The most important day in Hollywood has come and gone, and as always, we are here to give you a rundown of the most spectacular looks on the red carpet at the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Below is one such look.
In a sea of A-list stars in long gowns and frothy princess frocks, Anna Kendrick went down the sexy and edgy route in an all-black ensemble that consisted of a sleeveless dress from J. Mendel and a pair of peep-toe platform pumps from Christian Louboutin. The 28-year-old actress has recently taken the New York Fashion Week by storm and is quickly becoming a style icon in her own right.
Anna wore a black gown from J. Mendel’s fall 2014 collection, which features asymmetrical details, sheer panels, floral embroidery, sexy crisscross straps on the back, and a pleated chiffon skirt. Her hair was styled in an elegant French twist, and she carried a red box clutch from Rauwolf. She finished off her look with vampy red nails, stunning jewels from Piaget, and a pair of “Jenny Sling” pumps from Christian Louboutin.

The Jenny Sling platform pumps feature knotted front straps, peep toes, slingback straps, stiletto heels, black silk satin, and the brand’s signature red leather soles. This particular style is currently unavailable, but we did find these shoes in red suede:

Anna was also spotted looking chic and pretty at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, which was in stark contrast to her vampy look at the recently concluded Oscars. The Pitch Perfect star wore a white dress from Christian Dior’s resort 2014 collection, which features an open back, an asymmetrical design, and blue and blush panels on the skirt. Her hair was swept to one side in a low ponytail, and she carried a large pink-and-black clutch from Dior. She finished her look with pink lips and a pair of nude “Xenia” sandals from Jimmy Choo.
