Lily Aldridge In J. Mendel – Bvlgari Festa High Jewelry Event

The thing I love about fashion is the feeling of undulated joy it can bring.

I was definitely feeling my feelings upon sight of Lily Aldridge at the Bvlgari Festa high jewelry event held at Bvlgari hotel on Thursday (November 16) in Beijing, China.

What. A. Beauty.

I don’t know what to give credit to first.

The stunning J. Mendel Spring 2018 silk mousseline pleated cape gown?

How beautiful Lily is, or the emerald Bvlgari jewels?

So, I’m going to say it’s a collective effort. Each element enhances the beauty of latter.

Aishwarya Rai has some top spot competition.

    Does anyone else get Maria Callas vibes from this look? Hair. jewels, eye makeup, and the regal dress?

    Wow, this is truly something special. You said it perfectly Catherine.

    BDOTW for sure. She looks absolutely stunning.

    Flawless, breathtaking. Definitely a BDOTY contender. The color, the jewelry – everything is just perfection. I absolutely love it.

  6. Mimmi November 18, 2017 at 08:56 #

    I literally gasped when I was this. Perfection.

    Somehow the color and fall of the gown reminded me of a Micheal Costello gown worn by Sonam Kapoor.

    This is SO gorgeous!! Love it. She did such a great job with styling it. Definitely the winner this week.

    Beautiful. I did not love that Rai Cannes dress so it has nothing on this look. Definitely, my BDOTW now knocking beautiful Lisa Bonet out of that spot and maybe BDOTY.

    Celine Dion, Billboard Music Awards in that fab white Stephane Rolland, remains securely in my top spot. Lily does look lovely here though. Love the green, the fitted and flowing elements, and the absence of sheer.

      Ditto. Neither tops Celine Dion’s Stephane Rolland. Lily looks gorgeous, but this is a rather typical fabric-y J.Mendel, no Couture artfulness.

    • Jeremy November 17, 2017 at 23:40 #

      Oh yeah, Celine in Stephane Rolland is THE iconic moment this year, for sure.

    Beautiful coloured dress + Perfect styling + Pink background and red carpet = BDOTY

  12. Jeremy November 17, 2017 at 20:05 #

    I’m literally speechless. The best I’ve ever seen her look. BDOTY contender for certain.

    Could you guys please excuse me for a sec, as I’m busy picking up my jaw that just dropped to the floor upon seeing this?! I am rarely a fan of Lily Aldridge’s red carpet looks, but this is BEYOND STUNNING!! The jade green off-the-shoulder J.Mendel gown fits her like a glove, and those emerald jewels brings out the richness of the color without overpowering it. This is HEAD TO TOE PERFECTION, BDOTY Top 5 no doubt!! Well done Lily Aldridge, now that’s what we call SLAY in your own A-game indeed!! Long live Queen Lily!!

    I generally enjoy Lily’s style particularly out of the models. Her looks for Bvlgari events this year have been superb with this outing rather wonderful.

    • Mimi November 17, 2017 at 20:25 #

      +1 ive been loving the elegant simplicity!

  15. Pedro November 17, 2017 at 17:12 #

    Wow! Flawless. BDOTY for sure

    • Fiona-Brasil November 17, 2017 at 17:34 #

      + 1.Simply stunning!

  16. Leandra November 17, 2017 at 16:57 #

    I thought Jessica Chastain was the easy winner for this week’s BD list. How wrong I was…
    This is a show stopper in every sense of the word.

  17. lmkw November 17, 2017 at 16:56 #

    Wow. I can’t breathe. Stunning perfection.

    • Catherine Kallon November 17, 2017 at 17:54 #

      that was my first feeling. too

  18. Valeria B. November 17, 2017 at 16:40 #

    WOW. Just wow. This is my BDOTY. Bye

  21. Mimi November 17, 2017 at 16:18 #

    GODDESS. BDOTY worthy for sure!

  22. Caroline November 17, 2017 at 16:16 #

    I’m keeping this in mind for my BDOTY list. Honestly, perfection.

    • Dorothy November 17, 2017 at 21:09 #

      I agree.

  23. meme November 17, 2017 at 16:12 #

    There’s a lot of pictures of her on the Daily Mail in this dress and the color is aqua.

    • Amanda F November 20, 2017 at 00:40 #

      Okay that is crazy – in one pic it could not be more green and in another it could not be more blue. In either case it is drop dead stunning but strange none the less!?! Also there seems to be a big stain on the front of it right by the slit. So confusing and yet so stunning.

  24. meme November 17, 2017 at 16:01 #

    Breathtaking. Perfection.
