Annabelle Wallis wears high street on red carpet

Annabelle Wallis doesn't think there's too much attention paid to red carpet fashion.

Annabelle Wallis doesn't think twice about wearing high street clothes to showbiz events.

The British actress has been a hit in the style stakes since finding international fame with TV series Peaky Blinders, which also stars Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy.

The gangster drama, set in 1920s Birmingham, England, is back on U.K. screens on Thursday (05May16), with Annabelle returning as ambitious Grace.

To promote the new season the actress, who is dating Coldplay star Chris Martin, has been on the promo trail, stepping out in a number of striking looks.

For the season three premiere on Wednesday, Annabelle slipped into a risque red number with cut-outs that showed off the 31-year-old's toned figure.

“I’m very passionate about fashion and I like to mix it up with a bit of designer and a bit of high street,” she told Britain’s Metro newspaper.

“You can be stylish without having to spend a lot of cash and I’ve worn Zara on the red carpet cost me no more than 20 quid (pounds). But if I’m going for the designer look my picks would be Valentino and Chloe," she added.

Some stars have criticised reporters for asking about the dresses they’re wearing on the red carpet, with Reese Witherspoon even starting the #AskHerMore Twitter campaign before the 2015 Oscars to encourage more interesting dialogue.

However Annabelle has no problem talking about her clothes, and doesn’t think style ever overtakes someone’s work.

“I don’t think there’s too much attention paid to red carpet fashion. Obviously the work is the most important thing but the impression you make is important. You want your work to be noticed,” she smiled.
