The 'Mad Men' actress celebrated her new made-for-TV movie in a polished black and white number topped with fresh fuchsia lips.

The Dress: A black and white cut-out cocktail sheath from Pamella Roland's spring 2013 collection. 

The Wearer: Newly engaged actress Alexis Bledel. 

The Event: The April 17 premiere of Bledel's Hallmark Hall of Fame made-for-TV movie, Remember Sunday, in which she plays a "down on her luck waitress who meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk" who, alas, goes through a Groundhog Day/50 First Dates type of situation every single day and wakes up each morning with a completely wiped out memory. The movie premieres this Sunday, April 21. And yes, we already have the couch fired up and the popcorn and tissues on standby. 

The Reason We Dig: Bledel usually dresses in flattering cuts that come with little fanfare. And this simple, yet striking black and white number sticks to that theme, while managing to feel sophisticated and young at the same time. But our most favorite part of Bledel's look isn't actually her dress at all, but her fuchsia lips that keep her natural beauty in tact while providing a fresh color pop. We can't wait to try out the shade for spring, stat.
