Carey Mulligan looked absolutely sensational at the BFI London Film Festival for the Suffragette premiere yesterday evening - how mesmerising is her dress!?

The actress grabbed everyone's attention in the storm grey tulle frock designed by Chanel, which twinkled under the camera flashes thanks to the hundreds of diamantes adorning the front in a harlequin pattern.

Carey beat the likes of Helena Bonham-Carter and the legendary Meryl Streep to nab the award for best dressed in her show-stopper of a gown that boasted a ballerina style hem and matching fluted sleeves.

The star looked enviably slim on the red carpet - her first public appearance since giving birth - and praised domestic violence campaigners who flooded the premiere before setting off smoke bombs and flares.

She said, "I wish I'd seen it. For these women to do that tonight, I think that's awesome. It's so exciting."

Carey braved the London chill and teamed her lovely ensemble with a simple pair of strappy satin sandals. Her perfectly tousled locks and barely-there make-up lent the breathtaking dress a gorgeous, ethereal edge.

Girl crush alert!
