Jennifer Lawerence in Red Sparrow

Although Red Sparrow has been on my "to-watch list" for some time, I didn't get around to seeing it until I was on a flight back from Austin to NY last weekend.  The movie stars Jennifer Lawerence as Dominika, a Russian ballerina who suffers an injury and then must find an alternative source of income for her family.  Her uncle sends her to "Sparrow School," where she learns to work as a government spy, often requiring her to use her body to manipulate and seduce her targets.  Many of the scenes are extremely hard to watch, and I can't say I was captivated by the story- but what I was captivated by was Lawerence's wardrobe in the film.  I already have a rather massive girl crush on J Law (it started with this role, I think), and the costumes her character wears throughout the film were just perfect.  My favorites were the all-black ensembles.

Exhibit A:

Making an entrance in a 20s-era black silk gown paired with black mary jane pumps.

Carolina Constas Maris Lace Panel Gown (love this one too), $795:

Exhibit D:

Last note:  Dominika's platinum blonde in the film is my dream hair hue:

The costume designer for Red Sparrow was Trish Sommerville, who has worked on The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and is clearly well-versed on dressing strong female characters.  You can read more about her inspiration for the clothing in Red Sparrow here.
