Lily James is enchanting at Cinderella premiere

Lily James looked like she had just stepped out of a fairytale as she headed to the premiere of Disney's live-action Cinderella, in which she plays the starring role. The 25-year-old was spell-binding in a dazzling silver floor-length gown with an embellished skirt and train, as well as sheer long sleeves with sparkling jewels.

Lily had turned to red carpet king Elie Saab for the stunning dress, which is from the designer's Autumn/Winter 2014 couture collection.

The British beauty also paid a quirky tribute to the classic fairytale with her accessories. Lily rocked a transparent box clutch bag from Charlotte Olympia which features a clock face design, a nod to Cinderella's legendary midnight deadline.

When it came to her shoes, while Lily didn't opt for glass slippers, she still looked enchanting in a pair of nude embellished peep-toe heels featuring butterfly detail.

For her beauty look, the Downton Abbey star channelled old Hollywood glamour with dramatic winged black eyeliner teamed with silver eyeshadow and enviably long eyelashes, completing the look with a slick of pale pink lipstick. She wore her blonde locks up in a sleek chignon, giving fans a peek at her dazzling statement earrings.

The star was in high spirits throughout the evening, laughing with co-stars Cate Blanchett and Richard Madden as well as meeting little girls who had dressed up as princesses for the event, including Mario Lopez's four-year-old daughter Gia.

Meanwhile Cate Blanchett, who stars as Cinderella's evil stepmother, also turned heads at the premiere in an elegant gown with a cream, three-quarter length sleeved bodice and navy blue floor-length skirt. The 45-year-old kept her accessories to a minimum save for a statement necklace, and went make-up free for the evening save for a lick of nude lipgloss, showcasing her natural beauty.
