Jennifer Lawrence’s New Dior Ads: Totally Gorgeous, or a Photoshopped Mess?

Different look for the Oscar winner

You might think that Dior, after paying Jennifer Lawrence a lot of money to be an endorser, would want the woman in its new ad to look pretty obviously like Jennifer Lawrence. But not everyone is convinced she does.

The print ad above, featuring the actress, is drawing praise, but also some criticism for excessive Photoshopping. It's not on the usual social-ethical grounds but because, as Emily Leaman over at Philly Magazine suggests, the ad looks more like a "pre-pubescent 12-year-old boy than the strong, broad-shouldered, post-pubscent Jennifer Lawrence we know in movies like Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games."

That's a bit of a rhetorical stretch, but you might find yourself blinking hard once or twice before you realize who it is. In reality, it's pretty clearly her—especially when you compare it to some of her early modeling photos. But it is fair to say that between the aggressive retouching (which she tends not to mind) and the haute trappings, Lawrence doesn't look much like the straight-talking girl next door image she's grown into.

Jessie Heyman over at Huffington Post, for her part, thinks Dior's new Lawrence looks like Leonardo DiCaprio circa Titanic. Then again, that might be a compliment … he was one of the prettiest young women in Hollywood.
