Jennifer Lawrence gets four Vogue covers for September issue
Jennifer Lawrence has made not one, not two, not three, but four appearances on the cover of Vogue's prestigious September issue this year, as the fashion tome reveals four separate covers to celebrate its 125th anniversary.
The actress, who has previously appeared on the cover of Vogue twice, appears in three cover photographs for the magazine, as well as a painted portrait by US artist John Currin.
The painting shows Lawrence in a rather flamboyant white and pink fur Miu Miu hat.
It is the first time the September issue, noted as the magazine's highest selling issue each year, has featured a painted cover, although painted works have previously appeared on the front of the magazine. Salvador Dalí, notably, has painted four Vogue covers.

This year's September issue photographic covers were shot by Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber and Dutch duo Inez and Vinoodh.
Speaking about the painted cover within the magazine's pages, Lawrence said she was unsure if she was entitled to the painting.
"How do I broach that?" she asked interviewer Jason Gay. "Who else would want it?"
Lawrence had a characteristically candid sit-down with Gay, drinking bourbon and discussing her reputation as a "regular person".
"That's what other people have said," she clarified. "If I'd said, 'I'm a regular person,' I'd want to kill myself."
She also spoke publicly for the first time about her relationship with boyfriend of one year, director Darren Aronofsky, who she met on the set of her new horror film, Mother!.
"We had energy. I had energy for him. I don't know how he felt about me," she said, adding, "I normally don't like Harvard people, because they can't go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He's not like that."
But that's not to say he isn't a bit high brow.
Although Lawrence has admitted to having a love of reality television - the Oscar winner told Vogue she had to have a tent on set where she watched Keeping Up with the Kardashians to help get through some of the film's particularly intense scenes - Aronofsky does not seem to be a fan.
"I wasn't involved in that," he said. "I was like, 'What are you talking about, 'the Kardashians'?"
