Jennifer Lawrence proved she will make the most beautiful bride as she celebrated her engagement to Cooke Maroney at the weekend. The Oscar-winning actress attended her engagement party in a gorgeous wedding dress that had an extra-special sentimental meaning to her – as it was designed by her cousin Lauren Wells.

The Juliana gown was from bridal designer Lauren's label, L. Wells, and features sheer full sleeves, a plunging neckline and thigh-high split. The blush-coloured dress retails for $2,300 (around £1,777), and Jennifer accessorised with a complementing Roger Vivier handbag, Fred Leighton earrings, and Casadei shoes. With her hair styled into an elegant updo by Ben Skirvin and pretty makeup courtesy of Fulvia Farolfi, it was a breath-taking look from the bride-to-be.

Jennifer confirmed her engagement to Cooke in February, after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on a date in New York. The couple were first linked in June 2018 and were believed to have been introduced by Jennifer's best friend Laura Simpson, but have made an effort to keep their relationship away from the public eye, following her high profile relationships with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and actor Nicholas Hoult.
