Rita Wilson In Tom Ford – ‘Captain Phillips’ London Film Festival Premiere

Rita Wilson In Tom Ford - 'Captain Phillips' London Film Festival Premiere

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson attended the European premiere of ‘Captain Phillips’ on the opening night of the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at Odeon Leicester Square this evening.

Both wearing black, Tom opted for a classic tux, while Rita’s look had a bit more Ka-Pow.

Taking the Helen Mirren ‘dress-as-young-as-you-feel’ approach, the actress wore black Tom Ford Fall 2013 long sleeve gown with a striking multi-coloured ‘Flash! Bang! Wallop!’ sequin motif on the hip.

A simple ponytail and a black-and-white clutch completed her look.

I know many of you don’t share my enthusiasm for Rita’s red carpet style; so how does this one fare for you?

Holliday Grainger In Peter Pilotto – ‘Great Expectations’ London Film Festival Premiere

On yet another cold and rainy night during the London Film Festival, Holliday Grainger added a burst of colour to the dull red carpet.

She wore a Peter Pilotto Resort 2013 ensemble consisting of a blue sleeveless, printed, collared silk blouse featuring contrast embroidery at the yoke and a fitted pencil skirt with an equally striking print and a short side slit.

Opting not to wear the Nicholas Kirkwood heels as worn by the model in the lookbook, Holliday opted for simple black Mary Jane pumps.

Thankfully because of her bold print dress, her Charlotte Olympia ‘Pandora’ Perspex clutch, her interesting cuff and the way she’s working that bold dark lip colour, the blah shoes aren’t that much of an issue.

A spiky topknot completed her fashion-forward (sans Mary Janes) look.

Gemma Arterton In Prada – ‘Song For Marion’ London Film Festival Premiere

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.

Lea Seydoux In Louis Vuitton – ‘Sister’ London Film Festival Premiere

After Lea Seydoux’s last red-carpet appearance which saw her sporting blue hair, the French actress thankfully returned to her blonde roots.

She could’ve almost been mistaken for Michelle Williams, sporting a pixie cut and a Louis Vuitton Resort 2013 dress with a Peter Pan collar.

Her beige-and-white dress with fringe detailing on the pocket flaps was styled with hot-pink Jimmy Choo pumps which match her striking lip colour.

An Olympia Le-Tan clutch and diamond-encrusted earrings completed her look.

Marion Cotillard In Azzaro – 56th BFI London Film Festival: Screen Talk

Following the premiere of Marion Cotillard’s latest movie ‘Rust and Bone’ on Saturday evening during the London Film Festival, the French actress attended a ‘Screen Talk’ on Sunday afternoon at the BFI Southbank.

Marion took time out from wearing Dior to don this Azzaro Fall 2011 dress.

Her black-and-white dotted dress was accented with a black bow tied to her waist.

Much like the previous look, I find this to be below par for Marion. We all know she can do so much better.

Christian Louboutin black wedges, minimal makeup and a simple bun with side-swept bangs provided the finishing touches.

Elle Fanning In Rochas – ‘Ginger and Rosa’ London Film Festival Premiere

In an attempt to defy her teenage years, Elle Fanning looked very regal when she hit the red carpet at the Odeon West End for the 2012 London Film Festival ‘Ginger and Rosa’ premiere on Saturday evening.

Even the rain couldn’t dampen her parade as she looked gorgeous wearing a Rochas Resort 2013 floral print colourful gown with a sheer yoke and lace neckline.

This is a surprisingly weather-appropriate look for a Resort dress, especially as she wisely kept the mint green cardigan, as worn in the look book, (which I thought was a cape at first) thrown over her shoulders.

Long blonde straight locks, which, unlike her sister, she switches up from time to time, completed her look.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – ‘Rust And Bone’ London Film Festival Premiere

Marion Cotillard attended the 2012 London Film Festival on Saturday evening for the premiere of her latest movie, ‘Rust and Bone’.

Even though Jennifer Lawrence is the new face of Miss Dior handbags, no one else (aside from Charlize Theron, perhaps) was going to be the first to wear a look from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 collection.

Marion opted for one of the simpler pieces, wearing a black sleeveless dress featuring a skirt with a pleated back and asymmetrical hemline.

Never one to disappoint when it comes to accessories, Marion wore two-tone Dior Spring 2013 pointed-toe pumps and carried a black Dior clutch.

A wavy hairstyle, flawless makeup and Chopard jewels completed her London premiere look.

The shoes are the only thing really getting me through this look, as the rest feels a bit too bare.

Helena Bonham Carter In Marc Jacobs – ‘Frankenweenie 3D’ London Film Festival Premiere

Helena Bonham Carter and director Tim Burton attended the premiere of ‘Frankenweenie 3D’ which opened the 56th BFI London Film Festival at the Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday evening.
The actress wore a familiar Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 dress.

This is the second outing for this black-and-white floral lace dress, because Helena wore it to the 2011 SAG Awards, but on this occasion she styled it with a black silk bolero.

There was a time when this sort of thing would’ve been frowned upon, but the Duchess has made reruns perfectly acceptable.

Helena’s signature curls were piled on top of her head, with kohl-rimmed eyes, light pink lips and pearl drop earrings completing her look.

Joely Richardson In Marchesa – ‘Anonymous’ London Film Festival Premiere

Joely Richardson glided down the red carpet for the ‘Anonymous’ London Film Festival premiere which took place at the Empire Leicester Square last night.

She opted to wear a failsafe Marchesa strapless tulle-and-lace gown with an embroidered waistband.

Old Hollywood retro waves captured the essence of the dark romanticism of her look.

She accessorized with Bochic for Annoushka earrings and a sparkling clutch.
