Jennifer Lawrence is the new face of Miss Dior handbags. She’ll star in the Spring 2013 ad campaign, which will be released in March. The news doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as Jennifer sat front row at Dior’s A/W 2012 couture show. She wasn’t wearing a badge that said “new face of Dior”, but she may as well have. So why did Raf Simons go for Miss Lawrence? Is he also obsessed with The Hunger Games franchise? Explaining the partnership Raf said:
“Like the whole world I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence as a young action hero. I was of course struck by her unbelievable on screen presence in these ‘larger than life’ movies, but I was equally impressed by her powerful portrayal of more emotional and complex characters. Her youth and her classic beauty but also the feminine strength and complexity that she can portray at such a young age are for me very unique and very appealing.”
I can’t wait to see what Jennifer’s Miss Dior ads. However it does mean we’ll have to say goodbye to the line’s current “face”, the lovely Mila Kunis. She’s done a great job in the AW12 ads!
