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.

Christa B. Allen In MaxMara & Rebecca Minkoff – NYLON September TV Issue Party

Christa B. Allen attended the NYLON September TV Issue party at Mr. C Beverly Hills in California on Saturday evening.

The actress wore a shimmering multi-coloured MaxMara top with a cute pair of black Rebecca Minkoff shorts with leather panels.

I love her accessories which included a YSL ‘Y-Mail’ clutch and hot pink Casadei pumps.

Kohl-rimmed eyes, a glossy nude lip colour and wavy locks provided the finishing touches.

I love how Christa is always so well put together. She rarely puts a foot wrong on the red carpet, plus she’s not as predictable as her peers.

Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013

With the intense heat in New York City at the moment, the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013 show provided a breath of fresh air.

The collection was made up of easy, sporty, wearable separates with plenty of 60s and 70s references inspired by the work of iconic photographer Slim Aarons.

As someone who is obsessed with prints, I loved the florals, especially the floral ombre zipper vests and rich blue and red embroidered details on the jeans and cropped jackets.

We saw a lot of relaxed silhouettes, including sheer blouses, drawstring shorts, flares, print jackets, casual jumpsuits, all of which make for great summer staples.

While the designer didn’t give us any red carpet gowns, she did give the likes of Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Kate Bosworth and Miranda Kerr plenty of street style options.

Key accessories included cut-out booties, bi-colour sandals and a wide selection of the designers signature bags.

Front Row: Ryan Lochte, Lauren Conrad, Shenae Grimes, Tika Sumpter and Kristin Chenoweth

Favourites: Floral blouse with jeans and floral blouse with denim shorts

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Krysten Ritter, Hilary Rhoda, Cobie Smulders, Erin Heatherton, Lucy Hale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Jayma Mays, Chloe Sevigny and Lauren Conrad

Eva Mendes In 3.1 Phillip Lim – Out In LA

Eva Mendes quenched my thirst for chic summer dressing while walking her dog yesterday in LA.

She opted for a light, eye-catching look with covetable accessories. The perfect combination.

I love her red 3.1 Phillip Lim shift dress. It’s such an easy to throw on look.

She amped up the look with some Rebecca Minkoff statement accessories which included ‘Drew’ cage heels and a minty fresh eyelet ‘M.A.C.’ clutch.

The colour combination of red, mustard and mint green on paper may raise eyebrows, but it works so perfectly on Eva.

Do you love this as much as I do?

Krysten Ritter In Rebecca Minkoff – Great American Pillow Toss

Krysten Ritter has teamed up with Carpenter Co. and SleepBetter.org to launch the Great American Pillow Toss (GAPT), a campaign to encourage Americans to do everything they can to sleep better, which was held at Campus Martius Park in Detroit, Michigan, yesterday afternoon.

The star of ABC’s ‘Don’t Trust The B… In Apartment 23’ was basking in the sunshine wearing a summery Rebecca Minkoff ensemble.

A desert-inspired Ikat-print tank was styled with a chic white eyelet skirt with a leather waistband to create a part earthy, part sugary-sweet look.

More colour was added to the mix with a Rebecca Minkoff ‘Fairytale’ woven raffia clutch, which features neon leather accents and turquoise Rene Caovilla peep-toes.

Leandra Medine and Hilary Rhoda In Rebecca Minkoff – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Leandra Medine and Hilary Rhoda attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held in New York City on Monday evening, alongside designer Rebecca Minkoff.

The trio looked perfectly coordinated as they walked the red carpet wearing complementary blue dresses from the designer’s eponymous line.

The ‘Man Repeller’ blogger, who has previously walked in the designer’s runway shows, wore a vibrant cobalt dress with pink and green accents.

Never one to shy away from some edgy styling, Leandra tops off the dress with a silver-and-white moto vest. Strappy yellow Rebecca Minkoff sandals, a Rebecca Minkoff box clutch and fair share of jewelry accessorize the look.

Rebecca herself chose a casual watercolour print dress from her Resort 2013 collection, paired with a bright yellow Rebecca Minkoff clutch and strappy Rebecca Minkoff sandals.

Hilary opted for a more formal look, wearing a navy, azure and sky-blue colour-blocked Rebecca Minkoff gown with a thigh-high split and cut-outs under the bust.

The model accessorized with simple Rebecca Minkoff sandals and a white Rebecca Minkoff box clutch.

With matching centre-parted, tousled brunette locks, these ladies could easily be sisters – or have the same hairstylist, at least.

Cobie Smulders In Rebecca Minkoff – CBS Upfront 2012

Cobie Smulders was joined by Jason Segel and Josh Radnor on the red carpet for the CBS Upfront 2012 presentation yesterday.

The actress, who stunned in gown after gown during her ‘The Avengers’ promo tour, opted for a pretty Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mistral’ dress from the Spring 2012 collection.

Her delicate dress had a flirty side with cut-outs at the waist.

Cobie added a pop of colour to her spring white look by wearing coral suede pumps, which matched her lip colour.

JewelMint ‘Bermuda’ earrings completed her look. These earrings were designed by Krysten Ritter to benefit Autism Speaks.
