Aside from the odd Christian Dior handbag campaign, there’s been a startling lack of Jennifer Lawrence on the fashion circuit. Amazingly, Jennifer only appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour in 2016, but now Vanity Fair has tapped the actress for its annual Holiday Issue. In true Peter Lindbergh form, Jennifer looks every inch the silver screen goddess wearing a figure-enhancing and delightfully festive red Christian Dior dress in the cinematic shot.
“Yikes, it looks like the Italian version of Vanity Fair. Not a bad shot, but so budget and amateur. This is Jennifer’s sixth VF cover, three of them were for the Hollywood edition, the rest all OG. Quite an accomplishment,” pointed out Benn98.
“I expect better from Lindbergh, but perhaps his black and white imagery is too artsy for a Vanity Fair cover?” asked a disapproving kokobombon.
Sharing the same attitude was tigerrouge, writing, “The body of a screen goddess, the face of a college student. It looks like they ran out of glamour once they reached her neck.”
“It’s same old song but still good for December cover,” reasoned narcyza.
Also feeling ambivalent toward the cover was t-rex: “Looks great, but the text takes away a lot.”
Anna147 wasn’t exactly jumping for joy either. “The dress on the cover is super-gorgeous! Otherwise, it is really quite forgettable,” she stated.
But not everyone disapproved. “Classic, beautiful Lindbergh! All I thought when I saw Jennifer was ‘are you kidding me?’ – how stunning can she get? Her body is perfection! I like the cover, the styling. It feels like classic fashion and advertising to me (like the old Donna Karan ads that were cinematic). I love glamour for the holiday season,” raved a delighted iriswills.
