What's wrong with this picture? Depends on who you ask.
The critics took issue with it, because the men got to bundle up on a cold day and Jennifer Lawrence was out there in a skimpy dress.
Sexist, unfair, etc...
This is such a quietly depressing (and revealing) image. Not least because I've been outside today and it's bloody FREEZING. pic.twitter.com/BRnmgKJ5wY— Helen Lewis (@helenlewis) February 20, 2018
Yup. And the sheer number of men I know who come to press junkets freshly rolled out of bed when their female counterparts have been up since 4am going thru hair & makeup. The expectations women are expected to fill physically in order to be considered ‘hardworking’ are ten fold. https://t.co/lORhixC9t7— Zelda Williams (@zeldawilliams) February 20, 2018
At least the guys look really embarrassed https://t.co/aoTxwKahaf— Alexandra Frean (@freanie) February 20, 2018
Jennifer Lawrence fired back, saying they were creating controversy over "silly, innocuous things".
Bottom line? The dress was fabulous and she wasn't going to cover it up.
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. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice. This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. Over- reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It's creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people. Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!
Jennifer's rant got mixed reviews--
Thank God for women like Jennifer Lawrence. Enough of this radical feminist bulls**t - it’s getting ridiculous.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 21, 2018
FWIW, Jennifer Lawrence (!) has responded to WarmCoatGate. I disagree with the idea that "anything a woman chooses to do" = feminism. Also, I felt like the whole "Jeremy Irons in chaps business" was a clue I don't think this is the biggest issue facing the world... pic.twitter.com/WSeYPP0qRV— Helen Lewis (@helenlewis) February 21, 2018
By the way, the photo shoot was a promo for the movie "Red Sparrow", opening March 2nd. Here's the trailer--
