Queen of the wet carpet! Alicia Vikander braves downpour to make dazzling appearance in chic gown at BFI Film Awards
With her sleek white dress and perfect updo, Alicia Vikander was perfectly glammed up to attend the BFI Film Awards in London on Saturday night.
But the 28-year-old actress didn't bank on the wet London weather.
Alicia was forced to hold up her gown above the soggy red carpet as she arrived at the Banqueting House venue.

Luckily the Oscar-winning actress was shielded by two umbrellas and a protective coat hastily thrown over her shoulders as she held her dress aloft.
However, it was more than likely that the star may have suffered from wet feet, with a pair of strappy white sandals her only defence against the elements.
She seemed to see the funny side though - at one point glancing up to the heavens with a big smile.

The romantic drama is based on the 2012 novel about a lighthouse keeper and his wife.

The cast and crew were forced to relocate to a wind-swept island off the shores of New Zealand for filming, living in trailers for several months.
Alicia recently confessed in an interview with Vanity Fair that seasoned actor Michael would ask her for help with his role, bringing them closer together.
She told the monthly: 'He was very sweet at letting me in... He was like, "Can you please give me a note? What do you think I should do?"
