Behind the Cover of Jennifer's British Vogue Shoot
"I WAS really excited about meeting her," said Vogue's fashion editor Francesca Burns, who first became enamoured with Jennifer Lawrence after watching the 2010 hit Winter's Bone last Christmas. "I thought it was an incredible film. She's so becoming in it and I thought she was a really brilliant actress," explained Burns of the performance that earned Lawrence an Oscar nomination - she was the second youngest actress ever to be nominated for Best Actress Academy Award accolade.
"I didn't want to shoot high fashion on her, she's a really cool Californian type of girl and the fashion this season was so directional - all those heavy jacquard and graphic prints - it just didn't feel right," said Burns. The upshot? A series of chunky, slouchy knits with homespun appeal, including Bottega Veneta's waffle sweater; Ashley Williams' update on a fisherman's rib; a cashmere cable knit from Christopher Kane; and a beaded jumper by Burberry.
What's next for Lawrence? Amongst other film projects on the cards, she has the sequel to The Hunger Games, the film that catapulted her onto Hollywood's radar, which is being released next year along with her second X-Men film, Day of Future Past hitting screens in 2014. Uber-stardom beckons for the girl Burns described as: "so cool, so easy and so likeable. She's the kind of girl you could know or want to know. And she's hilariously funny!"
