Two premieres, two very different dresses, one designer.
Lily Collins continued on with the promotion trail for her movie “Abduction” with co-star Taylor Lautner when they premiered the film in Paris (it’s called “Secret Identity” there!). Taylor and Lily went back to their fashion comfort-zone for this appearance, he brought back the salesman tie and she went for vintage housewife cocktail chic.
Lily wore a 1950’s inspired navy blue organza cocktail dress — from the Fall 2007 haute couture collection by Chanel, with a split peplum waist and tuxedo style bodice and point lapel halter neck. Black sequin embellishments are embroidered from the bodice to the lower back of the dress as well as on the trim of the dress. A sequined bow sits at the center of the bodice with two others on each side of the peplum waist.
While the dress itself is an interesting choice, I felt like it was “too old” for Lily and she appeared as if she were wearing a costume. Was it raining in Paris or was she going for a ‘wet look’ up-‘do?
I really like her nail polish (and it matches the dress), and her makeup was done well…but that’s about it.
Lily wore Loree Rodkin stud earrings and black patent “Lady Peep” platform pumps by Christian Louboutin.
