Amanda Seyfried Mean Girls Premiere

You know the story: New star, new movie, no stylist. In a brown Moschino dress at the 2004 premiere of Mean Girls, Seyfried revealed more than the fact that she hadn’t yet hired a glam squad.

Amanda Seyfried Mean Girls

Seyfried took a cue from her Mean Girls wardrobe (and teens across America) for the Teen People Annual Young Hollywood Party in 2005. In a casual black top, denim mini skirt, and strappy sandals, the actress proved the old adage: Stars—they’re just like us.

Amanda Seyfried Big Love

In case you forgot Seyfried’s next cinematic undertaking, this roomy muted green dress should remind you. With wavy tresses and a bare face at the Starter for 10 premiere in 2007, the star epitomized Big Love-chic.

Amanda Seyfried Mamma Mia

Seyfried channeled the prom look of Romy and Michelle’s dreams in emerald green Miu Miu at the 2008 premiere of Mamma Mia. Accessorizing her flirty dress with bouncy curls and simple accessories, Seyfried was finally worth watching on the red carpet.

Amanda Seyfried 2009 Oscars

Two steps forward, one step back. For the 2009 Academy Awards, Seyfried sported a burnt orange Valentino dress, made up of the offensive combination of ruching, spaghetti straps (remember those?), a long wrapping hemline, and a giant bow. Caged sandals and a dark floral necklace were the last nail in the coffin for this doomed look.

Amanda Seyfried 2010 Oscars

Seyfried returned to the Oscars in 2010 with a vengeance. From her Swarovski-covered Armani Prive gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels to her flawless hair and makeup, Seyfried got it right.

At the In Time UK premiere in 2011, Seyfried looked sharp in a satin blue suit by H&M. The star was smart to keep the look simple with a black button-front shirt, also by H&M, and black Sergio Rossi shoes. This was only the first of many short suit looks for Seyfried—but hey, if a leggy look works, it works.

Amanda Seyfried Les Miserables Premiere

Seyfried served some welcome red carpet drama at the New York premiere of Les Miserables in 2012. From her braided bun and dark eyes to her intricate Alexander McQueen gown, the star not only stole the red carpet—she intimidated it.

Amanda Seyfried Lovelace

At the Lovelace premiere in August 2013, Seyfried looked like a full-on LA cool girl in a textured Gucci mini dress and sky-high Givenchy sandals. Pulled-back hair, a smoky eye, and a movie star smile left little need for excessive accessories.

Amanda Seyfried Lovelace

Seyfried went appropriately retro for a special Lovelace screening in late 2013. The perfectly revealing (and purposefully sheer) buttoned-up Gucci dress and Givenchy sandals proved she has the makings of a bonafied style star.
