Filmmaker Edgar Wright recalls Brie Larson blowing everyone away when she showed up to read for a role in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Brie Larson’s audition was just amazing. I’d seen a long line of people coming into the Universal lot to audition, and some people who were reasonably established. Brie – who was 19 at the time, maybe she was even 18 when she auditioned – blew everybody else away. Jared [LeBoff, Scott Pilgrim executive producer] and I both said afterward, “We’ve got to cast her.”

Though her acting has received much-deserved credit, her outfit that night won’t get the same praise from us. We were not too thrilled with her mixed patterned dress.

The combination of black lace, blue sequins, and beige embroidered was just odd. Plus, it didn’t do her fit figure any justice.

Her outfit is from the Fall 2015 Couture Collection of Giambattista Valli.
