Anna Kendrick was having a bit of a “fashion marathon” during the promotional road to the 2010 Oscars, for which she was nominated for her role in “Up in the Air”. The otherwise naturally casual Anna was rocking some serious runway looks and becoming one of my favorite ladies to watch for. Lately Anna has been playing it safe on the carpet with pretty dresses, but nothing has stood out to me.
Last night I was wowed when Anna wore one of my favorite dresses from the resort 2012 collection by Oscar de la Renta. I love the aqua color and balloon skirt of the airbrush and threadwork guitariste embroidered dress.
I do have some critiques as I believe she could have benefited from some tailoring so that the dress better fit her petite frame. I think that perhaps black sandals were in order instead of pumps and I’ve never been one for handles on clutches, so I’m not on board with the Judith Leiber clutch.
While it was far from perfect, I adored this selection for the premiere of her movie “50/50” at the Toronto International Film Festival. Hopefully Anna is heading back in the right direction — this was definitely a good start.
