Jennifer Lawrence wore Loewe & Alaia in Madrid: cute or tragic?

Given the likelihood of an actors’ strike, I imagine we’ll see a rush of actors promoting their projects in the coming weeks. Jennifer Lawrence must be happy that her promotional tour for No Hard Feelings is already ongoing – she was in London at the beginning of the week, and then the tour moved to Madrid. These are photos from the photocall and premiere events in Spain.

At the photocall, J-Law wore a short, flouncy Alaia shirtdress which looked great on her, even if it’s not what I would have put her in. I get the vibe she was going for though – it’s a racy comedy, she wanted to wear something sexy and cute. But then she wore this Loewe dress for the premiere and I have no words. I still don’t really understand why so many celebrity women are obsessed with Loewe, honestly. So many of the designs are just stunt-fashion, not real craftsmanship or anything flattering. Loewe designed that balloon-boob dress, remember that? Well, this dress on J-Law is completely awful. It’s supposed to be structured so it looks like it’s floating on her body, except that’s not what it looks like. It looks like someone stuck cardboard inserts into an oversized dress. The nude color does nothing for Jennifer either.

As much as I hate J-Law’s Dior contract, I will take Dior’s prom dresses over this sh-t any day of the week.

  1. No no no no that tan one is tragic and horrible and just no. Not fond of the white one either.

      The first one is horrific! Remember when, as kids, you’d cut the top & bottom out of a carton for a costume? The way this stands off her body reminds me of that. Bad color for her as well.

      The white reminds me of when we’d wear our Dad’s/Bf’s shirt, belted, over leggings. Still, a huge improvement over the tan dress.

  2. It Really Is You, Not Me I’m says:

    The Loewe dress looks like a middle school home ec project.

    The Alaia dress is beautiful on JLaw.

  3. Eurydice says:

    That’s not a dress – that’s an 4th grade crafts project.

  4. Renae says:

    Dear god! What IS that? Why? It stands out so far in front I imagine the ‘girls’ are just swinging on there own behind that stiff packaging.
    Only one boob is needed…..the one to buy/wear that cardboard.
    At least if it is cardboard, its more recyclable.

  5. Nubia says:

    I feel like Jennifer ‘unFamed’ herself if that makes sense. She really was on the verge of being too over exposed, good for her self awareness.

  6. Coco says:

    I’m not sure what that first thing was, but it was ass ugly. Now the white dress looked really cute and fun which fit the theme of the movie perfectly.

    The shoes are still bad though.

  7. lucy2 says:

    Oh no. That is…not a good dress.
    It will certainly get lots of attention though, which I suppose it not a bad thing when promoting a project?

  8. Blueberry 🫐 says:

    Who are you wearing? “Believe it or not, I taught MYSELF to sew during lockdown!”🧵…🦗 🦗

    • BeanieBean says:

      Now this, I believe. What I cannot believe is that a professional designed that…thing. She must have been quite chilly, considering the several inches-wide gap all the way around the top of that…thing. Sorry, it’s not a garment at all, let alone a dress. I do like Loewe’s handbags, but I doubt I’d ever be tempted to try on an article of alleged clothing.

  9. K says:

    Horrible looks like surgical tape or something. I am not in love with the white one but at least it looks like a garment.

    • BillyPilgrim says:

      I think they’re both hideous. That nude color looks so bad on her .

      • BeanieBean says:

        I agree, both are hideous. The proportions are all wrong for that shirtdress; it needs to be longer to balance out the width of that flouncy hem.

  10. lilag says:

    this loewe dress is the saddest piece of clothing i’ve seen in a while

  11. ME says:

    NO. It’s a NO. Why would she wear that?

  12. maisie says:

    this is truly one of the worst outfits I have ever seen. and that’s saying a lot.

  13. HeyKay says:

    $100K cash before I’d be seen in that tan thing.
    She could have worn a bath towel and that would look better.
    Lousy both “outfits”

  14. ISeeYou says:

    Thank you to the two commenters who described that Loewe abomination as “tan” and “beige.” Nude is the state of being undressed and when I am undressed I do not see that color. “Nude” is a color only for some white folk.

  15. SarahCS says:

    The shirt dress is fun but I’m not a fan of the shoes.

    Now, the beige thing. I’m going to settle for saying that I’d have paid good money to be in the room when she was shown what she would be wearing.

    Loewe’s current vibe seems to be ‘I hate women’.

  16. Blithe says:

    That tan thing is tragic. It reminds be of the dresses that I used to make for my paper dolls out of grocery bags when I was a bored child.

    I like the Alaia. It’s cute and looks like it would be fun to wear. Like @SarahCS, I think she should lose the shoes. They’re great shoes, but they seem more serious and elegant and don’t fit the vibe of the dress IMO.

  17. Justpassingby says:

    Am I the only one to think that she did something to her face and looks like a totally different person in these photos?

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Came here to say the same thing: she def did sth to her face (IMO eye area) and strangely enough it makes her look older. I saw a recent interview with her and it’s very obvious when she talks.

  18. Rose says:

    I like both. I don’t think the Loewe was about looking cute but more conceptual. I think the fact that it reminds so many of us of school projects and stuff we made for our dolls out of scraps is fun. I’m happy to go there mentally and the side pic of it is cool. That’s all I got to say.

  19. Ann says:

    I don’t understand that dress and I think that is on purpose?

  20. Sass says:

    Did Katie Holmes cancel on these designers last minute and JLaw stepped in? Lord Jesus.

  21. Ameerah M says:

    Loewe has a really interesting history as a design house. They started out with leather goods – shoes and bags in 1876 in Madrid. Similar to Gucci that was their bread and butter for a really long time. I had a pair of their boots that I was OBSESSED with. I sold them on consignment after lockdown because my lifestyle has changed so much and I no longer have anywhere to wear them to. Their clothing really is about being irreverent and ridiculous. I’m not a fan of the dress but it definitely fits their house code. I love the Alaia dress.

    • Liz says:

      I enjoy this kind of commentary, because I’m a casual follower of fashion but I really love when someone has a more in-depth knowledge of the fashion houses and their progression over the years. It’s cool to see how you utilized fashion at one point and also re-sell to give an item its next moment of time.

  22. j.ferber says:

    The yellowish one is horrible. I like the white belted one better. She looks like an ordinary woman in her clothes, not super-glamorized like she used to be. Again, I never saw her as a looker, not ever. Have yet to see her act.

  23. Gelya says:

    That dress is stupid. The whole thing is stupid. I have never said a dress was stupid before.

    I do like the shirtdress. I agree I would not have chosen that for her. It is sweet and sexy.

  24. yellowy says:

    Jennifer Lawrence clearly loves fashion but she is not a great model to me. She tends to pose and act rather than let the clothes live through her. She’s a bad fit for Dior. She’s more a sun-kissed, All-American, jeans-and T-shirt type.
