Jennifer Lawrence makes dramatic appearance in stunning black gown at Red Sparrow premiere in New York
Jennifer Lawrence stunned onlookers on the red carpet in New York as she joined her co-stars for the premiere of her latest film, Red Sparrow.
Arriving at Lincoln Centre on Monday night the actress, 27, struck a pose wearing a floor length black gown with a nude bodice under a high-neck top and full skirt.
Looking every bit the Hollywood star, she chose a classic look for her makeup, sporting glamorous smokey eyes and red lipstick.
Her hair was tied in a neat bun and she finished the ensemble with emerald earrings.
Lawrence plays a Russian ballerina who becomes a ruthless spy in the thriller Red Sparrow.
She was joined on the red carpet by co-stars Joely Richardson and Mary Louise Parker.
Richardson, 53, wore an electric blue satin dress with matching blue and black heeled sandals.
Her co-star Parker,53, looked elegant in a monochrome gown which paired a white short sleeved bodice and a draping black skirt.
The Oscar-winning actress admitted she was “terrified” about bearing all for her role as a Russian agent.
Lawrence, 27, opened up about her nude scene during an interview with the Today show in Australia, saying: “It was really scary to say yes to the movie because I knew the only way to tell the story is if I agreed to really do the scenes and go full Monty.
“It took a while to say, ‘yes’. And the night before I didn't sleep at all and I was obviously really nervous because it is the actual nightmare of standing in front of a classroom naked.
Red Sparrow is currently showing in cinemas across the UK.
