I breathed a sigh of relief when Jennifer Lawrence did not win at last night’s SAGs. She was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress but lost to Lupita Nyong’o. This is marvelous news for those of us who fear JLaw is heading into overexposure backlash. The internet can be an awfully cruel beast, and I think JLaw is carefully toeing the line as far as her image goes. The good thing is that she knows how to disappear from the public eye, but skipping the SAGs would have been a bad move. She did look a little wasted at one point during the evening. More on that in a moment.
Let’s talk about this dress, which hopefully will not inspire as many parodies and giggles as her SAGs gown. Jennifer is wearing Dior Couture, of course. I love the sleek and flattering silhouette and the glossy, sequinned fabric but am not crazy about the multicolor sequins. What is going on with Dior these days? The fashion house would never dress Marion Cotillard this way. This isn’t the worst we’ve seen from Dior on JLaw, but it could have been so much better. Also, Dior loves to smoosh Jennifer’s rack. Shame on them.
Jennifer went minimal with accessories and makeup, which was a wise choice. Her only jewelry was a pair of geometric Jennifer Meyer earrings and a few tiny rings. Smokey eyes topped off the haircut that she pulls off so well.
JLaw did collect a trophy as part of the American Hustle cast. I’m pretty sure she took a shot before hitting the press room.
Katrina Bowden wore black-and-gold Badgley Mischka, and this is an amazing dress on her. I haven’t ever been wowed by Katrina on the red carpet, but girlfriend hit a home run here. She scored a rare flat-ironed hair win too.
