She may seem 'just like us', but are you set to be paid between $NZ18 million-$NZ24 million soon? For a movie? No, for wearing fancy dresses for three years.

Yes, at just 23, Jennifer Lawrence reportedly has Dior, one of the world's most adored fashion houses, ready to cough up millions of dollars so that she continues to wear their designs on the major red carpets she walks down. 

We've been majorly disappointed with how Dior has dressed Jennifer on the red carpet and miss the more modern pieces she wore pre-Dior deal, the flashes of gold goddess she showed off in Prabal Gurung and Ralph Lauren at 2012's Hunger Games premieres show just how fierce she can look when dressed well (head to picture 3 to see them).

Lawrence was first signed up by French fashion house Dior when its creative director Raf Simons saw her in the Hunger Games movies and was taken aback by her, in his words, "youth and her classic beauty, but also her force of character and the complexity she's capable of embodying at such a young age." 

The money spent tying up with her turned out to be a great investment for the couture label, with the young actress raking in the accolades - and therefore having the spotlight aimed firmly at her - just months after the collaboration began. 

In fact, fashion mishaps have been the real publicity grabbers for Dior when it comes to J-Law - last year everyone talked about her SAG Awards dress 'ripping' (it turned out to be part of the design) and then, of course, her famous Oscar stage trip was also the talk of the town. 

American gossip site Page Six says the three-year deal is currently "being brokered through her agents" and that Dior wants Lawrence "to dress exclusively [in their designs] for the red carpet and shut out other design houses that are vying to work with the actress".

Umm, doesn't she already wear Dior and only Dior? 

Well at least signing this deal would give her a bulletproof excuse when Harvey Weinstein's people come a-knocking asking her to wear Marchesa (his wife is the label's designer).
