Gemma Arterton Looking Hot In Nude Dress In Morocco – the former Bond and St Trinians girl added a touch of glamour to the Jonathan Demme tribute at this week’s International Marrakech Film Festival in Morocco.
Gemma wore a long nude and lace gown by Marios Schwab to the event and showed off her great figure in the low-cut outfit which also showed off her legs with its split up the front.
The 26-year old actress hosted the tribute event although it was left to actor Terence Stamp to present the award to director Demme. He has directed a number of critical and box-office successes over the years including such movies as Phildaelphia, Rachel Getting Married, Beloved and Silence of the Lambs which won Demme the Best Director Oscar in 1991 and became one of only 3 movies so far that have won Oscars in all 5 main categories of Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay and Best Picture. In case you are wondering, the other movies to achieve this feat are 1934’s It Happened One Night and 1975’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
Gemma is currently shooting a new comedy written by League of Gentlemen writers Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton. The new predictably dark comedy will also star Tamsin Greig, who appeared in both `Black Books and Green Wing, as well as Katherine Parkinson from The IT Crowd and Anne Reid, Julian Rhind-Tutt (also from Green Wing) and Timothy West. The new series is being shot under the working title of Inside No. 9 although this may change before it airs on BBC2 in late 2013.
Gemma will also be seen on the big screen in 2013 when she appears in Hansel and Gretel opposite Jeremy Renner from The Hurt Locker, Avengers Assemble and The Bourne Legacy.
For many fans whatever else Gemma Arterton appears in during her career she will still be first thought of as either St Trinians headgirl Kelly or Bond girl Strawberry Fields from 2008’s Quantum of Solace.
The fashion star of the show’s opening was Cheryl Cole who wore an open fronted black jumpsuit that threatened at one point to expose more than just the singer’s cleavage.
Watching Cheryl’s performance today amongst the 16k crowd at the O2 Arena was her friend and manager Will.i.am who has not been in the UK public eye so much in recent months after he finished his stint as a mentor on BBC’s The Voice. After watching Cheryl get the crowd going with several solo numbers Will.i.am joined his friend on stage to perform the duet 3 Words with her.
The Jingle Bell Ball is undoubtedly the musical event to be seen at this weekend and apart from Cheryl Cole other performers include JLS, Little Mix, Bruno Mars, Lawson, Pink, Rita Ora, Girls Aloud and One Direction.
Seen backstage at the event today was Taylor Swift who apparently flew in specially for the show. Those following the new romance between Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles will not be altogether surprised to see her turn up as the couple seem to have seldom been apart in recent weeks.
