Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Gemma Arterton took to the red carpet on Friday night for the London Film Festival premiere of her latest movie, ‘Song for Marion’.

The British beauty braved the rain wearing a sleeveless Prada Fall 2012 coat dress.

Her black look enriched with plexiglass diamond-shaped appliqués was styled with sexy taupe wedges.

Colourful beaded details adorned her footwear ensuring that she sparkled from head-to-toe.

A center-parted bun and rouge lip colour completed her look.

Gemma Arterton attended the premiere of her new movie, Byzantium at the Toronto Film Festival on Sunday in an old school Hollywood Antonio Berardi gown.

And while the Bond actress kept her makeup classic too, with a glamorous cat’s eye and Bordeaux lips, hairstylist Alex Polillo took a more relaxed approach to her hair, opting for a gorgeous beachy wave.

He spoke to us about how he achieved this laid back look:

‘To start I misted her hair with a saltwater spray (try Charlotte Ronson’s A Perfect Mess Beach Hair) and split it into four equal sections. I then braided each section loosely and secured the braids at the bottom.’

‘Next I used a hairdryer to dry the braids and also to give some heat to set the waves. After the hair was completely dry and had cooled down, I unbraided the sections and shook out her hair.’

‘I touched up the super crazy pieces with a large barrel curling iron to give it more of a languid look and then used some Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel styling cream to piece out the texture.’

‘I finished off the look with some Frederik Fekkai Sheer Hold hairspray.’

Gemma Arterton went for black and light grey on the red carpet for the premiere of her film ‘Byzantium’ at the Toronto Film Festival on Sunday.

The actress chose an Antonio Berardi ensemble from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection for the event.

The British actress can be a bit hit and miss on the red carpet, but this time the gown is definitely working for her.

The under-wear-as-outerwear bodice is both pretty and unusual, though an updo would’ve been less of a distraction – as would a clutch instead of the white bag with its long chain strap.

The Cannes festivities continued in France on Monday night as Gemma Arterton attended the IWC Filmmakers Dinner.

The actress looked chic in an embellished Prada Spring 2012 LBD.

Transformed from a bodysuit as presented on the runway, the actress also opted for blue crystals, rather than red, for her step-and-repeat-ready look.

Had she worn a dress with the red crystals, they would have coordinated perfectly with her ruby lip colour.

A messy updo, clunky bag and white Louis Vuitton toe-cap heels add up to some unfortunate styling.

White shoes are becoming quite a trend at Cannes. Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger and Kirsten Dunst have all worn white shoes this week.

After wearing a one of a kind Gucci gown to the world restoration premiere of Sergio Leone’s ‘Once Upon a Time in America’ during Cannes Film Festival on Friday evening, Gemma Arterton opted for a runway look for the Gucci/Vanity Fair dinner party on Saturday.

Her Fall 2012 brandy iris printed silk georgette long sleeved shirt with matching brandy iris printed silk georgette pants was a much better look for the British actress.

It almost has a PJ feel to it, so she was very much on-trend.

With her hair pulled back into a simple ponytail, she accessorized with Gucci 18k yellow gold jewellery, and a Gucci black crocodile ‘Tigrette’ clutch with enamel tiger head detail from the Spring 2012 collection.
