Jennifer Lawrence, most known for her role in the Hunger Games movies, is said to be extending her contract with Dior. The actress reportedly signed a three-year contract for $15 million.
According to the Examiner, the 23-year-old actress is the face of the Miss Dior campaign. The Telegraph went on to say that Lawrence first signed with the French fashion ouse in 2012, though she did not appear in her first campaign until February 2013. Lawrence has since been seen in a Dior gown almost every time she steps on the red carpet, even though many don’t believe the couture gowns are really her style.
In fact, Jennifer Lawrence received quite the backlash from fans for her white strapless gown that she worn the night of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. The common consensus that night seemed to be that Lawrence looked like she was wrapped up in bedding and strapped together. People then decided to make their own versions of the dress at home and got a kick out of the twitter reaction as the hashtag #Lawrencing began to trend.

While it would seem that both Jennifer Lawrence and Dior have tried to keep the new contract on the down-low, it doesn’t seem to be working. According to E! News a source has confirmed that “the Hunger Games star has just extended her contract with the high-profile fashion house, committing for an estimated three more years to the tune of approximately $15 million in compensation!”
While some seem very ecstatic about Lawrence’s new contract with Dior, others seem to believe that the actress would be better off without it. While critics have supported her look in many of Dior’s beautiful gowns, just as many, if not more have begun to criticize her saying that the Dior look just isn’t flattering to her overall look.
Do you think Dior and Lawrence go hand in hand? Or are you one of the many critics that believe Dior isn’t doing Jennifer Lawrence justice?
