Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer was born the daughter of a construction worker in 1990. Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, she had her sights set on stardom at a young age. She graduated two years early with a 3.9 average, already sure that acting was the road she wanted to take. It didn't take her long to convince her parents to make the trip to New York City where she could find an agent.

She was sixteen when she got her first role, playing the oldest daughter on The Bill Engvall Show. After three years she had earned her first award, taking home Outstanding Young Performer a TV Series in 2009. Getting recognized is something she would quickly get used to. In only a few short years she has won awards for her roles in The Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle all while changing the dynamic of the movie industry becoming the highest grossing female lead in that genre for The Hunger Games. Her efforts brought home four Critics Choice Awards, A Golden Globe and two Screen Actor's Guild Awards. It's beginning to be obvious that Jennifer did wisely when she chose acting.

During her time on the red carpet, she has developed a style all her own. Mixing classic era design with modern twists and a little bit of a cavalier attitude. The styles from her roles tend to lend a supporting hand to her premier night choices. Recognized for her portrayal as strong, sexy and independant in films, Jennifer provides a role model to young women following her footsteps.
