Jennifer Lawrence is the New Face of Dior Beauty Photo Courtesy of Dior Jennifer Lawrence is already one of Dior’s best brand ambassadors. She’s been serving in the role since 2012 and her responsibilities have included appearing in their handbag campaign and strictly wearing the iconic French label on the red carpet.

How to Wear Head-to-Toe White Like Beyonce, Kim & Gigi So many things can go wrong when you wear all white: red wine, coffee, the general dirtiness of life.
