Lucy Liu In Vivienne Westwood & J. Mendel – American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala

Lucy Liu In Vivienne Westwood & J Mendel - American Ballet Theatre's Opening Night Spring Gala

Lucy Liu was a vision in white while attending the American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala held at the Lincoln Center on Monday evening in New York City.

The ‘Elementary’ actress wore a signature Vivienne Westwood strapless gown.

Her beautifully crafted gown drapes at the waist then elegantly falls to the ground, creating a small train.

I simply adore the J. Mendel capelet she added to gown. It elevates the gown to a whole new level.

Silver Lorraine Schwartz jewels, a simple ponytail and a gold Ferragamo clutch provided the finishing touches to her BDOTW-worthy look – even on Cannes week.

My girl crush just deepened.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this!!!!! BDOTW contender for sure!!!!! Oh my goodness so beautiful. Those earrings especially are stunning.

  • EmmaWOodhouse

    I have two tiny quibbles: the clutch should have been silver, and the fur should have been a touch more ivory. Other than that this is FLAWLESS perfection. I love it! BDOTW-worthy–love the elegant bolero with the draped gown. Style crush for sure!

    Gold clutch is a minor flaw, should’ve been silver, superb otherwise.

  • FC310

    Regal !

  • Aline

    WOW. I just gasped here. This is perfection. From the gown to the capelet to the exquisite jewels and the perfect hairstyle. She looks like an Ice Queen. BDOTW!

  • Moxie

    Stunning, although the fit could have been better. Love the capelet.

  • TeaAtTwo

    She look splendid and I adore the capelet. SJP who loves to wear blazers, cardigans and leather jackets on the red carpet should take note of this for elegant evening cover ups.

  • justme

    She looks gorgeous.

  • Christine

    So gorgeous but not liking the caplet.

  • dee

    Wow, sooo gorgeous. Love this look.

  • Joy

    My girl crush continues too! I have absolutely loved everything she has worn for a few months now. She is stunning. I am always amazed how someone as petite as she is, can pull off these gorgeous gowns. Love the ivory, on her skin tone. BDOTW for me!

  • Anne

    I agree with others about the size/fit, but this is just so beautiful I can’t even find fault.

  • Samuel

    Is it just me, or does the capelet look like something someone would wear with jeans? It has a sporty/casual feel that doesn’t seem to match the glamour of the gown?

    • adrian

      +1 It does not match the glamour of the gown. It’s not horrible, but I don’t love them together.

  • Erika

    The dress maybe a skosh bit, but she looks great. Sexy in Versace or eleganza like in here, Lucy Liu consistently looks fabulous on the red carpet. The force is very strong with this one!

  • Iris

    am I the only one who thinks the dress is a size too large on her petite frame? also think the capelet sits awkwardly on her — all in all, too much fabric.

  • Cass

    I don’t know how she does it. But it gave me goosebumps. She looks so elegant!

  • Alicat

    Gorgeous, elegant gown. Vivienne Westwood excels in draping and flattering cuts. Perfect styling.

  • the ogre

    she’s flawless here. everything ties in so beautifully. the capelet is a unique and original touch. u can’t ignore a look like this even before cannes film festival starts…

  • Alina

    BDOTW contender for sure. She’s so elegant!

  • Yeliz

    I’m sure we wil see even more stunning looks at Cannes, but this is still a BDOTW-worthy look. This is simple elegance at its best. She looks enchanting.

  • TL

    Simple and gorgeous, she looks stunning.
