With her bow and arrow-wielding Katniss cred AND her simultaneous rise as fashion’s newest darling, there aren’t many people who can hopscotch between glamour and The Hunger Games like Jennifer Lawrence. Sure, we all know that she’s got a killer instinct (literally) as the star of the blockbuster action franchise. But within the last few months the actress has also graced the covers of British VOGUE, W, and landed a super high fashion spread in VOGUE, proving that maybe she really CAN do it all. And now she’s taking it one step further, as the latest muse for Christian Dior. This morning WWD reported that the 22-year-old has been named the newest face for the label’s Miss Dior handbags, an honor previously held by fellow stars like Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard.
The Miss Dior handbag is one of Dior’s most notable carryalls, complete with a chain handle and a rectangular shape. As for being the face of such an iconic brand, Jennifer told WWD, “It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion.” But despite her new modeling role and designer connections (she attended the most recent Christian Dior Couture runway show), she’s still staying true to her tomboy roots. “I hate being overdressed so I normally find a way to ‘casualize’ anything too showy,” she said. And this, Jenn, is exactly why we love you.
