Ms. Ritter grabbed our attention with an impressive palette of red carpet outfits, ranging from a casual Donna Karan dress paired with Fiorentini and Baker Buckle Boots ($485) for a TV Guide event to the elegant Nanette Lepore dress and shoes she donned earlier this month at the premiere of her latest film, 27 Dresses. The ing√©nue is also adept at accessorizing, as she showed at the two-year anniversary party for Tao by upgrading her simple black dress with a bright red Prada belt and Melissa Night Flats ($72) in a corresponding shade. Ritter is also savvy at recycling her favorite pieces; she mixed her beloved boots with a lovely Hollie Ten dress for an event at the Peninsula Hotel just last month. Don¬'t assume Ritter¬'s style is a recent invention though, for her outfits have been on-point for quite some time. Just take a gander at the frilly green H&M frock Ritter wore to a documentary premiere back in 2006 as an example.
Career-wise, Ritter has bloomed from her early days on Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls to the big screen. She has a movie in theaters now (27 Dresses) and a handful more in production, including the much-anticipated Confessions of a Shopaholic. While we¬'re pleased that Ritter¬'s career is taking off, it delights us even more to anticipate her forthcoming outfits as her personal style continues to grow. ¬--JESSICA AMENTO
