The 46-year-old star not only won the Best Actress award for her performance in the Young Vic’s A Streetcar Named Desire, but also looked radiant as she did so.

Arriving at the London Palladium wearing a black and yellow floral print gown, Gillian was more than happy to pose for photos on the red carpet.

Her strapless dress featured tiny yellow flowers and a striped skirt and looked incredible against her porcelain complexion.

She teamed the glamorous gown with a small black clutch bag, statement earrings and wore her hair up in a chic bun.
