Jennifer Lawrence Flaunts Her Figure in a Versace-Inspired Gown at Red Sparrow Photocall in London, Paying Tribute to Elizabeth Hurley’s Iconic Look from 24 Years Ago

Back in 1994, Elizabeth Hurley became a global sensation thanks to her iconic safety pin Versace gown at the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral. Now, Jennifer Lawrence seems to be following in Hurley’s footsteps as she dons a similar style at the Red Sparrow photo-call in London’s Corinthia Hotel. The 27-year-old actress looked stunning in her plunging black gown, which closely resembled the one worn by Hurley at an event in LA with then-boyfriend Hugh Grant over two decades ago.

Sizzling: Jennifer Lawrence appeared keen to court the same incredible attention as Elizabeth Hurley Safety Pin dress on Tuesday afternoon as she stole the English actress' style while appearing at a Red Sparrow photocall at the Corinthia Hotel in London

Jennifer Lawrence seemed to be craving the same level of attention garnered by Elizabeth Hurley’s iconic Safety Pin dress when she showed up at a photocall for Red Sparrow at the Corinthia Hotel in London on Tuesday afternoon, sporting a similar style.

Taking the plunge: The Oscar-winning actress turned heads with her very racy choice of outfit as she whizzed around London on her latest round of promotional work 

Jennifer, the Oscar-winning actress, has been generating buzz with her bold fashion choices during her promotional tour for her latest movie. She even turned heads in London with her daring outfit that bore a striking resemblance to Elizabeth’s iconic dress. The outfit featured a figure-hugging silhouette, studded halterneck detail, slashed leg, and a deeply-plunging neckline that showcased Jennifer’s decision to go braless – just like Elizabeth’s famous display 24 years ago. It’s no surprise that Jennifer wants to make a statement with her fashion choices, especially since parts of her new movie were shot at The Corinthia Hotel.

Back in 1994, Elizabeth Hurley became a global sensation after wearing a stunning Versace dress that was adorned with safety pins to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Legs eleven: The stunner wrapped against the London chill in a warm coat yet still managed to display her staggering legs 

Eleven out of ten for those legs! Despite the cold London weather, the gorgeous lady was sporting a cozy coat, but that didn’t stop her from flaunting her absolutely stunning legs.

Ahem! Jennifer's assets certainly stole the show as she strutted into the event 

Uh-huh! Jennifer’s physical attributes definitely grabbed all the attention as she confidently walked into the occasion.

Incredible: The 27-year-old stunner looked incredible in the plunging black gown which boasted a near-identical shape to that worn by the Bedazzled beauty, 52, when she appeared on the arm of her then-beau Hugh Grant at the LA bash

The gorgeous 27-year-old looked stunning in a black dress that had a similar style to the one worn by the famous actress when she accompanied Hugh Grant to an LA event. She completed her sultry look with a smoky eye and a soft pink lipstick. Elizabeth had previously revealed that the dress was borrowed from Versace as she couldn’t afford to buy one herself. Although some criticized the outfit, the actress defended it by stating that Versace celebrated the female form rather than hiding it.

An idea: The fiery dress accentuated her well-known figure by hugging every part of her body, showcasing her curves.

Smouldering: Various elements of the outfits made them near-identical - including the figure-hugging silhouette, the studded halterneck detail and the slashed leg

The outfits had a lot of similarities, such as the tight-fitting shape, the studded halterneck design, and the exposed thigh area, which gave them a smouldering look.

Wow! Jennifer is not the first star to borrow from the 1994 gown as Lady Gaga sported the gown in 2012 (pictured) to meet with Donatella Versace while she was promoting the brand's archive pieces in her music video for The Edge Of Glory

Oh my goodness! Jennifer isn’t the only celebrity who has taken inspiration from the 1994 dress. Lady Gaga also rocked the gown in 2012 when she met with Donatella Versace during her promotion of the brand’s archive pieces in the music video for The Edge Of Glory. You can see Lady Gaga wearing it in the picture above.

Jennifer wore a dress that paid tribute to the iconic gown from 1994, but she wasn’t the first star to do so. Lady Gaga also wore the dress in 2012 when she met with Donatella Versace and included it in her music video for The Edge Of Glory. Jennifer famously got very intoxicated before filming a sex scene with Chris Pratt for their movie Passengers, but she has since become more comfortable with intimate on-screen moments. She even revealed that her raunchy sex scene in Red Sparrow “wasn’t that bad” and everyone made her feel comfortable. Jennifer was so comfortable that at one point, she didn’t want to wear a robe and felt hot while eating, which made everyone else uncomfortable.

Elizabeth has shared the story of how she obtained the stunning dress she wore to an event. She revealed that Versace had kindly loaned her the dress as she could not afford to purchase one. Even though Hugh’s team said they had no evening wear options available for her, the press office had one item left. Elizabeth tried it on, and it was a perfect fit, so she happily wore it to the occasion.

Happy days: In Red Sparrow, released March 2, J-Law plays a Russian ballerina who is recruited to be a ruthless spy

The recently released movie, Red Sparrow features Jennifer Lawrence in the role of a Russian ballerina who becomes a skilled and brutal spy. However, the celebrated actress has decided to take a year-long break from her acting career to focus on political activism in the United States. Her efforts will be channeled towards Represent.Us, a local organization which supports anti-corruption laws aimed at preventing young Americans from being hindered by strict policies while preparing to vote. Jennifer has confirmed that she will be working with this organization to engage young people in local politics, regardless of political affiliation. The main objective of this campaign is to fight corruption and improve democracy through the passing of state-level laws.

Wow! The gorgeous woman was flaunting her ample cleavage in a daring dress.

Woah mama! Elizabeth previously said of the dress, 'That dress was a favour from Versace because I couldn't afford to buy one. Hugh's people told me they didn't have any evening wear, but there was one item left in their press office. So I tried it on and that was it'

Wow! Elizabeth had mentioned before that the dress was a gift from Versace, as she couldn’t afford to purchase one. When Hugh’s team informed her that they didn’t have any evening wear for her, Elizabeth tried on the only item available in their press office – and it turned out to be the perfect dress for her!

Red Sparrow, which came out on March 2nd, features Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian ballerina who is handpicked to become a ruthless spy. The movie required her to do a scene where she was supposed to stand in front of an entire classroom without any clothes on. The actress revealed that she had more confidence filming this scene compared to when she starred in Passengers three years ago. According to her, she doesn’t feel as afraid or insecure anymore in that specific area. She shared these thoughts with Entertainment Tonight.
