Jennifer Lawrence Proves That Lace and Menswear Can Coexist

Jennifer Lawrence has been making fashion headlines since she started getting her share of the limelight on red carpets in 2011, and she is making sure it stays that way.

While the headlines may not always be in her favor, fashion critics have not been all that hard on her (after all, ring up all the red carpet moments of even the biggest Hollywood celebrities today, and you’ll see that most, if not all, went through a pretty rocky start) since she is, after all, only 22 years old with a little over one year of experience with paparazzi frenzy since the release of The Hunger Games, the film that gave her the role that allowed her to break through Hollywood.

In interviews, the quick-witted actress occasionally shows that her seemingly overnight success has not quite sunk in, but she has definitely done a better job at faking it recently with her increasing number of thumbs-up-worthy red carpet moments. Jennifer was spotted outside the Christian Dior show at the Paris Fashion Week Men’s Spring/Summer 2014; she was effortlessly exuding chic nonchalance (yes, there’s such a thing) for the paparazzi.

Jennifer was spotted in none other than Christian Dior, being a patron of the brand for a number of her red carpet moments in the past three years. The actress sported a pair of charcoal wool pants from its Resort 2014 collection, which is not available for the general public yet. The wide-legged pants has a guipure lace detail running down one leg, echoing the gorgeous guipure top, and transitioning into two tones of blue. The other pant leg is pleated at the waist, allowing it to flow more dramatically than its counterpart. The wider pant leg also seems to have a pocket, which all purse-carrying women would surely appreciate, as shown in the picture below:

Because of its uniqueness, the gorgeous pair of Christian Dior pants could not be matched by any alternative that we could get our hands on. However, we conjured up some wide-legged finds anyway to ease our thirst until the release of the highly coveted collection.
