You may not have heard of Alicia Vikander, a relative newcomer on the scene. The young Swedish actress attended the 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala, hosted last night at 2nd Street Tunnel in Los Angeles, California.
Unfortunately, she still has a few things to learn about dressing for the red carpet. Her Chanel gown from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection left something to be desired.
The intricate nod to India and the lustrous Paris-Bombay vibe of the Chanel runway didn’t translate once removed from that magical stage.
The champagne colour and metallic embellishment at the shoulder and waist lost its charm and didn’t feel new or fresh—and certainly not heavenly. And the sash detail tucked into the skirt pockets came off as a strange afterthought.
Perhaps I would have liked this look better if Alicia had added some intensity with a smoky eye or had done something more exciting than pull her hair into a messy ponytail.
