Jennifer Lawrence is earning her title as one of the best dressed women in the world.

Fresh from a glamorous turn at the Venice Film Festival, the Oscar-winning actress (26) is hot on the promotional trail for her psychological horror film Mother! at the UK premiere in London on Wednesday night, championing this year's hottest trend - sheer.

Lawrence opted for a sheer chainmail-style gown by Atelier Versace for last night's black carpet, days after her show-stopping sheer Dior gown in Venice. Despite the fact that she and director Darren Aronofsky have been dating for nearly a year, the couple avoided being pictured just the two of them.

One person they had no qualms about posing with however was Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson, who also features in the dark film. Gleeson chose a custom Burberry suit and an interesting new moustache for the premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Meanwhile, the film itself has still divided critics and Lawrence said she enjoys projects that don't fit into a specific genre. "Those are the films that I like to watch, those are the films that I find interesting," she told the Press Association.

"Our reviews are just cracking me up, people either love it or they absolutely hate it and I think that is so cool, there is not one person that has walked out and (shrugged)."

The film proved to be more of an intense experience than she was prepared for, previously saying she had to "go to a darker place" physically and mentally in order to reach Aronofsky's vision, at one stage even dislocating a rib.

"The physical challenge wasn’t really that much, the birth was a lot of energy, but really the emotional demand was more than I have ever given before. That was a lot."

Aronofsky, who was nominated for a Best Director Oscar for 2010's Black Swan, praised his girlfriend's performance, hailing her as "a remarkable talent".

"She is just so deeply absorbed in her talent that she can turn any emotion out at any time so she did go pretty far, she ripped her diaphragm so it was very intense for her but it was an amazing thing to watch," he told PA.

"I hope people are really moved in every way possible."
