Shirley's poetry in motion

Scottish actress Shirley Henderson showed she had the write stuff on the red carpet last night.

She looked divine in a black, long-sleeved shift dress, heels and tights as she posed for photographers at the premiere of Set Fire To The Stars, about the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.

The 48-year-old, who is best known for her roles in Trainspotting and Bridget Jones's Diary, stars opposite Lord Of The Rings actor Elijah Woods.

Her latest film, shot in black and white, could not come at a more fitting time as bookworms all over the world celebrate Dylan Thomas's 100th birthday.

Poetry fans have been heading to special readings and exhibitions in their droves, while there have also been performances of Thomas's most loved work, his radio play Under Milk Wood.

Set Fire To The Stars is taking advantage of the trend, telling the story of the writer's first trip to America in the 1950s.

And Shirley was on trend herself at the Ham Yard Hotel in London last night, keeping with the monochrome theme in a devilishly dark dress.
