The BAFTAs were held at the Royal Opera House in London. This glamourous affair saw the who’s who of the film fraternity dressed to the nines. However, some of them nailed the red carpet look while others struggled.
Julianne Moore wowed us in her Armani dress. Her monochrome halter neck dress with sweeping tails could easily have bagged her the “best dressed on the red carpet” award.
Kate Winslet, The “Best Supporting Actress” wore a black Antonio Berardi dress. She accessorised her perfect dress with diamond earrings, bracelets and a red clutch with roses.
Isla Fisher wore a stunning white Stella McCartney gown which she teamed up with a simple clutch, earrings, bracelets and glam red lippy.
Olga Kurylenko, a former Bond girl, wore a white lace column Ralph and Russo dress.
Emilia Clarke wore a stunning red Victoria Beckham fishtail maxi dress. Her dress did all the talking, which she teamed with a simple clutch and earrings.
Cate Blanchett wore an Alexander McQueen creation that was a mix of feathers and sequins. Daily Mail criticised the feathered part of the dress, dubbing it as a “yeti skirt.”
Laura Haddock wore a completely black outfit that featured a sheer top and a feathered skirt. She teamed it up with an ultra glam red lipstick and diamond earrings.
Adding to the feather brigade was Stephanie Powers, whose blue fishtail dress had a feathered topping that covered her shoulders.
British actress Bel Powley went for the colourful look in a Gucci dress. She accessorised her look with drop earrings and silver platforms.
Alicia Vikander wore a black leather Louis Vuitton gown featuring circular beaded detail.
