Thandie Newton 2013 BAFTA Awards Louis Vuitton dress

Thandie Newton took a sultry turn at the 2013 BAFTA awards, stepping out in a halter necked lace gown with a thigh slit by Louis Vuitton that was a great mix of feminine and sexy.

The gown had a modesty panel from bust to thigh, opening out into sheer panels over the collarbones and down to the floor, pooling in a short train. Thandie managed to reign it in and pose on the red carpet without any Angelina Jolie-esque leg-flashing moments, despite the deep split in the dress and some strappy sandals poking out.

Full curls in her long hair were swept to one side, showing off some killer gold earrings and beautifully contoured makeup.
