December 2, 2019 Runway To Red Carpet

Lily James Sleek Black Velvet Dress For The 2019 British Independent Film Awards

Lily James In Alessandra Rich - 2019 British Independent Film Awards

Before tonight’s British Fashion Awards, was the 2019 British Independent Film Awards held at Old Billingsgate on Sunday (December 1) in London.

Lily James who is known for her love of floral prints dresses, summery hues and Burberry, served up something unrecognisable on this occasion.

My first thought when I saw this Alessandra Rich Resort 2020 velvet dress was how much it reminded me of L’Wren Scott’s style of design, with the high collar, long-sleeves, and contrast cuffs which many regarded a ‘schoolmarmish.’

I really like this on Lily, mostly because it elegant and sleek, plus it’s both weather and season appropriate.

Where do you stand on this look?

    Slightly off topic – Did you see Duchess Catherine (nee Kate Middleton) in red Alessandra Rich dress – previously worn by Leighton Meester – baking for charity?

    I was thinking Chanel Couture for some reason. I think she pulls it off and looks fashionable without it looking costumey. I would change the shoes for ones without the thick ankle straps.

    It would have been fine if it wasn’t so tight at the waist.

    I think she looks divineeeeeeeee!

    i’m biased because I love lily james but I feel like the styling and attitude takes it out of costume territory and into chic

    I love this. All those button and the satin cuffs. Love.

    I see the priest correlations lol but this comes off as quite chic to me, love her hair like that too.

    Its a lil too nun habit or priestly for my taste. Stiff. and I dont like the thick shoe bands.

    I think Lily carries this off well except I find the shoes too heavy, but a sandal doesn’t feel right either.

    Love it
    She wears it better than the model

    For me this looks too much like she’s cosplaying a catholic priest.

      For me too.
