Jennifer Lawrence is the cover star of American Vogue’s 125th anniversary edition. 

The ‘American Hustle’ star was photographed by modern icons of imagery Annie Liebovitz, Bruce Weber and dynamic duo Inez and Vinoodh.

The showstopper, however, is a hauntingly beautiful illustration by artist John Currin, as fans on social media will have you know.

Vogue has long been the reigning queen of commercial fashion magazines, but back in the day it was particularly known for pushing the boundaries of style and art with creative finesse. 

Vintage lovers and fashionistas would recognise the stylistic take of each JLaw cover as a nod to the pages of old society magazines (of which Vogue was a firm favourite).

You can see the influence of some of Lawrence’s most iconic roles (so far) in each editorial - from ‘Serena’, ‘American Hustle’ and ‘Passengers’.

But the magic is the looks are also in keeping with Vogue’s editorial aesthetic. 

Now that’s what we call teamwork.
