Alicia Vikander embraced a minimalist aesthetic at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at The Royal Opera House in London on Sunday evening.

While most of us would have expected the BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee to glam it up on the red carpet for the big night, the young Swedish actress chose to keep things relatively restrained.

Alicia wore a black sleeveless round-neck Christian Dior gown with an asymmetrical hem and eye-catching cut-out back detail. She teamed her look with a pair of classic satin pointy-toe pumps and dangling earrings.

This choice may not have been high on impact, but I think this red carpet rising star looked stunning even without the bells and whistles. If I could change anything, it would be to infuse a bit of drama to her hair style.
