Ashley Walters In Ben Sherman – British Independent Film Awards 2012

Ashley Walters joined Elle Fanning and Alicia Vikander on the red carpet yesterday evening at Old Billingsgate Market in London for the British Independent Film Awards 2012.

Giving me even more reason to enjoy featuring menswear, the actor donned a wine-coloured Ben Sherman suit.

Wearing one of Britain’s quintessential brands, the skinny fit – also known as a ‘Camden’ fit – single-breasted wool two-button suit featuring notched lapels and two flap pockets was styled with a white dress shirt and a quirky mustard-coloured bow-tie, which complemented the rich hue of his suit.

Alicia Vikander In Chanel Couture – British Independent Film Awards 2012

Alicia Vikander was also pretty in pink on the red carpet at Old Billingsgate Market in London yesterday evening for the British Independent Film Awards 2012.

The relatively unknown actress wowed in a Chanel Fall 2012 Couture gown.

Chanel are always very generous to up-and-coming actresses: Freida Pinto once said in an interview that many fashion houses ignored her requests in the early days except Chanel. I trust their eye for spotting stars who are ones-to-watch, considering they have also backed Bella Heathcote and Emilia Clarke.

Her pink frock with sheer stripes, a banded waistband and button detailing was lightly accented with shredded detailing on the sleeves and skirt, adding to the delicate nature of her ethereal frock.

Barely-there makeup, stone pumps and a half-up, half-down hairstyle completed this BDOTW-worthy look.

Elle Fanning In Oscar de la Renta – British Independent Film Awards 2012

The British Independent Film Awards took place at Old Billingsgate Market in London yesterday evening and were attended by Britain’s talented up-and-coming stars, plus a cute teen American actress called Elle Fanning.

I love Elle, because you never quite know what’s coming next: she can go from indie to edgy to preppy to princess-like with equal aplomb.

Last night, it was princess-like, wearing an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 gown.

The light-pink silk organza embroidered gown with a fitted bodice and bell-shaped skirt does an amazing job of not washing her out nor overwhelming her petite figure.

Keeping the styling super-simple and ensuring all eyes were on her fabulous dress, she opted for no makeup, nude Oscar de la Renta pumps and a slicked-back bun.

Gemma Arterton In Stella McCartney – British Independent Film Awards 2011

Gemma Arterton also stepped out for the 2011 British Independent Film Awards in London last night.

The British actress opted to wear a simple Stella McCartney Resort 2012 peplum dress.

Her black strapless dress might be a tad boring to some of you, but I love how she styled this basic dress to give her look plenty of sex appeal.

Sexy black and nude strappy sandals, a Stella McCartney dotted clutch and bold red lips heat up her red carpet look.

You can buy Gemma’s Stella McCartney dress from
Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

Hayley Atwell In Antonio Berardi – British Independent Film Awards 2011

Hayley Atwell was once again suffering from ‘oversized clutch’ syndrome on the red carpet at the 2011 British Independent Film Awards in London last night.

The ‘Captain America’ actress debuted an Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 ‘Tina’ clutch with her Antonio Berardi Resort 2012 dress.

Whilst the red-hot clutch perfectly complemented her matching bow-front peep-toes and sultry red lips, I do wish the clutch wasn’t dominating her look.

A red minaudière and a balconette bra would’ve been preferred with her sexy frock.

Hayley’s wavy hair tumbled down one side of her forest-print dress to complete her red carpet look.

Carey Mulligan In Prabal Gurung – 2010 British Independent Film Awards

All eyes would’ve been on Carey Mulligan as she walked the red carpet at the 2010 British Independent Film Awards in London last night.

I admire her recent efforts on the red carpet as she goes from strength to strength in the style department – both in terms of her dress choices and forever changing hairstyles.

She looked beautiful wearing a Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 dress.

I love the striking impact of her red Prabal Gurung dress with ruffled corsage detail bodice; although I do wish her shoulders didn’t look so hunched.

This is a very sophisticated look which doesn’t age her as she teams her look with a fun poppy embellished Roger Vivier clutch.

Black peep-toes complete the look.

Rosamund Pike In Vionnet – 2010 British Independent Film Awards

Rosamund Pike attended the 2010 British Independent Film Awards in London last night wearing a refreshing mix of colours.

She looked young and fresh wearing a Vionnet Spring 2011 dress.

The blue and black dress with white and coral stripes has a plunging neckline and a draped detail from the shoulder.

I love the mix of colours and the length of skirt which shows off her long legs.

Her look was paired with Charlotte Olympia heels which also help elongate her legs.

Emma Roberts In Topshop – 2010 British Independent Film Awards

Emma Roberts was the other young star to attend the 2010 British Independent Film Awards in London last night.

She also opted for a high-street brand for her red carpet look.

Emma has been spotted wearing a lot of Topshop both on and off the red carpet, so I wasn’t surprised to see her wearing this Topshop grey skeleton leaf print pleated maxi dress.

The spaghetti strap dress was paired with a beautiful floral statement necklace and a nude Miu Miu clutch.

Her dress is the perfect icy winter dress that could just as easily be worn in the Spring.

I love how both Georgie Henley and Emma are showing young girls how to dress with style and sophistication.

Georgie Henley In Lanvin For H&M – 2010 British Independent Film Awards

The adorable teenage actress Georgie Henley attended the 2010 British Independent Film Awards in London last night.

You would have noticed from my last post that I’m quite taken by her style and she wowed me again at this event wearing a Lanvin for H&M dress.

Her grey tulle dress with a sheer yoke was accented with a chartreuse ribbon tied to her waist.

This is the perfect look for the 15 year old, who works her affordable dress with a quiet confidence and beautiful smile.

Two tone shoes and a black sparking clutch completed her look.

I’m glad she didn’t over accessorize.
