She may have been anything but glamorous for her role in the Oscar nominated fim "Winter's Bone," but Jennifer Lawrence is going high fashion for her newest career move. The fan favorite and current Hollywood "It Girl" is now the spokesmodel for iconic fashion house, Dior.

People reports the "Hunger Games" star will be the face of the upcoming spring/summer 2013 Miss Dior handbag campaign, replacing the label's previous muse, "Black Swan" actress Mila Kunis. The ads are set to debut this coming March. With her foray into the brand, she'll join a rap sheet of other A-List predecessors, including Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, and Marion Cotillard.

When explaining why the 22-year-old was the right fit for Dior, creative director Raf Simons said in a press release, "Her youth and her classic beauty, but also the feminine strength and complexity that she can portray at such a young age are, for me, very unique and very appealing."

The campaign will be Lawrence's first time collaborating with a luxury fashion brand, but she seems nothing but eager. In a statement by the actress, she expressed her excitement, saying, "It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion, I’m so excited to be working with the fashion house and wear the new creations by Raf Simons.”
