Lily Collins In Johanna Ortiz – Cartier Queen’s Cup Polo

This Sunday’s annual Cartier Queen’s Cup was a who’s who of the worlds of fashion, film and society, with polo aficionados joining the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at Windsor Great Park to enjoy a thoroughly British day out.

Guildford-born Lily Collins was looking every inch the English Rose, despite wearing a dress with plenty of Latin flavour from Johanna Ortiz’s Fall 2018 collection.

Fluted ruffles – a signature of the brand – and a key-hole cut-out made this a statement-making summer style. Rendered in an eye-catching bird and floral print the look fuses effortless femininity with a sense of playfulness.

With her signature bold red lip and Stephen Jones Millinery fascinator, the actress wouldn’t have looked out of place at last month’s royal wedding.

Get The Look: Lily Collins’ Dramatic Sparkle-Accented Met Gala Beauty Look

One of evening’s most creative and striking beauty looks, Lily Collins’ ultra-sparkly and dramatic makeup made quite the style statement at this year’s Met Gala. Beautifully interpreting the Gala’s theme – “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” — in an innovative fashion, makeup artist Fiona Stiles created an artistic makeup that was dark and intense while remaining incredibly chic.

Serving as a stunning contrast to the angelic renaissance beauty looks of the evening, here’s how Fiona created this dramatic look:

SKIN: Every great beauty look starts with a makeup-free and freshly cleansed face. To prep Lily’s skin, Fiona began by massaging Lancôme Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate onto her face. Once the skin was primed and hydrated, she continued by blending Lancôme Le TeintIdole Ultra 24H Longwear Foundation (in 110 Ivoire C) onto her skin for a flawless complexion. She them worked to blurany imperfections and adding additional brightness with Lancôme Effacernes(in 110 Ivoire) concealer. She locked in the look with a dusting of Lancôme Absolue Powder (Ecru Light).

CHEEKS: To sculpt Lily’s cheeks and face, Fiona used Lancôme Le Duo Contouring and Highlighting Stick (in Ivoire) and blended it out for an effortless finish. For radiance and dimension, Lily’s face was highlighted with Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter (in Shimmering Buff).

EYES: Once the skin was perfected, Fiona moved onto the eyes which was the focal point of the beauty look. To create that softly diffused smoky eye look, she used two essential eyeshadow shades. Lancôme Color Design eyeshadows (in Volcano Shimmer and Smokey Brown) were blended onto the lids and crease. Opting out of eyeliner, Fiona framed the look by coating Lily’s lush lashes with Lancôme Hypnose Drama (in Excessive Black) mascara. For that dazzling sparkle design, she strategically placed rounded crystals along the center of Lily’s upper and lower lash lines.

BROWS: Already full and beautifully shaped, Fiona groomed Lily’s brows with Lancôme Sourcils Styler (in Transparent).
.
LIPS: For a stained-glass look,Fiona saturated Lily’s pout with Lancôme Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer(in Purple Onyx).

BODY: Much like her beauty look, Fiona wanted Lily’s skin to glisten, she achieved that sheen with a blend of Lancôme TeintIdole Ultra Custom Highlighter Drops in Champagne Glow and Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter in Shimmer Buff.

Lily Collins In Givenchy Couture – 2018 Met Gala

Lily Collins always has a playful approach to fashion so I was looking forward to seeing what she would wear to the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City. She joined Lynda Carter, Donatella Versace, and Amal Clooney.

She was a vision in Givenchy Spring 2018 Couture with its inky colour and contrasts of structure and sheer panels creating such dark romance.

The head-turning detail was no doubt the headpiece itself which recalls the halos of religious art with its two-dimensional quality.

Leaving no detail forgotten, she carried a rosary and accented her glitter-rimmed eyes with a red teardrop.

Front Row @ Prada Resort 2019

So many pretties (and a few handsome lads, too) were at the Prada Resort 2019 presentation on Friday (May 4) in New York City. The fashion house’s quirky, colourful sensibilities made for quite the eclectic front row.

Lily Collins: Grunge met girly in this Prada Fall 2018 look that threw caution to the wind when it came to tradition. Tube top aside, the schoolgirl pleats and socks took on a punky spirit with the skirt’s techy, polyurethane-like overlay and tall platform shoes. The lilac eye shadow and fashion-face clutch looked like they belonged to another outfit—but it was all a part of the funky charms.

Poppy Delevingne: I don’t think this hot-pink hue of this chiffon and sequin Prada Fall 2018 frock could have gotten any hotter. But, Poppy wasn’t about to have a customary pretty-in-pink moment, as she added the edgy-goth oxblood lip and black heels to dramatize the effect.

Dianna Agron: Even though there was a lot going on with this dimensionally embellished, neon-floral-studded Prada Fall 2018 design, I didn’t find the chiffon-coated dress overbearing. I love how she let the frock be front and centre by keeping her styling on the basic side. The one bold slick of the coral lip was the perfect finish.

Lily Collins In Reem Acra – Cartier Mid-Winter Gala

Lily Collins was a vision at the Cartier Mid-Winter Gala in San Francisco, California on Friday (April 6).

The ‘To the Bone’ actress made a dramatic statement in a Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2018 ensemble.

This golden pumpkin shade is not something that we see a lot of on the red carpet, but it creates such a luxurious statement while bringing out the golden tones in her necklace.

I’m sure there will be some who will deem the colour palette as too Halloween-y, but I think it’s successful with the black cropped top adding a moody undercurrent to the atypical orange.

Had the outfit been one colour, it might have been overwhelming.

What do you think?
