Ever since we saw Malin Akerman play the stupidly spoilt and stroppy (but way sexy) sister to Katherine Heigl in '27 Dresses', we had an instant girl crush. After that, we’ve not seen a great deal of the lady…until this week. One killer red carpet dress after another unleashed by the feline-eyed American actress for both the 15th Annual Gen Art Film Festival premieres and various other celeb-y events meant that this week we’ve paid attention once more. And when you spot a girl who knows how to wear a dress so well, it’s important to do so. Her trick is to keep the styling simple and let her fabulous selection of dresses do the talking. Glossy hair, flawless makeup and sun-kissed skin (not fake tanned orange-ness) all contribute to her fuss free glamour.
Her fantastic Miu Miu crystal covered mesh frock needs nothing more than nude pumps and a cute clutch bag. For her second Miu Miu dress of the week (jealous? us?) – a midnight blue silk satin number with a deep V neckline – Malin cleverly just swoops up her hair to make the most the dress’s unusual cut, simply adding a studded pair of nude sandals.
With a plain LBD, Malin uses an alternative fashion tactic and jazzes things up on the accessories front – long tasseled earrings and super strappy sandals do the trick. And with her summery golden bandage dress, a croc clutch, hippy bracelets and killer gold sling-backs are enough to add interest.
