Jennifer Lawrence in shimmery Calvin Klein at the Vanity Fair party: perfection?

Jennifer Lawrence

Yowza. Jennifer Lawrence killed it at the Vanity Fair Oscar party after her rise (and fall) on the way to claim her gold-plated statuette. This gown is Calvin Klein, and this is how you do shiny and metallic well … unlike Halle Berry’s dress for the evening. Does anyone actually think this dress would have looked better at the awards ceremony itself instead of the poufy Dior ball gown? It would have never happened though because Jlaw’s contractually obligated to wear Dior to most major events now, but a girl can dream.

This was JLaw’s night, and she clearly enjoyed the hell out of herself in this dress that highlighted every curve on her body. Everything about this look — from the fit to the hair and makeup to the simple yet bold jewelry (even the statement ring) — is perfection here. I dare you to find a flaw. Finally, her stylist got it all right at the very last possible moment of the awards season.

Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel didn’t look at all like her usual whimsiquirkalicious self in this drab Valentino dress. It’s a pretty dress, but it didn’t jump out and (obnoxiously?) grab you like most of Zooey’s wardrobe. Honestly, she looked kind of miserable, and the dress really swallowed her up. Her new haircut is really cute though!

Jason Statham

Hot Jason Statham was there with Rosie Huntington-Whitely, who wore a really ugly Valentino couture dress. So many ruffles, and so many layers, and so much pink. Not only was the dress pink, but Rosie pinked up her mood lips too. The choker portion of this getup looks very uncomfortable as well. At least Jason looked good, but it’s pretty hard to mess up a tux. Guys are so lucky that way.

Leslie Mann

Leslie Mann wore a red-orange Andrew Gn gown with long sleeves and an understated plunge to the neckline. I think she looked really great here! Even though she’s totally covered up, Leslie managed to look both sexy and sophisticated due to the great fit of this dress. Her hair and makeup are typical of her usual style, but they’re still gorgeous here. This is how to be alluring while not letting one’s rack fall out all over the red carpet.

    Love JLaw, but why are so many boobs looking squashed this year? WTF?

    OT, looks like Lindsay Lohan tried to crash the Oscars but only made it as far as the bathrooms.

    • Anonny says:

      She’s too young to have her breasts that low. The torso of that dress is too short and works against her frame. Too bad she had to wear it.

      • Ellen Smith says:

        Her breasts aren’t low – our society is so used to seeing women with implants that sit unnaturally high on the chest (pretty much starting right below their chin)that they can’t even remember what a real woman’s chest looks like.

      • Elizabeth says:

        I remember ages back reading that breasts are ‘supposed’ to sit halfway between your elbow crease and your shoulder. Which is exactly where they are on her.

    • bluhare says:

      Weird. Now I replied, the comment is there. I think my computer’s having Issues.

    • Jackson says:

      Where is this delicious Lohan story???

      • cmc says:

        I’ll second that!! I’m having a rough Monday…my soul NEEDS an embarrassing Lohan story. Call it a pick-me-up.

    • pamspam says:

      I must be the only one who got the Lohan reference. Haha! I thought the same thing. For those who missed it – there was some issue with a clogged or overflowing toilet at the Dolby Theater, and icky water flooded a section…kind of like what Lilo was accused of doing on the Glee (?) set. πŸ™‚

  2. Hannah says:

    J-Law’s CK is the dress of the night for me!

  3. RocketMerry says:

    I actually dislike the colour. A bit too low cut, too. But it was her night and she’s just so friggin’ fun, pretty and adorable, she gets a pass.

  4. vixo says:

    I’m not a JLaw fan but she does look stunning. And Leslie Mann looks amazing too.

  5. Agnes says:

    zooey – terrible dress. terrible. and the haircut would be ok if she were like 4 or 5 years old. she’s always a miss.

  6. Kat says:

    I don’t think Zooey Deschanel got a haircut. She has an ugly faux bob to match her awful dress.

  7. Isa says:

    Wowza! Jlaw looks amazing. That photo of her from behind has me drooling.
    I adore Lezlie Mann. She’s a vampire right? Seems like she hasn’t aged a bit.
    Zooey has the most beautiful skin.

  8. elkiddo says:

    Oh J Law is perfection in this!

  9. Dee Cee says:

    Did Rosie know Jason was her date.. does he really care?

  10. AmyLynne says:

    Love jlaws dress and Leslie Mann looked great!! I love the sleeves.

  11. NorthernGirl_20 says:

    Love Leslie Mann’s dress she looks amazing and JLaw looks awesome too.. Usually absolutely LOVE Zooey but ugh, not that dress or hair at all total fail.

  12. Sam says:

    The prevalence of chokers at the Oscars makes me think the alleged 90s revival is in fact happening.

  14. Patrice says:

    Wowza Jennifer!! That girl is something else talent, looks, professionalism, just everything-wise πŸ˜€

    Leslie Mann looks sexy and gorge in that dress (but then, I always LOVE a long-sleeved, covered up gown that would hold my girls in place), and Zooey, well, I don’t know what the hell is going on with her there head to toe-she has a nice figure, why drown it?-but whatever it it, hopefully it was just a moment of temporary insanity and she’ll come around soon…

  15. aud says:


    Leslie and Jennifer looked great πŸ™‚

  16. elkiddo says:

    I have to add that i think Zooey D needs to go away. She is always trying to do cutesy or kooky, it gets old and boring.

  17. megs283 says:

    I thought J Law’s dress is a bit too low (and I thought the same about her Dior, too, And Reese’s dress). Not because it’s showing too much, but because it looks like it’s falling down. I know it’s not…but a half-inch higher would fix that illusion.

    That said, she looks gorgeous. I’m only 30, but seeing her makes me think “ah, youth.”

    • TrustMeOnThis says:

      I totally agree, and it is also too long. If they took the straps up a bit they could solve both problems in about five minutes!

  18. Monie says:

    I see Leslie and I have the same problem; Sweaty Pititis. Leslie, use Certain Dry every few days and Degree Clinical Strength daily. I like the Classic Romance scent. πŸ™‚

    • Brittney says:

      I have this problem too and tried the same combo. It worked like a charm for the first week (I thought my lifelong problems were solved)… and then it got worse. What do I do now?! It’s like my body has antiperspirant-resistant superpowers.

      • Monie says:

        Yeah it isn’t 100% fool proof but it works for me most of the time. I’ve been thinking about Botoxing my pits; supposedly that helps. lol. But too scared to inject that stuff into my body. :-/

      • Certain-Dri PM roll-on works wonders!! Believe me, I will drip through a cotton blouse like a man! You put it on at night and shower, deodorant as usual in the morning. It closes your sweat glands, so apparently it’s not great to use too often, but I swear by it!!

  19. Samigirl says:

    J.Law should never wear anything other than CK. She’s stunning.

    • cmc says:

      I’ll second that!! The red CK was to die for…and this one is stunning. Her body is made for the way CK cuts their dresses.

    • Even though I loved her Oscars gown (it was such a statement and so, so pretty) I’m going to agree. Calvin Klein REALLY knows how to dress her body and she never seems to go wrong in his designs.

    • littlestar says:

      That was my first thought too! Lol. Calvin Klein is the perfect design house for her.

  20. phaksi says:

    Perfection! Love it! So much better than the white Dior

  21. Lisa says:

    Jennifer looks great, but I love Leslie Mann’s dress.

    • Ems says:

      Yeah! Why didn’t she sign onto represent CK instead of Dior? More $$? She fits the CK all-American image more than the Parisian Dior brand.

      Although am I the only one who can see her panties through this dress?

  22. ruby says:

    Jennifer and Leslie look amazing. This is how you do it KStew and Heidi Klum.

    By the way, will you cover the musical bits of the Oscars ? I haven’t found any videos yet, I was wondering if anyone had any links for us non-US readers.

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

    Leslie Mann looks the best here

    amy adams also at the same party

  24. maria says:

    I’m regretting my breakfast taco.

    She looks stunning.

  25. Another Ann says:

    Definitely think Jen should have worn the CK to the awards. Looks fab on her.

    Why is Zooey Deschanel? They keep trying to make her happen. She’s just a mess. That dress looks like something your great grandmother would wear to your wedding.

  26. LAgirl says:

    Jennifer Lawrence is absolutely stunning! What a fantastic year for such a fantastic girl. I hope she continues to challenge herself and not let Hollywood change her. I’m very happy for her!

  27. Maritza says:

    Zooey’s dress looks awful and by her face you could tell she hates it too. Jlaw’s dress is fabulous, Leslie and Rosie’s dresses are pretty and they look great.

  28. Jackson says:

    Yeah, I have a flaw with the dress – the bodice is too low. Not too low-cut, just too low overall on her chest. The color also for some reason doesn’t work on her but that could just be these pics. IDK, it’s just meh for me.

  29. Marianne says:

    Zooey didn’t get a haircut. Its just pinned to look like a bob. Freida Pinto did it as well at the Sags.

    I love this shimmery dress on JLaw though.

  30. Memphis says:

    Jennifer looked great here!

    Zooey, WTH were you thinking?

    Rosie has a supermodel figure but even she cant pull off a dress that ugly!

    Leslie looked pretty.

  31. Mirella says:

    Love J Law & Leslie
    Rosie & Zooey….not so much.

  32. bea says:

    JLaw looks fantastic in that dress and I don’t want to say anything negative, BUT….

    I hate the cut of the bust. The cups are way below her actual breasts. Sorry.

    Zoe D does not look like her usual cute self. Once again, a pale dress can make you look washed out NOT ethereal. That dress is just dragging her down and I hate the neckline.

  33. bluhare says:

    Not a fan of the colour of Leslie Mann’s dress, but she looks good in it.

    Andrew Gn is a god. I have some of his pieces and they are insanely well made and tailored.

  34. Shira says:

    I can’t even…
    this was so flawless and Jennifer should’ve worn that to the ceremony.

  35. Ayame says:

    I disagree about JLaw, I hate this dress. Especially the bust, which makes her breasts look very small (and makes her look pear shaped in consequence) and saggy. It looks like it needs to be tugged up an inch or two.

  36. Deb says:

    JLaw is absolute perfection

  37. lucy2 says:

    Jennifer looks amazing, great dress for her. Leslie looks great too.
    Zooey and Rosie’s dresses are terrible.

  38. Aria says:

    JLaw is perfection in this dress!!! She should wear CK all the time. Dior is not for her. I mean I loved her previous Oscar gown but she looked beautiful and yet generic like any another blonde actress. With this one she stands out!

    • Christina says:

      Absolutely. Like I said on another thread, Dior just seem to be snapping up every Oscar winner, without stopping to ask if they’re a good fit for the brand. And yet, I’ve never seen Jennifer look good in Dior – the style is just too high fashion and mature for her. CK would be a far better fit for her, in every sense of the word.

  39. littlestar says:

    Leslie Mann’s dress is beyond awful. The colour, the shape of it. UGH.

  40. Edgar says:

    I have no idea who Leslie Mann is, but she looks absolutely georgous. Beautiful dress!

  41. poppy says:

    how do you dress a lovely lady with an equally lovely figure that will probably win the best actress oscar and not fit the dress correctly? she did not grow 3 inches, nor did her boobs move up her chest.
    2-3 inches higher placement would have made that dress iconic for the right reasons. reminds me of goop’s ill fitting pink dress. except JLaw makes the ill fit of her dress tolerable. says more about her than the dress.
    the fit, ugh, totally phoned it in. smh.
    could have been beyond amazing, really truly iconic and unforgettable. that, not so much.

    can’t stand leslie mann but she looked great.

    they can keep trying to make rosie happen (looking at you stephen huvane) but it ain’t gonna happen.

    and huvane can try and keep valentino afloat but valentino has maybe 3 pieces a year that are notable/good. the rest looks like a senile wig wearing oompaloompa created it. oh wait…

  42. Dawn says:

    I think JL looks great here! Great dress, great body, good hair and decent makeup. She looks ready to party as she should. She looks fresh and NOT used up like some of them look.

  43. Porkchop says:

    Bedhead, are you or CB going to tell us the story behind Jennifer Lawrence flicking off someone/everyone in the press room?

  44. Jm says:

    Can we please address how horribly uncomfortable it was watching Renee Zellweger present?

    She was so busy sucking in her stomach while sticking out her fake boobs that she was falling over!

  45. TrustMeOnThis says:

    She is lucky she didn’t fall down again – that dress is two or three inches too long for her!

    Zoey and the lady in red have perfectly hemmed gowns. How these big stars can wear ridiculously expensive gowns and not freakin HEM them drives me nuts! You are not supposed to be standing in a puddle of fabric. Gah.

  46. Luxe says:

    Love it! Jennifer looks stunning here. The one flaw is definitely the cup size. It’s pulling her chest down. That said I love the fit, color, and material. Also, I kind of liked the ballgown!

  47. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    JLaw looks fab. Much, much better than the pink Dior.

  48. JC says:

    Leslie Mann looked SO GOOD! That dress fit her perfectly and her skin looked fresh and dewy.

  49. Vermilion812 says:

    J.Law looks stunning.

    If that is the crap Valentino was turning out for the evening, no wonder Anne Hathaway had to fall back to that unfortunate Prada number. I despised her pink gown, but maybe it was the least offensive of the two?

  50. Diana says:

    That dress would have been a knock out on the ceremony. Too bad it was just for the after party because J-Law looks hot!

  51. CC says:

    The CK is a great party dress, but the Dior is a great ceremony dress. I thought both choices were appropriate.

  52. MisJes says:

    Some people just love to scrap the bottom of the negativity barrel where Jennifer is concerned, aren’t they? There is practically NOTHING bad to be said about her at the Oscars.

    The low cut is a design feature of the dress – it would look the same on her bust as if it was an inch or two higher. To tighten the straps would ruin the look of the dress. And doesn’t need it.

    This is hands down the most stunning look of the night! CK really has been Jennifer’s best friend. I agree she should be dressed by CK, however to all the commenters that think she should have worn the silver gown instead of the Dior Haute Couture – she is contractually obligated to wear Dior’s gowns.

    In any case, the Dior was beautifully draped and fitted, elegant and timeless gown – EXACTLY what I would want if I were potentially picking up an Oscar!

  53. KellyinSeattle says:

    I personally don’t think Jennifer is “couture enough” to wear Dior.

  54. kitkerenina says:

    JLaw, wow! Brilliant white design. Like chalky mens’ hands couldn’t stop grabbing her, esp. the backside to play the bongos!

    Zooey. Mrs. Havisham Great Expectations, the cobwebby dress and cake combined. (With some

    • kitkerenina says:

      cont. above.

      with some chalky supermarket cake toppers thrown in. Why?)

      Rosie Huntington Who Cares. Only looked because thought Anna Nicole was back. But no, sadly. (Calling the dress Anna Nicole meh)

      Leslie! Gasping in delight! For the dress, and the cardigan I just bought in that color. (What Luck!)

  55. Bijlee says:

    Stunning! She looks great here! Perfect number of accessories and makeup and hair, just great! Ck all the way for JLaw. Glad this ish is all over now. I’m so tired of her honestly. Still like her though.

  56. d says:

    Jennifer Lawrence knocked it out of the ballpark last night. Everything was perfect and flawless: hair, makeup, dresses, jewelry. Good posture, nice smile, good attitude. It was really a job well done. CK and Dior are the perfect fashion choices for her.
    Some stylist or friends really hate Zooey because I can’t imagine why else she’d dress like that and do her hair like that. Or, she’s delusional. I’d say this is a perfect time to re-think her style and make some big changes, eithr in terms who she allows to style her or figures it out herself or something. Because that entire look is…unfortunate.

  57. dj says:

    JLaw looks so beautiful in this CK gown! I do kind of wish she could have worn this dress to the Oscars. Eventually she will learn what looks best and feels best on her. I have a feeling it is coming very soon after her trouble getting up the steps in the ballgown at the Oscars. It was very gallant of the 3 men who came to her aid too. Chivalry is not dead!

  58. Susi says:

    It seems like Calvin Klein is the only one who knows how to highlight her body properly. They should steal her away from Dior and she should just wear CK all the time!

  59. lisa2 says:

    I am going to toot my horn.. because I said the other day that she should wear Klein because it looks younger on her and more age appropriate.

    Glad she or someone took my advise. This is more like it. Way better then that Dior dress which I said was too much. There were at least 2 people helping her with that dress on the RC. then she tripped and I was like OK.. see.. listen to me next time girl.

    I love the look

  60. amy says:

    Zoey’s dress looked like a massive mothball, sorry but I find her quite annoying and arrogant, sorry love but your acting is the same in every thing I’ve ever seen you in.

  61. LMB says:

    Now that is a beautiful dress, instead of that awful bedspread she was wearing earlier. It may be Dior, but it was a dreadful, ugly thing. But this silver dress is wonderful.

  62. A Fan says:

    I think Rosie and Jason look alike in a strange sort of way…

  63. Dirty Martini says:

    Jennifer Lawrence is just breathtakingly beautiful here. That black dress is perfection.

    Almost enough for me to change teams. Except I’m too old for her or to change my colors anyway….

  64. Katie says:

    I LOVE the metallic dress! It’s not too flashy or too boring! Jennifer Lawrence looks great! πŸ˜€ Congrats to her!

    Zooey Deschanel’s dress looks like a 5 yr olds Easter dress! Make up is lovely though!

  65. luls says:

    Baby got BACK!

    I LOVE this chick, and Im so happy she won πŸ™‚ (Lawrence)

  66. Miss M says:


  67. EmmaV1 says:

    Did anyone else see J-Law flipping the middle finger?

    When K-Stew does it, apparently she’s the most horrible person in the world, but when Jen does it, she’s all “so cool and down to earth”

    Same with Emma Watson, who apparently has deferred college again…..and yet she’s supposed to be this perfect role model while Kristen is so terrible.

    Don’t get me wrong, Kristen deserves lots of criticism, but it’s annoying how Jen + Emma get off scotch free (plus Jen and Emma are friends or at least on good terms with Kristen)

    • Katie says:

      You’re comparing Jennifer Lawrence to Kristen Stewart? Seriously? -.-

      Jennifer is a lot more professional than Kristen! She, unlike Kristen, knows how to conduct herself in public! Kristen has her bitch face on 24/7!

      I’m sick of her “im too cool for this” attitude! If you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen!

  68. Jamies says:

    Yes I saw that. Very classless.
    I mean, Jennifer is a good actress but come on an Oscar for that? I was stunned by it really.
    When it comes to mataurity, she is not really. She is on the same level as Kristen Stewert.
    Emma might be a bit more mature since she goes to college but even her too.
    This was not Jennifer Lawrences time to win. I dunno why but it wasn’t. She has acted in better stuff before.
    I guess Ethan Hawkes was right when the Oscars reward medicores peformences and movies.

  69. Jenna says:

    Whatever they did with her makeup, they should keep doing it. I think she’s a gorgeous girl, but her face often looks a little too round/puffy. She seems to have more structure to her face here (without looking bony or starved). I like it!

  70. Az says:

    You are all missing the most interesting factor of Jennifer Lawrence’s award season wardrobe: this girl won for a performance in aWeinstein flick and managed to get away with not wearing Marchesa even once during the entire awards season.

  71. tmbg says:

    I want Jennifer Lawrence’s figure! It’s perfect and she looks great, IMO.

  72. Adrien says:

    Leslie Mann is sofa king gorgeous.

  73. salamanca says:

    JL-amazing. She has great figure.
    Statham and Whithly-OK.
    Leslie-not her color, but also OK.
    Zoey-why, oh why?

  74. Jordan says:

    Holy shit!…..Jennifer Lawrence is perfection in this dress. The photo of her looking over shoulder while holding her Oscar….well, I’d switch teams in a heartbeat. Incredibly beautiful, what a gorgeous figure, and so happy that Lawrence won. It caps off an amazing year for her.

  75. Nicolette says:

    Absolutely love JLaw’s dress, it’s gorgeous. She should have had this one on to begin with, what were her stylists thinking? Leslie looks perfect, and Zoe’s dress is too matronly for her.
