Love It or Hate It? Lily Collins at the Paris ‘Mirror Mirror’ Premiere
Lily Collins pulled out a show-stopper of a Zac Posen gown at the Paris ‘Mirror Mirror’ premiere. Is it a surprise hit, or a massive miss?
New Snow White flick Mirror Mirror may be getting some mixed review, but its star is dazzling the crowds all the same! At the movie’s Paris premiere, Lily Collins pulled out a show-stopping Zac Posen number. A pre-fall mermaid gown in a daring brocade, it’s certainly a conversation piece; she accented it with loose, flowing locks and a bold red lip color. Love it or hate it?
Personally, I kind of love it. The dress’s rich colors, her dark hair, and her red lips contrast beautifully with her porcelain skin, and she’s definitely got the personality to carry it. With dresses like this, however, there can be a danger of it wearing you, rather than you wearing it, and some critics feel pretty strongly that this is what’s going on here. To be sure, it IS a lot of dress, and as the Hollywood Reporter notes, most runway models are 5’10” or taller. Lily is only 5’5”, so there’s some question as to whether she’s too petite to pull off this look.
Just for kicks, here’s the dress she wore to Mirror Mirror’s LA premiere:
The Dolce & Gabbana black and gold lace prom dress, pinned-up hair, and ankle-strap shoes create a girlish look that’s quite different from the dramatic one she went for in Paris.
Tell us: Honestly, Lily Collins would probably look stunning in a paper bag, so asking which look you prefer might be a bit of a moot point… but that said, which look do you prefer: Flirty LA princess or grown-up Parisian vixen?
