Jennifer Lawrence Wore an Actual Wedding Dress to Her Engagement Party

Even before Jennifer Lawrence got engaged—in February of this year, to her very tall art dealer boyfriend Cooke Maroney—she had here eye on bridal looks. She wore a look by the bridal label L. Wells to the premiere of the Agnes Varda documentary Faces Places back in late 2017, taking a detour from her usual wardrobe of all Dior, all the time and prompting rumors that she and then-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky might be getting really serious. And even though Lawrence and Maroney have yet to announce a date for their upcoming nuptials, the actress opted to revisit a bridal look for her engagement party Sunday night—in a second gown by L. Wells.

Lawrence arrived at the party, held in New York for a select group of family and friends who may have included Emma Stone, in a blush-pink look from the label’s newest, Picnic at Hanging Rock-inspired collection. It featured a deep v-neck, full sleeves, and a thigh-high slit and retails for $2,300; according to an Instagram by stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson, she paired it with Fred Leighton jewelry, a Roger Vivier bag, and Casadei shoes with makeup by artist Fulvia Farolfi and hair by Ben Skirvin. “Too good of a time was had by all,” Lincoln and Johnson wrote in their Instagram caption.

Though Lawrence has been one of the faces of Christian Dior since 2012, when she was inducted into the house under Raf Simons, she has, on rare occasions, opted not to wear the brand during very select public appearances. (Does your engagement party count as a public appearance, when it’s being covered by Vogue?) According to an Instagram by tailor Christy Rilling, who worked on the engagement party look, L. Wells designer Lauren Wells is Lawrence’s cousin, which seems like an appropriate reason to forego other option. (Based on the numerous Instagrams that surfaced during the day on Monday, as well as reports by outlets like People, it seemed that the party took place on Sunday night; Rilling, however, wrote that they had celebrated on Saturday.)
