LONDON: Jennifer Lawrence has hit back at critics of the plunging dress she wore to an outdoor photocall saying “this is not feminism”.
Some commentators had questioned whether the fact she was wearing a revealing dress outdoors in London on a cold day for the publicity event for her film Red Sparrow, while her male co-stars and director wore long trousers and coats, was a sign of gender imbalance.
Lawrence has rubbished the claims, saying they are a “distraction” from the real issues and that the Versace dress with a thigh-high split was her choice.
She wrote on Facebook: “Wow. I don’t really know where to get started on this ‘Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold’ controversy.
“This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended.
