Jennifer Lawrence has been piquing the interest of the fashion crowd of late, thanks to a slew of stylish moments on the streets of New York City showing the actress seemingly embracing the “quiet luxury” trend: gone are her denim overalls and sneakers, replaced by chic monochromatic looks and stealth wealth labels like The Row.
So it only makes sense that a rare red carpet moment by the 32-year-old would grab attention, especially given her history of favouring eye-catching and ethereal gowns when attending industry events. Would Lawrence opt for something different to her usual attire?
The answer is yes. In lieu of puffy gowns and printed fabrics, Lawrence reached for a little black dress: the epitome of chic.
Wearing a velvet minidress by Versace that features a clinched waist and exaggerated skirt and shoulders, Lawrence looked the perfect mix of sophisticated and sexy.
The look debuted at the house’s autumn/winter 2023 show in LA last month and Lawrence opted to wear it exactly as it was shown on the runway: with a diamond choker flower necklace, sheer black tights by Calzedonia and princess pink heels with the Versace Medusa bow at the front.
She skipped on the patent gloves and matching bag and kept her eye makeup more simple than the models, but she matched her hair in a messy middle part styled behind her shoulders.
Lawrence’s red carpet moment happened at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas as part of CinemaCon, where she was presenting her new film, No Hard Feelings.
Lawrence both produced and starred in the comedy, alongside Andrew Barth Feldman, which premieres on June 23.
This project marks Lawrence’s gradual return to the spotlight after taking a step back to spend more time at home with her husband, Cooke Maroney, and their son, Cy. In an interview last year, the 32-year-old opened up about her new life as a mum, saying, “I mean the euphoria of Cy is just—Jesus, it’s impossible. I always tell him, I love you so much it’s impossible.“
