Elizabeth Banks has established herself as one of Hollywood’s best dressed celebrates. Nowadays, when she is on the red carpet, she consistently delivers. She is really adventurous with her style and she rarely does the same thing twice. When she was first starting out, however, she didn’t have this kind of success with her style. There were definitely some hits and a lot of misses. She didn’t quite know how to accessorize and some of the shoes she chose did not complement what she was wearing. Because she is so gifted with fashion now, we decided to take a look at her fashion evolution!
Premiere of Seabiscuit – 2003
Elizabeth Banks attended the premiere of “Seabiscuit” in this pale pink slip-like dress, accessorizing with a pink clutch and white heels. The dress looks really pretty. The sparkly details on it make it more formal. The shoes, however, leave something to be desired. They look a bit clunky, but that was the style at the time. We would have preferred something dainty since the dress is so delicate. Elizabeth ditched her signature blonde locks for the role but returned to the light side while promoting the film.
In addition to looking lovely at the premiere “Seabiscuit,” Banks also received favorable reviews for her performance. One reviewer from The New York Times commented that she has the grace and charm of an actress from Old Hollywood, which we can totally see. There is something about that hair and face that are just so classically beautiful. Unfortunately, while this should have been her breakout role, “Seabiscuit” didn’t catapult her into mainstream recognition. It would take a couple more years and several more roles for this theatre arts graduate to really break out and it would take many more years before she would become a household name.
