Red Carpet Fashion Awards

As you know, Elizabeth Banks has been my favourite on the red carpet this year so far, but I wasn’t crazy about the dress she wore to last night’s New York premiere for her latest movie, ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’.

Her Peter Pilotto Fall 2012 beaded floral-print dress, with cut-outs on the bodice, is stunning on the runway, but I’m not feeling it on Elizabeth.

I think it has something to do with the styling. Maybe it would’ve worked better for me if she had stripped back the glamour and worked a simpler look.

Elizabeth Banks schooled January Jones on how to rock a Mary Katrantzou dress on the red carpet tonight at the 2012 Met Gala.

When I learnt that Elizabeth would be wearing the British-based designer, I knew she wouldn’t wimp out, and I’m proud that she picked the least safe look and worked it.

The digitally printed dress with an oversized peplum and central split was teamed with a red clutch and Christian Louboutin peep-toes with an embellished heel.

I don’t suppose this will go down well with many, but she is my favourite so far.

Despite matching the red carpet, no one could miss Elizabeth Banks at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held on Saturday night at the Washington Hilton.

The ‘Hunger Games’ actress seems to still be embracing her character, Effie Trinket’s love for bright colour on the red carpet. No complaints here.

On this occasion, Elizabeth opted for a bright-red Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 dress.

The otherwise basic strapless column gown boasts a pleated peplum which narrows her waist.

Elizabeth accessorized her dress with a selection of gold cuff bracelet, gold hooped earrings, plus a Lara Bohnic black-and-gold clutch.

Elizabeth Banks helped celebrate the start of the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival by attending the ‘The Five Year Engagement’ premiere opening night party, held at the MOMA in New York City.

The actress wore a Peter Pilotto Spring 2012 ensemble.

The look featured an abstract red-and-navy short-sleeve top paired with a cut-out lace-effect chiffon skirt with a nude underlay.

Elizabeth is one actress who you can never predict when it comes to red-carpet dressing.

She always gives us a wide range of varied looks.

With her hair swept over one shoulder she completed the look with blue suede pumps.

You can buy Elizabeth’s Peter Pilotto top from farfetch.com and her skirt is available from Net-A-Porter.com.

Elizabeth Banks promo tour for ‘The Hunger Games’ was considerably shorter than co-star Jennifer Lawrence, but it was just as enjoyable.

In fact I preferred Elizabeth’s run because of all the colour and bedazzlement which stayed true to her character Effie Trinket.

She started with orange Atelier Versace and ended with orange Elie Saab.

Elizabeth Banks attended the Restoration Hardware Spring 2012 launch held in LA yesterday evening.

‘The Hunger Games’ actress is keeping up her love affair with colour by wearing an orange Andrew Gn Spring 2012 dress.

Her beautifully dress with draped sleeves and skirt plus a ruffled detail cascading from the waist was teamed with a simple matching belt instead of the beaded belt presented on the runway.

A simple side-parted bun, gold earrings and rose-gold Christian Louboutin mirrored peep-toes completed the look.
