Usually known for her witty personality and quirky roles, Anna Kendrick opted to display her stylish side at an event in Beverly Hills.

The Pitch Perfect star was one of a number of Hollywood celebrities to dazzle at the 2014 Unicef Ball on Tuesday evening (January 14th).

Wearing a floor-length, strapless red gown with diamond lace cut-outs around the stomach area, Anna's look was one of the more impressive of the evening.

She decided to accessorize with a simple pair of studded earrings, a chunky ring on her left hand and a simple black clutch.

With all the attention on her dress, Anna obviously thought it best to keep things simple in terms of make-up - opting for nude coloured lips and a sultry smokey eye look.

The 28-year-old recently returned to the US from Britain where she was shooting Into the Woods, a film that stars Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Chris Pine.

Also at the event on Tuesday was Golden Globe winner Michael Douglas and his Behind the Candelabra co-star Matt Damon.

The pair, who wore similar black suits, were both presented with humanitarian awards for their charitable work over the years.

Douglas has been a United Nations Messenger of Peace since 1998, while Damon has been praised for his efforts through his organisation Water.org, which attempts to combat the global water crisis.

Meanwhile, action star Sylvester Stallone attended the event wearing a blue pin-striped suit, with his wife Jennifer opting for a simple black gown.

Stallone has been on a press tour in recent weeks promoting his new movie Grudge Match alongside his co-star Robert De Niro.

The film sees the pair take on the roles of a couple of retired boxers who decide to get back into the ring for one last fight.

According to the charity's website: "The UNICEF Ball is one of the most notable black-tie galas in Los Angeles, bringing together philanthropists, celebrities and community leaders to support UNICEF’s mission of saving the lives of children."
