Isabella Charlotta Poppius In Luisa Beccaria – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Fashion model turned actress Isabella Charlotta Poppius attended the British Independent Film Awards on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

Currently filming ‘A Guide to Second Date Sex,’ there was nothing salacious about her Luisa Beccaria Resort 2018 gown.

Fairy-tale femininity has always been Luisa Beccaria’s signature, and this grey-blue point d’esprit gown offers a particularly modern translation which I simply adore.

The beguiling look was effortlessly styled with silver jewels.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Kate Mara attended the British Independent Film Awards on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London with her husband Jamie Bell.

The actress’ short colourful streak came to an end with this black Dior gown. Usually semi-sheerness equals sexy, however, on this occasion the look feels somewhat whimsical.

I’m glad she styled her look with a metal Dior minaudière and metallic Louboutin slingbacks, otherwise I would’ve been longing for something more to enhance the look.

Lily Newmark In Schiaparelli Couture – British Independent Film Awards 2017

Lily Newmark was one of my favourites at the British Independent Film Awards on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

Nominated in the ‘most promising newcomer’ category, the British-American actress wore a Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture strapless dress in nude tulle embroidered with an abstract mask featuring a red silk chiffon cape.

The whole look reads mystical fantasy fairytale which Lily plays an important role in bringing to life.

If you think the red cape was overkill, I would strongly disagree. I feel the look is better for the cape adding a dynamic element to the look.

Ruth Wilson In Calvin Klein – British Independent Film Awards 2017

After appearing to take on too much at The Fashion Awards, Ruth Wilson opted to go back to basics for the British Independent Film Awards on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London.

Her Calvin Klein bias-cut dress is the type of ’90s glamour that’ll never fade away.

We are used to seeing Ruth take a risk, yet simple elegance was on the cards for the evening, but she did add some intrigue with her Calvin Klein sandals and breath-taking David Morris earrings.

Do you like this softer approach, or do you want to see a return of Ruth’s daredevil style?

Florence Pugh In Miu Miu – British Independent Film Awards 2017

The British Independent Film Awards took place on Sunday (December 10) on Old Billingsgate in London, with Florence Pugh in attendance.

I’ve never been shy about expressing my feelings about Miu Miu red carpet gowns, but this bronzed-gold tulle gown ticks all the right boxes from the fabric to the gentle smattering of embellishments.

I love how the fairytale nature is tempered by the smoldering eye makeup. I almost wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing chunky boot under her gown, as I sense a shimmering rebellious vibe here.

Moet British Independent Film Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Moet British Independent Film Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick look at a few more celebs who joined Carey Mulligan and Marion Cotillard for the 2015 British Independent Film Awards at Old Billingsgate Market on Sunday (December 6) in London, England.

Laura Carmichael: The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a Christopher Kane dress with a trio of silhouettes which glow softly against this black sleeveless velvet mini dress. Styled with an Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp Packet’ clutch and black sandals, I continue to be excited by Laura’s red carpet looks. Words I thought I would never say a year ago. You may remember that Rowan Blanchard wore this to a Teen Vogue event.

Gemma Chan: The British actress served up contemporary elegance wearing a Roland Mouret gown which I love for the impeccably tailoring and bright blue hue.

Alicia Vikander: The actress wore a beautiful custom Louis Vuitton crystal accented gown styled with LV sandals and a Fine Jewelry ring. Such a shame about the lacklustre makeup.

Carey Mulligan In Gucci – 2015 British Independent Film Awards

Carey Mulligan In Gucci - 2015 British Independent Film Awards

Carey Mulligan attended the 2015 British Independent Film Awards at Old Billingsgate Market on Sunday (December 6) in London, England.

The actress wore a Gucci Spring 2016 emerald, grey and silver lurex geometric jacquard gown featuring an embroidered bird and flower details which brings charisma to the sophisticated silhouette.

Methinks this will have an equal love-hate split.

I’m firmly in the love corner.

Firstly because this is such an unexpected look for Carey and secondly she manages to make it work by shaking off the geek-granny vibe we saw on the runway.

Love or loathe?
