While we’re used to seeing male stars playing it safe on the red carpet, it’s refreshing to see Eddie taking something of a fashion risk, posing for photographers in a striking tartan suit.

Also in attendance was Eddie’s new wife, Hannah Bagshaw, who he was visibly beaming to be standing alongside.
He also posed for pictures with his ‘The Danish Girl’ co-star Alicia Vikander, who opted for an unusual corset and skirt combo.

‘The Danish Girl’ tells the true story of Lili Elbe, the first transgender woman to undergo gender reassignment surgery in 1931.
Before she began living openly as a woman, Lili had enjoyed success as a renowned male artist, who was previously known to the world as Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener.

Thanks to his portrayal of Lili, Eddie’s name is already being whispered in the run-up to next year’s awards season, after a seriously successful run in 2015.
He landed the Academy Award for Best Actor In A Leading Role, as well as the Golden Globe and Bafta, thanks to his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in the biopic, ‘The Theory Of Everything’.
Eddie is showing no signs of taking it easy, though, and next year will appear in the big screen adaptation of JK Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’, the first in a planned trilogy of the ‘Harry Potter’ spin-off.
