It's the oldest story in the book. Boy meets girl, boy and girl are famous, boy reaches ultimate celebrity status, boy and girl become couple goals. Okay, so that's not always how it goes but that is how it went for couple Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth. In 2010 they met and that same year they got married. Within a 4-year span they had a daughter, India Rose Hemsworth, and twin boys, Tristan and Sasha Hemsworth, and their careers took off in a big way.
Chris might have reached that star studded level of fame but as the saying goes - behind every great man is a great woman. Elsa hails from Madrid, Spain where she's reached her own level of fame. She eventually appeared on the cover of Maxim Magazine and went on to star in the sixth, seventh, and eight instalments from the Fast and the Furious franchise. With her husband in the limelight, you would think that Elsa would take a back seat and enjoy the ride, but that hasn't been the case; take a look at all the times she stole her husband's limelight (or Thor's thunder)!
18 Thor: Ragnarok Premiere
In October of 2017, Elsa Pataky was by her husband's (Chris Hemsworth) side for the premiere of the latest installment of the Thor franchise, Thor: Ragnarok. That same day, Chris tweeted out the seemingly unrealistic definition of the word 'Ragnarok', and it definitely made fans laugh!
“The world renowned Australian dictionary says that Ragnarok is when one partakes in rock n' roll while wearing rags”
This isn't about Chris though, this is about Elsa and her absolutely beautiful dress. She kept it extremely simple but yet it was so beautiful on her! Sometimes simplicity goes a long way in making a look come together. She wore a sleek strapless gown with a twist design with the fabric in the bust area. She chose to keep it sleek with a thin choker-like necklace, some diamond bracelets, and simple rings.
17 2015 Vacation Premiere
Blush is one of those colors that can either look really nice on someone or really horrible, especially depending what the shade of blush turns out to be. Sometimes blush looks way too pink or way too dull.
Not only is this shade of blush absolutely adorable but Elsa absolutely rocks it!
In the summer of 2015, Elsa rocked this cute mini-dress number paired with some blush open toe heels and a light golden clutch. The thing that makes this dress so adorable and feminine is the lace floral detailing throughout the entirety of the dress. We also love the satin sash that gives this dress definition and doesn't make it look like she's wearing a lace sack.
16 Captain America Premiere
This day might have been all about Captain America, Chris Evans, but it was Elsa Pataky who was radiating on the red and white striped carpet! At her side was her husband, Evans' Avengers co-star, rocking a simple grey suit with a white button down.
In the middle of summer in L.A., Elsa opted for this cute laced mini dress. The dress had a mock neckline that was finished off with a dainty black bow. What didn't make this dress seem too overwhelming was her decision to go with a sleek ponytail and simple makeup. As far as heels are concerned, we thought her choice was a little much but considering how cute the rest of the outfit looked, she could easily get away with it.
15 12 Strong Premiere
Talk about STUNNING! Elsa Pataky shows up to the premiere of 12 Strong, the movie she got to film alongside her husband Chris Hemsworth. In the movie the real-life married couple also play a married couple. This was the first film they shot together and Chris couldn't stop raving about working with his real-life wife, saying:
"It was great, it was like a little holiday away from the kids."
Even though this movie stars the both of them, this red carpet starred one person and that was Elsa! She wore a black cut-out dress that showed off her incredible body and it even showed off a little cleavage (but was not too much).
14 The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Premiere
Apparently we weren't the only ones who couldn't keep our eyes off of Elsa! Her husband couldn't keep his eyes off of his wife at the premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere in Los Angeles, either. Keeping a close eye, as if her bodyguard, it seemed Hemsworth couldn't look away, and neither could we.
Pataky was giving us major Marilyn Monroe vibes in this adorable knee length all white dress.
The dress showed us a pretty decent amount of skin, considering how low cut the front of the dress was. Paired with the dress, she continued her Marilyn Monroe-inspired look with red lipstick, and her loose curled blonde bob.
13 Toronto Film Festival
2013 was the year of the Miley Cyrus VMA performance, the Paula Deen "n-word" scandal, and the admission of Lance Armstrong's career-long doping. It was also the year of absolute love between Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth. Three years into their marriage, they are pictured here at the Toronto Film Festival, for the premiere of Chris' movie Rush, looking so incredibly in love.
Chris' brothers, Liam Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth, were present to support their brother but it was his wife who, once again, stole the red carpet! She looked like a dream in this white laced gown. She kept it incredibly simple with no bracelets or necklaces but decided to added a small bit of color with her long purple earrings. She finished off this clean look with her sleek, somewhat wet hairdo.
12 2017 Golden Globe Awards
I have to admit, this was probably one of my favorite outfits on this list, and it was also one of my favorites back when I was watching the red carpet event for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.
There are so many things about this whole look that make it a 10/10 and I don't even know where to begin...
This dress could've easily been way too provocative but the fact that the see through part of the dress is just at her knees makes it a complete tease, and we love it! The floral appliqué throughout the dress makes it so feminine and soft. She gives the dress the attention it deserves by not adding any flashy pieces of jewelry but a simple and thin choker necklace. She pairs the necklace with small and minimal earrings and her hair in an up-do to show off her neckline.
11 Rush Premiere In Rome
At the time no one knew it but looking back, we now know that Elsa was pregnant with twins during this premiere! If you look close enough, you can see the small bump! With the information we know now, Elsa couldn't have been more than 2-3 months pregnant at the time and there's no way we would've known it was with twins.
It wasn't until January of 2014 that the couple announced they were expecting twins, just a few months before she was due to give birth.
Being pregnant didn't stop Elsa from radiating on the red carpet looking amazing. She wore this elegant strapless red gown with vine detailing on the front. The dress was topped off with dainty jewelry including a necklace and long earrings. Elsa also opted for a more natural glow, choosing more subtle makeup and soft burgundy lipstick.
10 Rush Premiere In Los Angeles
Truth time... I'm usually not a big fan of pixie cuts. For some reason though, I'm totally okay with Elsa's hairstyle because she totally pulls it off. She has this edge to her style and look that makes it hard to ignore how great she looks no matter what haircut she has.
At her husband's premiere in London for his movie Rush, Elsa opted to put aside dresses and rock a jumpsuit instead! The black jumpsuit was tied together with a thin belt with a gold accent buckle, and sheer mesh bell sleeves. Once again, in true Elsa fashion, she opts to keep the jewelry simple with a classic and dainty necklace, hoop earrings, and a bracelet.
9 Avengers Premiere In London
Elsa might have had twin boys but this pregnancy wasn't with them. She was absolutely radiating at the 2012 premiere of The Avengers in London. One would only expect that at 8 months pregnant, she would want nothing more than to lay in bed and kick her feet up, but Elsa proves otherwise. Pregnant with their daughter India Rose, now 5, Pataky wanted nothing more than to support her husband.
She stunned in this dark green gown that displayed her baby bump front and center.
The halter neck dress was kept simple with nothing more than a thin pair of hoop earrings and an up-do ponytail look. No one can blame her for keeping it simple, after all she makes anything look amazing!
8 2014 Oscars
During the 2014 Oscars, Elsa came under fire for her growing baby bump and dress, getting negative comments thrown at her by none other than the late Joan Rivers and the rest of the cast of E!'s Fashion Police. George Kotsiopoulos chimed in, saying,
"The last thing I wanna do is rip on a pregnant woman... But it's a horrible dress on her. It doesn't look like a baby bump, it looks like a beer belly"
Everyone has their opinion. But at the end of the day, the fact is that she was extremely pregnant with twins and put on the beautiful sequinned aqua blue gown and, in our opinion, rocked it! It might have been a little unconventional and out of the box to choose this style of a gown to wear when you're that pregnant, but the effort, thought, and beauty really did shine!
7 Iron Man 3 Premiere
Not even a year after giving birth to her daughter, India Rose, Elsa was photographed hitting the red carpet with her husband by her side. She was looking great with a smile in tow and her infamous pixie cut. There might be millions of girls obsessed with Chris, but we can't keep our eyes off of Elsa.
Donning a shift dress, it wasn't your average one. It was embellished with beaded flowers throughout the dress. As always she kept it simple with her accessories, just wearing a thin necklace and studded earrings. She clung onto her burgundy velvet clutch, giving the outfit a little pop of color. She brought the whole dress together with her simple satin blush pumps matching the color of her dress.
6 In The Heart Of The Sea NYC Premiere
They might be at the premiere of In the Heart of the Sea, but it seems that Chris and Elsa continue to be in each other's hearts. The duo proved that their love is real while attending the premiere in NYC. All smiles, Elsa clings onto her husband while he wraps his arm around her. A month before, Chris gushed about his wife, and mother of three, saying:
"Once we had kids we were like, 'we're in it, this is it'. All of a sudden I had a greater appreciation for my wife, she kind of came into her own when we had kids. Watching her be a mother made me fall even more in love with her."
Elsa brought her A-game shining, literally, in a sequinned black dress with a fringe hem line and black pumps. She continued to keep things simple with her usual thin, dainty necklace, no earrings, and her hair in a tight ponytail.
5 In The Heart Of The Sea In Spain
Alright Elsa, I see you giving us flamenco dancer emoji vibes! Nothing lights up the red carpet more than actresses wearing red! Chris' movie, In the Heart of the Sea, gave Elsa and Chris an opportunity to go back to her native city of Madrid in Spain. The movie title was translated to Spanish for the premiere.
Elsa was on fire wearing the cutest fiery red strapless A-line cocktail dress with embellishments throughout the dress.
I am the biggest fan of Elsa's hair when she styles it down and natural. She also seemed to be sporting more of a tan which made her green eyes pop. She finished off the look with some simple navy blue pointed heels.
4 Oceana Ball In NYC
In April of 2013, Chris and Elsa hit the
red blue carpet for the Oceana Ball in NYC. As always they not only looked fantastic but so did their love! They were beaming on the carpet, talking about being new parents and how they make their relationship work. The main rule they have between each other: not taking a job while the other is working. On keeping the family together, Elsa says,
"You have to make an effort and try to stay together as much as you can. If we start splitting and doing other things it’s not going to last.”
For this carpet, Elsa took over wearing a low-cut silver sequinned cocktail dress. Not only did the dress dip low in the front but it definitely dipped low in the back, going as far as her lower back. She let the dress do all the talking as she paired it with a pair of silver pumps.
3 2012 GQ Men Of The Year Awards
Date night! In 2012, the new parents to a beautiful 4-month-old baby girl took the night for themselves as they attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards. 4 months postpartum looks great on Elsa as she glows on the red carpet!
It might have been the Men of the Year Awards, but this lady was made to attend this party with HER man on her arm.
Dressed in all black, there's no going wrong! She wore a black A-line cocktail dress with lace slit embellishment on the bottom half of the dress. She decided to pair the dress with a cute big black clutch with pink detailing. Finally, she added a little accent piece by wearing dangling earrings and pulled her hair back into a slick bun. Classy, elegant, and absolutely nothing wrong with this outfit.
2 2015 G'Day USA Gala
Once again, Chris and Elsa prove to be the beautiful power couple that we all know and love! They are pictured here at the G'Day Gala, an Australian gala hosted in the United States. Elsa joined her Aussie husband at the Gala sponsored by Qantas and looked stylish doing it.
Her adorable green strapless dress was one of the styles on Elsa that we've grown to love. She paired her strapless dress with a pair of simple heels that showed off her left foot tattoo. Although she's never given an explanation as to the significance of her tattoo, it reads “quod quid sumus id esse voluimus” which is a Latin phrase meaning: “that is what we have wished.”
1 2015 Foxtel Upfronts
Once again, Chris might be the superstar but here comes Elsa proving that she, too, can be the star of the carpet. For the Foxtel Upfronts, hosted in Australia, Elsa and Chris were happy to be back in Australia, Chris' native country! When speaking about Australia he says,
"We’re spending more and more time back in Australia and I definitely want the kids to grow up here and spend time here. We were in California a lot I missed it here and my wife missed it too so that was our goal to get back here."
Elsa went for a non-traditional look and donned a black jumpsuit, with a lace embellished keyhole in the neckline. Around the waist, the jumpsuit gets some definition with a lace belt. Accessorizing the outfit is a leopard print cross-body clutch. Her minimal makeup, soft beach waves, and rose gold heels are what helps keep this outfit classy.
