BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie – My Best Dressed

Lupita dior BAFTAs BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie   My Best Dressed %tag

This year the EE British Academy Film Awards fell in the middle of London Fashion Week so I felt like I kind of missed the whole excitement of the red carpet, seeing it back in pictures is just not the same, especially when it seems to have produced the best fashion in a number of years.

It was sad that both Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock didn’t attend, I would have loved to see what they would have worn, but I was glad to see that ’12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o was once again on top form in this stunning emerald-green silk Christian Dior haute couture strapless gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection.

Everything about this gown was beautifully and was easily my best dressed gown of the night and it was nice to see that Lupita really did come to London to impress. I loved it all from the jewel colour to the metallic belt and arm cuffs to the dramatic train – simply gorgeous. I really couldn’t have asked for more from her and seeing this gown has made me excited to see what she wears for the Oscars.

Another look that caught my eye was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in near-identical outfits. Not quite as cool as Madonna and her son at the Grammy’s, but I love Angie in this menswear-inspired look from Saint Laurent – it is so chic and sophisticated.

What makes this look great is the styling, I love that she wore her white shirt slightly unbuttoned to add a causal vibe to the look, which looked perfect with the untied black bow tie. Finishing off this look were those black Saint Laurent heels – the patent shine really worked with the tuxedo-stripe to the trousers. Another great look for my women in suits Pinterest board!!!

I really think that Angelina pull off this tuxedo better than Brad Pitt in his Valentino – what do you think?

Who was your best dressed?

BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret

BAFTA j garner rolandmouret BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret %tagWho: Jennifer Garner

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

Wearing: A monochrome Roland Mouret ‘Alava’ gown from the spring/summer 2013 collection, featuring an architectural peplum and sash, teamed with a Roger Vivier clutch, diamond drop earrings and a bracelet

Verdict: Wow, Jennifer Garner really has been a stylish wife during this award season supporting her hubbie Ben Affleck, who last night took home the Best Director and Best Film BAFTAs for his film Argo. I really have enjoyed her return to the red carpet and this exquisite, structured and sophisticated Roland Mouret gown looked incredible on her last night.

There were a lot of monochrome looks and this was by far my favourite, I love the architectural detailing around the waist, the sash really does clinched in her waist, and what I adore is that you wouldn’t even know it was cold and snowy as she doesn’t let it bother her one bit.

Finishing her amazing look was a gorgeous up-do, diamond jewellery and of her flawless make-up.

I seriously can’t wait to see her Oscar look!!!

BAFTA Awards: Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab

BAFTA SJP BAFTA Awards: Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Sarah Jessica Parker

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

Wearing: A black three-quarter sleeved Elie Saab jumpsuit, featuring a boat-neck, keyhole detailing, and structured panels to the bodice and waist from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with black heels and Fred Leighton jewellery

Verdict: I do love a jumpsuit on the red carpet and it seems that Elie Saab leads the pack on the most glamorous styles. I loved this bold look from SJP, I know people on Twitter were saying that it wasn’t award ceremony worthy, granted but she wasn’t nominated, wasn’t promoting a film, and was just there to present and I think that allows for a little more creativity, plus I think the cold weather played a part.

As much as I love the look I wish the neckline wasn’t so high, was a little revealing to add a touch of sex appeal, plus maybe a little embellishment, but I can’t deny how cool this outfit looked on last night’s red carpet.

I am also loving her poker straight hair and heavy make-up to her eyes – I just can’t help but loving this look and wishing I could pull off a jumpsuit!!!!

BAFTA Awards: Anne Hathaway In Burberry

BAFTA anne burberry BAFTA Awards: Anne Hathaway In Burberry %tag

Who: Anne Hathaway

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

Wearing: A black column Burberry gown, featuring short sleeves and a studded bodice, teamed with gold bangles, and a book-inspired clutch, showing off a vintage cover of Victor Hugo’s novel, Les Miserables

Verdict: With a rainy red carpet at last night’s BAFTAs a lot of the actresses covered up with huge coats, I am talking about you Jennifer Lawrence, while Anne Hathaway wore a sensible, slightly warmer option with this sporty, simple Burberry gown.

Even though this was one of my favourite looks of the night, I loved the understated shape and the bodice detailing really did shimmer on camera, it did leave me a little torn as I don’t think it was glamorous enough for the BAFTAs, a premiere yes, the British answer to the Oscars not so much.

But what did wow me about this look had to be her incredible book clutch, a tribute to the movie that has gained her a lot of recognition this award season. It was such a great touch to a simple outfit.

Her make-up and hair was also another highlight, which to be honest has been immaculate throughout the award season, but last night I loved her slightly grundy pixie, kohl-heavy eyes, and that pop of pink on her lips – it really did make her look incredible.

BAFTA Awards: Marion Cotillard Looked Radiant In Dior Couture

BAFTA marion dior BAFTA Awards: Marion Cotillard Looked Radiant In Dior Couture %tag

Who: Marion Cotillard

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

Wearing: A strapless canary yellow Dior Couture gown, featuring a voluminous draped detailing from the waist and a sheer panel to the side from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with a Chopard diamond necklace and ring

Verdict: I have been wondering whether someone would wear this Dior Couture gown, I should have known that only Marion Cotillard could pull off this dramatic look, and I am so pleased that she did as it really brightened up the red carpet last night. Not just because of the colour, which was radiant, but because someone took a risk and it totally paid off.

I think this dress could have worked just with the billowing drape below the waist and didn’t necessarily need the sheer panel to the side, I think anyone other than Marion might have left that on the catwalk, but it does make you look twice at the gown.

Finishing up her look, Marion went for full on bling with her diamond necklace courtesy of Chopard, which I love, retro waves and an Old-Hollywood red lip – she looked breathtaking.

Do you rate Marion’s fashion-forward red carpet look?

BAFTAs: Jennifer Lawrence in Stella McCartney

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

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

Wearing: A strapless navy Stella McCartney gown with a black embroidered corset

Verdict: When I saw this on TV I thought it worn a little low, don’t get me wrong it is a gorgeous dress and looks stunning on her, but I am surprised that she wasn’t hitching it up all night. The black detailing on the corset is exquisite, but for me it is all about the navy skirt, I am a sucker for navy.
