Anna Kendrick & the Bellas at the ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ premiere: aca-mazing?


Here are some photos from Friday night’s LA premiere of Pitch Perfect 2. It comes out on Friday! I’m actually looking forward to it. I’m probably going to see it in the theater because I want to support Elizabeth Banks as a director/producer. Plus, the first one was a great story about girls. I’m actually a little bit weirded out by the fact that they did a HUGE premiere on a Friday night in LA. Usually, they’ll save the premiere for a weekday because they’ll get more coverage. So I don’t know what this means.

As for fashion… Anna Kendrick looked great in this Stella McCartney. I actually can’t believe it’s Stella! It works on her. Her hair game is on point too, very pretty.


Elizabeth Banks, the director, producer and costar. I love her. Her ensemble is Marchesa, strangely enough. I don’t hate it? How is that possible?


Rebel Wilson in Marina Rinaldi. The color is pretty but just say no to peplums!


Alexis Knapp, otherwise known as that woman who hooked up with Ryan Phillippe and had his baby. She’s also a returning cast member and I LOVED her in the first one (“He’s a hunter” is one of my favorite lines). This dress though… I don’t love it. It’s Lorena Sarbu.


Brittany Snow was there with her boyfriend Tyler Hoechilin. They are such a cute couple, it’s crazy. She wore a dress by Georges Chakra. Pretty.


Anna Camp wore Phillip Plien. I feel like the cut-outs aren’t really working here, right? I worry about Anna Camp – she keeps getting written out of good TV shows and it feels like she hasn’t had that critical-mass moment of “Oh, that’s Anna Camp, I love her!”


Hailee Steinfeld is the new Barton Bella for the sequel. I think she’s adorable, but this dress is not. She’s wearing Dolce & Gabbana. It’s too fussy for someone her age!

    That’s the prettiest I’ve ever seen Anna K. She looks beautiful – love the dress on her and love her hair. Everyone else looks nice, too. I don’t love Hailee’s dress, but she’s a lovely girl.

  2. De says:

    I saw it the other day and actually disliked it. Which is a shame, as I loved the first one.

    *SPOILER* I found it had way too much Rebel Wilson, and I say that as a fellow Australian.

    • MissC says:

      This has been my worry. I could tell by the movie trailer that she had the most prominent roll. I am going to go see it no matter what but I have a feeling I will be disappointed. I really loved the first movie.

    • Alex says:

      I found the movie tried too hard. Too much of Rebel, Bumper and Chloe (who should have been regulated to a smaller role like Anna). Plus I would’ve done without the new Bella whose only lines were offensive racial jokes
      The music was way better this time around

  3. Lucy2 says:

    I love Anna Kendrick’s whole look here. Perfect!

    • Sos101 says:

      But is the base of her dress blue or purple? I guess it’s a lighting thing that the bottom half looks different in each photo. Either way,great look!

  4. Babadook says:

    I’m all over that look if Hailee Steinfelds skirt were shorter.

    Also I really want this to be good but: Just say no to sequels!

  5. Lexie says:

    Am I crazy or does Anna Kendrick’s nose look slightly… streamlined. I’m crazy, right?

    • katP says:

      I see it, either subtle nose job or really good contouring makeup?

      • Veronica says:

        I think it may be contouring. You can see where the shadow extends up into her eye area. There’s also the fact that press release photos are often photoshopped before they’re released for purchase…

  6. Beth says:

    I never really comment on the fashion side of things, but I actually think Steinfeld’s dress would be cute if the skirt were shortened above the knees.

  7. Brittney B says:

    WOW. Anna is jaw-dropping. That dress looks like it was made for her. She seems to have a sultry stare that she doesn’t usually have, too… she knows she looks good.

  8. LAK says:

    Anna Camp is one of those actresses who is immediately familiar in so many things and yet I couldn’t tell you what she was in……

  9. Cali says:

    I always remember Anna Camp for her role in True Blood. She was hilarious in that campy part.

    Alexis looks so much better with her hair a little lighter and/or when it’s a little redder. That dress is cute but could’ve been better. I wonder how things have been going in the case of the fire in her apartment. I feel so bad for her. She stopped posting on social media after it happened. Seems like she can’t catch a break. :(

    Love Anna and her look.

    I’m sad to hear the movie is Rebel-centered. I like her but in smaller doses in an ensemble.

    • Hautie says:

      “I always remember Anna Camp for her role in True Blood. She was hilarious in that campy part…..”

      Camp was so funny in True Blood. She had that character done to perfection.

      I just saw the behind the scene’s show for Pitch 2 on HBO. And I love how they are using her in this new film.

      I like Rebel in small doses too. So I am hoping that most of her time is spent with Bumper. Whom I loved. He was just so perfectly slime-y in the first film.

      • FLORC says:

        How Rebel was in PP was great. Each character was subtle, but detailed in story support. Like how she needed time away from her many boyfriends. If they ran with that joke into more detail it would have been too much.

        I like her, but her character can’t carry that film.

      • Katenotkatie says:

        Anna Camp was also on the first season of The Mindy Project, then she suddenly disappeared (as did the rest of Mindy Lahiri’s female friends from that season). And a few episodes of Mad Men- season 4, maybe?

        Anna Kendrick looks fab. Seriously gorgeous.

    • is that why knapp went cold on social media?
      i wondered why the long silence
      i like the darker hair, the blonde washes her out
      i noticed she had been all but pushed out promotions and read
      a review about the PP2 that said she was barely in it.
      I’m guessing E Banks wanted her pushed to the side
      but yes i liked her character too
      what caused the fire anyway?
      never heard?
      Anna K definite nose job
      the fact that rebel already confirmed she’s in for 3rd movie and only her
      would be a sign EB likes women who don’t overshadow her pretty (a knapp)

      • Cali says:

        The reports said she left a candle burning when she wasn’t home and her condo caught fire. There haven’t been any updates since then that I’ve seen or could find.

  10. The New Classic says:

    I love Rebel! I had noticed that the ads running for this movie seemed to focus a lot on Rebel but I thought I was imagining things. Knowing it’s more Rebel-centric actually makes me wanna go see it more.

  11. FishBeard says:

    Hailee has become such a beautiful young woman, I don’t even mind the dress. All of them look great.

  12. Lucy says:

    Can’t wait to see it!!! It’s been getting great reviews, yayyy!!!

  13. Tig says:

    Anna looks good in that color, but not a big fan of cutouts. Will definitely go see it in a theater- remember, support women directors!!

  14. Samigirl says:

    Anna C’s contouring looks awful. It makes her nose look wonky. Her makeup is way too harsh.

  15. familar says:

    Anna Camp has the worst red carpet taste.

  16. Nerdmomma says:

    I consistently hate Marchesa designs. Even Banks can’t make it work, and she looks fabulous in everything.

    I think the peplum really works with Rebel’s figure. She looks great. Yes to the peplum!

  17. Sarah says:

    Anna K looks nice but the rest are a no for me. What is that on Elizabeth Banks like a scarf with a belt? Marchesa is terrible always.

    Also I’ve never seen Pitch Perfect. It’s really good?

  18. Sopha says:

    I think you added an extra I in Tyler Hoechlin (ie Tyler Hoechilin), though I do love what that does to his last name …

  19. Naddie says:

    Anna looks beautiful in this lovely dress. All of them look great but Hailee ( pretty woman , interesting dress , but we’re not in 1700 anymore), and Anna Camp (horrible dress). Elizabeth’s beauty is underated, she’s got a perfect face.

  20. Veronica says:

    I actually don’t mind Rebel’s or Hailee’s outfits, but hot damn, did the MUA for this event need to lay off on the bronzer and contour. Everybody looks like they were dirt-blasted in the face before they hit the carpet.

  21. Malificent says:

    Kaiser doesn’t hate Stella McCartney and Marchesa — and in the same write-up? I’m now waiting to hear the thundering hooves of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse….
