Jennifer Lawrence at X Men New York premiere

Jennifer Lawrence in Jason Wu


Jennifer Lawrence is the latest celeb to get on board with the '90s slip dress trend (see Kate Moss, Zoe Kravitz for more), opting for a midnight blue maxi with spaghetti straps for the New York premiere of her movie X Men: Days of Future Past.

While we've been gearing up to see J-Law in a string of Dior dresses for the promo tour of her new movie, she's gone and surprised us all by wearing a Jason Wu creation instead. And who else but Jennifer could make crushed velvet look this cool again?

The Oscar-winner also expertly showed how to deal with hair in that difficult in between stage, by wearing her grown out pixie cut in a sleek chignon with a severe side parting. A pair of Ana Khouri earrings was all the jewellery J-Law needed to complete this slinky look.

Jennifer's co-star and boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, also looked dapper at the premiere, but the two took to the red carpet separately. But with the promo tour just beginning, we're sure we'll get a glimpse of the two of them together soon...
