Stark white is complementary to the widest range of skin tones. This color looks especially stunning against Lilit’s bronzed complexion and dark hair color.
Color choice is imperative to an evening gown and Lilit made an excellent choice.
Lilit’s evening gown presents a unique ball gown silhouette, bra-like bodice with illusion mesh, a dramatic slit extending up to her hip, and intricate detailings throughout the lower bodice.
Lilit definitely embraced the idea of “go BIG or go home.” This gown does not disappoint by any means. The unique features set her apart from the other contestants.
If you had just shown me this gown from the waist down, I would have thought it was completely different. The bodice is comprised of a very feminine and delicate bra-like top over a sheer underlay.
A dramatic slit reaching up to her hip adds even more sex appeal to the overall look. The full skirt adds excellent movement and dimension as she walks.
My only concern with this look is that it overpowers Lilit. A gown should complement the contestant, not distract from the contestant herself.
With such an intricately detailed bodice and high neckline, I like that Lilit chose to style her hair in a glamorous updo. However, with such a delicate gown, I would have liked to see Lilit style her makeup a bit softer. This would have increased the fluidity of her overall look.

I applaud Lilit’s fearless attitude and confident stage presence. This gown is absolutely beautiful; however, I find myself looking more at the gown than at Lilit herself. Unfortunately, it’s a MISS for me.
