With a Rolodex that unearths access to designers like Proenza Schouler and Lanvin, stylist Cristina Ehrlich has the secret to rapidly transforming a talented beauty like Brie Larson into a regular on the Best Dressed list.
So how well does Larson slay a red carpet gown? Let the dripping-in-gold Calvin Klein design she wore to accept her Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama last month serve as a shining example. Or the baby blue and ultra sexy Versace piece she rocked at the SAG Awards, for instance. The two-toned Emilia Wickstead design she wore to the 88th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon on Monday afternoon was smartly executed, too.
And while each of Larson’s moments in front of the camera is memorable, the Oscar-nominated Room star doesn’t take the fashion frenzy too seriously. “I feel like the way I’ve been able to understand clothes and fashion better is, it’s a great way for me to express what’s happening on the inside,” she told reporters at the Oscars Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills, Calif. “So my goal with each dress that I’ve worn has just been to try and reflect what my soul looks like, which is far more complicated than any dress ever can be.”
