Jennifer Lawrence debuted her emerald-cut engagement ring at the Dior show

Guests pose in the press room for the Christian Dior fashion show

Not even one full month ago, we learned that Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney had gotten engaged. I think the engagement leaked out organically, and Jennifer’s rep was quick to confirm. That was the first week of February. The only thing that’s happened since then is a few low-key dinner outings with Jennifer and Cooke, and it’s clear that they weren’t trying to flaunt their love or do some kind of engagement tour. Until now! Jennifer had to fly to Paris for the Dior show – she’s one of the biggest names repping Dior – and she brought Cooke with her. Well, not to the show. Jen left that bitch at the hotel while she collected her Dior coins. But they went out later, after the show.

These photos are of Jennifer at the Dior show – there was a little photocall for all of the Dior ladies, and of course photographers wanted to get a clear shot of her engagement ring, which she was wearing. Dior must have been thrilled that they got the exclusive engagement ring flash! Here’s a photo of her ring:

It’s a slim white-gold band/setting with a very clear emerald-cut diamond. Jewelry experts are already in a tizzy, and they think the stone is probably 4 or 5 carats. I would say 3 to 4 carats, but what do I know. I do know the stone is very good quality – no clouding, excellent clarity. Experts say it’s probably worth $60,000 to $100,000, which is probably about right. How did Cooke afford that? Maybe the rumors are true and he does come from big-time family money.

I’m also a little bit surprised that Jennifer was nowhere during this year’s awards season. True, she didn’t have any films out, but I would have expected her to at least be a presenter at the Oscars or something. I guess she’s just loved up in New York full time with Cooke now.

PS… I love this Dior dress they gave her for the runway show. SO CUTE.

    Very pretty ring.
    The dress is kind of cute, but she doesn’t look comfortable in it.

    • LORENA says:

      it looks like it should be longer

    • ZanB says:

      The dress looks at least one size too small. It literally flattens her boobage and is way too tight around her biceps! Also, the belt trying to cinch her waist is out of control!! I do like her mature looking make-up; hope she’s done with that precocious ingénue look.

      Love the ring! I like anything that sparkles…

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Yes, cute dress, but terrible fit! She’s so squeezed into it that it looks like something she wore when she first hit puberty and then just found again in the attic. Too bad, because it’s a fab dress. I would love to have it. But not in that shrink-fit sizing.

  2. xdanix says:

    This might be one of the best Dior looks I’ve seen her in. Certainly in a long while. She looks GREAT. (Though I am also aware that’s not always saying much, they have done her DIRTY a lot of the time.)

    I’m actually not surprised she didn’t show for awards season though. People go on about JLaw being everywhere all the time, but she actually does try to live a mostly low-key life away from Hollywood when she’s not working or promoting a movie.

  3. P says:

    I keep reading cookie monster. Cute dress.

  4. Slowsnow says:

    She’s a walking advertisement against dyeing your hair too much and too soon. It looks so frail now. She had wonderful hair!
    The dress is fine in a let’s revisit the 50’s kind of way.

  5. OriginalLala says:

    She looks so uncomfortable in those photos!

    aside – does anyone know how he pronounces his name? is it like Cook? or Coke? or Cookie? I’ve never met anyone with the name Cooke and Im genuinely wondering how its pronounced

    • Mia4s says:

      I assume it is “Cook”….but he’ll always be “Cookie” to me.

    • Erinn says:

      I’ve known one person casually and it’s just Cook. But it’s hard to say if that’s ‘right’. My husband doesn’t technically pronounce his last name ‘right’ because he says it a little more on the phonetic side because everyone is confused by it lol

    • lucy2 says:

      I read it as Coke for the longest time and kept thinking “what an odd name” but then realized it was Cooke. I assume the E is silent.

  6. Mia4s says:

    Didn’t give up the ring shot until it benefited your employer? Clever girl.

    I was a bit surprised she didn’t pop up during awards season because I imagine she has contractual obligations to promote that XMen Dark Phoenix movie (early word is it’s a bit of a disaster). In any event she will be on that press tour fairly soon so not a bad idea to go (relatively) quiet for awhile.

  7. hezzer19 says:

    Duchess Kate would kill for that dress! Only she’d add a dozen bedazzled buttons.

    Jennifer looks less than impressed.

  8. AnnaKist says:

    She needs a good haircut. The ring is nice.

    • billypilgrim says:

      Her hair looks awful!
      She sure doesn’t look happy and loved
      I love the emerald cut, but would want it set east to west.

      • Lady D says:

        I’ve never heard of diamonds or other stones being set based on directional headings. I’m going to re-examine my jewelry.

      • Erinn says:

        LadyD – it’s a newer trend, I think. It’s one that I love. I much prefer a princess cut set as a kite.

  9. Loretta says:

    She’s like a Barbie, stunning.
    I like her engagement ring, very classy.

  10. Lolly says:

    Her face looks off to me. I’m sick of the “unimpressed” look celebrities use now in photos. I’m sure it’s such a horror going to these things for you multi million dollar contract.

    • Eliza says:

      Yeah her face looks different. I’d totally believe this was a madame trousseau wax work, because it has that almost but not quite right quality.

    • Beth says:

      Her “Yeah, what do you want? I’m bored and want to leave now ” expression on her face are annoying. It usually Kristen Stewart with that dull expression. How hard is it to smile?

    • QueenB says:

      In the DM pictures she looks very waxy.

    • broodytrudy says:

      I think it’s the combination of the nose contouring and tragic eyebrows.

    • I agree!! says:

      Yes!! I’m thinking fresh botox and fillers. My face looked like that once after getting a quick touch up.

    • otaku fairy... says:

      In some other pictures from the event she just looks a little tired. Happens to everyone.

  11. TheHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    I would imagine they purchased the ring together, even if he picked it out and did the actual transaction.
    I’m a very practical person, so someone making a substantial financial investment or, heaven forbid, going into debt to purchase an engagement ring (as my friend’s husband did, and they have continued to operate like that to this day) is incredibly frustrating to me, and says that the size of the ring is more important than the love behind it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my diamond, but I would not want my husband to make a decision that is multiple months’ salary without my input, even before we got married.

    • Erinn says:

      We picked mine out together. Mine’s nothing fancy, we were fresh out of school and only making the kind of wages someone who is just entering a profession make. But everyone around me was getting white gold and a very specific style of ring, and it wasn’t my taste. They were beautiful rings, but I just wanted a yellow gold, cathedral solitaire. Simple. So we went to the jewelry store together and I tried on a few rings to see what I liked and he put one on hold so that he could go pick it up at a later time and still surprise me with the actual proposal. I think it’s becoming more and more common for people to choose together – and honestly, it’s just so much more practical!

  12. Maum says:

    Those shoes are hideous!
    They look like the pointy things they wore in Witches.

  13. Livethelifeaquatic says:

    Her terrible brows are throwing her entire face off.

  14. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Her ring is beautiful and the Dior dress looks about two inches too short on her. I like the cut of the dress but it’s a weird length – especially for a tall woman like Jennifer.

  15. meh says:

    the ring looks weird on her finger.
    like, it needs a bigger band?…idk.

    • maisie says:

      I think she needs a larger size for both rings on her hand. They’re too tight – make her fingers look like sausages.

  16. Nikki says:

    I wonder if celebs would have lab grown diamonds? That would be a responsible message to send out, plus you can’t tell. They are not like old cubic zirconias haha. Would be cheaper though so maybe they like spending the wealth.

  17. wisdomheaven says:

    I will never understand why those chose her as one of their brand ambassadors. She never looks comfortable or good in Dior nor does she really evoke the timeless elegance that I associate with Dior.

    Her make-up is well done here though and face-wise she looks pretty.

  18. minx says:

    I like the ring, I think the band should be slightly wider because the stone is so large.

  19. Sash says:

    I honestly think she looks the best she has in a while.

  20. Div says:

    She looks nice. I’m actually kind of surprised she hasn’t been filming anything—she hasn’t been on set for a while. Although I know she has that Bad Blood biopic coming out.

  21. Ladiabla says:

    The dress is pretty but too tight, and I agree that it needs to be longer. Her ring is pretty, it it immediately made me think of gwyneth’s engagement ring because of the emerald cut – (the one Chris gave her), though gp’s setting was prettier. I always loved that ring.

  22. Toniko says:

    That dress should be 2 inches below the knee length.

  23. Steff says:

    She always, ALWAYS, looks uncomfortable and out of place when she’s doing these high fashion events.

  24. Veronica S. says:

    It’s entirely possible she helped pay for it, too. I’ve known plenty of women who openly talked marriage with their partners and then aided in the up front financial investments.

    Cute dress. I actually like the shoes? It’s nice to see women allowed in something more practical for walking around. Somebody cinched the belt a little too tight to look comfortable, but otherwise it’s a great outfit.

  25. Manatee says:

    She definitely looks like a doll

  26. Tallia says:

    I’m so glad she took a break from the limelight, she was really becoming over saturated. Less is more sometimes.

  27. Pandy says:

    Her dress looks like a figure skating costume.

  28. Zee says:

    The dress looks like fancy soviet factory worker.

  29. Lena says:

    I love her ring. I am getting tired of the blue lively style everyone has been copying.

  30. Tai says:

    I like the ring but am I wrong in thinking her hands are sort of fat and puffy? Slender people like her generally have slender hands. You know whose hands I admire? Barbra Streisand! Her fingers are so long and slender and graceful. I got my dads hands 🙁

  31. Sarah says:

    She looks like she’s modeling for the old Flowers in the Attic paperback artwork for Cathy Dollenganger.

  32. Suz says:

    Didn’t flaunt it? They were set up in the front window of a restaurant while she sat so her ring was camera side and they did professional pap walks where she’s holding the crook of his arm just so so you can see the gaudy rock. Phony af.

    • Lex says:

      How dumb. It’s like accusing women of “flaunting baby bumps”
      (I hate that term by the way!). As if a pregnant woman is being a show off by existing.
      She is wearing a ring. People will see it. This doesn’t equal a FLAUNT you sad case
