Evangeline Lilly Makes Her Return To The Red Carpet In Dreamy Silver Gown

We don't get to see the gorgeous Evangeline Lilly on the red carpet very often, but if Monday night's appearance is anything to go by, then good things do come to those who wait.

The 34-year-old actress, best known for her starring role in Lost, added more than a sprinkling of magic to the black, leaf-strewn carpet at the premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug in Los Angeles.

Evangeline's dramatic grey Catherine Deane gown is the perfect gown for a winter premiere - beautiful, icy elegance at its finest. The form-fitting, laser-cut beaded bodice and frothy off-white skirt is a decadent, eye-catching choice. We love that she's kept her beauty look low key too, with the addition of a loose fishtail plait.

We'd happily replicate this look for a fancy Christmas shindig. However, given that our budget probably won't stretch to a show-stopping red-carpet gown, it's more likely that we'll find the festive frock of our dreams in our party dress gallery. See if you can find one that floats your yuletide boat too - we bet you do.
