Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

I’m not much of a TV buff (having only just caught up on ‘Downtown Abbey’) so I haven’t seen Zawe Ashton star in Channel 4’s ‘Fresh Meat’.

Apparently she is rather good in the TV series as Cosmopolitan crowned her ‘Best Newcomer’ at their Ultimate Woman Of The Year Awards, held at the V&A in London last night.

A spot on the BDOTW list could also be on the cards as she looked stunning wearing a Chalayan Fall 2012 gown.

The Hackney-born actress looked statuesque wearing a sultry forest-green one-sleeve gown with a daring plunging neckline, side slit and black satin draped detail over her other shoulder.

Having had a mild obsession with this Fall 2012 collection, I’m glad a piece has finally made it onto the red carpet and been presented so effortlessly.

Taupe pumps, a statement bracelet and a gold clutch completed her look.
