Alice Eve In Donna Karan – ‘The Raven’ LA Premiere

The LA premiere for ‘The Raven’ took place at the Los Angeles Theatre last night with Alice Eve front and centre.

Our English Rose became a sexy siren wearing a Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2012 look.

The one-shoulder belt dress with a twist gives her plenty of va va voom. I didn’t know she had this in her, but I love it and by the way she’s working it, it’s clear she does too.

I love the retro hairdo and the gold accessories, but the pop of colour via the red lip colour and her electric-blue peep-toes and earrings blow me away.

Her dress is outstanding and the styling is impeccable. This is most definitely a BDOTW contender for me.

    I’m not sure who she is but she look great! Awesome dress and great styling

    I am not a fan of this look. Even though her hair and makeup is flawless, I still think the version on the model is better,
    cuz the neckline and right shoulder is showing…
    and her bust, it feels like its squeezing out from the dress…

    On the first look I was wowed but on closer inspection I would have gone tonal with the shoes. Sounds boring but she is a striking woman and her body is killer, I would have kept all the attention on her face and body. The lipstick and great earrings add more than enough interest.

    This look really annoys me. What could have been so striking and amazing look confused, cluttered, rushed, and ill fitting. The band up top should have been turned down to show shoulder, the shoes are completely wrong and insanely too large, the dress looks too big for her, the belt she is wearing is actually distracting……. but I will give her A+ on clutch, flawless makeup, and great hair. The clothes I’m sorry just don’t work for me. Would have preferred to see her as she’s been seen in recent photo shoots, this is lackluster!

    BDOTW contender…. I love everything about this look…. even that pop of blue….

    Two things ruin it for me: 1)it’s too long; and 2) the neckline looks like its strangling her.

    FIERCE is the word to describe her in this dress.

    I don’t know… while she does look good, after seeing the version on the model, I wish she could have made the shoulder thing lower to cover more of her skin – now it looks like it’s choking her a bit. Not BDOTW for me.

    Wow, she is a splitting image of Rachael Taylor (Charlies Angels).

    Love it until i looked at more photos and saw a close up of the shoes. its like a young girl trying on her mums shoes! I’m sick of seeing shoes 2 sizes too big on the RC!!!

    After Claire, Scarlett and Olivia this week, seeing a head of healthy shiny beautifully sryled blonde waves is a revelation.

    Hot, hot.
    I love the styling, and the blue shoes, but I can understand those who feel the shoes strike the wrong tone. Perhaps metallic would have been (even) better?

    But she looks wonderful.

    LOVE. She is a better version of January Jones.

    I am happy the Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2012 collection is getting a lot of Celeb Love because it is very much a film screening and protocol collection.

    • Fee April 26, 2012 at 13:54 #

      +1 on January Jones – I had take several looks at this post before I was convinced it wasn’t her!

  14. rebecca April 24, 2012 at 18:50 #

    the bust doesn’t sit right. styling is gorgeous.

  15. Yeliz April 24, 2012 at 18:15 #

    Definitely a contender. Love everything about this look.

  16. Aline April 24, 2012 at 17:51 #

    For me too! This is such a perfect look to promote a movie about The Raven. I’m in love.

  17. Jones19 April 24, 2012 at 17:46 #

    She’s English? Didn’t know that. Anyway she looks very sexy here, love the va-va voom going on. The pops of color are welcome. BDOTW.

    Her clutch is the judith Leiber ‘grand duchess’ bag.

    hot as hell!

    Not working for me. Don’t think the pop of colour via the blue shoes (esp. peep-toes that are a size too big) was necessary here at all, they do nothing but distract, simple black sandals would’ve worked just fine, the standout hair and gold accessories are sufficient. The fit in the bust/neck area is awkward, the length could’ve been just a tad shorter, don’t like this much.

    • dee April 24, 2012 at 19:33 #

      I agree with you. This looks so much better on the model.

    Gorgeous until I got to the shoes. They make the whole look much less serious and sultry in my opinion. A red strappy sandal might have worked, but these blue shoes make me think of Katie Perry. A serious swing and a miss.

  23. Kiran April 24, 2012 at 17:00 #

    The second I saw this pic all I had was “who’s that girl” in my head. Love the pop of blue.

  24. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) April 24, 2012 at 16:56 #

    I quite love this, but prefer how the bust and neckline area sits on the model.

    • EmmaWoodhouse April 24, 2012 at 17:46 #

      +1 and I wish she had kept the belt! Then it would have been perfect. Love the shoes.

  25. Sally April 24, 2012 at 16:53 #

    It’s lovely but the fit around the bust doesn’t quite seem right to me.

  26. Lara April 24, 2012 at 16:52 #

    Totally agree. It. Just. All. WORKS.
