On the accessories front, the Oscar winner wore a pair of light, gold-rimmed sunglasses, and wore a pale pink baseball cap with the title of Wong Kar Wai’s heart-wrenching romance In the Mood for Love embroidered in red thread. The film—which take place across Hong Kong and France—is one of the most critically beloved films of the century, if not all time. So, in her low key baseball cap, Jennifer Lawrence is flexing her impeccable movie taste. (J-Law if you are reading this, share your Letterboxd!)
Lawrence took a walk with her son Cy in an oversized look: a tomato red knit lapel collared v-neck sweater with the sleeves rolled up over a white crew neck tee. On the bottom, she wore a pair of flowy black trousers, which revealed a pair of red flats. Forget the subtle “pop of red” styling; Lawrence is going all in on the color of the season.
Our favorite films say a lot about us—a fact that’s not lost on the college boys who tape Pulp Fiction posters to their dorm walls, or the Letterboxd users who spend hours painstakingly curating their Top 4 films to be the perfect mixture of indie and crowd-pleasing. But as Jennifer Lawrence proved today, movie merch can also be an off-the-cuff sartorial expression.
She isn’t the only one who’s been using their headwear to communicate their interests lately. Just last week, Emily Ratajkowski took a stroll in New York in a navy baseball cap which boasted The Paris Review in pale pink embroidery. Perhaps these two cultured women should start a merch company.
