Actress Kerry Washington opted for a dramatic evening gown for the premiere of Django Unchained in London last night (January 10).

The 35-year-old wore a patterned white Giles Deacon frock featuring a fitted, high necked bodice and a voluminous puffball skirt with an asymmetric hem.

She paired the beautiful dress with a pair of matching pointed heels.

The stylish star wore her hair in a beautifully curled faux bob style, while a dark berry lip and smokey eye makeup finished off the glamorous look.

Her co-star Jamie Foxx was also out to impress in an aubergine suit by Ozwald Boateng and a bright aqua coloured shirt.

Django's Unchained's director Quentin Tarantino posed with Christoph Waltz, who has been nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

The film's star Samuel L Jackson eschewed a traditional suit for a grey wool jacket and black trousers for the event.

Django Unchained has also been nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
