Anna Kendrick In Rasario – Hilton & American Express Launch Event

Anna Kendrick shone bright at the Hilton & American Express launch event on Tuesday (January 30) in New York City.

The ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ actress was clad in a Rasario Pre-Fall 2017 look which juxtaposed rich black velvet sleeves and a bow detail with a shimmering strapless dress.

The combination offers a striking finish that is sensual yet sweet.

Without the contrasting fabric, it would have been just another sparkly dress.

She sought to heighten the textural play with a holographic mini bag, but it detracted slightly from the opulence of the piece. More successful were her black heels.

Get The Look: Anna Kendrick’s Grammys Glam

Celebrity Makeup Artist Lisa Aharon provided the glam for one of Hollywood’s sweethearts and favorite funny girls, Anna Kendrick, on the night of the 2018 Grammy Awards where the ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ star and show presenter hit the red carpet trading in the traditional gown for a men’s-style Balmain suit.

Lisa shares how to get Anna’s look.

“To start off Anna’s skin prep, I used Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Lotion, for deeply moisturized and healthy looking skin. It has a beautiful, subtle scent and melts into the skin without being greasy. For longevity and a perfect canvas, I used Tom Ford’s Foundation Primer mixed with Traceless Foundation. I like to buff the foundation into the skin with their Creme Foundation Brush, until it seemingly disappears and becomes one with the skin.

Brows are always next— our eyebrows act as a frame to the face so I like to groom them before shadow or anything else to see where I’m at. On Anna, I used Chantecaille Waterproof Brow Definer in Oak Brown and finished them with Glossier Boy Brow in Brown. It’s my new favorite combo for a defined full brow that still looks super natural.

My inspiration for Anna’s eyes came from her outfit. 90’s Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista kept coming to mind. I used a matte taupe in Tom Ford’s Cocoa Mirage palette to create to shape and some depth in the crease and around the lash line. To make it more modern, I then blended a silver metallic shadow in 005 from Pat McGrath Labs over top. A Tarte gel liner with an angled brush was what I used to fill in the lash line on the top lid only.

Since the eyes were really the feature of Anna’s make up, I kept it strong with a couple coats of Chantecaille black mascara under Eylure Luxe Silk ‘Radiant’ Lashes, the texture is super natural and they add drama without the weight. I trimmed the lashes to fit the length of the eye and then positioned them with a fine line of adhesive. I like to let the glue dry for about 30 seconds before attempting placement as they stick with ease and don’t slide around.

Anna’s got amazing bone structure so I don’t tend to do much contouring. I do love a rosy blush on her though! I dusted Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Euphoric Vision onto the apples of the cheeks to achieve a healthy glow.

I used Charlotte Tilbury’s, Nude Kate with Hourglass’s Dusty Rose Lipliner in Eden. I love that neither are not too warm or cool and just look amazing with Anna’s skin tone. Setting the final look was done with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and finishing with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light.

Anna Kendrick In Balmain & La Perla – 2018 Grammy Awards

Anna Kendrick was also at the 2018 Grammy Awards tonight (January 28) in New York City.

Like Eve, Anna skipped a dress in favour of tailoring with this Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 plaid suit. But, this is nothing new for the actress who’s worn a suit to the Grammys before.

Boudoir met boardroom with this look, and here I would argue that the seductive appeal of the lace La Perla ‘Quartz Garden’ bodysuit necessary to balance the boxier shapes.

Pink Casadei pumps were an unexpected addition to the ensemble, offering a flirty, girlish finish to its sultrier connotations.

Anna Kendrick In Giamba – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Anna Kendrick has been busy promoting ‘Pitch Perfect 3.’ Following a visit to the ‘Today’ show, she stopped by ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Monday (December 18).

Some of her previous ensembles fell a little flat, but this Giamba Fall 2017 outfit will hopefully win her praise.

The dress was brimming with luxurious details with the lace blouse playing off the intricate pattern on the skirt.

The piece had a modern baroque inspiration with the slit neckline and mini length balancing the opulent details.

The actress added a modern flair with her strappy heels.

Did she win you over with this look?

Who Wore Gucci Better? Kate Bosworth or Anna Kendrick?

Thanks to JGV’s brilliant memory we have this who wore it better? moment.

A young, fresh faced Kate Bosworth was the first to wear this -then- fresh-off-the-runway Gucci Fall 2006 dress to the ‘Superman Returns’ London premiere.

11 years later, Anna Kendrick wore the same dress to the ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ LA premiere, taking an already sexy dress a few steps further with the Giuseppe Zanotti over-the-knee boots.

I have a feeling that Kate, who styled her look with Louboutins, will win this by a landslide, but I’m still gonna root for the boldness and unexpectedness of Anna’s look.

Anna Kendrick In Tanya Taylor – Good Morning America

If ever there was a place to wear PJs it was on Good Morning America, but Anna Kendrick opted to leave them at home on this for her early morning interview on Monday (August 21), where she said, “Zendaya’s really doing the Lord’s work making it fashionable for all of us to wear pajamas.’

A statement I’m sure you strongly disagree with.

Instead she opted for a Tanya Taylor Resort 2018 LBD with some character imbued via the tricolor ribbons lacing up the side.

This dress fits her personality to a T: fun, playful and full of beans plus there’s no over-styling going on here.
