Inspired Style: Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Martin Grant premieres Belle wearing a red-carpet worthy romper.


Who said rompers (or playsuits as they’ve come to be known) can’t be properly dressed up for date night or an after five event?


Belle leading lady Gugu Mbatha-Raw proved rompers can indeed be red-carpet worthy at the film’s London premiere.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who’s poised to become a big name in Hollywood, seized the opportunity to show off her fab gams at the London Belle premiere wearing a playsuit from the Martin Grant Spring 2013 collection.

With its origami detailing at the bust and full overskirt, Gugu’s playsuit is given the illusion of a chic little black dress, so it’s easy to see how she and her style team were able to transform the romper into a red-carpet look.

Carolina Bucci ‘Mirador’ drop earrings ($675) and Christian Louboutin ‘Follies’ lace pumps ($841) added chic finishing touches to Gugu’s ensemble.

To get Gugu’s look for less, try the above pictured ‘Adelyn’ peplum detail playsuit ($45) from Missguided. Featuring the same silhouette and even the same bustline detailing as Gugu’s Martin Grant piece, the ‘Adelyn’ playsuit is a great, lower end alternative.
