Bold move, Jennifer Lawrence. Lest ye be ignored by faithful fans and paparazzi in favor of other celebrities, you have played the ultimate trump card: a full-on, head-to-toe sequined outfit. Yes, it's gorgeous. Yes, it's a little Las Vegas night out with Blanche DuBois. But, who said those two things are mutually exclusive?

On the eve of an Oscars nomination for best actress in Silver Linings Playbook, she rocked the red carpet at the People's Choice Awards — where she won Favorite Movie Actress, Favorite Face of Heroism, and Favorite On-Screen Chemistry — in a very glam getup, complete with bedazzled Nicholas Kirkwood soles and a healthy tan to match. Though the shoulders and sleeves maintain a distinct, more mature vibe, the shape of the skirt and the mesh neckline bring this Valentino number into the modern age. The luxury label was a popular choice last night for a number of stars, and though Jennifer's look could go either way, we think she's pulling it off.

Are you a fan of this vaguely '80s ensemble, or is it a too-literal iteration of granny-chic?
