Jennifer Lawrence Returns to the Oscars in an Old Hollywood-Inspired Polka-Dot Gown by Dior

It’s to be expected that Jennifer Lawrence would don Dior at the 2024 Oscars — but the French fashion house’s longtime ambassador stepped out in a surprise pop of polka dots at tonight’s ceremony.

For her return to the Academy Awards red carpet, the No Hard Feelings star wore a strapless black-and-white off-shoulder gown from Christian Dior Haute Couture’s Spring 2024 collection. (She last attended the Oscars in 2018.) The playful dotted print — a pattern rarely seen at Hollywood’s biggest night — was accentuated by matching wrap.

The look was accessorized with a necklace and tennis bracelet, both crafted of created diamonds, set in 18-karat white gold, from Swarovski’s Galaxy collection. Both pieces made their debut at the 2024 Oscars.

“Jennifer embodies all the qualities that inspired me when designing the collection: luminous beauty, brilliance and energy,” Giovanna Engelbert, creative director of Swarovski, told The Hollywood Reporter. “With this marking the first major red-carpet appearance for my Galaxy Collection of lab-grown diamond jewelry, it is wonderful to see how Jennifer’s natural radiance is highlighted with our exquisite Swarovski Created Diamonds.”
