What: Though her star in the fashion universe (pun not intended) has been fading, Nicole made a triumphant return during her time across the pond for Paris Fashion Week.

A recent Oscar-winning actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence is possibly the world’s most endearing Hollywood starlet. With responses like these, it’s kind of an instinctual reaction to fall in love with her.
