Amidst the excitement of Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar win on Sunday we'd almost forgotten that the actress is currently playing a starring role in the latest campaign for Miss Dior. The images were released last week and now there is a video where you can get a behind the scenes glimpse at the shoot which was masterminded by Dior women’s wear creative director Raf Simons, photographer Willy Vanderperre and stylist Olivier Rizzo. Wearing a tuxedo and a delicate French veil, Lawrence embodies power and femininity all at once and combined with the simplicity of the concept it's little wonder that our Fashion Director Susannah Frankel has described it as 'the most quietly beautiful campaign of the new season'.
While the stunning Dior Couture dress which Lawrence wore to the Academy Awards could be attributed to her fall as she stepped up to collect her Oscar, we can think of no better representative of strong young women for the Miss Dior brand to collaborate with than the Hunger Games star. And J-Law is clearly enamoured with the French label too. Known for her straight talking and honest interview style she explained ‘Dior represents beauty and strength in women. That’s how I feel when I’m wearing [his] clothes. They just make you feel so confident. I've always been a huge fan of Dior. Being part of something with such an incredible history is phenomenal'.
There are many reasons why we love Jennifer Lawrence (16 at the last count), but the way she has held herself in the last week, from laughing off mishaps to humbly accepting the praise of her peers, not to mention the fact that she's just bagged an Oscar, has ensured that her rising star is set to soar in the coming year.
