Style Crush: Jennifer Lawrence

With the 86th Annual Academy Awards rapidly approaching, we think it’s the perfect opportunity to honor one of our style crushes, Jennifer Lawrence. At the age of just 23, our girl is nominated for her third Oscar for her portrayal as Rosalyn in American Hustle. Haven’t seen American Hustle just yet? Well, you may remember Lawrence from her roles in box office hits such as X-Men: First Class (she showed off a perfectly toned blue body), Silver Linings Playbook (she got her mack on with Bradley Cooper and earned her very first Oscar), and, of course, The Hunger Games movies in which Lawrence not only kicks ass (literally), but also proves to the world that strong female leads in film are totally in. Her most recent major move? Homegirl killed it in Dior’s S/S 2014 campaign. Suh-woon.

Talented, sexy, successful, hilarious, and not to mention real… We could go on and on. So J. Law, if you’re reading this… We’re rooting for you, girl! But if you don’t take home that hunk of metal this time: A) You already have one waiting for you at home and B) we’ve got a spot on our couch with your name on it (and tons of junk food for you to scarf down with us). So we’d say it’s a win-win kind of sitch anyway.

Take a look below at some of our favorite J. Law moments in fashion:

And our top five favorite quotes from the funny girl herself:

1. On red carpet hunger: “I’m seeing you talk, and all I’m thinking about is me pissed that I didn’t get fries.” (to MTV at the 2013 Oscars)

2. On her “bouncing” assets: “I think people are fascinated with breasts that bounce. They are so used to seeing [fake ones]. People are confused [that mine bounce]! My breasts have a life of their own.” (The Sun)

3. On exercise: “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising’ – I want to punch people who say that.” (Glamour)

4. On the bowl of fan questions: “I thought it was gonna be food. It’s just… words.”

5. On how she’d describe herself: “Very well-rounded, and practically perfect.” (The Late Show With David Letterman)

What Celebrities Were the Worst Dressed at the Academy Awards?

Sure, nearly anyone can look decent at the Oscars with the assistance of a stylist, makeup artist, hairdresser, and an arsenal of assistants. However, it takes a special sort of celebrity to show up to the biggest event in the film industry and look questionable . Of course, we know that fashion is subjective and yes, we realize some of our choices are controversial, yet the following ladies made us shake our coiffed heads in disbelief, wonder, and occasionally all out shame. Curious as to who they are? Keep reading, darling.

1. Busy Phillips

Michelle Williams’ BFF,  Busy Phillips of Cougar Town, is notorious for playing wacky characters often bordering on the edge of nymphomania. Yet, this particular look demonstrates another sort of psychosis. Specifically, the bright peep-toe heels coupled with the lengthy blue earrings was daring, but as General Custer has shown us, bravery doesn’t always result in success. Oh, and as for the Dolce & Gabbana dress? Great cut, but the fabric looks like something you’d find at Wal-Mart in the bargain bin.

2. Sandra Bullock

Admittedly, we  feel like jerks mocking Sandra Bullock for anything whatsoever because she is America’s sweetheart. But, the fact remains that this Marchesa frock looks as if there are bejeweled zombie hands reaching for Bullock’s derriere and internal organs.

3. Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara’s ethereal beauty has been on full display this award season and trust us when we say that we adore how she stands out amongst the bevvy of blonde, tanned, and busty celebs who are typically on our radar. Yet, we’re sad to report that this Givenchy gown makes the twenty-six year old’s bust look as saggy as that of a centenarian who’s given birth to enough babies to result in double digit figures.

4. Sherri Shepherd

Perhaps you aren’t a fan of Sheri Shepherd for her insistence that the world may not be round, but we think we have discovered an equally grievous error: wearing a black bra underneath her plunging dress. By the way, despite some serious research we couldn’t figure out who designed this I Dream of Jeannie atrocity frock and as such, if you have an insider connection to the dark world of obnoxious TV hosts’ preferred designers drop us a line, okay?

5. Melissa Leo

We understand that at fifty-two Melissa Leo may not want to show off her guns. But, we suspect that this Reem Acra gown could be immensely improved by lopping off the awkward gold top. After all, the only person who can make a collared blouse work at the Oscars is the eternally sexy Sharon Stone.

So, what did you think of our list? Anyone we shouldn’t have added? How about anyone we missed?
