Gemma, together with her mum and sister, attended the opening night performance of La Fille Mal Gardee at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden (London). The young women cut stylish figures as they clearly dressed to impress for the occasion.
Gemma wore a conservative black jumpsuit, which were embellished with a retro, cut-away collar in white. She capped the look with some black, semi-sheer sandals. (source)

DEADLINE EXCLUSIVE – Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Bill Nighy (The Second Best Marigold Hotel) are set to star in Their Finest Hour and a Half, with Lone Scherfig (An Education) directing.
BBC Films developed and co-finances the film, which is being produced by Oscar-nominated producers Number 9 Films and Wildgaze Films, led by Stephen Woolley (Made in Dagenham) and Amanda Posey (Brooklyn).
Gaby Chiappe has adapted Lissa Evans’s 2009 novel set in early 1940’s World War II London. A romantic comedy imbued with the screwball repartee of classic Hollywood of the time (think a Brit His Girl Friday), Their Finest Hour and a Half is a battle of the sexes that follows the misadventures of a British movie crew trying to make a patriotic film to boost morale during the Blitz.
BBC Films’ Christine Langan and Ed Wethered will exec-produce. HanWay, still hot off the headline-making $9 million Sundance sale of Brooklyn to Fox Searchlight, have boarded worldwide sales rights.
“Gaby Chiappe’s skilful adaptation of Lissa Evans’s brilliantly comic and moving wartime novel is a stunning film debut,” commented BBC Films’ head Christine Langan. “Their Finest Hour and a Half is a funny and touching romance with a great female lead role that is entertaining and emotional in equal measure,” added Hanway managing director Thorsten Schumacher.
The prestige pic is set for a late summer shoot, and reps another classy title from vet collaborators and Brit film industry stalwarts Posey and Woolley. Posey most recently produced Brooklyn with Finola Dwyer while Woolley has another stellar looking feature in the pipelines in Todd Haynes’ Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and Kyle Chandler. Elizabeth Karlsen is a producer alongside Woolley for that project. Hanway is handling sales on both those titles. (source)
Gemma attended the 2015 Olivier Awards yesterday (April 12) at The Royal Opera House in London. She looked splendid in a daring black dress and a minimalist gold necklace. Gemma was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical, but sadly she lost to Katie Brayben. Though, Gemma is amazing in Made in Dagenham and she’s a winner for us all anyway! :) Several photos from the evening have now been added in our gallery, enjoy!

LONDON EVENING STANDARD – Gemma Arterton and James McAvoy were among those present at this year’s Olivier Awards nominees lunch.
Arterton has been nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award in the category of Best Actress for her part in West End musical, Made in Dagenham. The 29-year-old could not hide her delight as she lined up alongside some of the UK’s finest theatre stars at the Theatre Royal on Tuesday.

The duo will soon learn their fate with the awards taking place at the Royal Opera House on 12 April. (source)
