Besides, the movie has caused quite the stir among movie critics and movie lovers alike, especially for the fans of JLaw who have been waiting for a groundbreaking performance since “American Hustle” and “The Silver Linings Playbook”.

Well, this look is certainly old school and unique. While most of us would be shocked and reluctant to sport such huge and face blocking glasses, Jennifer Lawrence shows us how it is done, or rather, Joy shows us how it is done. It certainly does some fabulous things for our girl here, especially with her blonde, wavy bob cut hair and beautiful skin.

Unfortunately, we do not know anyone from the movie set’s styling department, and so we had to hunt down almost similar glasses on our own, and the closest we came, was to this Marc Jacobs MJ 494 glasses. Well, we won’t lie to you; you certainly need a lot of confidence and style to carry of something like this. But as JLaw has shown us time and again, fashion rules are made to be broken, especially when you can end up looking that gorgeous as you smash those “dos” and “don’ts” of fashion world to the ground.
