The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of those who joined Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kate Beckinsale and Nicole Kidman on the red carpet for the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at The Old Vic Theatre on Sunday (November 22) in London, England.

Salma Hayek: As you know I’m a huge advocate for Sexy Salma, but ay caramba this is perhaps a bit too much. As pretty as this Alexander McQueen ruffled gown is, ALL I can focus on are the twins.

Gemma Arterton: Like Lea Seydoux, Gemma always seems to have magic moments in Prada, but I wasn’t so enamoured by this look on this occasion. The colour is pretty, but the style fell way short for an awards ceremony.

Ruth Wilson: There was plenty of glamour imbued in Ruth’s Reem Acra gown which sparkled under the bright lights on the red carpet. Ruth usually takes a risk, so this was a rare princess moment which she totally nailed.

Ciara In Reem Acra – 2015 American Music Awards

Ciara In Reem Acra - 2015 American Music Awards

Ciara attended the 2015 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 22) in Los Angeles, California.

When I saw the singer wearing this sheer embellished Reem Acra Fall 2015 gown, two feelings came over me: disappointment and extreme boredom.

This style of dress has been done to death.

Not only by the likes of Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian, but also by Ciara herself at the 2013 American Music Awards in J. Mendel and the 2013 VMAs in Givenchy Couture just to name a few.

Factor in the unfortunately triangle beaded placement between her legs and this is a no from me.

Jena Malone In Reem Acra – ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Berlin Premiere

Jena Malone In Reem Acra - 'The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 2' Berlin Premiere

Jena Malone was in a galaxy of her own at ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ at CineStar on Wednesday (November 4) in Berlin, Germany.

The actress wore a voluminous, floor-skimming Reem Acra Spring 2016 creation that oozed with romantic fantasy and a slightly otherworldly vibe.

Shimmering with metallic embroidered, spiderweb-like netting and floral applique, the gown was nothing short of a piece of artistry.

Her styling likewise served the look well; the clutch proved a seamless addition while sleek hair and makeup and a jewel-less approach ensured that the dress was at its uncluttered best.

Gwen Stefani In Reem Acra – 2015 UCLA Neurosurgery Visionary Ball

Gwen Stefani In Reem Acra - 2015 UCLA Neurosurgery Visionary Ball

Gwen Stefani attended the 2015 UCLA Neurosurgery Visionary Ball held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (October 29) in Beverly Hills, California.

Usually I am a big fan of Gwen’s style, but there isn’t a single thing I can praise here.

I have no words for the hideousness of her Reem Acra Spring 2016 multi-striped dress.

The styling which includes heavy bangles, fishnet tights and an Anya Hindmarch clutch adds to the perplexity.

Tessa Thompson In Reem Acra – The Broad Museum Black Tie Inaugural Dinner

Tessa Thompson In Reem Acra - The Broad Museum Black Tie Inaugural Dinner

Tessa Thompson attended The Broad Museum Black Tie Inaugural Dinner at The Broad on Thursday (September 17) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Reem Acra tea-length dress lavishly embroidered with gold lace which she styled with a Swarovski clutch.

While there is nothing wrong with this fairytale offering, I much prefer Tessa in contemporary looks like her Ungaro dress from earlier in the week.
