Beautiful in blue! That’s the only way to describe Anna Kendrick on the red carpet at the 2016 Met Ball, in her sequined Derek Lam gown. Love!
Anna Kendrick, 30, was one of the last few celebrities to arrive at the Met Ball on Monday night, May 2, in New York City. However, the Pitch Perfect actress and new author looked truly stunning in her blue gown for fashion’s biggest night.
Aca-awesome! Okay, maybe the Pitch Perfect puns are a little old for Anna Kendrick, but we just couldn’t help ourselves. The Oscar nominated actress really brought her A-game to the Met Ball, and now we’re totally drooling over how beautiful she looked for the big event.
Anna stunned in a form-fitting blue sequin gown designed by Derek Lam, her date for the evening. The gown had a V-neck top that cut down into her cleavage, showing just enough skin to look sexy while remaining totally classy. Plus, the sequins added a shine to the gown that helped it appear metallic for the “Manus x Machina” theme. Perfect!
The sequins were designed in a really cool way to appear like netting, but close up shots reveal that there is a sheer fabric keeping Anna’s body covered. Even cooler? The sequins gathered up around her waist, making for a cinched look that showed off her petite curves. Anna slayed!
Before hitting the red carpet, Anna teased her fans with a sneak peek at her ensemble for the evening. Well, sort of! The starlet posted an Instagram showing only her purse, courtesy of her arm sticking it out into the hotel hallway where she was getting ready. It was torture waiting to see the rest of the look, but totally worth the wait!
The night before the Met Ball, Anna surprised her Pitch Perfect co-star (and real life BFF) Ben Platt at the opening of his Broadway show, Dear Evan Hansen. Ben, who you might know as Benji in the Pitch Perfect films, captioned a photo of himself and Anna backstage, “She came. I cried.” So sweet! Those two are BFF goals for sure.
