Ellie Kemper In Reem Acra – 2013 SAG Awards

Ellie Kemper In Reem Acra - 2013 SAG Awards

Ellie Kemper attended the 2013 SAG Awards tonight, held at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

‘The Office’ star stood out in her delightfully hued sea-foam green gown from Reem Acra’s Resort 2013 collection.

Featuring an illusion neckline dotted with dainty embellishment that swirled its way to the hem of the dress, the design held a subtle sparkle. More shine came courtesy of Neil Lane jewels.

A sash with an architectural mock bow edged up the princess-y power of this look and kept it from venturing too sweet. But I have a feeling this dress looked better in person than it photographed, as some of the engaging detail was lost.

The pastel color was nice with Ellie’s flame-red hair, which was swept back into an updo and accessorized with a jewelled hair pin.

It’s a shame about that unsightly zipper at the back.

    Nice dress but it looks so much like Maid of Honor/bridesmaid kind of dress.

  2. Moxie January 28, 2013 at 01:22 #

    The color is pretty, but a little bridesmaid-y. Nice to see some color amidst the sea of black gowns on the red carpet.

    Sorry to say that there’s nothing I like here. I find the color awful and cheap-looking on Ellie, and the hair is so unflattering. Too bad.

    It´s quite lovely minus the very non-elegant hairdo although it does have a bridesmaidy feel to it.

    I really, really don’t like this dress. It screams cheap bridesmaid. (I do like the colour though)

  6. Marybeth January 28, 2013 at 01:31 #

    She looks a bit washed out.
    And I can’t help but agree that there’s a bridesmaidy feel to this — although the hair is more mother-of-the-bride matronly.

    It’s just okay.

      I couldn´t decide what to write – bridesmaid or mother of the bride, I guess it´s both :) Not the best look or styling for her.

    Oh no! Matronly hair, dress sagging too low–it’s not working out, even though the seafoam shade is divine and the gown is lovely on the model. It’s almost working, but not quite because of a few bad details.

    I love this, the color is very unexpected.

  9. Christine January 28, 2013 at 01:36 #

    It looks lost on her. Also a bit washing her out.

    Horrible color but nice dress.

  11. Yeliz January 28, 2013 at 06:23 #

    I love the gown on the model, but Ellie can’t quite pull it off. The hairstyle is terrible.

    I absolutely love both of the dresses in the lookbook picture. The dress looks beautiful on Ellie and I love her earrings and clutch, but the hair is so wrong! It is far too matronly.
    I could not believe my eyes when I saw a picture of Ellie from the back. The visible zip at the back is such a let down :(

    This looks to bridsmaids like. The other gown in the lookbook probably would have been better on her. Hair, makeup and accesories are on point.

    As a seamstress, I am offended by that zipper. What were they thinking?! It looks horrid. A side zipper under the arm would have been a much wiser choice.

    I love the colour and frankly I was dying to see more of that collection on the red carpet. But Ellie Kemper definitely doesn’t look as good as she could. The hair is top awful and I really dislike the makeup and accessories. With a proper styling she could’ve been one of the best dressed of the night.

    I can’t believe how a gown with such a delicate illusion panel could have such an ugly zipper at the back. The gown itself is nice (except for the zipper) but I’m not crazy about the whole look in general.

  17. lu January 29, 2013 at 00:54 #

    I really like the dress and don’t see the bridesmaid conection, she looks great!. I only dislike the zipper, it ruins the back. And we’ve seen illusion panels on the back without the zipper.
