Lily Collins in Dolce & Gabbana

Posted on March 19, 2012

Before we slip into our bitchpants for the day and proceed to rip apart a bunch of celebrity outfits, let’s all play nice for a moment and look at a pretty girl in a pretty dress, looking pretty.

Lily Collins attends the premiere of “Mirror Mirror” in LA in a Dolce & Gabbana dress.




Okay, break time’s over. Let’s go find some starlet and tell her how awful her shoe choice was.

  • That’s damn near a werq!   She looks lovely, truly. Top to toe.

    • EveEve

      Rose could take a lesson.

  • Lilyana_F

    Absolutely adorable!

  • sarahofalessergod

    Very cute.  Those strands of hair hanging near her face set my OCD on edge, but this is a suitably charming look.

  • MilaXX

    Very pretty. I  wish the points on the top weren’t quite so pointy, but very minor quibble. She looks cute.

  • siriuslover

    I think she looks really cute. I’m usually not a huge fan of D&G, but this is very pretty.

  • Lilithcat

    “You have such a pretty face!  Why don’t you get your hair out of your eyes?”

    Okay, now that I’ve got my mother out of my system  .  .  .   Love the dress!

    tell her how awful her shoe choice was.

    I admit to being surprised that you did not call her out on the ankle straps.

    • jenno1013

      There’s no rule that ankle straps are always bad.  They work here, I think because of the length of the skirt.

  • Michaela Tuckova

    I’m being absolutely serious here: is it just my monitor, or is the shade of her skin off and coming off as unhealthy? Did they have horrible lightning at the venue? Or is it just the shades of her dress not working with her skin tone? Also, again, is that five o’clock shadow on her upper lip or just me? Not that I wouldn’t sympathize with the former, I get it within half an hour of waxing.

    Also, I’m not a fan of the hair but that is one mighty cute dress.Hmph. Apparently I’m incapable of playing nice on a Monday.

    • NCDFan

      I think she’s just naturally pale and hasn’t got a fake tan. Her makeup is matched to her skin tone and appears to have very little (if any) bronzer or blush used which also makes her look pale. That may have been calculated since the dress appears to be made of spiderwebs.

    • Elizabeth Wiggs Maas

      Okay, I didn’t want to say anything, but I saw the SAME upper-lip shadow! She looks stunning IMO, but I do get just a tinge of mustache. I think it must be something about the light. Thanks for being mean for me. 🙂

    • HazellC

      I think they’ve deliberately chosen her dress in a colour that makes her look paler, as she’s promoting a movie in which she plays Snow White.  It looks perfectly healthy to me.

  • nannypoo

    I like the print and the bodice, but I am not a fan of the big fat ballerina skirt.

  • serenitynow02

    Yup pretty, pretty. But I do want to get out my scissors and needle and round off those points on the bodice.

    •  I don’t mind the points, although I can how they’d bug. I’m just glad the bodice fits instead of jutting out for a good foot and a half.

      I have to agree with nannypoo (above). The skirt’s really wide, certainly wider than I like. But the dress is gorgeous and she looks lovely wearing it.

  • Little_Olive

    Disagree because of the hair and makeup. Me no likey. 
     Doesn’t she look like Zooey D’s little sister?

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Great dress!

  • kelsita421

    so pretty! 

  • SewingSiren

    Stunningly beautiful. Age appropriate. Pitch perfect in every detail. She should order one in every color.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Adorable! Love the black and “tarnished” silver lace. Haven’t been a fan of D & G for awhile but because of Lily it looks good. When I initially saw the trailers I thought of young Jennifer Connelly.

    •  That’s exactly what I thought–a young Jennifer Connelly.  Spitting image.

  • Judy_J

    I think the dress is wearing her.  It’s a pretty dress.

  • SapphoPoet

    Very pretty. 

  • Ms_Flyover

    Ok, I’ll agree this is pretty.   But if she dresses like Snow White for every premier, I’ll be disappointed if you don’t take her to task.

  • alyce1213

    Too much dress, top and bottom.  It’s very pretty in a way, and pretty drab in another.

  • WERQ those eyebrows, girl!

  • AuntieAnonny

    Too poofy.

  • Very very pretty. The movie looks horrific, but at least she looks good!

    • It looks like a clusterfuck of the highest order. Just watching the commercials makes me feel embarrassed for everyone involved.

  • Charming. Thanks.

  • poggi

    She looks great, especially in a full length view.  Then the whole thing comes together.  The hair, skirt and shoes seem to balance out to pleasing proportions.  

  • janetjb

    Thanks!  I always can use some pretty on Monday mornings.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    She’s adorable.  Phil Collins is doing his best to atone for his crimes against music.  Billy Ray Cyrus on the other hand, is not.

  • BrooklynBomber

    What I like about this is that it’s such an odd color. What is it? Silver-gray-black? Whatever it is, I like how unexpected it is with the design.

  • Game on, Zooey Deschanel!

  • CQAussie

    Let’s start with this starlet.  Sorry Ms. Collins – your shoes are all wrong for this dress, which is very pretty and so are you!  Kisses.

  • CurbGirl

    Cute, I can hear the petticoats!

  • boweryboy

    Didn’t some one else recently wear this dress or something close to it?

    Don’t like the bump-it on the back of her head. Otherwise she looks nice.

    • SewingSiren

      Chloe Moretz wore a similar D and G gown in beige to the Hugo premiere and Hailee Steinfeld wore a similar white gown 
      ( thought not D & G) to the 2011 Oscars. I’d imagine that one of (or both ) of the Fannings have worn a similar one too .

  • rkdgal

    How on earth can LiLo be considered for a Liz Taylor biopic while Lily Collins’ face exists? Ms. Collins seems like the obvs choice to me…

    • crackineggs

       I had to go back and look at her, but you’re absolutely right.  She would be awesome.

  • crackineggs

    Just breathtaking.

  • Presumptuous Insect

    Very cute. Unfortunately for her, Mirror, Mirror looks like it is going to bomb.

  • drdirection

    she is so beautiful.  she is going to be drop dead gorgeous as a woman.

    • rawrgrowlrawr

      Isn’t she already a woman? I think she is in her early 20s.

      • drdirection

        I thought she was 16 or so. I don’t know who she is though, so I was just guessing

  • I think that maybe the dress is wearing her.  That thing looks so huge on her. Too much dress for her small frame. 

  • TSkot

    Ugh.  She’s 23, not 12.  Too precious and too drab at the same time.

  • unbornfawn

    It is mostly pretty. Just looks like the top is sitting too high.

  • michelle shields

    I think she looks kinda squished, like someone was pinching her head and feet together. Don’t know if that makes sense or not but something looks off to me.

  • Sophie Collier

    She is a cutie, but man, she looks like she’s only three feet tall.  

  • miatamam

    Had no idea she’s Phil Collins daughter.

  • Amy Ellinger

    rare time where an admiring smile is the only comment I have 🙂

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I find her lovely and charming, and I hope she’s the best thing about that terrible-looking movie and gets much better opportunities in future.

    • Laylalola

      Man that thing looks awful. Julia Roberts so dominates in the trailers, I can only hope Roberts is the one to take the bulk of the criticism if it goes down (but I’m thinking this lovely girl is going to be tainted by connection).

  • Farthingale

    I love this silhouette, definitely for an ingenue. To be Ms. Picky Pants I’ll say the points at the breast are meant to be worn avec babyheads, and since she’s not serving baby the dress would accentuate her figure more if they were rounded.

  • ccm800

    This is way Werq-ier than many Werqs of late. Perfect dress on the perfect gal, especially to promote her role in this movie.

  • turtleemily

    How old is she? She looks 17 in the farther away shots but 10 years older when her face is larger in frame.

  • It’s sorta like Taylor Swift meets Zooey Deschanel

  • Lisa

    Oh, wow, just beautiful!  Perfect, from head to toe, I have no criticism on this look!

  • aristida_girl

    So pretty!

  • akprincess72

    WHAT is that lipstick???  We are the exact same coloring & I NEED that lipstick!!!!!

  • mochajava13

    So pretty, and perfect for her role in the movie.   I normally don’t like black and metallics, but this works really well.
