Move over Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence – there’s a new female action hero come style icon in town in the form of 24 year old actress Lily Collins! Looking like a young Alexa Chung, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones protagonist attended the LA press conference for the film last week wearing a classic lace little black dress. With eyebrows to rival those of Cara Delevingne and glossy tousled locks, our latest style crush certainly showed her ex-boyfriend and co-star Jamie Campbell Bower what he was missing!
Opting for seductive, sheer accents like Lily is the perfect way to update and revamp your faithful little black dress this season. For AW13, every fashion house from Marc Jacobs to Prada, Louis Vuitton to Saint Laurent, has experimented with the use of transparent fabrics to tease and seduce, adorning women with delicate floral sheer panelling to unleash their inner femme fatale.
Recreate Lily’s hot-right-now look with our lace little black dress from luxury brand Gorgeous Couture (£159.75). This trend is all about moving to the dark side, so accentuate your LBD with a plethora of rock-chic accessories. Our Zandra Rhodes black and silver bangle (£40), Byrogue knuckle ring (was £125 now £50) and Fiorelli statement ring (£19.95) are the perfect candidates for the job. Just add a pair of killer shoe boots, such as this embellished pair from Moda in Pelle (£129.95), and a pair of black pearl earrings (£17) to complete your A-list look.
