They wed in a three-day festival over the summer and it seems that Dawn Porter is every inch the supportive wife.

The 33-year-old TV presenter decided to honour her husband Chris O'Dowd's new film by stepping out in a bright dress in a bright gemstone hue.

Dawn donned a bold blue dress as the couple took to the sparkling carpet at the premiere of The Sapphires at the 56th BFI London Film Festival tonight.

The outfit boasted a tulip skirt tied together with bows and was teamed with a pair of black court heels.

Irish actor Chris looked dapper in a tailored black suit and extremely shiny shoes for the occasion.

And while the Bridesmaid's star actually appears in the film, it was his wife Dawn who proved to be the photographers darling.

The brunette was seen striking a pose for snappers all on her own, as Chris met up with his co-stars.

The film is set during the Vietnam war in 1968 and tells the story of four Aboriginal singers who are put together by a talent scout as Australia's answer to The Supremes.

Chris plays the role of Dave, the group's manager.
