Roland Mouret’s ‘Abbotsford’ dress has been worn by celebrities on three separate occasions and in two different colourways.
‘Les Mis’ actress and red carpet newcomer Samantha Barks was the first to wear the black-and-green version to the 2013 London Critics’ Circle Film Awards back in January.
Opting for subtle jewels and an updo, she added metallic-silver Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps to her look.
Karolina Kurkova wore the same dress in green-and-white with Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps for her guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ the following month. Only Karolina can make me fall in love with a look which features white pumps.
When Natalie Dormer attended the ‘Games of Thrones’ LA premiere she wore her ‘Abbotsford’ dress with black pumps.
I prefer the green-and-white runway version over Samantha’s black-and-green. Natalie’s footwear was totally wrong for this dress and Karolina took my breath away, so it was an easy win for the leggy Czech model.
