Jennifer Lawrence Just Embraced the Controversial Y2K Drop-Waist Trend

Those who experienced the late 1990s and early 2000s are entitled to revive the era’s contentious fashion trends. This is demonstrated by the recent attire Jennifer Lawrence wore, as she flawlessly presented a modern interpretation of the drop-waist dress. Specifically, on February 24th, the actress donned an ensemble from Alaïa’s spring 2023 ready-to-wear line.

Jennifer Lawrence Used a Controversial Drop-Waist Trend from the 90sJennifer Lawrence in a Drop-Waist Look

Jennifer Lawrence’s outfit showcased a well-tailored blazer with a gathered drop-waist and a lengthy leather skirt. This may have been possible due to her choice of footwear, the cabaret pumps, from Alaïa’s collection, which were frequently showcased by Pieter Mulier, the creative designer. In contrast to the models on the runway, Lawrence kept the blazer lapels unbuttoned, exposing some skin and flaunting a daring appearance. Her blonde locks cascaded down in relaxed waves, and she finished the look with a soft smoky eye and a nude-pink lip.

As fashion trends shift towards low-rise attire, the proportion-altering style has regained popularity in 2023, and we have already observed elongated looks on several catwalks this year. Anne Hathaway, at the age of 40, recently showcased a similar look from Alaïa during the Berlin International Film Festival. Rather than opting for structured shoulders, she embraced the fluidity of the silhouette with a black hooded dress that featured a gathered leather drop waist and a prominent silver zipper. She also adorned a pair of Alaïa’s fanciful cabaret heels but chose the strappy sandals instead.

Y2K Trends Are Resurfacing

According to Erin Walsh, the stylist who works frequently with Anne Hathaway, various styles can look good if one has the confidence to pull them off. She stated that when a person feels confident in their attire, it shows in their appearance. “Annie” Hathaway, as Walsh refers to her, exudes radiance not only because of her clothing but also because she taps into her potential and welcomes opportunities. Walsh further expressed that they enjoy experimenting with fashion and strive to achieve a balance of effortless and unconventional styles.

Adam Lambert Turned Into an Elderly Version of Himself for a VideoRecently, Adam Lambert unveiled his music video for “Getting Older,” and it features him getting completely transformed into a much elderly version of himself. The transformation was done with the help of both prosthetics and makeup and is a fitting look for the message of the song. Eilish’s “Getting Older” is about a young musician becoming disillusioned with their art after facing the opinions of deranged fans and dealing with superstar status. Lambert has a more literal take and decided to make himself older for his video.

In a recent interview, Lambert detailed his step-by-step transformation and pointed out how he had always wanted to do a complete makeup transformation. He added that although it took around four hours, the result was so lifelike he felt it was all worth it. Regarding the song’s sentiment, the singer said that no matter how old a person is, they would feel the things that the lyrics described. He also remarked that singing the song felt very confessional to him.

The Album Is Filled With Covers

“Getting Older” is featured on Adam Lambert’s new album, High Drama. It is filled with covers and drops on February 24th, 2023. High Drama marks his fifth solo album since he won second place on American Idol in 2009. Since then, he has also toured extensively with the legendary rock band Queen and took the role of a stand-in for the late singer Freddie Mercury. In 2020, Queen released a live compilation album called Live Around the World, featuring songs they played live with Adam Lambert.
