UPDATE: Jennifer Lawrence has been hitting red carpets around the world this week on the promo tour for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - but the outfit that's caused the most stir is undoubtledy the sheer Christian Dior gown she wore to the LA premiere on Monday. We gave the look our seal of approval, but the actress has revealed that she felt uncomfortable flashing so much flesh in the see-through number.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, the 23-year-old said, 'I think any time a girl has to show her thighs, it's never going to be her favorite look'. See, she's just like us. But that doesn't mean she didn't love the gown - she'd just rather seen it on somebody else. 'I loved it, I loved the dress -- if someone else wore it,' she said. 'It's hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and [like it].' We hear ya, J-Law.

Watch Jennifer talk about the dress in the interview below...

19 November: Sheerly Shocking? Jennifer Lawrence Flaunts It In Dior Gown

The star holding the best-dressed mantle this month? Surely Jennifer Lawrence. The blonde beauty is busy promoting 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire', treating us to red carpet looks galore, and her latest stop was the L.A premiere in California last night. Ever the loyal brand ambassador, Jen sported a magnificent gown from Christian Dior's Autumn Winter 2013 Couture catwalk featuring a dramatic black-and-grey skirt nipped in by a black belt. Ooh la la! But what's caused most gasps here at Grazia HQ is all that sheer-ness.

The sheerly-there look has – despite the pitfalls - been one of the most popular red carpet looks of late so it was only a matter of time before Jen joined the gang and you can't fault her confidence for thinking outside the box. But when it comes to high fashion stakes, sheer fabrics are right up there. Get it right and you’ve nailed a sexy but elegant look, but get it wrong – which let’s be honest is more often than not the case – you’ll not only have flashed your flesh to the world, but you’ll also look low-rent. So how did dear Jen fair?

Well, rather than letting it all hang out and flashing too much flesh, the starlet wore a black (much better than nude) bodysuit that harks back to the femininity of the '50s. There'll be no lady garden mishaps or bottoms hanging out here, thank you very much. What's more, the optical-illusion-esque fabric of the dress is much edgier than lashings of lace. The minimal accessories and subtle jewellery also aid in the overall chicness while that awesome new pixie crop packs an edgy punch. You know what they say, if you've got it, flaunt it and Ms Lawrence has 'it' in spades.

Has Jennifer taken a tip from fellow actress and style maverick Kristen Stewart, we wonder? There's no doubt Kristen's a devotee of the sheer trend and has worn everything from transparent frocks to lace jumpsuits in pursuit of the perfect sexy-meets-edgy result. But while K-Stew's style has set many a teeth on edge, J-Law has that laissez-faire attitude which makes it that much cooler.

But what say you? Are you a fan of the sheer trend? Do let us know below...
