Jennifer Lawrence is addresssing her fashion critics head-on.
The 27-year-old actress slayed on Tuesday at a photocall for her film, Red Sparrow, confidently sporting a plunging black Versace dress that also featured a daring thigh-high slit. While Lawrence definitely pulled off the sexy LBD to perfection, some deemed her fashion choice as inappropriate due to the cold weather in London, England.
In photos with her male Red Sparrow co-stars, Lawrence poses in the middle, while Francis Lawrence, Matthias Schoenaerts, Joel Edgerton and Jeremy Irons are all covered up in coats and boots.
Lawrence bit back on Wednesday, calling the chatter over her dress "sexist."
"Wow. I don't really know where to get started on this 'Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold' controversy," she wrote on Facebook. "This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice."
"This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism," she added. "Over-reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It's creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people. Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THAT'S MY CHOICE TOO!"
