Who: Thandie Newton
Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California
Wearing: A lavender lace GILES mini-dress embellished with Swarovski crystals from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with matching coloured ankle-strap heels and a silver box clutch
Verdict: While most went for floor-sweeping gowns Thandie showed off her fabulous pins in this sexy mini dress by British designer Giles Deacon.
Normally I would feel that this dress was probably suited to the People’s Choice Awards or MTV Movie Awards but for some reason I really thought it worked. Maybe it is because it is Thandie, who is known for taking risks on the red carpet, or maybe I am just being bias as it is a London Fashion Week designer but I really love this mini-dress.
The colour is divine, there was a lot of nude, red and black, so this lavender lace number really stood out, then there is the length if anyone can go short it is Thandie – her legs are incredible, and then there are the Swarovski sparkles.
For me this mini had just enough glitz for it to work at a big award ceremony – what do you think?
