Natalie Dormer hit the red carpet at the 2016 Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, wowing in a pair of Sophia Webster Rosalind crystal-heel satin sandals. The “Game of Thrones” actress was on hand to accept the Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award, which honors an actress who has reached a turning point through her work and contributions to the community.
Max Mara CEO Nicola Maramotti was there to present the award, saying, “She has a knack for making mythical, larger than life, fictional characters seem like well — real people.” Dormer is well known for her role as Queen Margaery Tyrell in TV’s “Game of Thrones” and roles in films such as “The Hunger Games,” “The Forest” and the upcoming “Patient Zero.”
The annual gala, held by nonprofit Women in Film, honors women and men who have helped to expand the role of women within the entertainment industry on and off the screen.
Taraji P. Henson was also honored at the event with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television, as she continues to garner critical acclaim for her role as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s “Empire.” Henson made a statement in a Marc Jacobs dress and Jimmy Choo heels for the occasion.
Other guests included Cate Blanchett, Claire Danes, Kate Beckinsale and Maria Bello.
