Hi, doll. It’s Sunday and you know what that means. We’re serving up some Croques Madames and dishing about the best party looks of the week. This week, we loved Jessica Chastain in Givenchy couture and Kate Hudson in Jenny Packham at the American Cinematheque Awards, but the salliest party gal of all was English-American actress Lily Collins at the Rome Film Festival for the premiere of her new film, Love, Rosie.
Talk about love. What wasn’t to love about Lily in this black and violet Elie Saab number from the designer’s Spring 2014 Haute Couture collection? Now if this dress looks a bit familiar to you, doll, it’s because it’s the very frock that we suggested Sandra Bullock wear to the Oscars last year. Maybe Lily was eavesdropping.
Anyway, Lily looked smashing in this strapless chiffon gown, which featured a belted black bustier, ombre chiffon skirt and elegant Watteau train. She added platform heels by Brian Atwood, diamond stud earrings by Norman Silverman and a fun mix of rings by Melissa Kaye Jewelry, Vita Fede and EF Collection.
As if that weren’t enough to win this week’s Sally Award, Lily topped off the look with a side-parted, retro-glam bob styled by Ken O’Rourke. Collins’ makeup artist, Polly Osmond, gave Lily a pretty berry lip with Lancome’s L’Absolu Velours gloss in Violine, the perfect balance for her strong, signature brows. Well done, doll.
