Frugal Fashion: 'Margaret' star Krysten Ritter at the Fox Television Distribution bash

June 1, 2011 |  7:00 am

KristenritterAt the end of Fox TV's week-long screening extravaganza for foreign buyers in L.A., there was only one thing to do: throw an über bash at the Fox lot in Century City. Television stars and execs flooded the red carpet, and among the most stylish was the raven-haired actress Krysten Ritter.

You may remember her as the cheeky but charming Patty in the film "She's Out of My League" or as a regular on the Starz series "Gravity." She's also starring in the upcoming drama "Margaret" alongside Hollywood bigwigs Matt Damon, Anna Paquin and Mark Ruffalo.

The budding television star and lead singer of the indie band Ex Vivian is always striking, with a look that is distinctly rockabilly glam. Her darker-than-night  and signature red lips help define her ultra-feminine sense of style. 

For the big party, Ritter chose a body-conscious, floral print minidress by MinkPink, bright coral-colored clutch bag by Sedgwick and nude heels by Loeffler Randall. The dress evokes that feeling fashionistas get every summer when they switch out their winter neutrals for eye-popping colors. Ritter's floral-print dress is a great, comfortable option for a summer party.

For a similar floral print dress, try the Asos cut-out dress for $59.99 in a fun and flirty red floral print and cut-out neck design, the floral print pencil dress, also from Asos for $36.93 or the Insight Inbetween Days dress for $59.50 from


For an extra pop of color get the Lorraine slim clutch by Guess for $30 or the Mundi Kylie wristlet from Kohl's for $28 for a more casual look.


Strap on any pair of nude or black heels and you're ready for summer.

Happy shopping!
