We knew it was only a matter of time before Jennifer Lawrence took Best Dressed honors. After all, the actress’s Hunger Games: Catching Fire press tour has been a parade of one gorgeous Dior creation after another. The look that earned the most love from readers (and won this week’s title) was an off-white architectural gown, worn to the movie’s Rome premiere. Paired with a gorgeous pair of metallic ankle-strap sandals and that new pixie, it’s hard to argue that the look was among her best.

But, really, who could choose a favorite among all the risk-taking numbers? J.Law traveled the globe in everything from a double-breasted coat dress to a whole lotta sheer. Some were well-received (see: her black tux design in N.Y.C.), and others sparked intense debates (our editors still can’t agree on her L.A. premiere look: a sheer-dress-and-bodysuit number!).

Now that The Hunger Games is in theaters and Jennifer’s press tour is coming to an end, we have to ask: Which look did you love the most? Do you think the right one took Best Dressed honors?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Her co-star Elizabeth Banks should be named best dressed. She looked incredible at every premiere!

Smithy on

^^^ disagree about Elizabeth Banks — the blingy black cuffed jumpsuit was a fail.

LOVE JENNIFER’S new hair. She is beautiful inside and out — a rarity in Hollywood.

“Now that The Hunger Games is in theaters and Jennifer’s press tour is coming to an end, we have to ask: ”

come on, the hunger games is NOT the movie she is currently promoting!

Vicki on

She’s a beautiful girl and she’s caught up in the whirlwind that is Hollywood while she is still fresh faced, I like the dress on this page but not sure about the others, maybe that will change when the hype is over for these movies!! She looks like she is having fun with it!! Good for her :)

This is the only dress that really stood out to me. That sheer mess was just plain horrid. Whoever helps her needs to do better fittings as most of the clothes were just off and made her look frumpy and kind of old.

Not a fan of the bottom part of the gown. The top looked great.

Jennifer is a class act and beautiful inside and out. She definitely has a sense of style that is rare for a star her age. Refreshing to see someone so together!!

Jennifer’s look in Rome was by far my favorite. Classy and gorgeous in every sense of the word!!! Her look for the London premiere came in a close second!!!
