Then and Now: Marilyn Monroe and Jennifer Lawrence


Every girl's favorite every-girl, the stunning and talented Jennifer Lawrence, was named the new face of Dior a few months back, replacing Mila Kunis as the campaign star for the design house's Miss Dior handbag. Images from the new campaign were released today and I absolutely love it. What's not to love? -- from the sleek modern designs by house designer Raf Simons to the retro-glam touches like an elegant necklace or a veil, it is perfection. There are touches of Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor that I see throughout the shoot, but I think Jennifer looks most like another retro superstar. Even without her natural blonde locks, J. Law resembles fellow blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe in some of these shots, seeming to recreate the same veiled look at MM in her Last Sitting photo shoot with Bert Stern. What do you think of Jennifer's campaign? Does she remind you of Marilyn in these shots, or of some other Hollywood starlet of yesteryear?

I had no idea she was the new face of Dior omg! She looks great. I never would have made the link between these photos though- that's what I love most about your blog, its old meets new and a break from other blog styles.

Thank you so much Jessica! That's so sweet :) But yes doesn't she look incredible? I linked to a page that has all the pics from the campaign -- each one is stunning!

Almost everything in Hollywood is at least slightly ironic, and decidedly modern or post modern in sensibility. Outright racism or misogyny is now rare in Hollywood. Hollywood is basically far more socially conscious. Bollywood is almost entirely about money, much more so than Hollywood. Often mob money. One highly visible motif is the highly problematic rise of "item numbers."
