Sci-fi fans get ready! The Martian, based on the 2011 novel of the same name, is out in cinemas now. And having had a look at the supporting cast list, which includes KristinWiig, Kate Mara and Jessica Chastain, I can tell you that the acting skills on display in this movie will be… (wait for it) out of this world!
To celebrate the film’s release, I’ve been having a look through some of the leading ladies’ best red carpet looks. Their shared love of lace dresses certainly is a far cry from astronaut uniforms, but when you look like these girls, you could probably look good in anything.
Here are some of my favourite looks and tips on how you can recreate them on a budget:
Saturday Night Live funny girl Kristin Wiig is most often seen wearing whatever ridiculous costume is needed for her hilarious comedy sketches. But wow, can she pull off a classy long evening dress when she wants to! I love the whimsical vintage look of Kristin’s nude-coloured dress.
To steal her look, go with this South Lace Cold Shoulder Dress and Pointed Stiletto Metallic Court Shoe from Shoe Box. The dress has a great ‘any occasion’ look that you could alternatively wear with black tights and boots to work instead of the more formal heels.
Add some texture and volume to your hair with this BaByliss Curling Wand Pro Styler and apply some Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray to give your curls a nice, beachy look. To add some sparkle to this simple boho look, add this Oasis Long Tassel Necklace and this simple yet quirky Fleur East Hand Adornment.
Jessica Chastain’s pale skin and fiery locks makes us want to claim her as one of our own. Sadly, we cannot. However, she does give us Irish girls some serious hope. “You mean we don’t actually have to wear fake tan to look good?” That’s right, ladies. Embrace your paleness and contrast it with this Long Sleeve Bow Back Dress from Definitions. To amp things up a bit for a special occasion, add these simple and budget-friendly Shoe Box Lorraine Almond Toe Mid Heel Court Shoes and these Little Mistress Chain Earrings.
Between here latest role in The Martian and recent outings in Fantastic Four and Transcendence, Kate Mara has been making waves in the movie business and is fast becoming a darling of the sci-fi genre. When she’s not boldly going where no one has gone before, she’s rocking the red carpet with out of this world style (I’m getting good mileage from that pun today!)
For an evening-time look with just a hint of feminine lace, this Little Mistress Embellished Maxi Dress is perfect. This dress is similar to one Kate Mara wore to last year’s Emmy Awards.
Add some oomph to the girly feel of the dress with these sassy Carvela Giraffe Caged Sandal and this super-slick Joe Browns Love Heart Bag. To amp things up further, create a smoky eye look with this NYX Dream Catcher Shadow Palette and Rimmel Scandaleyes Jumbo Eyeliner.
