Jennifer Lawrence has channelled her inner Angelina Jolie in a plunging black dress with a daring thigh split.

The Oscar-winning actress chose a figure-hugging dress with embellished straps for a photocall for her new film Red Sparrow.

The frock echoes one worn by Jolie to the Oscars in 2012, when she posed on the red carpet flashing her right leg.

The dress is also reminiscent of the Versace safety pin gown famously worn by Elizabeth Hurley to the premiere of Four Weddings And A Funeral in 1994.

Lawrence plays a ballerina turned Russian operative in the new film, which is an adaptation of the book of the same name.

The film reunites her with Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence, who joined her at the photocall alongside castmates Jeremy Irons, Joel Edgerton and Matthias Schoenaerts.
