Why Imogen Poots Is Our One to Watch For 2014

18/06/2014 - 02:00 PM

If you don't already know Imogen Poots, be prepared to become very well acquainted with her in 2014. The young actress has a slew of films out this year, starting with Need For Speed with Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper and Brit flick A Long Way Down. But fashion fans may know her better as the face of Marni [1] for H&M [2] and Chloé fragrance. Since her breakout role in the horror film 28 Weeks Later, she's been a firm favourite with fashion brands for her quirky English rose look, wavy blonde hair, and model figure (her older brother is actually a male model). Imogen favours brands with a sense of fun like Prada [3], Miu Miu [4], and Marni, but she isn't afraid to pull out all the stops in a dramatic gown by Givenchy [5] or Nina Ricci [6]. Take a look at some of her fashion moments to date, and watch this space for more from one of our new red carpet favourites.

A sheer panel gave Imogen's Christopher Kane [9] dress an extra touch at a screening of Greetings From Tim Buckley during the Tribeca Film Festival.

Imogen made a brave choice for the Berlin premiere of A Long Way Down opting for a lace Marc Jacobs [10] dress that showed off her underwear.
