Lily Cole Was Worst Dressed at Elle Style Awards in Velvet Loafers

It’s tough to be be considered as the worst dressed at any event, but it’s even tougher when the affair is one that focus on and celebrates style and fashion.

If you thought Lindsay Lohan looked bad in her stripper heels at the 2015 Elle Style Awards, wait until you see Lily Cole. The 27-year-old model got people wondering what she was thinking when she put on a pink, tent-like Christian Dior dress that did nothing to flatter her figure. Even more mind-boggling was the decision to put a shapeless black jacket over it and pair it with lackluster Valentino loafer pumps with dowdy block heels. Lily also wore her hair loose and un-styled, which pushed her even further into the worst dressed category.

Compared to the sexy and revealing dresses that other attendees wore to the Elle Style Awards, we can see that perhaps Lily was going for a different, against-the-grain look with her sartorial choices. Perhaps she was trying to lump herself together with the Cool It Girls, who brought their own special brand of chic to the style-centric affair.

Lily’s still got a long way to go, though, because these Cool Girls, namely Alexa Chung, Leigh Lezark, Pixie Geldof, and rapper M.I.A., have got the effortlessly stylish look down pat. No in-your-face sexiness, overly made-up debutante looks, or basic ankle-strappies or pumps for these ladies — it’s all about subtle style, personal touches here and there, and loads of individualistic flair.
