We suppose she and/or her stylist consider this a “fantasy movie premiere” kind of look – and we can’t say we disagree – but we’re pretty underwhelmed:
Evangeline Lily attends the premiere of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” in Los Angeles, California in a Catherine Deane ‘Savannah’ dress with a silver beaded bib and floating silk chiffon train.

We wouldn’t expect her to show up in full Cate Blanchett-as-Galadriel finery. She’s not that kind of gal and she’s not that kind of elf. But this gown, while very pretty, doesn’t do a thing for her figure or her coloring. The waist sits too high, for one. And the bust seems designed to hide her natural shape as much as possible. Then there’s the hair, which we can’t even …
We’re not huge fans of the “mega-braids paired with gowns” trend for the RC, but we suppose an elf actress at a Tolkien movie premiere should indulge a little, but that’s not some pretty elf hair; that’s full-on honky-tonk mess. And those booms (T Lo term for giant bangs) are out of control. We think some sort of Pinterest-style braid is definitely called for, but this thing just isn’t working for her at all.
Evie, go for dark green gowns and dresses for this poledance. It not only suits your character style, but it’ll make your coloring pop. You’re not a silver-white kind of elf.
And yes, we keep using “elf” just to drive the Tolkien purists nuts.
