Camilla Belle In Jason Wu – “From Prada to Nada” LA Premiere

Some of us have long grown tired of Camilla Belle appearing on every the red carpet everywhere around the world, but she actually had her own movie to promote last night.

She boldly arrived on the red carpet for the LA Premiere of her new movie, “From Prada to Nada” wearing a Jason Wu Spring 2011 ensemble.

Her black tuxedo was styled like the runway with a nude ruffled bandeau was styled with a Anya Hindmarch clutch and Cartier jewels.

I was really impressed by two things.

Firstly at how toned her abs are and secondly that she would wear such a bold look when she normally plays it so safe.

Frankly she needed to do something to shake things up, because you guys haven’t been impressed with recent looks.

I like everything about this look excluding the hair. I super high tight pony would’ve worked better for me and a clean neckline.

I’m dying to know what you think about this look.

    It doesn’t look right on her. Maybe because she’s short or bustier than the model or too tan but it’s not working for me. I think if she’d styled it like it was done on the runway I might have been interested.
    Great abs tho.

    • Rahel January 19, 2011 at 13:14 #

      I agree. Something isn’t right about this look. The fake tan is also not helping it.

    • molly January 20, 2011 at 01:15 #

      Its her makeup. Her face is so pale and her stomach is so orange….she needs to lay off the tanning bed. She is trying way to hard here. The model makes it look classy but daring. She screams “Porn star at Wimbledon”. Not good. I wish someone who could pull of something so daring like Sophia Bush wore this. And does she eat?

  2. Mahima January 19, 2011 at 13:07 #

    its different, but it kinda looks like she’s just wearing it for attention.
    i like her in pretty dresses better.

    • Mel January 19, 2011 at 13:37 #

      I agree with you, she’s wearing this for attention. She’s got something to promote so she wants people to look at her and know she’s got a career.

      This makes me think on Britney Spears, I have the feeling this is somthing she could have worn ten years ago.

      • Erin Michelle January 20, 2011 at 06:51 #

        Oh, totally. I mean, there’s the whole “Is she stealing Taylor Swift’s sloppy seconds… Again?” thing, so I’m sure that’s the reason she’s wearing this. Although, I admit she does look kind of fierce, I would prefer this in print instead of on the red carpet.

  3. Vidhya January 19, 2011 at 13:08 #

    she is too busty??? fake tanned???
    the only thing i can think is eh gawwwd… there r tons of ways to shake things up.. baring ur midriff is nt the way

    • meenakshi January 19, 2011 at 18:50 #

      i agree…i don’t like the bare midriff on red carpet!! the tan seems a li’l too much ‘cos of the nude bandeau I think!

  4. Ayesha January 19, 2011 at 13:09 #

    i’m not sure at all…but i sure as hell HATE that hair!

  5. Lils January 19, 2011 at 13:10 #

    I don’t like the outfit but I like the makeup and hair

  7. SkirtTheIssue January 19, 2011 at 13:16 #

    I really want to like this, because she is trying something different and taking a risk, but I don’t. I think the key to wearing such a baring, out-there outfit is to work it with a nonchalance like the model is- Camilla’s blown out hair, the necklace, the baked tan, the sexy pose- it’s too much, too try-hard, too Kardashian. I’m quite surprised that she took it down that path- she usually “gets” fashion better? The reason Leighton Meester looked so cool in that suit a few weeks ago- which could have looked really off and costumey like this- was because she wore it with such a “oh, this little thing I threw on” attitude and styling- if Camille has worn her hair back, lost the necklace and posed in a more casual laissez faire manner she would have kill this look too I think

    • Lara January 19, 2011 at 13:52 #

      I understand what you’re saying, but she usually IS spot-on in terms of fashion and style… I think this was a DELIBERATE shake-up, and I think she is entitled. She isn’t a Kardashian, and will never be one, and it doesn’t hurt every now and then to just take it outside of the box you’ve created for yourself

    • LizLemooooon January 19, 2011 at 15:04 #

      I agree with everything except that I don’t think she’s anywhere near to as awkward fashion wise as the Kardashians are. She made a rare misstep, Camilla Belle is usually always on the money.
      Even the tan would have been fine if she’d worn her hair slicked back and lost the necklace.

    • Jones19 January 20, 2011 at 12:05 #

      Completely agree SkirtTheIssue, she’s trying too hard here instead of being nonchalant about the whole thing.

  8. Hermione Weasley January 19, 2011 at 13:18 #

    I don’t like it ;_;

  9. Lee Ann January 19, 2011 at 13:21 #

    I really like the whole look. Yes she is a bit too tanned and yes her hair is nad but to me it works.

    • Lucinda January 20, 2011 at 16:24 #

      I agree – i really like this different look. The bandeau looks a funny colour against the over tanned skin though.
      I think she looks really sharp.
      Love this Jason Wo ensemble and where else could it be worn!

  10. Adina January 19, 2011 at 13:21 #

    She looks different than usual, but I like it….the only compaint I have is about the fake tann…..

  11. Lei January 19, 2011 at 13:21 #

    She looks so different here! She is oozing fierceness!

    I like this look but like you FC I really wish she had not added that necklace!

    Not many people could pull this off so Kudos to her!!

    • Luiza January 19, 2011 at 14:00 #

      Agreed! a bare neckline would have been preferred but I actually like the hair. Camilla seems to really like fashion and therefore she probably likes to experiment. I think it is good that she gave us something unexpected. Specially when you can look good like this!

  12. june January 19, 2011 at 13:21 #

    i didn’t even realise that was camilla! i think she’s done her makeup here differently? she looks like someone else completely.

    i really am not a fan of this look — it looks like a bikini and suit, as if camilla just rocked up from the beach casually.

    i think the nude’s washing her out (well, in the face. her chest is a totally different colour to her face), and her messy hair doesn’t help. if her hair had been slicked back, she’d lost all the extraneous and distracting accessories, and maybe it wasn’t in that shade of nude, i’d like it better. right now, i can’t like any of it — we can’t even see the lovely tailoring on the jacket, which is the part i like

  13. Alexia January 19, 2011 at 13:23 #

    I didn’t recognized her at first. This doesn’t look right on her I don’t know if it’s the tan or the hair, but this not good

    • anna January 19, 2011 at 15:05 #


  14. Marvel January 19, 2011 at 13:24 #

    FC I think your going to know what my feelings are…

    What possessed her to wear such an AWFUL look. The top looks horrendous and it looks even worse on her. While she does have a nice body, the fake tan just ruins an already worse outfit.
    If she wanted to shake things up on the red carpet then she should have just avoided the red carpet for at least a fortnight and people will be surprised you’ve gone.

    Ramble over. I so hope this is the last and only premiere of this dire movie. I would imagine there wouldnt be a press tour for this movie, but that wont stop Camilla

    • pipsqueak January 20, 2011 at 01:56 #

      You had me at “dire movie”! In fact, the whole line “I so hope this is the last and only premiere of this dire movie” is amusing but true. I hope so, too. I don’t like the look. It’s one thing to take risks and another to do it for the sake of it, which would be totally out of one’s “fashion character.”

  15. Alina January 19, 2011 at 13:28 #

    The way I could have liked it :
    -with no necklace and rings
    -with less tan and make-up
    -with a pair of ruby earrings
    -with her hair styled in a retro updo .

  16. gossip_bangkok January 19, 2011 at 13:29 #

    I really don’t like the fake tan, too much. Thought the outfit is interesting, and she deserves to stand out. It is her night.

  17. GirlOne January 19, 2011 at 13:31 #

    That doesn’t even look like her. I don’t know what to say… I like the look on the model as well as the bandeau trend, but it doesn’t translate too well on Camilla.

    P.S. Busty?? Seriously?

  18. frommdq January 19, 2011 at 13:33 #

    Her fake tan is really bugging me. I cant see anything though it.

  19. Jess January 19, 2011 at 13:34 #

    I didn’t recognise her – she’s poised very differently in this outfit. I don’t think the nude on black paired with that super fake-looking tan works.

  20. Irmina January 19, 2011 at 13:35 #

    Well, at first i tried to recognize this celebrity, because she’s got lot of make up.
    This outfit is very bold. I think it doesn’t fit on her

  21. mm January 19, 2011 at 13:38 #

    I love the look. No to the hair and the necklace. For a second i thought she was katie holmes

  22. Carol January 19, 2011 at 13:40 #

    The outfit as a whole isn’t bad but the bronzer she’s wearing looks awful.

  23. Pablo January 19, 2011 at 13:47 #

    Don’t like it at all. I mean, I like the outfit but not on her (hair, necklace… many things not working). It screams try-hard…

  24. lifeisdolce January 19, 2011 at 13:49 #

    camilla belle should stick to pretty dresses and flashing a smile. i didn’t recognize her at all until i actually glanced up to the title of the blog entry – she’s wearing too much fake tan, too much make up and her hair looks like her stylist tried to give her tumbling locks but failed and settled for a little frizz, a little curl. this look might’ve worked on someone else like chloe sevigny or natalia vodianova, but camilla just looks way too brazen.

  25. Lara January 19, 2011 at 13:50 #

    Sorry for cyber-shouting but I FRICKIN’ LOVE THIS! I think she looks sexy as hell, and I love her hair like that because in my view it sort of detracts from the “nudity” effect, and also adds to the “wild child you can’t tame” vibe that she has going on…. I wouldn’t put it as a BDOTW, but it is a HOT look.

    • Gamine January 19, 2011 at 18:53 #

      I agree, she looks amazing and her body is to die for!

  26. Carolina January 19, 2011 at 13:51 #

    Wow. She looks very different, but I like it. I agree that a ponytail was a better choice. She could wear a potato sack and I would still like it cause I love her. She must have spent some time in the gym, great for her.

  27. Alice January 19, 2011 at 13:51 #

    Out of her confort zone. I really liked

  28. elsa January 19, 2011 at 13:52 #

    So wrong on so many levels. What’s she thinking, seriously? And I am uncomfortable with the fact that she feels so comfortable in this outfit on the red carpet. Her fake tan reminds me of that Youtube video which teaches people how to DRAW fake tanned six packs.

  29. Linda January 19, 2011 at 14:01 #

    I agree with FC, this would have been okay with hair pulled back tightly and a clean neckline. ( She does look awfully tanned, though.)

  30. jennifer January 19, 2011 at 14:08 #

    she looks like a younger Salma Hayek here.

  31. Wendy January 19, 2011 at 14:09 #

    I don’t really like it on her. I would like it on some other girl,a little bit taller and with less make up. But it’s nice that she is trying to change something and that she finally gets a chance to promote own movie!

  32. Mario January 19, 2011 at 14:09 #

    Woah, I am actually liking this a lot.
    First of all, she wears that.. top, if I can call it that, way better than Pedaru on the runway. And I am liking this whole sexy-suit-thing, I think it works. It’s definitely unexpected, which I love.

  33. harris January 19, 2011 at 14:11 #

    i do not like this one bit. and i have always loved everything she wears. i think she’s fab. but to me, this totally takes away from everything i loved about her. stylish. and proper almost. yuck- dont like it. and looks like a Jersey Shore tan.

  34. angie January 19, 2011 at 14:12 #

    For me, what feels wrong is the pose, the attitude… whils the model walks in the most relaxed way, she looks like she is defiying the camara, tightening the abs… it doesn´t feel right at all. A different attitude, a simple pony tail and no jewels (at least the necklace) would have given a totally different vibe to the look (for me, the right one).

  35. Marisa January 19, 2011 at 14:23 #

  37. Tania January 19, 2011 at 14:28 #

    Firstly, I want abs like that!
    I like this look on her, it’s so different from what she usually wears but so bang on trend! I would prefer a bare neck but and I don’t mind the hair.

  38. Rawda January 19, 2011 at 14:31 #

    WOW!!!! I never would have expected such a statement from Camilla! That’s definitely got the shock factor. I really like it, she looks fierce though she should have dropped the necklace and went with red lips and a tight updo.

  39. asherlev1 January 19, 2011 at 14:31 #

    I honestly didn’t recognize her at first.

    …It looks better on the model. I mean, I want to like it, but I don’t, not really.

  40. stilettolover91 January 19, 2011 at 14:41 #

    I love it, i think she looks super SEXY!!!

  41. Moxie January 19, 2011 at 14:52 #

    If you hadn’t said this was Camilla Belle, FC, I wouldn’t have recognized her. I agree with some of the others — she looks like Salma Hayek. This is too OOT for me. She could have pulled off the look if she’d styled her hair differently or the hair would have work with a less edgy outfit, but the two just don’t work together.

  42. Nicola January 19, 2011 at 14:54 #

    Oh no! Too much big hair, fake tan and make-up has left her looking slutty when a sleek up-do or ponytail and less of the above would have looked really cool. She definately has the figure for it though!

  43. mol January 19, 2011 at 15:07 #

    Love the outfit, hate the tan and excess jewelry.

  44. D January 19, 2011 at 15:08 #

    bold but not in love, she doesnt have the right attitude me thinks?

  45. Nikki January 19, 2011 at 15:10 #

    Ummm I just noticed that her neck and face are pale compared to her torso. Are those real abs or are they spray painted / makeup? Generally I’m not afan of this look but kudos on trying something different.

  46. JJovana3 January 19, 2011 at 15:22 #

    I hate it. She’s trying to be sophisticated with the suit…then the dead bird on her chest.

    Tan is all wrong too, and the hair should have been slicker…and her face is different. I didnt think that was her.

  47. OZALES January 19, 2011 at 15:25 #


  48. Jess January 19, 2011 at 15:30 #

    The hair and makeup let this down the most for me. It feels as if she got too caught up in the whole showing a bit of skin thing and tried to be too sexy. This would have looked incredible with a slick chignon, and nude lipstick. I’m actually hoping someone else wears this so you can compare them :)

  49. Clancy from Dallas January 19, 2011 at 15:31 #

    I just am having a real Bridget Bardot moment right now.. I think she’s freakin hot, and she’s rockin the hell out of this look.. she doesn’t look like a disney princess for once and she still managed to completely commit to this look.. i dont know if i love it or not but i do know that shes WORKIN!!

  50. Vicky January 19, 2011 at 15:36 #

    No, it’s not working for me.
    Too much fake tan, unnecessary necklace, wrong hairstyle and too much tried-too-hard attitude.
    This would have looked better on someone like Chloe Sevigny.
    Strange, for every other event she’s been to she’s been almost spotless, but when promoting her own work she gets it so wrong..

  51. Ethne Blist January 19, 2011 at 16:11 #

    Like all of you, never in a million years would I have thought she would do this and I HATE it. I totally mirror Marvel’s spot-on adamant annoyance with Camilla Belle. This is attention seeking behavior. Yes- she tried something new. But nonchalance is key. Going full on sexy is a big no-no. Who cares if she has a flat stomach? The only thing I like about the whole look is the gorgeous bandeau. I wish the suit were in a cream or something to complement the rose bandeau. Her makeup is ATROCIOUS. She was never pretty to begin with so this is depressing.

    • Lara January 19, 2011 at 17:38 #

      She was never pretty to begin with? Wow, I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, because I think she is gorgeous naturally (i.e. without much or any make up)

  52. Jinni January 19, 2011 at 16:27 #

    Oooh I love it! She looks good & those abs woowee!….I agree about the hair, but overall it was quick change from her usual and she pulled it off well..

  53. Lila January 19, 2011 at 16:34 #

    I didn’t even recognize Camilla in this get-up! The runway presentation is so classy yet Camilla failed to retain an ounce of class in the styling. It looks cheap and a bit trashy.

  54. Laura January 19, 2011 at 16:40 #

    I would’ve thought I’d like something this bold on Camilla. But this kinda looks like JWoww from the Jersey Shore with everything hanging out and the fake orange tan. Not my fave at all.

  55. CB January 19, 2011 at 16:41 #

    Ug, this just confirms my suspicions that she has both the perfect body and the perfect wardrobe. Not my favorite of her looks, but she wears it well.

  56. Mia January 19, 2011 at 17:32 #

    I didn’t recognize her. I like the outfit. It would have never occurred to me to put on a short tube top with a suit and wear the jacket open. I agree the tan is too much. I would have worn put different accessories with this look. The ring she’s wearing looks fine, but i would have put on a thick gold chain instead of the necklace she’s wearing. I’m curious to see what shoes she’s wearing.

  57. robbie January 19, 2011 at 17:39 #

    this looks like some really bad look from the 80s. how can she ruin a look so easily. but nice to know she has a second career as an “actress” after her first job “red carpet walking”

  58. Giuseppi January 19, 2011 at 17:53 #

    The ruffly bandeau just isn’t working for me. It just looks like she’s trying to hard to be sexy. If she had toned it down a bit, chosen something just slightly less revealing, I think it would have been better. What she’s lacking is the power of understatement.

  59. Kaylie January 19, 2011 at 18:53 #

    Screams “PLEASE LOOK AT ME.”
    Sidenote: I would be embarrassed to wear this to a movie premiere. She needs to do press, walk around chatting and networking at the after party… Maybe she’ll button up the jacket.

  60. Julia January 19, 2011 at 19:00 #

    I adore this look! I´m not sure about the hair, maybe a pony would go better, like u said. But I really like when celebs take risks in order to play it safe. She seems a fashionista here, not a beauty in cute dresses, like she usually does. There´s a celeb who would also look outstanding in this outfit: Leighton Meester. I really can see her wearing this.

  61. mochababe73 January 19, 2011 at 20:03 #

    At first I liked. She looks better than the model in my opinion, and I even like the hair. It’s a little bed head.
    With that being said, I don’t like bare bellies on the red carpet. It’s a little tacky. This would be better at a club’s grand opening.

  62. Sophie January 19, 2011 at 20:23 #

    ouch!. talk about falling from grace. silly girl. she’s taking herself too seriuosly now….just no, on ever level.

  63. Hannah January 19, 2011 at 20:32 #

    IMo she has ruined this look. She may have been promting a film she was actually in, but she veyr well knew that wearing this and looking like thise would ahve diverted all the attention onto her. I hate the almost metallic skin witht he bra top (and th eface her body is such an overtly different colur to her face). The hair, the makeup, the attitude, the expression, the pose. All wrong. So is hte jewellery. Thi slook would ahve been divine on someone tall, who wore this look in the beaufiul sleek manner in which it was presented on the runway. My mind cant help but wonder as to what Li Ai would have looked like in this.

  64. kimi January 19, 2011 at 22:15 #

    I don’t know. Even though the outfit is daring and so. It still bores me some what. Its just a plain suit with a cut off tube top. But if her hair was pulled back and the tan wasn’t overkill, it might have sway my perceptions.

  65. megan January 19, 2011 at 22:41 #

    OMG would have never known that was Camilla Belle!Way too much fake tan and screams attention seeker and not just ‘being different’ like Leighton Meester.Camilla has style and I prefer wearing cute but class dresses.

  66. ashley January 19, 2011 at 23:47 #

    i actually love it?

  67. KateS January 20, 2011 at 00:14 #

    I don’t think the runway translates well to the RC here, and the tan, hair and necklace aren’t helping.
    A small modification would have helped – adding a sheer nude panel below the frilly bandea to create a camisole would have kept the sexiness of the look without it being so effortful and all ‘MY ABS ARE HERE’.
    Once I got around to noticing it, it’s a great looking suit.

  68. Carol January 20, 2011 at 00:16 #

    It’s a good thing to take risks and surprise us… I would prefer her hair pulled back too, and a happier clutch to add femininity, but above all I miss her smile…

  69. Chelsea January 20, 2011 at 00:39 #

    Bravo! She always looks so polished and put together so this look is a great shake up. Agreed that the tan is a bit fake-looking, but I’m a fan of everything else! Wish I had those abs!

  70. mikeijames January 20, 2011 at 06:08 #

    she looks amazing. smoking hot. but i think this look feels more nightclub than red carpet. while i understand she’s trying to mix things up and the movie has a fashion-y patina, this took it too far in the wrong direction. perhaps even buttoned up she might have looked better.

  71. Sue Jin January 20, 2011 at 06:50 #

    I didn’t recognize her! I think she would have looked better without that tan, heavy makeup and hairstyle. She has a nice body and she could have pulled it off if only it weren’t for those things.. but seriously I didn’t know who it was until i read the post.

  72. Emi January 20, 2011 at 08:21 #

    First of all, I love this look, i mean the clothes only. The tuxedo is gorgeous, the ruffled “bra” is beautiful. I really dislike all the rest. A chic bun would have been better, I don’t like the “wild” hair with these clothes and most of all the first thing that catched my eyes is the terrible fake-tan. She’s orange! I also think that that lovely necklace was really unnecessary.

  73. Ben January 21, 2011 at 12:37 #

    She looks hideous…..

  74. Parvati January 21, 2011 at 12:47 #

    I agree with you about wanting a clear neckline, but I disagree about the hair. I like it and I like the entire look. “Fierce” was the only word that came to mind when I saw her photo!

  75. Flaneur January 21, 2011 at 17:51 #

    ok i dont think i can add anything new…but nevertheless

    the tan is horrendous…i am completely puzzled when stars with their bevy of make up artists goof it up so bad…
    too many accessories….

    the fit of the pants is not partcularly flattering..

    n yes the pose…the boldness/wildness should have been conveyed wearing an air of insouciance…

    but i love the ensemble…will dream of strutting into my board meeting wearing this 😉

  76. Amanda January 22, 2011 at 03:47 #

    I think she looks like a cheap hooker wearing very expensive pants. Basically it’s an oxy moron which is probably why she looks like S##T!
    She should have stopped with one martini. Seriously! She has to be drunk. This is so trashy.

  77. kimmy January 24, 2011 at 04:51 #

    Props to her for getting out of her comfort zone, but I don’t think this is her style, even out of that zone.
