Case of the Mondays? Step right up! One look at Lily Collins’ insanely romantic, violet ombre Elie Saab dress should give you blissful fashion fantasies for a week, at least!

The brunette beauty, 25, chose the Lebanese designer’s ombre stunner for the 9th Rome Film Festival, where she premiered her latest film, Love, Rosie, on Sunday, Oct. 19.

Collins’ fabulous duds boasted a black bustier with a geometric neckline and an open back. The Elie Saab creation also had a Watteau cape train that flowed behind the Mortal Instruments star, thanks to the strong Roman winds. Platform heels by Brain Atwood, earrings by Normal Silverman, rings by Vita Fede and EF Collection, and her handsome costar, The Hunger Games' Sam Claflin, on her arm, made for a very dreamy ensemble.

And her beauty choices added even more glamour to an already stunning look! The Blindside star styled her chocolate bob into curls, deeply parted to one side. She also rocked a deep berry lip, a strong complement to her beloved bold brows.

Earlier that day, Collins donned another statement-making ensemble. The star, who recently revealed that she had been up for one of the leading roles in Gossip Girl, modeled Pamella Roland separates—an ab-flaunting white crop top and matching wide-leg pants—for the Love, Rosie photocall. Casually coiled hair, plus a bright red lip for a pop of color, completed the outfit.

And clearly, Collins was just as enthralled by her wildly chic Roman holiday. “You swept me off my feet Rome. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most wondrous, magical evening,” she wrote, captioning an Instagram photo of herself, waltzing in evening attire.
