SINGAPORE - American actress Jennifer Lawrence on Wednesday (Feb 21) hit back at critics after a photo of her wearing a black gown with a plunging neckline drew extreme reactions.
Many commentators focused on the fact that she wore the revealing outfit in cold weather at the Red Sparrow movie promo, while her fellow male actors were bundled up in winter wear.
British news portal Daily Mail noted that Lawrence's figure-hugging dress has "a near-identical shape" to the famous gown worn by British actress Elizabeth Hurley to a Los Angeles party in 1994.
Here are five other famous revealing outfits worn by celebrities:
1. Jennifer Lopez's Versace dress at the 2000 Grammy Awards
Possibly one of the most memorable dresses worn on the Grammy red carpet, singer and actress Jennifer Lopez generated headlines in 2000 when she appeared in a sheer, low-cut silk chiffon Versace dress.
The green tropical-print gown had a low neckline that extended well past her navel, with a high slit in the front as well.
