Jennifer Lawrence for Miss Dior Campaign

Posted on February 22, 2013

If the world had come to us first – as the world should, on so many matters – and asked us, “T Lo, what do you think about the idea of shooting Jennifer Lawrence for a Dior campaign?” We would have smiled indulgently and said in a very condescending voice, “No, dear. That’s not a good idea at all. She’s all-American and corn-fed, and she’s never really demonstrated the ability to wear something like Dior. Best to look elsewhere and send her off to Ralph Lauren to be photographed.”

This is why the world didn’t come to us on this matter:

Shut our fat, gay mouths, she looks AMAZING.

      The pics look good but that’s not JLaw. That is the baguette-fed twin you get when you photoshop JLaw to high heaven.

      • lexilexi

         You are so right!  Goodbye corn-fed, hello carrot stick.  And her head doesn’t seem to fit right on her neck.

        • cooperalden

          And corn fed is great..but it has nothing to do with Dior.  A spokesperson should embody the brand.  These are just nice pictures.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/QK3MTAHUVJCMI7DANY6WFCAIUM n a

            i wish the spokesperson would embody the brand- but that is so seldom the case. i’m not sure Mila really did either (given the preference for sweatpants, for example) I think a lot of celebrities seem a whole lot ‘classier’ than they really are. 

            • adnama79

              Wouldn’t someone who embodies Dior be an aging millionaire or an aging millionaire’s trophy?  I’d rather look at JLaw.

            • http://profile.yahoo.com/QK3MTAHUVJCMI7DANY6WFCAIUM n a

              hahaha- good point!  But, I get more frustrated seeing ads for more ‘regular’ brands– say for shampoo.  Do we REALLY believe that Eva Longoria washes her hair with Pantene? Do we REALLY believe that Kate Hudson wears Almay eye make up?  Sure, pull my other leg and it will play you a tune!  All brands are ‘aspriational’ I guess…it would be nice if they could be just a bit more believable.

               I thought the Jennifer Aniston commercial during last night’s Oscars was cute; she turned down pitches for various lotions/cosmetics, but accepted the proposal for the lotion that she was already using.  Yeah, it was a bit hokey, but I bought into it.  :)

        • Jessica Rowe

          I agree. It’s too much photoshop for me.  And I normally never think that.

        • CT14

          That’s because they stretched and lengthened her neck bizarrely.

          Fashion photoshoppers have no education in anatomy.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=571205045 Kent Roby

             Now all I can think is “Girl, that’s not your neck!”

      • http://twitter.com/rmccarthyjames RMJ

        I have no quarrel with Photoshop when it’s well done, myself – as long as there are no waists that look close to collapse, superfluous limbs, pasted-on heads, or other misuses of the blend tool. She looks like herself to me, just a little sleeker.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ginny-Ellsworth/534496198 Ginny Ellsworth

          (I’m posting with my wife’s ID here) Speaking as a professional photographer, I don’t see that any absurd photoshopping has been done to these images, either. The makeup, posing and lighting have a lot to do with the elegance of these shots. I would not be surprised if they smoothed out her skin, but “airbrushing” has been a standard practice in fashion photography for over half a century. I pulled up some red carpet shots of her and did some quick measurements for her head and neck proportions and they seen to match – again posing accentuates her attributes. All that said, I don’t think it looks much like Jennifer Lawrence anymore, or at least the Jennifer Lawrence I am used to. If I were her, I would be pretty pleased with the results. They are reminiscent of Avedon, and who would be upset about that?

          • http://twitter.com/rmccarthyjames RMJ

            Good to hear from a pro – I agree that it is a departure from her usual look, but I think that’s hair/styling more than anything. Usually she has bigger hair. She really doesn’t look unrealistically skinny to me either. I tend to be pretty sensitive to that kind of thing and I’m just not seeing it here. She’s a curvy but also very slim woman, and that’s what I’m seeing here, emphasized by the arm placement and three quarters turn.

            • muzan-e

              Yup. That three-quarter turn with the subtle lean-back from the hips is magical. I’m a very comfortable 8, but if I pose roughly at that angle I am suddenly a teenager again.  *g* Particularly in a well-structured suit.  I don’t doubt that they’ve slimmed her upper arms a little in the last photo, but honestly, so much of this looks to me like sculpting cosmetics, particular angles and lighting, and a girl who knows precisely what she’s doing with her face. 

          • tereliz

            I do a lot of retouching as part of the duties of my day-job, and I totally back your comments. There’s always going to be some airbrushing and contouring, but the angles and the lighting are what’s making the magic happen. Smoke and mirrors, people. Smoke and mirrors. 

        • Laylalola

          They’ve de-boobed her. It’s … radical and horrifying, actually. 

      • ccm800

        Disagree. This one goes to makeup and lighting and youth.

    • http://twitter.com/nyazgirl NYAZGIRL

      Ugh That beauty shot with the netting and satin bow is EVERYTHINGGGGGGGG! Love

      • gabbilevy

         Easily the best of the bunch.

    • A. Valera

      This is the most high fashion model-y she’s ever looked.  Light years away from that crazy bird editorial in W.  She’s so, so, so terrific!  Yay!

    • http://profiles.google.com/ashleyfmiller Ashley F. Miller

      She has never looked better — keep her away from the fake tans and blond hair, girl looks great pale and raven haired.

      • gabbilevy

        *LOVE* how pale she is. Gives us sun-hating girls some hope :)

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=610791985 Aniela Marie Perry

          Darn straight! Down with tanning! ;)

      • http://twitter.com/starrika starrika

         I like her best with her natural coloring – the sandy hair and without the pallor the dark hair is giving her here. She doesn’t have to go beachy blonde, but she looks too dark and sallow here.

    • http://twitter.com/Moondragonic Charlotte

      Well damn, never knew she had this in her.

    • Mary Saucier

      The pictures on this post are not showing up for me :( All other posts are fine but, alas, not Jennifer…

      • http://twitter.com/watchinginkdry Krysta

        Same here!  I wanna see too. . .

      • BrooklynBomber

        Someone else said turn off ad block — that fixed it for me.

      • http://www.facebook.com/CatherineKatz Catherine Katz

        Me too.  

    • Kayceed

      Who knew she had wan Parisienne in her?

      • Sobaika

        She doesn’t (we’ve all seen her on the red carpet) but someone with a computer went and made her into one.

        You could get away with this level of airbrush magic only in a time when we weren’t inundated with HD images of stars looking positively human.

    • Roosevelt 85

      Sorry but this isn’t her. Actually, TLo, this is what On-The-Verge-of-an-Oscar look you guys coined in the same vein of Kate Windslet. They sandblast all the uniqueness from her and she’s someone entirely different. Guess we should be happy that this is just for an ad and not the red carpet girl we see.

      • Jecca2244

        Dior did this to Mila Kunis, too. Totally different person.

    • Joyce VG

      Wow. Stunning. 

    • hmariec19

      Attagirl! I am so pleased.  I love her.

    • Jackie4g

      Please don’t take it to heart, TLO. Most of the time, you DO know everyhting.

    • EEKstl

      She looks beautiful, but not like Jennifer Lawrence.  More like her anorexic French sister.

    • Sobaika

      They PHOTCHOPPED her!!!!

    • mellorcr

      I measured this and compared it to red carpet photos of her.  They have TRIPLED the length of her neck in these shots.  If I were uncharitable the logical conclusion to draw from this is that Dior does not believe beautiful actresses are capable of looking good in Dior clothing, and let us not even speak of ordinary mortal women….  Just sayin’!

      • Natalie Bryan

         Or they are attempting to target giraffes as an untapped clientele?!

    • http://roxyturtle.tumblr.com/ roxyturtle

      The first and last shot look like Ms. Lawrence’s head on someone else’s body to me. Which is really a letdown because she’s giving tremendous face here and it would have been an opportunity for Dior to show a different side of sexiness. Instead they’ve made her body unrecognizable. A damn shame.

    • bxbourgie

      The photos are STUNNING, but I swear I wish these magazines wouldn’t photoshop these women to within an inch of their lives.  EVERYBODY knows that Jennifer is not even CLOSE to a size 0, but these pics make her look like she hasn’t eaten in weeks.  I’m not saying photoshop isn’t necessary, but not like this.  Jesus take the wheel.

      The spread is still fabulous though.  The two beauty shots especially.  

      • DTLAFamilies

        Especially because JLaw has a body most women would kill for, so why not play it up instead of literally erasing her curves? And this ridiculousness plays out on the red carpet where her stylists stuff her into dresses that only flatter stick thin models instead of showing off what God gave her. 

        • Meg0GayGuys6

          Yea, I would much prefer to have her real body than the twig figure in these shots.  

    • alyce1213

      Even though this is so obviously photoshopped (especially her body), her face is still expressive — vulnerable, sultry — and so gorgeous. She looks like nobody else.
      I heard Clinton Kelly say, “I can look at her face all day.” And today: “I love Jennifer Freaking Lawrence.”
      He’s got it bad, huh. 
      She has enormous appeal and Dior was smart to hire her.

      • girliecue

        Get out of my head, alyce1213! This isn’t the first time you’ve voiced my thoughts, only more succinctly and eloquently. Could we be mental identical twins? My real name starts with “A” too…

        Clinton Kelly is in my top 5 of fashion gays. Lorenzo and Tom, of course and deservedly occupy the top spot. Unless we’re in disagreement about shoes ;)

        • alyce1213

          Clinton is my pretend gay husband – Stacy London be damned! (Although I like her as well, she makes a lot of sense.)
          Great minds think alike.  For fashion, I also like that cutie pie Joe Zee.  My other favorites are not famous, they’re friends.

    • ojosazules

      Damnsies.

    • Judy_J

      Never mind…..I’ve been reminded again about the horrors of photoshop. Sometimes I wish it had never been invented…..

      • alyce1213

        And I used to complain about airbrushing.

    • Annabelle Archer

      I love her. I love this. Why is this not happening on the red carpet?

      • http://twitter.com/starrika starrika

          Because this isn’t her? It’s a photochop attempt of turning her into Marion Cotillard.

    • http://twitter.com/starrika starrika

      I hate this and it looks nothing like her.

    • tereliz

      She’s really come into her own as far as posing and modeling. Still a little soft in the giving face dept., but she’s just so pretty it doesn’t matter. Or maybe it’s that everything is so soft and romantic that the face she’s giving is just a perfect match. I may be in the minority but I think this darker hair color (her Katniss hair) makes her look ohsovery sophisticated. 

      Good job, Jen, Willy, and DIOR!

      • ccinnc

         She still has some baby fat in her face, I think. When she hits 30+, look out.

    • http://twitter.com/starrika starrika

      Supposed to be a reply above…nothing to see here.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      This actually makes me very upset.  Like, I’m having a physical reaction to this.  

      A lot of people (including myself) love her because of her realness.  I know I’m the 25th to say it, but this isn’t her! She is beautiful and radiant as is, this level of photoshopping does not need to happen for people to get behind a brand.  I’m far less likely to buy anything Dior related after seeing this.  I’m sure people would still buy if she still had her length neck/muscular arms/shaped face.  

      …off my soapbox I go…

    • Janet B

      Wow. In reality she’s not that slender, but these photos are gorgeous. She should ditch the blond hair and fake tan and stick with the dark hair and pale (more natural) skin.

    • AuntieAnonny

      The photos weren’t showing up so I had to turn AdBlock off for them to load. Because of this I got to see pretty photos of JLaw, AND one of the ads has a cute guy in his undies. Two birds, one stone!

      • BrooklynBomber

        Thanks – didn’t know why I wasn’t seeing the pix.

        • ccinnc

           I thought it was my computer (didn’t think to turn off AdBlock) – went to Huffington Post to see them.

    • Kirsten Kirsten

      With that much photoshop I’D look amazing in Dior!

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      She looks beautiful.  No denying that.  But holy PHOTOSHOP, BATMAN!  Did they HAVE to make her look like a twig????  I love that Jennifer Lawrence looks nothing but FIT, and they make her look anorexic.  Not pleased with that.  

    • nannypoo

      She looks beautiful, and I’m pretty sure that looking at these pictures makes her laugh her irreverent ass off. Good for her.

    • Imasewsure

      I know everyone is crying photoshop photoshop but this is amazing makeup on her… sometimes it’s so off and this is beautiful especially the two close ups

    • BrooklynBomber

      For some reason I can only see the thumbnail (not the pictures beyond that) but based on that, I’d say fabulous.

    • Artis Diggins

      This girl needs dark hair like always- totally suits her. Love the photos.

    • girliecue

      Despite use of the Photoshop body vacuum, Jen looks luscious. You can’t take voluptuousness out of a person – it’s more than just a physical trait.

      I am becoming increasingly alarmed that Dior has a master plan, albeit a completely harmless one, to snatch up all the best beauties for its models. A beauty monopoly. I’d sound the alarm to hide all your gorgeous young women, but really, who doesn’t want free Dior?

    • Rand Ortega

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      That first pic looks like someone literally cut her face out of another picture and pasted it on a mannequin’s body.  The last shot, though, is gorge.

    • kimmeister

      I know it’s a handbag campaign, but they can keep the handbags and instead hand me the two gorgeous blazers!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MJTLNDL62LZYME3GSXWTHJM6LM M

      I’m pretty disappointed that TLo are so laudatory, since I think this is a disturbing and kind of embarrassingly obvious use of Photoshop.  She looks plastic, her body has been completely reshaped  and looks exactly like those molded department store mannequins.  I think the “face” she gives is also generic and cliched.  If there are fashion ethics, I think this violates those ethics.

    • http://twitter.com/katoshicksu Kate

      Did you ever have that friend who lost a ton of weight in no time. You see them once and they look normal, the next time you see them their head looks a little to large and bobble like for their body. Not bad, just not quite right.
      That is what happened here.

    • decormaven

      What I find disturbing is how the handbags almost seem to hover above the image of her body- almost 3-D. We’ve entered the Purse Dimension!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/QK3MTAHUVJCMI7DANY6WFCAIUM n a

      Being corn-fed and outspoken… and ok, I’ll admit a fan of the Hunger Games books… I like her- and I’ve always thought that she has a great figure- any curves can look heavy if the cut or angles are wrong.  But overall, she has a tiny waist, big boobs and a nice face. and thank goodness she doesn’t look like a gaunt skeleton!

    • IAmJ

      Picture number 3 is plain ridiculous. Laugh out loud bad. And nothing against JLaw – I love her and she’s gorgeous. Just a photoshop job gone horribly wrong.

    • erinbinek

    • Zippypie

      WOWSA!  That photo with the pink bag is stunning!

    • Anniebet

      It strikes me that this lovely young woman has a face that is somewhat of a blank canvas. Not a lot of planes and angles for makeup artists to play with, thus she usually looks very much the same in her pictures over time. Her hair style often provides  drama and variety, rather than makeup. Here the severity of the hair sets the tone, and it’s tres chic.

      About the photoshop – I very much doubt her neck length has increased by an inch or two lately. I could be wrong….

    • lbl

      I honestly the suit photo was a manip when I first saw it on Tumblr. It looks like they stuck her head on someone else’s body.

    • StillGary

      She’s a tall drink of water, but I can’t recall ever seeing her with a neck as long as Iman’s…

    • ZnSD

      Actually I think these pics are proof that you were right TLO: she belongs in an RL photoshoot where she wouldn’t have 30lbs shaved off in post. I liked these pics at first glance but after thoughtfully looking at them, all I see is society’s continued harangue against women’s bodies. They’re kind of disgusting. 

    • CassandraMortmain

      The pics are gorgeous but in half of them they look nothing like her.  The last one especially looks like a completely different person.

      I think that because she actually has some breasts people think she’s bigger than she really is.  In Silver Linings Playbook she was almost shockingly slim.  Her waist was so small I may have gasped the first time she appeared in her leotard.  They’ve clearly lengthened her neck and done something to her face but I don’t think they’ve made her thinner than she is in real life.

    • anotherkate

      Is it my browser? The image isn’t loading! (all other posts show up fine, though). Gah, I want to see DiorLaw!

    • http://twitter.com/nkk Nikki

      The hair with the netting is off, it’s kind of swirled and parted in an odd way- then again I am not sure I can take her hair being so dark, as in I am not sure it compliments her skin tone so well.

      And I agree it’s mostly the lighting and the way they pose her and make up and how they set up the shots, but of course there is some post production that makes her look different- but that’s mostly just the smoothing stuff they usually do.

    • http://twitter.com/jalae Janey

      And this is why JLaw is a movie star. 

    • miatamam

      I think the difference is she is in character.  On the red carpet, she’s usually Jennifer Lawrence, the girl.  Here’s she’s clearly got her acting groove on.  (PS loved her in Silver Lining.)

      • ChaquitaPhilly

        You are so right. AND she a good actor!

    • guest2vists

      Yay – I like her make-up best of all… her features are often treated to the same style (especially eyes), time after time.
      This is fresh and yet utterly elegant.   The clothes too. She looks good in classic fashions.

    • quiltrx

      i agree she looks gorgeous but a few of these pics just feel too photoshopped…especially the one with the yellow purse. that just doesn’t look like a real person…more like parts of 2 or 3 people spliced together.

      • libraangel

        I don’t think she was photoshopped in any way, because she is young and gorgeous on the red carpet

    • kathrineb

      Wow I wish she would go out looking like this for public appearances sans the net on the face.

    • Frank Lithium

      She looks good, not amazing. I feel she needs to have sharper facial features and better face-giving skills to pull a Dior campaign off.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Like that reality show that used to be on where they take one person and try to make them look like another celebrity – They “Marion Cotillard-ized” her…
