Over the last week, all our favourite actors have been dropping by Leicester Square for London Film Festival 2019 to don their fanciest outfits, strut the red carpet and watch their brand new blockbusters on the silver screen. So far, BFI has hosted over 30 major premiers includingThe King with Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp, The Aeronauts starring Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne and Knives Out featuring Daniel Craig and Ana da Armas! We’ve seen the trailers and we can’t wait for the films to come out in cinemas but in the meantime, let’s talk about what everyone was wearing. From heavy glitter to chic monochrome, here are the best trends we’ve spotted on the red carpet this year…
- Go big in glitter
As if these stars weren’t sparkling enough already, some of our favourites stepped out in seriously glittering looks. Thomasin McKenzie went for a shimmering silver suit and added even more glitz with her shoes. Meanwhile, Timothée Chalamet opted for a sequinned Louis Vuitton hoodie and smart trousers. Two takes on the trend, two 10/10 looks.
- Substitute for suits
Forget the ballgown, many of this year’s on-screen celebs opted to sport suits instead. Whether it was a ruffled twist on the classic tuxedo from new James Bond lead Ana De Armas or a burgundy velvet two piece from Morfydd Clark, they made sure to keep their co-ords interesting.
- Show up in sheer
As always, Gwendoline Christie stole all the stares when she turned up in her sheer Iris Van Herpen number with its striking print and butterfly winged sleeves. Sheer fabrics were spotted elsewhere too, such as on Felicity Jone’s shimmering Oscar De La Renta gown.
- Chic in monochrome
You can never go wrong in black and white: not only does it suit everyone but it will always look great against the red carpet! Unbelievably, Lily Rose Depp plucked her gown straight of the Chanel runway show at Paris Fashion Week just a few day ago!
- Really into ruffles
Ruffles and frills are set to be huge this season so the stars that opted for this trend are on the money. On the festivals opening night, Aimee Kelly took tiered ruffles to the next level in a cascading polka-dot look whilst Moryfdd Clark went for a more paired-back blush pink number.
