Los Angeles, Nov 19 IANS | 2 years ago

Actress Jennifer Lawrence was initially reluctant to become the face of French luxury brand Dior until she saw the brand's creative director Raf Simons' work.

"At first, I kept telling everyone, 'I'm an actress, not a model, I'm not going to do it.' But then I came to Paris and went to Raf Simons' first show and was so blown away by his creations and his talent that I decided it would be stupid not to become a part of this designer's legacy," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Lawrence as saying.

Simons has said he was struck by Jennifer's "youth" and classic beauty" and her acting skills, which made him ask her to model for the brand.
