On the red carpet: Taraji P Henson, Greta Gerwig, Jacqui Ainsley and Keri Russell

Is Taraji P Henson’s dress on back-to-front?

This saucy design by Cushnie et Ochs dress is long enough not to look too trashy, especially paired with strappy Stuart Weitzman sandals. Her striped clutch is by Edie Parker.

Greta Gerwig’s Proenza Schouler outfit is one of those looks that fizzles at an LA event like Sundance Next Fest. A lack of colour has something to do with it, black disguises the pretty surface texture on the wrap-top and skirt. Her elfin silver flats are also by the New York brand.

Jacqui Ainsley’s customised Temperley gown looks too bridal for The Man from U.N.C.L.E premiere. The turtleneck and gaping lace sleeves date it enough for an Austin mini-series. This dress actually looked very modern and elegant on the catwalk, I can’t think why she altered it.

Keri Russell went with red carpet fail-safe Zuhair Murad for the Television Critics Association Awards in Beverly Hills. The intricate lace kimono-style top to this dress is studded with beads that give it some shimmer. A nude manicure and onyx jewellery finish the look.
