In New York City last night, Anna Kendrick arrived at the Time 100 Gala which honors the “100 Most Influential People in the World.”

She opted for a Z Spoke by Zac Posen Fall 2011 LBD.

The sexy black Z Spoke cocktail dress with a plunging neckline was paired with black pumps and Cartier jewels.

Despite the jewels I’m not getting any sparkle from this look.

The dress is gorgeous, but like her Twilight co-star Ashley Greene yesterday, Anna breathes no life into this look.

A pop of colour is desperately needed via a clutch, her shoes or a rich lip colour would have lifted this look.

I have struggled to love Anna Kendrick’s red carpet looks since her fabulous Zac Posen dress at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards which was nearly a year ago.
