New York, United States: While shooting a photo call for her upcoming action spy movie Red Sparrow, Oscar-winning actress went to London press event wearing a bare-shoulder Versace gown with a plunging neckline during the high frigid winter days. Soon after the event, the media criticized her outfit and backlashed her for the same saying the choice is “utterly ridiculous”. Jennifer Lawrence did not remain silent after the controversy and backfired through social media post.
Jennifer Lawrence is famous for her fashion sense, but soon after wearing a revealing dress during London Press event ‘Jennifer Lawrence Wearing Revealing Dress In The Cold Controversy’ arose. The star used her Facebook to express her thoughts on the event.
“This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. Overreacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward,” Lawrence wrote. “It’s creating silly distractions from real issues.”
“Wow. I don’t really know where to get started on this “Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold” controversy. This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I’m going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice.”
She said it boldly, “ITS HER CHOICE AND REMINDS EVERYONE SHE CAN WEAR WHATEVER SHE PLEASES”
The event had her male costars Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Jeremy Irons and director Francis Lawrence present with her.
