Some people don’t like princess gowns. Those are not my people. And never was there a clearer litmus test than Lily Collins’ Zuhair Murad couture moment on last night’s Golden Globes red carpet.
It’s lace. It’s floral. It’s pink. It’s bell-shaped. It doesn’t get more unapologetically femme than this, and who better to carry that off than best actress nominee Collins, who brings the perfect amount of edge with bright red lips and a shoulder blade tattoo.
It reminds me of Vanessa Hudgens’ equally dreamy Naeem Khan gown from the 2015 VMAs, which was cut from a similar proverbial cloth (not literal cloth, though hey, they’re close enough in color that who could blame you for assuming).
