Jennifer Lawrence is Bringin’ the Style

25 Mar

Everyone is sooooooo excited about the Hunger Games recent Box office takeover, but I can’t help being excited about Jennifer Lawrence’s red carpet glamour!  (The movie was excellent by the way.) The 21 year old’s style evolution is off to a very good start if I do say so myself. Here are some pictures of her all glammed up, starting with the first time I had ever seen her  mastering understated elegance in that simple yet sexy red dress on the Oscar red carpet.

Winning a CFDA Fashion Award is the highest and one of the most coveted honors one can receive in the fashion industry. I’m rooting for Simon Spurr for Menswear , Marc Jacobs and The Row (a tie of course) for Womenswear and Alexander Wang for Accessories to take home Trova (yes the award itself has a name). I’m also pretty excited about Johnny Depp getting the fashion Icon award for his super cool eclectic style.
