18th Annual BAFTA/LA Britannia Awards

Damn you Freida Pinto.

BDOTW is going to be hard enough.

The nude runway version of this Valentino Spring 2010 dress is beautiful, but the Indian beauty picked a black sheer version with a nude underlay which I absolutely adore.

Her look was paired with satin black heels and a Roger Vivier Canasta clutch.

I’m loving every thing about Emily Blunt’s Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture maroon dress from the waist up.

Her patterned skirt doesn’t quite work for me.

Had it been one block colour, I think I would been drooling over this look.

This appears to be a less formal event, so I will concede that she did make a great choice despite my reservations about the skirt.

I love the wrap around beaded bodice as it’s so interesting and unique, plus I adore her silver sandals, but that crystallized ruby clutch is to die for.

I know a lot of you find Claire Danes very boring on the red carpet, but I find her quite calming on the red carpet.

As much as I like big dramatic gowns, with bling and vibrant colours, you never see Claire making huge mistakes on the red carpet.

She has a formula, and it appears she is sticking to it.

For me this Oscar de la Renta look is in a long line for simple flawless looks for Claire.

Amy Adams wears a simple navy Azzaro dress with a twist, as it has a ruched detail going down one side.

All in all, this is a fantastically well dressed event.

Kudos to all these ladies.

    Claire Danes’ dress is so, so pretty. I agree with your summation.
    Though Emily wins the event for me.

    I agree about Emily’s skirt. I think it’s a third pattern that makes the look some of it’s oomph for me. Had it been the sequinned section, (which looks more red than maroon, but perhaps it’s the flash) or even just the draped marron section, I think the look would have been improved.

    I agree. Break the rules for one week 🙂

    I wouldn’t consider Freida for BDOTW. Emily blows me away!!!

    Why don’t you make an extra long list of contenders this week? It’s been a good week – fashion wise!

    At first, I thought I liked the Valentino dress better in nude. But then I really looked at Freida and I started feeling the black version. Beautiful dress is beautiful.

    I don’t mind the patterned skirt of Emily’s dress as much as I hate the fact that she didn’t wear her dress straps like the model’s.

      I jsut noticed that about the strap. I think that detail did look a lot better on the model!

    Seriously in love with Emily Blunt’s dress, pattern and all.

    It isn’t bad, but I’m not that fond of Freida’s dress. I actually like it better in the nude. It just doesn’t work for me in black.

      Also prefer the nude, the black just doesn’t look as beautiful to me.

    I LOVE Emily’s dress. I covet it, in fact.

  10. mm November 6, 2009 at 19:23 #

    Emily Blunt wins for me for this event. I love the dress and her shoe choice.

    Everyone looks great here (although I would have shortened Emily Blunt’s skirt slightly), but the winner by a country mile for me is Freida Pinto – yup, it’s gonna be a tough week for chosing your BDOTW list F.C.!
