Flip flops go by various names: thongs, jandals, and occasionally, a cardinal sin against fashion.
However, there’s an undeniable truth about flip flops.
They are considerably more comfortable than six-inch high heels. And for someone like Jennifer Lawrence, who has a tendency to trip over, wearing flip flops to a fancy event surely becomes an even more appealing choice.
And that’s exactly what she did. Her outfit featured a dress with a ruffled bust and a corseted bustier.
To complete the look, she elegantly draped a shawl over her arms, accessorized with a sparkling diamond choker necklace, and wore a lip color reminiscent of wine stains.
From head to almost toe, she embodied the epitome of old Hollywood glamour.
However, adorning her feet were a pair of simple black thongs.
According to Vogue, there is an unwritten rule that women attending the Cannes Film Festival must wear high heels.
Lawrence was in the company of esteemed figures from the film industry, including her Bread and Roses colleague, director Sahra Mani, and American Hustle producer Justine Ciarrocchi.
After achieving worldwide success with the blockbuster film series, The Hunger Games, Lawrence chose a more private life following the birth of her one-year-old son Cy, whom she shares with her husband Cooke Maroney.
Despite opting for a more secluded family life, Lawrence spoke candidly to Vogue in October about her new role as a mother. She described the morning after giving birth as a fresh start, saying, “It felt like day one of my life. I was just so in love. I also fell in love with all babies everywhere.”
Expressing her newfound admiration for newborns, she added, “They’re these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies.”
Lawrence’s presence in Cannes revolves around the celebration of Bread and Roses, a documentary she produced, which delves into the lives of three Afghani women in the aftermath of the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul in 2021.
