Elizabeth Banks In Roksanda – HFPA Annual Grants Banquet

Elizabeth Banks In Roksanda - HFPA Annual Grants Banquet

Elizabeth Banks attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual Grants Banquet at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (August 13) in Beverly Hills, California.

As you know I love Elizabeth Banks, colour and Roksanda, so my head felt like it was going to explode with joy upon seeing this look.

Prettily feminine with a fit and flare silhouette, the dress is given a hit of Roksanda’s signature contemporary flair with bold colour-block panels.

Never one to add dull accessories with an outstanding frock, the look was styled purple Jimmy Choo sandals, amethyst stone drop earrings and a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Charm’ clutch.

Elizabeth Banks In Balmain – ‘Magic Mike XXL’ LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks In Balmain - ‘Magic Mike XXL’ LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks attended the LA premiere of ‘Magic Mike XXL’ held at TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX on Thursday (June 25) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a sultry, figure-forming Balmain Spring 2015 Swarovski embellished dress, with sheer inserts turning up the heat several notches.

Paired with all black accessories including a Lee Savage clutch and Pedro Garcia pumps for the ultimate after-dark polish, methinks that some might be put off by Elizabeth having to go commando to pull this look off.

14th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

14th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

A group of lovelies flocked to the 14th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, hosted on Saturday (June 6) at a private Mandeville Canyon Estate in Los Angeles, California.

Elizabeth Banks
: Looking every bit like a ray of sunshine, the actress donned a bright chartreuse Prada jacquard-embroidered frock with nude lace Jimmy Choo shoes and Kwiat earrings. The quirkier nature of Prada designs can be problematic on the red carpet, but Elizabeth pulls off the bold look with elegance and aplomb.

Leven Rambin
: I loved seeing Leven in this striking Marchesa semi-sheer gown with exploded paisley embroidery. The sleek updo and deep red lip added another layer of vibrancy to this fresh outing.

Sharon Stone
: While the two-piece ensemble itself wasn’t so flattering to Sharon’s beautiful figure, what was more bothersome was the strange collection of accessories that cluttered the look—from the pashmina shawl to the overly decorative earrings and sandals.

Elizabeth Banks In Osman – ‘Love & Mercy’ LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks In Osman -  'Love & Mercy' LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks attended the premiere of ‘Love & Mercy’ at the AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday (June 2) in Beverly Hills, California.

As you know, I love nothing more than a sighting of Elizabeth on the red carpet – yes more so than the great Cate or Diane – so you won’t be surprised to learn that I was swooning at her latest offering.

Her Osman Fall 2015 dress not only raises the sensory factor via its bold red hue, but also via the sleek fit-and-flare silhouette and tasteful side cut-outs.

I know some aren’t fans of matchy matchy looks as its often considered that the wearer hasn’t been creative enough, but I live for a well-done matchy moment.

With the addition of Elizabeth’s red Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch and red Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind Crystal’ sandals this look couldn’t have been more perfectly styled.

As always, bravo Miss Banks, bravo.

Elizabeth Banks In Marchesa – ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks In Marchesa - 'Pitch Perfect 2' LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks attended the ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ LA premiere held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Friday (May 8) in Los Angeles, California.

As the producer/director of this movie, Elizabeth’s red carpet style has shifted from glorious Couture gowns to chic separates and few jumpsuits, while still maintaining her magnetic appeal.

That was the case when she stepped out on the red carpet wearing this Marchesa Fall 2015 look featuring a fringed halter scarf and sleek black trousers.

This look means business without being boring or stale.

I think those who tag Elizabeth as being consistently over-dressed don’t give her enough credit.

Elizabeth Banks In Michael Kors – 2015 Met Gala

Elizabeth Banks In Michael Kors - 2015 Met Gala

Elizabeth Banks attended the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

I saw little of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ theme in her Michael Kors cutout gown that needed a good steam for the wrinkles, although it was rendered in a glorious shade of teal blue.

Her architectural updo, along with a Lee Savage ‘Infinite Space’ clutch and Kara Ross ring, served to create a futuristic flair.

Perhaps I am overly disappointed as I was expecting so much more from the actress.
