Jennifer Lawrence: style recap

Jennifer Lawrence stole our hearts as the beleaguered daughter of a meth cooker in the darkly enthralling film Winter’s Bone. It was clear this girl could act. But it wasn’t until she stepped on the red carpet at last year’s Oscars that she showed us her other side: she can dress, too.

Since then, Lawrence has regularly wowed us with her daring style selections. She’s not afraid of a statement gown, glamorous makeup, or a quick hair-color change. Nor does she mind showing off her amazing bod, while never straying to the wrong side of risky.

Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite looks that Jennifer has rocked in the past year. With the Hunger Games coming out this Friday, we’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of this fashion-forward starlet!

In one of her first major appearances for Winter’s Bone – last years Golden Globes — Jennifer chose this electric pink cut-out number by Oscar de la Renta.

Who knew the scraggly West Virginian she played in her breakout role could transform into a Baywatch-esque bombshell? Jennifer did her first Academy Awards right, and caught the world’s attention in a minimalist, head-turning Calvin Klein number.

Jennifer loves red… and a bit of architecture. This sculpted Miu Miu silhouette is fun, and flattering.

We wonder, has Jennifer met a body-con dress she didn’t like? Doubt it. Here, she rocked a curve-hugging navy sheath and a new hair color for an appearance on David Letterman.

While most budding stars might shy away from wild fashion choices, Jennifer’s not afraid to play —  like she does here with this fantastical Viktor & Rolf cut-out piece.

Once again, the girl loves to show some skin, as with this amazing Tom Ford zipper dress —  but the sexiness is balanced by a long silhouette, demure heels, and youthful makeup. Perfection.

 

 

 

style envy: Elizabeth Banks

 With the return of 30 Rock tonight, we’re most excited to see our favorite funny girl again. Not Tina Fey or Jane Krakowski – though we love them too – but the only woman who can truly steal a scene from Alec Baldwin: Elizabeth Banks. We’ve been fans of Elizabeth since her campy debut in Wet Hot American Summer, when she showed us that she wasn’t afraid to be silly (or sloppy – remember that make out scene with Paul Rudd?) With roles in everything from the 40 Year Old Virgin to Spider Man, she’s proved herself a versatile and ever-hilarious actress – and she’s equally dynamic on the red carpet.

This girl isn’t afraid of making a statement with stunning colors or unique silhouettes. Whether in a drop-dead-gorgeous chiffon Versace or a cut-out, modern take on the flapper dress, Elizabeth always stands out in the usual sea of safe, neutral-toned shifts (usually doing so with a bright smile and a dirty joke.)

By pairing her fashion-forward choices with simple, pretty hair and makeup, she also avoids looking too over-the-top. And with the fabulous Effie Trinket as Elizabeth’s latest character inspiration, we can’t wait to see what she’ll rock on the Hunger Games tour.
