Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior – 2013 Met Gala

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior - 2013 Met Gala

Jennifer Lawrence looked like a vintage dream in Christian Dior on the Met Gala red carpet.

I honestly think the new face of Dior looks flawless top to bottom here, but it does make me chuckle just a little that she wore this to a punk-themed event.

The strapless, jewel-encrusted Dior gown is classically glamorous, and the black birdcage veil takes its elegance to another level.

Jennifer’s flawless porcelain skin, deep red lip and black-lined eyes are the perfect classic makeup for this timeless look.

What do you think?

    She looks good but boring.There is nothing punk about it.Btw,this is from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 RTW…the first piece to be worn from this collection if I aint wrong?

    Polished and retro elegance but a bit boring and out of whack with the theme. However,I do love the veil and make-up and the gif of her photobombing SJP made me laugh.

    The veil doesn’t add much to this look.
    Without the veil, the look would’ve been boring, overly conservative, and event-inappropriate. with it the look is still boring and conservative with the added bonus of looking slightly gothic
    Love the makeup though, although a more dramatic cat eye would’ve helped.

    she looked like she was attending a funeral.

    Gorgeous gown….wrong event

  7. Betelgeuze May 7, 2013 at 9:52 pm #

    Two things – a brown lipstick and a true punk studded bangle. That would make the look perfect. This way it’s just a sad prom queen.

  8. Melrose May 7, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

    Boring & lazy.

    It’s like she’s going to the SAG Awards.

  9. Liz May 7, 2013 at 7:15 pm #

    Really?! This is your favorite FC?? You clearly are not familiar with punk either. It’s very boring and not at all on theme. The only non-boring thing about it is the veil.

        Okay. Now that makes sense. Lol

  10. diana May 7, 2013 at 6:53 pm #

    best dressed of the night by far!!

  11. Kathy May 7, 2013 at 6:46 pm #

    She looks like she just stepped out of a Dior ad. This is very beautiful and put-together, but it’s not occasion-appropriate at all. Even disregarding the punk theme, it’s a bit of a head-scratcher. I have a easier time imagining this as a premiere or film festival look.

  12. Bee May 7, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

    Pretty, but I’m loathe to give her anymore praise because she totally missed the night’s theme, though she’s in good, sizable company.

  13. ADarlingOfIndustry May 7, 2013 at 4:50 pm #

    SNOOOOOZE!!!!!!!!!!! This look is a total a bore!

  14. tom May 7, 2013 at 4:44 pm #

    total yawn… i know she’s the face of dior…but i’m so done with the same silouette and neckline on almost everything she wears.

  15. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    Very 50s gothic, not punk. She looks beautiful, but the veil might be OTT.

  16. deango May 7, 2013 at 2:57 pm #

    The dress is look 18 of the Fall 2013 runway

  17. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

    It definitely reminds me of Emma Stone’s Alexander McQueen SAG look…I think that that had a better length and shoe combo. I’m not hugely pleased with Jen’s shoes, but the dress is lovely and I really like the veil. It’s a very good look! So ladylike and yet a bit edgy too.

  18. Solveig May 7, 2013 at 2:21 pm #

    I love her, but for some reason I don’t love this.

  19. dee May 7, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

    She looks lovely but not memorable.

  20. fromchi-town May 7, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    She looks amazing … no doubt about that, but looks like she is at the wrong event. And the dress looks like something we have seen on her before, there is nothing new and exciting.

  21. cristina May 7, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

    dont get me wrong. jennifer looks good. but how can this be your favorite when its not appropriate for the event? there’s nothing punk in this. just saying.

  22. Marko_M May 7, 2013 at 1:12 pm #

    This could (and should) have been so much more amazing. The only thing I love is the mini-veil, everything else is quite forgettable.

  23. Atiyya May 7, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    I LOVE the dress. The shoes are driving me bonkers because they make her look like a kid wearing a dress that she’s outgrown.

    C’mon. with Dior at your disposal you can do FAR better than this.

  24. Amy May 7, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    honestly I love Jlaw but this is just underwhelming. So boring!

  25. Rashmi May 7, 2013 at 11:34 am #

    The veil and the make up is only what I liked here, everything else screamed BORING!

  26. Jimmy May 7, 2013 at 10:12 am #

    I think she looks beautiful and I love her look but it is totally wrong for this event this year. The Gala had the strongest theme ever and her look is simply wrong.

  27. Emme May 7, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    Her shoes was too heavy, but overall she gorgeous

  28. Jai May 7, 2013 at 8:45 am #

    This is completely wrong for the event. But anyone forced to wear Dior to this was going to have that problem. Still, they could have worked with the dress maybe. But a veil and that ladylike red pout and hair? Ugh. Frankly, I hate it.

  29. Charlotte May 7, 2013 at 8:41 am #

    Beautiful but event unappropriate.

  30. Gabby M May 7, 2013 at 8:35 am #

    IDK. this just confuses me… so no.

  31. Ioana May 7, 2013 at 8:08 am #

    I was expecting worse from Jennifer-Christian Dior combo.

    This is acceptable. I think the make up and the veil take it to another level.

    • noo May 7, 2013 at 8:40 am #

      I agree. Personally I think dior does nothing special with her, and would rather see her wear calvin klein. but this time she kept with the proper make up and wore a nice dress so she looks nice!

  32. Aline May 7, 2013 at 6:48 am #

    Boring. Emma Stone did it better with an Alexander Mcqueen dress. Also, the veil gives too much of a funeral vibe. Ugh.

  33. Natalie May 7, 2013 at 6:21 am #

    Very pretty but it’s rather boring and lazy.

  34. Brazilian fan May 7, 2013 at 6:06 am #

    She is absolute beautiful,but as aways I have a little problem with dior girls,except Charlize theron,because all the girls wering the same look over and over again,please,she is beautiful but,as someone say before that dress is a little prom to me

  35. Tori May 7, 2013 at 6:02 am #

    Love it! Although I can’t help but think of Emma Stone at the Sags last year:

    • e May 7, 2013 at 10:35 am #

      Thank you for pointing that out! I was sure I had a strong case of déjà-vu with this dress.
      She looks pretty though.

    • Nat May 7, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

      That is what I thought too.

    • Kate May 7, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

      Great catch! I knew the whole look felt really familiar.
      I think look suits Emma more, though.

  36. Prudence May 7, 2013 at 5:55 am #

    THIS IS A FAVORITE OF YOURS????!!! FC, I AM MIND BOGGLED!!! She is at the wrong event…no punk at all??? this cannot be a fave !!!! I am bored to death by this look… if at least she looked good non punk…this girl and dior need to break up.

    • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2013 at 6:23 am #

      I did not write this post…

      • Prudence May 7, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

        what I’m confused?? someone else is posting for you now?

        • Kathy May 7, 2013 at 6:44 pm #

          Emily, Rachel, and FC were taking turns blogging through the event I believe

  37. Milla B. May 7, 2013 at 5:49 am #

    Surprise, Surprise. A ladylike-strapless-black dress. Thank you Raf. Thank you Dior. I wasn’t expecting anything like this. 🙁

  38. jas May 7, 2013 at 5:43 am #

    she is absolutely flawless

  39. Joy May 7, 2013 at 5:28 am #

    This is gorgeous and I love everything about it! However, I can’t help but think of Marion when I see this look. All I can think is that this tall blonde girl is imitating brunette, petite Marion’s style. Lovely look, but unfortunately that’s what I see.

    • Ariadne May 7, 2013 at 7:51 am #

      Agree with everything you said.

  40. Sanette May 7, 2013 at 5:27 am #

    I feel like it’s just one of many of her Dior dresses she’s worn recently. Nothing really memorable about it. I like the veil and the makeup though.

  41. Lyo May 7, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    Erm… I’ll say it again… Very pretty, very ladylike, and kudos for the attempted punk, close but no cigar.
    Maybe a little shorter, with better shoes, and an edgy bracelet.

  42. Christine May 7, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    Ok look but this is nothing special.

  43. TL May 7, 2013 at 5:21 am #

    Nothing punk, but she looks great

  44. Sammy C May 7, 2013 at 5:15 am #

    Yes Jennifer, yes.

  45. Stephanie May 7, 2013 at 5:12 am #

    It would have been perfect if not for the shoes 🙁

    • Mandy May 7, 2013 at 10:09 am #

      The shoes are too chunky for my tastes. I don’t know she does look nice, but im feeling her slip back into her boring/predictable phase.

      • Jess2 May 7, 2013 at 11:27 am #

        I agree ladies, the shoes aren’t a good choice. The dress, hair and makeup is beautiful but familiar and certainly not punk.

        • Lee Ann May 7, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

          I agree but maybe she chose them to give the look a less lady like and more punk (dior version) ?

  46. Kate May 7, 2013 at 5:10 am #

    I know I *should* like it because there’s nothing particularly offensive about it. But I don’t really care for it, in light of the truly great looks I’ve seen tonight.
    It’s a bit too “prom” for my taste.

  47. jrich May 7, 2013 at 5:10 am #

    Uma Thurman! I want to know what you think!

  48. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 5:09 am #

    She looks very beautiful and elegant, but there is really nothing punk about this look. I would’ve loved this more, had she wore it to a different event.
