Lily Collins in Houghton at The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones Premiere

Posted on August 23, 2013

We’ve reached that portion of the poledance where we’re pretty much obligated to present the latest getup. We may run out of things to say or she may run out of stylish options, but it’s sort of like what Tom said to Lorenzo that time we watched Chicago. “If nothing else, you’ve just gotta respect how hard everyone’s working.”


Lily Collins attends the premiere of “The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones” in Madrid in Houghton.

Regardless, we’re gonna have to call this one a flop. The hair looks greasy and it’s not flattering. You have to work to make red lace not look a little trashy and we’re afraid not enough effort was put in on that front. The top is sort of cute but the skirt is pure fug. And the super-matchy shoes just depress us. Oh, Lily. Looks like someone needs a nap, dear.

    She must be having an affair with Don Draper, that’s why she is wearing red whorehouse curtains.

  • conniemd

    Gotta admire that the dress does like Madrid (trashy Madrid) like her Berlin outfit looked Berlin. Clearly, there is effort.

    • Rhonda Shore

      That’s exactly what i thought…red lace is not a bad choice for Madrid, though the execution is lacking.

  • Karen Belgrad

    If there is a weed-whacker in the limo… get out!

  • flamingoNW

    Disaster, head to toe. Hideous.

  • gabbilevy

    Oh, Lily.

  • Sweet_Fashionista

    The poor child looks like she doesn’t know where she is, let alone what she’s wearing.

  • pattyw

    I could have *maybe* gotten behind the dress if the hair weren’t so utterly tragic.

  • Hetha Innis

    All true, but DAMN that face is just exquisite.

  • Girl, that’s not your hair.

  • filmcricket

    Wednesday Addams hosts her own Red Wedding.

  • Lesley

    who wore it better betty boop or lily collins? betty boop takes the cake on this one..

  • PlethoraofBooks

    As always, you peg what was bugging me about the look – its her hair more than anything else, because instead of looking retro, it looks greasy and gross and limp.

  • newleaf1

    Wow, those are some talented artists and stylists to make such an amazing looking girl look so very, very bad.

  • decormaven

    Let the poor girl rest. That is tired on parade, and it’s not pretty. The stylist responsible for that hairstyle should be fired.

    • Little_Olive

      Really, the way he went about that side-part… ugh. It looks as if she had been doing hairstyles playing in the pool.

  • MartyBellerMask

    I think once the negative reviews start pouring in, you’re allowed to throw in the towel.

  • appliquer

    Whoa, no, no, no!

  • Lily-Rygh

    HORRIBLE hair. She looks like a Spanish Eddie Munster. (And I say that as someone with a widow’s peak myself!)

    • Qitkat

      Yes, those of us blessed with a w.p. have to be careful with hair styling. I hate her hair even more than I hate the mullet dress. It offsets her dramatic eyebrows in a very unflattering way.

  • lobsterlen

    And to finish the the look she is wearing one of those armor like platex bras under that red lace mess.
    First we had granny panties now its granny bras.

  • Dagney

    Okay, it LITERALLY looks like an outfit begat from some trailer trash “fashionista.” You can see the tan bra.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    I think a red bra would have worked better, or it should have just been lined. The mullet skirt is kinda sad too.

  • My eyes!!! Dear God, no. Hell no. Shit no. No times infinity. No in every way imaginable.

    • StellaZafella

      I’m thinkin’ Lily should ship this dress (?) to Christina Ricci…I wonder why, because I like Christina Ricci.

      • kimmeister

        She looks like a Christina Ricci impersonator here.

        • StellaZafella

          I’m glad somebody else saw that.
          And my drag mother (goddess rest her wedgies) always said: “Real women were the first Female Impersonators!”

  • formerlyAnon

    See-through lace crop top and full-skirted red lace mullet skirt are each bad ideas. Pairing them worsened the situation exponentially.

  • halleygee

    Ugh, awful.

  • JauntyJohn

    It looks like she wandered over from filming something like “Flamenco 2: The Passion!” or some down market sequel to a movie you forgot was released but occasionally floats into your Netflix auto-recommendations because you watched that one classic musical recently.

    The hair must be labelled: A Somewhat Creative But Failed Experiment and leave it at that.

  • unbornfawn

    Looks like everyone on her style team is exhausted. Someone said “red” and that became the theme for the day. The fit on the bodice is unflattering, the hair is pulled too far back. Go get some sleep, you all can do better.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    That bra thingy makes her boobs look sad. Also that hair is sad…lovely face as always.

  • marlie

    A huge miss for sure, but for some reason, I don’t think this is as horrendous as it might be on another ladystar.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    This is the first major miss for her with me – and whoa-nelly, it’s a big one! Everything is wrong.

  • amanda lynn


  • SewingSiren

    The part in her hair looks like it hurts.

  • Tess Danesi

    This is probably why sheer is not a good idea at all. Off the runway nip is impractical and the strapless bra just looks awful.

    Her hair is so wrong. Well, this is proof that even the genetically gifted can fuck up sometimes. That makes me feel a little better.

  • alyce1213

    I’m just gonna pretend I didn’t see this. My only solace is that it would look worse on anyone else.

  • crash1212

    It’s Madrid. Spain. Flamenco…etc. I get what she was going for. I don’t hate it, but it’s not her finest effort.

  • NoveltyRocker

    Hair and shoulders of this dress are not shaping her well.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I really loathe that hairstyle on her. Probably on anyone, really.

  • Glam Dixie

    Whew, I was so relieved to scroll down and read that y’all didn’t like it either. Hideous.

  • CommentsByKatie

    Yes, totally agree with everything you said. On a better day and with better hair and shoes, maybe the dress would work? But together it’s a mess. Poor girl, she probably just wanted ONE day to sleep in at her hotel. She looks exhausted.

  • nannypoo

    What was she thinking? Everything here is bad.

  • Mazenderan

    Awful. And her eyebrows still need plucked.

  • stubbornthoughts

    That hair is awful on her, poor thing. Looks like she just stepped out of the shower, put a brush through her hair, and threw on some draperies.

  • rh33

    Saw the hair, the lips, the brows and thought Eddie Munster.

  • steeg of their own

    The whole look is hideous. The top looks cheap with obvious illusion fabric (and you can still see her bra), the skirt is just weird, the hair is lank, and her makeup says “if no one else is going to try hard, I’m certainly not going to go for broke”. Ick all over.

    Also, is it just me, or does her bra look like it’s two-toned? The lower part of the cups look like they’re a different color fabric than the rest of the skin-tone stuff.

  • GillianHolroyd

    …what Tom said to Lorenzo that time we watched Chicago. “If nothing else, you’ve just gotta respect how hard everyone’s working.”…


  • judybrowni

    That red curtain is rising too fast tn her pudenda, she’d better run for it, before the photographers get a flash of the good china.

  • Shawn EH

    You got it all. Again, I want to echo the uncles and remind a young woman of sexy lady slacks as an option. Might have saved that top.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Hmmmm ……………….. I kind of like it. I don’t even know. It’s been a long week.

  • Jacquelyn

    So. Much. Red.

    I feel like she was transported back to a Wild West Salon and is the owner of a house of ill repute.

    And the hair. Oh honey. You are GORGEOUS. Don’t do this to yourself.

    Still adore her, though.

  • Anniebet

    Dang, my hands feel greasy just from looking at her head. That is seriously one super-hiddy hairstyle. Her people sure let her down this time, but she should have enough savvy to realize this was a big mistake.

  • Suse

    horrific, horrendous, horrible, horrid ~ and that’s just the hair!

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Goth Betty Boop?

  • MilaXX

    yeah, nothing’s working here. It’s just one big splotch of red.

  • Poeta Paz

    Ay, Bendito!

  • Louise Bryan

    Nap-time, or a new project. That hair! That mullet skirt! Those matchy shoes! Ay, caramba!

  • ItsDicey

    Egads, this is horrible!

  • Contralto

    What the hell happened?!!!

  • kathrineb

    The brows are TOO MUCH they are all I can see! And this is coming from someone that doesn’t mind heavier brows!

  • jmorino08

    This doesn’t even look like the same girl! She must be exhausted!

  • BrooklynBomber

    Belongs on a ‘worst dresses of the year’ list.

  • RuthGo

    A mullet dress with a see through top? Girl, that is not your dress. That’s Satan’s dress.

  • procrastinatrice

    I pretty much hate all of this. Ugh.
