Jennifer Lawrence has just been named the new face of Miss Dior. The Hunger Games star will appear in the Spring/Summer 2013 Miss Dior handbag campaign starting in March 2013. It’s the first time she has partnered with a luxury brand.
She says in a statement, “It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion. I’m so excited to be working with the fashion house and wear the new creations by Raf Simons. His most recent haute couture and ready-to-wear collections glamorously capture the modern era at Dior.”
Simons is clearly impressed with the actress.
In his statement he comments, “Like the whole world I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence as a young action hero. I was, of course, struck by her unbelievable onscreen 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.”
Jennifer has been wearing Dior to many events lately. At the Toronto Film Festival one of her red carpet looks was a navy dress from the Christian Dior Resort 2013 collection.
