Dior under fire for 'Mexican' inspired collection featuring Jennifer Lawrence



- Christian Dior is facing backlash after launching a new collection inspired by "Mexican women" that features no Mexicans in the campaign, but rather actress Jennifer Lawrence.

- The ad shows JLaw modeling ornately embroidered handbags and dresses created to resemble the style of escaramuza horseback riders. (Escaramuza is a female equestrian team in the traditional Mexican rodeo known as charrería.)

- "One of the main inspirations for this collection is the traditional women riders of Mexico. So I'm really excited that this collection is looking at and celebrating these women's heritage through such a modern lens," Lawrence says in the ad.

- Phoebe Robinson, of the popular podcast "2 Dope Queens", shared Lawrence's ad to Instagram calling it "ignorant and gross."
