Nigella Lawson keeps it effortlessly stylish as she attends the opening night of Tom Stoppard’s new play Leopoldstadt

It’s no secret that she has an incredibly good sense of taste. 

And Nigella Lawson looked effortlessly stylish as she arrived for the opening night of Tom Stoppard’s new play, Leopoldstadt, in central London.

The television chef, 60, rocked a long white jacket with black kick flares as she was spotted in the foyer of the Wyndham’s Theatre.

She finished off her striking ensemble with a fresh pair of white trainers.

The personality wore her shoulder-length dark brown locks in loose waves with a centre parting.

Displaying her radiant complexion, the mother-of-two went with a minimal slick of make-up and mute pink lip.

She later took to Twitter to sing the show’s praises. ‘Just out of Tom Stoppard’s Leopoldstadt. Uncharacteristically but understandably quiet,’ she wrote.

‘But I do want to say just beautifully directed by Patrick Marber. And what performances. Good timing – in many senses.’

Leopoldstadt is a semi-autobiograpical tale charting the life of an extended Jewish family in the eponymously-named district of Vienna.

It runs from the quarter’s heyday as a cultural melting pot in the early 1900s, through annexation of Austria by Hitler in 1938, to the Holocaust that saw two-thirds of Vienna’s Jewish population flee before the rest were deported to the Nazi death camps. 

The stand-out characters are Adrian Scarborough as the businessman who marries a Catholic woman (Faye Castelow), who is having an affair with a devilishly dashing officer in the Austrian army (Luke Thallon).

Other attendees to the opening night event included celebrated author Tom Stoppard, who was accompanied by his wife Sabrina Guinness.
