Since her debut in 007's 2002 adventure, 'Die Another Day,' this English actress has brought an artsy elegance to the red carpet. With her latest film, the hit 'Gone Girl,' heading into Oscar season, here are just some of her many great red carpet looks.
Going All Out for 'The World's End'
What better way to introduce Rosamund Pike's stellar style than with this intricately-laced number by London designer Marios Schwab? All sci-fi comedies need her on their red carpet.
Red Carpet, Blue Dress
Back in 2002, shortly after she was cast in 'Die Another Day,' the then-23-year-old actress was still adjusting to red carpet life at the 25th anniversary screening of 'The Last Waltz.' Nevertheless, her velvety blue dress made quite the impression.
Going for a Classic Look
Pike found her fashion mojo by 2005, and her Prada rose print dress and simple ponytail bring to mind two other classic cinema blondes: Eva Marie Saint in 'North by Northwest' and Catherine Deneuve in 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.'
Keeping it Simple, Beautiful
At the 2005 premiere for 'Doom,' the action movie based on the hit video game, Pike trades in a her alien-fighting gear for a strapless gown.
Taking 'Pride' in Her Appearance
Not many could get away with this 1980s-style frizz, but Pike rocks her new wave-ish locks with confidence at the 2005 premiere of 'Pride and Prejudice.' You'll note that this and the previous two photos were taken within two months. The woman is nothing if not versatile.
Turning Heads in Toronto
In 2007, Pike made a triumphant return to Toronto International Film Festival's red carpet, wearing another stunning floral number.
And the Oscar for Best Dressed Goes To…
Pike brings understated glamour to the world's most famous red carpet -- the Oscars' -- in this sunny yet understated gown by Roland Mouret.
"X" marks the spot as Pike stops traffic with cascading tresses and a side-cut dress by Gucci at the 2010 Venice Film Festival.
Pike's relaxed 'do and a bold bracelet make this ensemble suitable for both the 2010 Moet British Independent Film Awards in London and the parties afterwards.
A Date With 'Johnny English'
Pike ups the ante on girlishness in this double-layer dress at the Sydney premiere of 'Johnny English Reborn.' It's a perfect match for laid-back Austrailia as well as for the zany Rowan Atkinson comedy she's promoting.
Another Date With 'Jack Reacher'
Pike wore golden-hued dresses for many of the 'Jack Reacher' premieres, from Stockholm to Tokyo. But this one is our favorite.
