Jennifer Lawrence wows in white

Jennifer Lawrence stole the show at yesterday’s pre-Oscars lunch.

The star, who is nominated for an Oscar in the best actress category for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, wore a Chloé frock with Casadei heels to the event at the Beverly Hilton.

The 22-year-old actress has had huge success this awards season, taking home a Golden Globe award last month, dressed in a crimson Christian Dior Haute Couture gown.

At the lunch on Monday, the actress joked she would be stepping up her game for the Oscars ceremony on February 24.

Although she is already planning her outfit, she is trying not to fret too much about the big event.

“It’s very calm at my house. Nobody in my family has fully absorbed it. I can talk about other things than myself, which is great. And then the night of the Oscars, everybody just gets wasted and has a blast,” she laughed yesterday.

Anne Hathaway also attended the event, dressed in a black dress by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s label The Row.

The brunette is nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in Les Misérables, but has yet to plan her dress.

“I need to get on that don’t I? It was the Super Bowl. I couldn’t think about dresses with all that delicious fried food around?” she joked.

“I don’t take anything for granted. I have been given extraordinary opportunities and I’ve fought for extraordinary opportunities. So I don’t believe you are ever just there in the golden moment. I think you’ll probably always have to remind people that you’re there, that you have something to offer, maybe something beyond what they imagine for you.”

Also impressing at yesterday’s lunch were Amy Adams and Jessica Chastain, who both opted for floral dresses.
