Dior has a brand new muse and she just happens to be one of our favorite young actresses: Jennifer Lawrence.

So what exactly does being the face of the fashion house mean for Lawrence? She’ll front the spring/summer 2013 Miss Dior bag campaign (Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard have starred in previous seasons’ ads), which you will spot in magazines starting next March.

“It’s such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion,” the actress said in a statement. “I’m so excited to be working with the fashion house and wear the new creations by Raf Simons.” (Simons was named the creative director of Dior in April, after serving as the designer behind Jil Sander.)

Not only will you see Lawrence in Dior in the pages of magazines, but you can also expect to see the Hunger Games star wearing quite a bit of Dior on the red carpet this awards season. Not that donning Dior dresses will be such a change of pace for the actress; recently (perhaps in anticipation of the announcement?), she’s been selecting the label for a number of appearances.

Just last month, she wore a gothic-glam tie-dye couture dress from Simons’s debut collection. And previously she slipped into two ready-to-wear dresses by the designer including a tiered navy mini at the Toronto Film Festival in August, and a floral orange number at the label’s couture show in Paris this summer.

But with access to pretty much any Dior look imaginable, which will she choose for her next big awards show? If it were up to us, we’d have her walk the carpet in the finale look from the spring 2013 show: an iridescent rose-printed full-skirted gown with a black sleeveless top. If anyone could pull that off, it’s the new face of Miss Dior, don’t you think? Tell us: Is Lawrence the right pick for the new Dior campaign? What other actress do you think would be a good fit for the brand?
