Jennifer Lawrence wears what she wants, when she wants, a fact she made very clear in a Facebook post on Wednesday after her black Versace dress came under fire.

Jennifer Lawrence isn't here for your opinions on her life choices. 

 

The 27-year-old posed for photos in London with her Red Sparrow director Francis Lawrence and her co-stars, including Jeremy Irons while wearing a stunning Versace black dress with a plunging neckline and hip-high slit, while the men wore coats. 

 

It didn't take long for online trolls to voice their concern over her outfit choice while her male co-stars rocked an entirely different ensemble. Lawrence got wind of the nonsense and laid the law down in a firey post on Facebook.

Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold, THAT'S MY CHOICE, TOO!

"Wow. I don't really know where to get started on this 'Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold' controversy," the actress began. "This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended."

 

"That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf?" she added. "I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice."

 

The Hunger Games star continued to slam the conversation surrounding her outfit, saying, "This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism," she said. "Overreacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It's creating silly distractions from real issues."

 

Lawrence urged people to "get a grip" and, "Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold, THAT'S MY CHOICE, TOO!"

 

JLaw out.
