BAFTAs Style 2013

A crimson carpet, sunshine-yellow gowns, a large volume of umbrellas and Stephen Fry. It could only mean one thing; the annual British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or BAFTAs, if you prefer. I do love films and fashion so, being British, the BAFTAs are a real treat for me. I must admit though I wasn't overwhelmed this year with the red carpet fashion but here are my top, stylish, leading ladies.


Monochrome, a key Spring trend, was rife on the red carpet. I particularly loved Elizabeth Olsen's dress. The pattern, texture and cut add a fresh take to a trend that has been overdone time and time again. The simple, natural make-up and the loose side-swept curls are ideal for letting this fabulous dress take centre stage.

This is just the perfect hue for Jessica Chastain's fair complexion and auburn hair. The silky material of the dress compliments the luxurious sapphire tone. This is how you make an impact the understated way. The dress and accessories don't scream for attention but the elegant cut and simplicity of the dress attain all the attention Jessica deserves.

Va va voom! Andrea Riseborough makes a very playful colour sexy and classy at the same time. There's no missing her in vivid yellow but Andrea guarantees that all eyes will be on her with the curve-emphasising shape of this gown. The hair is perfect for the dramatic dress, up with loose sections for a laid-back edge to juxtapose the gown.

I won't tell a lie; I've seen a lot better from Jennifer Lawrence. There is no denying that she is a beauty though and this dress is stunning. The pale pink of the dress is so soft and the embellishment adds instant glamour and a fun edge to the dress. Just like Elizabeth, the accessories are genius as they allow full attention to be on the dress. It pains me to say this, but I do dislike the hair as it is very non-descript. In my opinion, a messy up do would have been perfect to contrast the femininity of the dress.

Oh, Marion Cottilard. Just like Andrea, Marion uses a striking colour to brighten up the gloomy, grey skies of London, that seem to be inevitable at the BAFTAs. Colour aside, the leading credential of this dress is the innovative shape and mesh slit (not seen in the picture). A fresh twist on a peplum, if you will. Truth be told Marion would look beautiful in anything and her amazing bone stricture is displayed by her chic up-do.

When Anne Hathaway first showcased her pixie crop I wasn't quite sure. She still looked stunning but, in my humble opinion, longer hair suited her better. And then the BAFTAs happened. Now she has grown into it I love it! The side swept fringe is perfect for Anne's features and the dress is simple and classic, whilst the top embellishment sparkles up the dress. On a beauty note I love how Anne has opted for a soft, berry shade of lipstick rather than red lipstick, which would be fairly stock for this outfit. Loving the book clutch too.

  27. Great picture selection. I feel the same about Anne's hair, but I guess we'll see if it was worth it once we can see Les Miserables. I love the yellow dresses, I'm so glad you included them ;)
