Zawe Ashton In Chalayan – British Independent Film Awards 2012

Zawe Ashton was challenging for the ‘Most Promising Newcomer’ of the year award when she stepped onto the red carpet at Old Billingsgate Market for the British Independent Film Awards 2012 yesterday evening.

The British actress has pretty much worn Hussein Chalayan exclusively this year for both her red carpet and TV appearances.

On this occasion she opted for a more sculptural piece from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection.

Her charcoal one-shoulder dress, which appears to have a slight modification around the centre part of the look, was amped up with striking red pumps and a silver Jimmy Choo clutch.

This look proves that edgy can be elegant.

    This looks better on her than the model. I like it.

    A huge improvement from the model–so flattering and you said it, elegant and edgy. My only wish is that she had styled her hair more sleekly and gone with a brighter red pump.

    I prefer the runway presentation. That shoulder bit bothers me on Zawe.

    Wow! She looks amazing! Even more impressive when you compare her to her ‘Fresh Meat’ alter ego! BDOTW candidate??

    Zawe and Chalayan are great pairing from what we’ve seen so far. I like how she style it to give a cool factor. The dress is great and shines beautifully on the runway.

    I don’t really care for the dress, but she’s absolutely gorgeous. I hope we get to see more of her.

    What a killer body! If I were a designer I’d throw gowns at her for the opening of a supermarket.
