Helen McCrory In Roksanda – ‘The Prince’s Trust’ Awards

Helen McCrory attended ‘The Prince’s Trust’ Awards on Tuesday (March 6) in London.

The actress wore a pink Roksanda ‘Aruna’ ruched sleeve dress – inspired by the designers love of architecture and modern dance – which hails from the Resort 2018 collection.

Helen’s dress is beautifully tailored, but the exaggerated proportions of the ruched raglan sleeves rendered comical on the actress.

I personally feel the dress is beautiful, so I’m sad to see all the elegance from the lookbook evaporated here.

Better grooming, a proper bunching of the sleeves plus an improvement on the styling of this look would’ve improved things greatly.

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.

Helen McCrory In Roksanda – ‘Loving Vincent’ London Film Festival Premiere

Helen McCrory was front and center for the ‘Loving Vincent’ premiere during the 61st BFI London Film Festival on Monday (October 9).

The English actress has always been attracted to volume, and it would appear that also applies to jumpsuits.

This Roksanda Resort 2018 look feels more muted than the designer’s usual red carpet offerings, but her signature elegance is still present for all to see.

Cut to a billowy, wide leg that channels the silhouette of a maxi-length gown, Helen would’ve felt right at home in this luxurious one-piece.

Helen McCrory In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - 'A Little Chaos' London Premiere

Helen McCrory attended the London premiere of ‘A Little Chaos’ at Odeon Kensington on Monday (April 13) in London, England.

The actress wore a Nicholas Oakwell Couture grey gown, enriched with silver bugle beads and enhanced with a silver metal belt inspired by the Fall 2012 Couture collection.

As stunning as the gown is, that hair is killing this look for me. I just can’t get past the matronly style with such a contemporary look. The shoes aren’t helping either.

British Academy Television Awards 2013 Menswear Round Up

British Academy Television Awards 2013 Menswear

There were also many bespoke-suit-wearing blokes who took to the red carpet on Sunday evening for the British Academy Television Awards 2013, held at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Jamie Redknapp: We of course have to start with the very handsome Jamie, who joined his beautiful wife Louise at this event. The former footballer, who still retains his boyish good looks, wore a Thom Sweeney bespoke midnight blue mohair three-piece suit featuring a shawl lapel, with a white dress shirt and a bow tie. You may remember that Luke Evans wore a suit by the same designer with a similar low-cut waistcoat to the ‘Fast & Furious 6’ world premiere last week.

Dermot O’Leary: Opting for a much smaller bow tie, Dermot O’Leary selected a two-piece Rake midnight-blue suit with a black satin shawl collar, styled with a white dress shirt and white pocket square.

Damien Lewis: The actor, who joined his wife Helen McCrory on the red carpet, wore a two-button suit with slim-fit pants from his go-to brand Burberry. Unlike some of the guys, who selected white pocket squares at this event, Damien opted for black.

British Academy Television Awards 2013

British Academy Television Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

Millie Mackintosh: Opting to steal the limelight from the celebs at this event, the reality TV star wore a daring Sass & Bide Fall 2013 strapless gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, gold-plated accent, keyhole cut-out and thigh-high slit. Gold cuffs, a Swarovski clutch and black strappy heels completed her look. If stealing the limelight was her intention, I would say this was mission accomplished.

Holly Willoughby: I love Holly’s red Valentino one-shoulder gown; however, her black platform heels are a huge letdown. They are so clunky and heavy in comparison to the rest of her look. She can do – and has done – much better.

Jessica Hynes: This Vivienne Westwood gown was one of my favourites on the night. The black silk gown, with a ruched pale-pink chiffon-trimmed neckline, draped detail at the back and draped over-the-shoulder detail, gives her a beautiful silhouette. Allowing the gown to shine by just adding nude pumps was the perfect way to style this look.
