Lucy Hale heats things up in a Le­banese minidress

Arab News - - Finally - Arab News Dubai

US ac­tress Lucy Hale walked the red car­pet at the Los An­ge­les pre­miere of her lat­est film in a strik­ing minidress by Le­banese de­signer Ge­orges Chakra late last week.

The ac­tress, who shot to fame for play­ing the role of Aria Mont­gomery in the TV se­ries “Pretty Lit­tle Liars,” turned heads at the pre­miere in an or­ange en­sem­ble on Thurs­day.

The fit­ted, sheer minidress fea­tured opaque pip­ing across the bodice and an or­ange-and-black feath­ered trim on the skirt.

The fash­ion house ap­proved of the look and took to In­sta­gram to ap­plaud Hale’s choice of at­tire.

“@lucy­hale looked fiery at the pre­miere of ‘The Uni­corn,’ wear­ing an or­ange vel­vet cock­tail dress with a color block feath­ered hem,” the de­signer’s team posted on In­sta­gram.

The dress hails from Ge­orge Chakra’s 2017 fall/win­ter cou­ture col­lec­tion and seems to have sparked a heated de­bate among Hale and her style team.

“The de­bate of ‘was this dress red or or­ange?’ con­tin­ues. Let’s take a poll. I say or­ange,” Hale cap­tioned a snap of the dress on her In­sta­gram ac­count.

She chose to wear the eye-catch­ing out­fit to the pre­miere of “The Uni­corn,” in which she stars along­side Ni­cholas Ruther­ford and Lau­ren Lap­kus.

Di­rected by Robert Schwartz­man, the film fol­lows an en­gaged woman who learns that her par­ents have a lessthan-con­ven­tional se­cret to their last­ing mar­riage. The plot un­winds as the woman and her fiancé set out on a wild night that ex­poses prob­lems in their re­la­tion­ship.

The film is set to be re­leased in US the­aters on Feb. 1.

Chakra is no stranger to Hol­ly­wood and has been lauded by the who’s who of the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

Lily Collins, who starred in

2017’s “To the Bone,” chose a stun­ning gown by Chakra, with a sparkling pur­ple skirt and off-the-shoul­der black bodice for the an­nual Gov­er­nors Awards in Los An­ge­les.

The de­signer also shut down the red car­pet at Oc­to­ber’s Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards, where singing su­per­star Jen­nifer Lopez wore a hot pink gown by the fash­ion heavy­weight. The plung­ing neck­line and barely-there back turned heads, as did the flow­ing fab­ric and high split in the skirt.

Bol­ly­wood star Priyanka Cho­pra, who made head­lines around the world with her mar­riage to US pop star Nick Jonas in De­cem­ber, also turned to Chakra while on her in­ter­na­tional pre-wed­ding bach­e­lorette tour.

While on hol­i­day in Am­s­ter­dam with her friends and fam­ily mem­bers, Cho­pra took to In­sta­gram to show off a feath­ered minidress by Chakra, straight from his spring 2018 haute cou­ture col­lec­tion.

The del­i­cate dress was en­crusted with crys­tals and se­quins and fea­tured a feath­ered cape, which she paired with white Chris­tian Louboutin heels and a white faux fur coat.
