Keira Knightley In Valentino Couture – ‘The Imitation Game’ Opening Night Gala Screening

Keira Knightley In Valentino Couture - 'The Imitation Game' Opening Night Gala Screening

Keira Knightley stepped onto the rain-drenched red carpet for the opening night gala screening of ‘The Imitation Game’ during the London Film Festival, held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Wednesday (October 8) in London, England.

Serving up a Valentino double, the British actress selected a look from the Fall 2014 Couture collection.

Your feelings were muted for the photocall, so how does this luxe embroidered gold lace tiered couture gown fare?

Even if this is a typical Keira Knightley look, I’m far from disappointed.

I wanted elegance and romance with a touch of intrigue; she delivered.

The intrigue came via her strange choice of red suede Charlotte Olympia ‘The Lady is a Vamp’ pumps and those breathtaking David Morris earrings.

Keira Knightley In Valentino – ‘The Imitation Game’ London Film Festival Photocall

Keira Knightley In Valentino - 'The Imitation Game' London Film Festival Photocall

Keira Knightley attended the photocall for ‘The Imitation Game’ which opened the 58th BFI London Film Festival held at Corinthia Hotel London this afternoon (October 8) in London, England.

The actress wore a Valentino Spring 2015 floral and arabesque-print short-sleeved frock with a pleated skirt, pointy collar (of course) and delicate embroidery.

Fashionably chic, as always, this piece offers a pleasurably fun undertone while making an adept grown-up statement.

Simple black pumps would’ve been an easy choice; however, Keira opted for Charlotte Olympia ‘Auspicious Debbie’ pumps featuring a gold-embroidered dragon on black satin, with a heart-shaped platform sole for a unique and quirky finish.

Emma Thompson In Maria Grachvogel – ‘Saving Mr Banks’ London Film Festival Closing Night Gala Premiere

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 In Kooples - BFI London Film Festival Awards

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?
