Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret - 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

I was very disappointed by Elizabeth Banks, who took to the red carpet on Saturday for the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington D.C.

It has a lot to do with the colour of her Roland Mouret ‘Lynon’ gown plus the styling was pretty lackluster.

I don’t like that she opted for this rust-coloured gown, which is so close to her hair colour.

This gown would’ve been better in any other colour. In some of the pictures she also looks washed out.

The halter gown with an open back and black ribbon detailing was styled with black Brian Atwood ‘Hamper’ pumps, a black Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch, Irene Neuwirth earrings and a simple updo.

Does this look work for you?

    It doesn’t work for me either. The gown doesn’t have a beautiful colour and I agree, she looks washed out. Actually, I don’t really like this look from the front, the back of the gown was more interesting.

    Me, I love it! I like everything about it. She looks so very elegant and comfortable. And I actually love this color on her. One of my preferred of the night.

    The color of the dress is awful and especially on her, considering her hair color !

    Russet tones can be worn successfully by redheads and strawberry blondes. I like the colour. The dress is soft and pretty and I like it from the waist down. The bodice and the neckline are not so successful. It does not fit well at the bust.

    I also feel disappointed. Elizabeth can do so much better. I’m struggling to find anything I DO like about the look. Not a fan of the colour, fabric or design. The hair style and colour are also lackluster.

    I really love the shape of this dress. I don’t mind the colour but I don’t really like the colour of her hair either. We know she can do better.

    “Disappointing” doesn’t cover it.

    Hate the colour on her, something dove grey would have worked on her! Dislike the neckline + something more tailoring at the bottom would be better.

    I agree the dress’ colour is not the best for her, but her hair and make up are perfection.

    There are some problems with the look, but somehow I find it appealing. It fits perfectly (thoug hit is a bit rumpled) and the color…I don’t know, it just works for me. I lik her hair, too.

    I hate the color, the styling, the fit. I hate everything on this.

    Not her finest moment.

  13. Cass April 29, 2013 at 15:09 #

    It’s not her best look but her face/makeup is gorgeous.

    I like the dress including the color on her. My disappointment is with her hair. She looks hot, rushed and uncomfortable. I think this would have looked better with her hair down.

    VERY disappointing, I don’t like anything about this – lackluster and uninspiring.

  16. Amy April 29, 2013 at 22:53 #

    I kinda like this. I think the color is pretty and goes well with her skin.

    Elizabeth Banks is usually such a fashion plate. That’s why assume this was all last minute and that she just had to work on the fly.
