Anna Wintour was the party pooper at the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala honouring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick on Saturday evening in LA.

That’s because she opted not to follow the dress code, but this is nothing new.

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue, as always, made her own rules by wearing a Rochas Spring 2013 dress.

I adore this fiery red print, which is more suited to fall than spring, don’t you think?

Anna’s sleeveless dress with a gathered detail on the waist was perfectly in tune with her signature style, but I adore the strapless runway version and hope to see it on a red carpet too.

Deciding not to change a habit of a lifetime, she wore her favourite Manolo Blahnik kitten heels and her beaded neckline.

The only thing surprising here is the addition of a clutch, as she has a worse phobia of clutches than Jessica Chastain.
