The Hunger Games: Elizabeth Banks In Versace

Who: Elizabeth Banks

Where: At the LA premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless orange Versace gown, featuring gold detailing on the bodice, teamed with a copper box clutch and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: So I was already blown away by Elizabeth Bank’s amazing red carpet choices so far on this Hunger Games promo tour and I thought it would be hard to top the stunning Elie Saab gown, but this vibrant figure-hugging Versace gown is breathtaking.

Everything from the silhouette to the colour to the exquisite detailing on the bodice this is one gorgeous gown and it looks incredible on her – it really does show off her amazing body and I love how she finished off her look with a modern and fresh hairdo.

Do you prefer this orange beauty or the metallic glitz of the Elie Saab couture?

The Hunger Games: Elizabeth Banks Wows In Elie Saab & Alexander McQueen


So The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has taken on Europe ahead of its November 21 release, and we’ve already seen the stars hit London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Rome. For months I have been excited about the red carpet looks, Jennifer Lawrence completely wowed me when she was promoting the first movie in that gorgeous gold lame Prabal Gurung gown. But with Jennifer’s pixie crop, that I am not sure I like, and her constant need to wear Dior, for me the Catching Fire red carpet has all about Elizabeth Banks so far.

The actress who plays the flamboyant Effie in the film has completely blown me away with her red carpet fashion choices – from the gorgeous custom-made Jason Wu gown that she wore to the London premiere to the stunning embellished silver maxi in Berlin and the Alexander McQueen beauties in-between.


My favourite look so far has to be this metallic embellished Elie Saab Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection. Everything about this dress is just perfection. Presented as a bridesmaid dress in the Haute Couture runway show, this gown is stunning – I love the ombre-effect to the embellished detailing and the sexy elegance of the sweetheart neckline. What I also adore is that the look is finished off perfectly with gorgeous drop earrings and wavy hair.

Another great look had to be her Paris premiere gown, a striking Alexander McQueen gown featuring colourful embroidery and beading to the neckline and waist with a feather belt. Not quite as glitzy as the Elie Saab but just as striking – I love the colourful neckline and the feathered detailing around the waist. Simply gorgeous.

What are your thoughts so far on The Hunger Games promo tour – have you been impressed with Elizabeth Bank’s red carpet looks?

Hunger Games: Effie Barbie Goes On Tour


It seems it isn’t just Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth who are travelling the world to promote The Hunger Games – Catching Fire film – it looks like Effie Barbie couldn’t resist getting in on the act as well.

Elizabeth Banks’ mini-me, is living it up on the film’s global tour – hitting the red carpet, having her make-up done, wearing incredible headgear, sipping champagne, and even photobombing the stars as they promote the movie.

My Effie Barbie is in the post and I can’t wait for her to arrive so when I saw these piccies on Elizabeth’s Facebook page I just had to share – they are just so hilarious. I think my favourite has to be where Effie is having her hair and make-up touched up – such a diva!!!

Anyone else a little jealous of a Barbie doll?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Elizabeth Banks Wearing Alexander McQueen

Elizabeth-banks-VF2013Who: Elizabeth Banks

Where: At the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood

Wearing: A poppy print organza Alexander McQueen gown from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with a plexi tortoiseshell belt and metal honeycomb skull box clutch

Verdict: I actually hoped that someone might have worn this to the main event, but I think everyone was playing it a little too safe, so I was pleased to see that Elizabeth Banks added some colour to the Vanity Fair party.

As well as being vibrant, I love that orange poppy print, I also love the sexy vibe of the low-cut bodice and the glitz of the Alexander McQueen gold accessories. The only thing I can’t quite get on board with is the Jedward hair-do – is it just me or does that not work so well???

People Like Us: Elizabeth Banks Sparkles In Elie Saab

Who: Elizabeth Banks 

Where: At the screening of “People Like Us” in New York City

Wearing: A nude, fully embroidered Elie Saab halterneck cocktail dress, with an open back, from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with Pierre Hardy strappy heels, an Edie Parker clutch, and jewellery by Cartier

Verdict: This her second look from the Elie Saab autumn/winter 2012 collection, I loved her jumpsuit that she wore to the MTV Movie Awards, but this cocktail dress is just flawless. I love the halterneck style on Elizabeth, but what makes this fully embellished dress shine for me has to be the glittering metallic ombré effect – simply gorgeous.

I love that she didn’t do too much with her accessories both the clutch and heels matched perfectly, I especially love the triple gold and nude strap heels by Pierre Hardy.

As always I am blown away by Elizabeth from head-to-toe, her dress is divine, her accessories are perfection, and her make-up and hair is flawless. LOVE it all.

MTV Movie Awards: Round Up – The Standouts & The Predictable

This years MTV Movie Awards weren’t what I was expecting, normally for MTV’s award ceremonies there isn’t much off the red carpet that I want to report on, but this time round I was pleasantly surprised, granted there were still a few predictable choices from the likes of Jennifer Aniston, and a few shockers, yes Jenna Dewan I am talking about you, but overall it was quite an interesting red carpet.

One of my favourite looks has to be Elizabeth Banks in this gorgeous, very trendy and perfect for the MTV Awards Elie Saab jumpsuit from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection. I absolutely love the lace panelling to the arms, legs and neckline, as well as the flawless tailoring of the jumpsuit, which fits her perfectly. Also I am glad to see Lulu Guinness’ lips clutch hitting the red carpet.

Next up we have three of my other favourite looks from three young actresses that really did shine. From Shailene Woodley giving Elizabeth Banks a run for her money for best jumpsuit in a black tuxedo halter menswear-inspired look by Stella McCartney from the autumn/winter 2012 London Evening Collection. From this picture her hair lets it down but trust me her fishtail braid was a divine touch, I am also loving her black lucite Stella McCartney heel sandals.

Emma Stone continued to impress me in this edgy monochrome Martin Grant Paris cocktail dress, which has been modified from an autumn/winter 2012 look, the architectural detailing to the bodice really makes this dress standout, plus her gorgeous nude leather ‘Grace’ Brian Atwood heels and tousled updo. Very chic look.

Working sports luxe to perfection was Emma Watson who looked gorgeous and edgy in Brood’s autumn/winter 2012 digital-printed top and skirt. Finishing off her flawless look were Tabitha Simmons Gothic strappy sandal heels.

I do love a good collaboration and hitting the MTV Movie Awards red carpet was a one-of-a-kind Christian Siriano strapless black spiral pleated black silk taffeta mini adorned with Timex watches and Swarovski crystals and Christina Ricci worked it. Styled by Brad Goreski, this dress is different but utterly striking inspired by John Singer Sargent’s 1884 oil painting titled Portrait of Madame X. I love the detailing on the bodice with the watch gears and faces.

Now to the predictable, which might I add I don’t dislike I just wasn’t surprised with their choices. From Kristen Stewart in a Guishem tight-fitted mini from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, to Jessica Biel in a simple-yet-textured Chanel dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, I am grateful that she wore those gorgeous Barbara Bui heels as they are hot.

The most predictable award however has to go to Jennifer Aniston, who once again wore a LBD, granted this one is leather, but still it is black and from one of her go-to designers Valentino. Hey she looks good in this one shoulder number from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, but come on if any award show deserved colour it was the MTV Movie Awards.

Who gets your best dressed vote?

The Hunger Games: Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab

Who: Elizabeth Banks

Where: At the Berlin premiere of The Hunger Games

Wearing: A fully embellished orange Elie Saab gown from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2012 collection

Verdict: I am loving that Elizabeth keeps on working the bright colours, first was an orange Atelier Versace sexy mini, then came the vibrant yellow Bill Blass, which I think might be my favourite of her looks, then there was that daring raspberry Marc Jacobs, and the rainbow hues continued in Germany with this gorgeous fiery orange Elie Saab gown.

I thought The Hunger Games promo tour was going to be all about Jennifer Lawrence, and don’t get me wrong the world premiere and that Prabal Gurung gown did have the world watching her, but I have been so impressed with Elizabeth Banks – great designer choices, gorgeous colours, and fab hair for each and every look. This intricate embellished Elie Saab was another perfect gown for her. LOVE.
