Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Reem Acra – BAFTA Brits To Watch Event

Best Newcomer Award
Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked stunning on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event in LA last night.

The “Larry Crowne” British actress took my breath away wearing an electric blue Reem Acra Resort 2012 gown with a twisted bodice and draped skirt.

For a newcomer she certainty has a great sense style and is perfectly poised on the red carpet.

I love how her gold clutch complements the gold details on the sleeves of her gown.

Definitely one to watch in the future.

    Such an elegant fit, and the colour is divine on her.

  14. anamika July 10, 2011 at 18:33 #

    I love the hair
    to the make up and sweet lips
    earrings
    and plunging decollete in “V” that enhances her shoulders and her breast
    great flesh show without falling into vulgarity
    the waist line fits her height
    bravo perfect for me :-)

    The only word I find truly befitting for thi sis sublime. The dress, the fact that sh echose to go for something that highlights her but isn’t too look at me. Her skin colour is alos so incredibly beautiful and would go with aything, so good on her for chosing something other than the standard white/nude, which would ahve been a safer choice, i think. She looks really beautiful.

  16. Pati July 10, 2011 at 20:04 #

    This is so beautiful! Love everything about this look.

  17. anna July 10, 2011 at 20:21 #

  18. Emmeline July 10, 2011 at 21:42 #

    Absolutely beautiful! I didn’t pay much attention to this dress when I first saw it on the model, but Gugu completely brings it to life.

  19. bec July 11, 2011 at 02:53 #
