Who Wore Stella McCartney Better…Jennifer Lawrence or Rila Fukushima

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better Jennifer Lawrence or Rila Fukushima

Back in February, during awards season, Jennifer Lawrence attended the 28th Santa Barbara Film Festival, where she picked up the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award.

She did so wearing a Stella McCartney tailored jumpsuit striped in tones of navy-blue from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which made for a contemporary evening offering; she styled the jumpsuit with black satin Casadei pumps.

Rila Fukushima made a bold entrance onto the red carpet for ‘The Wolverine’ London premiere last month, wearing the same look with black patent Louboutins, a hot-red pout and side-swept curls.

This was a really easy choice for me: Rila wins – her smoothed-out neckline, overall attitude, confidence and stance win me over.

Jennifer Lawrence for Vogue US September 2013

cover-story-jennifer-lawrence-06_164608318613

It’s been a long time coming, but Jennifer Lawrence finally graces the cover of American Vogue for their coveted September 2013 issue wearing Calvin Klein.

The ‘Hunger Games’ heroine and Academy-Award-winning actress was captured by Mario Testino wearing Fall 2013 pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Rochas, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton. Surprisingly, no Dior.

In the mag, which hits newsstands August 20, Jennifer opens up about fans, saying that while she’s grateful for her opportunities she had trouble adjusting to the attention. She also talks about choosing to do Hunger Games, the paparazzi, and fame.

You can read more over at Vogue.com, or check out the extracts below.

On choosing to do the Hunger Games films: “When Winter’s Bone was getting nominated, I had only done indies, and suddenly I was introduced to this brand-new world where I didn’t feel like myself. I was in these weird gowns and listening to people talk about things I didn’t understand. And I remember reading that in the book and being like, Oh, my God, I know exactly what this feels like. I don’t know what it’s like to get ready for your death, but I do know what it’s like to be almost a puppet. And then when I was making the second film, I had become more acquainted with that world, and I think that’s something that Katniss experiences. She is different when she comes back. She does feel more comfortable in the Capitol; she understands the people more, and it’s not as eerie and scary and unfamiliar. She kind of knows how to work the system.”

On the paparazzi: “If I were just your average 23-year-old girl and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense… I am just not OK with it. It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it.”

On deciding to be an actress: “I know it sounds so stupid, but it was kind of like I finally found something people were telling me I was good at, which I had never heard, ever. And that was a big reason why my parents let me do this. One time, my mom was on the phone with my dad, saying, ‘We’re paying for therapy and all this medication, and we don’t need it when she’s here. She’s happy.’ ”

On fame: “It’s just that I’m still getting used to everything. It still makes me a little emotional, just to see how quickly everything kind of changes… that it changes so fast. So I’ve kind of been a big homebody lately. But I think eventually, one of these days, I guess when the next franchise starts and I’m not in it, and the new Jennifer Lawrence is born, then I’ll be able to go outside.”

Anna Paquin, Jennifer Lawrence & Halle Berry – 20th Century Fox ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Panel: Comic Con 2013

20th Century Fox Panel - Comic-Con International 2013

Anna Paquin, Jennifer Lawrence and Halle Berry posed together at the 20th Century Fox ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ panel during Comic-Con 2013 held at the San Diego Convention Center on Saturday in San Diego, California.

Anna Paquin: This was her second look at the event. On this occasion she finally opted for a colour other than black when she wore this McQ Alexander McQueen kaleidoscope-print sleeveless dress from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, giving the look an edge with Bionda Castana suede-and-mesh booties.

Jennifer Lawrence: This was also Jennifer’s second look of the weekend. Her white Alexander McQueen Resort 2014 bandage dress was styled with a gorgeous pair of Nicholas Kirkwood light-blue lace pumps.

Halle Berry: The newlywed, who is due to pop any day now, opted for a feminine tri-colour chiffon frock, which she styled with Brian Atwood ‘Uma’ black leather sandals.

Jennifer Lawrence In Proenza Schouler – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Press Line: Comic Con 2013

Jennifer Lawrence In Proenza Schouler - 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' Press Line Comic Con 2013

Like Lily Collins, Jennifer Lawrence kept it black and white at Comic-Con 2013′s ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ press line on Saturday in San Diego, California, which she attended with co-star Josh Hutcherson.

On this occasion, the Miss Dior girl found inspiration in another label with this Proenza Schouler Resort 2014 monochromatic ensemble featuring a zebra-inspired, zigzag crop tee and white asymmetrical, A-line skirt that was more apron-like than A-plus.

This outing may have been more successful than her other recent cropped entrance—at least from the waist up—but it still didn’t connect all the dots.

The Nicholas Kirkwood slingback ankle boots really prompted some sole-searching for a more appropriate pair. Black lace booties were an unusual counterpoint to this sportier PS ensemble and even had me wishing for black pumps—for a split second.

A braided updo, perhaps inspired by Katniss Everdeen, and bronzed makeup finished the look.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Several stars arrived at the Hotel Des Invalides in Paris, France this afternoon for the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture presentation, with Marion Cotillard as the surprise absentee.

Jennifer Lawrence: The Oscar-winning actress and current face of Miss Dior was of course front row, getting a first look at her next red carpet look, no doubt. Jennifer selected a printed pastel-metallic guipure top with charcoal wool trousers with a stripe down one side and pleats down the other from the Resort 2014 collection. Black Dior sunglasses, shoes and a Dior fine jewelry ‘Bois de Rose’ bracelet. You are expecting me to say that I dislike the black pumps; well, I am too busy saving all my dislike for those pants. The colour, the style, the pleats: nothing about them work for me.

Miroslava Duma: After a pretty lacklustre weekend fashion-wise, Miroslava finally gives me a red carpet look I can love. The fashion editor selected a Dior Resort 2014 ivory bustier dress with blue-, orange- and pink-striped panels, which she styled with an Hermes black bag and lust-worthy blue pumps.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a regular in the front row at Dior, wore a full Dior look. Usually she marches to the beat of her own drum and will wear even high-street looks like Zara and Topshop to Fashion week; on this occasion she wore a Dior white jacket paired with a pink-and-blue organza skirt with all-Dior accessories, including cuffs on both wrists, an embellished belt, and a white clutch. I love everything bar the skirt. I almost wish the jacket was long enough to pass off as a dress.
