2010 London Film Festival “Conviction” Premiere – Minnie Driver In Marchesa

In my haste to get my weekend started last night, I didn’t see the pictures of Minnie Driver at the 2010 London Film Festival premiere for “Conviction” until this morning.

My jaw dropped to the floor as Minnie looks stunning wearing a Marchesa Resort 2011 gown.

Her cerulean blue draped chiffon column gown has a beautiful Egyptian embroidered collar and a wrap around detail at the waist.

I’m glad she only opted to use the black and not the gold.

I also love that she hid the black straps we see on the runway under her collar making her gown a halter gown.

This is how you modify a look from the runway for the better – take note Katie Holmes and Kerry Washington.

Yes I’m gushing over this look as Minnie has never looked more radiant.

I wish I’d seen this last night, but seeing Minnie now would you have voted her as your BDOTW?

    I voted for Monique, but this is amazing. I thought I was never going to see this dress on the red carpet because I thought some might think it was too much of a costume, but it is modified AMAZINGLY. Good Job Minnie

    I would have definitely voted for her as the other looks were underwhelming. She looks beautiful, and that is a beautiful dress.
    I agree about the black straps being hidden. The straps took away from the pretty neckline.

    Maybe yes FC, I would voted for her. But couldn’t put this into next week poll?

  4. aiyu October 16, 2010 at 11:23 #

    She looks beautiful, and I agree that her styling is better than the runway version.
    But my vote would still go to Keira for BDOTW :)

  5. CASS October 16, 2010 at 11:42 #

    Make an exception – BDOTW for next week, she looks amazing. Love the colour and the dress.

  6. sara October 16, 2010 at 12:11 #

    i prefer the dress with the black straps, because they enhance the massai african touch!!

  7. DM October 16, 2010 at 12:19 #

    Oh yes I would have voted her. One small wish I have is that she had used the gold belt. But overall the modification is superb, and she looks SO good in this stunning color and design that I will just sigh and say: BDOTW that never made it to the poll! Haha.

  8. Hannah October 16, 2010 at 12:25 #

    I love this, I still prefer therunway version, and Iprobably would still have voted Keira, but she looks incredible.

  9. Alicat October 16, 2010 at 13:11 #

    Perfect in every way.

    • Marvel October 17, 2010 at 22:29 #

      Completely agree with what you said. Faultless

  10. ben October 16, 2010 at 13:16 #

    Definately, i would have sooo voted for her in BDOTW! Can we make an exeption and put her in next week’s poll?

  11. Gretta October 16, 2010 at 13:32 #

    I agree with above, she should definitely make an appearance in next week’s poll. Absolutely beautiful.

  12. sonia October 16, 2010 at 14:00 #

    nop, in my opinion the collar doesn’t work with the straps under when you get a closer look.

    • Ev October 17, 2010 at 02:32 #

      Ditto.

  13. Ashley October 16, 2010 at 14:14 #

    So nice to see Minnie back on the red carpet; she looks fabulous!

  14. Karis October 16, 2010 at 14:21 #

    Love love love love love it!

    Put her in next weeks poll :P x

  15. june October 16, 2010 at 14:36 #

    i would have voted for minnie in a heartbeat. every modification is one i agree with and they all make her look even better in the dress. that’s what modifications should do

  16. Rachie October 16, 2010 at 14:37 #

    I would vote for her! Absolutely!

  17. bas October 16, 2010 at 14:46 #

    I agree, she should be in next week’s poll

  18. Gigi October 16, 2010 at 15:00 #

    She is amazing. I love those broad shoulders, those gorgeous eyes and that fabulous jawline. To me she looks healthy and fit and fabulous whereas Keira looked scrawny, gaunt and in need of Vitamin D!

  19. asherlev1 October 16, 2010 at 15:03 #

    Everything’s great, but the hair is turning me off for some reason. Idk.

  20. Danika October 16, 2010 at 15:26 #

    Stunning, she would have my vote. Love the colour

  21. Cheryl Wong October 16, 2010 at 15:27 #

    I’ve never seen Minnie look this good. PERIOD.

  22. Suz October 16, 2010 at 15:28 #

    Flawless! Definitely BDOTW.

  23. susan October 16, 2010 at 15:34 #

    yes vote for sure!

  24. nicky October 16, 2010 at 15:41 #

    she looks fabulous. love the colours. i wouldve still voted for keira though!

    • Giuseppi October 17, 2010 at 02:08 #

      That’s where I was on this- she looks amazing, but I think I still like Keira Knightly’s Chanel a little better. This is def a good modification

  25. mol October 16, 2010 at 16:06 #

    Al the modifications were excellent choices for her figure and height (IMO). I think I would have stayed with Keira but Minnie would have been right up there in my potential picks.

  26. lukie October 16, 2010 at 18:11 #

    Yes she is so BDOTW!!!!!

  27. Hisadora October 16, 2010 at 19:12 #

    Totally. I would certainly vote for her, she’s glowing here!

  28. Jones19 October 16, 2010 at 19:53 #

    Wowza she looks stunning! I wish she would have kept the gold part of the belt though but she made the right choice making it a halter.

  29. Sally October 16, 2010 at 19:59 #

    Fantastic! I agree with the other remarks; this look belongs in next weeks poll.

  30. laura D October 16, 2010 at 20:06 #

    I love this, and would have voted for her – especially since it’s one of her best looks ever

  31. Michelle. October 16, 2010 at 20:08 #

    Definitely would have voted for her. This look blows the other looks out of the water. You should make an exception and add her to next week’s BDOTW.

  32. em October 16, 2010 at 20:12 #

    wow! she looks amazing – stunning colours on her

  33. nicole October 16, 2010 at 20:31 #

    yesssss for sure!! i love it soo much!

  34. Annie October 16, 2010 at 20:43 #

    Wow! Stunning. Definitely BDOTW.

  35. Moxie October 16, 2010 at 20:55 #

    I agree with the others – put her in next week’s poll, please!

  36. Claudia October 16, 2010 at 21:26 #

    I’d have definitely voted for her. This is the dress I could never expect to look that beautiful
    This is far more BDOTW than the other dresses.
    Even though Keira is overwhelming in Chanel, Minnie deserves to win in Marchesa.

  37. dee October 16, 2010 at 22:32 #

    She looks stunning.

  38. Lou October 16, 2010 at 22:39 #

    Yes, I love the dress and she looks great!!!

  39. Lily October 17, 2010 at 01:17 #

    I loved this look until I saw the second picture. The dress isn’t nearly as impressive close-up. However, Minnie still looks gorgeous!

  40. CreoleLady October 17, 2010 at 01:27 #

    Wow. Bryce, Mo’Nique, Jennifer and now Minnie – love, love the gorgeous saturated color, elegant details and understated accessories. Definitely BDOTW worthy.

  41. amber October 17, 2010 at 02:12 #

    this would have been BDOTW for me.

  42. Kaz October 17, 2010 at 04:11 #

    Definitely BDOTW! Minnie looks amazing, probably the best I’ve ever seen her look. An example of how fabulous it is when everything comes together!

    Do you know what type of shoes she is working, FC?

    Loving this site as always!

  43. Amber October 17, 2010 at 06:02 #

    She looks stunning! I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look so good!

  44. jes October 17, 2010 at 06:30 #

    I think the dress screams PROM…. Not a fan. x

  45. Hannah October 17, 2010 at 06:40 #

    She does look gorgeous! I love that color.

    Will you be posting pics from the Scream Awards?

  46. Ayesha October 17, 2010 at 08:19 #

    love it,modifications work really well!

  47. Emi October 17, 2010 at 13:05 #

    I voted for B.D. Howard, but maybe I would have been undecided. I love how the dress has been modified, even if I like the gold belt. She looks stunning.

  48. wilwarin October 17, 2010 at 13:38 #

    wow this is the best she’s ever looked… it’s amzing… the colour and everything about this dress is divine…
