Jennifer Lawrence in silk & suede at Paris Dior show: gorgeous or orange?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawerence crept out of hiding yesterday to attend the Dior show at Paris fashion week. She was just named Forbes’ most powerful actress (she earned $34 million in a year!), and part of that power (and money) comes from representing Dior. I wish they’d give her better designs, but this ensemble is better than some of the wrinkled candy fug or vampy Dior designs she’s worn already. JLaw’s wearing an off-white silk scarf top with a white suede skirt. The high waist on the skirt accentuates her shape, and the thin straps on the top show off enough skin to matter (although in other photos, sideboob came out to play). She looks both young and sophisticated. Those asymmetrical strappy shoes are gorge.

Jennifer’s looking very tan in these photos. It looks like a fake tan, right? Her face is darker than her arms. Maybe JLaw used the kind of lotion that develops more on oilier parts of the face. It’s happened to me! Now I only put a little bit on my forehead. JLaw doesn’t look bad, just a little overbaked. Her makeup and hair otherwise look fresh and pretty.

Emma Watson’s Dior dress was more flouncy than JLaw’s outfit. Emma wore a structured blue and white silk dress, and I loved the skirt part. The asymmetrical bodice and neckline was a little too weird, but Dior couture is such a mess nowadays without John Galliano’s touch. He won’t be back though.

Emma’s hair and makeup look so lovely! She’s an English rose.

    Too orange, really too much. Emma Watson is looking super cute/rather gorgeous though!

  2. don't kill me i'm french says:

    What tan!!! Sean Penn is jealous!
    on the outfits,i have nothing to write.I hate Dior ‘s Raf Simons .

  3. Kaboom says:

    Who had the bright idea to take pictures of a white dress against a white backdrop?

  4. Dinah says:

    Poor Jennifer. She often has bad maquillage, and this day’s photo is no exception. Too much eyeliner, bronzer; too pale a lip.
    Dress & shoes are fantastic, though. Amazing, actually. Hair quite pretty.

  5. Kiddo says:

    She looks fantastic, I don’t mind the tan, but the photographer wasn’t thinking by shooting her on the white path. Should have just positioned her on the lawn, for crissakes. The dress gets lost, the lighting/speed was lazy.

  6. Farah says:

    The photo of them together is adorable. You should’ve included that.

  7. Abbott says:

    Did JLaw get burnt and the make up artist over corrected? I like her, but it looks terrible. Especially when she has to stand next to Emma.

  8. Tiffany :) says:

    My theory: jlaw has a sunburned face they tried to cover with makeup. I saw a photo of her later at the event, and she was pretty red on the cheeks and forehead.

    It is just so weird that her face is so much oranger than the rest of her, I can’t imagine why someone would let her leave the house looking like that.

  9. Tamara says:

    Emma looks like a couture darling and I love that she kept her hair and makeup fairly simple and chic! JLaw looks like a soccer mom that spent too long in the tanning bed- it’s not just the makeup, but the hair that’s not working for me.
    Guess which one is the face of Dior? *sigh*

    Dior really needs to sign Emma, she always kills it in Dior and looks better than some of Diors ambassadors while she’s at it! Her Golden Globes pants-dress and now this.. She is just such a good fit for Dior.

    • TC says:

      Like JLaw, Emma Watson is under contract with Dior. As are Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron. I think Emma Watson looks fabulous here. Hair, makeup, styling, everything…in both outfits. She also has the style, elegance and class for someone so young to carry it off. She really serves the Dior brand well.

      And I agree with others on this thread that JLaw’s face palming antics are unnecessary and tiring. She really needs to forgo her constant attention-seeking red carpet antics. It’s really getting old.

  10. Nev says:

    Emma is so fashion. Such poise too. Love it.

  11. Lady Macbeth (ex HiddlesF) says:

    I think Emma has better makeup than Jennifer. Both dresses are awful IMHO….

    • paola says:

      I was starting to wonder if I’m the only one to think both dresses are horrible. It seems like Dior lately got inspired from the cheap Chinese clothes market. Those dresses look so very cheap and ill fitting.
      Plus Jennifer Lawrence seems more and more an asshole to me. Facepalming someone at an important event is stupid and immature. Emma Watson looks really uncomfortable in those pics.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        I don’t think she’s an asshole, she just needs needs to be the centre of attention AT ALL TIMES. The funny thing is she doesn’t have to do anything and she would still be the centre of attention.

      • Val says:

        I think Emma’s dress would be amazing, if the top part was taken in instead of being floaty. But otherwise yeah… not a fan of post-Galliano Dior.
        Agree on everything else.

      • TG says:

        Agree @paola about Jennifer being a jerk. We have seen too many instances where she does something at an event or party to get attention such as stopping everyone at a party because she has to sneeze and needs a glass of water. The gross thing is all the sycophants who surround her think it is cute and rush to fulfill her every wish. Face palming someone is an aggressive action even if the other person takes it well and laughs it off. If Emma behave any other way the reports would be out making her look jealous, etc. Years ago when I was in college and running cross country we had a girl on there who liked attention and would playfully push people and she pushed me and I went animal on her and tackled her to the ground. It was instinct and not something I planned. She was shocked and so was everyone else but no one has the right to touch someone in an aggressive way.

      • JessMa says:

        TG, Emma laughed the whole time and then hung out with her after the event. Also she asked for an assistant to get her water when she had the hiccups, big deal.

  12. Talie says:

    Yeah, no one did couture better than John Galliano.

  13. Dawn says:

    I think they both look absolutely lovely. And I don’t see the orange tan on Jennifer at all, well not in this case at least.

  14. Jen says:

    JLaw has been hanging out with Tan Mom.

  15. lisa2 says:

    I don’t see the orange on Jennifer at all. She looks very bronzed to me more than anything else. The dress is not bad just very average and it nor she does anything for it.

    I like the front of Emma’s dress; but then I saw the top back and it was not what I expected. That underlayer is too visible in the back and I don’t like that part.

  16. FingerBinger says:

    Jennifer looks cute. The tan is a little much though. Emma is cute, I just find her boring.

  17. Josephine says:

    She looks so much better in the less staged pic – wonder if the lighting was just weird. I like the outfit and her hair.

  18. Dany says:

    Emma´s make-up is always perfect… no wonder tiny-eyed tanning mom facepalmed her!
    But honestly who is Jennifer´s make-up artist? That make-up looks so terrible,

  19. nadia says:

    Jennifer needs a slightly less shimmery lip with a little more color, and some mascara (where ARE her eyelashes?), but I like the dress and her hair! Emma looks great, the dress is a little odd but I like the optical illusion at the top i think.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      Guess what, deep set eyes are a B*TCH to have knock you over eyelashes on camera with. (I should know, I have them). But they also never look bulgey or buggy. You gotta work with what you got. I agree w/other posters that heavily lined eyes is not the best but sometimes a girl just feels like it regardless of eye shape, blah blah. She is young enough to do this still and I say more power to her, if she’s still at it in ten yrs. like Princess Kate then we can talk. The main crime here imo is the base, no makeup artist worth their salt should have let that mismatched travesty happen. If they thought she was looking washed out with the white they could have done a peachy blush and a bright rosy lip like Emma. Agree the frosty lip is also tacky, basically her makeup artist sucks to high heaven and that is more to blame than attacking the shape of her individual parts as some have done imho.

  20. Allie says:

    Emma makes even the ugliest dresses look good. Lover her. And I absolutely love her shoes.

    The only thing I like on jennifer is that leather jacket.

  21. smee says:

    I don’t think JLaw looks good in white – not her color at all. Also, isn’t the top a different shade of white from the bottom? Both outfits are kinda terrible, imo, but I like both of their shoes.

  22. Dany says:

    Can you imagine you´re at a famous fashion show, you want to look the best you can because it is part of your job. Of course you have professional applied make-up, styled hair and an expensive outfit and then someone palms his (maybe sweaty) hand into your face? All in front of the cameras just for fun? Nice.

    • Val says:

      Yeah but it’s so adorable and real! She’s so much fun and awesome, I wish she was my best friend. She’s just like us!

    • Marianne says:

      I think it all depends on the context. If they were just asked to take a picture together and Jennifer just went ahead and did that, then yes that would be super rude. If they were both kind of goofing off, poking, lightly slapping each other that kind of thing….then I dont see it as being rude…especially if you’re friends. Its kind of hard to go by on one photo on what happened.

  23. zan says:

    So disrespectful the hand in the face. It’s dirty, I would be so piss..
    Grow up jennifer!

  24. Becki says:

    LOVE Jennifer’s dress & SHOES!! Her face IS super tan though, odd. Emma’s make up & hair looks better, but I am NOT a fan of her dress. UGH. Also, that facepalm is NOT cute, definitely think it’s rude.

  25. Hissyfit says:

    Wow! That lipstick color washes off JLaw – she looks terrible. Like she’s ill or something! I love her shoes though!

    I think the photo of her with Emma is cute!

    • Mena says:

      There’s a worse picture than this on Dlisted where Emma looks like she is about to fall over trying to get away. Where I am from, face palming is rude and a sign of aggression/disrespect. And in this scenario, she most likely smudged poor Emma’s makeup. Why do her fans keep making excuses for her rude, attention seeking behavior? She seems so phony to me.

  26. alexc says:

    I would kill for that leather jacket.

  27. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Love Jennifer’s shoes madly.

  28. poppy says:

    so they couldn’t match any other part of her body with her face?
    her face is so orange compared to her legs. and the white path brings out her nicks and dings.
    this was done by a professional? Ugh

  29. Mrs McCubbins says:

    Both look gorgeous! I love the dresses as well.

  30. Lucy says:

    They both looked lovely and like they had a great time. I wish you had included more pictures of them hanging out together, though. That facepalm one is amazing!!!

  31. Jenna says:

    It’s so so so wrong – I am in no way whatsoever near the shape of JLaw (being 6’2 and 34E makes a nonsense of me trying to ape my elfin betters) but damn it all…

    I’ve grabbed every screen grab I can find of the dress, am having my husband toss them into the program he made me that will turn it into a rough 360′ spinning view, and will tomorrow descend into my lab (fine, sewing room/office) and figure out how to make that top dress. Maybe in jewel tones instead of white? I have the suede to dye (no one freak out peta-style. I bought 5 1970′s couches a few years ago to salvage leather & suede that’s been dead longer then I’ve been alive) and there is a whole section of my office that is silk & satins… it will be mine. And for about $10 and 2 days of insanity and NOT the likely $1000′s of a ‘real’ Dior. I’m crazy AND cheap. But barring her oscar trip dress, this has to be one of the prettiest things she has worn!

  32. Ice Queen says:

    Orange is the new (and old) NO-NO!

  33. Anne tommy says:

    If you are going to have a post about good looking talented actors who are too orange, please make it about Hiddles…

    I like J Law, I saw her in a personal appearance at the Edinburgh Film Festival a few years ago promoting Winter’s Bone and her star quality was obvious then.

  34. Newyorking says:

    What’s with the bruises on JLaw’s leg. She is not the right match for Dior. She is not as sophisticated and elegant; Dior stands for elegance. Look at Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard. Their very look personifies elegance. J Law’s doesn’t. J Law is too out there; she is “America’s sweetheart” but just not the Dior girl.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      She is young, and clearly has a makeup artist who ignores her body. (Seriously, I thought most A-listers would have a team on hand to go over them with MAC body paint!). She makes action movies which probably cause the bruises. While I agree she is not French or elegant, I do think she is very popular with young women generally and Dior obv. want to capitalize on that. They are clearly trying to sell makeup, perfume and maybe handbags to the rich teens/young women, that’s where the market is now.

      J.Law has a much wider fanbase than a Cotillard or Tatou, adorable as they are. The elite few who can buy the clothes don’t really care who advertises them. She is not a fashion girl, so what. She is tall and looks good in ads/(some of) the clothes. I have no more problem with this mismatch than I do Julia Roberts & Lancome (has just always felt “off” to me, Idkw), GOOP & Max Factor (please like she would touch that peasant crap!), Nicole K. & Chanel No.5, any celeb who pretends to wear H&M, etc. It’s business, it’s not always going to be honest or a perfect match. This bothers me much less than celebs who pretend like they would ever wear budget/high street clothes (ScarJo, Mango), at least J.Law dutifully wears the clothes, sometimes I wish she wouldn’t, she looks much cuter in more modern stuff, but it’s a job and she’s getting paid.

  35. Shazz says:

    She looks great, they both do. Who was the genius who put the white dress on a white carpet?

  36. Marianne says:

    Jennifer was looking quite orange in the face, probably her make-up artist put on too much bronzer.

  37. Janet says:

    The top of Lawrence’s dress doesn’t fit right and it looks like somebody spilled ink on it. Love the leather jacket, though.

    Watson looks lovely as per usual.

  38. hownowbrowncow says:

    Everyone is over Jennifer at this point. Facepalm is not cute, get over yourself. Tacky-looking frosted shadow drawing attention to her hooded eyelids. She looks so strange here.

  39. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Her face is so much darker than her bod it’s ridic, I actually think some fake tan would have looked better with the white dress (a good one), if bronzed was what they were going for. White is hard for pale girls to pull off, some of us can do ivory or a true white if it’s just creamy enough, but that’s about it. I was watching Joan Collins on QVC the other day (G-d help me!) and I got totally drawn in by her patter, she was dishing out lots of (mainly obvious) beauty advice, but matching the decollatage/bod to the face was one of her main bugbears. She wears more eyeliner than Rocky Raccoon (or Princess Kate) but she is fabulous!

    I don’t love Emma’s dress one little bit, but her makeup is pretty. She could have done something with her hair though, is kinda boring.

  40. als says:

    When I saw this photo of JLaw I thought she looked cadaveric and it is so blatant. Why would she fake tan? WHYYYY? She is 24!
    And that lip color, I used to own it until I realized that there is no way to look good with it.
    Of course, the antics are wonderful as always!
    Say what you will, she may not pull off Dior, but she definitely likes this kind of gigs. It’s no shame in admitting that you are a girly girl, JLaw!
