Lily Collins Keeps it Showy for the Costume Designers Guild Awards

Posted on February 22, 2017

We can’t fault her for half-assing her look here, and we put it to you that the CDG Awards are an especially good place to pull out the style stops, so to speak (hence Aunt Meryl’s wacky muumuu), but even so…


… that’s a LOT for an event like this. We’d have rated this a dress for the Oscars or a big-budget film premiere in which she’s starring. We wouldn’t say she’s overdressed, necessarily. Or that she’s seeking attention in some sort of off-putting way. It’s just … a lot of dress. A bit on the unexpected side. But she was there to pick up an award, so we have to kind of give it to her for applying a Joan Crawford level of commitment to always putting on a show for the cameras. The drag makeup is fabulous. And w should all take a moment to silently pay tribute to her for making sure it was lined to her liking.

Now let’s argue over her hair. While we think her widow’s peak is gorgeous and worth highlighting, we’re not feeling this do for her.
