Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab Couture – ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’ LA Premiere

Anna Kendrick joined her co-stars Brooklyn Decker, Jennifer Lopez and Elizabeth Banks on the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the LA premiere of their latest movie ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’ yesterday evening.

The ‘Twilight’ actress wore an Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture cocktail dress.

She could’ve easily allowed her nude three-quarter-sleeve fully embellished cocktail dress to do all the work, but her accessories were just as fab as her dress.

Anna added a nude Edie Parker ‘Lara’ pearlescent clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Picks & Co’ ankle-strap spiked heels.

I would’ve loved the gold version to her silver heels and I would’ve loved a neat bun, but Anna is back to her best with this gorgeous look.

    Love the dress, but SHE IS SO AWKWARD, in every single picture I’ve seen of her. Looks like she needs a confidence boost / learn how to smile more naturally.

    Feeling a sense of deja vu from her. I swear I’ve seen this dress before on her. Perhaps a different color.

    I love the dress but it gives me a strong feeling of déjà vu. Like Riley said, Elie Saab is my fashion God but he really does repeat himself. I would have liked a bun as well.

    I think “Twilight actress” is a bit dated though. She was in 5min of each 4 movies but she’s been in many critically aclaimed movies since like 50/50 or Up In The Air (for which she was nominated). Just a thought 😉 I love her and I hate seeing “the twilight actress” lol It doesn’t sound like a good thing.

    GORGEOUS dress, but I think she needs to stand up straighter as her posture makes it look a bit frumpy in the photo. I do love the dress, though, and it’s a great look from her. The shoes are to DIE for!
    Hoping to see lots of Elie Saab at Cannes! 😀

    Very nice, she looks pretty. I actually think that the sexy loose waves was a good choice as with the bun she could’ve easily ended up looking like a baby-ballerina. The silver shoes seem to echo the embellishments on the dress (which are in silver as well (??) not really sure.)

    As much as this is slightly deja vu, I’m still dying over it. I feel like we have had a nice look Elie Saab nude beaded dress hiatus, so it’s fine. I adore Anna as an actress, especially in 50/50, but I am more excited for her red carpet style. Her awards season run when she was nommed was one of the best eer imo, so I expect a lot from this promo tour. Her hair, makeup accessories and presence are all so good that this I can excuse the mixed metals.

    Pretty dress and it looks very good on Anna. But this is a Dakota Fanning kind-of-dress. Beige and bland despite the sparkles. Why aren’t these young, beautiful women wearing more bold colors? It’s spring!

    I feel like I have seen this on her before. Elie Saab dresses are starting to look the same.

    • Riley May 15, 2012 at 16:02 #

      Even though Elie Saab is my Fashion God, he does repeat himself A LOT. A LOT.

      This is a nice look. I agree. Ballerina bun was needed. I think she wanted to match her shoes to the silver piping.

    I feel like she has worn this dress a million times before. It looks like her feet are falling out of her shoes as well.

    She looks amazing. I always love Anna in Elie Saab.

  12. Katy May 15, 2012 at 13:51 #

    She looks lovely, but for some reason I think the dress has a greater ‘wow factor’ on the runway

  13. dee May 15, 2012 at 13:49 #

    I am tired of seeing her in these nude sparkly dresses. I think she needs to try something different.

  14. DivaDebbi May 15, 2012 at 13:31 #

    The dress is a K.O.! One of Anna’s best head to toe looks ever.

    Elie Saab can’t make a lady look ugly,It’s a princess like dress,but she looks just OK not outstanding.

    what a beautiful dress

  18. Yeliz May 15, 2012 at 12:31 #

    Normally nude pumps would’ve been the obvious choice for Anna and anyone who would wear this dress. I’m so glad that she wore the Louboutin heels even though I agree that the gold version would’ve been more suitable. The dress was one of my favorites from this collection and it looks gorgeous on her.

    What a beautiful outfit. I don’t care much for the hairstyle, though, and I’m getting kind of tired of the spikes on Louboutins.
