A bunch of English actors and actresses haunted my desktop today, reminding me of the good old movies I used to watch before life got complicated. You see, I used to have a fetish for English movies, more specifically for Jane Austen’s and Agatha Christie’s tales. It is almost too much to grasp, considering that the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards happened on a very special full moon.
Speaking of actors, I swear Keira Knightly went back in time to her Pride and Prejudice character, Elizabeth Bennet. The dress is delicate, soft and feminine. Also, I’m happy to see more of this gorgeous mama at events.Embed from Getty Images
I love Zoë Wanamaker so much for bringing good humor to Agatha Christie’s world of murder and mystery, in Hercule Poirot series. She’s also played once in Miss Marple. David Suchet and this lady are the heroes of my 20’s. Here she looks fancy and cozy, accompanied by her husband, actor Gawn Grainger.Embed from Getty Images
Dominic Cooper is perhaps the hottest English man out there, alive and breathing. He broke my heart and Marianne’s heart (played by Charity Wakefield) in Jane Austen’s 2008 British television drama adaptation Sense and Sensibility. And he broke my heart again when he played Charles Grey in 2008 British drama film The Duchess. For the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, he wore a navy blue suit and an almost matching tie.Embed from Getty Images
And last, but not least, actress Billie Piper brought back memories from Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, which definitely is not one of my favorite adaptations from the English novelist tales, but I did love Piper’s acting and the vibe she gives. Here she looks gorgeous in her shimmery evening dress. Props for the naked shoulder and turtleneck – what an intriguing mix of elements her dress had!Embed from Getty Images
