Mortal Instruments: City of Bones proved to be a disappointment at the box office but leading lady Lily Collins got plenty of positive attention for the red carpet ensembles she wore to promote the movie in cities around the globe.
The 24-year-old actress landed on the daily Best Dressed lists of British Vogue, W, and InStyle, and even managed to impress E!’s Fashion Police. She also earned the distinction of being crowned Women’s Wear Daily’s “Trendsetter of the Week.” Collins’ stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn – whose list of clients also includes Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Sofia Vergara, and Kim Kardashian – helped the actress pack her suitcases with one fetching red carpet outfit after another. From San Diego Comic Con to Berlin, Madrid, and Fredrikstad, Norway (director Harald Zwart’s hometown), Collins dressed to impress in an array of dramatic gowns, chic separates and sexy frocks.
Despite the less than stellar U.S. debut of Mortal Instruments, producers are optimistic that the movie will strike gold at the global box office and a sequel is reportedly already in the works. Meanwhile, Collins – who recently filmed Love, Rosie with Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) – has landed on the fashion radar, which is often a big step forward for a young actress’ career.
