Jennifer Lawrence wore vintage Givenchy to the VF Oscar party: Pride & Prejudice?

Jennifer Lawrence turned up to the VF Oscar party in this vintage (1996) Givenchy Haute Couture dress. Thoughts? I hate it and I can’t believe this is a vintage piece from the ‘90s. You know what it reminds me of? The fact that Jane Austen adaptations were all the rage at the time and several designers pulled inspo from that kind of Austen-esque costume design. J-Law is only 33 years old and whatever she’s doing to her face has her looking ten years older, I swear to god.

Sydney Sweeney in vintage Marc Bouwer. Recognize this? Angelina Jolie wore this to the Oscars in 2004. It’s literally the same dress too – Sydney’s stylist arranged to get it out of archival storage and had to agree not to alter the dress whatsoever. I love that Sydney and her stylist stan La Jolie.

Margot Robbie in vintage Mugler. I’m not into this, nor do I think it looks like a fun party ensemble, but I hope she knocked back a few stiff drinks and partied.

Sandra Huller in Schiaparelli. Bonkers and very fun. She surprised me with some of her fashion choices throughout the season. She’s a bit offbeat.

Greta Lee in Loewe. This is fine? A pretty party dress, nothing more.

Diane Kruger in Givenchy. What does this remind you of? To me, it’s giving Weimar Republic, it’s giving Cabaret. Hilariously bad and costume-y.

Kylie Minogue, on a sort of victory lap after getting back to #1 on the charts with “Padam Padam” last year. Her dress isn’t good but it’s colorful and fun.

    It does look Jane Austen regency-ish. But it is see thru and Miss Jane would never! I don’t like Margo’s bustier. She’s had so many fun Barbie looks for the long promotion-award season but this isn’t one of them. At least now its over and Margo can eat a carb.

    • Concern Fae says:

      It’s one of those stage costume outfits that has me thinking “I forgot to put on my pants” every time. I can’t imagine she wore it for any other reason than she really wanted to, but she doesn’t look like she’s having fun. Maybe she isn’t at this point.

      • Sass says:

        She’s had so much work done she looks plastic. Probably can’t move her face anymore

    • ML says:

      JLaw: I spoke to someone who is an expert in fashion between 1700 and 19something. She does interiors in period dramas in TV and film and tries to make sure that they’re in the right time period. Apparently in Jane Austen’s time, they did wear flimsy muslims and wet them to make them more see-thru. This blew my mind.
      Anyway, what mostly isn’t working for me is how low cut it is with the high waist. I’m glad Margo is wearing something nonBarbie-esque. It’s cool Sydney is in Angie’s dress. I like that. And Sandra’s dress is visually interesting.

  2. Jayne says:

    Jennifer’s been obsessed with the Kardashians and the Real Housewives for years and it’s finally starting to show.

  3. Tulipworthy says:

    I don’t think Jennifer’s dress does her bust any favors.

    • sparrow says:

      Agree. And Sydney’s. But hey they’re beautiful women who perhaps don’t care or even notice. Perhaps we see more in still photos than there is in reality? I don’t like any of the dresses here.

  4. ncboudicca says:

    I dunno, I like Jennifer’s look. I think hair, makeup, dress and complexion all work together.

  5. Jay says:

    Wow! Sydney Sweeney looks amazing in that dress, very old hollywood in her styling, which is not the effect I remember from when Jolie wore the dress. That is quite a swing, to wear this knowing that you will get a side-by-side comparison of when Jolie wore it.

  6. Nikomikaelx says:

    Do you just hate Jennifer for some reason? Again with the face comments, she looks 30ish and fine.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah I agree that she looks her age. And I don’t think she’s done much to her face beyond surgery for her hooded eyes, which many people do for vision-related reasons.

  7. AMB says:

    Wait a minute, Kylie’s is the only getup here that looks like she DIDN’T take crazy pills for breakfast and it “isn’t good”?

    It fits, none of her bits are exposed, it looks passably wearable/comfortable – that’s a solid “well done” for me.

    Oh – also it’s cute.

  8. Kitten says:

    Diane Krueger looks so bad. She needs a new stylist because this look really doesn’t work for her anymore.

  9. ohwell says:

    I will say, I don’t like any of the dresses featured in this post!

    Jennifer really paired down an already ugly dress to what looks like a nightgown. What’s with all the see through dresses?

    Margots dress is too short and cheap looking.

    I am shocked how awful everyone looks.

  10. Inga says:

    Margot’s outfit is not good. In any way. So unflattering.

  11. tealily says:

    Margot needs a top hat and she’d look like a circus ringmaster.

    I think Greta looks incredible! That dress could use a steam or something in the front, but she looks slinky and sexy, like she’s feeling herself!

  12. Lau says:

    Holy forehead !

  13. P says:

    J.Law and Sydney Sweeney had my favorite Vanity Fair looks!! I’m actually obsessed with the sexy regency look! I’m going to go back to that year of Givenchy’s catalogue and see what else they did because I love this look so much! And Sydney Sweeney wearing a dress that Jolie did and then turning it into a Marilyn moment – THAT’S something! Good on her! I like Kylie’s look but I never recognize her in photos. She always looks different in the face from one event to the next. I loved all the short haircuts last night! America’s bob looked amazing, Florence Pugh’s bob-shag looked so good with the ceremony dress, and Sydney’s hair looks great here. It was a good night!

  14. Shawna says:

    Can we stop with all the see-through? So tired of it.

  15. IFoxi says:

    Knee-hi stockings, please just no, Diane

  16. LeaTheFrench says:

    The only way Jennifer’s dress could have worked is if there had been a major modernisation twist to it coming from the accessories and the styling. Here everything is way too matchy-matchy (and white pumps = 🤮). It needed a black leather jacket, flat combat boots, flowing hair and an edgier jewel set to “break” all of that doily,

  17. Em says:

    I think Margot would have looked better if she had more of a tan, but I agree that her outfit was not the best. Her hair and makeup both here and at the Oscars were very Sharon Tate! I love how she’s been inspired by Sharon’s amazing style since playing her.
