Lily Collins in Christian Siriano at a “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” Event

Posted on August 01, 2013

We usually weed out pictures of celeb outfits if we can’t find a couple good head-to-toe shots, and we barely even glance at photosets with no standing shots, but we love this outfit so much we had to feature it, despite the fact that she’s seated the whole time.

 

Lily Collins attends a Q&A and autograph session for fans in anticipation of Screen Gems’ action-fantasy “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” in Chicago Ridge, Illinois in a Christian Siriano jacket and shorts paired with a ASOS cropped tee and Brian Atwood pumps.

Or maybe… because of the fact that she’s seated the whole time? Because we have to admit, we’re impressed she wore very wide-legged pair of shorts and a half top while seated. On a stage. Facing an audience. That takes some ladyballs.

Granted, she’s fetal and she’s tiny, so it’s not like she was risking a public stoning or anything. But one unflattering picture of her in this getup could have been ridiculously embarrassing if people bitchier than we ever got hold of it and decided to run with it. Any stylist worth their salt would’ve stopped her and asked “Are you sure you want to wear this?” But kudos are owed to whoever made the decision, because we think this is chic-as-hell, eye-catching, and slightly unusual. She looks utterly adorable, we love that print, and this would be an example of exactly the right time to deploy the standard black pump. Attagirl.
