Fans are outraged over new photos from a photoshoot for new Jennifer Lawrence movie Red Sparrow.

On Tuesday, the star posed with her male co-stars in London, wearing a black, slinky Versace gown with a plunging neckline and thigh high split. The gorgeous dress wasn't a problem - it was what Lawrence's male colleagues were wearing.

Director Francis Lawrence and co-stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Joel Edgerton and Jeremy Irons joined Lawrence wearing long pants, woollen jumpers and overcoats. Edgerton is actually wearing two.

That's because in London right now it's winter, and the average temperature is around 5degC. Social media users questioned why the men of Red Sparrow were allowed to dress appropriately for the weather, but Lawrence wasn't.

"This is such a quietly depressing (and revealing) image. Not least because I've been outside today and it's bloody FREEZING," New Statesman editor Helen Lewis wrote on Twitter.

"True equality means either Jennifer Lawrence getting a coat, or Jeremy Irons having to pose for a photocall in assless chaps," she added.

"The only rational reason for this picture is that her clothes spontaneously combusted and Liz Hurley happened to be passing on her way to a charity shop" Melissa Cole theorised.

Zelda Williams, daughter of the late comedian Robin, was one of the many others adding to the discussion.
