While other award shows just didn’t cut this year, the 2016 Oscars offered some glamour that we’ve all been craving this entire award season. There were definitely some unforgettable (and forgettable) looks that left us speechless on the red carpet.
Some peak moments to recap this year’s Oscars was: actress Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein’s teal beaded prom styled dress, Kerry Washington’s Atelier Versace half white and half black warrior dress, and Rooney Mara’s pale sheer, floral embroidered dress.
Fortunately, for the common folk sitting in front of the T.V. screen, these celebrities and many more made the 88th Academy Awards worth the watch. But what would a red carpet be in 2016, without the mention of Hollywood’s young and quirkiest leading ladies? Yeah, that’s right, it’s Jennifer Lawrence— a.k.a. J-Law.
Ever since she stepped onto the red carpet scene back in 2012 for her big Hunger Games debut, she’s managed to become an instant head turner, time and time again. At every award show she attends, J-Law makes every mouth just drop. Not sure what’s sexier though, seeing her make the best dressed list almost always or watching a young actress who doesn’t take herself too seriously.
Everyone in fashion knows by now that J-Law’s main go-to label for large events like these, have always been and always will be, classic Dior. And what’s not to love? She embodies the natural femininity that Dior designs have always offered to the world.
This time around, her black laced dress with unrefined edges gave just the right amount of balance. Lawrence’s purposely unfinished wide V-cut exposed neckline glowed magnificently against the black gentle piping details that held the dress in place.
People may call her boring for not mixing it up that often, but honestly if she’s consistently making the best dressed list, why would she change? Lawrence’s style represents that traditional Dior persona of a chic old-soul, except it’s 2016. She got to stick with what she knows best.
By consistently bringing us a sense of effortless sophistication and beauty from every angle, Lawrence minus well just be permanently kept on the best dressed list. I think she’s earned it, so long as she shows up in those one of a kind Dior gowns. J-law rules. Again.
