Anna Kendrick Shares Her Style Essentials & Red Carpet Icon


Anna Kendrick is one of the few stars in Hollywood who seems genuinely down-to-earth, as well as being very talented and hilarious too (just check her always funny tweets!). The actress has opened up on her personal style, sharing her style essentials. When asked to describe one outfit she would wear for the rest of her life, she responded that she would prefer to go casual and comfortable when faced with that choice:

”A big, fuzzy cashmere J.Crew sweater, jeans and Converse – so at least I’d be comfortable.”

When it comes to red carpet style, Anna loves timeless elegance and admits she looks up to Cate Blanchett as her red carpet style icon. Anna was particularly impressed by one Givenchy dress Cate wore to the Oscars a few years ago and think she always makes amazing sartorial choices no matter what red carpet she’s on:

”Cate Blanchett [is my red carpet style icon]. She wore this Givenchy Couture dress to the 2011 Oscars, it was the coolest dress I’ve ever seen. It was futuristic and groovy at the same time. It helps that she’s, like, heaven.”

Anna plays a pregnant mom-to-be in new film ‘The Hollars’ and reveals that she was surprised by how comfortable a pair of maternity pants she was given on set was. She took them home and loved how amazing they felt when she tried them on, describing them as the best thing she owns. She shared:

”I was given a pair of maternity pants on the set of The Hollars that we didn’t end up using. They’re amazing. So comfortable.”
