Take style tips from the film's leading ladies.

The first full trailer for Red Nose Day Actually, the sequel to everyone's favorite rom com Love Actually, has been released. Excited? So are we. You can check it out below:



Once you've calmed down, take yourself back 13 years to when Love Actually first hit our screens. It was a time when Jamie, immortalized by Colin Firth, proposed to Aurelia in Portuguese in the middle of her shift at the restaurant and, like everyone else’s, our hearts were filled with warm mushy love glue. Not only was Love Actually romantic and endearing but it was also heart breaking and harrowingly accurate. Who could forget the pain-staking moment when Emma Thompson’s character found out her husband had been cheating (sort of!) and as she sobbed her heart out to the soundtrack of the great Joni Mitchell, she wiped away her tears, putting on a brave face for the sake of her kids. Total agony. Yes, Love Actually still remains one of our favorite rom coms ever made and our excitement is bubbling over at the prospects of a sequel.
 
It’s not going to be a full movie – life isn’t that kind – but Irish heart-throb Liam Neeson, English rose Keira Knightley and a whole host of other actors from the original film, will be appearing for a ten-minute sequel so we can finally see what became of the characters we knew and loved. 

From the behind-the-scenes snaps it looks like Sam and his schoolboy crush, Joanna, have made love work for them – or at the very least they're still in touch. And perhaps Mark's (Andrew Lincoln) "to me you are perfect" signage had more of an effect on Juliet (Knightly) than we'd anticipated. It's rumored that they might have got their happy ending after all! Poor Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor). In any case, we'll be glued to our screens on March 24th when the mini-sequel airs on BBC as part of its annual Red Nose Day charity campaign, and then again on NBC on May 25th for those of us who won't be able to tune in live. 
 
In the meantime, get yourself into the Love Actually spirit by exploring the leading ladies' signature styles. With such a stellar cast, we’ve had to pick just 4 of our favorite female actors' looks for timely inspiration and these easy-to-replicate selections:

She started her career as a midriff-baring teen whose staple closet contained only hoop earrings and low-rise jeans, but as her career advanced towards Chanel, so did her styling skills. The Knightley of 2017 is now more likely to be seen in a flirty feminine dress that accentuates her slight, boyish frame (in a totally flattering way, obv). She’s often seen wearing in beaded pieces with plenty of lace, tulle and draping, everything that embodies femininity. When she’s not playing with dresses, she’s experimenting with a preppy look, pairing paperbag pants and blouses with turn-up cuff blazers. Subtly curled hair or a sleek up-do is her hairstyle of choice, beautifully heightening her ultra-high cheekbones.

Although Thompson has decided not to return to the big screen for Red Nose Day Actually because of the all-too recent death of her on-screen husband and life-long friend, Alan Rickman, we couldn’t compile a list of leading ladies' looks without including her. A prime example of fashion over forty, Thompson hits all the right notes in slim-fitting pantsuits. With or without a matching blazer, she pays close attention to fit and seasonal colors to create an iconic and flattering look that is dynamic and on-trend.

She may be a leading lady, but that doesn't exempt Linney's Love Actually character, Sarah, from the occasional, on-screen frumpy nightmare. Let's not dwell on that, though, because IRL Linney is a big advocate for bright colors and one-shoulder statement dresses. Complimenting her creamy complexion and strawberry blonde locks, she is often spotted on the red carpet wearing various shades of crimson and burnt orange, as well as classic neutrals like black and beige.

Alright, so Claudia only had a bit-part in Love Actually, but come on, she’s Claudia Schiffer! What we love about her signature off-duty look is that she really is one of us. She loves her jeans and knee-high boots, floaty boho tops and shirts as much as the next girl. Her down-to-earth style is utterly practical because really, who has the time to get dressed up to the nines when you’re doing the school run.
