style envy: Elizabeth Banks

 With the return of 30 Rock tonight, we’re most excited to see our favorite funny girl again. Not Tina Fey or Jane Krakowski – though we love them too – but the only woman who can truly steal a scene from Alec Baldwin: Elizabeth Banks. We’ve been fans of Elizabeth since her campy debut in Wet Hot American Summer, when she showed us that she wasn’t afraid to be silly (or sloppy – remember that make out scene with Paul Rudd?) With roles in everything from the 40 Year Old Virgin to Spider Man, she’s proved herself a versatile and ever-hilarious actress – and she’s equally dynamic on the red carpet.

This girl isn’t afraid of making a statement with stunning colors or unique silhouettes. Whether in a drop-dead-gorgeous chiffon Versace or a cut-out, modern take on the flapper dress, Elizabeth always stands out in the usual sea of safe, neutral-toned shifts (usually doing so with a bright smile and a dirty joke.)

By pairing her fashion-forward choices with simple, pretty hair and makeup, she also avoids looking too over-the-top. And with the fabulous Effie Trinket as Elizabeth’s latest character inspiration, we can’t wait to see what she’ll rock on the Hunger Games tour.

Get her look: To recreate her flawlessly glowing skin, try our smooth operator™ Amazonian clay illuminating serum and shimmering powder, then top off with a swipe of gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara.

~I went to see Superbad this weekend (along with half of the population of NYC) and loved it! I was a little nervous that it would be like Knocked Up – you know – kind of funny but nothing to write home about. Well, it was more like 40 Year Old Virgin! I can’t wait until it comes out on DVD so I can constantly quote lines with everyone at work! -heather

~ I finally got to see the movie “Knocked Up” this weekend with friends, it was so funny! The director is the same guy who directed “40-Year Old Virgin”, another of my favorite movies. I definitely recommend seeing it for a good laugh! -erica
