Okay, okay, so nude may not be the most exciting of colors to wear on the red carpet, but it does have its moments (hello, Kardashians!), And although we do love the sheer/nude look as much as anyone else, what we’re extra thankful for today is the fact that Lily Collins just showed us how to make nude look exciting at Cannes, and now we are changed for good.
The actress and model wore a nude and white striped off-the-shoulder top and a nude sequin skirt (both by Johanna Ortiz) and lets just say, if there’s something Lily wasn’t, it’s boring.
Instead, thanks to the patterns and overstated textures, Lily Collins’ Cannes look felt anything but minimal.
Lily’s top featured ruffled sleeves, which added an extra dose of glam to the neutral-heavy look. And thanks to her sequin midi skirt and matching platform pumps, this look has even more va-va-voom!
Lily’s hair was worn slicked back in a high pony, accented only by her bold brows and the brightest cherry red lip. And honestly that’s the way to rock neutrals! What’s the point if you’re not going to have a pop of color on your lips?
