Jennifer Lawrence prioritized comfort over looks on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, wearing a glamorous custom-made red Dior evening dress with simple pumps.
The 32-year-old Oscar winner walked the red carpet for the premiere of the French film Anatomy of a Fall and although her footwear received a lot of criticism, as the Cannes festival has a strict dress code that prohibits shoes without heels, fashion critics praised her luxurious outfit and a diamond Dior necklace that matched French glamour.
And although the actress, otherwise the face of fashion brand Dior, wore casual summer footwear for the premiere of Anatomy of a Fall, she wore red heels for the premiere of the documentary Bread and Roses on the same day.
The American star signed on as a producer for the documentary film about the life of Afghan women under the resurgence of the Taliban.
And although fashion critics were not exactly lenient with Jennifer’s clothes, many users of social networks praised the actress’ more relaxed approach.
“Jennifer wears OPANKA! I love how she shows her midriff against the sexist dress code,” wrote one of the commenters on Instagram.
Jennifer Lawrence is not the first star who (willingly or unwittingly) stepped outside the strict shoe code at Cannes. In 2018, it is Kristen Stewart in protest against the decades-old rule, she took off her heels and walked the red carpet barefoot.
In Cannes this year, they also stood on the edge of overly colorful creations and, among other things, rejected a journalist from Vogue magazine by Zach Weiss, who wore a garish orange outfit instead of sticking to black.
