Anna Kendrick In Christian Dior – 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala

Anna Kendrick In Christian Dior - 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala

I was shocked to see Anna Kendrick not wearing nude, blush or any neutral colour on the red carpet at 2nd Street Tunnel in California for the 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala.

Instead the ‘Twilight’ star donned a rich emerald-green Dior dress.

The satin frock with a bow accent was let down by some uninspiring styling.

A cute clutch, more interesting choice of heels and maybe a pretty lip colour would’ve lifted this look somewhat.

Chopard diamond spiral hair clips and matching earrings provided the finishing touches.

Alicia Vikander In Chanel – 2013 Art Of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala

Alicia Vikander In Chanel Pre Fall - Art Of Elysium 'Heaven' GalaYou may not have heard of Alicia Vikander, a relative newcomer on the scene. The young Swedish actress attended the 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala, hosted last night at 2nd Street Tunnel in Los Angeles, California.

Unfortunately, she still has a few things to learn about dressing for the red carpet. Her Chanel gown from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection left something to be desired.

The intricate nod to India and the lustrous Paris-Bombay vibe of the Chanel runway didn’t translate once removed from that magical stage.

The champagne colour and metallic embellishment at the shoulder and waist lost its charm and didn’t feel new or fresh—and certainly not heavenly. And the sash detail tucked into the skirt pockets came off as a strange afterthought.

Perhaps I would have liked this look better if Alicia had added some intensity with a smoky eye or had done something more exciting than pull her hair into a messy ponytail.

Camilla Belle In Carolina Herrera – 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala

Camilla Belle In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Camilla Belle looked breath-taking when she took to the red carpet at the 2nd Street Tunnel in California last night for the 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala.

Dressed in a dot print organza gown from Carolina Herrera’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection, the actress was most definitely the belle of the ball.

Her off-the-shoulder bustier-style gown with an asymmetrical tiered skirt was styled with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and a navy Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

A simple updo and flawless makeup completed this stunning look.

You may remember that she also wowed at this event last year wearing the same designer. The Bella/Herrera combination is proving to be more fruitful than Munn/Herrera.

Kirsten Dunst In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala

Kirsten Dunst In Louis Vuitton - 2013 Art of Elysium 'Heaven' Gala

Kirsten Dunst attended the 2013 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala held at 2nd Street Tunnel in California last night.

The blonde beauty wore an instantly recognisable Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 dress.

Her chequered column dress with a square neckline, open-back and three-quarter length sleeves was styled with gold pointy pumps and a cream LV clutch.

Kirsten didn’t overpower her look; opting for neutral makeup, drop earrings and soft, wavy tresses.

I have a feeling Kirsten wasn’t too happy about the shapelessness of this look, as in almost every picture she keeps her clutch in front of her.
