Since The Hunger Games movie franchise first took the world by storm in 2012, Jennifer Lawrence has been a red carpet must-see. She’s stylish, she’s talented, she’s hilarious and she always finds ways to make us love her even more.
In an essay she penned for Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny Letter, Jennifer called out the sexism in Hollywood. Jennifer said she was sick of having to find the “adorable way to say” things, like asking for equal pay for equal work. Good woman, Jennifer!
But as well as being a feminist icon, we have to admire Jennifer’s gorgeous red carpet style and her uncanny ability to pick out amazing dresses and outfits, so today we’re looking at three J-Law-inspired looks that will flatter your body and give you confidence. All in time to celebrate the release of Mockingjay Part 2 in Irish cinemas (in case you want to look super-glam while checking out a movie).
We all love a good jumpsuit from time to time. They make an edgy yet elegant alternative to dresses and you can find one to suit every occasion. This V by Very Tie Jumpsuit is a great choice for a night on the town. Glam it up with these Graduated Glitter Point Court Shoes from So Fabulous and this oversized Gold Chainmail Clutch.
Add some loose Lawrence-esque waves to your hair using this TRESemme Salon Shines Waves Wand. And to achieve J-Law’s smokey eye look, use this Black Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Liner along with a blend of this Night Grey Smoky Stories Eyeshadow palette.
For a look that would be perfect for a wintery formal event like a college ball, wedding or black tie work party, this Embellished Red Bandeau Maxi Dress from Little Mistress is perfect. It’s also somewhat similar to the strapless gown Jennifer wore to the Oscars last year. (for more budget friendly options, check out our red dresses which cost less than €50).
Accessorise your look with these stunning Paper Dolls Mesh Court Shoes, some vintage-inspired COAST Gatsby Earrings and this gorgeous Love-My-Soul Clutch Bag. To add extra va-va-voom to your up-do, use these BaByliss Curl Pods Heated Curlers. Finally, add on some classic red lips using this Big Cherry NYX Butter Lipstick.
Another look of Jennifer’s I loved was a black cut-out gown she wore to the Critic’s Choice Awards. For a more wearable (not to mention budget-friendly) option, go with this Black Lace Overlay Maxi Dress jazzed up with some beautiful accessories.
While you may not be Jennifer Lawrence (yet), you absolutely can steal her style!
