Between her portrayal of the title character in a 2006 TV mini-series based on the gothic novel Jane Eyre, and her role in the upcoming adaptation of the Russian tragedy Anna Karenina, English actress Ruth Wilson has built up quite the melancholy resume.
This dark streak was not reflected in the outfit Wilson wore to a recent awards ceremony. The actress paired an electric pink tunic with a pair of neatly tapered trousers. The strapless, slit-up-to-there tunic was equal parts sultry, and playful with its girlish hue.
The trousers struck a conservative note, but were counterbalanced by the addition of a sharp, stiletto heel. A simple envelope clutch and oversized gold bangle were Wilson's sole accessories. Makeup was also minimal, with the exception of a cherry red lip that should have waged war with the actress' aggressively pink top, but somehow provided the perfect, incongruous finishing touch.
