The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is a charity organization that supports the arts, specifically of films, television shows, and video games. On February 10th at London’s Royal Opera House, they screened their annual awards ceremony honoring the best films to be shown on British screens.
Jennifer Lawrence is well known for her dry humor and refreshing honesty, and she is no different when posing on the red carpet. Her nude Dior gown with sequin embellishments was a showstopper, especially because the sequins were more densely packed on top than they were as they descended. However, due to the cold Lawrence pulled on a black, full-length coat for functionality. While unexpected, the jacket falls nicely with the draping at the bottom of the gown, and adds a little bit of drama with its dark palette and structural shape.
Anne Hathaway’s Burberry gown walked the line between being a casual date-night look and red-carpet stunner, so definite points for versatility. The embellishments at the top look fantastic with the lighting, drawing the eye upwards. It both accentuates her waist and lengthens her legs because of the high waist and built-in belt.
I’m a sucker for a bowtie! Like his Les Miserables costar, Eddie Redmayne also wore Burberry, and wore it well.
This amazing Dior Couture strapless dress is ridiculously cool, from the bright yellow color to the cool new shape. I love Marion Cotillard’s style! It takes guts to wear a yellow dress and red lipstick at the same time. And adding Chopard diamonds never hurt anyone!
This ethereal Christopher Kane gown is to die for. I love the sheer fabrics and soft floral embellishments, but the fact that it’s black definitely adds some edge, making this look my favourite one of the night. It’s both grown-up and whimsical, and she looks fantastic in it.
