There aren’t many starlets who can step in for fashion darling Blake Lively, but from the moment Rebecca Hall took the spotlight for her absent The Town costar at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month, it was love at first sight. Those sleeves! That neckline! The 28-year-old English actress, who has made former premiere turns alongside style veterans Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, sparkled in an eye-catching blue Vionnet gown for the Venice premiere. Then, just days later, Rebecca painted the Toronto Film Festival red, sizzling in all the right places with a bold, black-trimmed Yves Saint Laurent design. And the cherry on top of her chic premiere week? A candy apple red-and-hot pink Bottega Veneta frock–a playful pick for the film’s American premiere on Tuesday at director and co-star Ben Affleck‘s beloved Fenway Park in Boston. With The Town coming in at number one at the box office this weekend, as well as generating strong Oscars buzz, this definitely won’t be the last we see of this fashionista on the rise on the red carpet. Tell us: Do you think Rebecca Hall is style star in the making? –Christie LaRusso
