Jennifer Lawrence leads the jumpsuit trend in midnight blue Stella McCartney

Silver Linings Playbook actress donned British designer for Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California

Jennifer Lawrence caused a stir at the SAG Awards recently in her custom-made Dior Haute Couture gown.

So it comes as no surprise that the Silver Linings Playbook actress opted for a safer option as she re-set the jumpsuit trend in Santa Barbara at the weekend.
