The Internet basically blew up this week when everyone saw what actress Lily James wore on the red carpet for the premiere of movie Cinderella. With a fairy tale like Cinderella that’s all about the dress and shoes that the main character wears, transforming her on the outside into the princess that she is inside, it was of course without question that we were excited to see what the actress who plays Cinderella, Lily, would wear for the premiere of her film. But, with red carpet looks rarely ever holding the theme of the movie or event, we weren’t holding our breath. Much to our (happy) surprise, Lily James looked exactly like Cinderella walking the red carpet for the premiere of the Disney movie! Check her out in all her beauty below!
The beautifully adorned dress dress by Elie Saab had Lily looking like she should be floating in the air! This red carpet look truly shows that she is Cinderella and makes us so excited to see the film.
Plus, she wore Christian Louboutin high heels that basically looked like glass slippers. Could the outfit be any more perfect? Oh wait.. it can be…
She even accessorized with a clock purse by Charlotte Olympia! Because… when the clock strikes midnight…
Lily James’ red carpet look was so perfect from every aspect! Since it’s such a unique dress (and accessories), this is one that’s hard to copy for prom. But, we have your back! While there isn’t an exact prom dress that mimics Lily’s look, there are a few that take cues from it. And, there are even some shoes and purses that take cues from Lily’s outfit! Check them all out below.
