J Law consistently manages to make the Dior work in pictures much more than she does in life. Let’s face it. These clothes are the very definition of “editorial.”
Jennifer Lawrence covers the June 2014 issue of Marie Claire magazine photographed by Jan Welters.
On a conspiracy theory suggesting that her tendency to trip over her own feet at the Academy Awards is part of a devious plot to appear authentic: “I’m trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there’s a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You’re fucked. They’re totally going to think this is an act…’But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland – I’m craftier than that!”
On fame making it hard for her to be the person she was raised to be: “I’m a lot more closed off and frankly probably rude. I mean, I’m from Kentucky. I used to be very personable and make eye contact and smile at people, and now all I do is look down. When I’m at dinner and one person after another keeps interrupting to take pictures, it’s like, ‘I can’t live like this.’”
On her candor: “I’m not like, ‘I’m a rebel; I’m out of control.’ I just don’t think about things before I say or do them.”
On friendship: “I don’t trust a girl who doesn’t have any girlfriends. I have really close girlfriends, but they are guys like me – girls who eat and don’t know anything about fashion.”
To be fair, that coat’s not exactly tough to wear. We’re thinking more of that incredibly awkward pink and green dress – which looks great on the cover.
