The Oscars are only a day away, and on Friday night, Jennifer Lawrence kicked off the exciting weekend by attending the Women in Film pre-Oscar bash at Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails in LA. Aside from drawing eyes in a sexy crochet minidress, the Joy actress was all about women's empowerment as she took the stage to speak about equal pay at the annual event hosted by Academy Award winners Cathy Schulman and Jennifer Hudson. Following Patricia Arquette's moving speech, USA Today reported that Jennifer also shone light on the issue, saying, "We're starting a conversation. We're getting a dialogue going. . . . I didn't know I was going to be (speaking). . . . Equal pay for women!"
Just the day before, Jennifer made a stunning appearance at a charity gala in Beverly Hills hosted by Patricia and Internet bigwig Marc Benioff. Read on for more of Jennifer's night, and then check out this year's Oscar nominees.
