My BAFTA Red Carpet Makeover

My BAFTA Red Carpet Makeover

Ever wondered what it is like for your favourite actresses to get red carpet ready? To be honest I probably think about this way more than I should, and thanks to BAFTA and House of Fraser I’ve experience a little of the fun, the pampering and the divine dresses and jewels, thanks to their amazing style suit preview. 

This happened a few weeks ago, I have sadly been waiting for the pictures so wasn’t able to share with you earlier, but the preview was basically a run through for the BAFTA TV Awards that took place on Sunday night. Did you all watch? I thought Graham Norton was hilarious as ever, but the red carpet was less than inspiring.

But hey back to my red carpet experience, without the red carpet, where I was given the A-list treatment from BAFTA’s style partners – from red carpet ready hair by Mark Hill to a makeover by MAC, and I was even styled up by House of Fraser, they have a gorgeous red carpet ready collection of gowns, and the final touch was to be bedazzled by the stunning pieces from Carat London. Each stop was like a fairytale dream, I don’t think I have been that pampered since I got married.

BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab

bafta-amy-adams-eliesaabWho: Amy Adams

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A black lace Elie Saab gown from the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013 collection, featuring Chantilly lace and embroidery to the bodice, back and sleeves, and a thigh-high split to the front, teamed with gold Casadei heels and Fabergé earrings

Verdict: This gorgeous evening gown was pure glamour and stood out on last night’s BAFTA red carpet as one of the most exquisite black dresses and bless Amy she must have been freezing with all that lace on show.

When I first saw this gown on Amy I have to be honest I thought it was a little too sexy for her, she is normally elegant and glamorous, where as this is sex-bomb territory, but you know she pull it off perfectly and I think added the gold platform heels was a great touch.

I also have to give her one of the best hair-dos of the night as well, I love her top knot, a great hairstyle for the snowy conditions, and it allowed her to show off those statement ruby and diamond earrings.

This sexy look was unexpected from Amy – but I love it – do you think she pulls it off?

BAFTA Tea Party: Charlize Theron In Stella McCartney

Who: Charlize Theron

Where: At the BAFTA 18th annual awards season Tea Party at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles on Saturday

Wearing: A sleeveless yellow and grey lace brocade Stella McCartney cocktail dress with cut-out detailing on the bodice and a peplum from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with Christian Louboutin heels and a Bottega Veneta clutch

Verdict: I know this was at the weekend but the Golden Globes took over and I forgot to post it but I am loving Charlize’s revival on the red carpet that I just had to include. I have to be honest I haven’t been that fussed by Charlize well that is until this award season, I loved her black lingerie-inspired Alexander McQueen and I fell in love with her Dior number at the Globes and this is another sleek look from her. Everything from the lace detailing to the vibrant colour just works so well with the sophistication of the pencil skirt falling just below-the-knee. Perfect attire for tea!!

Who: American actress Hailee Steinfeld

Where: At the British Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award ceremony at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A black Miu Miu gown with a sheer embellished bodice and black skirt falling just above the ankle, teamed with a bright clutch

Verdict: Hailee really is the chicest 14-year-old I have ever seen, I adore Miu Miu, and I love this midi black embellished gown. I know that there will be some people who think that this is too old for her, and would rather she wear something whimsical like Marchesa, but come on this is a girl with style and she rocks this look for me.
