Or does she? Any more boob, and we’d be blurring like crazy.

I’m not so sure about JLaw’s “goth” makeup. The dark-red lips are pretty cool, but the severe eyeliner is a no go. The ear cuffs are kind of neat though, right?

Elizabeth Banks wore a halter gown by Alexander McQueen. The dress itself is decent, but the stylists didn’t tailor it well to her body. LIz has an amazing bod, and there’s no excuse for a dress making her look frumpy. I’ve included some closeups of her McQueen clutch & statement jewels in the gallery.

    I’m loving her ‘goth’ look. To me, really short blonde hair looks best with darker colors.

  2. Gossy says:

    Jennifer really needs to get her story straight first before she tries to be “relatable”.

    She just claimed that she was on medication for social anxiety in elementary school, but it was okay because she had friends….yet she claimed previously to have been bullied in elementary/junior high. Wouldn’t that have been a good time to mention “I was bullied and it was really bad because I also had social anxiety.” And I can imagine kids with social anxiety being bullied because of it but Jennifer specifically mentions “I had friends” and no mention of bullying.

    Honestly her fans will lap up her comments with no problems but the only reason they like her is because she makes these false comments.

    • ANDREA1 says:

      I was just thinking how the same but if you ask Me almost every actor in hollywood claim to have been bullied while younger and in school smh.. They feel it makes them likable and gains them sympathy.

    • Lol says:

      being friends and getting bullied are not mutually exclusive. I was bullied in elementary school, I still had friends. It is rare that everyone is bullying one person. It is also rare that the only people you know/can be friends with are in your year. I hated going to school, made me really anxious, but I was okay because I had friends outside of school

    • Mary says:

      Your logic needs work. She never once claimed that she didn’t have friends; you can be bullied for social anxiety and still have some friends you know. And she stated before that her bullying was in elementary school and junior high, but it got better as she got older and starting acting.

      Celebs, like people, tell stories slightly differently each time; from different perspectives, angles, and interpretations. Are you a record player? Do you tell the same story verbatim the exact same way? It doesn’t mean you are lying or that Jennifer is lying. Thus far nothing that she has said has actually proven to be unfounded ( I know people from her hometown who backup what she is saying) ,so until then, combing her interviews like a madwoman looking for slightly different wordings that in your mind read as “inconsistencies” is not the way to go.

      And for someone who hates Jennifer, you really take way more time than any of her fans do in reading/analyzing her comments.

    • Tessa says:

      Her bullies probably weren’t her friends, but that doesn’t mean no one was. I don’t want to pile on, but you really and truly left logic at the door when you wrote this post.

    • marina says:

      I was bullied but also had friends. Only a few close ones that I’m still friends with many years later. I was never much for needing the big numbers of frenemies like some people.

      Since seeing that video of her with the little girl in the wheelchair in England, I am a fan for life. She looks gorgeous too. I hope she doesn’t have a meltdown and go off the rails.

    • wiffie says:

      You can have friends and social anxiety (yours truly). You can even be bullied during all of that. They aren’t mutually exclusive.

    • Tatiana says:

      I have social anxiety and still have a lot of friends. It it plausible and in no way an invention as some people claimed. I relate in this to her (except in the bully part) and I’m not a fans of her (mainly because I don’t like her acting style that much).

  3. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for either dress.
    Jennifer should stick with Calvin Klein.

  4. LadyMTL says:

    I LOVE JLaw’s ear cuffs but aside from those and the lipstick, I don’t like this look. It’s too severe for her (she’s still so young, why do they always try to make her look old?) and the fit of the dress up top looks off.

    • Another Ann says:

      Agree. The fit of the dress is terrible. What is the sense of wearing couture if it looks like an ill-fit, off-the-rack dress?

      Her hair looks good here, and LOVE the ear cuffs. But that dark lipstick on her is a big no, she’s too fair to pull it off.

      I really like Elizabeth’s dress, and it fits the Effie character as well. It’s a fun choice.

  5. MisJes says:

    Liam’s suit is very dapper, and is tailored just beautifully. Best dressed for me!

    And I’ve been saying it for a long time, so I’m glad you’ve picked up on it too Bedhead – Josh’s jawline is AMAZING. So incredibly attractive. Never get tired of looking at that face!

  6. anon1 says:

    She’s looking quite a bit like Cate Blanchett in photo #3.

  7. lisa2 says:

    I like her hair.. mine is short too.

    She just looks different. She looks like Kimberly Stewart for some reason.

    Every new female star wants to be the anti whatever. Thing is women are different and when they all say I won’t diet or exercise or blah blah blah it is subtle shade to others. All women come in different sizes and shapes. None is better. Just different.

  8. Pri says:

    Josh Hutcherson has got quite the style sense. He has always managed to look quite dashing imo. Me likes.

  9. Jackson says:

    I like the makeup with the overall look, but that dress is a big thumb’s down. Too much pleating, too much boob, and an ill-fitting bodice. It looks over-worked, and that’s about the best thing I can say about it. When is her contract up with Dior? Soon, hopefully.

  10. m says:

    I love her look! The make up is beautiful.. so sick of the rule that if you have strong lipstick color you cant have a strong eye make up… you just need to be careful with the colors cause that is a risk to look that you just came for a carnival party… but its not her case ..

  11. chloe says:

    This is my favorite new short do hairstyle she’s worn yet and I actually like the make-up, as for the dress I could care less about the side boob, the dress is just blah, though her boobs just looked smashed and lopsided in it (there are better pictures of what I’m talking about on Daily Mail), I would hate to be stuck wearing one designer all of the time, is she not allowed to wear anyone else?

  12. eliza says:

    That McQueen dress is not flattering to Elizabet’s armpit area.

  13. blue marie says:

    I like her hair and make up, haven’t decided on the dress.

  14. Frida_K says:

    Elizabeth Banks looks different to me. She does not look the same as she did when she was in the first round of these movies. I can’t quite put a finger on why, but something…?

  15. smee says:

    I love that dress and imo it’s one of her best dresses ever. Has an edgy-vintage thing going on. The hair and make-up is very dramatic, but she’s young and can pull it off. Love the shoes she wore with it. Stunning.

    In the first pic of Eliz Banks, it looks like her breasts are bulging out of her dress – I think it’s just the angle, but the dress doesn’t fit/flatter her. Plus her hair…..just not a good night for her.

  16. serena says:

    Elizabeth Banks’s problem it’s not the dress itself, more like her make-up..totally a mess!

  17. The Original G says:

    She’s been looking great at all these premieres without looking plastic. Time to stop trying to make a fashion disaster happen.

  18. marina says:

    She looks gorgeous and that ear “thing” is cool. If I were younger I’d try to rock that look. I love that she says she isn’t going to starve herself. I wish that all young actresses would just rely on their talent instead of aspiring to be “0″ zero.

  19. DreamyK says:

    Why is Elizabeth Banks wearing a wig on her waistline?

  20. Lucy says:

    My favourite look so far. Let’s see what she’ll wear today!

  21. Megan says:

    Another ugly dress, what is going on Jen? When you cut off your hair it’s like you lost all your fashion sense too.

  22. snappyfish says:

    why would a woman choose to wear hairy patches anywhere near her crotch?

  23. nadia says:

    It’s so close to perfection, just not quite, but so much better. Love that she’s in Paris and taking a chance with her look. The problem is just in the execution. The dress just doesn’t fit up top, and makes her right bob look wonky in certain photos. Just an inch more and it would be fine, it would be more than fine. That is the best Dior dress I’ve seen lately and she styled it perfectly with her makeup, hair, and accessories. ( though, her foundation is JUST a shade too light). Love her eyes and lips. I have to say, her make-up on this tour has been really perfect, much better than it was during her oscar’s promo last year.

  24. SuSu says:

    horrible dress!!!!!!!!!!!

    Elizabeth´s foundation is way too dark. Seems there were only two colours and Jennifer got the light foundation while Elizabeth had the bad luck.

  25. yeahright says:

    While I dont prefer the look she’s got going on right now I have to say that she still looks stunning. There is no way I could ever cut my hair like that and look remotely good.

    Not sure how she could be a poseur… at her level, fashion is just fashion. It’s not an identity. Not unless you are Victoria Beckham.

  26. bimboden says:

    JLaw is almost Blanchett-esque in that closeup and I love it.

  27. LadyS says:

    Elizabeth Banks is consistently badly dressed. Time for a new stylist. JLaw is not convincing as a goth-whatever-that-is! I like the hair though.

  28. kim says:

    That outfit is not goth. A black outfit and and a dark lip color doesn’t equal goth lol

  29. Dommy Dearest says:

    How does wearing black and dark lip stick to an event even earn the title ‘poseur’ or even get mentioned? If she was wearing vaulted ceilings and the what not I could see how she’d earn the ‘Gothic’ title but er, they are just clothes.

  30. lola lola says:

    Wow. I have never seen her look more beautiful. Those pictures actually took my breath away. Not to be redundant but…wow.

  31. pirategirl says:

    I love Jennifer’s whole entire look, it is gorgeous! The liner and colors really make her eyes pop, and I love that she’s been wearing her new short hair in different ways. I wish I had that kind of perfect skin, or even knew how to do makeup that way. Elizabeth Banks looks like a bird. Don’t care for anything she’s ever worn.

  32. Green Eggs and Ham says:

    a beautiful ensemble.

  33. Trixie says:

    Best makeup ever on Jennifer. It’s about time! rawr

  34. Apsutter says:

    Loooooooooove it! So cute, love their cuffs and she looks adorbs.

  35. shellybean says:

    Jennifer looks stunning. I hate Elizabeth’s McQueen dress, and it pains me to say that, because I usually love McQueen. The furry hip thing is atrocious, and the bust area makes her look like she has weird boob fat spillage.

  36. K says:

    She looks like Leelee Sobieski in the close up!

  37. Quinn says:

    Definitely like the makeup colors with her hair color.

  38. JB says:

    I actually don’t like her dress. I like Elizabeth’s dress more.

  39. Suze says:

    By far, BY FAR, the best this haircut has looked.

  40. Caroline says:

    I don’t like her at all but the makeup and hair here is just impeccable. Wow.
    The styling is to die for as well. Now I covet the dress and ear cuffs
