The Dress: A lace paneled dress with a bejeweled bra top from Alexander McQueen's pre-spring 2018 collection. 

The Wearer: Amanda Seyfried, who works with longtime stylist Elizabeth Stewart.

The Event: At the First Reformed premiere during the Venice Film Festival on Thursday, where she stepped out on the red carpet with co-star Ethan Hawke.

Why It Matters: Seyfried's latest red-carpet moment is a stunner--a black lace dress that manages to steer clear of the "nearly nude" red carpet trend trope, thanks to a paneled effect, handkerchief hem, and floral crystal embroideries that show off McQueen designer Sarah Burton's extraordinary handiwork. (The pre-spring McQueen collection details were inspired by British folk art and interiors.)

A pair of Chopard earrings, featuring 20.16-carats of amethysts, 22.17-carats of topazes and 3.74-carats of blue sapphires set in 18k white gold, delivered that extra wow factor. Makeup artist Mary Greenwell and hairstylist Giannandrea rounded out the glamorous look with a red lip and textured ponytail, respectively.

New mom Seyfried has been favoring dark hues on the step and repeat lately; she wore black monochromatic dresses for her last two red-carpet appearances prior to the film fest. However, it seems she's starting to embrace the embellishments and patterns again as she stepped out in a playful lipstick-print mini Valentino Resort dress earlier in the day for her film's photo call.
