On screen in Doctor Strange, Rachel McAdams plays a surgeon and the love interest of titular character Stephen Strange. On the red carpet, though, she is — always — an incomparably elegant star whose magnetism is undeniable.

The latest example of her fashion dominance? A red carpet screening of her new film in London this week, where McAdams drew the focus of all in attendance. Wearing a sheer Elie Saab couture gown, covered top to bottom with embroidered doves and bluebirds, the actress brought to life a dress that is a work of art in its own right.

Elie Saab debuted the dress on the runways of Paris Couture Week earlier this year as part of his fall/winter 2016 “Impressions of New York” collection.

In an Instagram photo of the dress, the designer wrote, “Uplifting nature’s presence in the city. A sense of freedom and invitation to dream,” which we think does a gorgeous job capturing the gown’s essence.

The gown’s embroidered, three-dimensional details give it exactly the kind of head-turning quality that a star like McAdams deserves.

While McAdams’ role in Doctor Strange is relatively small, she announced recently that she’ll be playing opposite Rachel Weisz in Disobedience, the film adaptation of a novel by Naomi Alderman that follows the life of an Orthodox Jewish woman who is in love with her cousin’s wife.

We can’t wait for that film’s release, but we’ll happily bide our time staring at Rachel on the red carpet until then.
