Forget Emily in Paris! On a recent outing, Lily Collins looked more like Tim Burton’s macabre heroine Wednesday Addams than she did our much-loved ditsy expat. The star is currently in Sweden to celebrate the Italian fashion brand Max Mara’s Resort 2024 collection, and on the first night, Collins looked positively angelic in a white and silver mesh gown paired with a Midsommar-inspired floral garland and beachy mermaid waves. But it was her second look, which she wore to the brand’s presentation, that was a real shift in direction for the star.
Looking deliciously gothic in all-black, Collins teamed a sheer turtleneck with a high-shine oversized belt and sculptural brocade skirt. She embraced the dark side even further with a vampy rouge noir lip, a burnt orange eye, and an intricate braided updo. A marked departure from her usual loose lengths, Collins made a dramatic statement with this Mike Desir creation which takes two plaits from the sides and twists them together at the top. With this punky hairstyle, she is the ultimate goth girl pin-up.
Collins isn’t the only celebrity channeling their inner goth. It was only recently that actor Lucy Boynton took to the red carpet with her own version of elevated emo, thanks to her smoky charcoal eye and the tear-like jewel on her lower lash line. Which can only mean one thing: hot goth summer is upon us.
