Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Burberry – The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Burberry - The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at The Old Vic Theatre on Sunday (November 22) in London, England.

The British actress wore a Burberry green floral lace gown flowing with a trailing train which she styled with a box clutch.

I really wanted to love this as the colour it pretty, but I found the dress quite frumpy, ageing and perhaps better suited to someone with 15 years on Gugu.

    The color is very unappealing. And the dress makes this look overall aging and/or dated.

    Gorgeous. Lovely color and she looks beautiful.

    I don’t think the color is that great on her and the gown is not doing her any justice. I agree with everyone else that her face is beautiful.

    I actually think the styling’s to blame…

      I agree. The styling made this look so matronly. I actually do love the gown on her and her face is beautiful.

    The short coctail version of this dress would have workt bether on her.

      Keep in mind that it was absolutely freezing this weekend in London. Poor starlets without coats on!

    I think she looks gorgeous, but mostly because she is gorgeous.

    She needs to be in a big franchise movie, so we could see her being perfect and beautiful during a looong promo tour. 😀

    More pretty than unexciting–I’ll have that!

    It’s too bad, the color is so great on her and it’s a different of what we usually see on the red carpet, but the dress is not working on her.

    Pretty and appropriate but totally unexciting.

    Same for me – I wanted to love it, the color is amazing and I am intrigued, but yeah, it feels frumpy. :/

      +1. Wish it were a bit more fitted through the waist….

      • edie November 23, 2015 at 12:22 #

        If it were more fitted, it would definitely lift the look.

    Very forgettable, but her face is beautiful. As always.
