Felicity Jones’ Dior elegance

Felicity Jones’ was a picture of glamour in Dior as she joined Eddie Redmayne at the London premiere of The Theory Of Everything.

The 31-year-old actress was joined on the London red carpet by her co-star Eddie Redmayne, as well as famed physicist Stephen Hawking and former wife Jane Wilde Hawking. And she cut a classy yet quirky figure as she posed in the full-length white Dior garment.

It was certainly no skin-bearing affair for the cast and celebrated figures of the movie, which is based on Jane’s memoir entitled Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen. It follows her life with the legendary scientist, who suffers from motor neuron disease.

Felicity’s elegant gown was made of thick quilted fabric and featured a wide lampshade skirt. The sleeves were fashioned from silk and covered, like the bodice, in an array of floral designs.

The dress was perhaps even reminiscent of the white wedding gown worn by Jane on she and Stephen’s wedding day, which was re-created in the movie by she and Eddie.

Felicity was surely honoured to be standing alongside the film’s subjects, as she’s discussed in the past what it was like paying homage to their lives. It was the moment Stephen asked her for a “kiss” that she decided she “loved him”.

“He watched about an hour of filming and Eddie and I were waiting to see what he thought. Then an assistant appeared with a note from Hawking which said, ‘Would you ask Felicity if she will come and give me a kiss?’” Felicity recently told British newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

“It’s so nerve-wracking meeting these people whose lives you are getting so involved with and you don’t want to make a fool of yourself, especially with someone like Stephen who has changed the world in so many ways. Eddie and I just sat there trying to make conversation and not seem like we are total idiots.”
