Jennifer Lawrence wears Dior & McQueen in Madrid: which look is cooler?

Jennifer Lawrence

Catching Fire‘s whirlwind tour of Europe continues after hitting London and Berlin already this week. Here’s Jennifer Lawrence with leading men Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. The men look great, and JLaw is holding her own.

Jennifer is wearing Dior of course. The navy-blue color of this gown reminds me (if only for a moment) or the tiered dress she wore at the SAGs, but the cut is all different here. This bustier dress is from Dior’s resort collection and is more casual with an asymmetrical sheer skirt. It’s a flattering fun dress but also enough for an important red carpet. The spiked black sandals are also pretty cool. Let’s go in for a JLaw close-up. Her new short hair is more diverse than I would have imagined, and whoever is styling her had a great time of mussing up the front to match the feel of the dress.

Before I get to the rest of the fashion, I want to make a quick diversion to mention that Lorde’s cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” appears on this movie’s soundtrack. You can listen to the song here. I also needed (yes … needed) to embed this awesome junket video. Highlights include a very baked Woody Harrelson. At about 3:45, you can see the look of recognition on his face when he figures out that Liam is Chris Hemsworth’s brother. I also love Elizabeth Banks’ dress for this junket, and Lenny Kravitz is so cool with his everpresent shades.

Mr. Kravitz appeared on The Ellen Show a few days ago. Ellen tried to set my man up with Carmen Electra! You can see a video clip here, and yes Lenny wore his pimp glasses for the entire segment.

Okay back to fashion. Here’s Meta Golding, who plays the razor-toothed Enobaria, in Loewe. The back of the dress is much more interesting than the front.

Here’s Jennifer and the boys earlier yesterday at the Madrid photocall. JLaw is wearing Alexander McQueen. Really. McQueen is usually much better than this unflattering “dress.”

    She must regret that haircut.

    • Melody says:

      She seems to be having fun with it – and she is not the typical sleek-haired clone movie starlet. I don’t think she’s regretting it at all.

    • Amory says:

      I think she looks fresh and young – always nice to see someone without extensions, and without the typical high maintenance hair. She’s young and having fun, and probably realizes that it’s hair – it grows.

      • mimi says:

        I like it too. She looks cute and fresh-faced. I’m so over every young starlet these days with extra long extensions. Jennifer has a pretty face and now with the shorter hair, we get to see more of it.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      I regret that hair color!

    • Mayday says:

      I like it MUCH better in the header photo – the messy, no effort look quits her. Short hair is tricky cause it looks VERY overstyled VERY fast, which makes her look like a news reporter.

      Could be worse wither way tho.

  2. Gossy says:

    I never realized Jennifer is so tall (5’10). She has a gorgeous figure and that blue dress really does it for her.

    • LadySlippers says:

      I’ve read she’s 5’8″ish, not 5’10”. Josh also stated w/o heels she’s only a tad taller than him….

  3. T.fanty says:

    The Woody Harrelson clip was the Internet’s raison d’être. I love him forever.

  4. JudyK says:

    I like her hair…she’s a pretty girl.

  5. Dani2 says:

    These two looks are more age-appropriate so I like that aspect of it, I’m still of two minds about this hair though.

    And LOL at Woody not knowing who Liam’s brother is, that’s practically his claim to fame!

    • Esmom says:

      I got the feeling he knows they’re brothers and was just joking around. I’m sure they need to find ways to amuse themselves throughout these things, talking about the same thing over and over again.

  6. Easi says:

    I think her hair is great. I don’t think it looks any different than Michelle Williams. She’s having fun with it. I’m sick to death of every girl having long wavy extentions.

    • LadyMTL says:

      Me too! Although I’m not nuts about the haircut (depending on how it’s styled it can look Kate Gosselin-y) I am surprised at how people seem to think she’s “ruined her looks” or whatnot. I prefer this to long, fake extensions any day of the week.

  7. QQ says:

    Im so so so so obsessed with her hair GOD SHE IS STUNNING… And this is a face for short hair *ahem miley*

    • MisJes says:

      I completely agree, QQ. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked the cut, but it’s really grown on me. I absolutely LOVE it!

    • Esmom says:

      Agree, she looks stunning. Some people were saying she should go shorter but I think the length gives it more versatility.

  8. akivasha says:

    OMG! Yes the Harrelson part is totally wroth the watch.
    Man that guy is TOTALLY BAKED! LOL

  9. eliza says:

    I can’t stop looking at her awful haircut to notice the outfits.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I loved the first dress…until I scrolled all the way down. I hate the sheer trend!

    • LadySlippers says:

      To me, sheer works only in moderation. And it’s overused and often not in moderation….

    • Amory says:

      My thought exactly. The dress is stunning up until the weird mesh crap – that dress did not need that embellishment.

  11. Simmie says:

    All I see here is how dashing Josh Hutcherson looks in his suit.

    • Lucy says:

      Don’t you just love that him and Jen matched their outfits? No idea if it was on purpose, but they look great next to each other in here (well, as per usual!).

    • MisJes says:

      He looks great , I agree. It’s a fantastic suit. And he is such a handsome guy! I am in LOVE with that jawline, completely in love.

  12. Kiddo says:

    If I had to select by “cooler”, I’d go McQueen, but the dress isn’t flattering on her. In the end, there are elements of both dresses that I like, but I feel that, ultimately, they both kind of fail.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      That McQueen dress looks like something KimK would try to wear.

    • chaser says:

      I agree.

      JL has broad shoulders so anything cap sleeved wont sit right and will look like its too small and that her arms are just hanging out awkwardly. Which is exactly what is happening with the McQueen, which is a shame because the idea of the dress is just fab.

  13. Lucy says:

    I think everyone looked great, both at the photocall and at the red carpet. I’m obsessed with Jen’s messy hair! Liam got himself a much nicer suit, thank God. And Josh is perfect to me.

  14. MrsBPitt says:

    I’ll bet she is already regretting that haircut. I’ve cut my hair short a few times, thinking that a short do will be easier to manage and somehow, I spend a boatload of time trying to get the short cut to look good. I do realise that she has a hair stylist to do her hair for these events, but when she is not on the red carpet, it might end up being a pain in the neck!

  15. Harpreet says:

    Just realized, Liam looks like Gerard Pique, the soccer player from Spain, dating Shakira.

  16. MacScore says:

    Good grief, Jen L. has the most irritating “laugh” – like a dying battery-operated toy… shut up!!!
    Don’t need to see her midriff in the McQueen dress. Kim Trash tried that look earlier; didn’t work. And, finally, I think the video is the perfect raison d’etre for why actors should NOT be interviewed.
    Obviously I’m feeling very curmudgeonly today. Harrumph.

  17. sputnik says:

    i don’t understand this trend for sheer dresses or panels. it looks cheap and awful, like wearing some old tulle curtains.

  18. MisJes says:

    Why are some people so sure she’s regretting the cut? Why should she?

    I admit when I first saw it I wasn’t sure if I did like it, but it’s really grown on me. It does look amazing, and it’s so versatile – I’ve seen it styled differently on every red carpet this week and loved each one.

    On a side note, her make-up is always flawless. I wish I could do my eye make-up half as well Jennifer’s are done. Gorgeous skin, too.

  19. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Why do all these Dior sheers look so cheap?

  20. Jh says:

    Both dresses are rocking my world. She is so pretty I can forgive the hair situation.

  21. jk says:

    I can’t get past the hair either, I’m sorry…want to like it but…

  22. mk says:

    Keeping it messy is probably the key to wearing this hair, for her. Michelle Williams could wear hers sleek and still look her age, but not JLaw.

  23. nadia says:

    The McQueen outfit is awesome for a more casual photo call. I like her hair too. I detest that Dior dress, hideous. I didn’t like the tiered blue one she wore at the Golden Globes either. The straight neckline and the unstructured waist do nothing for her banging figure. . I’m also just not sure Dior is the right look for her–not enough edge and it ages her. Then again, there are some awesome looks they put out that she’s just not wearing. I don’t get it.

  24. nadia says:

    double post, whoops

    • Lucy says:

      I’m sure she’ll get there eventually, she’s young and has a lot of time to figure out her style… at the same time, she isn’t really this big “Fashion Girl”, and to be fair to her, she’s been in the spolight for a relatively short time. You can tell she’s still struggling and trying to get more comfortable with it. I do agree with you, though. She could wear the hell out of some great outfits!

  25. PunkyMomma says:

    Yes on McQueen, no on Dior.

  26. MonicaQ says:

    Meta Golding dress looks like Fran’s armor from Final Fantasy XII…just covering more. The pattern is cool.

    • KCO says:

      OMG!! This comment just made my day!!! Thank you, MonicaQ!

      Side note, that Lorde cover is pretty amazing. I LOVE it.

  27. Dawn says:

    I really like her because I think she captures the fun that should be had when one is young and successful. I love her look in that blue dress, again young and fresh. But I still don’t like the hair. I wish her a long and successful career if that’s what she wants as she matures. I see nothing to snark about with this one!

  28. Thinker says:

    I really like, but I really think this hair is awful. It just goes to show, not every face can pull off the pixie… Her jawline is not strong enough for this choppy short look…

    Also: holy sun damage on her chest!!! She needs to start putting sunscreen there, it’s not going to age well.

    • Belle says:

      Not sure about the sun damage… looks to me like she just has a lot of moles.

    • Brigitte says:

      yeah, it’s moles. I have sun damage on my chest from the halcyon ‘Hawaiian Tropic Oil And No Sunscreen’ days of the 70’s, and it is an all over darkening/splotchy thang.

  29. shellybean says:

    She looks so great in the McQueen. That Dior dress is awful and cheap looking.

  30. Quinn Parker says:

    Love her hair styled like this- WAY cute.

    The blue is a great color on her.

    That crap Dior has been churning out, however…terrible.

  31. Kate says:

    I fell asleep looking at photos of this dull, ordinary girl, and one of my colleagues had to nudge me awake.

  32. Grant says:

    Good God, I want to ravage Liam. He usually does nothing for my man-biscuit but this junket, he’s been sending said man-biscuit into tingly overdrive. TMI? My condolences.

    I actually think JLaw looks worlds better in the McQueen dress. Hate her hair (and the Dior) in the first pic.

  33. Anna says:

    Terrible haircut! First styling I can’t stop thinking of Cameron Diaz in “There’s Something About Mary”, and the second just looks stringy and ugh. And the dresses! Awful. Sheer skirts are always cheap looking and the second dress is way too tight. She killed it on the first movie’s promo tour. What is happening?!

  34. Alexa says:

    I’ve never seen her movies or t.v. or heard her voice, but by visuals alone: CAPTIVATING! But it’s the haircut that has really won me over. Before – ya, she’s pretty – just like Megan Fox is pretty. Like – HOORAY for her – she can know that all men are fantasizing about her. (That last line was meant sarcastically, in case anyone is wondering.) Now I know that she’s more than the typical Hollywood star who makes male arousal her main priority. If I could look like any star for a day, it’d be her or someone like her. Ya know?

  35. the other Kate says:

    I’ve watched this video and all I can say is that I LOVE Woody.

  36. Meggin says:

    I like the McQueen dress a lot better than the Dior dress. Not a fan of that Dior dress at ALL. It’s hideous. I like her hair though. She’s working it.

  37. Diane says:

    I think she is a terrific actress but she should not smile. Her smile looks so forced and insincere, which I’m sure it’s not. She looks 100% better without a smile or without showing her teeth.

  38. DesertPoppy says:

    I still hate Jens hair, I don’t think this cut will every grow on me. I hate all the sheer paneling it looks so tacky and trashy. I don’t like the bare mid-riffs either, I guess this means I am now old. *sigh* And grumpy.

  39. Megan says:

    I think both dresses are ugly…but not as ugly as that haircut. Yikes!

    I thought Jen was average looking to begin with, but she had great hair at least, but now it’s just a mess. You need razor sharp features to pull off the pixie cut, and she doesn’t have the face for it. She has a round, baby face with no defined chin, she should stick to long, full hair and curls.

    • SuSu says:

      you´re right about the face shape. She´s a cutie with a super round baby face. She just hasn´t the face of a grown woman. Such short hair styles suit only women with interesting angular faces. Round faced women like Jennifer were transformed into tomboys.

  40. loveisthecoal says:

    Dior and McQueen have both gone to hell in a handbasket. Yikes.

    I LOVE her hair in the top photos.

  41. Marianne says:

    I really like the second dress better. The first one looks really plain. And I don’t like that’s so straight across. Its not flattering for her cleavage. Plus in some shots, the sheer paneling made it look like her legs were weirdly wrinkly.

    The second one is interesting and shows off her curves better.

    Though I like her hair better in the first dress than the second one.

  42. Asdfg says:

    I actually like that Alexander McQueen dress! She wears it well! Kind of funky.

  43. Caroline says:

    Anyone knows who her stylist is?
    thanks in advance

    • MisJes says:

      Rachel Zoe. I don’t like some of the outfits Rachel has put her in lately, but I just saw pictures of Jennifer at the Rome Film Festival – and she NAILED it. The Dior gown is to die for and she has the BEST hair and make-up, just stunning!

  44. MegG says:

    I kind of like the haircut more here. I wish I could’ve pulled off this sort of haircut. But it just looks too masculine on me.
