The ‘Hunger Games’ actress has already picked out her gown for the Academy Awards ceremony this month – where she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘American Hustle’, but is nervous about her chosen look for the big night on March 2.
Quizzed by Deadline.com about whether she was excited about her red carpet preparations, she joked: ”Exciting? I’m trying to go back to that place where dress fittings seemed exciting. I’ve had one fitting here in Atlanta and I think I have the final fitting on the day of the awards. So I just hope it fits.”
The blonde beauty is expected to be dressed in Dior for the ceremony, after reportedly singing a three-year contract with the luxury fashion house, rumoured to be worth between $15 and $20 million. She has been a spokesmodel for the high-end brand since 2012. The look will certainly be a marked contrast from her appearance in David O’Russell’s 70s heist flick, which memorably saw her don a skin-tight white dress which left little to the imagination.
Costume designer Michael Wilkinson recently said: ”Jennifer and I had fun with the character. We really wanted there to be someone always not quite right about the way she dressed, and for her often to be overdressed, underdressed, not dressed appropriately for a situation, wearing things that really didn’t work so well for her body.”
