Naomie Harris sparkles in McQueen

Naomie Harris dazzled in Alexander McQueen at the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom Royal Premiere.

The British actress looked like royalty as she walked the red carpet in her floor-length gown by Alexander McQueen. The sleek number, which hugged her enviable curves, featured a gold leaf pattern and jewel peplum detail. This extra touch added sparkle to Naomie's entire ensemble, along with her Jessica McCormick earrings and rings.

Wearing an opposite and equally striking dress during the event was Britain's the Duchess of Cambridge. The brunette beauty looked stunning in a crisp white Roland Mouret gown with a slashed neckline and slit above the knee.

She accessorised with a glamorous diamond necklace and a small black Mulberry satin clutch bag, with shoes to match.

While it looked worth a lot of money, the duchess' necklace was actually from high street store Zara and cost just $32.60.

The film's main star Idris Elba also dressed to impress for the occasion. The 41-year-old actor plays Nelson Mandela in the movie, who sadly passed away yesterday evening. Idris looked dapper in a black suit, crisp white shirt and a dark textured tie.

He may have no trouble looking polished in real life but Idris admitted he was worried about getting the portrayal of the late politician accurate.

"Everyone knows who Mandela is, everyone has an idea of what he sounds and looks like. I worked really hard to pull in all the elements, from the sound of his voice to the way he walks," he told MailOnline from the red carpet. "I don't look anything like him but it was really important the audience got a sense of who Mandela is because the likelihood is that we will never meet him in person."
