Tom Ford’s super-private, no-photography-allowed shows mean that we always have to wait to see the new collection, in precisely the way the designer chooses to premiere it–and for Fall 2012, Ford has decided to debut his latest collection to the general public on celebrities on the red carpet. First it was Gwyeneth Paltrow at the Oscars. And now it’s Jennifer Lawrence and her well-toned back at the Paris premiere of The Hunger Games. Well played, Mr. Ford, well played.
J.Law looks amazing in Ford’s zippered backless creation. We’re also loving the sleek hair and red lip as a slight departure from Lawrence’s usual beauty look. And after two back-to-back gold floor-length looks at Hunger Games‘ premieres (first in Prabal Gurung, then in Ralph Lauren), this LBD is a welcome change.
