The countdown to the Academy Awards has officially begun, and so has the buzz around what the nominees will be wearing.
Nominated actresses shared their gown plans with reporters at a Beverly Hills luncheon in their honor Monday.
Though Jennifer Lawrence joked, “I’m going to wear sweatpants,” it turns out just the opposite is true. “Last time was comfort. This year, I’m like, ‘Suck it up, wear a corset,’” she said. “I am going to go for fashion this time.”
Last year, before donning her skintight red Calvin Klein Collection number, “I ate a Philly cheesesteak and fries, and I was like ‘This is definitely going to help,’” she said. “It didn’t, ‘cause I had to double-Spanx it.”
