Jennifer Lawrence Stained ‘American Hustle’ Dress with Doritos
Actress Jennifer Lawrence is going to eat Doritos in a vintage costume, and you can't stop her!
Michael Wilkinson, Oscar-nominated costume director of “American Hustle,” told Vanity Fair that he created four different versions of a gown the 23-year-old wears in a key scene in the film.
Wilkinson explained, "Jennifer Lawrence is a very… let's say… raw and intuitive young lady, and she's not against eating Doritos and snack food in her costume. So we were glad that we had a couple [backups]."
Wilkinson said the low-cut white jersey dress was an important piece of director David O. Russell's vision for the con artist dramedy, which is set in the late '70s.
"David really had it set in his mind that she would be wearing this dress that she just poured herself into," Wilkinson said. "He wanted to see every single lump and bump. There had to be a sense of, 'Is she going to fall out of it?' It had this dangerous feeling to it, which matched her own dangerous mental landscape."
