Jennifer Lawrence in little black Dior at ‘Silver Linings’ premiere: hot or meh?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence looked really polished on the red carpet of last night’s Los Angeles screening of Silver Linings Playbook, and look, you guys, no Marchesa! I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’ve been dreading producer Harvey Weinstein’s heavy-handed ways and was almost virtually certain that this premiere would feature poor JLaw in some sky-blue, ice-capadey nightmare resembling that colored toilet paper that was so popular in the 1970s before it was banned for health reasons due to sheer common sense.

However, Jennifer looks great here. She’s made the most of her status as the latest face of Dior by going with this sexy, little black coat dress. Jennifer accessorized with an embroidered belt, moderate cleavage, and muscular long legs. Her makeup is quite dramatic (love those smoky eyes) and appropriate for the overall look, and while I’m not a huge fan of the “unfinished” aspect of her pulled-back hair (it’s a bit too bumpy), I’ll take this over awful winged bangs or hair extensions any day of the year. Go JLaw!

Bradley Cooper looked the same as he always does (maybe a little less serial killer-esque) in this silver suit. I’ve just realized that his hair is really bothersome to me. He looks so twitchy too. Why is he a thing in Hollywood?

Hey look, it’s Chris Tucker. Remember him? I have to admit I kind of missed this guy, so I’m glad he’s in this movie too.

Dermot Mulroney was there too, but I’m not sure why! This guy is so adorable and sexy, and he’s been in my state filming August: Osage County (with George Clooney). I keep secretly hoping that, for no reason at all, Dermot will show up at my gym and start sweating profusedly. Hey, a girl can dream.

    I think she looks good if not a bit odd, can’t quite put my finger on it though. Love the dress..

    I will admit that I have seen The Wedding Date far more times than I care to admit simply because Mulroney is in it..

    • gogoGorilla says:

      It’s the hair.

      I think the dress is very cute, but the hair is really dreadful. She has a very high forehead and would do better with some length in the front (side-swept bangs), I think.

      Also, can I say how much I really really hate the current crop of skinny suits on men?? They look to me like they shopped in the teen section. Ugh.

      • spinner says:

        Yep…it’s the hair…& the dress would look better just an inch or two longer. I know what you mean about the skinny suits — it equates to looking a size or so too small. Just like we critique women when their clothes look ill-fitted.

      • HotPockets says:

        It’s her hair and the eyebrows. They’re super uneven and need to be shaped/ tinted to match her hair.

      • Amelia says:

        Yup, definitely the hair.
        At first glance I thought she had corn-rows.

    • Shoes says:

      She looks more orange than normal?

      The overall look is rather disappointing. The dress is nothing special and the hair is not good.

  2. Riana says:

    I’m a fan from the neck down. From the neck up its totally unfinished. The makeup doesn’t match or compliment the look, the hair is boring. The smokey eyes are just…sigh. It looks like she did her own makeup and it would be great for work but not for such a sexy outfit.

    Lots of meh.

    I LOVE Chris Tucker and I’m so glad to see him back. Poor guy.

    • V4Real says:

      Funny you should mention Chris Tucker. Yes he is back and he is back in stand-up. His Guess Who’s back Tour will be in NY on Dec 13. Love him.

      I have a girl crush on JLaw but that hair has got to go. Her feet look like they are very uncomfortable in those heels. I think the girl is committing shoeicide.

    • Charmander says:

      She’s got the Middleton eye going on.

  3. KellyinSeattle says:

    Mulroney is MINE! 🙂
    JL has a beautiful face/eyes. One of the prettiest in Hollywood, I think. I really like the dress. I don’t really like the hair, and I would’ve chosen different earrings, but I wasn’t invited so….and it wasn’t Stella McCartney; I cringe at her name. Anyone else laugh/groan when they saw her lastest ensemble?

  4. kate says:

    love Chris Tucker. Suprised Jackie Chan isnt in SLP, as I thought they had a lifetime contract together.

    I kid, great to see him again in a film. He is a funny dude.

  5. serena says:

    I loathe her make-up and hairstyle-colour here.

  6. Ann says:

    I love the dress itself, but not the way it’s accessorized. There’s no punch to the overall look.

    The shoes are too delicate for the dress. It needs something chunkier, maybe a platform. A print shoe would be great, or a color or metallic pewter or something similar.

    The jewelry is wrong too. Needs a bigger bolder earring. And a chunky ring perhaps.

    Don’t like the hair. The color is much darker than her natural (it’s for a role), so it needs a softer style. This is too harsh for her. The makeup is meh.

    I do love her, and she’s a very pretty girl. She just needs to get a good hair/makeup/stylist team on board. And she needs to start taking some more fashion risks.

    And when did Dermot Mulroney get so gray? Is it for a role, or natural? Eek!

  7. heatheradair says:

    Feel like the eye makeup doesn’t make the most of her lovely eyes (OR take the shape of her eyes into account). With the hooded/down-turned shape, doesn’t help to have liner allllllllll the way around the eye — I’d have kept the bottom liner to the outer corners and kept the taupe shadow closer to the outer corners of the top lid (and left a lot of light space toward the brow bone). Would have opened things up a lot more.

    And the spray tan isn’t doing her any favors….

    BUT (but!) — her legs look amazing, those shoes are hot as hell, and the dress is killer.

    All-in-all (after some makeup tweaks), she looks EXCELLENT.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I have the same kind of hooded (or as I call it, perpetually sleepy) eyes and I always have problems figuring out how to line them properly. I may just write out your post and take it home with me! 🙂

      Anyway, I agree that the makeup isn’t doing her any favours but I do like the coat-thing. I maybe would have put on a lapis necklace or something, just for a little color around the chest area.

  8. T.C. says:

    The dress is a little too short. Besides that I like it and she looks beautiful. Bradley cooper is a big meh. Chris Tucker is so-so but nice to see him.

  9. normades says:

    Spray tan and make-up are just awful. The rest is just meh.

  10. dj says:

    I want that dress! This is a great dress for her. K Stew take notes please. Bradley Cooper. Ugh. I’m not sure “why he is a thing either.” Dermot’s voice is like heaven as is his beautiful hair. Yummy.

  11. Lulu says:

    I her lips are amazing. She looks gorgeous, but I too am a bit puzzled by her hair.

  12. Apples says:

    I think she looks good.
    It seems as if this was more of a semi-casual, rather than formal, event and this styling represents this perfectly. I love how her earrings are so low-key, almost as if her stylist is sending message, ” This is a film and I am a serious actress.”
    99% of people look horrible in satin. I can not believe that she is able to pull it off so well.

    Finally: I have a crush on Chris Tucker. We need him in more movies.

  13. Nessa says:

    I see pictures of her and either think she is gorgeous or I think she is just average. Here she definitely looks beautiful. I still think her smile is sort of awkward, but her face is striking. She is so unique looking. Overall this is a good look!

    • Belle says:

      This^^^^ and this^^^^.
      Honestly, this girl has a look that drives me crazy… sometimes I think she looks stunning, and other times I can’t stand her look. The only thing I am sure of (at least I think I’m sure…lol) is I never like her smile. Not sure if she just doesn’t have a great smile, or if she is just always smiling very awkwardly in every single photo.

  14. themummy says:

    From neck down: amazing!! I love LOVE that dress. She’s just gorgeous.

    Above the neck: Holy crap…awful. The hair is bizarre and not flattering, and her make up looks just plain bad. It doesn’t accentuate her features at all, and even the coloring is bad for her. It’s probably almost unbelievably difficult to make a face like that look bad, but her makeup/hair artist did just that. Yuck.

    But man…is she ever gorgeous. Love her.

  15. Nya says:

    I just read some old interviews with her and holy crap is she a dolt. Good actress but lord is she stupid and ignorant.

    • Dana says:

      The problem with overexposure is that you get annoying too fast… And please, aside for her plain neighborhood girl persona, weight talk and silly antics, she’s as opaque as all the others starlets. She’s a people pleaser using reverse psychology… but it’s her time, so we’ll let it pass.. In two years, there’ll be another one similar or what not, rammed down your throat.

  16. hayley says:

    everything about her (looks, personality, style, acting) is exceptionally average. i dont understand how SHE is a big thing in hollywood.

    • layla says:

      THANKYOU – I can not second this enough!

    • Ein says:

      Thank you! I don’t get it either. She is a good actress, but her personality…sometimes it looks like she is trying too hard. I don’t get why people is so fascinated with her. She is not that special, imo. I kinda like her but adore her as many do? Nah.

      I also don’t get the BCoop hate. He is funny, and charming. And quite humble. And (i might be in the minority here) i think he is a good actor.

  17. Merman says:

    She has a gorgeous face and body(spray tan and hair color aside).

  18. Pedge says:

    SMOKING hot. She can do no wrong.

  19. amandapanda says:

    meh – i don’t love the dress – i don’t like those wide belt things where they seem to be squeeeeeezing the wearer in half all in pursuit of an hourglass shape and then the bottom sort of flares out in a weird way

    and the hair is awful

    she is gorgeous tho, and her hair looks great

    • amandapanda says:

      her LEGS look great

      not her hair

      her hair, as previously mentioned, looks awful

      *goes back to bed*

  20. Alexis says:

    Ah, Dermot. *nods approvingly*

  21. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Cant decide if I will see this. Have to sit and think about if my like for her trumps my dislike for him…hmmm….

  22. Bella Bella says:

    I think she looks gorgeous. I am crazy for a short flaired dress though especially with her killer body. She’s hot.

  23. JMH says:

    I think she looks great here. I really love the dress. She still seems a bit awkward in front of the camera, I am looking forward to seeing mages in a year and thinking ‘wow, she’s really learned to own that red carpet’

  24. Cathy says:

    I like the dress. But the makeup and hair don’t go together. I don’t care for the hair. Way to much eye makeup. She should of toned it down a little bit.

  25. anneesezz says:

    Love it.

  26. Jordan says:

    Love Jen, love the dress and makeup…..good lord Jennifer Lawrence has such an amazing figure. Looking forward to Silver Linings Playbook as the reviews have been stellar, especially for Lawrence.

  27. valleymiss says:

    I just wanna pull out her pony tail and brush out those bumps in her hair. Yikes.

  28. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I like everything except her hair. Hate the hair style, awful.

    And I don’t get why this SLPB is getting all of this buzz, if going by the trailer it looked like some boring, budget romantic drama/comedy thing that we’ve all seen before.

  29. taxi says:

    I like her dress a lot; she’s young enough to wear it short & look good. The simplicity is classic & I don’t mind the hair. It’s refreshing to see somebody who doesn’t have uberlong hair hanging into her armpits or cleavage.

    I hate having somebody else’s hair get all over me at an event where people are close together, especially from the gals who like to toss their heads.

  30. Anna says:

    Her body is hot!

  31. Kate says:

    She looks like young Toni Braxton

  32. El Kiddo says:

    This girt has a really hot body and is really pretty. But she does need to learn some styling, what works for her and what’s not, also learn to smile properly. She constantly looks like she’s in pain.

  33. ew says:

    Jennifer’s face always looks so bloated. I always think she has done injections in her cheeks. 🙁

  34. M. says:

    Wow, Jennifer looks lovely. Amazing figure, very talented actress.

  35. Jess says:

    Eh, I feel like this is more of a miss than a hit for Jennifer.

    It’s such a lovely little dress, and her figure looks amazing, but I’m not a fan of her slingback shoes, I feel that they’re too mature-looking and a round-toed pump may have worked better here. Also, her tan is far too orange.

    I like her make-up, and love the nude lip to draw more attention to the dramatic smokey eyes, and her skin is fantastic.

    Her hair is just one big NO – it’s lying too flat to her crown, and overall just looks messy, underdone and lazy. A different style would have changed this look right around for her, IMO.

  36. Sara says:

    I find her and Bradley together in a romantic comedy a little disturbing as she is 21 or 22 and he is 37. I think its time Hollywood stop doing the older guy younger girl thing. It’s kind of gross imo.

  37. Gym Rat says:

    We get it. You go to the gym. Will you stop referencing it now?

  38. mila says:

    With this styling she loks much oolder than she really is. Not to mention orange skin.
