|Behind The Cover Shoot|
“I WAS really excited about meeting her,” said Vogue’s fashion editor Francesca Burns, who first became enamoured with Jennifer Lawrence after watching the 2010 hit Winter’s Bone last Christmas. “I thought it was an incredible film. She’s so becoming in it and I thought she was a really brilliant actress,” explained Burns of the performance that earned Lawrence an Oscar nomination – she was the second youngest actress ever to be nominated for Best Actress Academy Award accolade.
Fast forward to June this year and Burns headed to Santa Monica (or more specifically the house Boogie Nights was filmed in – that prompted woops of “How cool is that!” from Lawrence on set), to style the up- and-coming star for the November cover shoot with photographer Alasdair McLellan.
“Alasdair takes such honest pictures; he always finds the beauty in his subjects – not that it’s hard with Jennifer,” noted Burns. “We were looking at some old Joseph Szabo photographs of American teenagers in the Seventies and that really inspired the feel of the shoot.”
That relaxed Seventies vibe and Lawrence’s laidback approach to stardom (a blend of her Kentucky-born, California-dwelling upbringing), translated onto the clothes – and the tousled brushed-out hair styled by Anthony Turner – that Burns chose for her.
“I didn’t want to shoot high fashion on her, she’s a really cool Californian type of girl and the fashion this season was so directional – all those heavy jacquard and graphic prints – it just didn’t feel right,” said Burns. The upshot? A series of chunky, slouchy knits with homespun appeal, including Bottega Veneta’s waffle sweater; Ashley Williams’ update on a fisherman’s rib; a cashmere cable knit from Christopher Kane; and a beaded jumper by Burberry.
What’s next for Lawrence? Amongst other film projects on the cards, she has the sequel to The Hunger Games, the film that catapulted her onto Hollywood’s radar, which is being released next year along with her second X-Men film, Day of Future Past hitting screens in 2014. Uber-stardom beckons for the girl Burns described as: “so cool, so easy and so likeable. She’s the kind of girl you could know or want to know. And she’s hilariously funny!”

|Josh visits haunted house in Atlanta, gets spooked|
Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, took a break from filming over the weekend to get into the Halloween spirit.
The actor visited the Netherworld Haunted House in Atlanta, Georgia and was snapped getting spooked by a couple of the inhabitants:
The venue’s official website said that Hutcherson and unnamed crew attended on Saturday. They describe themselves as “The #1 Haunted House in America” and have over 40,000 likes on Facebook which may lend to the believability of their self-proclaimed rating. Netherworld is open every day between now and November 3. We wonder if Peeta would be more scared by a haunted house or a threat from President Snow? Our guess is the latter.
Filming on Catching Fire is expected to continue in Atlanta for several more weeks before moving to Hawaii in December. Recently an Instagram user snapped a photo of an active District set where a reaping may be taking place. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters November 22, 2013.
Looking forward in The Hunger Games fandom, we learned last week that Lionsgate is courting Danny Strong to pen Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. The films will be released in November 2014 and 2015 respectively.

|Jennifer is the new face of Dior|
The Oscar-nominated actress will appear in her first campaign for the French fashion house’s Miss Dior handbag line in March 2013. She will replace fellow actress Mila Kunis, who is currently the face of the range.
“It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion,” she told WWD of the partnership, which will be her first collaboration with a luxury brand. Although she has admitted in the past that she doesn’t invest much time in her sartorial choices off the red carpet, she claims “It’s impossible to be in the industry without getting even the slightest introduction to fashion.”
The 22-year-old American has also just scored her first Vogue cover, appearing on the November issue of the British edition, as well appearing inside the September issue of the US edition where she was photographed by Norman Jean Roy.
Lawrence, who is currently dating British Skins actor Nicholas Hoult, found fame after playing Ree Dolly in the 2010 film Winter’s Bone , a role for which she was Oscar-nominated. Her prominence grew after she brought the character of Katniss Everdeen to life in the film adaptation of the cult book series The Hunger Games earlier this year.
She is the first celebrity face to be inducted into the house of Dior since Raf Simons took the over the helm in April this year and follows in the footsteps of Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman, all of whom represent the house in some capacity.
“Like everyone else, I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence in the roles she played in action movies,” said Simons in a statement. “I was, of course, struck by her incredible on-screen 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.”
