Meryl Streep In Vivienne Westwood – 2012 BAFTA Awards

Meryl Streep showed off a sexier, more daring side on the red carpet at the 2012 BAFTA Awards in London this evening.

Perhaps as an ode to the British award ceremony and character she played in ‘The Iron Lady’, Meryl chose to wear a look by legendary British designer, Vivienne Westwood.

Meryl teamed her signature Westwood strapless black gown with a lightly embellished corset belt and a bolero with the same sparkling details.

This is a considerably revealing ensemble for the ‘Best Actress’ nominee, who we tend to see covered up and looking drab on the red carpet.

Despite her windswept hair, which is terribly aging, unfortunately, I do love this look for Meryl.

It’s her best look so far as it actually looks like she made a real effort on this occasion.

Gold hooped earrings and a bejewelled Anya Hindmarch clutch completed her look.

Tilda Swinton In Celine – 2012 BAFTA Awards

It’s freezing in New York, but my goosebumps are not for the cold weather.

Tilda Swinton rocked the red carpet at the 2012 BAFTA Awards in London this evening.

She opted for another chic minimalist look, this time from Celine’s Pre-Fall 2012 for a refreshing, unpredictable change.

The look appears to be a jumpsuit in the look-book picture, but on Tilda it’s more like separates.

Once again I love what she’s done with her hair. I hope Emma Watson is taking notes.

Embellished sandals and a Pomellato cocktail ring completed her look.

Jessica Chastain In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 BAFTA Awards

Despite the Fall 2011 trend of long-sleeved gowns, our red carpet favourites like Jessica Chastain braved the cold in London tonight wearing sleeveless gowns on the red carpet for the 2012 BAFTA Awards.

Jessica wore an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2012 gown.

Her pleated lamé mousseline gown with a plunging neckline was styled with a gorgeous diamond-encrusted necklace and embellished platform shoes.

The ‘can’t-clutch, won’t clutch’ actress styled her hair into loose waves and added a orangey-red lip colour to complete her look.

I haven’t seen the live pictures, but I can imagine that the pictures aren’t doing her justice as she appeared washed out in some and radiant in others.

Penelope Cruz In Armani Privé – 2012 BAFTA Awards

Penelope Cruz was the unexpected attendee at the 2012 BAFTA Awards in London this evening.

The Spanish beauty selected an Armani Prive gown in a rich merlot colour which complemented her dark colouring.

Her figure-flattering strapless gown, with a draped detail which wrapped around her waist and cascaded to the floor, was a bold choice on a cold night in London.

I would say I love this look from head to toe, but I’ve never been a fan of Penelope sporting bangs.

I was hoping she would’ve grown them out by now.

Sparkling silver jewels completed her look.

Here is the final round up of some of the other stars who walked the red carpet at the 2011 BAFTA Awards in London tonight.

Julianne Moore wore a blue velvet Tom Ford dress with a bow detail at the back.

Rosamund Pike opted for a dramatic mustard print Alexander McQueen halter gown which she paired with a McQueen gold clutch.

Gemma Arterton was my least favourite on the red carpet at this event.

From the hair, the make-up to the YSL black dress with a blue bow – nothing is working for me.

Everyone excluding Rosamund opted for red lippie.
