Jennifer Lawrence Named New Dior Face

Actress Jennifer Lawrence has replaced Mila Kunis as the new face of fashion house Christian Dior’s handbag collection.

The Hunger Games star will front the 2013 spring/summer advertising campaign for Miss Dior and the 21-year-old insists she is delighted to represent the brand.

She tells Women’s Wear Daily, “It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion.”

And executives are just as excited about working with the Oscar nominee.

Creative director Raf Simons says, “Like everyone else, I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence in the roles she played in action movies. I was, of course, struck by her incredible onscreen presence in these blockbuster films, but also impressed by her powerful interpretations of subtler, more rounded characters.

“Her youth and her classic beauty, but also her force of character and the complexity she’s capable of embodying at such a young age, are, for me, both unique and very moving.”

Black Swan star Kunis recently shot ads for the firm’s 2012 autumn/winter line.
