However, the internet immediately started comparing Lawrence's gown to her male co-stars' heavy coats and winter attire.
Trolls expressed "worry" over the fact that Lawrence — the only woman in the photo — was "forced" to wear a sexy outfit while the men could wear warmer clothing.
But Lawrence found the internet's fake concern to be infuriatingly sexist.
She addressed the controversy in a scathing Facebook post.
"Wow," Lawrence began. "I don't really know where to get started on this 'Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold' controversy. This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf?"
She noted that she was only outside for five minutes, but that is beside the point.
"I was outside for 5 minutes [but] I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice," Lawrence continued. "This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism."
She concluded her post with a final warning to her followers.
"Overreacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward," Lawrence insisted. "It's creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people."
