Felicity Jones: 'I want to wow in my red carpet choices'

Felicity Jones goes for va-va-voom red carpet outfits.

The Theory of Everything actress is currently gracing A-list soirees around the globe promoting new Dan Brown flick Inferno, in which she stars with Tom Hanks.

Dressing for the red carpet has become part and parcel of Felicity’s career, and she likes taking her time when it comes to choosing the perfect outfit.

“It’s very instinctive,” she opened up to America’s InStyle. “But it’s not that far removed from anyone else who is getting ready for a night out. I usually try on at least a few options until I find the one that just feels right when you slip it on it. For a big premiere, I tend to pick something that is celebratory and dressed up because it’s the first time that the film is being shown and that in and of itself is special. I like to feel that va-va-voom.”

In recent weeks 33-year-old Felicity has wowed in Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Zimmerman. She also name checks London-based designers Erdem Moralioglu and Christopher Kane among her favorites, while praising Gucci’s Alessandro Michele for his “wonderful work”.

“I think of fashion as an art form,” she added. “There is so much skill that goes into designing and I’ve always loved seeing the imagination that goes into the shows like the ones that Karl Lagerfeld creates at Chanel.

“I still have fun with the red carpet. Especially when I love what I'm wearing.”

Inferno is in cinemas now.
