Red carpet wrap: Worst, Jennifer Lawrence. Best, Berenice Marlhoe
Published 16/11/2013 | 01:00
In the week when she complained that "for some disgusting reason, young sex sells even more", Jennifer Lawrence showed that she wasn't just mouthing empty words. The 23-year-old certainly made an impact at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
We're pretty sure that she meant to hide her svelte figure underneath this ill-fitting, baggy Christian Dior dress with its crazy Smartie-like sequinned panel.
While, of course, we applaud a celebrity who really lives by the principles she espouses – even her spiky heels are really quite meh – really someone should tell the actress that sexy doesn't have to mean sleazy, and fitted can be chic, not cheap.
Ironically, that's a lesson that's probably wasted on the young. Sigh. The name's Marlhoe, Berenice Marlhoe and I'm taking my role as a sexy Bond girl very seriously. That's why I'm smouldering in red-hot lace clinging to every curve.
Ms Marlhoe clearly believes that life imitates art, and why shouldn't she when there's such gorgeous D&G fitted dresses to pour oneself into. It's not easy to work the red carpet on a cold winter's evening, but the former spy candy has got it right in this long-sleeved, high-necked dress that is just figure-hugging enough. We're impressed.
