In or Out: Jennifer Lawrence in Narciso Rodriguez

Posted on August 13, 2012

For lunch today, Jennifer recommends the breast.


Jennifer Lawrence attends the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon in Beverly Hills, California in a Narciso Rodriguez dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.

Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2013 Collection

That is a LOT of boob for a luncheon. What’s weird about this look is that everything else is so luncheon-ready, from the pencil skirt to the pointy-toed pumps, but then she had to go serve it up with boobs and the whole look feels off somehow. It doesn’t help that she’s got total yoga-class hair. Lots of mixed signals going on with this look. “I just came from my workout, so I don’t care how I look/Check THESE babies out!/I’m here to have lunch with the ladies who lunch.” We don’t mind any one of these ideas for an outfit, but Honey, pick a message and stick with it. A little support and perhaps a skosh more modesty up top, with a hairstyle that looks like someone spent some time and thought on it, and this outfit might have worked. It’s a great dress. It just isn’t being worn the way it was intended.


Vote Now!


IN! It’s Baby Samantha Jones!



OUT! Sloppy and a little slutty!



The kittens had some issues with Kerry Washington’s Princess Cupcake look, but voted it IN anyway.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Huh – not sure what to say about this besides Out.  Like, hanging out.  Way out. 

  • ChiliP

    Oh, Jen. I still love you, but OUT. And I’m glad you’re trying to grow out those bangs, since they aren’t doing your beautiful face any favors.

  • Her pumps are too big, her top is too revealing and her hair hideous. This is the girl from Hunger Games, right? No. Just no.

    Big OUT from me. Although her butt looks good in that skirt. Still. The rest? Huh-uh.

    • mshesterp

      Her BUTT does look great in that skirt!  I just adore her body.  I don’t even mind the boobs, but it seems too much for a luncheon, and the middle-part bangs is giving me flashbacks from my own bang’ing growing-out nightmare back in college.  It really is a confusing look. I don’t know how to vote!

  • Would be IN if she just got some more support for the girls.

  • crash1212

    OUT. Not as a concept, but it’s a bit much for lunch. Keep those puppies for a more evening-y event. something with your hair dear.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Agreed.  OUT.

  • MoHub

    I just want to come up behind her, grab the shoulder seams on that top, and fold a great big tuck in each one.

  • She borrowed shoes from Emma Stone’s Spidey tour.

  • Yikes! Too much in the boobies department, hate – HATE – the hair, and the makeup looks weird in a way I can’t put my finger on. Plastic-y?

    • Little_Olive

      It’s the “all the way up to the eyebrow” eye makeup. And looks slept-in. Bad. 

      •  Yeah, that is some lazy eye make-up right there!

      •  “Slept in” is exactly what I was thinking. That is a total walk-o-shame look, with the evening makeup, the “BOOBIES!” top, and the hair that looked amazing twelve hours ago. OUT.

  • I actually don’t mind the chestal region too much, but the bangs really have my teeth on edge, and are pretty much the straw that breaks this camel’s back. 

    •  I get that she’s may be growing the bangs out, but there are SO MANY better ways to do it than this!

      • LaylaSV

        ….like bobbie pins and an updo, a headband or barrettes, a side part and a blow out. The worst you can say about the breasts is that they aren’t event appropriate. Still, they are spectacular, she is young and this is LA. The hair, regardless of venue, is just ugly and unkempt.

        • That’s some early 80s central Virginia mean redneck girl waiting for me at the back of the schoolbus hair. I can’t take it!

          • LaylaSV

            No joke. That hair is about to get in a fight behind the bowling alley.

        •  Exactly. Any of the above would have been WAAAAAY better than how she’s wearing it.

  • RebeccaKW

    Out.  It would be fine if she was slightly more covered.  Some cleavage not ALL the cleavage.  The shoes don’t fit.  And the hair is an atrocity.  I love you, Jen-call me next time and I’ll help you plan your outfit.

  • I hate the hair. I almost can’t even get past that to judge anything else. I love the dress, but it’s annoying me how the top seems to be riding up on her. I think that if it wasn’t, it would be PERFECT, even if a little boobalicious for a luncheon.

    It’s an in from me, but only marginally so, because she didn’t even bother with the finishing details. And the shoes are too big.

  • Scarlet39

    It looks vulgar. And cheap. 

  • Sobaika

    Way too boobular for a luncheon. And her hair is always so darn messy. OUT.

  • I’m in the minority, but I’ll say IN. I’m blinded by that slammin figure, and not just the boobs. I envy her hips!

    But I REALLY hate the hair and makeup.

    • kikisayshi

       I’m with you. It’s not horrible enough to warrant an out for me.

    • Lizzyisi

      I’m in this camp, too. I think it’s a stlish dress, which looks good on her, but the hair is bad and the make-up makes her look plastic. Shoes are dull, but it’s lunch, so I say IN.

  • Out. Unsupported boobs and parted-curtain bangs are my least favorites of everything.

  • Catiline

    The boobs are an issue, but it’s her hair that actively offends me.  OUT.

  • moppet

    The juxtaposition between how this dress looks on a very slender model and how it looks on a slender actress who nonetheless has some curvature is so striking. It’s almost like we’re talking about two different dresses. 

    The skirt part is very flattering, though.

  • stagmania

    OUT. That is too much cleavage for lunch. And the hair looks awful.

  • Aly Light

    Sloppy, low-effort mess. I’m not exactly prim in my tastes, either. OUT.

  • DinaSews


  • GillianHolroyd

    out. so funny though because when you’re sitting down at a luncheon, your tablemates only see you from the waist up. 

  • kelsita421

    Out. It’s like the opposite of the scroll-down-fugs.

  • rissa42210

    I’m sorry to do this to you, Jennifer, because you are beautiful and talented and I’m a huge fan, but this has got to be out.  Just because you CAN wear something doesn’t mean you SHOULD wear something.  This is just too much boob-escaping-from-snakeskin for the light of day.  Also, that cowlick bang is AWFUL,TERRIBLE, NEVER DO IT AGAIN.  Pinning your bangs to one side with a fluttering butterfly pin would have been more flattering than this terrible hair, which reminds me of my own (when I was six, had been swimming in my neighbor’s pool and playing outside all day, and consciously avoided the pull of a hairbrush).  At least the butterfly pin would take it to eleven years old and show at least a conscientiousness regarding the importance of hair, misguided as the pin may have been.

  • kikisayshi

    Ooohhh, tsssss, in? out? in? out? Well, I think she’s adorable and overall, minus the boobage she looks great. I have to say it’s an IN.

  • EttaKit

    That dress is not made for boobs like those.  And what is up with the terrible bangs?  If you’re growing them out part your hair on the side and push them over.  Right now, it looks like sad little 4th grader hair.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    She looks like a Horrible Hangover Monday Morning personified.

  • BazoDee

    OUT -but not for the boobs -the pencil skirt proportions seem wayy off -just too heavy. 

  • pax540

    I had that same haircut in middle school and I will cut a bitch if it comes back in style. That part-down-the-middle look did no one any favors. Oh, also, that’s way too much boob for a luncheon… or anyone besides hookers.

    •  Agreed about the parted in the middle bangs. WHO thought that was a good idea??

  • StrandedFashionista

    I’m all for the Samantha Jones school of dressing (where executed impeccably) but, in this case, very OUT.

  • OUT. Love her, don’t hate the top, HATE HATE HATE the hair. I just don’t like that center part on her in general, nor the bangs-growing-out look, but this time it’s particularly egregious. 

  • OUT. The shoes are too big, the hair is terrible, and it’s WAY too much boob. And honey, you’re a professional actress– I’m sure you can smile better than that.

  • Eva_baby

    OUT.  You guys are so right about the mixed messages.

    – The plastic smile says ‘I am happy living in Stepford’
    – The hair says ‘Just one more ab-crunch and I’ll be done’
    – The top says ‘Fuck me now’
    – The skirt says ‘I’ll finish filing those TPS reports after lunch’

  • mjude

    i hate do to this jennifer but OUT

  • janetjb


  • Jangle57

    This is just tacky.  OUT

  • Sara__B

    Out. Way too much boob, and that straggly center-part hair is awful. Time for a good haircut!

  • Jessi03

    IN!  She has the figure that I think I have.  I’m very wrong.

  • alyce1213

    Out.  Right on the money. Way, way too much boobage for lunch and abysmal I-don’t-care hair.
    Extended down, the top would make a great swimsuit.

  • belfebe

    Cheap.  It looks cheap.  Out.

  • SewingSiren

    The neckline is way too open. It’s a pity, because otherwise she looks very sharp.

  • unbornfawn

    OUT. Tacky! Slutty! Sloppy!

  • NicholasGirling

    The hair is just tragic

  • Joyce VG

    What’s with the painted on smile?  She looks like she’s a wee bit plastered on the mimosas already.  (Is she 21?) Too boobtastic. Awful really. OUT.   

  • Call me Bee

    Slutty, slutty slutty.  OUT. 

  • schadenfreudelicious

    JBF’d hair and top, sexy secreatary bottom…she looks like she just came from a quickie in the supply cupboard….

  • PinkLemon

    She’s never ever shown up with great hair, WHY??? OUT.

  • OUT. Incongruous and tacky and frankly the hair is bothering me more than the boobs.

  • RL McGruder

    Huh.  I actually like it – it’s lunch, but the other lunchers are the HFPA, so I can get behind her serving it up to them for the Golden Globe votes.  Her globes for their  Globes, as it were.  IN.

  • OUT.  She’s usually on my adorable celebrity list, but that hair + shirt combo just screams walk of shame.

  • tereliz

    I think if the shoulder straps were taken in and she’d worn some sort of cami, it would be perfectly appropriate. Well, maybe with a messy, floaty chignon and some petal pink lips and some black strappy sandals… Still, she looks happy to be there, which is more than I can say for some. 

  • Vickiefantastico

    I get the feeling she’s not even trying. Out.

  • jmorino08

    Out… looks like it’s a size too small. The proper size might have reduced the boob exposure. Can you imagine how they looked when she sat down?

    Also, her hair is tragic…

  • Somewhat OT but gotdamn I HATE HER HAIR.

    Sidebangs are your friend, Miss Lawrence! Do not try to grease your growing-out phase fringe down and use a center part! Winter’s Bone realness ain’t cute.

  • MzzPants

    Walmart hair.  Out.

  • Out on the hair alone!!

  • God almighty, if I had breasts that perky, I’d be showing them to EVERYONE who walked by. I’m more concerned with her hair, which is usually fabulous. I still say IN. I swear, it doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that I’d marry her if I could.

  • dickylarue

    IN if she was going for “bi-polar girlfriend who knows by the tone of your last call/text that you’re going to break up with her that night in a public place and thinks a full course of boobs, heels and fake perma-smile while you attempt to break up with her will show you what you’re soon to be missing if you end things with her and makes you think twice so you end up having sex with her one more time and have to wait another week to break up with her and go through it all again…”

    Or was that just for me?

  • DaveUWSNYC

    From the waist up she looks like a sex doll…from the waist down, like my first grade teacher. OUT


    OUT!  WAY too much cleavage for a luncheon!  I don’t think support for the girls would help this out!  They seem to be riding nice and high without any help!  Ahhh!  To have young boobies again!  
    And that mop of hair…just no.  Slicked back with some product into a ponytail with an appropriately chic blouse and this could have gone so well because it is GREAT from the waist down!  

  • teensmom99

    I think if you pay for something, you want every one to see it and that’s how she’s feeling about her breasts . . . in other words, the breasts are out and so is she.

    • MilaXX

       those are real boobs, not silicone

  • formerlyAnon

    Out. Looks like secretary porn after the jacket comes off.

  • kimmeister

    The hair alone puts her OUT before you even get to the boobs punching you in the face.  Then again, I don’t know that I can remember her hair ever looking really good?

    • MilaXX

       Her hair looks bad more often than not. This is just one of her really bad moments.

  • nannypoo

    Her hair looks crappy and her boobage is excessive. She has talent. She doesn’t have to dress like a hooker to get our attention.

  • It’s just unflattering. Period. OUT.

  • bailey debruynkops


  • That is the worst possible dress she could have worn.

  • MilaXX

    I hate to say it because I really like her, but this is an OUT for me.  I might have given the boobs a pass, but that hair simply does not deserve a pass.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    OUT. This was a dress for a girl with a two-dimensional torso. Not you and your blessings, Jennifer darling. The hair is a crime.

  • Oh, Jen. You know, if she had kickass hair I probably would have voted this IN, but as it is, I gotta vote OUT. 

  • lchopalong

    Why do people say she needs support for the girls? They look perky enough, and I say enjoy having the occasional braless day! Especially with a set like that. Do it before it becomes too uncomfortable. Actually, I don’t see how they’re in the wrong place at all.

    Though maybe this isn’t the best place to deploy.

  • AlinaValero

    i love her too much to ever vote her OUT, so i’m going to have to abstain…

  • PeggyOC

    Out.  If they were tucked away, this would be an in.  But it looks like someone deliberately positioned the girls that way, ruining the line of the dress and thus, OUTs-ville.

  • MissAnnieRN

    Have to say out on basis of hair and And the fact that she should be wearin this to a cocktail party not a luncheon.

  • I’m a heterosexual male that enjoys cleavage, and as such, I almost always roll my eyes at the posts that say, “Put the breasts away,” and say, “Hey!  Those are there for my benefit!  Lay off!”  Something about that top is really off, though.  You look at it from the front and your reaction is, “WOW!  MASSIVE BREASTS!” (Again, some of us don’t think that’s necessaril a bad thing).  But then you see the side view, and it doesn’t look like she’s bursting out of that top anymore.  She actually looks rather flat, in a way that makes me go, “Oh…  Gravity. :(”  It makes me feel like the front view is totally illusory.

  • pugluv

    one thing for sure…baby’s got back…..

  • frannyprof

    Out. The hair. So out.

  • Eye-popping!  My sis-in-law was worried I was going to have a wardrobe malfunction because I was sitting around in my bathing suit after I got out of the pool.  Post 3 kids, the neckline would have to drop so far for anyone to see anything, I’m not sure what got her worried.  I, however, am quite concerned about this young lady, who is so much more perky than I.

    I have to give it an OUT for inducing concern in a not-very-conservative mature woman.

  • IN.  I like the outfit, and I like her. She seems real. Ok, it’s a skosh revealing, but she’s not in danger of nipple reveal and at least it looks natural. They’re not being shoved up to her chin. Hair is kind of limp though. Ugly shoes. Wait, why am I voting IN?

  • ballerinawithagun

    Out and she should still be dressing as young and cute as she is.

  • Out. Sorry, J. Law. I can’t get behind this outfit for someone so young, for someone at a luncheon, and for someone with ugly beach hair.

  • oohsparkley!

    In. Inspite of the messy hair.

  • marilyn

    Out.  She looks like she is coming home the next morning from a date.  Rode hard and put away wet, as they say.

  • TSkot

    skanky: OUT

  • It’s an In but then it’s an Out and I just don’t know. I want to pull her aside and say, “Jennifer, pull your top up right now. By the way, I love your skirt”. I just abstain from this vote. I abstain.

  • PeaceBang

    OUT. No time like the present to learn that less is more.

  • Oh, honey.  OUT.  In fact, too far out.  Go home, comb your hair, change the top, and try again.

  • lalahartma

    Out. Too much boob age.

  • Judy_J

    Tacky, tacky, tacky.  And her shoes are too big. Need I say it? OUT.

  • Out, but mostly for the fakest smile ever. Girlfriend wants to have lunch somewhere far, far away.

  • Lisa_Cop


  • bitchybitchybitchy

    She’s got a great body, but you don’t need to give the girls so much air so early in the day, hon.

  • jennifromcali

    Out! As in the girls are…

  • Out! I love Jennifer Lawrence and there are some things working with this outfit, but I just really want to grab the front of her top and yank it up 6 inches.

  • AnneElliot

    Jennifer, I love you, but that’s too much boob for daytime.  Well, maybe anytime!

  • A little slutty? Dears, that needed a NSFW on it. OUT. Now I need to go talk to someone in HR…….

  • Tempted to say IN just to spite the slut shaming OUT comment 😉 What I feel really kills this look is the yoga hair, so OUT it is.

  • She kinda looks like the office slut. sorry girl, it’s an out

  • CatherineRhodes

    OUT. It’s better than a shiny bath towel, but still….

  • I’m going to give her an in, but it’s only because my first thought was “Mrs. Wiggins”. Anything that reminds me of the Carol Burnett show makes me smile. 

  • MissFern

    Skirt’s too big, shirt’s WAY too small.

  • bellafigura1

    Oh, dear, no. But I kind of love it on the model — much hipper and edgier than the way Ms. Lawrence is serving it up (and I like the shoes better too!)

  • Laylalola

    In. This is proof again, however, that fashion isn’t designed for women with boobs. 

  • Hate the top. Out.

  • demidaemon

    Way too much boob. Way too much. OUT.

  • butterflysunita


  • AWS


  • margaret meyers


  • guest2visits

    This is a dress to wear for an entirely different occasion. Too hot and sexy for a lunch date.

  • She’s my girl crush; I can’t give her an out, but her hair isn’t good.

  • Thathoodwink

    OUT. It looks like a swimsuit.

  • frankystein123

    I’m sorry, but the combination of the yoga hair and the dazed smile suggests someone who is slutty and unrefined.

  • Cat_In_A_Hat

    It’s a scroll UP fug. Out!

  • I just can’t with her hair. OUT.

  • I would say out, but then I look at that last pic and the homely, average assistant girl in the background and it brings some perspective to the situation.  Too much boob, but damn, she looks good.

  • curiouserandcuriousest

    The dress is great on the model, but definitely not JL’s dress. Something about her smile and body language makes me think she is uncomfortable with the look and, above all, that’s why it’s an OUT. Something tells me I didn’t need to vote, though!

  • dsco3031

    I am currently trying to grow out bangs, so I feel her pain, but a hairstylist should know better than to do this to her! That awful middle part with the comma bangs on either side of her forehead? She is so pretty and this hairstyle is just… bad. I have to give her a sad, yet well-meaning, out.

  • Ann

    OUT – the hair overpowers anything that might be good about the look.

  • theblondette

    As we all know, I like boobs! Cleavage is awesome. I do not, however, like to be able to see UNDERBOOB. Come on, sweetie, that’s just crossing a line. Plus her shoes don’t fit. I feel like she should have an accessory, say a bracelet. This looks like she realised she was running late and threw it on after her shower.

  • Snarky_Amber

    That top is not for girls with Cs and above. Sorry, Jen. Also, seriously, brush your hair, kiddo.

  • kathryn_dc

    Aw, bless her. I think she has sad eyes and that smile is just pasted on. That booty is bangin’ but this is definitely an out. 

  • Her hair drives me insane! Like I want to pick it out of her eyes every time I see a picture of her.

  • MarissaLG

    Oh, no no no. Sloppy and slutty, definitely. out. 

  • librarygrrl64

    OUT. The top. The hair. Oh, Jen.

  • That shit is way out. Way. Out. The hair and makeup put the final outness on the out.

  • letter_M

    OUT OUT OUT!  How can you possibly look at anything else??  The neckline is SO distracting.  TOTALLY inappropriate for a luncheon.  She’s hoping to get a golden globe one day for sure.

  • She has nice smile…and boobs

  • julnyes

    She is a sweetheart, but this is the wrong outfit for the event (though her butt looks excellent in that skirt). She is also too casual in the hair dept – for that its an OUT.

  • Judih1

    Train wreck – OUT

  • Oh, Jennifer, honey, no.  OUT.  As OUT as your poor boobs are in this.

  • luciaphile

    OMG no. Top killed it. OUT.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    In because I like her.  I recognize that this is irrational but I have been on vacation and am catching up in a gin and tonic haze.

  • EdgarAllenPwn

    Severely Out. Her hair looks ridiculous and so does everything else.
