Jennifer Lawrence in a scene from American Hustle
Jennifer Lawrence has sparked a surge within the sale of Seventies-inspired clothes, due to her role within the Oscar-nominated, American Hustle.
The film, also starring Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper is ready in 1970s America, and as such, is stuffed with amazing 70s outfits provided by the likes of Halston, Diane von Furstenburg and Gucci. In case you haven’t already seen it (what have you ever been doing?), think navel-grazing necklines, big hair and lots of gold jewellery.
It seems we’re all a bit smitten with J-Law’s look within the movie, with sales of the enduring wrap dress, made famous 40 years ago by Diane von Furstenburg, rising by a big 201%.
Gold bangles and stilettos also seem to subject to the yankee Hustle effect, with sales rising by 233% and 103% retrospectively.
eBay spokesperson, Laura Wilkinson-Rea says of the rage: ‘It seems that American Hustle has inspired Brits to bring some iconic 70s style back into their lives. With over 27,300 listings of wrap dresses and 1,750 lava lamps currently at the site, eBay is the ideal platform for Brits to locate their favourite 70’s style.’
Given how amazing both Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams look inside the movie, we aren’t surprised. We’re totally bidding on some vintage Furstenburg immediately.
