Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu – 2014 BAFTAs

Lea Seydoux In Prada - 2014 BAFTAsLéa Seydoux was a beauty in blue on the red carpet of the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted on Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ‘Blue is The Warmest Colour’ starlet looks to have taken inspiration from the title of her film in this sapphire Miu Miu scoop-neck gown with sequin embellishment.

Wearing yet another luxed-up confection by Miuccia Prada, the actress showed off her version of the still-ubiquitous sheer skirt trend.

She styled the look with Chopard white diamond chandelier earrings and a dramatic blue smoky eye.

The see-through skirt may be slightly off-putting for some. But, if nothing else, the rich indigo colour was absolutely divine on Léa with her side-parted, flame-red locks, which were coaxed into finger waves.

Another moment of Miu Miu perfection, or are you left underwhelmed?

    The dress is awful ! It looks cheap and tacky. I like the hair and the make up but not with this dress.

    • Anj February 16, 2014 at 23:31 #

      I imagine this is what a prom dress would look like 100 years from now. It is tacky but strangely designed. I agree that everything above the neck looks great though.

    • Noemi February 17, 2014 at 08:08 #

      I agree with you. Cheap is the first word that came to my mind.

    The top is perfec. The make-up is very appropriate with the color of the dress. BUT I don’t like the bottom of the dres.

  3. Lisa February 16, 2014 at 21:30 #

    If it wasn’t sheer at the bottom, I would have actually liked it. Its looks a little tight at the top, but I could have overlooked that if the skirt wasn’t sheer.

    • Christine February 16, 2014 at 21:32 #

      Agreed. Her makeup and hair is so gorgeous. Love the detail on the top half.

    • Milla B. February 16, 2014 at 21:44 #

      Agree. The sheer skirt is the problem. If it wasn’t for this detail, the dress could be quite amazing.

    The color is divine, but I’m not sold on the organza (?) skirt on top of a minidress. It looks like an unfinished idea. Maybe if it were pants or a longer skirt …

  5. Yeliz February 16, 2014 at 21:34 #

    This would’ve looked a lot better if the skirt wouldn’t have been sheer. It just makes the gown look cheap. This look can’t get near her previous flawless Prada look.

  6. ysh87 February 16, 2014 at 21:40 #

    Whoa! I don’t care for the skirt like many of you, but that color, the hair and make-up and that FACE make this look for me. Also if you think about it, a proper skirt with neckline and sleeves might make the gown a bit too mature for her.

    • Valissa February 17, 2014 at 10:29 #

      I completely agree! This look is stunning and looks so striking on Lea. Everything just works so flawlessly…the hair, makeup, colour and yes even the sheer bottom.
      This is my favourite of the night..

  7. Nat39 February 16, 2014 at 21:45 #

    Great colour on her, gorgeous hair and makeup, and she is totally selling this look to me.

    I love it. H2T perfection imo.

    If the skirt wasn’t sheer, the dress would be better for someone like Helen Mirren.

  9. mm February 16, 2014 at 23:36 #

    The hair and make up and those earrings steal the show. They elevate the dress.

  10. Beth Rodrigues February 16, 2014 at 23:49 #

    this is the only “sheer” skirt I’ve liked..I think she wears it very well and the color..Divine!

  11. kane February 16, 2014 at 23:53 #

    I just can’t. Instead, I echo the above: top looks cheap, skirt completely out of balance. Don’t really understand the dropped waist when the skirt still goes further up, but I do wonder if a longer underskirt (if not fully lined) had helped. Anyways, love her hair and make up, but the dress is a miss.

  12. stacey February 17, 2014 at 00:55 #

    completely stunning

  13. CTgirl February 17, 2014 at 01:20 #

    Someone needs to let her stylist know that you either show mounds of cleavage or leg (especially with a sheer skirt) but not both without looking tacky.

  14. RockandDors February 17, 2014 at 03:37 #

    Looks like a cheap prom dress.

  15. Alina February 17, 2014 at 04:56 #

    I love what is happening from the waist up, but the bottom of the dress is not my cup of tea.

  16. Tamara February 17, 2014 at 05:19 #

    Agreed with everyone on the dress- not great! But the makeup isn’t really working for me either, it’s just too harsh especially with this look and her red hair.

    Lea’s uniqueness to me on the red carpet is her French effortlessness- her visible under eye circles and her bare facedness with a pop of bold lipstick (like that divine look a while back where her eyebrows were nonexistent, face was pretty bare and she had this deep wine coloured lip on). She is stunning and I still love her but nothing about this look is working for me.

    lovely from the waist up. that hair and makeup is just perfect

  19. manja February 17, 2014 at 08:27 #

    perfect from waist up,don’t like the bottom not because it is sheer but due strange design

  20. Jess2 February 17, 2014 at 11:53 #

    I am not overly taken with how the skirt is falling from the hips but holy cow does she work this dress! The styling is absolute perfection, I love how the lavender shoes bring out the beading and her hair and makeup is gorgeous.

  21. Olive February 17, 2014 at 15:14 #

    This picture does not do it justice, there are much better pictures where she looks divine.

    • Catherine Kallon February 17, 2014 at 16:48 #

      Dear Olive,

      I would like to explain the picture process.

      When blogging live, you tend to take the first available picture because you have to work quickly to get that post up and several posts after it.

      While I will agree that there were probably many other better pictures which were then uploaded to Getty (the picture agency I solely use during live events) and other agencies, this would’ve been done after I had purchased the first one I had found of Lea.

      It may seem easy, but blogging is actually a complicated. And since I purchase my pictures, I can’t go and take that purchase back and ask Getty for a better picture.

      I hope this gives you a clearer understanding of the picture process.

      Best Catherine xxx

    There’s no point pretending that she doesn’t look gorgeous or the dress does not suit her. Infact, she’s working the hell out of that dress which is not the answer to red carpet glory. I don’t like where the sheer part starts. I don’t like the sheer trend but Lea looks phenomenal thanks to hair and make up. I also love the upper part of the dress.

  23. Prudence February 17, 2014 at 18:30 #

    that top is squishing her boobs so badly and that skirt skirt is just plain ugly and cheap looking
