I mean, who else could it be, really? 2013 has been Jennifer Lawrence's year, which is why The Fashion Barbie is awarding her the title of It Girl of 2013. Back in 2011 we knew this girl was going places, but who could have predicted that Jennifer Lawrence was going to be the star of Young Hollywood when she stepped out into the spotlight three years ago.
To summarize Lawrence's stunning year: she kicked off 2013 with a bang by winning an Oscar for her outstanding performance in Silver Linings Playbook. She became the face of Christian Dior. The second installment of The Hunger Games was an even bigger success than the first (already counting the days until the next one!). Her latest film, American Hustle recently came out and is already an Oscar front-runner; Lawrence has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her supporting role and may earn her third Oscar nomination (and second win, perhaps?).
A whirlwind year indeed.
Lawrence hasn't just won awards this year; she's won over the hearts of moviegoers everywhere. Her All-American, "real" and slightly awkward (but always endearing) attitude is easily relatable, and Lawrence is much more focused on her acting than on taking the spotlight.
Of course, Lawrence still wears designer duds that cost a small fortune, so she's not exactly your average girl, but she wears even couture with casual elegance and ease. Lawrence's style can vary from edgy and experimental to gorgeous and glam.
Lawrence also made waves this year with her new 'do (and we're not talking about her Katniss braids). Earlier this year she decided to chop off her long layers for a stylish pixie cut. I'm not going to lie, I was highly skeptical of this hairdo at first, but the look has grown on me.
It's especially exhilarating to compare Lawrence's early red carpet looks to her most recent ensembles, because you really understand the type of style evolution that she's gone through. Jennifer Lawrence hasn't just blossomed into one of the most promising actresses of our generation, she's also grown into a style icon in 2013.
We couldn't give the title of It Girl of 2013 to a sweeter, more talented actress, and with seven films in the works, you know the Reign of Jennifer Lawrence is only just beginning.
Here's to more awesome red carpet moments in the next year, and here's to 2014.
