So, yes, Jennifer Lawrence truly won last year.

Given this A-list triumph, it makes a lot of sense that she landed the September issue of US Vogue this year (we go into what a big deal that is here), and she looks fabulous on the cover.

Well now the full editorial spread has been revealed, and for the most part, the 23-year-old looks resplendent in the pictures by Mario Testino, wearing Fall 2013 pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Rochas, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton.

Surprisingly, however, there's no Dior: which perhaps signals an end to her endorsement deal with the brand?

We're huge fans of J-Law here at L&S (and before you complain about the annoying celebrity nickname, she reveals in the Vogue interview that she's been called that since she was 12) - and so were extra perturbed to see that Vogue seems to have Photoshopped her thigh into oblivion in one of the pictures.

First Claire Danes' leg, now this:

Just out for a stroll with your pup in satin knickers. You know, as you do... 

The Oscar-winning actress is the proud owner of a stunning hourglass figure, but is also one very slender lady (see the picture at the top of the page, also from the Vogue, that shows her thighs looking more human) and yet this snap seems to have shaded her thigh into something of Barbie-proportions. 

Why?!

This isn't the first time Lawrence has been touched with a digital brush. She famously didn't recognise herself in her Miss Dior campaign when shown the images for the first time by Access Hollywood. 

"That doesn't look like me at all!" she exclaimed. "I love Photoshop more than anything in the world. Of course it's Photoshop, people don't look like that." (Perhaps this little comment on the campaign is the reason behind the lack of Dior clothes in the Vogue shoot). Here's the snap in question: 

Over-zealous post-production aside, Lawrence comes across as completely down-to-earth and fully aware of fame's trappings in the Vogue interview (as is to be expected). 

Here are some highlights...

On the paparazzi: "If I were just your average 23-year-old girl and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma'am, there's nothing we can do. It makes no sense... I am just not OK with it. It's as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven't been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I'm not going to find peace with it." 

Ad Feedback

On being like Katniss (well, a little bit): "When Winter's Bone was getting nominated, I had only done indies, and suddenly I was introduced to this brand-new world where I didn't feel like myself. I was in these weird gowns and listening to people talk about things I didn't understand. And I remember reading that in the book and being like, Oh, my God, I know exactly what this feels like. I don't know what it's like to get ready for your death, but I do know what it's like to be almost a puppet."   

And here's some live-motion J-Law from the Vogue shoot (just to really hammer in the fact that she didn't need any Photoshoppnig)... 

Oh, and here's a compilation of some of her funniest moments. Why? Just because...
