While comic con is more of an eccentric-costume fest, Hollywood biggies were spotted in some fabulously chic red carpet looks. Along with breakthrough news for Superman and Batman fans, Comic Con 2013 brought with it a streak of risky fashion choices, playful patterns and bright colours. Here is a round-up of our favourite picks:

Chris Evans 

Captain America has totally turned the heat on keeping in line with his alter-ego, the Torch. The actor looks sizzling hot in a dark navy v-necked cardigan paired with a plain white tee. Since Minka is cool with Chris kissing Scarlett for his film, we are sure she wouldn’t mind a few more waiting in line for this suave, young heart-throb.

Zoe Saldana 

The Star Trek actor and a former model, Zoe Saldana, surely knows how to bring sexy back! She is always dressed to perfection at the red carpet and is never afraid of experimenting. Keeping on trend, the fashionista rocked a Balmain denim jumpsuit at the event and a pair of Christian Louboutin black peep-toes. We are so digging the sweetheart neckline and the gold chain-link straps of the jumpsuit.

Emily Blunt 

Brit girl Emily looked chic in this funky pink and blue sheath dress by Wes Gordon, adding an extra pop of colour with those bright fuchsia sandals by Rupert Sanderson. While Emily is always an epitome of grace and poise on the red carpet, we love how she is taking a risk with colours and showing off her wild side.

Josh Dallas 

Once Upon A Time’s Prince Charming truly charmed us at Comic Con’s red carpet with his nautical-inspired look. The too-sexy-to-be-true actor has us weak in the knees in a pair of crisp white pants, navy fitted blazer and sailor shoes sans socks! The structured ensemble fits his chiseled body well.

Scarlett Johansson

The Black Widow from Avengers was far from being the dull and saddened secret agent. Rather she looked like a colourful bouquet of flowers. Scarlett looked fresh and demure in a vivid Versace floral printed midi dress and that drool-worthy pair of Jimmy Choo mules. Though her well-defined eyes add a sexy touch, we really wish she had blow-dried her hair properly with some volume at the crown.

Tom Cruise

If you were born in the late 80s then Tom Cruise was definitely your first love and at the Comic Con event he shows just how much you can’t avoid falling for him even after so many years. Although the Mission Impossible star kept it simple and casual in a blue sweatshirt and a pair of jeans, it’s just his refined and dapper looks that always make him stand out at any red carpet.

Emiia Clarke

The Comic Con convention was more of a bodycon convention with a number of actors sporting a variety of bodycon knee-length dresses. The Game of Thrones actor Emilia Clarke also looked ravishing in a blood-red peek-a-boo bodycon dress by Christopher Kane Resort. We are so digging those red pointy pumps and kohl-rimmed eyes.
