Emily Blunt steals the spotlight at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards

Emily Blunt looked striking in a stunning black Alexander McQueen dress at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards last night.

The 29-year-old actress chose the figure-hugging floor length dress for the event held at The Mayfair Hotel in the UK yesterday.

The Looper star ensured all eyes were on her as she posed for photographs in the chic gown that she accessorised with a chunky belt to highlight her waist, Swarovski clutch bag and Ofira jewels.

Emily pulled her brown locks up into a stylish bun knot to highlight her long and lean silhouette. She also sported a fresh faced and glowing complexion, wearing minimal eye make-up and a nude lipstick.

This is the actress' latest impressive red carpet turn out following her stylish choices for this year's Golden Globe Awards and Critics' Choice Awards.

Other stars present at the awards included Helena Bonham Carter who also played it safe in a black, knee length gown that showed a hint of her black lacy underwear peeking through from underneath.

The quirky dress was in keeping with the actress' usual kooky style and she accessorised with a black handbag that contained a heart motif.

The 46-year-old star was awarded with the Dilys Powell award for excellence in film which is the highest award bestowed at the event.

"It feels like a rash. It suddenly seems like I've got a contagion of diseases, I mean awards. But it's nice, it's a nice feeling," Helena joked.

"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."

Les Misérables star Samantha Barks also looked chic on the red carpet wearing a figure-hugging black and green dress, which showed off her tiny figure.
