Emma Thompson In Maria Grachvogel - 'Saving Mr Banks' London Film Festival Closing Night Gala Premiere

Emma Thompson joined Lily Allen and Ruth Wilson on the red carpet for the Closing Night Gala premiere of ‘Saving Mr Banks’ during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Sunday evening.

I was delighted to see Emma having fun with fashion. I’m sure many would’ve expected her to wear some sad sack of a dress, but she surprised everyone by wearing a Maria Grachvogel Fall 2013 ensemble.

The look consisted of a silk-organza reflective branches-print blouse with an ethereal, filmic quality styled with a dramatic black jacquard A-line skirt with a shorter front to show off her ankle boots.

I was going to give her full marks for pulling off such a tricky look until I got to the shoes. Open-toe or strappy sandals would’ve elongated her legs.

Following the ‘Locke’ premiere on Friday evening, Ruth Wilson was back on the red carpet (alongside Lily Allen) for the Closing Night Gala premiere of ‘Saving Mr Banks’ during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Sunday evening.

The British actress wore a Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture strapless fitted midnight-blue bustier dress with orange, cobalt-blue and red brushstrokes.

An oversized oval-shaped sapphire cuff and black mesh Dior pumps with a sculptured heel accessorized the look, complementing the edgier vibe of the Dior piece.

On this occasion the hair was thankfully much improved.

Do you love the Dior look on Ruth or had you earmarked it for Marion Cotillard? I know I had.

Saoirse Ronan joined Joanne Froggatt on the red carpet Saturday evening for the BFI London Film Festival Awards held at the Banqueting House in London.

The Irish actress opted for a tailored velvet lapel suit from The Kooples Fall 2013 collection. She feminized the suit with a sheer lace top in the same burgundy hue.

Lace, open-toe heels courtesy of Nicholas Kirkwood accessorized her chic look along with a selection of rings.

Opting to keep her makeup light, Saoirse completed her look with a light pink lip colour.

Were you hoping for something more glam for this awards ceremony, or do you love this for its chic tailoring and fall-like hue?

Lily Allen In Chanel – ‘Saving Mr Banks’ London Film Festival Closing Night Gala Premiere

Lily Allen attended the Closing Night Gala premiere of ‘Saving Mr Banks’ during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at the Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday evening.

After a hiatus to concentrate on being a mother, the singer is back on the red carpet and it appears not much has changed as she’s wearing Chanel once again.

As she’s one of Uncle Karl’s favourite’s, she was able to go back into the archives to select this Chanel Fall 2011 gown featuring a white cap-sleeved top with black lace accents and a chiffon shredded black skirt accented with an embroidered-leaf waistband.

The look was given a pop of colour via her yellow manicure, with a Chanel ‘Lego’ clutch completing the look.

I do love it when celebs go back into the archives. It’s an opportunity for them to pick those pieces we wish we’d seen on the red carpet. Sadly, this wasn’t such an occasion as this dress has been worn twice before.

Zoe Kravitz wore it to the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball and Emilia Clarke wore it to the 2012 SAG Awards.

I wonder who will wear it in 2014?

Friday evening also saw the screening of ‘Locke’ during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at the Odeon West End, which was attended by British actress Ruth Wilson.

Selecting a look from the Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 collection, her shortened black velvet dress featured a diamond-shaped beaded bodice on grey tulle, which she styled with a silver metal Cathedral arch belt.

I love how this look commands your attention. It almost has a warrior feel to it with that armoury, but she lets the look down with the hair.

I won’t call it a hairstyle, because not much has been done to it.

Joanne Froggatt In Hervé Léger & John Rocha – 2013 BFI London Film Festival Awards

Joanne Froggatt In Herve Leger & John Rocha - 2013 BFI London Film Festival Awards

Joanne Froggatt attended the 2013 BFI London Film Festival Awards held at Banqueting House in London on Saturday evening.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star has always been a favourite of mine, and I have full admiration for this look considering the journey it made from the runway to the red carpet.

Her look consists of a Hervé Léger black top and a John Rocha Fall 2013 leaf appliqué skirt which started out its life on the runway as a strapless dress.

Some runway looks are often presented as seen on the runway, so for her stylists to see past the original look to create what we see on Joanne takes great foresight and imagination worthy of praise.

A green cummerbund, David Webb jewels, a simple black clutch, and embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Artifice’ pumps completed her look.

If I dare nitpick, I would’ve love her hair pulled back or up with this look. Otherwise, I’m in total lust.

Lupita Nyong’o took to the red carpet on Friday evening for the ’12 Years A Slave’ premiere during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at Odeon Leicester Square in London.

The beautiful actress wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2014 LBD with cut-outs at the waist and elastic panels. This look continues to prove that this girl has impeccable style worthy of admiration, considering her red carpet journey is still in its infancy.

Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps, Kwiat jewels and a silver clutch completed her look.

Once again, her makeup artist enhanced her radiant skin with shimmering blue eyes and a striking red lip colour.

Is best-dressed newcomer of the year a foregone conclusion, or do you have your eye on someone else?
