Emily Blunt leads the style charge at London Critics’ Circle Awards

The actress looked stylish in an Alexander McQueen dress as she attended the film awards ceremony in London

With the 2013 awards season in full swing, a clutch of acting stars hit the capital this weekend for the London Critics’ Circle Awards, including a very stylish Emily Blunt.

The British actress braved the snowy conditions and led the style charge at the ceremony at the Mayfair Hotel, hitting the red carpet in a chic black dress with peplum detailing, a buckled belt and a cut-out back by Alexander McQueen.

Emily, who was nominated for British Actress of the Year at the awards, completed her sophisticated look with a pair of silver stud earrings by Ofira, her hair swept up in a bun, and fresh and dewy make-up.

She was joined on the red carpet by fellow actresses Olivia Colman, Samantha Barks and national treasure Helena Bonham-Carter, who was honoured with the night’s Lifetime Achievement award.

Accompanied to the event by film director partner Tim Burton, she said of her win: ‘It’s so weird, because I’m only 46. A lifetime achievement award, it feels like I’m not over yet. I hope they’re not trying to say it’s time to stop. I’m only just getting the gist of it.’

Other winners on the night included Anne Hathaway, who scooped the prize for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Les Miserables, and Philip Seymour Hoffman who won the male equivalent for his role in The Master. His co-star, Joaquin Phoenix, won the Best Actor award for the same film, while Best Actress went to 85-year-old Emmanuelle Riva for her part in Michael Haneke’s Amour.
