Emily Watson gives retro a go

British actress Emily Watson was clearly influenced by her latest role when she wore a pair of retro-looking tights on the red carpet last night.

The 47-year-old is playing the mother of Vera Brittain in Testament of Youth, which is based on the writer's memoir of love and loss during the First World War.

And Watson's choice of legwear at the premiere in London seemed in keeping with the vintage glamour that helps to add a touch of authenticity to the film.

Released on October 14, Testament of Youth takes audiences back to 1914, when Vera Brittain had to give up her dream of going to university to take up a nursing post.

It stars Swedish actress Alicia Vikander as Vera and Game of Thrones heart-throb Kit Harington as Roland Leighton, the poet and soldier who becomes her fiance.

But Watson appears to have taken the wartime world to heart, teaming her stylish tights with a black dress and a matching coat.
