Last night’s 24th British Independent Film Awards hosted a red carpet chock full of eye-catching ensembles, from demure elegance to unexpected avant-garde. Taking place at Old Billingsgate in London, the event saw standout style moments from Kate Beckinsale, The Morning Show’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and The Crown’s Emma Corrin.
Integrating some of the most well-known and prominent faces in British film with burgeoning fresh faces, the awards have been working towards highlighting the full bandwidth of talent in British cinema. Mirroring that concept, the red carpet saw a blend of classic glamour and unanticipated contemporary designs, melding the new with the old, both exuding peak luxury nonetheless.
Attending as a presenter, Beckinsale walked the red carpet in a crisp alabaster column gown with tailored beaded sleeves and a cascading structural cape detail by designer Jenny Packham. Also presenting, Gugu Mbatha-Raw was a vision in a muted beige sequined Galvan London gown, evoking an effortless glamour and a quiet elegance. The actress kept her beauty in line with her ensemble, maintaining a simplistic and natural bronzed glow.
In keeping with her typically quirky style, actress Emma Corrin‘s BIFA red carpet appearance comes as no surprise. Donning a custom wisteria matching set from Brazilian designer Marco Ribeiro, the rising star color blocked the look with a bold royal blue collared top beneath. With its bright colors and Corrin‘s new bleached bob, the actress most certainly made a strong sartorial statement with the help of stylist Harry Lambert. Forming the brand around the concept of a circle, the look also promotes the design codes and DNA of the upcoming label with a circle taking centerstage of the piece. Serving as Ribeiro’s red carpet debut, the unique and daring ensemble most definitely made a splash.
While Corrin, Mbatha-Raw, and Beckinsale hardly being the only stars to step out in style, they undoubtably stole the show. Honoring both everlasting legends and trailblazing new up-and-comers in British Independent film, the 24th annual British Independent Film Awards saw all walks of cinematic life step out in style.
