A biscuit with your tea? Europe here we come for a plethy of gorgeous dresses and not so award winning looks coming to you from the BAFTAs…
1. Lea Seydoux in Prada
One of the top looks of the entire awards season. Not just the BAFTAs but the whole of the awards season. It is flawless, there is nothing wrong at all with this look. I love the dress for so many reasons but the highlight of this look is the colour. So few people could pull off the sunny yellow look in such spectacular, classy and glamorous fashion. It is fitted to perfection, her hair is lovely and the red lip was a bold but beautiful choice. The cut outs were essential in keeping the look youthful. LOVE IT. Can I be her?
2. Laura haddock in Ashi Studio
Attention, please wave your hand for Princess Laura at the BAFTAs ladies and gentlemen. This is the best example, in a longtime, of a princess tulle moment without making a woman look like a girl playing dress ups. The colour, minimalistic jewels and her hair swept back into a bun to rival the real British princess all equal a fairytale look that is appropriate for a red carpet. The neckline reveals a little bit of skin so she doesn’t look like she’s drowning in tulle. My only request would have been a bright lip such as a deep red or berry which would have popped against her dark hair and pale skin. A small complaint is that I wish that one of the nominees was wearing this dress. Although a fabulous red carpet partner to the handsome Sam Claflin I’m hoping the nominees who have worked hard to be up for awards get just as much credit for their looks.
3. Keira Knightly in Giambattista Valli
Keira you are getting better and better with carpets. This dress suits Keira to a T, being interesting and textured as well as neutral coloured. The reason why the black and white dress works is because it keeps to this palette. The silouhette doesn’t overwhelm her small frame but aptly covers her baby bump. Keira’s hair looks good and pairing the dress with simple black pumps was a good idea. Few girls could pull this look off but Keira looks glowing. I’m also glad that she wore a tea length dress to mix it up as her next big event will be the Academy Awards where the dress code demands a floor length skirt.
4. Dianna Agron in Lanvin
I ummed and arghed about putting Dianna Agron on this list, predominantly because I’m so in love with her style and there were so many looks at the BAFTA’s which were almost perfect. It was tough choosing 4 and 5. But in the end Dianna made it for the styling of her dress. A lot of the BAFTA ladies had lovely dresses but the styling eg. jewels, bags, shoes, hair and make up was sub par. A dress does not by itself warrant a position on the best dressed. Dianna’s make up and hair was fresh and youthful while her gold cuff suited her red Lanvin dress. The dress fits perfectly and I’m glad she didn’t drench herself in diamonds. The one and only issue are the shoes. A simple black pump would have sufficed.
5. Laura Baily in Emilia Wickstead
Simplistic elegance. Generally I’m not a fan of monochromatic looks but I couldn’t get over how incredibly good she presents. The hem is perfect and the neckline looks gorgeous on her. This dress works because of her ability to dress to her figure. She is a model and you can tell as the dress is well fitted to her; her height added to the success as she was tall enough that the dress didn’t drag on the floor, which would have pulled your eyes to the average looking bottom of her dress. Her earrings and neat up do works well with this dress. My issue is that the white palette gave her an opportunity to jewel it up a bit, which she didn’t take. The red carpet is supposed to be a bit of fun Laura, take some risks!
