Jennifer Lawrence looks like she can’t wait to get out of this fakakta Dior cotract


Dior’s show at Paris Fashion Week is one the hottest tickets of any fashion week in any city. Models, fashionistas and celebrities rearrange their schedules just to be available for the Dior show, and all of the faces of Dior are likely contractually obligated to show up at a few shows a year. Which is how Jennifer Lawrence – who has been undercover for MONTHS – deigned to appear at the Dior show on Friday. And when I say “deigned,” I mean… she looks completely over this. She didn’t want to be in Paris for the Dior show at all. I can see it on her face. And I don’t know if Dior chose Jennifer’s outfit or what, but Dior’s golden girl definitely got the worst ensemble. That might be why she’s so glum-looking too. “Oh, jean capris? Really? Okay, I guess… since I’m contractually obligated.”

And to think, I actually had high hopes for Dior’s new creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, who took over from Raf Simons this year. Simons was doing terrible things with the label. But judging from these clothes… um, Chiuri isn’t doing much better.


More photos from the show… Rihanna has a gift for making the stupidest clothes look amazing. This is one of those times. This dress would look like an absurd, ill-fitting costume on nearly anyone else. On Rihanna, it looks chic.


I’ve seen so many fashion sites acting like Marion Cotillard’s white sweater/dress is the second coming of Jesus. Really? It’s a pretty unflattering design. Granted, she’s pregnant and I bet this is really comfortable.


Karlie Kloss in one of the best skirts to come out of Dior in a long time.


Kate Moss is doing something different, right? I think she’s going for a more beachy blonde, whereas before she was more of a “bronde.” The jean jacket is… eh.


Diane Kruger looks like she just came from Lollapalooza. In 1995.


And finally, Natalie Portman was there too. Like Marion, she’s knocked up. Something in the water over there at Dior, maybe.

    All outfits are equaly terrible.

    • Rice says:

      x100000! Never seen so many fugly outfits at one event.

    • Poisonous Lookalike says:

      Several of them look like eight-year-old me’s attempt to style and sew “bespoke” clothes for my Barbie doll from my mom’s fabric scraps.

    • Chaine says:

      No, JLaws is the worst. What is with the crotch of the jeans??? Like I have never before wondered if JLaw had male parts.

      • qwerty says:

        I agree. Not about the crotch but srsly, hers is too meh to even call ugly. She’s never gonna be a fashion girl and it’s painfully obvious she’s doing it for (admittedly, crazy) money.

    • Pix says:

      I was thinking the same thing. These women are really beautiful and they all look like a dumpster.

  2. Katie says:

    Lol, that is exactly the look those jeans deserve.

    I loved Rhianna’s PUMA collection, it was like Yeezy if that line had any soul and joy put into it.

  3. EMc says:

    maybe she’s pissed because the tips of her shoes are all scuffed up.. Or is that “the look”..?

  4. Erinn says:

    Why… why are they all dressed terribly? JLaw at least has a half-way sensible outfit – but it’s not something fancy or different at all – but most of the rest? Holy hell, it’s actually terrible. It’s like a prank.

    • Tris says:

      I know – it’s odd. So slobby. Guess it’s part of the zeitgeist – everything going downhill (or maybe it’s just a grand equalizing, a democratization?) – politics, music, discourse, fashion.

      • PimmsCupInAPimpCup says:

        The jean number with Elvises (Elvi?) on the is reminiscent of Cincinnati, 1980’s, where I totally screwed up a pair of jeans, so pen and inked monsters all over them. (I worked in a costume shop) teen boys in the neighborhood wanted the same thing, but they had no money, so I switched out the pay for cleaning up the neighborhood.
        There was an army of street cleaners in jeans the like of which Moss is wearing, and she doesn’t even know it, and I find that amusing.

  5. QQ says:

    All of it kinda Fail-ly? anyways Rihanna’s Formal Short Toga was striking up close cause the little embroidered bugs are kinda amazing

    Marion Shoes are the only salvageable Item here, which is hilarious considering all these clothes could Buy my Life twice over LOL

    • detritus says:

      Marions shoe are good, Jlaw’s might be, but I can’t see the side. Karlie’s coat is lovely.

      Everything else is dumpy and horrible, except Rihanna who is immaculate in everything and I refuse to believe otherwise.

      Marion’s pregnant so she’d probably be the easiest to roll. I’m gonna steal her sweater, sell said sweater to Kruger as a dress, and then use the proceeds to buy a j to smoke with JLaw (she’d totally rather be doing that – look at her) and my wardrobe for a year.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    Kaiser, fakakta has long been one of my favorite words ( all credit to the Blues Brothers, where I first heard it) but I never knew how it was spelled. Thank you!

    • Susan says:

      Except that’s not really the right spelling. It’s a Yiddish word and “verkakte” is the normally accepted spelling. Or something closer to that would be acceptable. But “fakakta” is distinctly un-Yiddish looking.

  7. Pandy says:

    Natalie Portman looks contractually oblufated to be there as well.

  8. PunkyMomma says:

    You’re right – the skirt is amaze balls. But that’s about it. Both Dior and Chanel have become mediocre.

  9. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    I think Rihanna can “save” all outfits. Seriously !!

  10. Shambles says:

    But Gahd Damn that woman is gorgeous though. Face-wise, JLaw looks freaking amazing.

  11. Mindrew says:

    Sum it up in just one word… Underwhelming.

    Bleah… It all looks just plain ‘meh’

    • Dan Lopez says:

      100%. Would any of y’all think I was an a$$hole if I admitted that I find karlie very ‘meh’. I mean she’s no Martha Hunt right! (#neitherami)

      • teacakes says:

        The difference is that Martha Hunt will never be good for much more than lingerie/swimwear (aka spank banks by any other name), while Karlie actually pulls off high fashion shoots .

        mind you, I don’t think Karlie is pretty either but she has the poise and confidence to make it work, and she actually became a top model off her walk and posing, not her instagram follower count.

  12. QQ says:

    …Also: How High/drunk/is Kate Moss??

    • swak says:

      My thoughts exactly. All pictures that I see of her seem to look like she’s on something. Maybe it’s just her trying to put a look out there and it’s not working.

    • Veronica says:

      I feel like all the drugs and partying hit her fast and hard in the last five years or so.

  13. greenmonster says:

    All of them look terrible. Imagine a conversationlike this:

    “Damn, your outfit is bad.”
    “But it is Dior.”
    “So you paid a lot for looking this bad!?”
    “Your outfit is already screaming at me, you don’t have to.”

    • mazzie says:

      Jennifer’s outfit is solid proof that wearing designer doesn’t make you stylish. (Generally speaking. JLaw has to wear Dior because contract.)

    • Sigh... says:

      Read this whole exchange in Eddy’s and Saffy’s voices from Ab Fab. 😁
      It’s Dior, dahling. DI-ORRRRR. 😤

    • I Choose Me says:

      LMAO. I lost it at “Your outfit is already screaming at me, you don’t have to.”

  14. Skyblue says:

    I can’t stop laughing at Kate’s faded denim shirt. So 1989!!!! I swear I wore that exact shirt but mine was self-decorated using “puffy paint”. A friend finally staged a fashion intervention and took it away from before 1991 was ushered in.

  15. Zuzus Girl says:

    Awful clothes. Lawrence actually looks like she doesn’t feel well. Maybe she was under the weather but had to show up because, contract. Who knows?

  16. Kate says:

    Jennifer’s make up is sublime. Love. It.

    • detritus says:

      It’s impeccable here.

      If I tried to find it on youtube, 12 different makeup artists would be telling me it’s their ‘day look’ even though it probably takes a solid 45 minutes to apply.

  17. tealily says:

    Oof, these outfits all look terrible and everyone involved looks like they know it.

  18. ell says:

    this is the first dior collection i’ve liked in years, it was really good! maria grazia chiuri used to be at valentino and always did great work.

    • alexc says:

      Her partner’s new collection over at Valentino is gorgeous.

    • Bridget says:

      Is this really going to be much of her vision for Dior, though? Designers work seasons ahead of time, so while the show aesthetic and some details would be Chiuri’s, wouldn’t a great deal of this still be Simmons’ designs?

      • ell says:

        for the last year or so it was a team of designers at dior, and what they did didn’t look much like simmons’, so i’m assuming he’s been done for a while. this last dior though had a real valentino vibe, maybe that’s not her vision entirely but it’s certainly different. i think she’ll do well, even alessandro michele at gucci took a couple of seasons to find his footing, and look where they are now.

      • Bridget says:

        I have this vision of her looking at what was produced for the show and scrapping it, hence the floaty skirts and t-shirts 🙂

        Who’d have thought that Raf Simmons would be the epic flame-out while Hedi Slimane has been killing it at Saint Laurent?

  19. Bread and Circuses says:

    Some of the women manage to look nice anyway, but yeah, none of these outfits are good.

  20. Chinoiserie says:

    I think everyone there seems pretty miserable.

  21. Minxx says:

    Marion looks sublime – she’s got the best legs and knows how to show them in a tasteful way. Jennifer looks like she doesn’t give a **, Kate Moss – I have no words. Natalie – boring as hell. Dior has been so awful lately, I only like their bags.

  22. Bridget says:

    If the personnel change at Dior only happened earlier this year, we’re still going to be seeing the fruits of Simmons designs here and probably the next season – fashion works seasons ahead of time in order to get everything properly sourced, made, and fitted. Remember how long it took people to realize Donnatella Versace wasn’t very good? It’s because she was cycling through the last of Gianni’s work for her first seasons.

  23. NeoCleo says:

    There is nothing “chic” about the ensemble Rihanna’s wearing. She’s gob-smackingly gorgeous in spite of what she wears. Nothing could elevate that.

  24. lucy2 says:

    These all look terrible, but Rihanna does elevate bad or strange fashion.

    JLaw needs to get hired by Calvin Klein after her Dior contract is up. She always looks great in CK.

  25. Cee says:

    When did Chiuri leave Valentino? I loved whay her and Piccioli were doing for that label.

  26. Timbuktu says:

    I literally laughed out loud when I saw JLaw’s outfit. And I’m NOT a fashionista by any stretch of imagination. I’d consider that horrible on a junkie at a gas station, let alone on a movie star at a Dior show in Paris. Wow, just wow. Maybe it’s actually a good thing I’m not a fashionista?

    I will never understand how Kate Moss is a super-model. On my scale, I’d say she’s less good-looking than an average woman.

  27. Art says:


  28. Giddy says:

    JLaw, Kate Moss, and Diane Krueger all look like they had to get dressed out of the lost and found. I didn’t say Goodwill because they could have found way better outfits there.

  29. d says:

    TERRIBLE. Every.Single.One.

  30. Naddie says:

    Man, I loved Kate’s jacket. Apparently I’m the only one, including herself.

  31. Abbess Tansy says:

    What is up with the dropped crotch look in pants? Make room for Depends?? Very unflatttering.

  32. teacakes says:

    Karlie got the best outfit of the lot. I also like Kate’s, in a sense of ‘I’d wear that’. Rihanna is only saved by her own gorgeousness tbqh.

  33. Veronica says:

    I’d have done the jeans without a boyfriend cut, but this is actually the most “her” we’ve seen Dior dress her. More casual than overdressed.

  34. LeAnn Stinks says:

    Did Jennifer Lawrence have her nose tweaked again? It sure looks like it to me.

  35. Christianna says:

    She looks like Katherine Heigl there.

  36. Apples says:

    Where’s the picture of the guest of honor, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie? Just because of her this event is worth talking about.
