Anna Kendrick hits a fashion high note as she collects award for selling one million copies of her music single Cups
She blew audiences away with her folksy singing voice in the 2012 film Pitch Perfect.
So much so that Anna Kendrick’s rendition of a 1937 old-time song in the film has turned her into somewhat of a pop star.
The 27-year-old looked fresh-faced in a nude-coloured dress as she collected an award from iHeartRadio for selling one million copies of her single Cups in New York on Friday.
The Oscar-nominated actress looked gorgeous in the flouncy dress, which nipped in at the waist and featured a thin-strapped halter neck.
Anna added an unusual touch with dark brown brogues that added a schoolgirl touch to the outfit.
She wore her red hair in loose waves over her shoulders and kept her makeup natural, enhancing her porcelain complexion with a rosy pink lipstick.

Huge honour: Anna smiled proudly as she held up her award commemorating her phenomenal single sales
Anna was shown accepting the award for her single, which is a cover of Lulu and the Lampshades’ song Cups (You’re Gonna Miss Me), a rendition of a 1937 folk song.
The star sings the song in the hit movie Pitch Perfect, which sees her play Beca, a freshman at Barden University, who is cajoled into joining an all-girls’ a cappella singing group.
Anna performs the song when she auditions to join the group, and she is seen onstage using just a plastic cup and the stage floor as percussion.
Kendrick is no stranger to musical performances. Her first acting role was as Dinah in the Broadway musical High Society in 1998 when she was 12.
The performance won her a Theatre World Award, a Drama Desk Award, and Tony Award nominations, making her the third-youngest Tony Award nominee.
Kendrick went on to appear in a number of other theater productions, including the musical A Little Night Music, before making her film debut in the 2003 musical comedy Camp.
