As the face of Cover Girl, Drew Barrymore attended the cosmetic giant’s 50th Anniversary bash in Los Angeles this week. The event gathered the brand’s current and former celebrity spokeswomen to celebrate the occasion, but it was Barrymore who made a splash in a vibrant citrus-hued Jil Sander frock. The bold gown boasted a unique silhouette that featured a gathered hem at the knees, a favourite style from the designer’s spring ’11 show that featured a slew of sleek uber-minimalist designs. While the burst of intense orange and unusual shape isn’t for everyone, we commend Drew for opting for such a daring dress. The tantalizing tangerine number was a brave choice and a refreshing change from the sea of sequin minis that seem to be a mainstay on the red carpet lately.
