Vogue is not a bible for me; simply an overpriced magazine with overpriced items inside but I can’t help admire the beautiful fashion pictures it contains. I’m not a big fan of the actors-turn-model-for-one-issue and often feel they’re mixing two worlds that don’t need to be mixed, like some people would say of a whisky and coke.
For the September issue of this year’s Vogue US however, they’ve asked Jennifer Lawrence (the 23-year old actress from ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’) to shine on the most important cover (of the most important issue) of the year.
There’s something about Jennifer Lawrence. She’s beautiful, refreshing, goofy and simply an amazing actress. Anyone who has seen the interview after her fall on the Oscar stage while trying to climb the steps to receive her Oscar, has fallen in love with her a little bit.
Apart from the surprisingly stunning pictures, which is not always a given – sorry Katy Perry -, the editorial about the young Oscar winner is also very amusing.
Excerpt from Vogue US interview:
David O. Russell, the man who directed Lawrence to an Oscar in Silver Linings Playbook, remembers bumping into her during awards season, 2011. “I would see this tall blonde at events, and I never understood who she was,” he says. “She looked like an Orange County girl—or Malibu Barbie. And I was like, ‘Who is that?’ And someone would say, ‘That’s Jennifer Lawrence,’ and I would say, ‘The girl cooking a squirrel on a stick in Winter’s Bone?’ I never recognized her! She always looks different.”
