DRESSED to im­press


Coventry Telegraph - - FASHION FOCUS -

IT WASN’T stip­u­lated on the dress code but a host of at­ten­dees at the 21st Bri­tish In­de­pen­dent Film Awards in Lon­don at the week­end de­cided the time was right to think pink.

From baby to hot pink, crim­son and ma­genta, there was no get­ting away from the colour of the night.

Doc­tor Who star Jodie Whit­taker, who was pre­sent­ing one of the evening’s gongs, was hard to miss in a dipped-hem fuch­sia midi. With its open shoul­ders and over­sized frills, the dress was quite the de­par­ture from her Time Lord wardrobe.

At the more sug­ary end of the pink scale, Gemma Arter­ton – nom­i­nated for her work in The Es­cape – made quite the im­pact in a stun­ning gown by Emilia Wick­stead. De­spite its mod­est neck­line and floor­sweep­ing length, the dress’s low back and sides brought a hint of sex­i­ness to the gown.

El­lie Bam­ber’s hot pink Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo gown fea­tured a sim­i­lar design. The star of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ dress was busi­ness in front – with its high neck and princessy puff sleeves – but party at the back.

The Sugar Plum Fairy her­self would have loved it.
