Carey Mulligan In Christian Dior – ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ London Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan In Christian Dior - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' London Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan took to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ London Film Festival premiere held at the Odeon Leicester Square.

You will have to search back as far a May to find Carey Mulligan wearing a vibrant hue, so I was delighted she selected something outside of her black, nude, blush, and white comfort zone on this rare occasion.

She wore a Christian Dior yellow matte silk and wool crepe cocktail dress with contoured seams on the bodice which she styled with black Dior pumps.

The second bit of good news is that her makeup artist is no longer M.I.A. as Carey (the star who kicked started the barely-there makeup trend) sported a lush raspberry lip shade.

No jewels, just a simple wavy bun completed her look.

Do you love the look or can you not ignore her footwear selection as I have chosen to?

Kate Winslet In Jenny Packham – ‘Labor Day’ London Film Festival Premiere

Kate Winslet In Jenny Packham - ‘Labor Day’ London Film Festival Premiere

Kate Winslet attended the premiere of ‘Labor Day’ during the BFI London Film Festival this evening looking radiant in red.

She was wearing a bespoke scarlet short sleeve gown with Swarovski crystal detailing by Jenny Packham, which she styled with De Beers earrings, a matching diamond bracelet, a black satin Christian Louboutin ‘Traviata’ clutch and black leather-and-chiffon Christian Louboutin ‘Angelique’ peep-toes.

The British designer has been Kate’s go-to designer for her maternity red carpet looks for her third pregnancy and it’s a prosperous union which I hope continues throughout this promo tour because this look is both flattering and stylish, plus when it comes to maternity-wear Jenny Packham is all about celebrating the bump, rather than concealing it.

A chic wavy updo with face framing tendrils completed her look.

Sandra Bullock In Stella McCartney – ‘Gravity’ London Film Festival Premiere

Sandra Bullock In Stella McCartney –  ‘Gravity’ London Film Festival Premiere

Sandra Bullock attended the 2013 BFI London Film Festival this evening, where she stunned on the red carpet for the premiere of her film, ‘Gravity,’ held at the Odeon Leicester Square.

The actress had me floating on cloud nine with her sexy, sophisticated and slightly noir outing, composed of a black-and nude long-sleeve lace top and mini skirt from Stella McCartney’s Spring 2014 collection.

This little leggy number was boosted with the appropriate addition of black satin Charlotte Olympia peep-toe pumps.

Sandra smartly delivered a small dose of intense colour via a berry-red lip lacquer, finishing the look with wavy, centre-parted locks.

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.
