Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein – 2011 Oscars

Drop Dead Gorgeous Award
WOW….what a perfect way to kick of the 2011 Oscars tonight.

Jennifer Lawrence was the first to hit the red carpet wearing a custom-made Calvin Klein gown.

Her first-time nominated actress has set the bar really high.

I hope this is a sign of good things to come.

Everything about this look is simple and beautiful.

The hot red carpet lets us know she want to stand out, but her subtle accessories lets us know she’s not trying too hard.

Jimmy Choo ‘New Lancer’ platform sandals, a Judith Leiber clutch and Chopard jewels completed her look.

    I love this look head to toe. I wouldve changed her hair to something more dressy, but her hair is amazing and so stunning! I have a feeling that she will be on every best dressed list there is!

      well said!

  2. Hisadora February 27, 2011 at 23:23 #

    Simple and beautiful. I think she looks gorgeous.

  3. Hermione Weasley February 27, 2011 at 23:23 #

    I immediately thought of Scarlett at the Golden Globes back in 2006. Flawless.

  4. tris23 February 27, 2011 at 23:23 #

    it looks almost exactly the same to a dress scarlett johannson wore to the globes in 2006 (I think)

    • neorah February 27, 2011 at 23:32 #

      I think so. That’s the reason I don’t like her look

    • Thomas Monks February 27, 2011 at 23:40 #

      i agree

  5. From Russia With Love February 27, 2011 at 23:23 #

    She is giving us a Baywatch moment. lol
    Too simple for Oscars for me but still good

    • PamG February 28, 2011 at 01:24 #

      My sentiments exactly! I love minimalist looks and love the color of the dress, but with the hair down, I can’t help but think of Baywatch.

      • Sigh February 28, 2011 at 07:46 #

        Agreed!

    • Kimma February 28, 2011 at 11:31 #

      I can’t believe all the applause she’s receiving for this. Baywatch was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw this look. The neckline, the hair, the nude lips.

  6. A February 27, 2011 at 23:24 #

    She looks great, but I’m getting a ScarJo deja-vu. Not really original.

  7. Matt February 27, 2011 at 23:24 #

    Wow, she looks stunning!!! I figured it was Calvin Klein since it was minimalistic, but she looks increditble.

  8. vicky February 27, 2011 at 23:27 #

    Boring, looks like she’s come straight from the set of Baywatch

  9. sina February 27, 2011 at 23:29 #

    i want kiss her .lol
    she is always the best

  10. Shaina February 27, 2011 at 23:30 #

    She looks hot!

  11. mol February 27, 2011 at 23:30 #

    She’s letting the color do the talking and I think, as a bit of a novice to awards ceremonies, she’s hit the right balance…

  12. serhan February 27, 2011 at 23:31 #

    i think she is so cool and beatiful

    she loks elegance

  13. serhan February 27, 2011 at 23:31 #

    i think she is so cool and beatiful

    she looks elegance

    At first i didn’t like this look for an Oscar evening. But after reading your post, i have to agree. She didn’t want to look as if she was trying too hard. She’s just a newbie and it it’s a good simple look to begin the Oscars jorney.

  15. ipachec February 27, 2011 at 23:41 #

    I agree, love the simpleness of the dress but it is TOO similar to Scarlett Johansson’s Golden Globe dress. I’m sort of dissapointed…

  16. Pati February 27, 2011 at 23:41 #

    I also immediately thought of Scarlet Johanson´s Valentino gown! They even styled it the same way! As much as I love it, I find it too simple for Oscars …

  17. Laura February 27, 2011 at 23:44 #

    Gorgeous and very innovative. One wouldn’t think minimal is innovative, but at the Oscars it certainly is. The color and her fabulous body does all the talking. Love her curves!

  18. ipachec February 27, 2011 at 23:47 #

    I agree, love the simpleness of the dress but I have to say this WAY too similar to Scarlett Johansson’s 2006 Golden Globe dress. I am sort of disappointed that she didn’t wear something a little more original.

  19. Fanny February 27, 2011 at 23:54 #

    Is she really wearing a red carpet? English is not my first language so maybe I’m misunderstanding, but isn’t a carpet the thing she’s standing on?

  20. Kaylie February 27, 2011 at 23:57 #

    I don’t get what the fuss is about. Everyone talking about “setting the bar high…” if this is the “high bar,” then the red carpet is going to be very dull. lol.

  21. Erik February 28, 2011 at 00:10 #

    On TV the dress has such a different colour! Like bright red!

  22. moja31 February 28, 2011 at 00:23 #

    she looks perfectly lovely, but it almost seems to be saying “i’m too cool to glam up for the oscars like everyone else.” too casual for a nominee imo.

  23. Marvel February 28, 2011 at 00:27 #

    I shouldnt like this look because its so boring but there is something luring me in this look. I love this dress on her but I agree with what other people said, Scar Jo has done this before

  24. pipsqueak February 28, 2011 at 00:36 #

    Simple and stunning! I sort of wish she had accessorized a bit more, like Kate Winslet usually does in a simple YSL number plus a major piece of accessory. But then Jennifer is young, so the “no fuss” look works, too.

  25. robbie February 28, 2011 at 00:42 #

    hate it, sorry but this is the academy awards she is attending but she looks like she is ready to go to the beach.

  26. The Dame February 28, 2011 at 00:48 #

    Every man’s wet dream!

  27. Ariel February 28, 2011 at 00:52 #

    Simple and sexy!

  28. mm February 28, 2011 at 00:53 #

    She is the sex pot bombshell of the night! I love it

  29. rebecca o February 28, 2011 at 01:06 #

    a total rip off of scarlett’s gg look.

  30. Nia February 28, 2011 at 01:39 #

    Minimalism is fine, but I think this is a little too casual for the Oscars..

    • T. February 28, 2011 at 06:48 #

      Totally agree with you!

    • Alina February 28, 2011 at 17:49 #

      I agree. She’s beautiful but this looks more like Oscars after-party.

  31. Redseouls February 28, 2011 at 02:04 #

    I think she looks pretty!

  32. SarahV February 28, 2011 at 02:27 #

    Umm.. I don’t like it. There’s nothing special about this dress, absolutely nothing…
    It does show off her great figure though.

  33. Luiza February 28, 2011 at 02:28 #

    I don’t like it either! To me a minimalist look has to be chic and that’s not the feeling I get from her in this.. Maybe it’s the wavy, kind of cheap hair.. I liked many of her previous choices but for this kind of look she should get lessons from Zoey Saldana, Diane K or Emma Stone.

  34. Raquel February 28, 2011 at 02:32 #

    Any other event? Ok. The Oscar? No.

  35. mochababe73 February 28, 2011 at 03:24 #

    I don’t like it. The dress is too casual and too minimalist for the Oscar’s. It doesn’t even look like a gown.
    Looks more like something for a premiere.

  36. candice February 28, 2011 at 05:46 #

    nice but kind of playing it safe?

    i don’t know. kind of a forgetful dress.

    wld have been nice if she found an interesting color to go with the simplicity of the cut of the dress

  37. Danielle February 28, 2011 at 06:29 #

    I thought she looked elegant but sexy. Reminds me of the grey Calvin Thandie Newton wore

  38. shilpi February 28, 2011 at 06:44 #

    With a body like that ..she really dont need to dress up much , this look is simply HOT

  39. Ayishaa February 28, 2011 at 07:31 #

    Stunning outfit. Reminds me of an outfit worn by scarlet Johansson wore sometime in the past

  40. Andreea February 28, 2011 at 08:15 #

    A big NO !

  41. nicky February 28, 2011 at 09:04 #

    she looks good…but not amazing which could’ve happened because she is gorgeous. the dress is safe and yes, reminds me of baywatch. its a little too safe for me as well…calvin klein doesn’t really work with the oscars. only certain people can wear calvin klein without looking dull.

  42. Hannah February 28, 2011 at 20:06 #

    I adore this look. I think she is one of the few who can pull of such a simple look adn really stand out. It definitely doesn;t hold a candle to her Louis Vuitton Golden Globes dress, but it realyl shone amongst the tonne of embellished gowns we saw. She has a killer body too.
