Jennifer Lawrence In Prabal Gurung – ‘The Hunger Games’ LA Premiere

Jennifer Lawrence stunned on the red carpet at ‘The Hunger Games’ LA premiere last night; there was no danger of Miley Cyrus upstaging her on her big night.

The blonde beauty picked up where she left off on the red carpet, dazzling us wearing a Prabal Gurung Fall 2012 gown.

Her gold lame gown with cut-out details and an open back has black tulle inserts on the shoulders and nude inserts around the waist.

Via the thigh-high split we can see she wore black Jimmy Choo ‘Bunting’ sandals.

Learning from Angelina Jolie’s Oscar mistake, the young actress doesn’t force the issue with the split. In fact, in most photos from this event you hardly see that the gown has a split.

Jennifer’s hair was teased up into a chic loose bun with tendrils framing her face, which was made up with kohl-rimmed sultry eyes and shimmering pink lips.

Finally a look worthy of the BDOTW list.

    The flaming bird behind her is less hot than she is. She commands all eyes.

    I love it when an understated beauty don a dangerously sexy gown.

  4. Laura March 13, 2012 at 10:10 #

    For some reason…I am just not feeling this look…Her hair looks too messy and the model is working the gown better than Jennifer…A bit more attitude and a sleek do would have made this a fantastic look…

    • bm March 13, 2012 at 13:25 #

      Also, the skirt of this gown on Jennifer is a bit too busy. And, missed the belt.

    • arwa March 13, 2012 at 13:33 #

      I’m not feelin it too, it’s too goldee for me. though I have to say I think it looks better on her curvy figure.

      • tiffany nicole March 13, 2012 at 23:10 #

        yes, yes, yes. Too gold, too much skirt, too much effort in the look. This is a girl who gets worn by the clothes instead of the other way around.

  5. Nat March 13, 2012 at 10:12 #

    Now this is how a young movie star should dress for her big premiere. 😀
    She totally gets the meaning of the “go big or go home” motto.
    I love that the look is bold, eye-catching, original (not many celebs would dare to wear such a shiny gold gown), but not “trying-too-hard”.
    Also, is her hair a little blonder? Nice.

  6. Kaz March 13, 2012 at 10:15 #

    Drop dead gorgeous. BDOTW for sure! Love it!

    • Saree March 13, 2012 at 11:48 #

      FOR sure! What a way to kick start these premieres!
      I hope she can top this, if it’s possible. I don’t want subsequent premieres to be lacklustre.

      But THIS, It’s just superb, one of the best all year and we’re only in March!!!!

      I’d love to see her do a ‘Girl on Fire’ look though – that would be amazing. This is best of the week, hands down, don’t want to see any more!

  7. Francy March 13, 2012 at 10:16 #

    She looks gorgeous, definitely a BDOTW! I’m blown away

  8. Joy March 13, 2012 at 10:31 #

    Love! I love her makeup too!

    • call_me_schmeg March 13, 2012 at 15:00 #

      are you getting a bit of a brigitte bardot vibe? the hair is a little blonder, she’s got the bangs, kohl rimmed eyes, nude lips. all she needs is a bit more of a bouf (but maybe that would be a bit much). overall: love.

  9. MN March 13, 2012 at 10:38 #

    WOW!!! Jennifer actually made my jaw drop!

  10. CTgirl March 13, 2012 at 10:42 #

    So incredible. She looks wonderful.

  11. Jones19 March 13, 2012 at 10:43 #

    Wow wow wow I was hoping she would bring it at this premiere and she totally did! Flawless!

  12. Paddy M March 13, 2012 at 11:00 #

    I’m becoming obsessed with her. She looks too good here. BDOTW!

  13. Fiona-Brasil March 13, 2012 at 11:13 #

    Stunning young lady.And she is just warming up.I can’t wait to see her next moves.

  14. Toria March 13, 2012 at 11:47 #

    Well this is DEFINITELY going to be my BDOTW she looked absolutely breathtaking

  15. Emmeline March 13, 2012 at 12:24 #

    Congratulations to Jennifer – this is the first look to really make me sit up and take notice since awards season ended. She looks amazing!

  16. dee March 13, 2012 at 12:28 #

    Stunning, love it.

  17. anne g March 13, 2012 at 12:29 #

    I love that girl and I love the dress, She’s THE STAR.

  18. mm March 13, 2012 at 12:33 #

    So gorgeous. Perfection. Excited to see more of her from this promotion tour

  19. asherlev1 March 13, 2012 at 12:46 #

    ahsptheot. And the outfit is pertinent to the book as well. I would die if she only wore reds/oranges/golds this whole promo tour.

    • asherlev1 March 13, 2012 at 12:47 #

      One little nitpick I do have is that I haven’t been loving her hair all throughout the mall tour. I miss how it looked when she was picking up awards for Winter’s Bone.

  20. Ana Kay March 13, 2012 at 13:07 #

    Love the dress – but I hate her hair so much it’s killing the entire look for me! Wish it was darker!

  21. eleanor March 13, 2012 at 13:56 #

    Beautiful!! but wish she would have kept the belt to give the look some edge… glad she is not sticking her leg out like dsperate Angelina.

  22. Colleen March 13, 2012 at 14:14 #

    God, she is gorgeous. Love everything from head to toe. I have a feeling she will not disappoint us during the movies promotional tour.

  23. Tara March 13, 2012 at 14:22 #

    I’m shocked that no one wore this dress to the Oscars. I guess they were saving it for Jennifer! Can’t wait to see the rest of her looks for the Hunger Games promo tour.

    • Hannah March 13, 2012 at 17:14 #

      Most people dress really safe to the Oscars, besides, the only peopel who could get away with wearing this would be the nominees, and you wouldn’t want to clash with your award, would you?

  24. Ala March 13, 2012 at 14:28 #

    Oh my God… wow. Yes! YES!

    This is beautiful!

  25. andrea March 13, 2012 at 15:03 #

    Amazing. BDOTW for sure…

  26. Alina March 13, 2012 at 15:16 #


  27. Mol March 13, 2012 at 15:45 #

    Wow, full on, lock and load glamour! Almost everyone at this premiere looks great, but Jennifer is beyond good here, she’s a feast for bored ‘post-Oscar’ eyes……..

  28. Rach March 13, 2012 at 16:03 #

    BDOTW contender for sure… and I’m betting on her taking the title! This dress is perfect for her and perfect for the film, I’m so looking forward to the rest of the promo tour now!

  29. Angela March 13, 2012 at 16:33 #

    GORGEOUS! :)

  30. Ritika March 13, 2012 at 16:36 #

    She made sure NO ONE could upstage her at her own movie premier! fabulous. Miss the belt though, as shown on the model.

  31. jkrau March 13, 2012 at 16:51 #

    STUNNING! This is how you do a split btw — SUBTLE & SEXY!!!!

  32. Gaber March 13, 2012 at 16:55 #

    I still can’t get on board with back cut-outs that go up to the front.
    Outside of that, I adore the look.

    • Cecelia March 13, 2012 at 19:31 #

      Gaber, I’m usually with you on being over the cut-outs ’cause so many seem not to serve a real purpose but I think they really work here. Without the cutouts, it would have been too much gold and it may have looked too stiff or like she was wearing mylar.

  33. Hannah March 13, 2012 at 17:13 #

    I’m dying, genuinely dying. This is, after Tilda, most likely my favourite look of the yer so far. I have loved her since the get go, and this is a complete change for her, as she was always mroe demure.
    The dress should be hideously tacky, but she wears it so well, and she has such an incredible body Idon’t think anyoen else could wear it as well as she. The choos are divine and so perfect, her hair and makeup are also so perfect and in keeping with the look.
    The nails just put the icing of the cake. Also, I’m so glad that she doesn’t appear to be wearing a clutch, because on this occasion, it works better without.
    A completely powerful look, I am so so excited for what she’ll wear next.

  34. Betelgeuze March 13, 2012 at 17:23 #

    She looks stunning. I’ve seen some more photos and besides that sexy face she also smiled and shined. It’s only March but I’ll definitely incorporate this look to my BDOTY choosing list.

    • Fashion Critic March 13, 2012 at 17:50 #

      Me too

  35. Giuseppi Giraffe March 13, 2012 at 17:28 #

    Stellar! She’s perfect on every level here. This is terrific.

  36. ZH March 13, 2012 at 18:27 #

    Hey FC you should see how they did her hair! Fantastic! Thank you.

    • Cecelia March 13, 2012 at 19:22 #

      I agree that the her hair is fantastic! I love the gold woven through the back. It’s the perfect touch with the dress and how it plays off her hair. Kudos to her hairdresser.

  37. glenn March 13, 2012 at 19:12 #

    i don’t like the dress its awful and looks bigger on her

  38. zoe March 13, 2012 at 19:15 #

    DANNNNGGGG! she looks good! when i saw this picture i really got the BDOTW blown away feeling. wow, this is the best she’s ever looked. werking it!

  39. Cecelia March 13, 2012 at 19:25 #

    I love this look on her. It’s perfect and as much dress as this is she is wearing it and not the other way around. The gold of the dress is perfect with her skin tone. She glows.

    BDOTW for sure and maybe our first contender for the year.

  40. jane March 13, 2012 at 19:30 #

    Love it. Perfect dress for the star. However, don’t like the hair; the face framing bangs look too “Dynasty” for me and it makes her look dated.

  41. Ingrid March 13, 2012 at 20:01 #


  42. Angela March 13, 2012 at 20:16 #

    Almost perfect, but she needed a bit more support on her bust. It is the only turn-off to me

  43. Xiomalys Crespo March 14, 2012 at 00:43 #

    I REALLY want to love it, I really do, but I just can’t. I’m missing the belt and the cutouts in the back are not appealing at all.

    I love however, how she keeps surprising us. This promo-tour is going to be good; I can feel it!

  44. Tiger Nueng March 14, 2012 at 01:30 #

    stunning amazing++++

  45. Carolina Roq March 14, 2012 at 02:15 #


  46. JG March 14, 2012 at 03:08 #

    Obsessed. I can’t even. This is everything!!

  47. potteralltheway March 14, 2012 at 04:25 #

    I love her dress! Its only fitting she wears such a great dress, she is Katniss after all! Gorgeous dress, gorgeous girl. I’m happy they used an understated girl for this part. I hope she does justice to The Hunger Games

  48. Raquel March 14, 2012 at 05:03 #

    I dislike the hair a lot. I think a chic bun or hugh ponytail would have worked better. It is my only complaint, because I adore the fact that she went big for her premiere.

    • Sarah March 14, 2012 at 22:58 #


  49. Sue Jin March 14, 2012 at 05:49 #

    She looks amazing. I love how piercing her eyes are! Jennifer is rocking this gown.

  50. kiwi March 14, 2012 at 07:03 #

    wow.. gorgeous, stunning .. everything works

  51. alliehstyle March 14, 2012 at 08:20 #

    Amazing. Love the tan, and the hair and makeup is super smouldery. Her face and hair has never ever looked better, not even at the Oscars. The dress is incredible too I just can’t get past how gorgeous her face.looks…wonder if she lost weight or something

  52. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) March 14, 2012 at 15:58 #

    I literally gasped…SPECTACULAR!!!! BDOTW please.

  53. Dada March 15, 2012 at 14:09 #

    I think the hairstyle is ruining it all

  54. EmmaWoodhouse March 16, 2012 at 14:57 #

    I’m not sold. Love the gold, but I don’t like the back or the slit (though kudos to Jen for not doing an Angie). The middle seems to be a bit twisted on her, and the hair is mess.

  55. Jess2 March 17, 2012 at 14:38 #

    A+++, BDOTW without a doubt, my jaw literally dropped!! I love everything about this look and it is definitely her best. awesome makeup!!

  56. bianca March 18, 2012 at 22:16 #

    Absolutely amazing!! Definitely a BDOTY contender for me too!

  57. Bailey November 11, 2014 at 01:36 #

    The perfect dress for her premiere as the “Girl on Fire”! Gorgeous hair and makeup to match
