Jennifer Lawrence Declares Fashion a Space for Feminism
Fashion has always been a space for declaring how you feel inside and that isn’t changing with Jennifer Lawrence’s new campaign for Dior. The versatile actress, who’s now serving as a brand ambassador for the luxury designer, isn’t about to separate style and politics. In her latest print ad for Dior, Jennifer pairs jeans with a blazer. But it’s all about her shirt, which reads: “WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS.”

While it’s worth being skeptical of corporate feminism, the tees aren’t just for Dior’s bottom line. A portion of the proceeds will be headed to the Clara Lionel Foundation, which Rihanna founded in order to “fight against injustice, inequality, and poverty” by providing equitable access to education and healthcare.
Still, the tee’s $710 price tag is pretty alarming. Dior has faced some justifiable backlash from the Internet, even with the charitable proceeds.
Criticism aside, it’s positive that fashion labels are preaching a message they’ll be held accountable for in practice. And it doesn’t hurt that J-Law and Rihanna, two hugely influential stars, are broadcasting that message on a global scale.
