Rose Byrne's Red Carpet Style
The gorgeous Rose Byrne delights us in raucous comedies like Bridesmaids and the upcoming Neighbors (in theaters everywhere May 9), and the actress channels that lighthearted approach into fashion as well. "Rose doesn't take it too seriously," says her stylist Penny Lovell. "Getting dressed up is something she can be playful with." Whether Byrne is ditching a gown for a sleek jumpsuit or showing a sliver of skin in a cropped top, she knows how to bring the fun.
When it comes to Byrne's looks on the red carpet, our top picks include a sheer-paneled Erdem floral dress she wore to a premiere, a so-chic Elie Saab Haute Couture embroidered wool jumpsuit the actress donned for the 2012 SAG Awards, and a water-inspired print dress by Aussie Dion Lee she chose for an appearance in her hometown of Sydney. What do we deem her number one style moment? The show-stopping blush pink Calvin Klein Collection gown Byrne wore to the 2013 Emmy Awards.

In her hometown of Sydney, she chose a dress with a water-inspired print by Aussie Dion Lee. "Rose has an adventurous style that always stays polished," said Lee.
In Elie Saab Haute Couture, 2012
"Rose said, 'What do you think about me wearing pants?'" says her stylist Penny Lovell of the embroidered wool jumpsuit Byrne wore to the SAG Awards, where Bridesmaids was nominated for best cast. "Rose throws me ideas and I translate them."
In Erdem, 2013
The sheer panels on this Erdem creation added a twist to her otherwise feminine look at a screening of I Give It a Year. "When she goes girlie, we like it to have a tougher element too," said Lovell. "I think the balance of an outfit is really important to her."
In Valentino, 2013
It took just two hours to quickly tailor this dreamy silk dress (a last-minute pick) before the SAG Awards, but the choice made Byrne stand out at the ceremony. "I think I'm the only one in a colorful dress!" she told InStyle.com.
In Jonathan Saunders, 2013
The actress selected a velvet flocked cocktail dress for a magazine awards event in N.Y.C.
In Lanvin, 2013

In Chanel, 2012
"The '60s appeal of this lambskin Chanel shift works with her mod bob and bangs," said Lovell. Iridescent tulle trim and patent leather Brian Atwood heels delivered some dazzle.
In Vivienne Westwood, 2012
"I like Vivienne Westwood because her designs are avant-garde," said Byrne of the gown she wore as an Oscar presenter. The stunner, featuring around 130,000 sequins, was the first dress she'd tried on.
In Prabal Gurung, 2011
On the way to the Bridesmaids première, the star got a text saying the red carpet was pink. "Rose just started laughing about the coincidence," says Lovell. A red Kotur clutch "kept everything a little unexpected."
