Lily James surprises in sheer princess dress – and looks seriously beautiful
Lily James ensured all eyes were on her when she walked the red carpet at the 2023 Critics' Choice Awards. The Pam & Tommy star was a vision in a sheer Oscar de la Renta gown with dramatic bow embellishment – and we can't get over how beautiful she looked.
The 33-year-old actress stole the show in her sultry tulle dress, which featured an A-line skirt and a strapless cut. The wow-worthy number gave off total princess vibes and was cinched in at the waist with an oversized black bow. Lily’s beautiful gown created the illusion of a totally sheer finish thanks to a nude slip underneath – and she looked incredible as she led the best-dressed stars on the red carpet.

She told ELLE: "I felt really powerful. Pamela is so beautiful, she's a goddess but it's her confidence, her sexuality, her celebration of who she is and really owning that, that was the hardest bit for me to get.
