There’s over-the-top glamour, and then there’s understated elegance. The latter can be more powerful when executed the right way.

Take, for example, the gorgeous Gemma Arterton, who chose to wear a stunning cream-colored strapless gown by Gucci for the UK premiere of Tamara Drewe. Pairing the dress with little more than a straw clutch and tiny diamond stud earrings, Gemma allowed her natural beauty to be the most powerful element to her look, with minimal makeup and a simple ponytail maintaining the simplicity.
