Elizabeth Banks In Peter Pilotto – ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’ New York Premiere

As you know, Elizabeth Banks has been my favourite on the red carpet this year so far, but I wasn’t crazy about the dress she wore to last night’s New York premiere for her latest movie, ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’.

Her Peter Pilotto Fall 2012 beaded floral-print dress, with cut-outs on the bodice, is stunning on the runway, but I’m not feeling it on Elizabeth.

I think it has something to do with the styling. Maybe it would’ve worked better for me if she had stripped back the glamour and worked a simpler look.

A black clutch and Walter Steiger black peep-toes completed the look.

  • TeaAtTwo

    She really is one of my favourites to watch.

  • Mackentiff

    I love this! I think she looks amazing, much better than Met gala

  • Linda

    I like this a lot. It’s a risk, as her Met Gala dress was, and this one works a lot better, IMO.

  • bm

    She’s so brave to picked this dress, but i have to agree with FC.

  • Dhppy

    I actually love this. I actually like the cut-outs (which is rare for me), I like the fit on her figure more than on the model. Like others, I dislike the shoes, but the dress is kind of fabulous.

  • Riley

    Smaller clutch and strappy sandals. I hate those Steiger shoes. Ugly and clunky. They ruined her Marc Jacobs dress.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    Were it not for the slits, cutouts and sheers I would like this. It’s just too revealing in odd places for me.

  • Grace Patricia

    Different shoes and it would be a 10 for me.

  • robbie

    oh god its the pump version of those “alien” looknig boots victoria beckham had, who could honestly think they are nice to look at. the make-up is pretty over done, clearly the same make-up artist a certain miss aguilera. dress is DIVINE though.

  • noo

    i love this look, it’s true the styling is a bit dita von teese but that isn’t a bad thing 😀

  • Sally

    I for one quite like this look. In fact I think it’s one of her better looks so far this year, excluding the two lovely Hunger Games gowns, because those will be hard to beat.

  • allieh

    Oh I actually LOVE this on her!! I think the prob the retro hair and the lip. It’s so sexy on her, it needed the slicked back hair or even hair down and tousled.

  • Fiona

    I think she wears too much makeup sometimes and it detracts from a beautiful dress. I love her brave choices but she needs to dial down the shine and be a little more European in her approach if this makes sense ….

    • Mol

      Your comment makes sense to me, I have often felt the same thing about Elizabeth, she needs a new approach to her makeup….

  • Rebecca Z

    I really like this–I don’t even mind the shoes. I am surprised it doesn’t work for you, FC.

  • d


    • tiffany nicole

      +1. It’s interesting, she has been far from my favorite on the red carpet, until now. This is awesome.

  • Cheryl Wong

    Should’ve pulled her hair back and worn a bright red shoe to match that red detailing. Since the dress is mostly a light colour the black heels way the look down.

  • fromchi-town

    Apart from her shoe choice – I think she is totally working the look. I really like it on her, better shoes would have made this a 10.

    • Yeliz


  • firien

    I’m totally feeling it on her. Boring shoe choice, though.

  • Nat

    I hate those shoes, and I’m not too sure about the dress either, but I think she is working it.
    I love how her lipstick compliments the details on the dress.

  • Kin

    I disagree. She’s glowing and totally working that dress

  • Pablo

    I think she looks absolutely stunning. It’s a complicated dress to pull off and I think she does it with impeccable elegance. I’m totally in love with Effie (I mean, Elizabeth Banks) this season 🙂

    • Caro

      I agree with Pablo, and, for once disagree with FC: She looks elegant, beautiful and graceful –I am even liking the shoes.

  • AW

    Not working for me either, the shoes are horrible and the styling is aging.

    This particular pic looks like she’s on her way to a case of the Jolie-leg.

  • LeeAnn

    I prefer this to the one she wore at the Met Ball but I do wish she wore the shoes on the model. The black ones kill it

  • Alina

    I’m sad – the second look I don’t like from her.

  • Jacqu

    I don’t know FC, I kind of love this on her. What would’ve made it better for me was a different shoe choice

    • dee

      I agree. The shoes could have been better but I love this on her too. I hated her Met Gala look.

    • Carolyn

      Yeah, I’m liking this one on her too! But it could be because I’m personally obsessed with this line…and another shoe choice would have really made this outfit sing!

    • Jess2

      I also agree! A different shoe would have been good but I do like this dress on Elizabeth
