Actress Gillian Anderson, who found fame in the American television series The X-Files (we feel old!) and stars in new BBC hit drama The Fall, has taken a break from the silk, power blouse that has recently catapulted her to national sex symbol status. Wearing a sparkling, black evening dress to the Diner des Grands Chefs at the Relais & Chateaux hotel in London, Gillian was the epitome of traditional, red carpet glamour.

As opulent embellishments feature heavily in the AW13 collections, Gillian's glittering, black evening dress was right on trend. Prada seduced spectators with the laid-back glamour of black, floral, sequined patterns, whilst Marc Jacobs relied on sequined patches to convey the fantasy and sensuality behind his collection for Louis Vuitton’s AW13 offering.

Recreate this red carpet worthy look with our sparkling, black evening dress from celebrity brand Forever Unique. The seductive black lace and net contrasted with the demure high neckline and tulle skirt exude both gothic glamour and old-fashioned romance, providing the perfect balance between cutting-edge and traditional. Complete the ensemble with a pair of glittering, black, peep-toe shoes – we love the Francesca shoe by Bourne! – our striking, black clutch bag from Lagom and a pair of elegant, silver earrings.

Get the look: Forever Unique Kassidy Dress in Black £550; Bourne Francesca Shoe in Black £102.20; Lagom Carina Clutch in Black £49; Johnny Loves Rosie Leaf Drop Earrings in Silver £16.
