Jennifer Lawrence Tells Stylists She Wants to Look Like a 'Slutty Power Lesbian'

But, she says wearing Dior (i.e. not slutty power lesbian attire) is an "honor" in the "Glamour" magazine cover story.

America's favorite leading lady sat down with Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive to catch up on boyz, fashion and her new film "Joy" for the magazine's February cover. As expected, JLaw drops several of the of quotable gems she's known for — as well as dishing on her friendship with Amy Schumer and support for Planned Parenthood.  

Though we at Fashionista are eagerly awaiting Lawrence's release from the gilded shackles of her multi-year Dior contract, the actress speaks respectfully of the French house and describes the dresses from her recent "Hunger Games" press tour as "just phenomenal." However, Lawrence's preferred aesthetic is one she describes as "slutty power lesbian."

"That is literally what I say to a stylist," she says. When Leive points out that style doesn't really correspond with what we usually see her wearing, Lawrence says, "you don’t see me as a slutty power lesbian on the red carpet a lot, because I'm embodying the Dior woman, which is an honor." Hmmmm. Sounds like we aren't the only ones who want to see her in a floral Gucci suit, though "powerful lesbians" can certainly wear Dior gowns with aplomb.

Lawrence also explains why her red carpet looks often feature prominent cleavage. 

But [also] I've got tits and an ass. And there are things that are made for skinny people—like a lot of embroidery, or it covers a lot—and those make me look fat. I have to show the lumps. If you have boobs, you have to show, like, "These are boobs. This isn't cellulite." [Laughs.] Not that there's anything wrong with that. 

The actress has often implied that she doesn't think too much about fashion, but told Leive that she's taken more agency over her style recently. (And probably with help from new stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson.) "I think I had to take control... It was like, if I don't start getting an opinion, I'm just gonna be like a puppet that's being dressed by everybody else."

SOON YOU WILL BE FREE, JLAW.
