Lily James In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Cinderella’ LA Premiere

Lily James In Elie Saab Couture - ‘Cinderella’ LA Premiere

Lily James attended the premiere of Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ held at the El Capitan Theatre on Sunday (March 1) in Hollywood, California joining co-stars Sophie McShera and Cate Blanchett.

Not to be upstaged on her special night, the British actress wore a gown fit for a fairytale ending by the red carpet king, Elie Saab.

While some of you will be stifling a not-another-Elie-Saab-Couture-princess-gown yawn, I couldn’t be more enamoured by her Fall 2014 Couture aqua-green gown with its embroidered detailing and perfectly themed outward appearance.

Seriously, what’s not to love?

Oozing elegance from every pore, I love the swept-back do, the flawless makeup and the Kwiat diamonds, which help enhance the look further.

With her butterfly appliqué Christian Louboutin ‘Cinderella’ strass peep-toes acting as her glass slippers and her Charlotte Olympia ‘Time Piece’ clutch ensuring she’s back home by midnight, this is by far her best look of this promo tour.

Do you agree?

The Australian actress wore a custom Celine look that personifies Parisian sartorial elegance.

Simple and yet intrinsically charming, this is quite a statement look for the contemporary dresser. What I love most is the pendant necklace, which prevents this look from feeling too one dimensional.

An instant classic or a total snooze?

Sophie McShera attended the premiere of Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ held at the El Capitan Theatre on Sunday (March 1) in Hollywood, California.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress, who stars in this movie as Drizella, one of Cinderella’s older stepsisters, was not to be left in the corner wearing this bold floral-print Andrew Gn Resort 2015 gown.

I love how the colour signals that spring is upon us and the appliqués give a 3-D effect to those lush floral blooms. This was a gown worthy of a major movie premiere.

However, while I would never say that an actress in a movie should play down her red carpet look in order not to upstage the main star, in this case a part of me feels like that’s exactly what has happened here to Lily James.

By the same token, I will take nothing away from Sophie’s look. She often fades into the background, so I’m delighted she had her moment to shine.

If you are having a strong case of déjà vu, that may be because Kaitlyn Dever wore a short-sleeve version of this gown in a sunnier yellow and orange hue back in October.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress wore a beautiful charcoal frock from Naeem Khan’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection, which was a playful and fun way to celebrate this movie.

What I love about this dress is its classic shape, which brims with elegance, while the adornments bring a touch of glamour further amped up with the metallic-silver Brian Atwood ‘Tamara’ sandals.

Willow Shields attended the premiere of Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ held at the El Capitan Theatre on Sunday (March 1) in Hollywood, California.

My immediate reaction to this was wow, and not the good kind.

The 14-year-old actress wore an Alfredo Villalba Spring 2015 dress, which I only liked from the waist up.

From the waist down this look booked a one-way ticket to Tackyville.

Between the PVC stripes, the sheer panels and the fact that there is little under the revealing skirt, I really have to ask: What was she (and/or her stylist) thinking?
