Bond girl Naomie Harris hit a bright note on the red carpet at the 2013 Elle Style Awards, hosted at the Savoy Hotel in London on Monday night.
Exchanging her power gowns seen on the ‘Skyfall’ promo tour last fall, the British actress selected a more conservative Roksanda Ilincic above-the-ankle dress from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.
Although the generously skirted, swishy look lacked a certain fashion flamboyance, the minimalist approach worked beautifully.
The delightful melon hue was colour-blocked with a flash of neon pink at the back, which injected some fun into the strict lines of this prim and proper design.
Naomie made the dress her own by cinching the waist with a skinny black belt and by swapping those heavy lookbook boots for an ultra-cool pair of black pumps, sculpted with metallic gold cut-outs, by Nicholas Kirkwood. A small Smythson clutch finished the look.
That mortarboard-like cap also had no chance atop her long, glossy locks.
For Naomie, it was a case of fashion kismet. Roksanda Ilincic won the inaugural award for Best Red Carpet Designer at the Elle event.
