Lily Collins In Houghton – ‘The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ Madrid Premiere

Lily Collins In Houghton – ‘The Mortal Instruments City Of Bones’ Madrid Premiere

After feeling a tad disappointed by Lily Collins’ photocall look, she brought back the wow factor for ‘The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ Madrid premiere held at Callao Cinema in Spain yesterday evening.

Houghton is swiftly becoming the go-to designer for starlets such as Lily, Lucy Hale and Selena Gomez.

On this occasion the designer, Katharine Polk, created this vibrant red sleeveless Chantilly-lace top, bralet and skirt with a high-low hem especially for the girl of the moment.

Her ensemble was modern but she gave the look an old Hollywood feel, sporting retro waves complete with a fire-engine-red pout.

Platform pumps have been her shoe of choice during this promo tour; however, she selected a pair of hot-red Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps sans platform on this occasion.

A striking Jacob & Co. diamond ring completed her look.

If you would put one of Lily’s looks up for BDOTW which would it be?

The Berlin premiere or this look?

    this gal is always stunning 8)

    I like the skirt and the shoes, but her hair and the top+bra are awful.

    I don’t think I hate it as much as everyone else, but I don’t love it. I do think that Berlin should be up for BDOTW.

    Lordy, this is a disaster. I am so so so so beyond done with high low dresses and this one is done awfully! It is clearly tooo short in the front. The top should have been lined because that peekaboo bra just adds to this disaster. Yall know I am not a fan of pointy pumps so thats a thumbs down as well. Now the hair, I am not even going to get into that hot mess. This is most definitely not a contender for BDOTW and neither is her Berlin look.

    Her hair is giving me a whole Eddie Munster vibe. I do love the color on her though.

  7. Elaine August 23, 2013 at 16:18 #

    This is awful. From the hairstyle (which for me is the worst offender here) to the make up to the dress itself. Very disappointing.

    ohhh honey. no. just no.

  9. Rebecca Z August 23, 2013 at 15:56 #

    Berlin for sure. I really don’t like red lace–it always looks cheap in my opinion, and this is no exception. Dreadful dress for that and all the other reasons cited here.

  10. Ananya August 23, 2013 at 15:23 #

    Very reminiscent of J.Law’s Berlin Hunger Games premiere look. I much preferred that one though

  11. Suz August 23, 2013 at 15:16 #

    So glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like this look. I’ve been pretty obsessed with everything Lily Collins has worn lately, but this I cannot get on board with. Oh well, still can’t wait for her next look!

  12. Christine August 23, 2013 at 14:19 #

    This is a pretty look but she is not working this.

    • Nat39 August 23, 2013 at 17:42 #

      I’m surprised to say this about Lily (she usually carries all kind of looks very well), but on this occasion she is simply not working it. She looks awkward in this getup. Would’ve been nice if she had added a thin belt.

  13. Ingela August 23, 2013 at 14:01 #

    Can’t handle the awful make-up!

  14. Pedro August 23, 2013 at 13:57 #

    Such a bad look

    Only like the shoes

  15. dee August 23, 2013 at 13:53 #

    I don’t like anything about this look.

  16. Yeliz August 23, 2013 at 13:44 #

    I prefer this to her Berlin premiere look, but I don’t really love either look tbh. But I like the old Hollywood feel of this look.

  17. Carolina August 23, 2013 at 13:23 #

    The whole look is a no. Too matchy – and then it looks as if she’d gotten dressed, got hair and makeup done – and then stepped into a drenching rain. Everything droops: hair, dress hem.

  18. TL August 23, 2013 at 12:59 #

    Really want to like it but I can’t. The hair style looks terrible. Also not a fan of a very obvious ‘bra under a see through lace” style. However, I could picture Emma Watson looking great in this dress

    • Ariadne August 23, 2013 at 14:18 #

      Agree with everything you said. The ‘retro waves’ hair style doesn’t suit her.

  19. Ash August 23, 2013 at 12:42 #

    both looks are BDOTW worthy! I prefer the Berlin one:)

  20. Princess Chi Chi August 23, 2013 at 12:12 #

    Her face says it all. Even she looks uncomfortable, I have so many issues with this dress (length, lace, bra etc) but I will settle on the main problem: her hair.

  21. Sarah August 23, 2013 at 11:50 #

    Terrible dress, hair and shoes. And I know it’s been said before but why does she darken her already heavy brows? The whole thing is just bad.

  22. Jolene August 23, 2013 at 11:34 #

    Oh Lord… you just dont do red lace in Spain,NEVER! Otherwise you look like a flamenco dancer.. and that hair??? Give the girl a fan and she will shout “Ole!! “

  23. Larissa August 23, 2013 at 11:21 #

    The dress itself is beautiful but she doesn’t look confident in it at all and the hairstyle is really bad.

    • Denise August 23, 2013 at 11:46 #

      I don’t think it is that bad either. Her hair should have been pulled back. The dress is pretty and the colour suits her. Maybe she has been reading the reviews for the movie and lost her smile.

  24. Mandy August 23, 2013 at 10:32 #

    I have to disagree. I loathe the hair and wish that the top had been lined so we didn’t see her nude bra. The only thing i like is the colour.

  25. Alina August 23, 2013 at 10:30 #

    I actually think this is really bad.
    The dress is cheap looking and unflattering. Also, I really dislike her hairstyle which isn’t doing her any favours.

  26. Charlotte August 23, 2013 at 10:28 #

    I don’t like this look.
    The color of the dress is great but the hem is way too short of the front and the top is beautiful, but not really flaterring and I hate her hair.

    • Iva August 23, 2013 at 10:31 #

      I really wanna love it – but everything about this look is off.
      I only like the shoes for a change.

    • CreoleLady August 23, 2013 at 10:54 #

      Agree, word for word. Ugh, that hair. Neither look is a BDOTW contender for me; she’s can and has done much better. On the upside, at least it’s not black.

    • julyol1972 August 23, 2013 at 16:51 #

      +1 On the hair. The curls should have started further up her head. Where they begin makes her head look bobble-like and too round. Plus, it makes her widow’s peak really prominent. The dress is beautiful, but doesn’t work for me, because of the edgier vibe she’s been sporting recently. It’s almost too sugary sweet for this promo tour.
