Runway To 2010 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party – Elizabeth Banks In Atelier Versace

From Classy To Short & Sassy Award
Elizabeth Banks was one of the many presenters at the 2010 Oscars last night.

Her grey Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown was simple around the bust, but had dramatic ruffles cascading down the skirt which I really loved.

She wore Fred Leighton jewels, a matching grey clutch and grey suede cage front Sergio Rossi heels which were embellished with crystals.

At the Vanity Fair Party she opted for another Atelier Versace Spring 2009 show-stopper.

The hem line was shorter, but the look was still very dramatic with the fold details in the skirt and that structured bodice.

Of the two looks I much preferred the first one.

    Like the grey gown, beautiful cascading ruffles

    the bodice of the first dress looked great on her, but I think the ruffles on the skirt fell a little flat, they looked better on the runway version. besides, I don’t really think it was a great colour for her, so I don’t think this is a great look at all.

    finally someone who manages to make these dresses look classy rather than trashy. love the first dress the most it looks gorgeous on her.

    First dress, boring, washes her out.
    Second dress, good.

    Great dresses but the grey wins for me – Elizabeth looks gorgeous in it! Always great to read everyone’s comments too

    I’m surprised Elizabeth wasn’t nominated for the BD list. I thought she looked amazing! In some photos and under certain lights on screen, her dress turned into this beautiful blue-grey colour that looked so stunning! I thought the ruffles also struck the right balance between drama and whimsical.

    Gorgeous…isn’t she?
    Hey FC is this the same dress that Eva Longoria wore in the Desperate Housewives promotional in season 6.
