Brains, beauty, and a sense of humor are a rare combination to locate in Hollywood, but industry veteran Anna Faris possesses all three, and in a unique league of her own to boot. The actress embraces self deprecation when it garners belly laughs, and doesn't let her blond bombshell aesthetic stand in the way of her sharp wit. This rare trifecta has gained Faris a serious foothold in Hollywood, securing her a steady stream of feature roles for over ten years.
Faris's most recent real-life roles as a wife and mother have only contributed to her exuberant style. The actress continues to rock strapless silhouettes, sky-high heels, and sleek blowouts for every red carpet occasion. In fact, her audience and fans alike would never be able to guess that Faris has a two-year-old toddler at home based on her alluring ensembles and pristine appearance. For her husband Chris Pratt's premiere of Guardians of The Galaxy in Hollywood, Faris brought out her sartorial A-game in a Paule Ka mini and Stuart Weitzman sandals. While the majority of her fan base and may not have a Hollywood stylist on speed dial, here are the four essentials needed to capture Faris's chic cocktail look.
1. WHITE STRAPLESS COCKTAIL DRESS
The first step to rocking Faris's chic look is a white strapless cocktail dress with detailing at the bust. Try Black Halo's Lena Mini Dress for a similar effect.
2. METALLIC OR WHITE STRAPPY SANDALS
Stuart Weitzman's "Nudist" Sandals are everywhere this summer, most significantly adorning the feet of Hollywood's finest. However, at nearly $400 a pair, they're not the thriftiest of expenditures. Get a similar look with Steven by Steve Madden's Rykie Heels in a metallic shade.
3. OVERSIZED STUD EARRINGS
Draw focus to your face with a pair of oversized studs like Kate Spade New York's Cluster Earrings.
4. ONE IMMENSELY ATTRACTIVE DATE (OR THE NEXT BEST THING)
If your favorite date isn't available to accessorize your gorgeous ensemble at the last minute, try the next best thing: a copy of Parks and Recreation 's DVD set. Even though Chris Pratt can't be yours, you can still admire his comedic stylings.
