Olivia Colman chooses VB dress because 'you can eat'

Tuesday February 7, 2012

Olivia Colman has joked that she chose to wear Victoria Beckham to the London Evening Standard British Film Awards – because it meant she could eat more.

She revealed: "I've been looking at all her clothes and I think they're really pretty."

Showing off her roomy dress, the actress added: "And you can eat and you don't have to breathe in, which is always worth it."

The dress was of a similar design to Victoria's creation for the royal wedding last year. 

Olivia won Best Actress for her role as a battered wife in Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur.

It was the latest in a run of awards for the actress.

"I'd like to be cool like lots of people and go 'Yeah, it's in the downstairs loo', but they're absolutely all over the mantelpiece, polished," she quipped.
