There's an art to making the whole 'I-just-rolled-out-of-bed-wearing-this-old-thing' look work (especially on the red carpet), but some girls have a knack for it. And while not many women can pull off a vintage nightie at a movie premiere, if anyone can, it's quirky British actress Imogen Poots.
At the London opening of Filth, Imogen just might have convinced us to abandon our love of new-age, avant garde gowns in favor of frocks that are far more retro. Granted, her silky, lace-trimmed slipdress looks like something that's currently balled up at the bottom of our lingerie drawer, but next time we pull it out, we'll certainly look at it in an entirely different light and consider wearing it out one night.
You too? Here's the lesson to be learned here: whenever you need to jazz up a shabby-chic outfit in an instant, accessorize with red. See what a pair of cherry-color platform sandals and a lashing of candy apple-color lipstick (and ruby nail polish) did for Imogen's vintage look? She went from dated to dolled up in 60 seconds flat.
