Lily Collins in Houghton and Fausto Puglisi at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards
We should admit upfront that this is not a skirt we are inclined to like. In fact, this is a skirt we are compelled to condemn on principle alone. And yet…
Lilly Collins attends the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California in a Houghton top paired with a Fausto Puglisi skirt, Graziela Gems earrings, and EF Collection diamond bangle and rings.

… it almost works. Almost. Okay, maybe just a little. It’s the Picky Teenager Awards, so theatricality is certainly to be expected. We can’t fault her for its goofiness. But man, is it ever stiff. And we hate that the back is solid black. It looks like a big black butt tongue and we doubt that’s the phrase her stylist wants to be reading this morning. Also, since the skirt is just so very, we think the accentuated shoulders of that top are a bit much. We think sleeveless might’ve been a good idea. The makeup’s not working for us. She looks odd with a winged eye and an almost colorless lip. Add the messy, big hair (which admittedly looks much better from the back) and it’s giving off a weird Winehouse vibe that doesn’t suit her – or the clothes, for that matter.
