All eyes will be on the British beauty to see what dazzling gown she will wear on the big night, but it seems that Rosamund has already been upping the style stakes. At the glitzy event on Friday she turned heads in a beautiful floor-length cream silk gown with a high neckline. The bodice consisted of ruffle detailing and floral print, while the skirt featured a large poppy print.

When it came to beauty, Rosamund chose to wear her short blonde bob in loose waves and a side parting for a touch of old Hollywood glamour. The mother-of-two showcased her natural beauty wearing almost no make-up save for a hint of mascara and a slick of lipgloss to complement her fresh-faced look.

The London-born star recently revealed that when it comes to deciding what to wear for the red carpet, comfort plays a major factor. "I find the most beautiful dress I can for the occasion that amuses me, appeals to me, that I feel good in," she told USA Today. "That's it really."

The former Bond girl also revealed that she "will welcome the day with open arms when I can just turn up in jeans and a T-shirt".

Rosamund has already seen jaws drop with her red carpet style, as she lead the best-dressed stars at the Golden Globes in January. The pretty actress stepped out in a revealing, cut-out Vera Wang gown, showing off her enviably toned figure in the custom-made gown a mere five weeks after giving birth.
