Anna Kendrick at the Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition Event

Posted on February 13, 2014

It’s funny. If we had to describe her style off the top of our collective head, we’d say something along the lines of “Pretty, but awkward.” Since that’s a pretty good description of the Miu Miu house style, it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that she basically won this red carpet.


Anna Kendrick attends Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition – “Spark & Light” Screening – at Diamond Horseshoe in New York City.


Sure, it’s all a bit much, especially when you factor in that background, but it all seems to come together nicely on her. Maybe it’s the coat, which is TO DIE FOR. But that sweater’s pretty ridiculously cute too.  We don’t think we like the shorts too much and we definitely don’t like matching the purse to them. That’s the one wrong note here. Love the shoes too. Pulling out the red in the sweater and tying it together. Nicely done. In this case, it couldn’t look too matchy, since there are so many colors in this outfit.

    If you ignore the fact that nothing here goes with anything else, it’s pretty great. She should definitely wear Miu Miu more.

    • Lucía Gavello

      You know, if I switch the skort (and really, how can you not) for black shorts or a skirt, I can live with everything else.

    • KiP07

      If I’m not mistaken, this is actually from the Prada Resort 2014 collection. I agree, however, that this kind of a look suits her more than what she usually wears.

      • Scimommy

        Oy, these stars. Attending a designer’s event wearing *another* designer? I thought there were rules against that.

        • Alyssa Ball

          I’m not sure if it’s as bad in this case — Miu Miu is Miuccia Prada

          • Scimommy

            #facepalm I knew that. Thanks!

      • SylviaFowler

        It is definitely from that Prada collection, yes.

    • jspark

      Actually I think the pattern is the same in the jacket and the skort. You could say it’s a case of the carpet matching the drapes.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        *snorts with laughter*

  • @Biting Panda

    Yes darling! She’s got the good hair and a perfect cat eye too. I could not adore her more.

    • Alyssa

      Her makeup is to die for!

  • Sobaika

    Hats off to whoever did her makeup, it looks deceptively simple.

    She’s pulling off the outfit much more than anyone should be allowed to do, but it’s giving me sad skort flashbacks.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      I am LOVING the makeup! Hair too!

      At least this skirt/short/skort thing doesn’t have one of those buckles on the hip like mine did 🙁

  • Trent

    Too twee for words. Unless you’re sixteen (going on seventeen) this outfit is too young for you.

    • Funny, I was just thinking that Taylor Swift probably already has her order in for the sweater and shorts. Proving your point!

  • I prefer to think of that as a cute skirt.

    • fursa_saida

      At the third picture I let out a breath of relief because I thought it WAS a skirt, and the first two pictures just featured unfortunate optical illusions. How innocent I was. (Edited for bizarre omission of articles/choices of preposition. I don’t know what that was about.)

      • I know. It’s so much nicer as a skirt.

        • demidaemon

          I agree. Once you know they are shorts, there is some serious recoiling from your monitor.

  • lunchcoma

    I want that coat.

    • Jackie4g

      I don’t necessarily want the coat, but I love what Miu Miu did with a fairly large print. Love the neckline and deeply cuffed sleeve.

    • tereliz

      That coat is my everything! *dies*

      It looks like a good weight for Southeast Louisiana, which is almost never a factor in my coat porn fantasies, but I like to think I’d get a lot of wear out of it. You know, if it didn’t cost more than my house note.

  • sagecreek

    Love the shoes.

    That backdrop is not growing on me.

    • @Biting Panda

      For some reason I’m obsessed with it. I’m chalking it up to cabin fever. I’ve turned it into theme wallpaper.

      • demidaemon

        I like it better with this look. With Solange, I couldn’t even see it because of her WTF outfit, and, with Haillee, it looked like the cats were coming to feed. ON YOUR SOUL.

        Here, though, I appreciate and kind of love it.

      • MilaXX

        Every since the Uncles mentioned it, I’m imagining it in my bathroom.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    I swear, all I see when I look at this picture is a pair of legs and a floating head.

  • Danielle

    Her head is on point.

  • Gatto Nero

    *Love* the coat and shoes.
    The rest I can take or leave, though the separates look fine on her.

    • TropiCarla

      The coat and shoes are genius together. Brava!

  • Imasewsure

    The bag brings in too much twee but I really like all of this (even if the awesome coat and the cute outfit really don’t belong together). Pretty and cute – she’s pulling it off I think

  • colorjunky

    Suede shoes and shorts seem odd to me. Although I agree that the color of the shoes is a clever one.

  • Alyssa

    I will take this Miu Miu coat as well. Good thing I just pretend shop, and not for real, or else I’d be in big trouble with my husband today!

  • Violentcello

    That coat is amazing. Makeup is fab. And I would happily cut a bitch for that sweater, so nicely done, Miss Kendrick.

  • demidaemon

    I had no idea those were shorts. I thought they were a skirt. This is a major problem. Also, I like the shoes in theory, but something about the height of the heel is throwing off the proportions for me. Overall, for Anna, I’d call this an attagirl.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Lord help us that these are not skorts.

      • demidaemon

        I think they are just wide-legged shorts. If they were skorts, I’m sure there would be some weird flap of fabric over the front of the crotch. I’m not seeing it, so I think we’re safe.

    • lamamu

      Okay, I just spent a wrong amount of time staring adjacently to her nether regions and I think that’s a skirt…now to massage the wrinkle that has formed between my eyes before it sets. Sigh. Oh, who am I kidding? That wrinkle done set ages ago. Double sigh.

      • demidaemon

        I don’t even know anymore. It’s so weird.

    • filmcricket

      She often seems to have that proportion problem, her skirts are just a skosh high, as are the heels. It’s nothing to do with modesty, and everything to do with what a wee lady she is.

  • SugarSnap108

    LOVE that coat, and I really dig this collection of colors. Her head looks great, too.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Love love love that coat. And that’s all.

  • MilaXX

    Serious coat porn for this Miu Miu collection. I don’t mind shorts and heels, but I would have prefer tights or even tights and boots.

  • Daisy Walker

    Does every. single. item. need to be a print? I’m actually surprised the bag and shoes aren’t prints as well. *grumble grumble*

  • mjude

    another coat that I love. my closet is filing up…

  • DTLAFamilies

    Personal best for her. And she has the funniest twitter so I’m glad seeing her look so great yet staying true to her personality.

  • RussellH88

    Why is the backdrop covered in the Siamese cats from Lady and the tramp?

  • kfizz

    😮 Personal best, imo.

  • Anna

    I’m loving everything to do with her hair: colour, shine, just the right amount of volume. I just love her, even with the skort, and even though it won’t be as good as the first one I’m down with the return of the Barden Bellas.

  • hughman

    Miu Miu and Stitch.

  • Verascity

    I think the shorts would be better if they didn’t fit her so awkwardly. The rest is great to me. I’m a little freaked out by the bag because I have one in literally exactly the same shade of both blue and silver.

  • Pennymac

    Squinting to picture maybe a solid black bottom and keeping everything else? I think that would make the coat/sweater pairing too random. Maybe its just the “shorts” idea that I’m just not liking.

  • filmcricket

    I want a girl with a short skirt and a loooooooong jacket!

    I hate that sweater. Like, actively, physically hate it. I wish the skort was a skirt, but otherwise everything else here is pretty cute, and I want that purse.

  • deelup

    This is great for her. Especially the makeup. She usually looks so severe. This is lovely.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Fabulous coat!

  • Karen Tamarack

    Head to toe; want want want.

  • Trickytrisha

    Cute, quirky, shouldn’t work but does. Loving the whole thing.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Her FACE!

  • boweryboy

    I love the coat with the shorts – complimetary colors and complimentary patterns. I think adding the sweater was a bridge too far. She should have went with a simple black top and I have no words for those shoes.

    • bellafigura1

      Completely agree. The sweater is the problem.

  • nowlo

    I love it. The coat is just gorgeous.

  • Erica

    I want that coat.

  • nannypoo

    I actually hate the coat. I know it’s not covered with spiders, but that’s what it looks like to me. I love everything else. She’s beautiful.

  • snarkalicious


  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Her hair and makeup is terrific!

  • livesarah

    Those shorts are an abomination. I love the colour, I even quite like the matchy purse, but the shape… ugh.

  • a_liking

    wow, her head is lookin 10/10. hair and makeup are flawless. would love the whole look if she had different bottoms on.

  • Violina23

    I think her hair and makeup look GORGEOUS too

  • Columbinia

    The colors in the clothes are perfect for Anna Kendrick, so that helps a lot.

  • Just gorgeous. Fashion synchronicity. Everything is meant to be in this ensemble – and I would cut a bitch for that coat.

  • marlie

    I love the shoes, and I think the coat – and maybe the sweater – would work on their own with a different outfit. As it is, altogether, I’m not feeling it.

  • mrspotts66

    adore the coat!
    wish i could wear something like that.

  • Mimi

    I love it, but there’s something off? With the coat on, I’m kinda disturbed by the color, but without it, it looks incomplete?

  • colleenjanel

    The coat, shoes and purse are all amazing together. I could do without anything under the coat.

  • Therese Bohn

    Ultimate coat porn!

  • BrooklynBomber

    Uh oh. The Kate Beckinsalization of Anna Kendrick begins.

  • berkeleygirl

    For someone so tiny, she has an incredible sense of what works on her. She rarely, if ever, is overwhelmed by what she’s wearing. Also love her hair/makeup…

    • she has lovely coloring, no? i’m a sucker for a redhead, natural or otherwise.

  • out of my way, i’m making a run for that coat! the purse would be perfect if it was a lighter brighter turquoise.

  • Mia Moreno

    Gorgeous! I love it so much, the colors are just rich and everything is luxe. I want it all.

  • icm

    love,love,love anna kendrick ,hate,hate,hate her outfit.

  • Diego!

    Thank God she is not wearing a mask, it would be very hard to distinguish her from that background. This is TOO MUCH. Honey, no. I love your hair.

  • carnush

    Wow! The is the best I’ve seen her look, ever. Perfect for her and super stylish.

  • E2_Remote

    LOVE her makeup. And specifically, whoever did Anna’s eyes, please call Michelle Dockery, I would love to see her do something similar to Anna instead of her usual eye makeup minimalism.

  • crash1212

    Shoulda been a WERQ. This is perfection on her.

  • Sally Spannagle

    The outfit (without the coat and baby purse) is hot. Especially on her. In my opinion!

  • decormaven

    She is rocking that coat. Gorgeous!

  • She looks as gorgeous as that delicious coat and those fab shoes.

  • Michelle Gennari

    Really love the sweater. She looks good but – her head is big. Just sayin’

  • cocohall

    Every time I see this girl I think she just doesn’t quite believe in herself yet. My guess is she sees herself as a real theater geek, and yet she has been invited to sit at the cool kids’ table and she is too polite to beg off and not quite ready to just own it (for example like JLo or Angelina or other lady stars). I’ll bet she grows into her style over the next few years. Hair and makeup here are great; the rest is too juvenile. Send it to Hailee S.
