COVER STORY: FEBRUARY 2017: JENNIFER LAWRENCE


Ever since she came onto our screens back in 2006, the funny, charismatic Jennifer Lawrence has given us every character that we could want within the frames of film and television. She's brought stories to life through the magic of fantastic storytelling and her formidable craft. From the bad ass shape-shifting Mystique from the X-Men franchise to a strong leader and role model, Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games trilogy or even a widow, Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook, she brings her A-game to each role, treating every unique and relatable character we've read about in books, we've seen on our screens, and whose stories, experiences and lives we have related to and fallen in love with, with passion, with dedication and with humanity. She's a big clown (which she herself has said in interviews) often joking around and playing tricks on set with fellow actors and actresses including James McAvoy (who stars alongside her in the X-Men franchise). But it's her humanity and relatability in which I personally find most heartwarming and lovable about her as an individual and as a woman, she has a positive outlook on life and refuses to change anything about who she is for anyone or for any part that she plays for that matter "I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner". A formidable and inspiring young woman who is very much a role model, not only for aspiring young actors and actresses but for all young people out there in the world, who want to bring fantastic stories to life, who want to sing, who want to play a character that they dream of playing in film or on stage and that will one day, aspire to be, in her very shoes.


The sheer, natural beauty she posses, has (quite rightly so) given her the role of also being the face of one of Paris's (if not one of the world's) most famous fashion houses: Dior. Lawrence starred in advertisements for their Autumn/Winter 2016 handbag campaign for the brand and has also worn a few of their breathtaking creations to some of the world's most prestigious events on the planet, including The Oscars (I have to say her trip over the gorgeous pastel pink Dior ensemble as she went to collect her Oscar for best actress, was comedy gold) "you guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing, but thank you" and of course, The Golden Globe Awards (to which she was also nominated for best-supporting actress in a leading film). But she really doesn't even care that much about what she looks like, she doesn't even think of herself as a fashion icon for people to look up too or marvel over "I really would not call myself a fashion icon. I would call myself somebody who gets dressed by professionals. It's like 'dance monkey, dance, right onto the red carpet'. I would call me more of a monkey". But let's be real about the situation, pretty much 80% of Hollywood's A-list celebrities are all dressed by professionals, right? But in my eyes, she is someone to marvel over and look up too, not just for her style (which is so right in so many ways) but for her poise, for her positive attitude, for her talent, and for her level-headedness and the fun she has within what she does. She is in many ways what all young people aspire to be, not just an actress, but an amazingly motivational young woman who just wants to do what she loves and that for me personally, is incredibly inspiring and most of all, incredibly relatable.
