Last night at the Royal Opera House in London, Ruth Wilson collected the Best Actress Award for her role in ‘Anna Christie’ at The Olivier Awards 2012, which recognises excellence in professional theatre.

My wish list for the McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 collection had been a list of Hollywood stars, but it was a Brit (and rightly so) who snagged the first look.

Her layered tulle bustier dress with full skirt black floral velvet appliqués was teamed with an Alexander McQueen clutch, a black McQ cuff and black Alexander McQueen Mary Jane pumps from the Pre-Fall collection.

A side-swept hairstyle and pink lip colour completed her look.
