9Love It or Leave It: Jennifer Lawrence’s Golden Girls Fashion

A photo of Jennifer Lawrence

Love this girl. Love her to death. But I simply cannot accept this dress. And I don’t feel like I should have to.

I don’t know what this whole trend is with the Golden Girls fashion making a comeback, but it has to stop. In this day and age, there is just no need for that many sequins. I feel like this dress could be seen on Dorothy Zbornak as the top of a pantsuit, and that pains me. I feel like Blanche would wear this with pantyhose and huge clip-on earrings when she’s feeling particularly saucy. And I feel like Rose wouldn’t wear this unless it was some shade of pink.

The bottom line is this: no dress made in the 21st century needs to give me so many ideas about how the beloved characters of a show about postmenopausal women in the 80′s would wear it. There is just no reason for this.

    Amen sister

  2. I think she pulls it off quite nicely actually. The 80′s glam works for me fine. I love this girl.

    For some reason, I keep thinking “Tanya Harding.”

    Love her but yes, the dress is horrendous.

  5. Pique says:

    Is it just me or does she photograph badly? She’s so pretty, but in most red carpet pics she looks like a lunatic.

    I’m like a magpie, so I can’t help but love this. I’m so glad sequins are back in.

    Oh yes, and this get-up reminds me of Designing Women, crikey. True, Pique, very true! She needs to memorize her best angles now that she’s hit the big time.
