Anna Kendricks Talks To Us About Her Favourite Red Carpet Moment & More At Rachel Zoe’s ‘Major Must Haves’ Range Launch

Anna Kendrick took time out to talk to us at the launch of Rachel Zoe’s ‘Major Must Haves’ range from Jockey at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California, on Wednesday night.

She wore a casual look featuring a Rebecca Minkoff nude studded top, black J Brand jeans, Rachel Zoe shoes and a black leather Rebecca Minkoff clutch.

The ‘Twilight’ star shared her style evolution, her favourite red-carpet moments, her current inspirations, her must-have pieces and her current obsessions.

On the evolution of her style: I’ve gotten more comfortable with wearing more form-fitting dresses. I remember when I first started going to red-carpet events, my stylist wanted me to wear this beautiful Jason Wu dress, but I thought, “Wait, but a movie star should wear that dress! I’d look silly in it.” I ended up wearing something that I felt made me look friendly and approachable. Since then, I’ve gotten more comfortable wearing the more red-carpet-style dresses.

On her favourite red-carpet moment: A dress that was my dream dress but I didn’t know it until I saw it was this nude Dior dress that I wore to the London premiere of ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’. It was very ’30s. It was this beautiful colour. It was the dress I always wanted, but never even knew it!

On who’s currently inspiring her to up her fashion game: I just saw Cate Blanchett in this gorgeous Proenza Schouler at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, and I think she’s so statuesque and classy and she makes everything she wears look like art.

On must-have fall pieces: I’ve gotten into cowl necks – anything where I can pull my sleeves over my hands and get cosy. I love boots. OMG do I have too many boots! It’s actually pretty bad. And I love hats. I just bought a bunch of hats, which I didn’t mean to do. I have way too many soft, fuzzy hats. Every time I pass by an H&M, I have to go in and buy in more hats.

On what she’s obsessed with wearing at the moment: I have these Rag & Bone boots that I’ve been throwing on with jeans and a flannel. They’re the kind of boots that make an outfit complete, even though I kind of just threw on the rest of it.

Anna Kendrick In Badgley Mischka – Elle’s 19th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Anna Kendrick joined a host of stars including Cate Blanchett and Emma Stone on the red carpet for Elle’s 19th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills last night, held at the Four Seasons Hotel.

The ‘Twilight’ actress wore a Badgley Mischka Resort 2013 dress.

Her sexy black dress with gold embroidery detail would’ve looked amazing with some open-toe sandals.

With some lightness added to the look via the sheer midriff, I’m disappointed she added such heavy Brian Atwood pumps.

Anna’s gold Mulberry clutch was the perfectly complementary accessory as were her gold earrings.

A wavy hairstyle and neutral makeup completed her look.

Anna Kendrick In Halston Heritage – Late Show with David Letterman

Anna Kendrick lit up a dreary day in New York City yesterday as she made her way to the Ed Sullivan Theater for her guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ yesterday afternoon to promote her new movie ‘Pitch Perfect’.

When it’s sunny, celebs wear Fall clothes; when the weather is miserable they opt for summery pieces like Anna who wore a sunshine-yellow Halston Heritage Resort 2013 dress.

Her one-shoulder draped satin dress was paired with nude peep-toes and Dana Rebecca Designs jewels.

Anna Kendrick In Zuhair Murad – ‘Pitch Perfect’ LA Premiere

Anna Kendrick took to the red carpet for the premiere of her latest movie ‘Pitch Perfect’ in LA yesterday evening wearing her favourite colour: nude.

I can already feel a collective eye roll.

Yes, this is another nude dress from Anna but on this occasion her nude Zuhair Murad Fall 2012 dress with an A-line skirt and high neckline is embellished with gold beaded details.

Are you still with me?

The actress styled the look with metallic-pink Brian Atwood ‘Encanta’ sandals and Dana Rebecca Designs jewels.

Smoky eyes, glossy lips and wavy brunette tresses completed the look.

Do you like this look or are you o.v.e.r. Anna Kendrick in nude dresses?

Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab – ‘End of Watch’ LA Premiere

Anna Kendrick hit the red carpet at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in California yesterday evening for the premiere of her latest flick ‘End of Watch’.

In a recent interview, Anna stated that Elie Saab was one of her favourite designers. Considering this Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown is her third look by the designer in so many months, we believe her statement to be true.

We are so used to seeing the actress wear cute fit-and-flare mini cocktail dresses that it’s refreshing to see her select this very grown-up black-and-nude jersey gown with a decorated collar necklace.

The styling was kept simple with a copper Rauwolf clutch, light waves and a beautiful nude lip colour providing the finishing touches.

Do you love this simple, clean, sophisticated look, or would you have preferred something more girlie from Anna?

Anna Kendrick hit the red carpet for the premiere of her latest movie,’The Company You Keep’ during the Toronto Film Festival this weekend.

For the event, Anna wore a printed dress from the Mulberry Fall 2012 collection.

The actress, who has been choosing edgier looks of late, has tried again here with more success.

The Brian Atwood ‘Goldy’ sandals provide a pop of colour to her dark print dress.

Anna employed a bronze Rebecca Minkoff ‘Fling’ clutch, Pomellato jewels and a ponytail to finish her look.

Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab – ‘End Of Watch’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Anna Kendrick took the red carpet for the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her latest movie, ‘End Of Watch’ last night.

The actress wore a black Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown.

Her black long sleeve gown with net lace detail is beautiful, but I’m not excited about seeing it on Anna, especially as I had mentally reserved it for Angelina Jolie.

At first I blamed the poor photography at this event, but I realized I was just making excuses and settled on the fact that this is just not working for me.

Someone taller and with more presence was needed to pull this off.

Anna styled her look Brian Atwood peep-toes, Forevermark jewels and a Judith Leiber clutch.
