Spotted: Jennifer Lawrence draped in a Jason Wu velvet dress for the premiere of her new movie X-Men: Days Of Future Past in NYC. At first I tres loathed this dress but actually, the more I look at it, the more I like it. That never happens.
But, leave it to J.Law to surprise me. While spaghetti-strap crushed velvet dresses are just so 90s–and you know I loathe all things 90s, darlings–I have a feeling that this gown looked better IRL than it photographs, and for that fact I give her a pass. From the neck down, at least. I’m not at all feeling her hair, are you? And while the accessories–what few there are–do coordinate with the dress, they don’t make enough of an impact and feel like an afterthought.
But am I being nit-picky? Does Jen look luxe or is this throwback style a serious misstep?
