Why is one of the world's hottest starlets dressed like she's about to inform us our books are overdue?
Not only does Lily Collins look like a woman three times her age, but the style is dangerously close to what our grammar school librarian wore every single day: simple dress, floral over-thing, giant scarf. It's such a quintessential book-lover look that it's like they're teaching it at Library Sciences school!
Of course that's not to suggest that this combo wouldn't be completely chic on an actual librarian. The deep colors are lovely, and the cut is a smart choice for someone carrying around stacks of periodicals all day long.
But it doesn't belong on an actress under age 50. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones star needs to stick to clothing her own size. It's bad enough that librarians get a bad rap for making everyone whisper all the time. The least they can do is own their own style!
