Lily Collins in Collette Dinnigan
Poor little Lily. Stuck in Snow White mode with her style choices. We suppose it’s something of an inevitability, but we can practically guarantee Kristen Stewart’s not gonna put up with getting shoved into royal blue princess gowns for a couple of months when her Snow White movie opens.

But at least this was an attempt by someone to do an updated version of the Snow White look. And let’s face it, the only reason we make the connection to Snow White is because … well, a) because she’s playing her, but also because it’s not hard to get that sense when faced with a pretty young girl with pale skin and black hair in a bright blue dress. Short-haired blondes in white halter dresses will always get the Marilyn comparison. It’s sort of like that, only less obvious.
Anyway, it’s a cute look and the jacket does a lot of the heavy lifting here. That dress could look awfully matronly if it’s not deployed correctly. Personally, we think this would have looked a lot better with a much shorter skirt, but we’re almost ready to retire that complaint just because we’re tired of making it so often. The ladies of the RC want that mid-calf hem length right now and no matter how much we try to tell them it’s bad from the angles the average red carpet pictures are taken, none of them want to listen to us.
