Caitriona Balfe knows how to command a red carpet.

The Outlander star (37) was joined by her co-star Sam Heughan (36) for the world premiere of T2 Trainspotting in Edinburgh, where the hit show is filmed.

Never one for fads, the former model opted for understated elegance in a grey ribbed high neck dress, wearing minimal makeup with her hair slicked back into a tight bun.

The Trainspotting sequel takes place 20 years later and the cast reunited with director Danny Boyle on the orange carpet on Sunday night.

Next up for Balfe, during a brief break from filming the time-travelling romantic drama, will be an honour at the Oscar Wilde party, the Irish themed pre-Oscars bash in Los Angeles on February 23.

She will be honoured by the US-Ireland Alliance for her contribution to television, the latest string to her bow - after landing her second consecutive Best Actress Golden Globe nomination for the show, as well as SAG and Emmy nominations.

"It's been a great year for Irish actresses and we're delighted to honour one who is receiving well-deserved recognition for her success in Outlander," Trina Vargo, founder of the US-Ireland Alliance said.

"Given Caitriona's intense schedule of time travel, and the cold and rainy Scottish weather, our event should be relaxing for her. The one thing Outlander and the awards have in common is whiskey."
