Nicole Kidman, Gemma Chan and Gillian Anderson lead the best-dressed guests at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards By Charlie Teather Evening Standard: November 23, 2015
During an evening put on predominantly to celebrate those actors and actresses who have taken to the stage this year, The Evening Standard Theatre Awards welcomed a number of A-List celebrities whose style choices were almost impossible to ignore.
In a perfectly-fitting coral red knee-length dress with a low-cut neckline and simple straps, Anderson’s figure was highlighted and flattered thanks to the look’s simplicity. Accessorising with a metallic gold clutch and matching sandals gave the classic look a more modern edge.

Gillian Anderson on why you should see "Sold" By Lauren Moraski CBS News: November 2, 2015
Based on the international bestselling novel by Patricia McCormick, "Sold" chronicles the life of an 13-year-old girl who is trafficked across the Nepal-India border and forced to work in a brothel in Kolkata, India.
"I don't think a lot of people fully realize what an industry sex trafficking is in the world. Forced labor, child labor and sexual exploitation generate about $150 billion every year," said Anderson. "It's all ages -- from toddlers to teenagers. On the one hand it's easy to disassociate because it's on the other side of the world. But the fact is what the campaign is bringing to the light is that it's also in our own backyard," she said, citing places like Washington D.C. and New Jersey.
"High school students go missing and they are either forced into indentured labor or forced into prostitution where there is violence and they don't get paid for being a sex slave," continued the actress. "And they get brainwashed into being a part of a community and they are terrified for their lives to escape -- and even sometimes when they do escape for how they are then treated like criminals when they are picked up by law enforcement. They end up going straight back into it ... It needs attention." Read more…
With every 10K raised, SOLD can open theatrically in an additional city.
