Laura Vandervoot Is Your New Sci-Fi Style Star — Here's How To Dress Just Like The 'Bitten' Actress
If you're a science fiction fan or happened to catch the ill-fated Canadian series Instant Star back in 2004, chances are you recognize Laura Vandervoort. After appearing in a number of cancelled television shows ranging from Smallville to V, Vandervoort is back in the public eye thanks to a little television series called Bitten, which shares more than a few commonalities with The Vampire Diaries.
Regardless of her attachment to more sci-fi and teen drama shows than I realized existed on Canadian television, Vandervoort has a unique way of making a statement on the red carpet. You will rarely catch the actress in an ensemble which is less than eye-catching, exquisitely fitted, and just a bit provocative. For her latest red carpet moment at the MuchMusic Video Awards, Vandervoort chose yet another challenging ensemble which she somehow managed to pull off with aplomb. The actress selected a pastel blue sequined minidress by the brand The 2nd Skin, and paired the look with pointy toe metallic heels, a chic clutch, and an understated smoky eye. The look may have failed on a lesser celebrity powerhouse, but on Vandervoort, it was simply stunning. Read on to emulate Vandervoort's chic red carpet style.
1. LONG-SLEEVED COLLARED DRESS
Vandervoort's look begins with a dazzling blue dress by The 2nd Skin, but a simple, pastel, collared chiffon dress with a touch of sparkle at the neckline will have just as much impact. Try ASOS's Embellished Collar Pleat Skater Dress for a similar look.
2. METALLIC POINTY-TOE PUMPS
The ultra-feminine look requires a pair of delicate heels to keep the ensemble elegant. Try J.Crew's Valentina Mirror Metallic Pumps to add chic polish like Vandervoort's.
3. BOX CLUTCH
An antique-inspired crochet clutch is ideal for this sweet ensemble. Anthropologie's Stitched Blooms Box Clutch is just large enough for all of your essentials; plus, the delicate floral pattern adds extra interest to your ensemble.
4. OVERSIZED COCKTAIL RING
Though an elegant ensemble like this one requires few accessories, a brilliant cocktail ring like Vandervoort's will add just the right amount of sparkle. Ariella Collection's Pavé Ring will complement any ladylike look perfectly.
