Jennifer Lawrence wore a black Dior ensemble to the WWD Honors: chic or funky?

I cannot even imagine the stress of having to get dressed for a Women’s Wear Daily event. Those are some of the bitchiest fashion people in the world! In Jennifer Lawrence’s case, her choice was to keep it very simple and on-theme. J-Law attended the Women’s Wear Daily Honors in NYC on Tuesday, and she was there to present an award to Dior’s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri. So Jen just wore a simple, black Dior dress.

While I get this look for the event, in general it’s kind of a snooze. The top would be better without forcing the off-the-shoulder thing. I can’t stand the “unhemmed” look of the skirt either. This could have been a perfectly flattering black sweater and black pencil skirt, but instead Dior had to make it “funky” for the “kids.” Jen was styled well though – I like the slicked-back hair/half-chignon and the statement earrings. The red lip works well too.

J-Law’s raunchy comedy No Hard Feelings just dropped on Netflix this week and it’s already a streaming hit. Hopefully, that film will have made enough money to justify a return to mid-budget comedies, whenever the SAG-AFTRA strike is over.

    Love it. Love the look – the makeup especially.

  2. LocaLady says:

    Tres chic

  3. MipMip says:

    She looks great. I like the asymmetry, it’s tailored well.

    Not a fan of the beige pumps though. A pop of color would have served the whole look better.

    • Elle says:

      Came to say the same thing, although I was going to suggest gold shoes!

      • No1SportsFan says:

        Came to say the same thing also, although I was going to suggest a black glitter pump to maintain the elegant, sleek, monochrome look. Let the red lip be the only pop of color.

    • Jen says:

      Same. I don’t love the unfinished hem, but I didn’t even notice it without Kaiser mentioning it. The shoes were really my only objection to the look.

  4. It Really Is You, Not Me says:

    I really enjoyed No Hard Feelings. It has been a while since we had a fall-down-funny raunchy rom-com and I LOVE that a female is the lead.

    Not to spoil anything, but there is also a scene that hilariously but poignantly addresses the misogyny and homophobia of past raunchy comedies Starring males, of course . I appreciate that effort. This movie proves that comedies can be funny without being offensive.

    • Lurker says:

      Same! I can’t remember the last time I actually laughed aloud at a movie

    • Nikki says:

      My husband and I just saw it on a plane, and I don’t think he realized how hard he was laughing while his earphones were on! I really enjoyed that movie, and it had some heart, too.

  5. Ameerah M says:

    I like it. It’s classic, simple and elegant. And since she’s presenting the award she is not taking focus off the honoree. I even like the off the shoulder moment. I do think a black stiletto would have looked better with the dress.

  6. lucy2 says:

    I like it. She looks beautiful.
    I did want to see that movie but never got around to it, I guess I’ll Netflix it.

  7. MsIam says:

    I like it! I also like the deep red lip with it. I’m glad she didn’t go with the pale washed out look..

  8. Soapboxpudding says:

    It looks like the off-the-shoulder may be a styling choice – the sleeve is bunched up on her arm unlike the other arm. I like it off the shoulder but it might be optional and could be worn up and more conservative as well.

    • Barb Mill says:

      I was going to say the same thing. It looks like you could wear it on both shoulders. It is also bunched up weird around the side above the waist, like she just pulled it down off her shoulder.

  9. Becks1 says:

    Oh I really like this look, I think she looks great. Chic and sophisticated.

  10. Kristin says:

    I LOVE it! It’s chic, elegant and it looks comfortable. And her styling is perfect!

  11. QuiteContrary says:

    I love the dress but agree with others that the pumps are the wrong color.

  12. Grant says:

    I LOVE everything from the ankle-up. The shoes are terrible IMO. This really needed a pop of color, or even black pumps. The beige just isn’t working for me.

    • sparrow says:

      Agree. I don’t like shoes to be a lighter colour than the clothes above, as they can draw the eye down from the face to the feet, rather than up. Black would’ve been the best.

  13. rawiya says:

    I’m shocked at how much I like this, because I usually don’t like what she wears. I wish her shoes were a bit more fun (maybe in colour?) but the dress is great.

  14. Sandra says:

    Yeah, love everything about this look except the shoe color…should have gone with red!

  15. Shawna says:

    Gorgeous. It highlights her immaculate face. The dress reminds me of John Singer Sargent’s Madame X painting.

  16. LeahTheFrench says:

    Love it (minus the shoes). It’s elegant and sexy (but not overly sexy), the make-up, hair and accessories are on point. Really strong look!

  17. Stacey Dresden says:

    Perfection. Example of excellent use of restraint

  18. Jais says:

    She looks really good. I like everything except the shoes. She could wear the exact same shoes but in a more interesting color that pops. Not boring nude.

  19. HeatherC says:

    I love this look on her, except the shoes (seems I’m not alone). If the same shoe style was a color (either gold to match the jewelry or red to match the lip) this would have been a home run for me. It’s still a solid triple though.

  20. Blueberry 🫐 says:

    She looks so sophisticated here. I hope she keeps moving in this direction, it working for her.

  21. Kittenmom says:

    I like it. It seems quite Meghan Markle-esque, actually, the entire look.

  22. Normades says:

    Very classy. She looks sophisticated and very put together. I don’t mind the shoes.

  23. Paisley25 says:

    I think she looks great!

    I just watched No Hard Feeljngs and didn’t laugh once. If anyone wants to see a very funny, R rated movie, go watch Bottoms!

  24. AnneL says:

    I think she looks great. It’s simple and chic.

    My husband and I watched No Hard Feelings. It was quite funny and she was fearless in it. I don’t know that I would have gone to the theater for it, but worth streaming.

  25. Sasha says:

    She looks beautiful!! I’m sorry to talk about a woman’s appearance but she *did* look a little unnatural recently so I’m so glad it all looks settled down and she looks just like herself. She looks so elegant here!

  26. Flamingo says:

    I like her new ‘lady era’ much better than her falling down in a gown era….

  27. May says:

    Funky can be chic and vice versa; and, I love this outfit on Jennifer. Having said that, I think it looks more elegant than funky.

  28. J.Ferber says:

    Eh, nothing special. Never liked her at all. Can’t see how she won 2 Oscars.

    • nikki says:

      Everyone has their own perspective, bit I thought she was very effective In Winter’s Bone, as a tough, determined and yet pained older teen trying desperately to keep her siblings in their home; I believed her 100%. For me she was very affecting in the Hunger Games movies. Then I saw her great comedic chops in No Hard Feelings. To me she’s an acting force to be reckoned with.
