BAFTAs 2013 Red Carpet - Best Dressed
Column shapes ruled the red carpet at the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards tonight. Braving the freezing temperature and the snow, some of the film world's biggest red carpet stars walked the BAFTAs red carpet in London (some with coats, some without!).
While there was lots of black on the red carpet, there were also bold pops of column colour in origami and inventively draped gowns which were my stand-out favourites. Jessica Chastain got my forgiveness after that over-exposed SAG Awards dress when she wore this regal blue, sleek Roland Mouret gown. It fits perfectly and couldn't be a better shade with her porcelain skin and auburn hair.
Marion Cotillard also showed how to push your style on the red carpet with this dramatically draped primrose yellow Christian Dior Couture gown, with a voluminous drape from the waist that may have put many off and left it on the catwalk alone. The yellow shade is beyond complementary to Marion and if anyone could have pulled this risqué look off, it's her.
Wearing black very well were Anne Hathaway and Gemma Arterton. Anne Hathaway continued her red hot red carpet streak with this Burberry studded t-shirt shape gown. This understated shape and detailing worked so well with her slightly grungy hair and kohl-heavy eyes. Gemma Arterton's striped, nude and black, asymmetric gown was simply stunning and this sleek and elegant style seemed to reign supreme at the 2013 BAFTAs.
Who was your best dressed?
