Best Dressed/Pretty in Pink Award
As I hoped and prayed Freida Pinto did not let us down on the red carpet tonight, in fact she surpassed my expectations.
As we predicted she did wear an Oscar de la Renta gown, from the Resort 2009 collection.
The pretty pink dress was the perfect colour, and the 18th century Fred Leighton jewels she wore were the perfect compliment.
I hope this run will never end.
Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
What is not to love about Marisa Tomei in her gorgeous shimmering Etro Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown?
The actress walked the red carpet without her favourite Fendi clutch, which is a good thing because it would not have worked with this gown, but what did work were her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.
Brave choice for such a horrible rainy day.
Best On Trend & Best Unofficial Brand Ambassador Award
Amy Adams was on trend with her electric blue RM by Roland Mouret gown.
The mermaid gown is gorgeous. Not to over the top, very understated, very elegant. As usual Amy makes a quite impact on the red carpet.
Regular readers will notices that there is a bit of trend developing with Amy. The tends to be the unofficial brand ambassador for designers for 3 gowns, then she moves on.
Oscar de la Renta for Critic’s Choice Awards, a Pre-Golden Globe party and the Golden Globes.
Giambattisa Valli for the Motion Pictures Awards Gala, the Doubt UK Screening and the SAG Awards.
Now Roland Mouret for the Oscar nominees luncheon, the Pre-BAFTA party and now the BAFTAs.
Who will she pick next?
English Rose Award
Emily Mortimer was one of the few Brits not to stick to safe black, instead she wore a grey tiered YSL Resort 2009 gown, with a snake print bodice, and a cute velvet black bow.
Unfortunately it looks like her gown got caught in the rain.
Black Again? But I Love It Award
Kate Winslet wore a black Zac Posen mermaid gown.
Yes, I am a bit disappointed that it was not as vivacious as her electric blue Narciso Rodriguez gown, but her body is so damm amazing in this dress, that you just have to love her.
Best Vintage Award
After her pink Blumarine dress, Thandie Newton had a lot to live up too.
She does not disappoint in her black strapless vintage gown with gold detailing through-out, but I am not particularly wowed either.
Lady In Red Award
Sharon Stone was ravishing in wearing a red John Galliano Spring 2009 gown.
Not a hint of animal print. I admire her restraint.
Best Re-Run Award
We have seen this Stella McCartney gown twice before on Salma Hayek and Amanda Seyfried, but Laura Bailey’s blush pink revision is gorgeous, so all is forgiven.
Best Comeback Award
It has been a while since we saw the adorable Kylie Minogue on the red carpet in the UK, and girlfriend proved that she still has it.
She wore gold heels with her spaghetti strapped black Chanel Fall 2002 Couture dress, which had an interested detailed hem.
Just OK Award
Emma Watson is surprisingly not wearing Chanel, but Temperley London, which is a welcome relief.
That embroidered neckline is very much a trademark of Temperley, so this dress doesn’t feel particularly fresh to me as I would have hoped.
Best Necklace Award
I love the youthful glow that Goldie Hawn radiates.
She wore a black satin strapless dress – that did not squash her twins – with a stunning diamond necklace.
Best Impression of Mary Poppins Award
Meryl Streep channeled her inner Mary Poppins, as she sheltered under her umbrella from the horrendous British weather.
With her all black ensemble the legendary actress wore Fred Leighton jewels and Daniel Swarovski clutch.
Best Late Comer Award
I can not believe that I these are the only two pictures of Kristin Scott Thomas on the red carpet last night, and I had to wait until the following day to find them. I guess she arrived late on the red carpet.
Kristin looked as elegant as ever in this beaded vintage-inspired gown in midnight blue. The actress decided against fussy jewelery, opting to show off her flawless neckline instead.
