Jennifer Lawrence Goes Strong in Alexander McQueen at the Governors Awards

Posted on November 13, 2017

Darlings we are practically aswirl with questions over this ensemble. It taunts and vexes us.

 

We mean, sure; it’s pretty ugly, right? But also kind of striking? And maybe it’s kind of great when J Law uses fashion to lean into the athleticism of her body, in a way that looks powerful as well as sexy? But also that’s a heavily embroidered sports bra? And also maybe the sweeping taffeta skirt is a bit too incongruous with that heavy-looking upholstery swatch?

We know it’s got some issues and maybe they’re too much for the kittens to overcome, but we find this pretty appealing overall. It plays to her strengths and it’s really striking. Maybe not conventionally chic and definitely in possession of a few flaws, but a strong, high-fashion lewk nonetheless. She rarely manages that.
