2) DIOR FINDS NEW MUSE: Fans of the blockbuster film “Hunger Games” have come to know 22-year-old Jennifer Lawrence as an up and coming film siren, but the talented young actress was recently pegged to be the face for Christian Dior’s Miss Dior handbag campaign, to be unveiled in magazines early spring next year, according to fashion journal WWD. “Like everyone else, I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence in the roles she played in action movies,” Dior creative director Raf Simons was reported as saying. “I was, of course, struck by her incredible on-screen presence in these blockbuster films, but also impressed by her powerful interpretations of subtler more rounded characters. Her youth and her classic beauty, but also her force of character and the complexity she's capable of embodying at such a young age, are, for me, both unique and very moving.”
