US actress Jennifer Lawrence arrives for the screening of the film "Bread and Roses."
Jennifer Lawrence opted for comfort at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, where she walked the red carpet in a stunning Christian Dior gown and an unexpected shoe choice.
The Oscar-winning actor arrived at the annual French film festival on 21 May wearing a crimson Christian Dior couture gown for the Anatomie D’une Chute (Anatomy Of A Fall) premiere. The Old Hollywood-style dress featured a ruffled bust, corset bustier, and matching shawl draped over her shoulders. She paired the ensemble with a diamond choker necklace and a pale red lip colour.
However, it was her shoes that turned heads. Underneath the Hunger Games star’s floor-length gown was a pair of casual black flip-flops, which could be seen in photos as she descended the Palais des Festivals steps.
Jennifer Lawrence is in Cannes for the premiere of the documentary Bread and Roses, which she co-produced. The film follows three Afghan women in the weeks after the Taliban’s return to power in 2021 following the withdrawal of US troops.
The Silver Linings Playbook star isn’t the only celebrity to ditch a pair of heels for more comfortable footwear on the red carpet. In 2018, Kristen Stewart also removed her heels while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival – though many believed it was in protest of the festival’s alleged dress code.
