Sometimes, I get amazed at the GREAT lengths actors are willing to go through to portray a role. Remember Charlize Theron in ‘Monster’? She was hardly recognizable!
Well, for 2012, one actress who is currently making headlines for drastically losing weight for a movie role is Antonia Campbell-Hughes. The 20-year-old shocked everyone at the 56th BFI London Film Fest last week when she arrived on the red carpet looking reed thin and completely malnourished:

Well, bony frame aside, she did wear quite an interesting dress, don’t you think? That sheer powder blue number looks dreamy and delicate, and on someone healthy (and meatier), it will no doubt look beautiful.
Unfortunately for Antonia, wearing the dress only magnified just how thin and anorexic she was. Coupled with the chunky two-tone wedges, you could say it was pretty much a fail.
For the gals interested, Antonia’s dress is from Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2013 collection. No word yet on when it’s coming out in stores but here it is up close:

As for Antonia, a light colored shift dress with sleeves would have been a better choice. Such a silhouette would have covered her extra tiny limbs and made her appear at least 5 to 10 pounds heavier. These dresses from Shopbop would have done the trick. Do you agree?
