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.
