BAFTA Stars turn on the Glamour for a Sparkling Fashion Performance

Shining Stars…

This year’s BAFTA awards saw more glamour than usual, with many big names turning up for the event. The crowd was most definately dressed to impress. It could have been down to the writer’s strike in America, which saw the Golden Globes scaled down to a one hour press conference, coupled with uncertainty over whether the Oscars would get the go-ahead (though it looks pretty certain now a deal seems to have been struck). Whatever the reason there were some gorgeous gowns. The order du jour seemed to be long and many opted for romantic Grecian-esque dresses. Keira Knightley wore a beautiful tiered Valentino dress which, along with Marion Cotillard’s Grecian inspired Chanel Haute Couture creation, stole the show. Sienna Miller also wowed crowds in a simple yet head-turning black floor sweeping dress by Dior, perfectly offset by her red lips and diamond earrings.

Lust, Caution actress Wei Tang showed she has a great fashion eye by wearing new designer Jason Wu’s black on white floral dress. Jessica Biel went for understated elegance in a Dior gown and pulled it off perfectly. Eva Green, also in Dior, went for simple yet striking and got it so right. However, not everyone was fortunate enough to get it right…

Full marks for trying Tilda Swinton but something about this Dior creation doesn’t work. I’m all for people taking fashion risks but you should wear the clothes, not let them wear you, which is what happened in this case. And a legend you may be Julie Christie but I’m afraid it doesn’t let you off the hook. I’m not sure what possessed a usually well dressed Christie to opt for these trousers but all I know is they didn’t work.
