She was attending a star-studded event alongside the great and good of the movie world.But Andrea Riseborough certainly ensured she was the centre of attention as she attended the 2012 Moet British Independent Film Awards on Sunday evening.
The 31-year-old actress wowed as she hit the red carpet at London’s Old Billingsgate venue in a daring plunging black gown.Leaving very little to the imagination as she posed up a storm, she made sure all eyes were on her thanks to her attention-grabbing ensemble.Featuring an eye-poppingly low neckline with little preserving the star’s modesty, the British actress didn’t seem in the least bit self-conscious about her daring choice of outfit.
With her dark brunette locks tumbling in loose waves around her shoulders, Andrea completed her positively showstopping look with a simple gold drop necklace, a slick of rouge lipstick and dramatic lashes.She has starred in a number of films, including Never Let Me Go and Made In Daganhem – both released in 2010. She is best known for her role as Wallis Simpson in Madonna’s 2011 film W.E. – but was at the awards as a nominee for best actress for this year’s Shadow Dancer.She won the Best Actress accolade – but, thanks to her dress, could have easily taken the award for least supported actress.
Although there was no doubt the actress stole the spotlight when it came to her choice of outfit, she faced competition in the red carpet stakes from the likes of Elle Fanning, Ruth Wilson and Noomi Rapace.Elle, 14, looked pretty as a picture as she posed in an age-appropriate floral detail dress, with a dramatic puffball design.Meanwhile, Ruth, 30, showed off her fashion credentials in a sexy combination of a black sheer blouse and lace panel detail trousers, which she teamed with towering black peep-toe shoes and a chic up-do.
Elsewhere, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress Noomi kept it simple in a black drape detail dress, while a wide tan belt.Alongside the likes of Olivia Colman, Edith Bowman and Zawe Ashton, the men were represented in the form of Jude Law and Ben Drew, otherwise known as Plan B.Accepting the Variety Award for shining a light on British cinema throughout his career, Jude admitted he was thrilled to be recognised with the accolade after two decades in the film industry.
He said: ‘It feels great, there is no tension here tonight. I am very proud to be a Brit in a global film industry, and to be recognised after 20 years of kind of hard work is a good thing.’The 39-year-old actor, who recently accused the government of ‘cultural vandalism’ over plans to cut art education from the school syllabus, explained the awards were a celebration of the cultural industry.He added: ‘Let’s not ruin its future by stopping kids having free and fair artistic education.’Also honoured at the 2012 Moet British Independent Film Awards were the likes of Olivia Colman, Toby Jones and Rory Kinnear. – Dailymail
