Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of ’W.’

At this point in our lives, we’re all used to seeing Jennifer Lawrence and her pixie on red carpets and making other assorted appearances. What we hadn’t seen—until now—was the super-short chop on the cover of a magazine. Her InStyle cover hit newsstands right after the big snip, but the photo was taken when she still had her long bob (lob). The Movie Issue of W magazine was just released and Jennifer’s cover is one of several featuring stars who are set to dominate awards season, like Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o.
The cover, which was shot by Juergen Teller, is a far cry from her feathery W debut, where she channeled Black Swan. While that shoot was visibly staged, this one looks like Juergen just shouted, “JENNIFER!” and then snapped her with a disposable camera. I doubt any of those things actually happened, but that’s what it looks like: a picture you take of an unsuspecting friend using actual film, because you’re sooo retro.

While the cover features J.Law in a matching floral bralet and high-waisted shorts, the inside spread shows her in a plushy terrycloth bathrobe. She’s not wearing Dior or Prada, but a run-of-the-mill robe you get at, like, any hotel that isn’t a Best Western. She really is just like us! She enjoys simple luxuries like hotel bathrobes!
As far as the actual TEXT of Jennifer’s newest magazine feature, she explains in the excerpt on W’s website that she tripped at the 2013 Academy Awards because she was thinking about cake, which, TBH, I don’t completely buy. I think about cake 24/7 and rarely trip. I guess it’s a skill I’ve developed over time.
