Hunger Games star and award winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, who was recently the center of attention because of the iCloud photo hacking scandal involving other celebrities such as Kate Upton, Becca Tobin, Hope Solo, Teresa Palmer, Krysten Ritter, McKayla Maroney among others is set to co-host the biggest fashion event of the year – the Met Gala Ball – in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has confirmed.
The event will take place on 4 May 2015, and will see Lawrence co-chair the annual Ball alongside US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Wendi Deng Murdoch (steely businesswoman and Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife), Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Chinese actress Gong Li.
“Chinese Whispers will primarily examine how eastward-looking Westerners have understood, misunderstood and appropriated Chinese culture in an exchange that Bolton [Andrew, curator in the museum’s Costume Institute] likens to a complicated game of telephone (which the British call ‘Chinese whispers’),” a Vogue description of the event reads.
The 2014 event was co-chaired by Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper.
Lawrence will once again appear opposite her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper in new film Serena, which will be released on 24 October in the UK.
Among others the list included Ariana Grande, Jessica Brown Findlay, Mary E Winstead, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Mary Kate Olsen, Mary E Winstead, Cara Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and Kaley Cuoco.
The FBI and Apple are both conducting investigations into the apparent widespread invasion of personal accounts thought to be connected to the iCloud service.
A spokesperson for Lawrence said: “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Justice and Grande said that the pictures are fake, although Lawrence’s spokesperson verified the mages of the actress were authentic.
Meanwhile, representatives for Upton said they were “looking into” the authenticity of the indecent images.
