Jennifer Lawrence Is Dior's New Face

The two looks you see Jennifer Lawrence wearing above are both by Dior. The one on the left was in Paris, where she was headed to a Dior fashion show, and the one on the right was earlier this month at the Toronto Film Festival, where she also debuted darker (Katniss-ready?) hair. We think J.Law and the fashion house are a match made in heaven because she looks divine in their clothes. That’s obviously been something that has been marinating in the heads of the big decision makers at Dior as well, because the actress has just been unveiled as the face of the house. More specifically of the Miss Dior bag. Like we said, this obviously has been in the works for a while, because look at the bag she’s carrying in the photograph on the left — it’s a Miss Dior bag!

Raf Simons, who is the creative director of Women’s Fashion at Dior is effusive in his praise of her, saying, “Like everyone else, I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence in the roles she played in action movies. I was, of course, struck by her incredible onscreen presence in these blockbuster films, but also impressed by her powerful interpretations of subtler, more rounded characters. Her youth and her classic beauty, but also her force of character and the complexity she’s capable of embodying at such a young age are, for me, both unique and very moving.” It’s true — she’s only 22, so she pretty much is Miss Dior! And of course, it’s a mutual admiration society, with Jen saying, “I’m very excited at the idea of working with Dior and wearing Raf Simons’ new creations. His debut ready-to-wear and haute couture have distilled all the glamour of Dior into the modern era.” Honestly, with the way she photographs, we can’t wait to see the campaigns, because they’re definitely going to be memorable. Congratulations, Jennifer! This is quite the fashion coup!
