The Dior brand has come under fire for casting actress Jennifer Lawrence as the star of their new fashion campaign that celebrates Mexican culture.

“One of the main inspirations for this collection is the traditional women riders of Mexico,” Lawrence said about the campaign. “I am really excited that this collection is looking at and celebrating these women’s heritage through such a modern lens.”  Jennifer’s excitement for the campaign was met with ire from others on social media who said, “Get a Mexican model. This is so far off the mark it’s crazy and I can’t believe more people aren’t discussing it.” It is a deep discussion on social media, and there are those that think the opposite.  Dior hasn’t commented on the controversy, but did point out that their latest magazine issue features stories from Mexico that were shot by Mexican photographers.
