My British Academy Film Awards Gown

A big THANK YOU to Monsieur Roland Mouret, who loaned me the stunning teal green Fall 2009 gown for the BAFTAs tonight.

I really wanted something sophisticated, warm and work appropriate – I didn’t want to be like Giuliana Rancic wearing a bright orange dress.

As I predicted it’s raining in London today, so the beautiful gowns (including my own) are going to get wet.

My fear is that possibly the stars will not want to stop and chat about their looks in the rain, so let’s pray for a rain break as they hit the red carpet.

For instant updates live from the BAFTAs red carpet follow me via Twitter.

    Oh my god ! I love this dress so bad ! The color is so nice and the cut is really sophisticated and work appropriate as you said. I can’t wait to see you wearing it.

    Any chance you’ll tell use what shoes you’ll wear ? What hairdo you have in mind ? (Sorry, I’m just so excited for you, I know it’s ridiculous).
