Jennifer Lawrence just recently faced criticism when she stepped out for a Red Sparrow appearance in nothing other than a sleeveless dress — in 49-degree weather. In London for her current press tour with her male co-stars, Lawrence stood out as the only cast member not bundled in layers with a coat and scarf. But after the actress came to her own defense on Facebook, Hailey Baldwin spoke out to ensure that Lawrence’s move was not worth criticizing.
I can’t believe people are truly making it a thing that JLaw didn’t wear a coat over her dress… lemme tell u, we risk pneumonia for the LEWK. Don’t ever get it twisted!

“I can’t believe people are truly making it a thing that JLaw didn’t wear a coat over her dress…” the 21-year-old model tweeted, “lemme tell u, we risk pneumonia for the LEWK. Don’t ever get it twisted!”
After having just bared her legs in New York winter, Baldwin certainly knows what she’s talking about. And most other celebrities and street style stars do, as is evidenced by New York Fashion Week.
During some of the city’s coldest, snowiest, and rainiest days, influencers just like Baldwin trekked through the streets in their most fashionable outfits, no matter how unfit they were for the temperature.
As J.Law said herself, “Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!”
