Elizabeth Banks As Effie Trinket In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’

Elizabeth Banks As Effie Trinket In Alexander McQueen - 'The Hunger Games  Catching Fire'

Just before Comic-Con 2013 kicks off on Thursday, a still has been released from the new ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ movie.

The photo shows Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark and Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, flanked by a typically eccentrically dressed Effie Trinket, played by Elizabeth Banks.

Effie wears an elaborate, structured Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 dress decorated with butterfly appliqués, with a butterfly-adorned fascinator perched on top of her blonde bouffant hairstyle.

Mesh gloves and what appear to be Iris van Herpen Spring 2012 ankle boots, with microbe-like tendrils supporting the base of the foot like stilettos, complete her costume.

Elizabeth Banks In Atelier Versace – 2013 Met Gala

Elizabeth Banks In Atelier Versace - 2013 Met Gala

With Elizabeth Banks confirmed to wear Brian Atwood footwear, there was no chance of her wearing a gown to the 2013 Met Gala, which was held in New York City on Monday evening.

The ‘Hunger Games’ actress donned a gold Atelier Versace gold chainmail jacket from the Spring 2013 collection, which hits all the right fashion notes for the theme of this event.

With black piping on her frock, the look was perfectly accessorized with a gold studded black Atwood minaudiére, and sexy Brian Atwood leather fringed ‘Elizabeth’ sandals with gold metal studs.

Gold jewels, an updo and cat-eyes completed her stylish uber sexy look.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better…Elizabeth Banks or Angelababy?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better Elizabeth Banks or Angelababy

Elizabeth Banks looked breathtaking when she took to the red carpet for the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party back in February wearing an off-runway Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 gown with a low-cut bodice.

She styled her poppy-print organza gown with an Alexander McQueen tortoise-shell belt with a gold buckle, Dior jewels, Brian Atwood heels and a gold McQueen clutch.

Angelababy wore the same gown when she attended the 2013 Huading Awards Ceremony in Hong Kong last month.
Opting to style her gown with the solid gold belt, I felt the jewels were too much for this gown; Elizabeth was right to keep her jewels simple.

Also, the excessive boobage was off putting. For letting the gown do all the talking, Elizabeth wins for me.

Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret - 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

I was very disappointed by Elizabeth Banks, who took to the red carpet on Saturday for the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington D.C.

It has a lot to do with the colour of her Roland Mouret ‘Lynon’ gown plus the styling was pretty lackluster.

I don’t like that she opted for this rust-coloured gown, which is so close to her hair colour.

This gown would’ve been better in any other colour. In some of the pictures she also looks washed out.

The halter gown with an open back and black ribbon detailing was styled with black Brian Atwood ‘Hamper’ pumps, a black Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch, Irene Neuwirth earrings and a simple updo.

Does this look work for you?

Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret – 2013 CinemaCon Awards

Elizabeth Banks  In Roland Mouret - 2013 CinemaCon Awards

Elizabeth Banks attended the CinemaCon awards ceremony held at the Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she was the recipient of the ‘Award of Excellence in Acting’.

She looked gorgeous wearing a Roland Mouret ‘Avalon’ Resort 2013 dress, which was presented in a sand-and-green colourway in the look book.

Her black dress, featuring a nude silk skirt with black floral lace and mesh overlay, a cowl neckline and an origami pleated bust, was simply styled with black pumps and H.Stern ‘Zephyr’ earrings in 18k noble gold with diamonds.

Once again, simple styling was the key to making this chic look work.

Elizabeth Banks In Alexander McQueen – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Elizabeth Banks In Alexander McQueen

Elizabeth Banks was one of the many stars to attend the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, hosted on Sunday evening at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood.

The ‘The Hunger Games’ actress wore a bold Alexander McQueen gown, Brian Atwood shoes, Dior jewels and an Alexander McQueen clutch.

The vibrant orange gown makes Elizabeth look fun and fresh and she pulls of the low-cut bodice well.

Unfortunately, the star’s hair is entirely too otherworldly for my taste. The height of the pouf just looks silly, instead of finishing her look off strong.

What do you think? Is this look a win, or does the hair detract from the gorgeous gown?
