Marcus King is an aspiring fashion designer from Rancho Cucamonga, California, and he posted a video this week to YouTube to make a pitch to Jennifer Lawrence. King wants to design the Oscar nominee’s dress for this year’s ceremony. Watch his pitch after the break.
Obviously, this is a long shot considering King is basically a nobody, and a female nominee’s Oscar dress is probably the most important dress they’ll ever wear. King is going social with the “Jennifer Lawrence, Please Wear My Dress To The Oscars Crusade”, setting up accounts on Facebook, Tumblr, Instragram, and Twitter to help spread the word. His feeds are full of pictures of supporters holding up the notebook with the crusade’s stylized title. I definitely give him props for boldness, and I hope Lawrence gets wind of this and at least replies.
