Celebs In See-Through Tops At Les Miserables Premiere – it seems that even the cold weather couldn’t stop a couple of celebs appearing at the Les Miserables premiere in see-through tops wearing no bra.
The world premiere of the movie version of Les Miserables was being held at the Odeon Leicester Square and it seems that both singer Ellie Goulding and model Laura Bailey had the same idea of how to get the most attention and exposure for themselves on the star-studded red carpet.
Ellie turned up wearing a see-through white dress with a small pair of briefs and no bra.
Laura wore a less obviously see-through pink dress but when the photographers turned their cameras on her it quickly became as clear as her top that she was wearing no bra.
25-year old Ellie had a quick start to her career when she won the BBC’s Sound of 2010 poll before her debut album Lights had even been officially released. The album went on to reach Number 1 in the official UK album chart. Her biggest single success came with her version of Your Song by Elton John which was used by John Lewis for their Christmas tv ad campaign in 2010. Following the extra exposure she received from the ad the single got to Number 2 in the charts.
Model Laura is probably less well-known than her fellow nipple flashing singing companion although apart from her modelling campaigns for various fashion lines she has also written articles for several UK newspapers and magazines and is a contributing editor for British Vogue. 40-year old Laura has also been appointed as a cultural ambassador for the British Fashion Council.
The new movie adaptation of Les Miserables is directed by Tom Hooper and stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sacha Baron-Cohen and Eddie Redmayne.
Anne Hathaway had a well-publicized physical change to make for the film as she not only had to lose loads of weight for the role of the emaciated Fantine but also had to have nearly all of her hair chopped off. She clearly delighted in the challenge of the role however as she has said that she would have had her teeth pulled out if the rile had demanded it.
Like the famous stage adaptation Tom Hooper’s movie is based on the classic Victor Hugo novel set in 19th Century France. The stage version of Les Mis has been a staggering success running for 27 years and so far has been seen by over 60 million people around the world. Hooper and his cast no doubt hope that their new movie enjoys a similarly successful run.
Reviews so far have been very good although there has been the odd critic who found the movie peaked too soon. The reviews for Anne Hathaway’s Fantine have been universally positive with many saying that her rendition of I Dreamed A Dream is the high point of the entire production.
There has already been talk of Oscar honours coming the way of Les Mis, no surprise really considering the high quality cast and the fact that director Tom Hooper’s previous movie The King’s Speech won the Best Picture Oscar in 2010.
Les Miserables gets its full UK cinema release on 11 January next year. Like the stage production viewing the movie is likely to be a long emotional journey for the audience as it runs for 160 minutes.
