Felicity Jones cured of red carpet fear

Felicity Jones' process of getting dressed up for an event has become more "habitual" over time.

The British actress has had success with films such as Chalet Girl, Like Crazy and her latest venture, Breathe In, and always looks great at premieres.

Recently she attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Bling Ring wearing a short black Louis Vuitton dress with a flared skirt, leather biker jacket and pointed heels.

Over time, the 29-year-old has become used to all eyes being on her.

"It's nice now, because it's become more habitual," she explained to Cover Media.

"I've got used to it; it's not quite as intimidating as it was before. You learn what works on your body and to do your hair and make-up and what looks good on you. Then you can just enjoy the event and not worry about what you look like!"

Yesterday, the star opened the Edinburgh Film Festival with Breathe In, which is directed by Drake Doremus.

Felicity looked great in a turquoise and black dress, with her hair down and natural make-up.

Prior to the event, she talked about her outfit choice.

"I'm wearing a dress by Proenza Schouler; they're two designers I've always liked. Their collections and them as people - their clothes are strong and simple," she revealed.

While many celebrities rely on stylists, Felicity prefers to have a say in what she wears.

"I'm naturally interested in clothes, so I like to have the input. And I'm the one that's got to wear it!" she added.
