Jennifer Lawrence's Dior dress isn't sparkly. It's not ridiculously tight or shockingly sheer. It's just . . . classic. With its asymmetrical, A-line cut and tuxedo-illusion bodice, it's the type of design you know you'd invest in and continue to wear for years. That's exactly why we looked twice when the actress showed up to a special screening of Joy in London.

Jennifer pulled back her hair to reveal dainty triangle earrings that matched her shimmering square clutch and studded Christian Louboutin heels. She completed her outfit with a row of diamond bangles and a matching ring and needed little else to turn heads — it was already in the bag when she chose that dress.
