Kristin Scott Thomas In Erdem – 2018 Met Gala

Kristin Scott Thomas was one of the numerous people in attendance at the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala on Monday evening (May 7) in New York City.

The actress was a beauty in baby blue, donning a bespoke Erdem moire silk gown as she walked the red carpet with the designer. The dress exuded such a regal elegance with the watteau train and English hand embroidery.

The sophisticated refinement is very much in her wheelhouse, but it was a refreshing change to see her in a lighter colour. It suited the night’s M.O. and was a deviation from her preferred dark colour palette.

Kristin Scott Thomas In Valentino – ‘Tomb Raider’ London Premiere

Kristin Scott Thomas brought some drama to the red carpet at the ‘Tomb Raider’ London premiere on Tuesday (March 6), joining Alicia Vikander.

The actress got swept away in a long-sleeved Valentino gown, which despite its soft, full shape, had such presence on the red carpet.

There was a regal air to the style with the high neck and sheer sleeve panels. With the inky fabric, it was a look that was very much in her wheelhouse.

A statement cuff and red lipstick were grand finishes to the sophisticated dress.

Kristin Scott Thomas In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Ever the regal lady, Kristin Scott Thomas stepped out at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Naomie Harris, Haley Bennett and Angelina Jolie.

The star, who is nominated in the Best Actress in a Supporting Role category for her work in ‘Darkest Hour,’ was a vision in a Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture ensemble.

The flowing style demonstrated the impact of a pared-back colour palette, with the slashes of white creating a flattering lengthening effect.

The vertical stripes also drew our attention to her face.

She completed the look with a Time’s Up pin affixed to her chest.

EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of exciting looks at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party at Kensington Palace on Saturday (February 17) in London, England.

Karen Gillan: The ‘Doctor Who’ actress shimmered in a Temperley London gown. Despite the all-black colour palette, this feels like a few different dresses in one look. It’s too bad that the tulle skirt gives the appearance of weighing down the top part.

Allison Janney: The Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee ditched the gown in favour of an August Getty trench dress. The gray number had a marvelous lengthening effect which showcased her statuesque beauty. It was beautifully cut and as sophisticated as any dress. If I must find fault, I wish the sleeves were shortened to eliminate the bunching. Nine West shoes, a Judith Leiber clutch and Maxior tourmeline earrings added more pizzazz.

Kristin Scott Thomas: Another Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee, the beauty turned heads in a Valentino dress. The dragon-inspired design nods to Chinese New Year and projects a joyful opulence. The style hails from the same Pre-Fall 2018 collection as Greta Gerwig’s gown.

Kristin Scott Thomas In Valentino – London Evening Standard British Film Awards 2018

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas attended a drinks reception at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel on Thursday (February 8) in London.

Valentino Garavani made red the signature shade of his house, and a decade after his retirement (I can’t believe it’s been that long), current Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli continues to pay homage to the hue in quite spectacular fashion.

What really garners my interest here is the construction of this gown. You’re going to think I’m crazy, but I love how the hem meets the floor at the perfect point. My biggest bug bear are tailored dresses like this which crumple on the floor.

I’m always fascinated by the finer details when it comes to fashion and Kristin’s simple and elegant dress is quite a masterpiece.

Kristin Scott Thomas In Christian Dior – ‘Darkest Hour’ London Premiere

Kristin Scott Thomas joined Lily James at the’Darkest Hour’ London premiere on Monday (December 11).

The actress bundled up in a Christian Dior Fall 2017 ensemble which befitted the chilly temperatures at the Odeon Leicester Square.

I loved how the runway version presents a youthful edge while Kristin’s has a refined elegance from the long layers.

My inclination is that her look would have benefited from a bit of streamlined tailoring, especially in the sleeves.

Small touches aside, this plays into her wheelhouse beautifully and will leave a stronger impression than any old gown.
