Jennifer Lawrence Sparks A Surge In Seventies-Style Clothes

EBay reports a massive increase in sales of Seventies clothes thanks to American Hustle

Jennifer Lawrence has sparked a surge in the sale of Seventies-inspired clothes, thanks to her role in the Oscar-nominated, American Hustle.

The film, also starring Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper is set in 1970s America, and as such, is filled with amazing 70s outfits provided by the likes of Halston, Diane von Furstenburg and Gucci. If you haven't already seen it (what have you been doing?), think navel-grazing necklines, big hair and plenty of gold jewellery.

It seems we're all a little smitten with J-Law's look in the movie, with sales of the iconic wrap dress, made famous 40 years ago by Diane von Furstenburg, rising by a massive 201%.

Gold bangles and stilettos also appear to subject to the American Hustle effect, with sales rising by 233% and 103% retrospectively.

eBay spokesperson, Laura Wilkinson-Rea says of the trend: 'It seems that American Hustle has inspired Brits to bring some iconic 70s style back into their lives. With over 27,300 listings of wrap dresses and 1,750 lava lamps currently on the site, eBay is the perfect platform for Brits to find their favourite 70's style.'

Given how amazing both Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams look in the movie, we're not surprised. We're totally bidding on some vintage Furstenburg right now.
