Jennifer Lawrence in metallic Versace at UK ‘mother!’ premiere: stunning or meh?

UK Premiere of Mother!

This was me, looking through these photos of Jennifer Lawrence at the London premiere of “mother!”: “Wow, that’s a different look for her, is it possible that Dior finally did right by their golden girl?” This was me, discovering that the designer ID of the dress: “Oh, of course I like it. IT’S NOT DIOR. It’s Versace.” I don’t know if Dior refused to send J-Law a dress for the London premiere or if she simply felt like wearing something other than a “princess dress,” but I’m so glad she changed it up. This Versace looks like something Jennifer Lopez would wear or has already worn, and I mean that as a compliment: at this point in her life, J-Law needs to start leaving those tulle skirts and Cinderella-looking Dior gowns by the wayside. Everyone needs a little J.Lo in their lives.

Jen told Empire Magazine that she threw the script for “mother!” across the room when she first read it and texted Darren Aronosky, “There is something seriously wrong with you.” The next day, she texted him again: “By the way, it’s a masterpiece.” She says now that, “There was a full 24 hours where everybody thought I had turned it down in a really huge way. But it was like reading poetry or scripture, or Darren’s diaries: excerpts from a f***ed-up mind.” Jen also gave an interview to a British TV show which aired last night. Here’s a clip where Jen talks about pay discrimination and fear of women:

Here’s a clip where she talks about all of the sh-t going down in America. The way she says “I think I know exactly what he is” about Trump is exquisite. Just say it, J-Law. Call him a white supremacist a–hole fascist.

Jennifer’s lovah Darren Aronofsky obviously attended the premiere too. They only posed together briefly, and they used Domhnall Gleeson as a buffer. Now that is someone I would love to see with J-Law! I could see her with a ginger dude too.

    Although I’m not a fan of so much sheerness, she looks stunning from head to toe.

    • Shambles says:

      Yeah, I’m not usually a fan of the sheer thing either. But somehow, I think this is sheer done right. The chains make it a little more edgy, and that works. She looks SO good. Gorgeous & sexy.

    • Embee says:

      I agree! And I love that she appears to have put on some muscle – it’s a great look on her! She didn’t do “twee” and “princess” comfortably but this look suits her!

    • Anna says:

      I don’t think the sheerness is that bad since this is something so different than we’re used to seeing on her. I’m not a fan of hers in general but I think she looks amazing.

      I wish she had pointed out that the wage gap she keeps referencing is between white/Asian men and white women.

      • Shirleygail says:

        Anna, it seems to me there are a number of wage gap gaps. The interviewer asked specifically about men/woman pay gaps. I do know that at one point in my career I discovered quite accidentally that I (short, plumb, glasses wearing, widowed white woman with one child) was earning less base salary than a fellow who had recently been hired (my base was $18,000 per year plus 10% commission on sales, his base was 21,000 per year plus 10% commission). I had over a decade of experience in the industry. He had six months. When I complained, I was told yeah, but look at what you are making in commissions….the company felt they did no wrong by paying a man a higher base salary than they were paying me. I disagreed vehemently. In sales, I discovered I disagreed with the company’s values, morals and principles regularly, and departed shortly thereafter. The truth is, pay equity issues only got resolved in my world once I was the boss of my own company, free to determine who gets paid what. I pay my employees above minimum wage. We reach to provide “living wages” but my industry isn’t quite there yet, so neither is the profit big enough yet. Staff and suppliers are paid first, as it should be. I get the gleanings after everyone else, including the taxman…though to put food on the table, sometimes I’m a little late paying all the taxes!

    • Audi says:

      Agreed. Gorgeous dress, styling, hair & makeup. Total Win!

    • lucy2 says:

      Me too – I usually loath sheer gowns, but that is stunning on her.

    • WeAreAllMadeOfStars says:

      Yes. I’ve never understood the people who thought that she was beautiful or model material, but for the first time ever, I see it.

    • Janetdr says:

      Me too, I hate the see through look, but she looks wonderful!

  2. different day says:

    If the hair was -a little less suburban- this would have read “museum piece” rather than “cheesy starlet”.

  3. Veronica says:

    I thought she looked pretty good – though I do think her MUA went a little overboard with the contouring. But this is a rare example of the sheer trend being rather captivating to me. It’s daring but still rather intricate.

  4. Elle says:

    That look is tainted by the Kardashians.

    • Marr says:

      Co-sign. I want to like it because it’s above average as far as bodycon sheer goes, but I keep flashing back to every other look the Kardashians have done and I just can’t.

      I am SO here for Domhnall and his strawberry blond pornstache though. I’m still on the fence about watching mother!, but I might just do it for him.

  5. Nicole says:

    I mean it’s a different look but the styling just ruins it. The heavy eye makeup again and the horrible hair just kills the entire look.
    And yes the movie is f’ed up but whatever floats your boat. Michelle, Jen and Javier all admitted they signed on without the script.

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    I didn’t know Domhnall Gleeson was in this. I’ve missed him.

  7. Karen says:

    I think if you say “could be something out of j.lo’s closet” its not fashionable. She’s a stunning woman but hasn’t changed her look in 20 years. It’s a been there, done that, dress.

  8. HelloSunshine says:

    Honestly just here to stare at Domhnall Gleeson. He’s so handsome! 😍

  9. lightpurple says:

    Is Domhnall in this? Is Domhnall in everything? I might need to see it for Domhnall.

  10. rachel says:

    I think statuesque is better than lovely for her.

  11. poop says:

    She looks stunning and that tan glow is perfect. She looks statuesque.

  12. Darla says:

    What’s wrong with her hair? I think she looks amazing.

  13. detritus says:

    She looks like she’s hiding being exhausted.
    Dress is glam, body is banging, and she says good words. No quibbles.

  14. rachel says:

    Is it me or she sounds diferent in those interviews? Her accent I think.

  15. Kitten says:

    The dress looks great on her but I don’t know…I just don’t see “stunning” or “gorgeous” when I look at her. To me, she’s very pretty, but in an ordinary girl-next-door kind of way.

  16. Becks says:

    I think she looks great. Love the dress.

  17. Amide says:

    I usually am meh on her looks, but she brought it here.👍

  18. Pandy says:

    She poses like JLo – the open mouth sexy pose.

  19. nicegirl says:

    I am scared to see this !mother! movie. Not sure about it yet. Rosemary’s Baby freaked me out for years.

  20. STRIPE says:

    Well their marketing/PR leading up to the release is working wonders on me. I am so curious about this film!

    Jen looks gorgeous here, she needs to run far away from Dior asap!

  21. Ankhel says:

    Revenge of the Bride of the Spider Woman.

  22. Lori says:

    Love this dress! And its a nice and welcome
    change. Love Jlaw too, and I’m glad to hear her thoughts on politics right now.

  23. Originaltessa says:

    Sexy. Her body is sick.

  24. tealily says:

    Cosign on a Jennifer/Domhnall romance. They would be great together! I bet she ends up with someone more like him.

  25. huckle says:

    Love this dress and she is gorgeous and has a terrific figure. Perhaps I’m the odd one here, but her smile does not touch her eyes and it kind of bothers me. If her smile is genuine, she should be smiling with her whole face not just her mouth. Smizing as Tyra Banks would say.

  26. Bliss 51 says:

    I can’t take my eyes off her face in the tv interview. This is the thing now with a face that is waxy or buffed or polished or glossy. Am I wrong to think she’s way too young to look like that? Don’t mind me, I’m an old. I came across a spoiler for mother! and I’ll wait for it on HBO or netflix. I’ve seen some of Aronofsky’s movies, memorably, Requiem for a Dream. He offers the macabre and twisted and there’s enough of that in this world. I prefer the iciness of a Michael Haneke movie. I recommend The White Ribbon and Cache.

    • manta says:

      It’s horrible to the point I lost focus on what she was saying. All I saw was waxy, immobile forehead. I wondered how her face could look as smooth on video as on retouched pictures of her Dior ads.

    • Aren says:

      I also thought she looked strange, but I thought it was just the shiny make up mixed with an unusually puffy face.

    • JulP says:

      That was bugging me too. And I know she’s always had bigger cheeks, but in the pics where she’s smiling there’s a weird crease on the side that doesn’t appear natural, so I’m wondering if she’s had fillers too? I really hope not because she is wayyy too young for all that …

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Hey Bliss51, Michael Haneke’s latest film “Happy End” is Austria’s contribution to the foreign language Oscar 2018. It’s set in Calais and deals with the migration crisis in Europe. I need to be in the right mind-set to actually see it because the images in Haneke’s films have a tendency to merciless burn themselves in my brain. I still vividly remember some scene from Caché although I saw it only once years ago. And don’t get me started on the Piano Teacher.

      Here is the IMDB link to Happy End:

    • Jaded says:

      I don’t think she’s had fillers or botox – what happens in these interviews is that they use a special filter on the camera (called, ironically, a “pretty” filter) that makes your skin look flawless and glowing. Oprah started using it many years ago – on camera her skin looks perfect but I’ve seen her in real life, close up, and man her skin is NOTHING like it appears when she’s doing an interview.

    • Miss M says:

      Phew! I thought I was the only one that wss thinking her face looked different in the interview… To the point, I thought she was pregnant. :)

  27. Chinoiserie says:

    What is wrong with “princess” looks he had? You don’t have to aim for sexy either all the time, beautiful and interesting things too.

  28. Twink says:

    “Everyone needs a little J.Lo in their lives” Truer words have never been written. I live this look on JLaw.

  29. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    She looks amazing! So nice not to see her in one of those awful Dior “creations.”

  30. KiddVicious says:

    Classic Versace, I love it.

    Jen is looking a bit like Ivanka in a few of those screen shots. Or I should say, Ivanka must have taken a photo of Jen to her plastic surgeon and said “make me look like this”.

  31. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Open mouth AHgain. The seemingly sexy mouth agape drives me insane lol.

  32. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    God, I hate these diaphanous/ illusion dresses.

  33. Alix says:

    I gotta side-eye any movie whose title includes an exclamation point.

  34. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    How is Domhnall pulling off this creepy moustache? Most men would look like pervy uncle Frank with this thing on their faces, but he somehow looks elegant and handsome. Now I wonder if he could pull of a goatee (no one can in my book)?

    More Domhnall Gleeson, please!

  35. eeeeetrainnnn says:

    She is killing it lately…a beauty who has never looked better. Kudos to her mua, who I believe is Jillian Dempsey?

  36. Annetommy says:

    Aronovsky must have hidden charms to attract the beautiful Rachael Weitz and Jen. It’s certainly not obvious.

  37. I Choose Me says:

    Her body is fantastic is all I got. Really enviable figure. The dress shows it off well.

  38. Sarah B says:

    I 100% wish she were with Domhnall Gleeson.
