The Ukrainian-born Bond girl Olga Kurylenko attended The Russian Film Week Golden Unicorn Awards at the Langham Hotel in central London. The stunning actor and model donned a long black gown and strings of diamonds for the ceremony. She accomplished her look by the dazzling round clutch studded with innumerable Swarovski crystals that, although couldn’t outshine the diamonds, definitely added the wow factor to her entrance.
Celebrities and personalities included founders of Raindance Film Festival and British Independent Film Awards and long-time business partners Elliott Grove and Suzanne Ballantyne, celebrity photographer and journalist Joe Alvarez and model Tamara Orlova-Alvarez. The Russian film elite was also in attendance. Actors Egor Beroev, Regina Myanni, and Dmitri Dyuzhev, actor and film director Vera Glagoleva attended the event among others. Not surprising, the London is undoubtedly the cultural capital of Europe and it has always been a lucrative and very prestigious destination for Russian elite.
Russian Film Week Golden Unicorn Awards
The inaugural Awards ceremony – the pinnacle of the Russian Film Week – honoured the ‘best films about Russia’. Russian Film Week was founded with the aim to improve cultural relations between Russia and the UK. The organisers of the Russian Film Week insist that their event is above politics. Part of the profit from the Russian Film Week went to the registered charity Gift of Life. The patron of the charity is Russian actor Dina Korzun who was also in attendance.
The gala dinner took guests well into the late hours of Sunday as they were treated to champagne and three-course dinner.
