Leave it to Jennifer Lawrence to provide a jolt of Joy to the 88th Academy Awards red carpet. The 2016 best actress Oscar nominee arrived in a stunning black Dior Haute Couture dress with a lace bodice and ruffled skirt. Our immediate reaction? J’adore!

The quick-witted beauty has regularly turned to the French fashion house for dazzling custom creations. And while Sunday's ensemble shone brightly, her sleek 'do also captured much of the attention. For the star-studded occasion, Lawrence lightened up her strands and wore them in a center-parted lob that perfectly complemented the winning frock and highlighted her radiant skin. The 25-year-old actress's straightened tresses served as a sharp, modern contrast to her gown's dramatic tiers.

And those weren't the only ways the Hunger Games star stood out from the A-list pack: Her nails were painted black, a striking contrast to the bright, pastel colors that dotted the red carpet.
