Jennifer Lawrence cemented her status as an adorable klutz when she fell up the stairs on the way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress. But her televised tumble was somehow also kind of graceful and gorgeous, wasn’t it? Tumblr user i-nsan proved that point by re-envisioning J.Law’s embarrassing moment as a striking ad for Christan Dior, designer of beautiful, if easy-to-trip-on gowns. Don’t be surprised if you see this in next month’s Vogue. [Tumblr]
Because she isn’t busy enough winning awards, acting and generally being pretty awesome, Jennifer Lawrence took on yet another role–that of the new face of Dior’s Miss Dior handbag. The ads were shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo. And doesn’t Miss Lawrence look divine? [WWD]
Isabel Lucas is a regular freakin’ fashion plate, but that doesn’t exempt her from falling victim to a textbook case of runway looks not translating well in real life. This minidress seemed paler, floatier, more ethereal when it was marched down the Christian Dior catwalk back in September; photographed on Isabel at the opening of Dior’s new Sydney store, the bright colors and reflective material just kind of, well, flop. Maybe it has something to do with the Aussie actress’s super-tan complexion, or the harsh lighting of paparazzi flashbulbs, or both. Regardless, Isabel deserves points for trying — that is one difficult dress.
I am way too old to readily admit this, but I still harbor a magpie-like inclination towards particularly sparkly temporary tattoos. Oh, they sell $2 packs of glitter dragons at the Asian convenience store on the corner? Well, I’m probably going to buy some and put them on my body. Also, I can’t find anything about this on the Internet so there is a good chance it no longer exists and nobody will ever believe me, but when I was a kid they came out with these Band-Aids that were, like, pictures and shapes of animals? Did this ever happen? Anyway, they ruled and once I went to the beach covered in them, and nobody wanted to play with me because they thought I had a communicable disease of the flesh. Whatever, assholes!
That’s probably why I’m feeling compelled to purchase these stupid expensive 24-karat gold leaf Dior temporary tattoos. Absolutely not under any circumstances do I need them, but they look so shiny, and wouldn’t that be the perfect climax to my lifelong fake tattoo affinity? Do you think I should get drunk and order them, then lose my shit when I see the charge on my card and realize what I’ve done? Probably! [Nordstrom]
Kristen Stewart is all over the place right now promoting “Breaking Dawn: Part 2,” and given her newly minted sartorial risk-taker status (seriously, girlfriend is really going for it these days), we are just full of trampire fashion fodder. (I say that in an endearing way. J’aime K. Stew.) Her latest look is this chromed highlighter yellow Dior minidress — it hasn’t appeared on the runway, which is all the proof we need to believe that Raf Simons cut this especially for Kristen. Roughly translated into plain English from fashion world vernacular: “You are a big fucking deal.” The “Twilight” starlet finished off the neon look with a pair of patterned black-and-white pumps, complete with spiked ankle straps (which, it’s worth noting, she loved so much she wore them to a Spanish talk show appearance earlier in the day). Personally, I’m erring on the side of this look being so wrong it’s right. What say you?
I’m pretty much apathetic in the face of Photoshop. It’s an annoying (and undeniably rampant) practice for sure, but at this point I’m just like, “duh, nobody looks like that.” It’s ridiculous! But if there’s one variety of photo-altering that really, truly baffles me, it’s in the case of beauty advertisements. Are we seriously supposed to look at an ad and say, “Wow, that foundation looks great, I want to try it,” when the model has not only been subjected to hours of professional hair and makeup but has also been Photoshopped to the point of no recognizable human features?

Jennifer Lawrence: I love her in that “I want to be BFFs with you” kind of way. Here she is all dolled up for the latest Miss Dior ads.
Last year’s anti-Semitism scandal saw John Galliano ousted unceremoniously from both Christian Dior and his own eponymous label, but there are two sides to every story, which may have something to do with why the besmirched former creative director is now suing the fashion house for the grand sum of $18.8 million.
