Helen Mirren in low cut black dress at Olivier AwardsWinners and Fashions From The Olivier Awards – tonight saw the good and the great from the world of British theatre descend on Covent Garden for the 2013 Olivier Awards.

As far as the awards go the evening’s big winner was undoubtedly the stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s brilliant 2003 book The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time.

Simon Stephen’s adaptation of the novel about Christopher Boone, a young Asperger’s Syndrome sufferer who sets out to discover who killed his neighbour’s dog, was nominated for 8 Olivier awards and managed to win a very impressive 7 of these including the award for best new play.

28-year old Luke Treadaway, who plays the part of 15-year old Christopher Boone took home the award for Best Actor. Although he has received some superb reviews for this role he seemed a little surprised to have won the award as his fellow nominees included Mark Rylance (Twelfth Night), James McAvoy (Macbeth) and Rupert Everett (The Judas Kiss).

Best Actress went to Dame Helen Mirren for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in Peter Morgan’s The Audience. This role is proving to be something of a lucky charm for the actress as she was playing Elizabeth II when she picked up her Oscar in 2006’s The Queen. She has never won an Olivier award before despite being nominated on 3 separate occasions.

As well as picking up the Best Actress award tonight Helen also won plenty of admirers for her outfit for the evening, a classy dark off-the-shoulder number.

She wore a long black dress that had very different styling from the normal red carpet black dress with its cutaway sections showing plenty of bare flesh at the back, sides and around her cleavage. She later presented the Best New Opera Production award to Einstein On The Beach.
