Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence's Silver Linings Playbook clothes up for sale


Outfits worn by Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook, the role for which she was awarded an Oscar on Sunday,  are being auctioned online.

The lots include the custom-made skin-tight white trousers made especially for Lawrence from the film’s climatic ballroom dance scene, her full-length black double breasted wool coat and a blue sports bra.

Memorabilia dealer Nate D. Sanders put the items on auction two days after the Oscar’s ceremony. The items are expected to sell for between $500 and $1,500 following Lawrence’s best actress Oscar win for her performance in the film.

The black coat from the film currently has the highest bid at $1,491, followed by the tailor-made “stretchy vanilla pants” at $763.

Nine items worn by Lawrence’s co-star Bradley Cooper are also on auction. The clothes include a grey hoodie and plain t-shirts. Currently all bids for Bradley Cooper’s clothing sit at $100. The auction closes on Thursday 28 February.

The 22-year-old won best actress at the Oscars and Golden Globes for her portrayal of young widow Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook.

Her ex-boyfriend, British actor Nicholas Hoult, recently said he was very proud of her Oscar win. “It’s a great film and she’s fantastic in it, so I’m very happy for her,” he said. The two met on the set of X-Men: First class in 2011.
