Anna Kendrick In Christian Dior – ‘The Last Five Years’ New York Screening

Anna Kendrick In Christian Dior - 'The Last Five Years' New York Screening

Anna Kendrick attended the New York screening of ‘The Last Five Years’ on Monday evening (February 24).

Cementing her ever-rising star status by gaining the privilege of wearing Christian Dior, Anna wore a bicolour Dior dress with fishnet thin straps and full skirt.

A printed Dior clutch and angular-cut Dior pumps ensured all attention was on the dress while Dior Fine Jewellery ‘Pre Catelan’ pink gold, diamonds, and pink quartz earrings and the ‘My Dior’ yellow gold and diamonds bracelet infused a beautiful hint of colour into the look.

For me, you can’t really go wrong in Dior and this modern ladylike dress is a prime example. Anna’s look isn’t OTT or attention-grabbing, it simply epitomises understated elegance. Do you agree?

Carolina Herrera Fall 2014 Front Row

Carolina Herrera Fall 2014 Front Row

Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2014 show during New York Fashion Week took place on Monday (February 10) and, as expected, it drew a celebrity front row full of her most loyal fans.

Emmy Rossum: With so many memorable Carolina Herrera dresses under her belt, Emmy was no doubt shopping for her next red carpet look to be deemed BDOTW worthy. The actress looked uberchic, taking to the front row wearing a Carolina Herrera black-and-gold embroidered halter blouse and ivory wide leg pant with gold belt detail from the Resort 2014 collection. A few of you had mentioned that the last few red carpet appearances from Emmy haven’t exactly floated your boat for one reason or another, but I’m sure you will agree that this outfit puts her firmly back on track. Christian Louboutin ‘Lagoula’ t-bar sandals and rose-gold ‘Sweety Charity’ mini glitter bag with bow detail accessorized her look.

Dita Von Teese: The burlesque star caught the Carolina Herrera bug about 6 months ago, following her attendance to the Spring 2014 show and she continued her love affair on Monday afternoon. She wore a colour other than black when she selected this pink silk mikado blouse with silverfox fur sleeves and bow detail styled with a grey wool flannel pleated pant. Every thing else (hair and makeup) was business as usual.

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 Front Row

The front row at Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2014 show presented during New York Fashion Week on Thursday (February 8) was packed with stars who we are very likely to see wearing the runway looks in the very near future.

Emmy Rossum: Known to wear her fair share of Monique Lhuillier dresses, the ‘Shameless’ actress was front and centre wearing a white lace blouse, bandeau and pencil skirt from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection. The ladylike look was styled with a chic updo, with a red glossy lip and metallic-gold Rupert Sanderson ‘Elbaa’ pumps adding a punch to the look.

Anna Kendrick: The girl who loves a girlie-girl frock was glowing in the front row wearing a gold belted jacquard mini dress with a flared skirt from the Spring 2013 collection, which she styled with ankle-strap gold sandals from Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2013 collection. Blown-out waves and neutral makeup rounded out this golden look.

Anna Kendrick In Markus Lupfer – The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles

Anna Kendrick In Markus Lupfer - The Night That Changed America A Grammy Salute To The Beatles

Anna Kendrick joined Katy Perry on the red carpet at ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles’ held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Monday (January 27) in Los Angeles, California, where she was a guest presenter.

The actress went from sexy at the Grammys to edgy at this event, donning a Markus Lupfer Resort 2014 frock.

This yellow dress with a contrasting black exposed-zipper accent is her third look by Markus Lupfer in the space of a week.

I have to say I like this more experimental look from Anna. It’s not often you can say ‘Anna Kendrick’ and ‘edgy’ in the same sentence.

As much as I love the black styling, including a Rauwolf clutch, I’m not too fond of the Christian Louboutin ankle boots for my personal taste, but I suppose they work for the look she was going for.

Do the ankle boots work for you?

Anna Kendrick In Azzaro – 2014 Grammy Awards

Anna Kendrick In Azzaro Fall 2013 - 2014 Grammy Awards

Anna Kendrick was also on the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Pitch Perfect’ actress stunned in an Azarro pale lavender cut out dress.

Kendrick was set to present and dressed for the part with a statuesque gown that had a high slit in the front and a bejeweled cut out cleavage.

Adding to the elegance of the look was a Joan Hornig cuff, a silver clutch and sparkling earrings.

Although I wouldn’t have chosen this colour for the star, her hair and makeup looked flawless.

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

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?

Anna Kendrick In Topshop – 2014 Grammy Weekend Party

Anna Kendrick In Topshop - 2014 Grammy Weekend Party

Anna Kendrick attended the Delta Air Lines 2014 Grammy Weekend party, held at Soho House on Thursday (January 23) in West Hollywood, California.

The actress continued sport a more casual red carpet look – following Sundance Film Festival – wearing a Topshop blue-red-and-black crocus print overlay crop skater dress.

This mini dress is crying out for a feisty pair of heels, but sadly she opted for simple black platforms.

With a shimmering metallic mushroom-coloured Mulberry ‘Christy’ shoulder bag and gold jewels also accessorizing her look, she wore her hair back in a tight bun and pink lip shade.
