Jennifer Lawrence, star of box-office hit The Hunger Games, debuted her new look at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Louisville, Kentucky native attended the red carpet premiere of her latest feature, director David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, showing off her stylish new brunette hairstyle to everyone in attendance. For those who have been following Lawrence’s career since her stint on The Bill Engvall Show, the actress’ stunning transformation should come as a surprise.
Yahoo! Movies remarked that her ensemble is likely to draw just as much attention as her new look. In addition to the revamped hair, Lawrence sported a black and red Christian Dior Haute Couture gown, a piece she complemented with a pair of black Dior shoes.
Silver Linings Playbook — which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Anupam Kher, Chris Tucker, Julia Stiles, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham, and Dash Mihok — is the latest project from Three Kings filmmaker David O. Russell. Billed as a dramedy, the film explores the friendship that develops between a widow (Lawrence) and a former psychiatric patient (Cooper). The pair will also co-star together in Susanne Bier’s Depression-era drama Serena.
If reviews are to be believed, then Silver Linings Playbook is sure to be a critical darling when it arrives in theaters this November. Bryan Davis, a “Super Reviewer” at Rotten Tomatoes, said:
“Bradley Cooper can do no wrong. This film looks fun, fresh and vibrant. Add a little Robert DeNiro some Jennifer Lawrence and a dash of Julia Stiles, and you have the makings of what could be a good time at the movies.”
The folks at Deadline take their love of the film a bit further, stating that the picture could earn its cast a few Oscar nominations.
