This is the first time Mila has donned one of his incredible looks on the red carpet, which is something I’ve been waiting for.
Unfortunately Mila didn’t wear the ideal dress from Prabal’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection that I had in mind for her. The 28-year-old actress arrived for the 50th anniversary celebration for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in a violet guipure laced top with an attached crepe de chine purple skirt. I wish the top had been laced up more on the bodice as it was on the model, and because she’s petite, her torso looked really shortened in the look. The bungee leather belt even looks really bunched up because of the truncated fit.
Throwing those cascading locks into a ponytail, rocking a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood for PG sandals, and switching her jewel embellished clutch out for a more complimenting style would have greatly improved this look. As for her make-up — her shades-of-purple smokey eyeshadow is flawless.
I love, love, love Mila’s Elie Saab t-bar open toe platform black leather sandals from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection, but unfortunately, not with this dress.
Mila’s bag is by Killian and her “Capri” dome ring is from Pomellato.
