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.

    I love it. All of it.

    Waist up I’m blown away. But the skirt is confusing

    It’s a no from me.

    I love this. In theory, I should hate it but man does it look perfect! don’t try this at home though. I’m sure this is the one time this outfit works ever.

    Fabulous. Love it.

    I would’ve been 100% on board if the teardrop wasn’t there. This is Met Gala and theatricality is welcomed, but this detail is seriously over the top.

    love this look,especially her hair and makeup,when you take a closer look you will understand how much efforts she put into this look.I love the red teardrop on her cheek,reminds of the JPG 2007 Haute couture show.

    This is in my top 3. I think the sheer works in this case. Make up and hair on point, I really like this.

  9. Pheephee May 8, 2018 at 4:19 am #

    I love this also. Its very on theme and yet still beautiful. It didn’t veer into tackiness, which I appreciate.
    Love her beauty look and her headpiece.

  10. Marriana May 8, 2018 at 3:51 am #

    Perfect & on theme.

  11. Danielle May 8, 2018 at 2:22 am #

    One of my favourites so far, but I really wish she’d ditch the rosary and line the skirt all the way down. Everything else is perfect.

  12. Kimma May 8, 2018 at 2:00 am #

    One of my favourites. The whole package is perfection but the detail that really pushes it to the next level is the eye makeup.

  13. Adriana May 8, 2018 at 1:37 am #

    I think the inspiration here is the “adolorata virgin” or “virgen de los dolores” wich is represented with tears.

  14. CreoleLady May 8, 2018 at 1:32 am #

    Halos, rosaries, and sheer. Hmmm, interesting dichotomies. This theme heavenly bodies and the Catholic imagination could be taken into disturbing directions. Vampire crossed with a nun here for me. Not sure I am feeling it.

      +1. Would have loved it had it not given such gothic vibes.

    I like everything about this as a Met Gala costume except for the rosary which I find offensive. Generally speaking, I do not like using religion symbols as fashion accessories.

  16. AnnieOh May 8, 2018 at 1:01 am #

    I love this! She is absolutely gorgeous

  17. Lolly. May 8, 2018 at 12:58 am #

    One of the best dressed!

  18. Caitlin May 8, 2018 at 12:54 am #

    I think this is a very clever and sophisticated visualisation of the theme

  19. Schoolbea May 8, 2018 at 12:28 am #

    The rosary and the teardrop take it a bit into costume territory, but the dress and the headpiece are beautiful, and bring the right amount of drama. I love how the echoes of a nun’s habit are ever so subtle in the neckline’s dual colour.

    • Christine May 8, 2018 at 12:33 am #

      It’s a costume gala dear

      • Schoolbea May 8, 2018 at 12:43 am #

        Maybe I didn’t word it properly? Wearing a rosary with a dress that echoes a nun’s habit seems too literal to me. There are degrees to everything.

        • Christine May 8, 2018 at 12:48 am #

          So you’re saying it’s offensive? The rosary? I can see it. Since she’s not an actual nun.

          But I appreciate the costume and the creative effort behind this look.

          • Schoolbea May 8, 2018 at 12:59 am #

            No, I didn’t mean it’s offensive. I meant literal. I said there are degrees to a costume being a costume. For this gala, I like something that interprets the theme, but some details are more literal and some are more subtle. And some people like the literal ones, some others prefer the subtle ones.

            • Christine May 8, 2018 at 1:49 am #

              Ahhh gotcha.

    So creative with the tear drop! She’s like a chic priestess. I like it!

  21. quimby May 8, 2018 at 12:27 am #

    This is very literal, but she’s the exact right person to pull it off.

  22. Chris May 8, 2018 at 12:25 am #

    I honestly dig it, she totally pulls it off, the styling makes it interesting.

  23. EmmaWoodhouse May 8, 2018 at 12:25 am #

    Very on theme, love the teardrop. Great touch. Rosaries as an “accessory” bother me but overall this is a great look.

  24. Original Meme May 8, 2018 at 12:23 am #

    She stuck to the theme but I don’t like the sheer part of the dress. It looks silly.

  25. AnnaBanana May 8, 2018 at 12:21 am #

    Love this, the halo and the rosary are the perfect accessories. Love a celeb who sticks to the theme
