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 less-than-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.
In late November, British-American actress 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.
