Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 2013 Elle Style AwardsCheck mate! Alicia Vikander literally didn’t venture outside the box at Monday evening’s 2013 Elle Style Awards at the Savoy Hotel in London.

The Swedish actress wasn’t about to be left out of the checquerboard game that was Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2013 runway.

She was hip to be square, showing off her legs (and a lot more, too) in her abbreviated frock from the incredibly popular collection. It wasn’t quite as see-through as the dress on the model, thanks to some strategically placed underlining.

The geometry continued with her boxy, Smythson ‘Floating Envelope’ clutch, and I loved that she borrowed inspiration from the yellow runway with her pointy Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps.

Radiant makeup and pretty curls completed this look from one of our Ones to Watch in 2013.

We’ve seen the checquered trend played out so many times before on the red carpet, so now I say what’s another time.

Did this Editor’s Choice award winner win your vote with her sheer love of LV?

    One can’t see anything too revealing in the close-ups so the lining combined with the fun but chic styling and her grace made this a hit.

    LOVE IT! i am truly in shock that a look from this collection actually looks great.

    Pretty girl–cute look.

    I have also moved from fed up to the opinion that one more is not going to hurt with regards to this collection. This is probably one of my more favoured looks from Alicia, her styling was fantastic.

    While I’m tired of the checker look already, i will say that she makes it work better than almost everyone else ive seen in this collection. She seems genuinely stylish.

    Now this is interesting: Alicia so far hadn’t quite wowed me, nor had any of the many checkered LV looks… but this combination… WOW!

    You know…i quite like this girl. What sets this checquered look apart is her impeccable styling. i don’t mind the sheerness of the fabric at all as it doesn’t seem to be getting in the way. the accessories keep me interested on the other hand. i sighed in relief when i saw the yellow pumps. very nice!

      I agree. I don’t even mind the sheerness, even though it would usually be too much on a dress this short. I love the shoe choice.

    This girl is special..totally deserves your ‘one to watch’ FC, I think she’ll go a long way.

    I like the shoes but the sheer checkered dress gets a firm thumbs down from me. I like the rest of her styling though.

  10. MissAmynae February 12, 2013 at 02:49 #

    The styling makes this work for me. She kept her hair soft, which offsets the sharp lines of everything else, and I am coveting those shoes.

    I’m sick of this collection, but this is a refreshing surprise.

    • Christine February 12, 2013 at 04:08 #

      I see this newcomer is stepping up her game. Although I am tire of this same checkered look, she wins points here.

    • TL February 12, 2013 at 08:14 #

      Totally. The styling makes it great.

    • dee February 12, 2013 at 13:23 #

      I agree.

    Her legs look sensational!

    • CreoleLady February 12, 2013 at 02:43 #

      Tru dat. Nice to see shapely legs instead of toothpicks.

    • Andrea February 12, 2013 at 12:54 #

      Yes, nice legs Alicia!

    I love absolutely everything about this look except the sheerness. Was the short length not enough? Sigh. But all of her styling is really fabulous in my book. Great pops of color in the earrings and shoes. Wonderful hair and makeup. Nice clutch.

    • Yeliz February 12, 2013 at 05:30 #

      Completely agree, I love everything except the sheerness.
