Anna Kendrick In Monique Lhuillier - 2014 Directors Guild Of America Awards

Anna Kendrick added a pop of colour to the red carpet of the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday evening (January 25) held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, California.

Opting to wear a bright turquoise Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 dress for the evening, Anna further cemented blue as the stand-out colour of this awards season.

She clearly has the figure and confidence for more dresses, but this to me still falls a little flat.

The necklace is too classic and understated so a pair of statement drop earring would have been much more fitting. And although I like the bow detail of Anna’s Christina Louboutin shoe boots, I really think that a pair of strappy sandals would have been a much stronger and striking choice.

These just a little too heavy for such a flirty dress, do you agree?
