Sherlock Holmes premiere and film fashion

I just went to see "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" at the cinema the other day. Brilliant film! I really recommend that you go and see it.
I was quite smitten with the fantastic 1800's fashion in the film, and decided to do a post on the fashion of two of the female roles. But first, some photos from the premiere of "A Game of Shadows" that was held at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California on Tuesday the 6th of December.

33 year old actress Rachel McAdams is looking stunning in her Marchesa dress on the red carpet. I would have preferred to see her in her brown locks though. I love her brown hair in the film, and think it suits her a lot better than this ashy blond colour.

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (31) is sparkling just as much as co-actress Rachel. Did they decide to match each other for this particular event?

The women have two completely different styles in the film. Upper class Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams) is always seen in massive multi-layered dresses with puffy skirts and tight corset tops, paired with suit jackets and hats with flowery details. Her hair is tied back in complicated hairdos with tight curls.

Rebellious gypsy woman Simza (Noomi Rapace) takes people by storm with her wild looks. She's wearing long flowing skirts, layer on layer clothes, lace detailed tops, scarves, manly hats and tons of chunky jewellery. I think her motto is that you can never have too much jewellery - she's wearing some amazing earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. Her hair is let down in tangled waves, with some sun bleached highlights. Noomi should definitely consider going for this hairstyle outside of the screen as well.

The film was very much like the first one - full of witty comments, clever solutions to problems, and lots of action. Comedy, mystery and excitement in one. Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law are both brilliant actors, and they are definitely the right men for this film.
