London Evening Standard Theatre Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more stars were in attendance at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards were held on Sunday (December 3) in London, England, where all modes of elegance reigned supreme.

Annabelle Wallis: She was the very picture of modern glamour in this Stella McCartney black lace gown. I love how the perfect plunge neckline and semi-sheer, layered effect gave this dress a sultry yet sophisticated finish—juxtaposed with the classic elegance of old-Hollywood waves and a red lip.

Ophelia Lovibond: Not content to let her look go fully the way of monochromatic minimalism, Olivia enlivened this Emporio Armani Fall 2017 halter dress with a bright-pink clutch. It was unexpected, but gave the look its own unique flair.

Billie Piper: Glitz was the M.O. of this Magda Butrym Blackpool sequined knitted midi dress. But, the shorter length and cold-shoulder effect kept the embellishment modern and fresh. Christian Louboutin ‘Actina’ pumps completed the look.

Ellie Bamber: At first glance, this Chanel Fall 2017 Couture frock may seem a bit casual for the event. But, upon closer inspection, the embellishment and fringe were plenty festive, especially with Ellie’s side-swept, fiery locks along with her crimson lip and diamond earrings.

Allison Williams: While I was somewhat distracted by the visible lining, I was more focused on the shimmery radiance of this floral plisse gown that celebrated elegant femininity.

Helen McCrory: This Roksanda Spring 2018 design suffered in execution, as the fit of the sleeves and skirt overwhelmed Helen’s frame. Her footwear didn’t help matters.

Bee Shaffer: I love how effortlessly Bee wore this Valentino Resort 2018 gown, and I attribute some of that fresh perspective to her youthful ponytail. With all the embroidered embellishment, I would have thought a necklace would overcook it, but somehow she makes it work here.

Anna Wintour: Taking a boldly graphic stance, Anna wore a Maison Margiela Fall 2017 Couture dress. When topped off by the fur shrug, the mod motif immediately took on an aura of classic sophistication on her.

Suki Waterhouse: Despite its dainty cream hue, there was plenty of rebellion in this vintage dress from Vestiaire Collective, as we’d expect from Suki. Ordinarily, I would lose the pendant necklace and the heavily smoked eye makeup, but that was her own touch of personality for the dress.

Lena Perminova: I’m sure many will have a feeling of déjà vu in seeing another sheer, embellished gown. But, there will be no denying the striking artistry of this Georges Hobeika Fall 2017 Couture creation—or how beautifully Lena wore the streamlined stunner.

    I love the interplay of color and pattern in the beaded fabric of Bee Shaffer’s. gown. I find her sartorial choices intriguing.

    Ophelia’s dress is a knock-off of the Valentino Julia Roberts wore to the Oscars the year she won for Erin Brockovich. Armani ought to know better.

      I was just going to make the same comment. Julia’s dress was vintage and so lovely.

      my comment seems to have disappeared. I was going to make the same observation. Julia wore vintage Valentino when she won her Oscar and looked fabulous.

      +1 I think it was in 2001
