The British label dressing the Hollywood A-listers...

Ralph & Russo - the only British house deemed skilled enough to win a place at the Paris Couture shows – is now a certified favourite of Angelina Jolie.

Wearing a Spring 2014 Couture pencil dress by the label with a chic cropped cape and exquisite button-up back, Angelina wowed the crowds as she attended the Unbroken première in London last night.

The actress, who got behind the camera for her latest film, was joined by cast members including Jack O’Connell, Angelina also posed with Chelsea pensioners and members of the armed forces.

Having worn the label just last month to collect the Insignia of Honorary Dame Grand Cross from the Queen, Angelina is clearly as fan of the couturiers. She also wore a chic peplum number to Brad Pitt’s World War Z premiere last year – high praise indeed.

Ralph & Russo was founded in 2007 by two Australians, Tamara Ralph, a designer, and Michael Russo, the company's CEO. Specialising in handmade evening wear, the London-based house was last year invited to join the highest club in fashion, Paris's Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, alongside Dior, Chanel and Valentino. 

But the love-in hasn't stopped there. The label was commissioned by Beyonce to create looks for her Mrs Carter world tour.

And after the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly commissioned the designers for a dress of her own – can we expect to see the couturiers names to pop up again when Kate and Wills tour America?
