Claire Foy, renowned for portraying Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown, stole the spotlight as she walked the red carpet in a breathtaking white Khaite Spring 2024 dress, exuding glamour even in the cold weather.
The 39-year-old British actress’ sultry gown featured a plunging V-neckline, delicate spaghetti straps, and a captivating backless silhouette.
Notably, two daring thigh-high splits showcased her toned legs, complemented by silver Aquazzura Olie metallic leather sandals, which we’ve previously spotted on Alessandra Ambrosio. You can buy them at Mytheresa.

Claire Foy’s Best Supporting Actress BAFTA Nomination
The limelight on Claire Foy continued well beyond the glitz of the red carpet. Earlier this month, she secured a coveted Best Supporting Actress nomination at the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Film Awards, recognizing her impressive performance in All of Us Strangers.
In the film All of Us Strangers, Claire Foy portrays the mother of Paul Mescal’s character despite their close age in real life. With only 11.8 years separating them, this casting choice adds an interesting dynamic to their on-screen relationship.
Reflecting on this unexpected turn in her career, she expressed in an interview during the event that she could never have imagined herself taking on roles of such depth and emotional resonance.

With the anticipation building for the BAFTA Awards ceremony on February 18, Claire is now poised to compete for the Best Supporting Actress trophy.
However, the path to victory will be challenging as she faces tough competition in her category.
Her fellow nominees include Emily Blunt for Oppenheimer, Danielle Brooks for The Color Purple, Sandra Hüller for The Zone Of Interest, Rosamund Pike for Saltburn, and Da’vine Joy Randolph for The Holdovers.
All of Us Strangers Oscars Snub and BIFA Nods
All of Us Strangers, adapted from Taichi Yamada’s 1987 Japanese psychological novel Strangers, is directed by Andrew Haigh and will premiere on UK screens on January 26.
It follows Andrew’s character as a screenwriter returning to his childhood home, navigating a blossoming connection with a mysterious neighbor, portrayed by Paul.
The story unfolds as the late parents materialize to Adam in his childhood home at the age they were when they passed away.
Despite high hopes for Oscar recognition, the Academy overlooked the film. It was a potential contender in categories like Best Picture, Best Actor for Andrew, Best Supporting Actress for Claire, Best Adapted Screenplay, and more. Still, unfortunately, it didn’t secure any nominations.
Nevertheless, the LGBTQ+ romantic fantasy triumphed at the British Independent Film Awards, scooping seven impressive wins.
Notably, it clinched the top accolade for Best Film, surpassing competitors like Femme, How To Have Sex, Rye Lane, and Scrapper.
Andrew Haigh, the English filmmaker renowned for works like Weekend and 45 Years, received Best Director and Best Screenplay accolades.
Paul shared the spotlight for Best Supporting Performance with Shaun Thomas from How To Have Sex. While Claire earned a nomination in the Best Supporting Performance category, she ultimately conceded the award to her co-star Paul.
