Best Dressed Of The Week: Rosario Dawson

From parties to premieres, Kimberlee Oo brings us the weekly red carpet wrap-up.

Rosario Dawson Trance premiere London

Rosario who? The Sin City star isn’t really known for her red carpet prowess, but she certainly left her mark at the London premiere of Trance this week.

All eyes were glued to the 33-year-old and her dazzling ruby red gown, glamorous updo and killer-white smile, with the blogs ablaze about her 10/10 ensemble. The beaded Jenny Packham number fit Rosario like a glove and featured a simple neckline at the front, which gave way to an elegant open back.

While the real deal may be over $2000, you can still steal Rosario’s style – a stand-out gown like this is perfect for those one-off black-tie events. Sure, you might not be wearing haute couture that often, but when you do, this is the dress you need to have. The loose cap sleeves cover up less-than-perfectly toned arms, while heavy beading can also distract from a VPL or Spanx line. The open back feature is sexy yet flattering, and die-hard bra fans can still manage to wear a low-cut strapless. And, most importantly, it packs one heck of a statement. Team with a loose ‘do, a matching crimson lip and heavy lashings of mascara and you’ll be giving Jessica Rabbit a serious run for her money.
