Elizabeth Banks In Dolce & Gabbana - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Elizabeth Banks made a welcome return to the red carpet for Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon where she was honoured for her work on behalf of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement.

We haven’t seen much of the actress on the red carpet this summer, so we can forgive her for jumping on the crop trend a little late.

She looked divine wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 red-hot two-piece which both featured lace embroideries.

Nude Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, a ring and bracelet from Jennifer Meyer and gold Irene Neuwirth earrings accessorized her look.

Her blonde tresses were teased into a bouffant updo with a complementary red lip colour to match her ensemble provided the finishing touches.
