Anna Kendrick added some vampish glamour to the Art of Elysium’s 7th annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles, held at the Skirball Cultural Centre on Saturday night (January 11).
In a black J.Mendel Spring 2014 pleated dress with lace bolero- style shoulders and an on-trend cut-out detail, it’s great to see Anna move away from her tried and tested nude and blush looks, but this feels a little too structured.
The embellished clutch is a nice touch, but the Christian Loubotuin ‘Love me’ bow-front heels are a little too prim, I would have preferred to see this look styled with a high sandal.
While it’s refreshing for Anna wear something more daring, I’m just not convinced it works. I can’t help but feel it’s a little too structured especially with such formal hair. Some waves like was saw at the Z100’s Jingle Ball last year would have been so much better. Do you agree?
