Holy hell — the actress just wore couture to the beach. Insert jaw drop here.

While thoughts of couture usually conjure extravagant formality, the movie star's dusty blue, floral-adorned dress somehow managed to look casual enough to present an award at a Saturday morning event. 

Elsa Schiaparelli is best known as Coco Chanel's rival, and was also a fame film costume designer, dressing the likes of Mae West and Zsa Zsa Gabor in their heyday. The brand, which originally launched in Paris in 1930, was revived by Tod's chairman Diego Della Valle in 2013.
