Style Crush: Anna Kendrick

Perhaps the phrase that best suits 24-year-old actress Anna Kendrick is ‘taking the bull by the horns’. Having only been taking the lead on our screens since 2007, she’s made quite a name of herself in Hollywood. Her earlier efforts include Rocket Science, Elsewhere, The Marc Pease Experience, and a small role in the soon-to-be smash hit, Twilight. Soon after, she stars in award-winning Up In The Air, for which she won 3 Best Supporting Actress Awards, and the Palm Springs Rising Star Award. Oh, did I mention she made her Broadway debut in High Society for which she was nominated Tony Award as Best Actress (she was the second youngest person ever to be nominated for this), and won the Theatre World Award and Drama Desk award, all when she was just 12 years old?

As well as all this, her fashion sense has been most inspiring! Here are some pictures to show why I’m developing a severe style crush on Anna Kendrick…

I love what she wore to the Oscars, a beautiful Elie Saab couture gown with matching Pink Sergio Rossi heels. She was criticized somewhat for looking like an 8-year-old all dressed in pink, but I think she looks incredibly cute and picked up the ‘nude trend’ exquisitely.

Kendrick opts for a baby-blue Alberti Ferrarti silk bustier dress and Sergio Rossi slingbacks to match.

Festivalness

My Sundays, as you probably know by now, are usually spent doing mostly nothing, but tomorrow I’m going to a festival. I’m super excited because I get to dress up festival-style! I’ve surfing the net for the best bohemian/festival-ly pieces.

Topshop have some of the best festival dresses, I like this floral number (£35) the most, the frills at the top and the flowy bottom is gorgeous. I’d team with pink, green or black doc martens to give it an edgy touch (and you can’t very well go waddling about a festival in sandals/pink kitten heels now can you!?).

This studded suede duffel bag in nude is very bohemian-y and perfect for keeping festival essentials in (plus it goes with the dress!!!!). You can find it now for just £35 at Asos.com.

In terms of designer wear, this bold-shouldered Balmain jacket is just irresistable. Wear to a festival with skinny jeans and army boots for a darker, military-inspired look.

So yeah, that’s the festival outfit idea that you lot should try. I’ll take some pictures and show you what I wore tomorrow, and I’m gonna conclude with Fyfe Dangerfield’s cover of Billy Joel’s ‘She’s Always A Woman To Me’, which you’ve probably seen in the UK’s latest John Lewis advert. I LOVE it…

I’m Changing

…My style.

This picture inspired me :)

So, from now on, this is it:

Its indie with hippyness, bohemian colours with a little bit of punk and vintage thrown in.

Also, I chopped up the picture and made the new header :)

Thought you should all know.

That is all.
