Ellie Kemper In Armani Privé – 2012 Oscars

Ellie Kemper gave new meaning to the term ‘bronzed goddess’ at the 2012 Oscars held in Hollywood this evening.

The ‘Bridesmaids’ actress matched her dress to her gorgeous copper hair, wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2010 gown.

Her red hued evening gown was encrusted in scarlet, yellow and orange square pailletes, creating the illusion of an abstract flaming fire.

Her strapless gown is fitted into a strong yet slender silhouette.

I just love this stunning unique dress, but am not sold on such blunt bangs. If they had been just parted to the side, this would be completely amazing.

A Salvatore Ferragamo gold Swarovski encrusted minaudiere completed the look.

    One word – Gorgeous!

    It looks flat on her. Maybe it’s because of the picture, but the details looked nicer and sharper on the model.

    At least it matches her hair.

    The bangs are too heavy and look like they need a trim but WOWZA that dress is gorgeous!

    Amazing dress but I do not like her hair….

    The dress looks amazing, but that hair makes this look like a costume.

    Wow, this firey dress is a very cool, interesting piece. Unfortunately Ellie’s bangs overshadow the look–they really bring it down for me.

    I’m going to give the hair a pass because this is the best bronze dress I’ve ever seen.

      Ditto. Gorgeous dress on a girl who’s totally working it.

    I love her hair color with this dress! Im not liking the hair style though.

  10. Fanny February 27, 2012 at 00:29 #

    Wow this is unique and beautiful.

  11. Hannah February 27, 2012 at 00:29 #

    She looks great, this is such an unusual colour choice, imo, because with her hair I never would ahve guessed that she would have chsen a matching dress, but I wish that she had been a little more smouldering, as the dress was on the runway.

    Aishwarya Rai wore a similar Armani Prive dress to the 2011 oscars. She should’ve worn a gown from the recent collection. But still gorgeous!

    sexy and fierce on the model but an absolute let down on ellie. the hair looks bad, not as bad as rooney mara though.

    lol I’ve noticed that a lot of you guys don’t like blunt bangs (see Rose Byrne old posts) but I’m a sucker for them.
    I think this is a stunning look. My only complaint would be the bracelet, it’s kind of overkill.

  15. CreoleLady February 27, 2012 at 01:14 #

    Incredible dress, shame about those bangs…

  16. Mol February 27, 2012 at 01:25 #

    Perfect critique FC, agree totally, nothing to add.

  17. bm February 27, 2012 at 03:32 #

    The bangs, so heavy for such a great dress. Also, love the clutch.

    i love the dress on ellie and her clutch but the hair is just too much, i don’t like it at all

  20. Carolina Roq February 27, 2012 at 14:15 #

    I dislike the matching hair-dress

  21. Lucía February 27, 2012 at 15:33 #

    I hate how the dress matches the dress…even if it’s a gorgeous one.

  22. Camille February 27, 2012 at 15:38 #

    the dress is gorgeous but her blunt heavy bangs ruin the look for me. How could she see? They were like sheepdog bangs almost covering her eyes.

  23. Deena February 27, 2012 at 18:38 #

    I love this dress! Its one of my favourites from the night and I think she looks gorgeous.

    Ellie actually said “amination” instead of animation when presenting last night. I’m pretty sure.
