Jennifer Lawrence has already settled upon a dress for her wedding day.
The Hunger Games actress got engaged to art dealer Cooke Maroney in February after a whirlwind romance, and they celebrated their impending nuptials with an engagement party in New York, where they’re based, in May.
She hasn’t revealed when the big day will take place, but during an appearance on the Naked with Catt Sadler podcast, Jennifer explained that she already has some important decisions ticked off her to-do list.
“I’ve been in a good place,” the 28-year-old said. “I haven’t been neurotic about (wedding planning). I’m like too lazy to be neurotic. I saw a dress I liked, and I was like, ‘That’s the dress.’ I saw a venue and I was like, ‘Cool, we got the venue.'”
The Oscar-winning actress, who serves as a brand ambassador for French luxury fashion house Christian Dior, also admitted the only time she had a “bridezilla moment” and broke down in tears was when she changed her mind about having a bachelorette party and discovered a lot of her friends couldn’t come.
“I thought I didn’t want to have a bachelorette party, and then last minute I decided I did,” Jennifer explained. “Then nobody was available because it was last minute. And then I started crying. I was like, ‘I don’t even know why I’m crying. I didn’t know that I wanted a bachelorette party. I guess I just feel pathetic.’ (Cooke) was like, ‘Oh my God, you don’t need to feel pathetic.'”
Jennifer added that she is rescheduling the party with her friends and is preparing to head back to work in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Rosanna Arquette has ditched high heels for good.
The 59-year-old actress revealed her style choice at the Women In Film Gala in Beverly Hills earlier this week, where she wore a white tuxedo jacket and silver sequinned trousers with silver round-toe flats.
“I’m in flats because my feet hurt,” Arquette told Footwear News on the red carpet. “I’m getting too old. Why am I punishing myself? Who is it really for? It’s not for me, so I decided to be comfortable.”
However, comfort isn’t the sole reason the Desperately Seeking Susan star is favouring flats.
“I don’t know how to walk in heels still; I’m the worst. I look like I’m dressing up and I’m three years old and I’m in my mom’s heels,” she joked.
The last time Arquette tried to walk in heels was a turn on the runway for the Heart Truth Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection in February, and she confessed it was “embarrassing.”
Another famous face joining the actress in wearing flats was Amy Poehler, who teamed a pair of white Nike sneakers with a black blazer and trousers.
The Parks and Recreation star was honoured with the Entrepreneur in Entertainment Award for nurturing the advancement of female collaborators, and other winners on the night included Issa Rae, who received the Emerging Entrepreneur Award, and Cathy Schulman, who was presented with The Crystal Award for Advocacy in Entertainment.
Another honouree was Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki, who received the Max Mara Face of the Future Award at the annual gala, which recognises the entrepreneurial achievements of women in the movie industry.

Skechers is bringing back an iconic footwear style made famous by Britney Spears.
The California-based company first introduced the Skechers Energy design, a sneaker with chunky sole, to the market in 1999 and tapped the Toxic hitmaker to appear in an accompanying campaign.
Now, fans of the Energy can shop three new limited-edition colourways, including classic white and metallic silver, with each pair featuring the ’90s-era Skechers logo.
“When we look back at the thousands of styles released over the 27 years since we established Skechers, the Skechers Energy really stands out as a look that helped define our brand just as we were hitting our stride,” stated Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers.
“With Britney Spears as the face of the Skechers Energy at launch, it became our first massive global hit style and helped drive awareness for the Skechers brand around the world. We love that the chunky design Skechers originated is now all the rage in fashion footwear, driving massive excitement for our Skechers D’Lites collection. This anniversary is a perfect opportunity to re-introduce old and new Skechers fans to the style that started it all.”
The launch of the three new Energy styles is just the start of the revival, with an expanded collection featuring updated colours rolling out through the year.
Items are now available to buy from Skechers retail stores, the brand’s website and at select retail partners.
Executives at Skechers, which was founded in 1992, claim the Energy remains a best-seller, with an estimated 100 million pairs sold around the world to date.

Dakota Fanning doesn’t deny herself any treats because she has a “huge sweet tooth”.
The actress likes being active and aims to work out six days a week, but she believes people should be allowed to indulge in a little bit of what they fancy, because denying themselves what they enjoy isn’t sustainable.
“I’ve become a much healthier eater. I typically have yoghurt or eggs after my morning workout, a salad for lunch, and a grilled protein with quinoa and vegetables for dinner. But I’m definitely not the kind of person who says, ‘I don’t eat sugar or carbs,’ or ‘I don’t drink caffeine and wine.’ That’s never going to happen. I have a huge sweet tooth,” she told Shape magazine.
Whenever she visits her parents’ home in Los Angeles, Dakota and her mother always treat themselves to Baskin-Robbins ice cream for dessert.
“Eating is all about moderation. If I’m going to a restaurant that’s famous for its pasta, I’m going to eat the pasta. I don’t limit myself. That’s not sustainable. You have to indulge. Food is supposed to be fun and pleasurable,” the 25-year-old continued.
In the interview, The Alienist star also explained how she enjoys taking Cardio Barre, a ballet-inspired cardio class, as well as AKT, a dance-based cardio and strength class, and makes sure she has a bath every night to unwind from a hectic day.
“I have a really good ritual to help me unwind. I take a bath every night, no matter what. I put on a podcast, get in the tub, and close my eyes,” Dakota said. “This routine is such a constant in my life; I can’t live without it. If I’m in a hotel and there isn’t a tub, I have to move. It’s like, ‘No, I won’t. I can’t. I’ve got to have a bath.'”

Cardi B was forced to perform in a bathrobe at the Bonnaroo music festival on Sunday night, after her sparkly catsuit ripped.
The I Like It rapper had taken to the stage in Manchester, Tennessee looking incredible in her multi-coloured one-piece – much to the delight of eager fans who had wondered if she’d make it considering she’s had to cancel several recent shows due to plastic surgery complications.
However, after performing just a couple of songs, Cardi informed the audience of her wardrobe malfunction – a rip down the seam of the catsuit – which meant her bottom was more on show than she would have liked.
“I just wanna let y’all know that my outfit rip (sic),” the 26-year-old told the crowd, going on to push through the set for a couple more songs before disappearing off the stage.
After the audience kept themselves busy by singing Old Town Road during her absence, Cardi returned to the stage wearing a white bathrobe.
“We gonna keep it moving, baby,” she smiled. “We gonna keep it sexy. I don’t know how in this f**king robe, but we gonna do it!”
The mother-of-one still managed to inject some sex appeal into her 45-minute set, pulling back the robe to show off her strapless bra and thong, before eventually tying it around her waist so just her bottom half was concealed.
Earlier in the day, Cardi had taken to Instagram to mark Father’s Day for husband Offset. Sharing a picture of the Migos star with their 11-month-old daughter Kulture, she wrote: “Happy Father’s Day my love. I love how you always thinking about your kids’ future and the way you love them. FATHEROF4.”
Offset, 27, also has three other children from previous relationships.

Tessa Thompson has gushed over the futuristic gown she wore to the Men in Black: International premiere on Tuesday night.
The actress, who plays new MIB recruit Agent M in the spin-off of the hit franchise, embraced the sci-fi theme when she stepped out at the AMC Lincoln Square in New York City for the film’s debut in a silver Rodarte dress with high-low hemline.
Taking to Instagram to share a slideshow of images of her posing on the black carpet, Tessa thanked Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy for embracing her vision and supporting her over the years.
“@Rodarte dressed me for my first big premiere years ago & 4 last night’s debut of @mib_international they made this dress special for me. Luv u (sic) so much @kateandlauramulleavy . Endless thanks. & to the dreamy team that got me ready,” the 35-year-old wrote in the caption.
Tessa topped off her look with silver platform heels and a moon-shaped purse from Judith Leiber, while her make-up artist gave her a slick of iridescent eyeshadow on her lids.
Accordingly, Kate and Laura shared their excitement over the look too, commenting on the post, “We love you Tessa!!!!!!!! You are magic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
The post caught the attention of a number of Tessa’s celebrity pals too, with La La Anthony writing, “Beyond,” with a string of fire emojis, and her Creed co-star Michael B. Jordan commenting, “Such a fan!”
Tessa’s Men in Black: International co-star Chris Hemsworth, who takes on the role of Agent H, also attended the event, looking handsome in a Dolce & Gabbana suit, while the actor’s wife Elsa Pataky rocked a white Armani ensemble.
Men in Black: International opens in cinemas from 13 June.

Snoop Dogg has teamed with British footwear brand Duke + Dexter to create his own collection.
The Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper has created a limited-edition line comprised of 18 Duke + Dexter styles, including the Duke slipper-style loafers, Reed mules and Dexter slides. Each pair is inspired by the “pool to party” lifestyle and features Snoop Dogg motifs, such as the marijuana leaf, dice and his face.
“I wanted to try to bring something new and fresh to the collaboration and products. Snoop is such a legend and the weight of doing this well was always in mind,” Lee Rogers, head of product at Duke + Dexter, said in a statement.
”I really wanted to find a quote/lyric that could help encapsulate what Duke + Dexter are as a brand and what Snoop represents. The lyric we decided to use was, ‘La di da di, we likes to party we don’t cause no trouble, we don’t bother nobody…'” he added, referring to Snoop’s ’90s song Lodi Dodi, his cover of Doug E. Fresh’s La Di Da Di.
Only 1,000 pairs of each style have been made, with the shoes priced between $202 and $304 (£160 – £240).
The Snoop Dogg collection, which also includes poker chips, playing cards and a tote bag, launched earlier this week. Items are available to purchase from the Duke + Dexter website, the brand’s boutique in London’s Covent Garden, and at the Selfridges department store.
Duke + Dexter, which relaunched in March, boasts celebrity clients like Eddie Redmayne, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Reynolds. All shoes are designed in London and handmade in a family-run workshop in Sheffield, England.

Taylor Swift will celebrate the launch of her new album by collaborating with top fashion designer Stella McCartney on a special clothing collection.
The Shake It Off hitmaker confirmed her latest release, Lover, will drop on 23 August, and in an Instagram Live video on Thursday, Taylor revealed she had joined forces with the 47-year-old designer.
“Another thing I wanted to tell you… for the release of the Lover album, there’s gonna be a collaboration that I’ve done with Stella McCartney,” she told her fans.
“She’s been a friend for a really long time, and also just a woman I respect so much,” Taylor gushed, before explaining that the collection will be inspired by her songs.
“I respect what she creates, how she creates it. There’s so much whimsy and imagination and romance to the clothing that she designs, and I’ve worn a lot of her stuff recently,” she added.
The Bad Blood hitmaker has worn several pieces by British designer McCartney, including the plunging baby blue tulle gown she wore to accompany boyfriend Joe Alwyn to the BAFTAs after-parties earlier this year.
More details about the collaboration will be shared closer to the launch in August, although she did explain that the tone of her new music is “really romantic” – just like McCartney’s feminine styles.
“She’s heard the new album, and this new collaboration is inspired by the Lover album… I’m so excited about that, and really excited that she would want to collaborate in this way,” Taylor added.
Lover will serve as the follow-up to 2017’s Reputation.

Jennifer Lopez’s longtime stylist Rob Zangardi is determined for her to shine “like a diamond” during the It’s My Party tour.
Jennifer kicked off her gigs in Los Angeles at the beginning of June and will be ending her trek in Russia on 11 August.
Rob pieced together the 19 costumes the On the Floor hitmaker wears during the show, as well as the 176 outfits for her dancers.
“Sparkle is incredibly effective for a big show like Jennifer’s,” Rob explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “On stage, things translate so differently. When you have an intimate setting or a smaller venue, it’s important to see the artist’s face, what they’re doing and not distract too much with the costumes. But when you’re performing for 20,000 people in an arena, the people way in the back need to see you and nothing’s more exciting than seeing J.Lo shining like a diamond onstage.
“And that’s a J.Lo staple. Jennifer has always loved the sparkle, the jewellery and the more-is-more mentality – for everything that she does.”
Explaining how involved Jennifer is when it comes to her stage costumes, Rob shared that together they put together mood boards based on the 49-year-old star’s idea for each section with colour palettes and an overall vibe.
The next stage saw Rob reach out to the designers who suit the different ideas. Versace, Guess, Zuhair Murad, Giambattista Valli, Balenciaga and Marchesa are among the big-name fashion houses who contributed to Jennifer’s tour wardrobe.
“(We approach designers) who we have relationships with or who Jennifer wants to make sure are in the show. One of them always is Versace, so we’ll reach out to their team and give them the concept,” Rob added.
