If you've not yet started dressing for the festive season, take a tip from Gillian Anderson - wear red and show some flesh.

The ladies turned out in force with a number of Christmas frocks, dressed head-to-toe in glitz and glamour at the BFI Imax in London for the UK premiere.

And it was actress Gillian Anderson who stole the limelight as she stepped out in a festive red frock with her cleavage shown off with its slinky cut.

The former X-Files star also went for some glitz with her accessories, opting for black and silver diamante earrings which matched her large ring.

She also adorned herself with a black clutch bag and cropped black jacket to add to the sophisticated look.

Star of the fourth Mission movie, Paula Patton, also outshone the celebrities at the UK premiere as she stepped out in a cream mini dress adorned with embellished jewels.

The actress, who plays one of the lead female parts in the latest instalment of the franchise, was happy to show off her supermodel legs despite the wintry London weather.

And she didn't even seem to notice the icy conditions as she fully embraced the festive season.

Gillian and Paula were joined by a flurry of females all dressing to impress with their own Christmas take, with many opting for seasonal red.

Normally a fashion faux pas at red carpet events, there were all shades of red also on former pop star Sinitta and model Caprice.

Catwalk beauty Caprice was also obviously feeling the Christmas spirit as she too went for a crimson number.

Ignoring the cold air, Caprice showed off her ample curves and long legs in a strapless red mini dress, while also going for gold shoes and accessories.

Simon Cowell's ex walked the carpet dressed in skintight red trousers with gold platform heels and a yellow top to brighten the look up even more.

Sinitta also gave herself a lick of red lipstick to fully complete the festive party get-up.

But Christmas clearly wasn't on the top of everyone's lists, as a few of the guests certainly needed some festive spirit injected into their wardrobes.

Star of the film Tom Cruise certainly wasn't feeling in the holiday mood as he dressed in black, with trousers, jumper, shirt and jacket all playing it safe.

Co-star Lea Seydoux also opted for head-to-toe black, but gave a small glimpse of the party season with her gold clutch bag and bracelet.

And guest Jenni Falconer also kept it plain and simple in black skinny trousers and pointy shoes.

Simon Pegg and his wife Maureen McCann also steered clear of the festive theme with their simple ensembles.

The actor looked dapper in a grey suit and black shoes, while Maureen went for a cream longsleeved dress.
