Red Carpet Wrap: Kristen Wiig




* Kristen Wiig turned out at the Anchorman 2 premiere in a grey-and-salmon Prada gown.

Embroidered and embellished with gathered detailing, there was just too much going on here for it to work. Simple is best.

* Christina Applegate chose Lorena Sarbu as the designer for her dress for the same premiere. The cap sleeve gown with embellished bodice from the pre-fall 2013 collection is an instant classic. We love.

* Julia Roberts has never looked better. She was on the red carpet for the premiere of August: Osage County in a Proenza Schouler purple dress with a faux-wrap asymmetrical tiered skirt. The styling is magnificent.

* Leslie Mann attended the London premiere of Anchorman 2 in Viktor & Rolf white wool satin-lapel tuxedo jumpsuit. She styled the look with a tweed coat, black pumps, a black clutch and red, glossy lips. Perfection.
