The actress paid tribute to the late designer, wearing one of his latest creations at Elle's annual Women in Hollywood event

The Dress: An ivory long-sleeved lace frock from Oscar de la Renta's spring 2015 collection.

The Wearer: Jennifer Lawrence, who last wore the American label during the SAG Awards in 2011.

The Event: Elle's 21st Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration on Monday evening, when news broke that the designer had died at age 82.

Why We Dig: In light of the heartbreaking de la Renta news, it was almost a fitting tribute to see one of our favorite Oscar-winning actresses wear one of his flattering designs. Accessories were key in keeping this ensemble from looking too conservative — a black belt, strappy Louboutins and a metallic Rodo clutch added an edgy flair to the feminine frock. Though we dig when the 24-year-old chooses Dior for evening wear, it's always refreshing to see her work it in other designer's wares. In this case, J. Law's well-executed look was the perfect choice for the event, where she was joined by ODLR fans Jennifer Garner, Kerry Washington and Tina Fey. Her bold red lip and tousled hair were the finishing touches to this homerun look that struck a perfect balance between being ladylike and tough.
