English actress Gemma Arterton hosted the recent 2014 Laurence Oliver Awards and while she was responsible for helping announce the awards her sophisticated and stunning presence in her "fitted pale blue gown" had many entertainment and fashion insiders proclaiming both her and the viewing audience as the true winners of the night. Her appearance in this dress showed many of her peers how to look exceptional, modern and classy and there was no question that the audience, men and women had no difficulty keeping their eyes on the beautiful host of the evening.
The outspoken actress who played Strawberry Fields in "Quantum Solace" is in some respects very similar to her character in the movie as she is unafraid to voice her opinion and did so prior to entering the awards ceremony when she noted that she believes the roles in theater are better for women than those in film. This is a semi-controversial statement who will be star in the dramatic movie "Gemma Bovery" and is signed on to be the star of the dramatic thriller movie "The Keys to the Street" that is in the process of pre-production.
The focus of this talented acting star has however been on the stage in 2014 as she recently completed performing the starring role in "Duchess of Malfi" and is currently in intense preparation for the musical adaptation of "Made in Dagenham". Her starring role in "Made in Dagenham" will stretch her abilities to their maximum as she will have to sing for at least one hour in each of the 8 performances that take place during the week.
However, if there is one actress who looks more than capable of handling the responsibilities of the part it is the talented and committed Gemma Arterton and with her appearance as the host of the Laurence Olivier Awards it is not a question of whether the seats will be full as audiences are likely going to race to watch her performance just to see her.
If Gemma Arterton's goal was to bring attention to her upcoming projects by looking glamorous at the recent awards show she can consider the task to have been successfully completed.
