Girl, That’s Not Your Look: Jennifer Lawrence in Stella McCartney

Posted on February 04, 2013

Since Jennifer strikes us as the kind of gal who likes to keep her style as simple as possible, we’ll break this down for her so that she can easily remember some very basic guidelines.


Jennifer Lawrence attends the Santa Barbara Film Festival in Santa Barbara, California in Stella McCartney.

Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Julia Frauche


  1. Stay away from pleated pants.
  2. Stay away from Stella McCartney.

We trust that this will be easy advice to follow, Jen.

    Who didn’t iron the top for her? Yikes, doesn’t she know about Stella McCartney? I think the backboard says it all, “UGG”.

    • Ms_Flyover

      Off topic, but I love that “UGG Australia” is actually an american company with boots made in china.  Nothing like truth in product naming…

      • Funkykatt

        Huh…to sell it as if it’s from AUS just to sell more?  Their marketing is brilliant. Dishonest, I suppose but brilliant. 

  • Send that outfit to K-Stew. 

    •  It’s clearly Lena Dunham’s outfit (not that she should wear it, but still, it’s hers 🙂

    • I was thinking the same thing!  Snaps to her for trying something fun.  But yes, give it to K-Stew.

  • luciaphile

    She needs more up top to wear this. Not much more, but more. And yes, stay the hell away from Stella McCartney.

    • Which I find really strange, since the girl has a LOT up top. Who were they trying to get this to fit? Weird.

    • kimmeister

      I think she has too much on top to wear this.  The model’s small bust is the only thing keeping the petal things from drooping over.

      • astoriafan

        Absolutely right. She has too much top AND bottom for this. Outfit’s made to give an hour-glass figure to a waif, not to be worn by someone who already has an hourglass figure. 

    • It would be far more vulgar if she had more up top.

  • snarkykitten

    It looks like her tits are winking

  • wow.

    im a fierce stella defender, but this shit is FUG.

    • DeborahJozayt

      You’re a very brave person to defend Stella. /Salute!

  • She looks so uncomfortable. As she should. 

    • gabbilevy

      Poor thing. Looks miserable.

    • Kristin McNamara

      I will never understand the appeal of wearing an outfit that requires you to GET FULLY NAKED just to PEE. So stupid.

      • fallen_ikon

        Like those awful leotards that were so popular in the 80s/early 90s..the ones without the snaps in the crotch.

  • Anz

    I don’t actually hate this… But I do hate the one droopy boob flap and the “I’m a little teapot” pose.

    • MilaXX

       I saw another pic where the mike was clipped on that flap, causing the droop. Someone should have moved the mike some place else, and/or fixed the top afterwards.

    • That’s an “I’m a little sugarbowl” pose, I think.

    • Looks more like self defense than a pose – if she stands up straight, either the girls fall out or she gets a sharp seam right in the good china! How did anything this poorly fitted get out of the workroom?!

    • Airkisses

       I don’t mind it either. It’s striking as hell. Love the black and blue, and the shoe choice. Just needed a better fit and a less complicated top with more support.

  • PrunellaV

    The hangdog hair completes the look.

  • shnaggi

    Nooooo It could have been soo good…..I love the colors on her the obvious problem is the tailoring and sizing of the garments. Pants too small across the thigh (only stick legs need apply to wear those pants) and the tailoring on the top is shamefull. Sorry, but  you do not iron to keep fabric like that upright, it requires internal structural support and proper garment construction. Shame on you Designer. 

  • EverybodysStarling

    This is a Project Runway challenge result gone very, very bad. 

    Edit after another closer look: Her boobies look evil. Evil as in “Luke, I am your father”.

  • SRQkitten

    “Stay away from Stella McCartney” – sounds like pretty good fashion style advice to all.


  • Annabelle Archer

    Stella strikes again. Wretched!

  • Isana Leshchinskaya

    does nothing for her gorgeous curves. leave this for someone with a boyish figure, sweetie, like cameron diaz.

  • kirkyo

    For future reference, however, this is a good color for her and I like the idea of her in a pants-something-or-other (I don’t know what this is), but just not this iteration.

    • actually, you may be on to something here. lawrence could rock the ladypants much more convincingly than princess dresses or fashionista stuff.

      • Airkisses

         She’d probably be more comfortable in it, too. Doesn’t she look slightly uncomfortable sometimes when she’s all dolled up?

  • Lucas Sheridan

    Damn that Rachel Zoe!

  • filmcricket

    Blaming this on the pneumonia. 

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    She looks terrified.  Maybe she just saw her own reflection.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      If I were going to be on the RC and realized that one of my boobs was about to play peek-a-bo with the world I’d be terrified, too.

  • kimmeister

    She’s millimeters away from a nip slip.

  • Nicholas

    A … pants dress?

  • Miss_Led

    Stelllllllaaaaah! ~Stanley Kowalski
    also, Jennifer Lawrence

  • uprightcitizen

    Love the coloring of the fabric, and the fit is really kind of cool from the rib cage down, but that top ruins all of it. If this had a simple tank with it, and a men’s tuxedo jacket, it would look kind of cool. The devil is definitely in the details.

    • Airkisses

       Absolutely! With the jacket

  • MilaXX

    I kinda like this. The top got messed up because someone thought it was a good place to strap a mike and then no one fixed it back. Nonetheless, I think it’s cute.

  • HeatherMcIlrath

    this is a titscrepancy waiting to happen.

  • H2olovngrl

    Words to live by.

  • Jennifer Coleman

    3. Set fire to any stylist who attempts to veer you towards 1. & 2.

  • zingit

    Sigh. Every time I see her name on TLo’s front page, I get a little excited because I like Jennifer Lawrence and like seeing her featured. And then almost every time, she’s wearing something awful. Girl needs better gays, because this is making me sad.

  • She needs to stand up straight and stop doing weird body contortions. (Not that it would help with this look, just in general).

    • Kirsten Kirsten

      If she stood up straight, EVERYTHING would pop out!

  • Zippypie

    I like the color blue.  I think that’s the only positive I’ve got here.

    • In_Stitches

      The fabric is gorgeous.  In a simple sheath made out of it, she’d look fantastic.  

  • girliecue

    Hey Jen, is that outfit a Stella McCartney, or is it just ugly?

  • Are her heels too high? Are they tipping her over toward the photogs? Or is she about to pounce on them? GET ‘EM, JEN!

  • Oh dear. Stay away from Stella, indeed.

  • noone would look good in these trousers.

  • libraangel

    Fifth time: scrolled down, and got the shock of my life. Guess Jen the Ninja lost the battle: somebody pulled her top down.
    p.s. Can somebody tell me Why Stella Mc is a designer? She has been coming out with some BAD stuff lately! (Daddy-connections?)
    (And I like her Dad so I am not just being nasty)

  • MissMariRose

    That’s just good, sensible advice for everyone.

  • appliquer

    You guys said it all!

  • You are nine years too late for the Superbowl.  Ugh, and yes, stay way from Stella.

  • Kirsten Kirsten

    Also don’t wear anything if the seams aren’t pressed flat. 

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    May I humbly suggest that Rule No.2 be emblazoned on ALL stylists’ lists of fashion commandments?

  • Rule number two should actually be number one. And then rule number one should be repeated like the rules of Fight Club.

  • Stubenville

    Hey TLo – has there ever been a werk in Stella McCartney?  

  • PastryGoddess

    I will happily pay for a billboard in Times Square with these wise words on them.  

  • Joyce VG

    Stella McCartney’s clothes are the worst.

  • Rand Ortega

    There’s something about the wonkiness of S. McCartney’s designs that always reminds me of the classic “I Love Lucy” episode where Lucy & Ethel are in Paris but Ricky & Fred won’t  buy the latest  couture for them. Then, out of spite, the men create  “designs” out of horse feed bags, champagne buckets & burlap sacks. Then, though they look completely ridiculous, they’re immediately copied & considered Haute Couture.

  • neofashionista

    OMG this is Hideous!!!
    You can tell from her expression she thinks so too

  • TVKimmy

    Egads! That should be a crime!

  • 3. Stay away from satin finishes. 

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    “girl that’s not your look” and “stella mccartney” gets to be a bit redundant.

  • Trisha26

    OMG. (And I ask again – what real woman, i.e. not anime/sci-fi character – in her right mind would ever wear a jumpsuit?)

  • SugarSnap108

    Stella McCartney’s designs give me the impression that she hates women.  Or possibly humans.

  • butterflysunita

    Stella McCartney, you’ve made this beautiful girl look like a fool.  

  • DominoEstella

    This is for no one!  What is happening to her boobs?

  • Well, as taffeta jumpsuits go, that’s quite an attractive one.  Nice waist-to-hip ratio, too.

  • GorgeousThings

    That is one SAD looking bodice.

  • Pennymac


  • SophieCollier

    Strangely, I was okay with the outfit until I got to the bottom of the pants and the shoes.  The legs need to be fitted more snugly.

  • FridaStaire

    3. Stay away from jumpsuits!

  • barbarienne

    It’s not helped by her being, apparently, completely unconvinced that she’s beautiful. She always seems to be thinking, “Why are they taking pictures of me? How do I have this life? This is all a big joke on me, right? One day they’re all going to say, ‘Ha ha, Jen, we’re fucking with you. You’re actually hideous.'”

    I don’t get how such a beautiful, talented person can radiate the inverse of self-confidence.

    • boweryboy

      I have a drop dead gorgeous friend. I mean, she’s genetically gifted beautiful.  Yet somehow she’s not convinced she’s a very attractive person and any attention drawn to her beauty embarasses her to no end. 

    • julnyes

      I don’t get the impression she finds herself unattractive, more that she doesn’t put a lot of store in looks. Which is actually a healthier attitude to take really.

  • Louise Bryan

    “Stay away from pleated pants.
    Stay away from Stella McCartney.”


  • ccm800

    Dear Stella, If you can fail to have your clothes look good on THIS person…it is really long since time for you to pack it in. 

  • Monabel

    Strange to say, I don’t hate this.

  • and always check for titscrepancies before facing the cameras.

  • SOOOOO not her look. Pity is, I actually like the jumpsuit (gasp). 

  • Elizabeth Waffarn

    Obviously not optimal, but I feel this could be 45% saved by more polished hair (top bun?) and a dark earring to bring the contrast upwards. And, inevitably, good posture + tit tape!

  • KC


  • MaryanneGirl

    Oh my, I have to admit that I burst out laughing when I scrolled down.  Not the best look. 

  • Boob glue must have failed.

  • Truly rules to live by, boys. 

  • amaranth16

    The pleats are awful, and the boobs are askew, but it had promise!

  • nannypoo

    She looks pretty uncomfortable. Can’t wait to get home and put on something, anything, else.

  • Jackie4g

    I like the fabric immensely -the subdued black and blue colors make the wide stripes palatable. If this fabric could be structured as a columnar dress or even a fitted bodice and ball gown skirt, it could be striking. As a jumpsuit, it’s just too choppy. For all practical applications,  not just those odd petal flaps on the bust, the fabric needs an underlining. If you think it looks bad now, wait until she sits and watches the movie. 

  • Who is Stella McCartney even fucking to get so much of her terrible dreck on the bodies of A-listers? I mean, seriously.

    • myristica_fragrans

      she seems to befriend celebrities for this specific purpose.

  • myristica_fragrans

    i was shocked that i sort of liked this. if the pants were slimmer and the top fit, she would’ve looked so good.

  • demidaemon

    If she saw the lookbook, she should have known. That is one sad, sad model.

    Also, Stella, I have two words for this montrosity: Fashion vomit.

  • It’s not as horrible as you can expect Stella McCartney to be – I am glad she’s over her Gumby-legged trouser phase – but it is just not Jennifer Lawrence’s look. 

  • Vanja

    1. Stay away from pleated pants.2.Stay away from Stella McCartney.Seems like sound advice for all celebs. Edina will get a pass, though.

  • Aside from the top/support issue, I like this and think its quite cute. 
    No rotten fruit, please!

  • E. D.

    Don’t mind the top, but pleated pants are no good for anyone.

  • decormaven

    Reverse order of instructions. Then tattoo Instruction No. 1 on your arm as a visual reminder. Words to live by!

  • Verascity

    I actually think this could be a great look for her if it fit properly. Too bad.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Yes, I’m going to fashion hell for saying this, but I actually like this pantsuit. It’s fierce and the colors are fabulous. That said, why didn’t her stylist tape the top to her chest? That’s a flopsy mess she’s got going on there!

  • theblondette

    Blargh Stella. Does ANYONE look good in her clothes?

  • This is a nip slip just waiting to happen. 

    Not an outfit for anyone (because it is absolutely hideous), but especially not for a busty gal.

  • Kristy Evans

    She even looks supremely uncomfortable. STELLAAAAAA!! *shakes fist*

  • Mary229

    I think this is ugly but I guess she just felt like doing something different for the day? Not sure. Still love her to pieces.

  • Yikes, no. Nobody with boobs could  or should wear that. 

  • fallen_ikon

    Throw a frill around her neck and some face paint on, and she’d look like a sad clown. Like the little porcelain ones you could buy at san francisco music box company.

  • Judy_J

    What’s with the winking bustline? She looks tacky as hell.

  • WHY DOES STELLA MCCARTNEY HAVE A CAREER MAKING CLOTHING?!?!?!  i have never seen anything ‘designed’ by her that isn’t hiddy.  ugh.  i LOVELOVELOVE jennifer lawrence and it pains me to my very soul to see her punished in this way.  even the model looks terrible in this getup.

  • marilyn

    She is losing her top.

  • kikisayshi

    Sweet Baby Jesus, WTF?

  • OrigamiRose

    Adds to my general dislike of her coronation as Miss It.

  • Cheri Lee

    Everybody needs to stay away from Stella McCartney. That woman sometimes loses her mind!

  • OMG, wtf is this?  This is SO unflattering on her, did she just get out of bed and put this on?  Only a super tiny woman with no curves, great coloring, and pulled back hair could do this outfit and even then, I don’t know.  Anyway, bad.

  • YolandaHawkins

    Is this a nixed costume from “The Hunger Games”?

  • spooki C

    When I look at her boobs in this all I can hear in my head is the “sad trombone”. Why didn’t anybody give her some boobie tape?

    Also this just reconfirms my dislike of Stella MC.

  • Oh, I just remembered that the other night on (?Jimmy Kimmel or some such) she said that her xray (for pneumonia) showed that her breasts were different sizes!! So that explains this top situation we see here.  But not Stella M.

  • margaret meyers

    The woolen blanket of hair augmentation is making her look hump-backed.  Which is OK, if that is the desired effect.

  • shelley514

    What a wreck of an outfit.  Geez, didn’t she look into a mirror before going out?  In that first photo, J Law looks like she knows her look is a disaster.

  • Alyssa

    That’s advice everyone should follow, especially #2!
