While Beyoncé may have started the trend of wearing actual bridal gowns on the red carpet- or accepting a Grammy in one-Jennifer Lawrence elevated laid-back, boho bridal to new heights last night at the “Faces Places” premiere. The style star ditched her standard Dior gowns and donned a swiss-dot, illusion-skirted bridal gown with sheer lace flutter sleeves from boutique, NYC-based brand L. Wells. The always-stunning Lawrence paired the look with layered charm necklaces and a minimal, strappy sandal, foregoing the flower crown and veil most brides wearing this style will likely consider.
We’ll be the first to admit the typically Dior Haute Couture-clad Lawrence hitting the red carpet in a look from an up-and-coming bridal designer is unexpected, but we’re liking these laid-back bridal vibes for what appeared to be an easygoing event in West Hollywood, CA.
The dress, it seems, is part of designer Lauren Wells’ new bridal line for 2018, a collection which she sweetly dubbed “Je T’aime.” According to her site’s bio, Wells, while new to the bridal scene in her own right, has worked for bridal mega-house Vera Wang as well as ready-to-wear label Candela, which is likely how she came across the desks of Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson, Lawrence’s Los Angeles-based stylists.
Could this dress be a subliminal style message we need to read into further (much like Lawrence and her boyfriend Darren Aronofsky’s latest flick, Mother!)? Does J.Law want to dabble in some bridal beyond the red carpet? We’re taking a leap of faith after seeing her in this style and keeping our fingers crossed.
