Megalyn Echikunwoke In Claire Pettibone – ‘Damsels in Distress’ New York Screening

Megalyn Echikunwoke also attended the ‘Damsels in Distress’ screening at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City on Monday evening.

The ‘90201’ actress, who stars in this movie, wore a beautiful Claire Pettibone Spring 2012 Bridal gown.

Claire Pettibone is a top bridal designer, and it shows here.

The beautiful ivory gown with a tulle beaded train has all the romantic elements of a bridal gown, but I think this look screams bridal and not enough red carpet, despite Megalyn’s best efforts to add her subtle sexiness to the look.

Tumbling curls, a dark lip colour and a gold box clutch completed her look.

What do you think?

Premiere perfect or here comes the bride?

    It didn’t cross my mind that it was bridal until it was pointed out, so I think it’s fine. She looks lovely.

      Same here. She doesn’t look like a bride, to me she just looks magnificent!

      To be honest I didn’t know it was a bridal gown until I read the post so I think it’s fine too.

    She is too old to be in 90210, actually most of the actors there (I watch and love 90210).

    • SilentVisitor April 5, 2012 at 14:47 #

      and the relationship between your remark and her dress is?

      • Carolina Roq April 6, 2012 at 14:44 #

        Stop taking this website and comments so seriously man, for God sake. Dã!

          thanks peeps…lets calm down and spread the love for fashion ;)

    The train is a bit much because of the bridal thing – but my goodness, talk about doing justice to the gown. She is smoldering.

    • Riley April 4, 2012 at 14:22 #

      I agree. The tulle thing is what made it bridal. Other than that, she is smok’n and it is a fab red carpet look.

    • SilentVisitor April 5, 2012 at 14:47 #

      Agree

  4. AW April 4, 2012 at 14:09 #

    I don’t think it’s bridal or red carpet. It looks like a fancy neglige.

    I love the hair and makeup and her body is smoking but the dress doesn’t do it for me.

  5. Lynxy April 4, 2012 at 14:22 #

    Get rid of the train and change the colour to virtually any other colour (Rose! Navy! Etc etc) and I would be calling for a bdotw nomination. Beautiful hair and makeup, killer body, and the detailing on the dress is very pretty.

  6. Carolyn April 4, 2012 at 14:29 #

    I agree with Linda. I didn’t realize it was bridal and I think she looks beautiful on the red carpet – sexy yet elegant.

  7. Ramsay April 4, 2012 at 14:33 #

    I don’t mind the dress at all – and I don’t think it’s bridal – I just think it’s too much for a premiere – maybe for some award ceremony – i mean some people are wearing pajamas to premieres, this is too much….

  8. ber April 4, 2012 at 14:34 #

    It doesn’t look bridal at all. I think she looks fantastic.

  9. CTgirl April 4, 2012 at 14:48 #

    Too tight in the chest. Size up and it would be great.

  10. Anna April 4, 2012 at 15:24 #

    Looks good and not bridal, just a bit too much for this particular occasion.

    p.s. LOVE the hair.

    Too bridal for me, but she looks good.

  12. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) April 4, 2012 at 15:43 #

    Bridal looking but beautiful.

  13. Jill April 4, 2012 at 18:11 #

    I would have NEVER thought of this as bridal. her hairstyle, lipstick, her whole look scream sophistication and glamour, not wedding. the transparent train caught my attention but that was more of a “hm, that’s weird” reaction than “hm, that’s bridal”. if this look is bridal then ALL of Taylor Swift’s looks are bridal too

  14. Christine April 4, 2012 at 18:25 #

    She looks good. Like the others had stated, I didn’t realized it was bridal until you pointed it out.

  15. love April 4, 2012 at 19:09 #

    Agree didn’t see bridal until it was pointed out. But now that it has been said I think if she did not have that sheer fabric trailing behind her it would be perfect . However I LOVE the look from head to toe gorgeous!!

  16. EmmaWoodhouse April 4, 2012 at 19:14 #

    Premiere PERFECT and a BDOTW nominee!!!!!!!!!!! :) I wish the cleavage was toned down, but aside from that I think this dress is DIVINE and her styling keeps it out of the aisle. :)

  17. FChew April 4, 2012 at 19:26 #

    The model on the left looks bridal…Megalyn looks smoldering and not bridal

  18. Aline April 4, 2012 at 21:50 #

    What a a beautiful beautiful beautiful dress. I’m in love with it. But the makeup ruins the look for me :(

  19. Rebecca Z April 5, 2012 at 01:24 #

    My first thought was bridal. My second was I want to look like her. It is a pretty dress…but her hair and makeup are gorgeous. I agree–ditch the tulle and dye this dress mint or light rose or red or blue….then it is a winner.

  20. chyc April 5, 2012 at 03:13 #

    Though she looks smoking hot, the dress does look bridal before I read your post.

  21. WendyB April 5, 2012 at 04:12 #

    She looks gorgeous. I stayed at the Tribeca Grand the night of my wedding so it’s a good place for a bridal look :-D

  22. gurlygurl April 5, 2012 at 06:12 #

    Even on the runway I thought this was just a stunning evening gown. I think on Megalyn that little train does remind me a bit of a veil but I still don’t particularly think of this as a bridal look. I adore the beautiful detail on the skirt and it looks better on the red carpet than the runway. Absolutely divine.

  23. Emi April 5, 2012 at 13:39 #

    Bridal or not… it’s gorgeous and she chose a great make up, maybe a lighter make up would make her look a bit like a bride. BDOTW contender?

  24. Shruti April 5, 2012 at 17:12 #

    Too much for a movie premiere but would’ve been perfect for the Oscars. It’s a stunning dress and she wears it extremely well. Everything’s beautiful here.

  25. Jess2 April 6, 2012 at 09:20 #

    The first thing I thought was bridal but she looks stunning!! Love the colour with her skin, a perfect ‘marriage’ if you will between dress and body and I love the lip colour. BDOTW
