Jennifer Lawrence Calls Out Sexist Critiques of Her Cold Weather Style Choice

Lawrence wore a biker jacket, simple white T-shirt, and Michael Kors Collection flared prince-of-wales check pants, infusing her boy-meets-girl approach to daytime dress with a more tailored edge.

Given that it's the middle of winter in the United Kingdom at the moment - and bloody cold - many were quick to express their shock that the actor was wearing a plunging Versace dress, while the men in the picture were rugged up in coats and long trousers. Still, I think her decision to wear this and freeze also shows that the roles men and women feel they need to play are firmly embedded in our society.

Fans had called out the massive double standard in this image.

Joel Edgerton thinks Jennifer Lawrence was in a "lose-lose" scenario when she chose to wear a skimpy Versace dress on Tuesday (02.20.18).

She goes on to say: "I was outside for five minutes".

Some netizens questioned her fashion choice and even asked Versace why they didn't dress her in one of their suits instead. However, just because the "Red Sparrow" actress likes the actor, it doesn't mean she is going to try to pursue a relationship with him right away.

Now the actress has hit back saying, shaming her outfit "is not feminism".

Instead, she said it was "creating silly distractions from real issues".

"I'm going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.Us ... trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level".

She continued, "Timothée, I'm waiting for him to get a little bit older, you know? And if I want to be cold THAT'S MY CHOICE TOO!"


"I don't know where to start".

". It's one of the things we love most about her, in fact. "It's sort of a lose-lose situation".

Her male co-stars wore long pants and coats and several people pointed out the contrast. At some point it seemed like the weather was blamed because it was the optics, plus the weather, plus the four of us in our outfits; the sum total of all of it was like a f**king worldwide incident!

Joel admitted he couldn't quite believe the stir Jen's dressed caused.

The actor's newest movie follows ballerina Dominika Egorova as she is recruited to "Sparrow School", a branch of the Russian intelligence service.
