Elizabeth Banks In Chadwick Bell – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Elizabeth Banks attended the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar party hosted by Graydon Carter at Sunset Tower in California last night.

I wanted to see some dramatic gowns on Oscar night, so Elizabeth gave it to me wearing this Chadwick Bell Fall 2012 dress.

Her green, navy polka-dotted long-sleeve gown with a navy feathered skirt and velvet waistband was the most interesting look of the night.

As always, the more interesting looks are saved for the after-parties, as actress are too scared to make bold choices at the main event for fear of ending up on the worst dressed list.

Elizabeth teamed her dress with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch and Bulgari jewels.

This was Chadwick Bell’s first major red carpet moment, and Elizabeth did well by him.

    Well, it is interesting for sure. I may have liked it had it been strapless, but with the long sleeves and that neckline, I don’t like it.

    I’m in love. I’m not sure how she wears this look so well but I’m glad she does.

    easily the most interesting dress of the night. I mean polka dots, green, feathers when you put all that in a sentence you can expect a major disaster but here She works it. Nice look

    Wow, what a stunning dress, she looks great! I think this one is best dressed of the night.

    i am on the fence about the dress but not the neckline & hair !

  10. Rebecca Z February 27, 2012 at 16:38 #

    I love it, except for the neckline. Makes her shoulders look big and heavy. Maybe it would have been softened with her hair down in loose waves.

    This dress just looks so much fun. At first glance, people might dismiss this as ugly, but it’s bold. I like a little risk in my dresses.

    feeling a bit let down, it looks good on the model but elizabeth doesnt seem to do it justice.

  13. rita February 27, 2012 at 15:56 #

    Oh my god I love this dress so badly. It’s so interesting and I love the colors. I do have to say I would have wanted to see this dress with someone who has darker hair

  14. Pati February 27, 2012 at 15:53 #

    She was my best dressed of the entire night. It´s bold, it´s youthful, it´s unexpected. I absolutely love it!

  15. Jones19 February 27, 2012 at 15:04 #

    Wow this is a gown to draw attention. I wish she would have worn this on the red carpet. Stunning.

  16. Hannah February 27, 2012 at 14:53 #

    Sweaty peacock…

  17. Erik February 27, 2012 at 14:29 #

    Amazing! Best dressed of this event without a doubt

  18. Aline February 27, 2012 at 14:29 #

    I think it’s… interesting. I don’t exactly like it, but I approve of her taking the risk. Plus, she wears it better than the model.

  19. Colleen February 27, 2012 at 14:21 #

    Different and certainly memorable. I love it and she looks beautiful.

  20. bm February 27, 2012 at 14:20 #

    No, it is too confusing for my taste. The polka-dot and feather? Gosh…

    • EmmaWoodhouse February 27, 2012 at 14:33 #

      +1 I know, it’s like a crazy-aunt dress! I don’t really like the colors together.

  21. dee February 27, 2012 at 14:17 #

    I really like this. She looks great. Glad to see someone wearing something interesting.

  22. mandy February 27, 2012 at 14:12 #

    Thank god for the departure of her Versace phase (for now). This gown on her is stunning. I never really remembered her red carpet moments but this, I will remember for a very long time.

  23. Linda February 27, 2012 at 14:07 #

    Way to go, Elizabeth. This truly is the most interesting look of the night and for that I give her props. I love it. It’s memorable.

    • Fashion Critic February 27, 2012 at 14:08 #

      Yes, very memorable.

  24. AW February 27, 2012 at 14:05 #

    I like this, it’s different and interest and still beautiful.
