Imogen Poots turned heads at the Olivier Awards in London as she walked the red carpet in a stylish sequinned dress.

The fashion forward frock featured rows of multi-coloured sparkles down the bodice and skirt, and left the star’s shoulders bare.

Poots wore her hair in a bob and, like many celebrities at the event, had a Time’s Up badge pinned to the front of her gown.

Alexandra Burke also caught the eye in a black and white strapless number with an elaborate skirt.

Unlike the Baftas and Golden Globes, attendees at the Oliviers were not called upon to wear black to the event.

But it was still a favourite at the ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall, with Tracie Bennett, Summer Strallen and Arlene Phillips among those opting for the elegant look.

Many of the stars carried umbrellas in the damp weather.

Nominee Imelda Staunton beat the cold by snuggling up in a warm coat.
