Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior at the “Hunger Games” Germany Premiere

Posted on November 13, 2013

We’re starting to think the styling decisions for Jen’s Catching Fire poledance amount to someone pulling things off a rack in a Dior showroom and shipping them off to her with no consideration as to how they’re going to look.

This is not quite as bad as yesterday’s entry, but it’s still a huge misstep.

Jennifer Lawrence attends “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Germany premiere at Sony Centre in Berlin in a Christian Dior paired with Stuart Weitzman sandals.

Christian Dior Resort 2014 Collection/Model: Alex Yuryeva (SILENT)

She’s confirming every misgiving we had about pairing her up with the Dior brand. It just doesn’t suit her. To be fair, after we decided the pairing was a mistake, she turned around and surprised us several times over by wearing Dior and looking very good to downright stunning in it. Were those instances outliers? Or are these latest two missteps something momentary and easily corrected going forward? Time will tell. All we know is, this look is not doing her any real favors. She doesn’t look horrible so much as she just looks bland – and we all know she’s easily capable of looking dramatic and chic. We definitely think, so long as she’s got that haircut, they should keep her away from whites and washed-out colors. She needs richer, brighter, more saturated color now more than ever.

And we’re ready to say it: this pixie cut isn’t good for her. It’s not a bad cut per se, but it’s definitely adding about a decade to this 23-year-old’s face. And it just doesn’t read “hot 20-something movie star at the height of her game.” It reads “30-something local broadcast journalist.” And the way it’s styled here – the way it “sits” too high somehow – makes it look wiggy.

And will someone please put some makeup on this poor movie star’s face?

      This hurts my feelings.

      • CT14

        Yes. :( Sadness

      • http://twitter.com/janedonuts Jane Donuts

        Me too. I actually think it’s worse than the last one. So dowdy! So completely uncool! Sad.

      • kmk05

        What hurts the most is how these shoes are the highlight of the look. They make her legs look amazing coming out of that coat-dress. A scrolldown unfug for me.

        The lack of natural-looking fake eyelashes is what is really throwing her face off. If you go with a naked face and really harsh eyeliner all around your eyes, then eyelashes you can see when your eyes are open are a must, especially on the bottom lashline.

      • fursa_saida

        What makes me extra sad is that I actually love the dress, but not for this and probably not for her. When you combine it with her current hair (I agree with TLo about the hair problem–I think pretty much every woman should try short hair at least once, but in some cases you come out knowing that it’s not for you) it comes out looking super-businesslike until you get to the skirt.

    • Blair Sylvester

      It just seems so sweet and bland for the premiere of your dystopian action movie. This would be perfect for a holiday romantic comedy or children’s movie

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        True.

      • decormaven

        Really. I can see this with a muff and some closed toe footware at the Nutcracker. I know this is from the resort line, but if stylists are going to dial it into this season, it should be accessorized properly.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I don’t think it’s that Dior doesn’t suit her, because clearly from your examples, she can rock it. I think that that dress from the other day was a nightmare on anyone, including the model, which would be a misstep from Dior, not from JLaw. As for this look, it clearly doesn’t fit her, so I think it just needs to be taken in.

      As for the pixie cut, yeah, it’s not for her. It’s totally adding years onto her face.

      • GorgeousThings

        I think Dior is not doing well under Raf Simons. His looks are very bland.

      • Sobaika

        I don’t think all of those examples are entirely fair – two are ad campaign still resulting from the best in photoshop, photography, lighting, hair, makeup, etc. Not the same as wearing on the red carpet. She and especially that hair are not what comes to mind with Dior.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Totally fair point!

    • Diego!

      She looks so uncomfortable that her smile is much faker than Anne Hathaway’s Oscar acceptance speech! Girl, cancel your Dior contract and fire that silly stylist now!

      • GorgeousThings

        Should have read your comment before I posted mine. 10000% agreement.

        • Diego!

          Thank U! *air kisses*

      • ashtangajunkie

        Totally agree and had a good chuckle at “faker than Anne Hathaway’s Oscar acceptance speech.” Hilarious and true!

        • Diego!

          *bows* thank u! <3

    • Adriana

      The hair is better this time but still not good, and you’re right about it looking too “wiggy.” I guess this just goes to show that not everyone, even beautiful movie stars, can rock such short hair.

    • carnush

      No bueno. She deserves better.

    • Karen Belgrad

      She’s morphing into Robyn Wright!

      • SarahMT20

        And Robin Wright is the epitome of bland. Not good, Jennifer. Not good.

    • MoHub

      That is Kate Middleton’s coatdress. I don’t know whose shoes, though.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Jennifer Aniston

        • MoHub

          Definite possibility.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          You’re both spot on.

      • marlie

        Kate wouldn’t likely wear it b/c it’s a little too high-end (Though she does wear McQueen), and it’s not a British designer, but she’d look *great* in it.

      • fursa_saida

        Honestly, this would be slightly wild for her, but I’d like to see it on Taylor Swift.

    • MW

      Lacking makeup, lacking colour, strange proportions and downright silly shoes for mid-November. She can do so much better and this is sad-making.

    • MilaXX

      Agree on all points, this looks boring and fair too mature. I also dislike the length of this cut. I think the shape needs to be shorter or more layered.

    • JasmineAM

      JLaw, I love you, but NO to everything here. Ship this dress off to Cathy Cambridge. And find a gay to do something good with that hair. Also, fire Rachel Zoe because she obviously has no idea what to do with you.

      • Sobaika

        Rachel’s really lost it, hasn’t she?

      • SarahMT20

        I didn’t know Rachel was her stylist. I thought she was better than that.

    • In_Stitches

      Two of your examples of her looking downright fantastic in Dior are ads. With enough time, patience, art directing, lighting help, stylists, art directors, etc., anyone can look great in anything.

      Dior just isn’t her brand. It requires a little less earnestness, a bit of french mystery. Hell, i don’t know, maybe it just needs a brunette. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t work for her. Maybe she’s a Michael Kors girl?

      • lonepear

        She has looked amazing in Calvin Klein; I’d love to see her wearing more.

        • marlie

          JLaw would look fab in the designers with a sleek and almost 70′s-ish aesthetic. Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and maybe even Donna Karan.

        • NoveltyRocker

          That’s the look I remember her first coming onto the scene with—an impossibly curvy blonde in a simple red dress. Probably wasn’t Calvin Klein but I agree that a brand with a real basic aesthetic and some edge seems to suit her. It seems like everyone has tried to fashion doll her up in a way that’s too little girlish for her frame and persona.

      • filmcricket

        This. It’s not hard to make JLaw look good, obviously, but those ads are anything but who she naturally seems to be. I’m on board with the Calvin Klein suggestion, and someone yesterday mentioned Vicky Posh, who would be a good choice too. Clean lines, bold colours, show off that slammin’ figure.

        As far as the hair goes, this girl has always had problems with it. It seems odd to say about thick blonde hair, but it’s not her best feature. I think the short cut could work on her but it needs to go shorter than this.

        • marlie

          I like how you wrote “Vicky Posh.”

          • filmcricket

            That is courtesy of our dear uncles, I believe. :)

        • SarahMT20

          At this point, I’m really hoping this haircut is for a role. Otherwise, she got bad advice. She should have stayed with the longer hair which gave her a somewhat Brigitte Bardot look. Bardot hair would have worked with Dior. Her cheekbones aren’t cut enough to take the pixie; it makes her face look very round.

    • Janet B

      She deserves better.

      I’m repeating myself.

    • Lori

      The partnership with Dior definitely hasn’t done JLaw in favors and I’m looking forward to it ending so that she can wear things more suited to her. I think the missteps reflect badly on Dior more than they do on JLaw though. I have no idea what the folks handling Dior’s side of things think they’re getting out of sending her out in these poor choicfes, but if they think it’s helping their brand they’re wrong.

      • marlie

        All they’re thinking about is that she’s one of the biggest names out there, NOT that she’s the right “fit.”

        • Lori

          I understand why they signed her. She’s a big star right now and she looks great in the ads. The thing I don’t understand is why they keep giving her clothes to wear on the RC that are awful on her. She’s mostly not a great fit for the brand, but there are things in the Dior line that would be better on her than what they put her in and I don’t understand why she’s not wearing them. Most of the time she looks like someone at Dior hates her. Even if that’s actually the case, they need to get over it and put the brand above pique because dressing a well-liked actress badly hurts you way more than it does her.

          • RoseJB

            Maybe the goal is for her to end up on the worst dressed lists? At least then people will talk about the brand and look at the looks on the runway (where the clothes make a better showing). It does seem odd to make your clothing look bad and ill-fitting, but if Marion Cotillard was wearing Dior and killing it, we wouldn’t be talking about it.

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

              Marion Cotillard would look chic and interesting in this dress though. It is a good brand for her!

            • SarahMT20

              Yes,

            • Lori

              That’s the thing, we do talk about Marion Cotillard killing it in Dior.

            • marlie

              In_Stitches said it elsewhere in the thread… Dior calls for someone with a sense of “French mystery” and that is *totally* Marion.

            • Lori

              Yup. She’s pretty much the quintessential Dior customer.

            • RoseJB

              We might do the “ooh” and “ahh” but does it get as much attention as this train wreck? (Or – more likely – yesterday’s? Yesterday’s look was so bad.)

          • lunchcoma

            I’m confused by this as well. She is a big star and she’s in the middle of a huge opening, and it seems like she’s getting the dribs and drabs that other women on their list don’t want.

      • In_Stitches

        Exactly! Who’s going to look at these shots and say, damn, I need to get some Dior in my closet!? Presumably the goal is to get women excited about wearing the brand because one of their favorite stars is wearing it, but when the overall effect is disappointing, the lust is lost.

    • Kappyapp

      I like the dress but agree with others – way too bland. TLo nailed it by saying she looks like a local broadcast journalist. She should be much more colorful/glamorous/movie-star-esque for her red carpet movie premieres

    • decormaven

      Big ol’ stylist FAIL here. Beautiful gal promoting what promises to be the leadoff film for the holiday box office, and they put her in this outfit? With those nothing shoes? It’s time for a complete 360 here, or this is going to be a long stint at the Bitterness Fiesta.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I really like the coat and I like it on her, but pairing it with sandals seems like a mistake. This would look way more beautiful with tights (maybe grey ones) and shoes that cover her toes.
      The hair was badly styled, it looks like a missplaced wig.

      • SouthernGirlRena

        I so agree. It it the equivalent of a winter coat and flip flops. Such an odd pairing.

      • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

        I was thinking exactly the same thing. A 3/4 sleeve coat and sandals? No way!!

    • clatie

      This dress is pretty in a way where I stopped and said OOH! Nice! I could actually wear that! I am 48 YEARS OLD. JLaw – Girl That’s MY Dress, Not Yours.

    • stellamaris73

      It’s true – I adore short hair (cf. Charlize Theron), and will generally defend any woman who wants to sport it, but this cut is doing nothing for her.

      Dior’s a mistake for her, too. But then, I think Raf Simons is a mistake for Dior.

    • Mona_Visa

      “The Hunger Games: Catching Cold.”

    • Isabel

      Agreed with the Uncles! This coat is from the Cruise collection. Except for the hiddy gym pants that she wore earlier in the year, there are other colorful items that can be mixed up to be a better fit for her. The jeweled crop top can be paired with one of the shorter jackets to create a “wintery” look. (It’s too cold just to be wearing a crop top.) Some of the dresses can be paired with jackets to protect her from the cold but give her the color that she needs.

    • CT14

      Her hair makes me sad. I like when people change their looks, and I love when they cut their hair, but styled like this and so blond? That white dress just makes it so much worse-it makes her look thick.

      I’m sad. And looking at pretty people in designer clothes shouldn’t make me sad. Newscaster indeed.

    • marlie

      This is an outfit that screams – BEGS – for a bold shoe and a bold lip. I agree that white may not be her best color, but if they’re going to go this route, there needs to be something else to liven up the look.

      Also, I don’t mind the haircut. TBH, it makes her seem *less* like a “generic blonde actress” to me.

      • demidaemon

        I actually don’t think its as bad as TLo and everyone else is making it out to be here. It’s certainly not the travesty that was in Tuesday’s post.

    • gigi kennedy

      COLOR!!! COLOR!!! WHERE FOR ART THOU COLOR!!!

    • bertkeeter

      Jennifer is NOT the problem….What celebrity has won consitent raves wearing Raf’s DIOR? None! This white thing, a take on DIOR’S iconic Bar Jacket, just hangs on her! The shoulders, neck are way too big…sleeves big n too long. And whats with that hem line? Lousy idea. Don’t get me started on what ever that fabric is on the sides of skirt…meaningless!

      • mlle

        I don’t like where the sleeves hit on on the MODEL, and she wears dresses professionally.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      I actually really like the hair, but I agree that the white is making her look washed out right now and that the makeup needed a little more oomph.

    • Frida

      Am I the only person in the world that liked yesterday’s dress/hair/make-up? This coat dress is kind of ridiculous though. If it’s cold enough for a coat dress, it’s too cold to be wearing sandals.

    • Jecca2244

      that hair is so bad on her : (

    • Danielle

      I love J.Law and I can usually find no fault with her, but I’m just not on board with the pixie cut.

    • Mismarker

      *checks calendar* Yep, it’s effing November. Tights and booties weather, Jen!

    • butterflysunita

      The beautiful Jennifer Lawrence actually looks dowdy. At her premiere. How is that possible?

    • pinkxxa

      I think its the shape it’s like too sloppy Bieber/surfer tween it needed to be shroter or longer or darker or something, hopefully when it grows out a bit it will look better…

      Also she needs some earrings or bling and some lipstick, I understand that she seems to be going for that “clean”,”unfussed” look, kinda like Cate or Tilda, but she is very babyfaced and sometimes you just need some excitement.

    • vwinsloe

      Glamorous movie star is not her persona. And, it’s working for her so…

    • xmixiex

      *sigh* that hair. it’s just not right for her. take your biotin, girl. i love you.

    • Kayceed

      It’s not horrible, it’s just wrong. This is a day dress for a luncheon or other afternoon event. It’s wholly inappropriate for the red carpet.

    • NOLA_gal

      See, I think this would look great on her in a hot red with kick-ass military style boots. Plus her hair needs to be darker; the blond is just too washed out for her.

    • leftcoastpickle

      AND her toes are splayed out all over the place in those shoes. Her toes represent her true personality, dying to get out of that outfit!

    • GorgeousThings

      She looks dreadfully uncomfortable. That smile isn’t reaching her eyes.

      • gigi kennedy

        i know. and it’s so upsetting. i want fierce Katniss to arrive!

    • Lily-Rygh

      I actually don’t mind this dress and think it’s actually pretty. But the head-to-toe coloring is an issue for sure. It’s too bad she doesn’t have a good make-up artist, because just adding a little bit of drama to her face could solve about 85% of this look’s problems.

      • kimmeister

        That looks like DIY eye makeup if I ever saw it. What’s up with that?!

    • Jaeda Laurez

      It feels like they’re trying to dress her like some sort of Michelle Williams pixie type, when she’s not. I firmly believe her best looks are simple and colorful and make the best use of her figure- like that red Oscars dress she wore that first year with the big hair.

    • Deedles

      THAT is no one’s dress. UGH. As for her hair, I think she can make it work, but not that cut or color. Also, she said that she cut it off because it was completely fried. By the looks of it, they should have gone even shorter because what she still has looks dead. :(

    • Little_Olive

      It’s the 90′s hair I can’t get past.

      • leahpapa

        My first thought was: is that Gwyneth-circa-Sliding-Doors cut back? Because I had that hair and I LOVED it.

        • Little_Olive

          I don’t think the short hair+long bangs+strand of hair in front oh her ear suits her. It’s aging.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      To me, this looks cute and the hair is cute, but they’re both Michelle Williams or Keira Knightley or some other pixie dream girl du jour. Jennifer Lawrence has a whole other kind of appeal and this ain’t it.

    • Rebekah B

      Send this one to Diane Keaton.

    • ashtangajunkie

      WTF, Rachel Zoe.

      • boweryboy

        She’s too busy making babies. Apparently she’s 9 months pregnant and about to drop any second.

        • ashtangajunkie

          I had no idea. I learn so much here.

    • Candigirl1968

      She needs to stay away from stark white, darken the hair and try skoosh it up a bit (I know it’s been fried, so maybe it’s not cooperating), find a makeup artist who knows the difference between clean and bland, and find some accessories.

      Also, Jennifer can look great in Dior, but the problem is that the 2014 resort collection is not her friend. Except for a few pieces and the suits, it’s an array of looks that just may be a bit challenging for Jennifer to pull off.

      • marlie

        The Dior 2014 Resort Collection isn’t most ladystars’ friend.

    • boweryboy

      I think she’s more suited to Galliano era Dior with 1950s inspired make-up.

    • ojosazules

      Too bad! Major failure on somebody’s part.

    • anotherkate

      To be totally fair on the hair front–apparently it takes a little bit of time for hair to “settle” once you chop it short. My stylist told me this the last time I went from hair-past-my-shoulders to full-on pixie, and it really felt true–you kind of shock the follicles when you do a big chop, so maybe her hair just needs a few weeks to figure itself out and rest more gently on her scalp. Maybe? I hope?

      The dress isn’t really doing anything for her, but I agree 100fold about the makeup. Give that blonde some LIP!

    • twocee

      I’m so glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like the pixie cut on her.

      I like the dress, but not on her. GTNYBrand.

    • http://trooperschaf.blogspot.de/ TrooperSchaf

      I would love this as a coat over some fiercely cut pants. yesterday, we had 0°C (freezing point) temperatures in Germany. That (not very well fitting) shoe is just wrong.

      Besides that: I love her :)

    • MissFern

      It’s Kate Gosselin’s hair and it hurts my soul.

      • marlie

        Nooooo. I have yet to see a cut on a ladystar that quite reaches THAT level of bad. ;)

    • Mary229

      I think it’s a really cute outfit on her. It’s just not the outfit you wear to the premiere fo your huge blockbuster holiday film. But maybe out for Christmas Eve dinner?

    • teensmom99

      And here is the coat that my cousin’s 1950s Barbie came with.

        A 23 year old actress.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I guess I don’t mind the dress, particularly. It’s not great, but it’s not actively irritating.

      I think she cut her hair off because of its condition (and marley suggested yesterday that an interview confirms it), so I guess a little slack is needed. Hopefully, it grows quickly.

    • Sunraya

      OK, I am older than 45, but such an expensive, designer dress needs stockings. There is a reason that Kate Middleton always looks more polished than these women on the red carpet. She wears stockings!!! Those bare legs are not doing her any favors. She is pale, and unpolished. When did this become acceptable??? Just looks unfinished to me.

      • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

        Ugh, stockings…please don’t… unless you have a serious Grandma/Queen Mum fixation. They’ve been acceptably eschewed for years now, said someone who’s older than 45.

        • mlle

          I don’t think they’re an all-seasons necessity any more, but at this time of year, especially with a wintery outfit, bare legs look ridiculous.

          • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

            Fair points Mlle and Sunraya, My personal, it-snows-where-I live-experience is that stockings don’t make a huge difference temp wise when it’s freezing. Unless they are sweater tights. Imagine the snark we’d be putting out if she were wearing that :-)

            • mlle

              I’m somewhere snowy also, and although hosiery does near to nothing for warmth, it at least prevents people from seeing your legs turn red from the cold and wind. I think my opinion might be different if I lived somewhere with a driving culture, where I could safely assume people were going from car to inside to car again.

        • Sunraya

          Well, unless you have gorgeous skin, I think bare legs look horrible. Why the hate for stockings? I don’t have a Grandma fixation, thank you very much, but I also don’t like scaly, dry skin on my legs showing under a lovely dress. Plus, it’s freezing and your shoes stink.

    • f_yeah_marie

      She looks better in the McQueen she wore to the Spanish photocall today. The hair was still problematic, however.

    • Julie

      She looks like she really hates the outfit but was obligated to wear it anyway.

    • MannahattaMamma

      omigod she’s Ellen Barkin’s daughter!

      • kimmeister

        And mama taught her how to put on eyeliner too.

      • Imasewsure

        Yes but Ellen Barkin has a certain raw sex appeal that her lovely daughter just doesn’t have… good choice for a mentor though for this new (potentially) edgier style

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      She looks lovely, but this just isn’t a “catching fire” kind of dress. She need color and drama.

    • seelebrennt

      those shoes make me cry.

    • KinoEye

      Jennifer Lawrence should never look like the most stylin’ mom at the PTA meeting. Yet, that’s what we’ve got here. Stylists and Dior reps, why? Not that I’ll ever be a stylist to the stars, but if I was, I’d get downright giddy every time I dressed a woman as absolutely gorgeous as she is. How can you look at her and be inspired to put her in a bland, ill-fitting white dress with that blah hair? I just don’t get why this is happening on such a major poledance.

    • kt

      Dark pumps and dark hair with a bracelet worth the GDP of a mid sized nation and this would be rich bitch-fabulous.

    • willworktomorrow

      She needs a pair of kickass boots with that coat dress. That would give it some edge and make it feel like her.

    • Anna_Cecilia

      Surely someone with her looks and talent deserves better. Jennifer: I promise you that in between say, Miley Cyrus, and mature New York society maven exists a vast middle ground of looks that would befit a successful, young movie star such as yourself. Find someone who can show you, because this is not it.

      Send the dress to Diane Sawyer and the shoes to Jennifer Aniston.

    • Imasewsure

      Hate to say it but she needs to look to the dreaded Ms. Hathaway (Annie not Jane) to see how to rock this hair do and style rut. I think it’s cute. She just doesn’t know what to do with it… and Dior just isn’t her go-to brand for sure

    • surfergirl70

      I don’t think the coat-dress is so awful, but the nude sandals don’t work. How about some funky (but not too chunky) boots — would be more seasonally appropriate, and would give the look some edge.

    • conniemd

      White coat and sandals on the red carpet in November? I’m so confused.

      This could have been drastically improved with some more styling.

      This is a really cute dress, but the styling and how it looks with her current coloring does not work at all. If it were a color, and styled differently, I think it would have looked so much better.

      Why is she wearing a coatdress with sandals?

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Oh J Law the hair…. it offends on so many levels and I’m NOT happy about Katniss wearing a WIG for the final two films. Awful!!!

    • OrigamiRose

      Maybe we’re just seeing the true bland she is beneath the hype.

    • cakecakecake

      It looks okay from the front, but superbly unflattering from the sides

    • melanie0866

      No one is going to convince me that those sandals are appropriate in Germany in November.

    • KT

      Both the dress (coat?) and hair are making her look SO much older than she is! Her hair definitely looks better today than it did yesterday, but they still have not figured out how to make it look right. Put her in something sassy and youthful! It can’t be that hard!

    • Jennifer

      Is the hair for a movie? Do we know? Did she voluntarily cut off her gorgeous hair so she could have the same haircut as my 60+ year old mother?

    • bellafigura1

      All alone and loving it! I don’t think it’s right for the occasion, but it’s a great coatdress. Needed a boot, totally agree. I’m also fine with the hair, although as I’ve said previously, the color is too “natural”. She needs to funk it up somehow.

    • jjjoy

      this is terrible. she dressed so much better pre-Dior. her metallic Prabal Garung dress from the first movie’s premiere was so striking and appropriate for the “girl on fire”. all of these Dior looks age her and wash her out.

      • maretha2

        Remember that sleek Calvin Klein red gown she wore to her first Oscars? She looked fantastic — young, hot, relaxed, glamorous. Such a better fit for her.

    • LJCdoc

      I love that dress. I do not love that dress on her. I will gladly take it off her hands, though.

    • Violentcello

      I don’t like this haircut on Carey Mulligan and I don’t like it here. It’s definitely “30-something local broadcast journalist.”

    • StylishDreaming

      It’s not the Jennifer/Dior pairing or the coatdress itself, both of which have great potential, but the fact that she wore this with her hair looking like a soccer mom’s. Even a slicked-back version of this style would’ve looked more coherent.

    • Katharina Ofelie

      I actually love this dress, just not on her at this event. A movie premiere kinda calls for something a little more glamourous, which I’m sure Dior is capable of offering (right?!).
      Also, I agree on the haircut, it’s no good. I’ve always thought she looked better with dark hair, and cutting it did not help! Maybe a more messy treatment would make it look better..

      • maretha2

        I completely agree — the dress is amazing, but it belongs on Leelee Sobieski or Evan Rachel Wood. On dear Jennifer here it looks like they didn’t even have a fitting. The sleeve length is awkward, it doesn’t flatter her lovely figure, and she looks a little stiff and uncomfortable instead of one of the top movie stars on the planet. I don’t mind her hair color, but not loving this haircut on her.

        • Katharina Ofelie

          Also, I feel like this isn’t really her style.
          She’s not this quirky fashionista-type girl that Dior clearly wants her to be. Usually she goes for something a lot more classic and glamourous, but still fun and sexy, and that works so much better for her.

      This gives me a sad.

    • mdcoon127

      Disagree – she is adorbs!

    • Beth513

      I covet her haircut. I am 35. Hers should be more fun and age appropriate.

    • unbornfawn

      Nailed it TLo. Is it some kind of requirement for ladystars to dye their hair blonde?

    • Jacob Bowen

      This coat and haircut make her look like she’s in her thirties and is not the major star.

    • Pterodactyl111

      She looks pissed.

    • CarrieBaby

      I don’t think the brand Dior is necessarily bad; it looks great on Marion Cotillard and Natalie Portman. Maybe it’s her stylist’s choices from the brand? Her recent choices just don’t suit her. They always look like someone was like “here, wear this!”. I used to love her style, but recently with this press tour I’ve been disappointed.

    • snarkykitten

      oooh dear…nothing like TLO to make you realize you have the hair of a woman 10 years your senior. shit.

    • http://www.dogsdotcom.blogspot.com/ Plink

      She just doesn’t do “it” for me. Don’t like this look on her either.

    • http://www.karengraff.com/ fierceartist

      Ahhh, no apologies here. I LOVE her hair. I think it is “Roman Holiday” divine all the way <3

    • Emery MW

      Preface: I hate when ignorant cows hate on short hair on women for no reason other than that it’s short (some just look WAY better short – Posh, Selma Blair, Halle, Amber Rose – derr). But I have to say..I think I would’ve loved this look if she’d still had long hair in a barely/slightly messy glam topknot, matte face, coral-red lippy, no eyeliner, tranny Liza mascara & black strappy shoes. …or I could just be waxing after the 4th glass o’ vino

    • steeg of their own

      Lay off! This is a very young girl, pulling off a full-on Tilda Swinton look here. She takes a coat that’s stylishly difficult and makes it look good, purely on the strength of her own image. Imagine this outfit with a dark braid. Imagine it with curly blonde extensions. NONE OF THOSE THINGS IS APPROPRIATE. I don’t usually get to apply the “dudes hating on a wonderful woman” tag, but here it’s appropriate.

      Jen Lawrence did nothing wrong. TLO arbitrarily chose to pick on her clothes and her hair. Fuck that.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        You know what? Fuck this. Two minutes after you posted this, you claimed Kerry Washington looked like a vampire on the cover of Lucky magazine. Five minutes prior to posting this, you claimed Miley Cyris was a “disgrace.”

        The sheer hypocrisy of people who reserve the right to be bitchy about celebrities while at the same time calling us misogynists for doing the exact same thing (except to the ones they like) is appalling and offensive.

        “Dudes hating on a wonderful woman.” PLEASE. Does that make you a racist for saying something mean about Kerry Washington?

    • Lola Channing

      just come in jeans and a tshirt girl. Dress to suit your fresh face and really cute hair cut.

    • StillGary

      Well, you’ve made Natalie Portman’s day.

    • demidaemon

      I actually quite like this. So there. ;)

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

      Classic pixie mistake–the part comes from waaaaay too far in the back, and just looks heavy instead of interesting.

      I think with better styling, it could be a *great* look for her–and I totally agree that she needs to stay away from pale colors with her hair this blonde.

    • MiriamMc75

      I think we can all agree that haircut was a HUGE mistake.

    • sagecreek

      A coatdress in November and you choose putty sandals? Why, dear Lord, why?

    • Jeannie Shmina Greenwald

      Gasp! She looks like (gulp) Ellen Barkin in these photos.
