Jennifer Lawrence stepped out at the Dior show for her first ‘event’ in nearly two years

Front Row - Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2021/2022

Jennifer Lawrence did her first “event” in nearly two years yesterday. Yes, it really has been that long! The last time she appeared on a red carpet for a premiere was June 2019, for the Dark Phoenix premiere. The last time she appeared at a fashion event was September 2019, for the Paris Fashion Week runway for Dior. J-Law has had her Dior contract for God knows how long – easily since 2013/14, I believe. The Dior shows are pretty much the only fashion-week event she attends, and I’m positive she’s contractually obligated to attend as many runway shows as possible.

Jennifer seemed to be enjoying herself at the show, and she chatted with Dior chairman and CEO Pietro Beccari and met backstage with Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. Jen is obviously wearing head-to-toe Dior, and I would imagine that her look was probably chosen for her and styled by the Dior team. They made her look great, honestly. Jennifer looks well-rested and happy.

Has absence made the heart grow fonder for the public and J-Law? I still enjoy the fact that she was the biggest young actress in Hollywood and she stepped away to really take a real break. She got married to Cooke Maroney, she spent time with friends and family, she traveled and she kept out of the press for the most part. We will be getting some J-Law later this year with Don’t Look Up. She also wrapped on Red, White and Water, which will come out next year. She’s still got to film Bad Blood, the Elizabeth Holmes/Theranos story and she has other stuff in development.

    …I have to say I haven’t missed her a bit. I think her talent and “quirky” personality is quite overhyped and I feel like I’m not alone in feeling that way.

    • Katherine says:

      You are not alone

    • Jezz says:

      Same!!

      I’m only commenting because I miss gossip generally!!

    • milliemollie says:

      I totally agree

    • gilda says:

      Agreed. Anyone else think she’s starting to look like Olivia Munn? There’s a tightness of the face that reminds me of her.

      • jbap says:

        She could be very annoying – the break was a good idea.

        I’ve never understood the idea that she wasn’t talented. I think she’s obviously an excellent actor, with real charisma. The persona was maybe obscuring that a little.

    • Thirtynine says:

      Same. Not only overhyped, but over-acted, too. I couldn’t see why she was thought such a good actress?

  2. Veronika says:

    I didn’t miss her sacred rock-rubbing ass.
    She does look good here.

  3. The Voice says:

    With sunglasses on, JLaw. Without sunglasses, Renee Zellweger-esque. She looks great but not really like herself anymore.

  4. Cat C says:

    Has she been tweaked? She looks off.

    • Erika Holzhausen says:

      I think she’s wearing glasses because she got something done and is still healing. Looks super weird. I wouldn’t be surprised if she got her eyelids done. I feel like she has been subtlety tweaking her face over the last few years.

    • TeamMeg says:

      That was my first thought…sorry to say. Preservation work.

  5. Bishg says:

    I’ve always liked her but I think she has made some poor choices in terms of booking jobs after her Oscar. She needed this break not so much because the public was tired of her, but to refocus and decide what strategia might work for her. I think Florence Pugh has been building a career the way J-Law was expected to.

  6. Noki says:

    It really just goes to show just how much celebrities court the press or not. So it is perfectly possible to live a normal life out of the spotlight and only be ‘seen’ while working.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yup. Now granted the pandemic “helped” a lot in that regard, but we saw celebs papped during the past year and a half and I think we only saw her once or twice.

      • Greta says:

        But Jlaw has been papped a lot the last 2 years, she’s just papped in bursts. She’ll disappear for months and then be papped twice or three times a week and not again for months. There are many pics of her from just the last few weeks alone, in New York always with her husband, and recently New Orleans. I’m not a Jen fan or looking for pap pics of her yet I’ve seen many. Everyone gets papped, it’s just a matter of interest and where the pictures end up and how widely circulated they are. I don’t understand why people act like super famous people like Jen getting papped is some odd occurance, she’s famous, she has fans, there’s interest in her, paps follow people, it doesn’t mean she’s staging pap pictures when she’s seen. Though it shows that she and others can disappear when they really want to, so that’s true to some extent. The only famous person I can think of who seems to genuinely disappear for very long periods is Julia Roberts.

    • Lee says:

      @Noki

      Well said! So true!

    • lucy2 says:

      I’m sure she still gets photographed on occasion, by paparazzi or just regular people seeing her, but she definitely does seem to be able to drop off the radar quite a bit. I think it’s a good thing.

      • Noki says:

        Yeah there are some huge stars that can go months and you mentioned Julia Roberts even years without being seen.Sandra Bullock,Demi Moore,Beyonce etc my point is its very much a choice for most of these celebs to court press and attention when its not a work obligation.

    • Darla says:

      Well, she’s kinda boring these days, married to some NYC art dude no one knows and no one cares. I think you have to take that into account. If she got a messy divorce and started banging Sebastian Stan, and there was overlap, they’d get papped. You are thinking of celebs who have very storied personal lives, like Affleck. That’s why they get followed. And Jlaw is papped but she’s always with her husband in the city, and no one cares. Watch her get messy and see what happens.

  7. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Very cute dress, very 1950s-esque. Her eyes look very different to me. Rounder, I think.

  8. KNy says:

    I love that dress. I want it, I need it. It’s very Lucy Ricardo and I will stalk TheRealReal for it. She should try not to look so bored at an even where she was likely paid to go to.

  9. Miss V says:

    She’s stunning… but she looks like she messed with her face. It looks weird, right?

  10. Erica says:

    Love, love, love that dress! I like that J-Law can live a ‘normal’ life away from paps and only is seen when she is promoting a movie. Sure, there are random pictures of her sometimes in NYC but she really does go away while filming or just living her life. It is possible for a celebrity, who knew!

  11. SM says:

    Is she trying to chanel Anna Wintour with those sunglasses at the runway show? It’s not really working. It looks pretentious, but Anna is exactly that and her consistency of wearing sunglasses became her trademark. JLaw and everyone else should not even try, she definitely is not pulling that look off.

    • Marie says:

      It’s likely what Dior dressed her in. As the article says, she’s under contract with them. She’s paid to wear what they tell her to wear at these fashion shows.

  12. L4frimaire says:

    The Dior looks really good but just a tad too old and bourgeois for her. Haven’t seen one of her films in years.

  13. Veronica S. says:

    She disappeared because she knew her presence was over saturated in media. Frankly, a lot of celebrities could take a note from her in that regard, even if it comes at the risk of missing a few opportunities. I love the dress and shoes, though the sunglasses are strange. I’m not sure I would’ve kept those on the inside, but I guess she didn’t want to disrupt the styling.

  14. jferber says:

    I never liked her. Never saw what all the fuss was about.

  15. Plums says:

    I can’t tell if she messed with her face or if it’s just the way she’s made up. Doesn’t look the same.

    I actually always enjoy her personality but do think she was overexposed and her ways turned into a bit of a shtick that wore pretty thin back when she was literally everywhere. I also think she can be a really fantastic character actress and would love to see her more, but that she had a pattern of playing leading roles she didn’t feel old enough for and wasn’t really believable in because Hollywood men are sexist pigs, and it lead to me kind of resenting her even though I should blame the Hollywood men for being pigs, not JLaw.

    I hope she makes a comeback with interesting, more appropriate stuff, basically.

    Also, her reaction to Bennifer hooking back up was super fun and endearing.

  16. Pollyv says:

    Hate the hair. In the first photo she looks like she forgot how to pose during her 2 year hiatus. No, I’m not a fan of her.

  17. Well Wisher says:

    She looks beautiful.

  18. Bella says:

    She looks great, but definitely different around her eyes. It appears that she had a thread lift.

  19. Loretta says:

    She’s so beautiful

  20. Marie says:

    That might be the best Dior has dressed her. And I love her with the long wavy hair. It works for her.

  21. Darla says:

    I think she’s very talented and I am glad she has some new things coming out. I also think she’s beautiful and of course her face has changed now that she’s out of her early and even mid-20′s. My face changed very drastically when I was 27. I thought my makeup was coming out really great all the time, but that’s not what happened. lol

  22. Beech says:

    I don’t care if her dress is a Dior, it’s still a shirtwaist dress. From someone who grew up in the 50s.

  23. JustMe2 says:

    I think she’s pregnant – yup I said it
