Style Icons

It’s no secret that everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence. She’s basically the quintessential girl-next-door with a little bit of sardonic humor. Her down-to-earth quality and her candidness have made her one of the most beloved young Hollywood stars of today. You just want to be her best friend! But even more than being extremely lovable and relatable, the girl can act. Having been in so many acclaimed movies like Winter’s Bone, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook to name a few. She is best known as Katniss Everdeen from Hunger Games, of course.

Her elegant and effortless style earns her a spot as one of my modern style icons. here are some of her best looks on and off the red carpet:


Red lips, red nails, red dress. J-Law understands the power and innate sexiness that comes with wearing a striking hue of red from head to toe. It’s also an excellent styling to temper all that red with a classic black oversized blazer coat and heels. 5f44c398c8c131796c864d9af75d0051

A floor sweeping overcoat elevated Jennifer Lawrence’s easy striped shirtdress. The dramatic silhouette and textured collar of the coat gives this day look a touch of fashion forwardness and a slight masculine dressing inspiration.


This white lace frock is modern romance personified. The ladylike material and fit-and-flare silhouette is always a great choice for red carpet events. The white lace makes it more evening wear appropriate, while the accents of black keep this frock closer to chic and farther away from saccharine territory.


A matching navy dress and blazer duo makes a strong case navy being the new black. Navy is as sophisticated a neutral as any, and is an excellent and more contemporary alternative to your go-to little black dress. The lower neckline is balanced by the tailoring of the blazer, but the ribbon belt cinched at the waist adds to the feminine allure of this ensemble.

If you’re looking to wow on the red carpet, opt for a little black dress that is off-the-beaten track. Instead of a standard cocktail dress, select a dress that is more tailored, just like this streamlined blazer dress that Jennifer Lawrence sports for her movie premiere. The absence of conspicuous accessories and the wavy long bob are perfect styling complements to the tailoring detail of this new LBD–the little blazer dress. main.original.585x0 (2)
