Best Dressed at 2012 Comic Con
Last weekend, celebrities and fan boys/girls alike fled to San Diego for the annual “nerd” fest known as Comic Con. In the last 5 years, Comic Con has transformed into the “Must Be” place for all movies and TV with large, rapid fan bases. This means a lot more panels not only containing new and (most of the time) SDCC exclusive footage, but that the normally high profile stars of these movies and TV shows appear before crowds of up to 6,000 to answer fan questions.
What does this mean for us? Well, it means that fashion is making a bigger presence at Comic Con and we’ve compiled the looks we like the most. SDCC panels kicked off with “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 2″ in Hall H, so its fitting that our first look is from Breaking Dawn star Ashley Greene aka ‘Alice Cullen’. Ashley, making her second SDCC appearance (she last attended in 2009 for New Moon) wore a classic yet chic cream dress and brown heels by Michael Kors.
Greene’s Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart also makes our list. While Kristen has been on a whirlwind
fashion press tour for her lastest film Snow White and the Huntsman, it seems Kristen went a bit more funky/casual for her lastest (and last) Comic Con panel. This time around, Kristen paired a bright neon and polka-dot BCBG Max Azria skrit with a Fluxus tee-shirt. The one bit of “controversy” surrounding this look is that instead of pair of wedges or heels, Stewart went with a pair of Barbara Bui sneakers. If this were ANY other event, the sneakers would have been a fashion fail, but Comic Con is the one place where Stewart’s funky style choice worked for her.
Another SDCC regular is Lea Michele of “Glee”, after a quick scare of thinking GLEE would be missing from the schedule, FOX quickly confirmed that a handful of the shows stars, including Lea would be in Hall H. Lea kept her look simple this year, going with a black leather & tweed blazer with matching shorts from Stella & Jamie, a cream Bec & Bridge bodysuit, and a pair of bright red Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
Making her third appearance at Comic Con is “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev wowed us, not with her panel look, but with fabulous tangerine Jenny Packham dress that she paired with Jimmy Choo booties.
Anna Torv from “Fringe” who said a tearful goodbye to fans of her FOX show that is entering its fifth and final season looked red hot in a bright red Black Halo Jagger dress. One of our favorite red carpet actresses Emily Blunt kept her look summer chic for the Sony Pictures “Looper” panel by wearing tan Christian Dior dress paired with Sergio Rossi sandals.
