Felicity Jones is all flounce and frills at Toronto International Film Festival

Felicity Jones is not known for her period dramas, but the actress’s red carpet frock at Toronto International Film Festival looked more like a museum piece.

The Rogue One and Theory of Everything actress hit the carpet for the premiere of her movie A Monster Calls, which also stars Sigourney Weaver, Toby Kebbell and Liam Neeson.

Felicity’s outfit featured fluttery sleeves and a many-tiered skirt – although she gave the look a modern twist with chunky black heels underneath.

The fantasy drama film is directed by JA Bayona and is based on the 2011 novel by Patrick Ness.

Felicity plays a mother suffering from terminal illness, whose son Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is trying to deal with his unhappy life. One night, he encounters a “monster” (Liam) in the form of a giant yew tree.
