February 25, 2013 Runway To Red Carpet

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior Couture – 2013 Oscars


Best actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence stunned as she made her way down the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The young ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress wore Dior Haute Couture for her big night, and the dress made a big impact.

By choosing to wear a delicate Chopard necklace down her back, Jennifer is undoubtably restarting a back jewelry trend, and I’m eager to see how quickly it takes off.

Jennifer’s flawless skin and subtle smokey eyes keep her makeup look fresh and young, which keeps the voluminous dress from aging her. I have a feeling people will be crying ‘wedding gown’ on this one, but I think it’s stunning and perfectly apropos for the occasion.

    I don’t really like this.

  2. Derro February 25, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    I’m not the biggest fan of this silhouette, but if you’re going to do it you might as well do it right, which is what JLaw did! BDOTW IMO.

    I love it she looks spectacular this was defiantly her moment

  4. Amy February 25, 2013 at 10:04 am #

    it’s pretty but not memorable. Anyway who cares? She WON!!

  5. Kat February 25, 2013 at 9:41 am #

    It needed more color. I wish she opted for a ruby necklace rather than that bland long diamond one.

  6. Andy February 25, 2013 at 9:37 am #

    I dont mind the design of the gown but I hate the heaviness of the material. It looks like a doona.

  7. ISIK MATER February 25, 2013 at 7:24 am #

    Hate it!! It’s wedding material and made her fall as expected :/

  8. Ericka February 25, 2013 at 6:55 am #

    Not a fan. Reads very bridal to me. Pretty yes, but boring princessy bridal.

  9. Aline February 25, 2013 at 6:02 am #

    If the dress making her fall down during her big moment wasn’t enough to prove to her that signing with Dior was a mistake I swear to God I don’t know what else is.

    But anyway, yeah, too bridal.

    I like her hair and makeup, though.

    • Kathy February 26, 2013 at 3:08 am #

      I don’t think it was her dress that made her fall (she’d been walking in it perfectly beforehand). It was probably a combination of nerves, excitement, and rushing to get up the steps to accept her award.

      • Kathy February 26, 2013 at 6:27 pm #

        On second thought, it was indeed the dress that caused her to fall. (That’s not to say she couldn’t have collaborated with another designer and worn a ball gown with a huge skirt that wasn’t Dior)

  10. the ogre February 25, 2013 at 5:52 am #

    i think she looked great! where else would you wear it other than the oscars (maybe cannes)??? but i think the necklace was unnecessary. the rest of her is gorgeous. the craft is a beauty. everyone looked so good on TV!!!YAYIEEE!

  11. Matlock February 25, 2013 at 5:50 am #

    Lame, it’s basically the same dress that she wore at GG, but in another color. And a i hate the cut of these dresses in the hip area.

  12. Tiffany February 25, 2013 at 5:34 am #

    I am not a pink person but I LOVE this dress. It is such a Hollywood princess dress. I love her hair and makeup. Her necklace is perfect. A+ best dressed!

  13. Lashae February 25, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    Dress is good from the waist up. The bottom is so overwhelming and ugly. This Dior/Lawrence collaboration I’m still not feeling.

  14. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 4:33 am #

    Oh my God, I can’t believe she wore the gown which I had in my mind for her ever since I watched the Dior Couture show. Seriously, I thought she will wear another ill fitted Dior gown, but the fact that she wore this heavenly piece, really made me jump! 🙂
    She looks fantastic. I loved the gown since I first saw it on the runway and I love it on Jennifer. I have no complaints, this has to be one of her best looks ever.

    • Camille February 25, 2013 at 5:10 pm #

      Ditto! This was my pick for her from the collection and I’m so happy she chose it. I thought she was perfect, young, lovely and glowing. Hair and makeup were perfect, and I actually loved the delicate necklace draped down her back. One of her best looks ever indeed!

  15. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 3:56 am #

    I like it from the waist up. Not a fan of that voluminous bottom part.

  16. taksi February 25, 2013 at 3:44 am #

    It feels like it’s missing a little something, may be a bolder lip colour?

  17. Fromchi-town February 25, 2013 at 3:05 am #

    She looks beautiful no doubt…but it’s not a look that would be memorable. She is young, she is the girl of the moment… She shud be wearing something more special. Her partnership with Dior is not my cup of tea.

  18. Luella February 25, 2013 at 2:17 am #

    So stunning!! How much does the dress retail for?

  19. Luella February 25, 2013 at 2:04 am #

    I love this dress!!! How much do you think it retails for?

    • Derro February 25, 2013 at 1:50 pm #

      It’s haute couture – it doesn’t retail for anything haha

  20. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 2:02 am #

    It took me a little while to warm up to this but I really like it!! I do hate the back jewellery, but the dress is stunning and so are the earrings, updo, and clutch. Go JLaw!! 😉

  21. Mol February 25, 2013 at 1:51 am #

    So far, my second favorite. She looks lovely, innocent and the details on the dress are magical. The Dior moment came together for her here without a doubt.

  22. Prudence February 25, 2013 at 1:41 am #

    I will nver cease to say this ( until this collab dies of course) but this collab is aweful. This dress would look fab in an editorial but horried on a red carpet. I’m missing her calvin klein red dress perfection.

  23. Betelgeuze February 25, 2013 at 1:29 am #

    I really like it. A bit predictable, but thankfully the dress looks much better on Jen than it looked on the runway model. Love the hair and makeup and I absolutely adore the necklace – I just wish she was more of a diva and properly showed it off. When I first saw her on the online broadcast I thought pouffy and pretty enough, but as I noticed the delicate necklace hanging down her back, that’s what made the look for me.

  24. Emmeline February 25, 2013 at 1:26 am #

    This is the first time I’ve really loved her in Dior. The backwards necklace looks great.

  25. TeaAtTwo February 25, 2013 at 1:23 am #

    She looks very pretty and elegant and is her best gown look of this award season but this gown is probably what everyone predicted she would wear for tonight.

  26. Elise February 25, 2013 at 1:23 am #

    More than the dress (the bodice remarks her curves in a perfect way), it’s her face the key of her look. She looks relaxed and happy, in other events her face was completely different and was conditioning the look for bad. She is so beautiful here that I don’t mind so much the combo jennifer-dior should end asap.

  27. jessicamarantelli February 25, 2013 at 1:21 am #

    I LOVE Jennifer Lawrence in this Dior… it took my breath away when she came on to the E red carpet. I cant wait to see her on the stage and with another perfect accessory added to this look…his name is Oscar.

    • jessicamarantelli February 25, 2013 at 5:25 am #

      …and despite a fall up the stairs (in case i get introuble ………Spoiler Alert ) ….
      she walked away best dressed on the night with the best bit of bling(Oscar) that you could want. I am so happy for her. Just loved SLP and love her in this gown.

  28. anjos February 25, 2013 at 1:14 am #

    One word: bridal.

  29. justme February 25, 2013 at 1:13 am #

    She looks pretty.
    But this isn’t exciting. Too much neutral colours on the red carpet for my taste.

  30. Sharade February 25, 2013 at 1:06 am #

    I absolutely love this look ! She is gorgeous !

  31. arang February 25, 2013 at 1:04 am #

    I like this. It’s sweet without being sugary. The color and shape flatters her. The hair, makeup, and jewelry are lovely. She looks her age. I could wish for a little more pop, but this is good. She looks lovely.

  32. zineb February 25, 2013 at 1:03 am #

    shocked coz people magazine predicted that she would wear this dress ! they got it right for once!

    • jessicamarantelli February 25, 2013 at 1:24 am #

      There werent many Dior looks left from this collection so it wasnt hard to predict…especially after my favourite (and I believe FC’s) was worn by Marion Cotillard at the Bafta’s. We all knew she was going in Dior and I love this look.

  33. zineb February 25, 2013 at 1:02 am #

    shocked coz people magazine predicted that she would wear this dress ! they got it right for once !

  34. Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 1:01 am #

    Too bridal and mature for her.

  35. Mandy February 25, 2013 at 12:59 am #

    Very predictable, i think almost everyone guessed that she would wear this gown. That being said she looks lovely, the fit is perfect. Stunning.

  36. moja31 February 25, 2013 at 12:57 am #

    She looks pretty enough, but I still maintain that her partnership with Dior is misguided. All of her less than successful red carpet turns have been in their contractually obligated gowns, even her ads were underwhelming. I love her, but she doesn’t have the necessary presence to work Dior Couture the way Marion and Charlize do.

  37. TL February 25, 2013 at 12:57 am #

    Flawless! Stunning and elegant. Love it especially her hair and makeups.

  38. jones19 February 25, 2013 at 12:57 am #

    Finally a Dior that I like on her. It’s not bridal at all IMO. Love the back necklace!

  39. Ramsay February 25, 2013 at 12:56 am #

    Yes it’s a superb gown – grand, gorgeous, bold – the jewellery is special too – but I don’t think she pulls it off – she’s too young, her smile is very innocent to pull this off – she can’t, maybe Charlize could’ve pulled it off (sure she could) and I think this gown requires someone whose looks are that exceptional to really show off – I’m sorry but as it stands, this gown is wearing her and not the other way around – and I cannot see J Law’s personality underneath – in some ways I don’t think there is much fit between her and Dior

    • Foteini P. February 25, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

      well said!

  40. vicky February 25, 2013 at 12:55 am #

    You’re right, my first thought was “too bridal”.
    Like it from the waist up. The rest doesn’t excite me…

    • Alina February 25, 2013 at 4:23 pm #


  41. Christine February 25, 2013 at 12:54 am #

    Wow, so gorgeous. Tired of the nude color but she looks phenomenal. Great choice for the big day!

  42. Lara February 25, 2013 at 12:54 am #

    Hated it… Awful!

    • S-R February 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

      I don’t fancy this look either. I simply don’t get why everyone if falling head over heels for this look. WAIT… I’m sensing a Jennifer falling head over heels word play in there somewhere.

  43. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 12:54 am #

    I have a feeling that this will be divisive, but I love it! It’s fun, fresh, youthful and classy. She is one of the few blondes who can carry off a very pale pink dress. I love the full skirt, and her diamonds are lovely–wearing the necklace backwards was an interesting choice. Actually the only part of this I’m not super fond of is that it’s strapless (I would loved it with off the shoulder cap sleeves). Other than that, I’m happy with Jennifer’s winning look!

  44. JGH February 25, 2013 at 12:53 am #

    This dress on anyone other than JLAW would have been meh but she brings a special something to it.

  45. gurlygurl February 25, 2013 at 12:53 am #

    I love it, it’s delicate, romantic and elegant. She looks perfectly pretty! I like the back jewelry!

  46. SilentVisitor February 25, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    She Looks great and is gorgeous….it looks a lot like a wedding gown maybe because of the color…… anyway better than her previous award appearances.

  47. ash February 25, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    Finally, the moment where JLaw nails Dior Couture on the head

    • Rashmi February 25, 2013 at 9:24 am #

      +1. FINALLLLLLYYY !!! Love it!

  48. Cindy February 25, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    She looks so stunning from the neck up, she could be wearing a trash bag and still look gorgeous.

  49. shontay February 25, 2013 at 12:50 am #

    I like this. It’s her princess moment without being too sweet. When she’s tried edgy, it has failed. Good job, Jenn.

  50. Ella February 25, 2013 at 12:48 am #

    I absolutely love this look. Absolutely love it. It’s elegant, feminine, she looks amazing…..yeah 😉 One of my top picks
