It's rare that funny girl Anna Kendrick doesn't look cute on a red carpet, but every so often she'll wow us by wearing a sophisticated, sleek ensemble that just screams "big screen siren." For instance, that time when she wore a black Band of Outsiders tuxedo (without a shirt underneath) to the 2015 Grammy Awards, or the elegant black and white Narciso Rodriguez gown she donned for the world premiere of "Into the Woods." The actress — and current face of Kate Spade — got all glamorous on us once again on Friday for the world premiere of "Pitch Perfect 2" in Los Angeles, wearing a deep purple and royal blue cut-out gown by Stella McCartney. Considering how the film is both a musical and a comedy, we're glad to see Kendrick didn't opt for a dress that fits in with either of those themes. Instead, she looked every bit the leading lady, completing her look with a silver box clutch, a statement earring and side-swept waves. Aca-mazing, don't you think?
