    It is a rare day when Arsene Wenger leaves the puffa jacket at home to spend the night on the red carpet, but the Arsenal manager was snapped at the British Film Institute's inaugural fund-raising gala dinner this week

    Putting in an appearance alongside the likes of Sienna Miller and Ray Winstone, the Frenchman showed himself to be a supporter of the BFI.
