Don't rain on my parade! Lily James still manages to look sophisticated in slinky sleeveless gown, despite soggy red carpet at BFI Film Awards
But Lily James somehow managed to look both chic and sleek as she arrived at the BFI Film Awards in London on Saturday night.
The Downton Abbey Star was aided by a trusty umbrella as she posed for pictures in her slinky sleeveless gown teamed with silver drop earrings.
Her dark blonde hair was worn loose and long over her shoulders while smoky brown eyeshadow and a nude lipstick added to her dramatic appearance
The actress appeared to be without boyfriend Matt Smith at the event which was held at Banqueting House.
However, there were an array of stars from the British film industry at the event including Anna Friel who also plumped for a dark dazzling frock.
The sequinned number with black frilled panels fell well below the knee and was teamed with some towering peep toe black heels.
The actress's dark brown hair was worn slicked back while deep red lipstick accentuated her features.
A black and white patterned handbag completed the look.
Meanwhile Alicia Vikander amped up the glamour in a stunning white gown which showed off her slim figure to the maximum.
The short sleeved dress featured a sweetheart neckline, and was teamed with strappy white heels.
With her hair pulled up in a chic updo, the 28-year-old Swedish star wore a simple touch of eyeliner and deep red lipstick for a dramatic feel.
Alicia was joined by her actor beau Michael Fassbender who looked dapper in a black tuxedo and bow tie.
The Irish actor was on hand to see director Steve McQueen honoured with the BFI Fellowship award.
Fassbender starred in McQueen's 2012 Oscar winning film 12 Years A Slave alongside actress Lupita Nyong'o, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Hosted by Michael Sheen, the ceremony was honoring director Steve McQueen who was nominated for an Oscar for 2012 Best Picture winner 12 Years A Slave.
'I first walked into the BFI library and cinema 28 years ago,' Steve said in response to his award in a statement.
'To think that I will now be a Fellow and honorary member, with such a distinguished list of people, is mindblowing. I’m humbly honoured.'
Cate Blanchett was the recipient of the prestigious prize last year.
Meanwhile films in contention for the Best Film Award included Brimstone starring Dakota Fanning; Certain Women staring Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart, while Cynthia Nixon's Emily Dickinson biopic A Quiet Passion is also in contention.
Other attendees included Michael Sheen who was hosting proceedings, and actress Romola Garai who sported an unusual purple gown, while Gugu Mbatha-Raw wore a plunging floral number.
