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.
