Cover Girl: Jennifer Lawrence for FLARE

Posted on May 06, 2011

Oh, what the hell. Let’s make it three Jennys in a row. Jennifer Lawrence covers Canadian magazine Flare’s June 2011 issue in Gucci.

On throwing away diet plans: “I don’t really diet or anything. I’m miserable when I’m dieting and I like the way I look. I’m really sick of all these actresses looking like birds.”

On shopping: “It’s still not really my comfort zone. I can tell what looks pretty, and now that I’m getting more familiar with what designers, I know what designers I like wearing. But I still hate shopping. To me, shopping is still torture.”

On her first awards show: “My first big awards show was the Marcello Mastroianni Awards in Venice, Italy. That was so fun, because my family and I, at the time, had never been to Europe. And so we went for two weeks before and travelled around.”

On ditching the hottest red carpet parties: “I went to the Vanity Fair [Oscar] party for a cool 15 minutes. And then I took off. I’m like a little old lady. I’m always tired around midnight…I mean it was cool to see Elton John, and I met Billy Crystal, which was amazing, but yeah, I’m mostly just kind of uncomfortable.”

She seemed to have come out of nowhere during awards season, having been nominated for a performance in a film very few people had seen and in a role that made her totally unrecognizable in comparison to the mysterious blonde glamazon who suddenly showed up on the red carpet. We thought she seemed kind of cool and refreshingly unpretentious. It could all be an act, but we get the same vibe from this interview.

Gucci Spring 2011 Collection/Model: Joan Small

Looks from this collection have shown up on magazine covers before and January Jones sported this exact getup on the cover of Marie Claire UK, but we have to say, Jennifer OWNS this dress – and we don’t mean in the “hanging in her closet” sense. The brightly colored glam works great with her sultry blonde looks, which is really saying something when you’re comparing her to January Jones.

    If Jennifer Aniston had wore this outfit to her frangrance launch, it would have had the minions purring with approval. Well, at least, this minion anyways =D

  • banga

    She’s great. So talented and smart. She’s going to be mega. Agreed, she is owning that Gucci.

    I actually like the look better on January; I think it looks a teeeeeeny bit slutty with Jennifer’s bustier physique. I am pretty sick of seeing this collection everywhere, but she looks fab.

      This picture is like a tribute to photo shop, No doubt they photoshopped her boobs. I think that’s why it seems sluttier.

  • Mac

    Wow she looks incredible, totally beating January Jones’ cover. This Flare magazine looks an awful lot like Elle mag to me, it reminded me of the covers with Katy Perry and Amanda Seyfried.

  • TheGirlInTheAfternoon

    She looks fantastic and seems really cool – and she was incredible in Winter’s Bone, definitely worth checking out if you haven’t yet. I love love love this collection, too, so I’m still enjoying seeing it.

    • MarFar

      I second the rec for Winter’s Bone — she’s completely incredible in it (but the whole movie is completely incredible). She’s my new favorite actress!

  • Oli

    Teeny bit slutty indeed. And the look is overexposed -have we not seen that belt everywhere?

    She looks good on the cover, but also like a very generic Cosmo girl. They could have done better with her.

    And may I say, the look on the model is NOT attractive.

    • Momzilla

      I thought it looked Cosmo, too.

  • Anonymous

    I think she looks great, but that skirt is so tight it’s pulling the pleats flat, and a person shouldn’t have sit-wrinkles while standing. Pet peeves of mine.

  • http://profiles.google.com/sbkuehn Stephani Kuehn

    Well, with her being cast as Katniss in The Hunger Games, she’ll be a household name shortly. Gorgeous picture. How cute that she was excited about meeting Billy Crystal.

    • Kait

      Yes, SO excited to see her in the role of Katniss. A star will be born for sure!

    HOT!

    She looks really sexy, but for my taste, I think she’s a bit too busty for this dress (she fills out the bottom part really nicely, though – looks better on her than the model). The colors are both really great on her. Can’t wait to see her as Katniss!

  • Sarah

    This is maybe not the look I would have gone with if I wanted to sell myself convincingly to the world as Katniss Everdeen, beloved dark-haired warrior teenager who grew up starving in Appalachia. She looks like the hardest thing she’s ever had to do was choose between cornish game hen and salmon salad or give a blowjob to a lesser Baldwin for papparazzi photos.

      I thought that too initially, but since I think she’s already sold herself as Katniss based on her performance in Winter’s Bone, I decided to imagine this was the Capitol’s version of Katniss. This is probably exactly the way they would present her on a magazine cover, which is actually sort of disturbing….

    She looks amazing, but it seems to also be maturing her a bit.

  • anonymous

    ::sigh:: This get-up is getting to be just as bad as that lace D&G dress. She looks good though.

  • MilaXX

    She looks really good on this cover. The reason she looks better than January is because she’s curvier & this outfit needs a bit of oomph to sell it.

    Gorgeous. I had no idea that body was under all the flannel she wore in Winter’s Bone.

  • Dear_evette

    I actually liked January Jones’ look in this better. of JJ’s is in profile, so you don’t get the dull effect. it just looks like Jennifer Lawrence is about to bust out of it. Sigh. I am still not convinced she’ll work as Katniss. But I am hoping she’ll prove me wrong!

    • Dear_evette

      Ugh. Is there a way to edit? Anyway, bad typing…I meant to say ” of course, JJ’s is in profile, so you don’t get the full effect”

      • MilaXX

        you can edit of you go back to your own post there should be an option to edit. One of the things I like the most about this new format.

  • SMM

    January Jones looked great, but this looks even better!

  • Anonymous

    She’s a Louisville girl, so she’s probably down to earth. I’m so happy for her.

    Why am I at work? It’s Derby Week.

      Ooohh, transplanted Kentuckian here. Let’s raise a tumbler of juleps (wearing our best hats, of course, while fanning ourselves daintyly).

    “All these actresses looking like birds”?? Really? As if you have enough meat on you to separate yourself from the same people you don’t like. Typical.

  • Jsrockga

    Looks great, something uncommon here at this blog.

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    She’s gorgeous.

  • StL K

    Interesting. On the Marie Claire cover it didn’t look like hookerwear, but it does here. Styling? Fit? Pose? Or maybe because MC changed the belt, which looks cheap?

  • Anonymous

    She looks smoking…like the next great superstar …but can you really OWN a dress that everybody’s seen naked?

  • mimi

    She was unbelievable in Winter’s Bone!! Promise me you will watch it…

    The colors in the Gucci Spring 2011 collection were so saturated, they were almost mouth-watering, and the fabrics were rich and textural (

    ).
    A welcome relief in a runway season awash in nude tulle.

  • halley

    Agree that she owns this dress, almost didn’t click on it b/c I’ve seen it a million times but she rocks it! And I want her boobs.

  • Anonymous

    She may own the dress. It may look better on her than on any other human on the planet. But every time I see it, it looks like something a kid would put together out of a rather shiny and bright dress-up box.

  • Limnadhappy

    I like it a lot: the dress makes me think of Jerry Hall, the hair and makeup (mostly those lips!) makes me think of Kelly Lebrock.

    Jennifer Lawrence is so beautiful. Her performance in Winter’s Bone was just mesmerizing and heartbreaking. I was rooting for her character, and for her at the Oscars. I love her on this cover, an she is stunning in that outfit. January Who??

  • orangeagogo

    Didn’t Jennifer Lopez wear this, too? Anyway, this Jennifer blows them all away — she looks fantastic.

    Tired of how spotlit skinny gals say they don’t diet and complain about “birds”. Cmon now.. get real. I’m not one to fuss about weight, but that kind of quote is ridiculous.

  • Anonymous

    Gorgeous but a tad slutty. The first thing I saw was boobs and blond hair. Still, she does look amazing in this.

  • CAT

    There’s something about her…those eyes and lips…that reminds me of Jill Goodacre. Maybe it’s the ‘smolder’.

  • http://twitter.com/ShelfAfterlife Shelf Afterlife

    The other 2 Jennifers should take some fashion tips from this one. Slammin’

  • Momzilla

    No one else is worried about a taste factor here? She looks like an expensive street walker.
    On the runway model, the outfit is saved by the looser cut of the clothes (and the slighter frame of the Joan Small), but on Lawrence it is all pinned so tightly she is POPPING out of that wrap-around blouse with all the openings in it. Where do you go looking like that?

  • Sara__B

    Hello, Katniss. Welcome to decadent life in the Capitol!

  • Anonymous

    FYI, on this article and 2 others, on the front page, the main title runs into the description and overlaps, making it very messy looking. Doing this with Firefox 4.0.1 and whatever version was right before that.

  • Jen

    I like it on her better than JJ because she’s a warm blond vs JJ as the prototypical cool blonde. The purple, orange & bronze pop more.

    Okay, can I just say that Jennifer here has an amazing body–truly amazing in the sense that it’s ‘perfect’ in it’s proportions.  I’ve studied her body for my fashion drawing class.  Thus, I feel I have the responsibility to inform the bitter kitten/unborn fawn population that her body has been photoshopped to an inhuman disproportion.  When your hips have been reduced to nearly the same width as your SLIGHTLY teased hairdo, it’s time to give someone in the editing room a kick in the groin, and an immediate termination.
