Jennifer LawrenceBoulevard reviews the latest media coverage of the Oscar-winning Louisville native in our exclusive Jennifer Lawrence Diary™. Today’s news, rated on a scale of 1-5 stars:

Four starsWe can’t think of a better introduction to Lawrence’s guest appearance at a wedding last weekend in Tuscany’s luxe Borgo Stomennano Hotel than today’s Pop Sugar:

“Being friends with a celebrity can’t exactly be easy, especially when it’s your very own wedding day. Because despite the fact that you’re the one saying ‘I do,’ your famous pal will likely steal some of that spotlight — unless, of course, you’re Laura Simpson, aka Jennifer Lawrence’s BFF.”

Of all those, Vanity Fair’s Josh Duboff (love that name!) provided our favorite coverage because of his magnifico color commentary; take it away, Josh:

Vanity Fair Jennifer Lawrence cover
The October 2014 issue.

“Simpson was married this weekend, in what People is calling an ‘intimate’ celebration, in Tuscany, Italy. According to the outlet, the wedding was attended by just 25 guests, one of whom was Lawrence. The movie star wore a ‘lilac slip dress,’ and, semi-confusingly, People explains that she ‘was spotted spending time at the event with Los Angeles bartender Kevin “Boosh” Burtch.’ Who is this bartender? How did he end up at the wedding of Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend? Why does he have a nickname that is weirdly similar to his last name??!! So many questions about this wedding, and we’re only one bartender in.”

For that alone, Boulevard gives Vanity Fair four out of five stars. Gracie mille!
