Usually we introduce the actress and then the dress, but this time around this dress needs to be introduced first!
Reem Acra dressed actress Lily Collins in a stunning full length evening gown. A dress that may sound complicated but actually worked beautifully. The sheer panelled and lace dress was further embellished with a jewelry-like cascade of embroidered chains. The retro style of her hair, perfectly finishing off the stunning look.
The actress who was attending the premiere of her latest movie, ‘Rules don’t Apply’ in LA at the AFI fest on November 10, 2016 intelligently kept her jewelry to a minimum, allowing the jewel like embroidery to take center stage.
Other than the obvious intricate detail of the embroidery, what worked wonders for this dress was the mix of hard and soft. The barely there lace and sheer panelling was almost grounded with the elaborate embroidery that from afar almost appeared like metallic chains. Its always tricky getting the balance right, Reem Acra nailed this one !
