Actress Alicia Vikander's red carpet style generally consists of two important elements: Louis Vuitton — she is the new face of the brand — and a perfectly unfazed yet slightly amused temperament. It's a magical combination.

Her appearance at the New York premiere of her film, "Testament Of Youth," on Tuesday night was no exception. It was chilly and wet evening, but Vikander ignored such trifling details, choosing instead an embroidered scoop-neck maxi dress. She hit the step-and-repeat with her hands in her pockets because, why not? It was almost as effortless as her casual low-bun, earring-less ears and lightly tanned skin. We are so used to seeing amped up, heavily accessorized young starlets in exaggerated poses and lots of makeup. But Vikander projects the ease of someone who's been in the industry for ages, with a few Oscars and ex-husbands under her belt. 

Does that kind of confidence come with the dress? If so, we'd like to place an order, please.
