Amid the ongoing scandal of those leaked nude photos of celebrities stolen via their iCloud accounts online, Jennifer Lawrence is the first to speak out about her humiliation. The Hunger Games star poses for Patrick Demarchelier whilst taking a dip on location in the Hollywood Hills. Jennifer dons nothing but a diamond necklace on the cover with her hair styled effortlessly in tussled waves. Due to the media’s persistent coverage of the subject, Vanity Fair allows the cover image to do the talking and decided not the overcrowd the cover with text. Kudos!
The scandal doesn’t stop our forum members from having their say. “Of course she had to be topless in a pool, Vanity Fair I despise you sometimes, you are that obvious, and cheap!! And that is really not the best face shot of her I have ever seen, why not show her in control, confident, and powerful! None of it is conveyed in this cover!” shares Miss Dalloway.
“So last month we got Robert Downey Jr, one the biggest male movie stars at the moment, looking cheeky and suave and handsome without being sexualized on the cover or in the editorial. This month we get Jennifer Lawrence, one of the biggest female movie stars of the moment…completely nude and open mouthed. Never change Vanity Fair,” comments an unimpressed fee de foret.
Benn98 appears to be on the fence: “The composition looks unfinished, but I like it. Very surprised that Patrick shot this, it’s got a nice sheen to it which accentuates the tropical backdrop.”
TaylorBinque, however, likes what he sees and writes, “It’s a beautiful image. Thank god for Demarchelier! I think the photo along with the story, it’s too literal and I just don’t feel like she’s in control. Though, I’m a fan of hers and definitely not complaining. (She has the best team and she actually has a talent to go with it.)”
“She’s so unbelievably beautiful,” compliments Kite, a clear fan of the 24-year-old American actress.
