The London Film Festival is one of the key events in the UK showbiz calendar so it had to start in style with not one but two celebrations. Firstly, the British Film Institute hosted an intimate dinner for some of London’s key entertainment figures. It was a strictly UK affair with singer Eliza Doolittle and actresses Sienna Miller and Emilia Fox (left to right in the photo above). And they certainly showed off how the British women dress. Eliza’s maxi dress was a gorgeous metallic colour while Sienna brightened up the evening in a cream dress. Then I thought actress Emilia Fox looked rather regal and Princess-like in a black maxi dress. What do you think?
The second event was more of an international affair with the Captain Philips premiere in Leicester Square. Tom Hanks walked the red carpet with his wife Rita Wilson.
I love a man in a black suit, don’t you? Captain Philips is a truly dramatic film about Somali pirates and their hostages and some critics are calling it Tom’s best film to date, Yes, even better than Castaway! If you get a chance to watch it, take it – you won’t regret it.
The London Film Festival is on for the next two weeks so I’ll have plenty more premiere gossip. Stay tuned!
