Jennifer Lawrence has taken to the screens like a duck to water. She is an actress that for such a young age, has achieved so much in such a short space of time and given herself a name that will forever be remembered on the red carpet. The American actress is best known for her performances as Raven Darkhölme / Mystique in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class, Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games trilogy and Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook. But aside from her achievements in the film industry, Jennifer Lawrence is a lady that has caught our attention for many other, inspiring reasons.
The 23 year old has recently been recognised for standing up for all those that bash women in the media for their appearance and size. Enforcing that “it should be illegal to call someone fat”, Jennifer shared her forward thinking opinion to Barbara Walters, where they discussed the effects society is having on our younger generations. It came out on the 17th of this month, that Jennifer was photo-shopped to look slimmer and faultless for the cover of Flare Magazine. Her collar bones were accentuated, cheeks narrowed, bust plumped and arms trimmed, to which the Oscar-winning actress expressed dismay. “‘I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than to look great onscreen and look like a scarecrow in real life.” In this sense, Jennifer represents the modern woman and a leader for the movement that is slowly attempting to ban unhealthily small and ill-looking models on the catwalks.
We are also huge fans of Jennifer at Semple for her style and confidence channeling a more natural look on the red carpet. Recently rocking the pixie crop, Jennifer has displayed an array of hairstyles and colours, demonstrating the fun we can have with our features and how to accentuate them best. Hair up, fringe cut, red lips, nude eye – you name it, Jennifer has done it. Jennifer is an actress who definitely plays the heroine off set as much as she does on screen and we can’t wait to see what she will do next in 2014.
