Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab – 36th Kennedy Center Honors Gala

Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab - 36th Kennedy Center Honors Gala

Anna Kendrick attended the 36th Kennedy Center Honors Gala held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. on Sunday evening.

The actress turned to one of her favourite designers Elie Saab, who created this gorgeous sleeveless gown with sheer lace panels to give the look a flirty flourish, with a nude underlay ensuring no underwear reveals.

She styled her Pre-Fall 2013 look with a brown Rauwolf clutch, which I don’t think complements her dress on this occasion. The blocks of colour feel weighty against her gown.

Working a half-up, half-down style of bouncy cascading curls, she complemented her gown with a glossy tangerine lip.

    First thought: soo much better than Nina’s Elie Saab.
    Overall, I love the colour of the gown, the hair and make-up but I can’t say I love the gown itself and the clutch. The lace parts on the skirt not joining with the parts on the top bothers me but I really adore the colour on Anna. Conflicted.

      +1. It’s a minor change, but I feel like the lace matching up would have changed my entire feel for the look. As is, I only like her hair and the color of the gown.

        I completely agree. So surprised that this detail was overlooked. But the color on her is heaven! And her hair and makeup-lipcolor especially-are perfection. This has to be one of my favorite looks of hers-by far. I am usually NOT a fan of her style. So, kudos!

    I don’t have a problem with the clutch, I think this is a gorgeous look. Her hair looks beautiful.

    I agree about the clutch. The rest is nice.
