We’re fascinated by the BAFTAs for some strange reason. Maybe it’s because of our love for all things across the pond — like Victoria and David Beckham, the Royals and fish and chips. This year, the EE British Academy Film Awards (sounds more grand in full form, doesn’t it) took place at The Royal Opera House, today. Sunday, to be exact. We’re okay with the 10 best-dressed ladies on the red carpet. Were we expecting to be more in awe of the fashion? Sure. But that’s just our weekender buzz which always extends our expectations. Two stars floored is the most on this list and for totally different reasons other than being dressed awesomely. Jessica Chastain leads the way for finally getting it right. All right. As in, not even one element of her look wrong, as she normally does. She looked divine in her cobalt blue, architectural marvel of a Roland Mouret gown. Paired perfectly with Jimmy Choos and classy Harry Winston jewels. Then, there was Dame Helen Mirren, who we plain adore, and who rocked the red carpet with a pink bob. We repeat — she rocked it in a pink bob. She’s 67-years-old and she flippin’ ballered a look we couldn’t pull off. We’re loving her dove grey Nicholas Oakwell gown with the silver pashima, as well.
Anne Hathaway‘s Burberry column with the striking silver rivets all over the bodice looked fantastic. The hot pink lippie was an excellent touch, too. Marion Cotillard‘s sunshine Dior gown from Raf Simons’ Spring 2013 Couture collection could only have been pulled off by her. She wasn’t the only one in yellow. Andrea Riseborough took on Brit designer Vivivienne Westwood, wearing a saucy daffodil colored couture gown with ribbon detailing over the bodice which matched her ribbon Brian Atwood shoes. It made her look wonderfully hour-glassed, unlike Jennifer Lawrence who needs to be fed some hot stew or something. Does she still have pneumonia? The sport wore a lovely white Dior Haute Couture dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, Chopard jewelry and a Judith Leiber bag, but looked alarmingly skinny. There were also two semi-goth looks this evening. The goth element being added by black chantilly lace through Thandi Newton‘s Louis Vuitton and Amy Adams Elie Saab gowns, respectively. Alicia Vikander in a minimal Christian Dior mullet dress and Juno Temple in Stella McCartney complete the list. Have a look through the gallery for the full looks and tell us who your favorites are!
