Every so often, the land of celebrity is graced with a character — a magical human being who manages to hold on to their quirk and personality despite being in Hollywood's shiny limelight. For several years now, this has been J. Law, which is precisely why I was so excited to see Jennifer Lawrence at the 2015 Met Gala.
Why, you may ask? What does her quirk have to do with the MET? Well, due to the speculation that this year's Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala would run the risk of culturally appropriating Chinese culture (its exhibit labeled "China: Through the Looking Glass") I've been curious to see if and how J. Law would manage to stay true to her uniqueness (and perfect weirdness) while being respectful of Chinese fashion and culture. And, of course, she did not disappoint.
Lawrence has chosen to wear a Dior Haute Couture gown (but, of course) with a delightful tummy peekaboo and a floral bodice and train (perhaps an ode to the Chinese poppy plant?), and though the ensemble is spectacularly unique, I think few would argue that there's anything disrespectful or out of line about this look. In keeping to her traditional "funny girl chic" vibe, J. Law's choice of gown, darling up-do, and subtly bedazzled collar (chokers are back "in" after all) make her delightful persona shine. And I couldn't be more thrilled.
That floral train. That open back. That neckpiece. Oh J. Law, let me count the ways I love thee.
