The 360 Degrees of Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Catching Fire’ UK Premiere Dress

Today was a big day for Jennifer Lawrence. Mainly because it was the red carpet debut of her super-new, super-short pixie cut. OK, also because today was the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in London. You know, small details. But while the world was waiting with bated breath to see how J. Law would style her freshly cut ‘do (answer: slicked back), it was her Christian Dior gown that really held the public’s gaze. (Those metallic, midnight blue Kurt Geiger pumps aren’t half bad either.)

From the front, the white silk satin gown, which Jennifer plucked from Dior’s Couture Fall 2013 collection, looked relatively conservative: floor-length, boat neck and sleeveless. The waist was ever-so-slightly gathered and juuust barely helped define her waist in an otherwise seemingly shapeless frock. TBH, though, we could care less about the form of the dress because that multi-colored confetti apron on the front of it is SO SPARKLY. OOOH. SEQUINS. RAINBOW SEQUINS.

Upon further inspection, there’s actually a LOT more to J. Law’s dress than meets the initial eye. It’s, like, really detailed. Let’s take a look at all its finer points, shall we?

Well, would you look at that. There’s a cape! Or at least a drape. And her pixie isn’t just swept back—it has a pretty dramatic side-part to it which makes for a baby bouffant.

And we’ve got skin! That’s a sneaky little side cut-out there, J. Law.

OHHH. So, it’s definitely not a full-on cape, but it’s at least a one-shoulder cape or something. All that delicate draping at her lower back is pretty. And it’s got a slit in the skirt and hold up—exactly how much bare back are we talking about here?

Gotcha. A LOT of bare back. And that single-shoulder cape-drape has an asymmetrical edge to it. DRA-MA.

What do you think of Jennifer Lawrence’s surprisingly detailed Dior dress?
