Nicola Coughlan knows how to make fashion fun.

Coughlan, 37, dazzled in a purple and red ensemble at the Bridgerton season 3 part 2 premiere in Toronto, Ontario, on Monday, June 3. She rocked a pleated lavender mini dress from Sara Mrad featuring an abstract design, a strapless neckline and an A-line skirt. The actress, who plays this season’s lead, Penelope Featherington, paired the frock with a billowing red cape that cascaded into a train.

Styled by Aimée Croysdill, Coughlan accessorized with clear heels featuring rhinestone embellishments and gold earrings from Ysso.

For glam, Coughlan donned smokey eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, rosy cheeks and nude lips. Her blonde hair was parted down the side and styled in an updo with her money pieces framing her face.

On the red carpet, she posed with costar Luke Newton, who plays Penelope’s love interest, Colin Bridgerton. Newton, 31, for his part, opted for a gray suit featuring subtle stripes. He paired it with an oxford button-down top, a white tank top and brown leather shoes.

The two have been promoting the show together in style for the last several weeks. For the show’s part I premiere in London, the actors sweetly wrapped their arms around each other.
