Lily Collins In Valentino Couture – 2012 Met Gala

Lily Collins had yet another princess moment on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala, which was held on Monday night in New York City.

She looked adorable wearing a Valentino Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her off-white sheer lace gown with a floral underlay, long sleeves, and a bow waistband is very ‘Little House on the Prairie’, but she totally makes it work for her.

Lily teamed her romantic gown with a Valentino grey snakeskin clutch and H. Stern jewels.

A pretty updo and soft makeup completed her look.

    I love this! She looks like a princess straight out of a fairytale! It’s so romantic. Best dressed worthy for me.

    I like the dress, it is cute but I don’t really like it with Lily’s colouring, she just looks too washed out. With that said though she carries herself so well in this dress. Had it been a different colour this would have been a fantastic look.

    Sooo cute!

    Nelly, from Little House, would scratch her eyes out from jealousy. I, however, am bored senseless.

    Romantic and elegant. I think this look is perfect for her. She knows what works for her and she is one of the best! 🙂

    would look so much better with better light on her, like on the model.

  8. Raquel May 8, 2012 at 21:17 #

    I think the whole look is so delicate that she stands out.

    She’s beautiful, but I’d like to see her having more fun with fashion and playing with colours or mixing prints or something like that. She can do it.

    so romantic, I kinda love it. But the clutch is an odd choice

    i loved this collection when it came out, but it was very bridal… it totally works on a girl like lily collins tho

    she looks so dreamy n romantic in it. love it!

      Ditto. Hate the clutch but I’m willing to overlook it because she looks like she just stepped out of a fairytale.

      • Yeliz May 8, 2012 at 18:51 #

        I agree. The clutch has nothing to do with the gown but the overall look is just lovely!

    did she raid grandmas closet? on the model it looks gorgeous on lily it looks tragic.

    • Parvati May 9, 2012 at 12:46 #

      I agree, I don’t really like it on her. I prefer to see her in edgier looks.

  14. Riley May 8, 2012 at 15:25 #

    She looks cute but the GREY SNAKESKIN clutch with a lilac floral gown? NO. Even if it is by the same designer, don’t take the easy way out. Pick a clutch that works!

    This gown is forgettable on her, I know I’ve been saying that a lot, but it’s true. She’s too short.

  15. Christine May 8, 2012 at 15:00 #

    It sorta works but I am not liking it.

  16. Leeann May 8, 2012 at 14:21 #

    My teeth hurt just looking at her- it’s just so sweet

  17. bm May 8, 2012 at 14:12 #

    No, this is not a good look for her.
    But, i love the clutch.

  18. msd May 8, 2012 at 13:57 #

    She’s very pretty but it’s awfully twee for the event.

    Overall, I’m disappointed that so few designers honoured the theme of the night. The Met Gala isn’t just about promoting your own brand. It was the same deal last year when almost no-one captured the McQueen spirit.

    • Parvati May 9, 2012 at 12:46 #

      I totally agree with you about last year’s event.

  19. Emmeline May 8, 2012 at 13:56 #

    When I saw this last night I thought she looked like she was going to a prom in the 70s, but it’s grown on me this morning.

    I agree that she makes it work for her. The styling is what really saved it for me.

    this is my favorite dress of this collection and i was totally expecting too see it at Cannes Fil Festival next week. I don’t think Lily has the right height to pull this off.

  21. Aideen May 8, 2012 at 13:49 #

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the coverage, I love hearing your views on all the dresses, and really appreciate all the work you’ve done covering the event. Its a mammoth job and hope you have some champagne on ice waiting for you when you’re finished!

    • Fashion Critic May 8, 2012 at 13:55 #

      thanks Aideen.

      A have about 10 or so to go before I call it a day.
