Olga Kurylenko In Burberry – 2014 BAFTAs

Olga Kurylenko In Burberry - 2014 BAFTAsOlga Kurylenko dazzled at the 2014 BAFTAs, held on Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The actress and Bond girl took a slinky spin down the red carpet in a Burberry gown that brought the sultriness in spades with its black V-neck, plunge bodice and bandeau top.

The bow detail at the waist added a touch of sweetness, while the shimmering scales of the bronze-and-copper red skirt looked every bit inspired by a mermaid.

Sexy bombshell waves and barely-there makeup topped off the dramatic look with a light and fresh appeal.

Amy Adams In Victoria Beckham – 2014 BAFTAs

Amy Adams In Victoria Beckham - 2014 BAFTAsAmy Adams took a dramatic spin down the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ‘American Hustle’ star and Leading Actress nominee sizzled in a black Victoria Beckham column gown, featuring a sheer-effect bodice and contoured silhouette.

What really took this classic look into a fiercer fashion category was Amy’s styling, including her deep berry-stained lip, oxblood-lacquered nails and spit-slick side bun.

Of course, her vampy siren pose didn’t hurt either.

Do you like Amy’s walk on the darker side?

Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen - BAFTAs 2014Cate Blanchett elegantly descended on the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ star and Leading Actress nominee stunned in a sleek, jet-black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 short-sleeve column gown, emblazoned with an exploded, silver floral print at the sides.

Injecting a touch of quirk into the look was a silver Chopard statement necklace, featuring a cluster of branches and birds.

A loosely swept-back updo and fresh, barely-there makeup ensured that this moody-chic entrance stayed on the good side of the drama club. Do you agree?

Angelina Jolie attended the 2014 BAFTAs, in support of husband Brad Pitt and ’12 Years a Slave,’ today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The actress stayed true to her more understated style of late in a tailor-made, menswear-inspired ensemble from Saint Laurent.

Oozing casually undone sophistication, the tuxedo-inspired black blazer and belted pants were given a carefree edge with the partially unbuttoned white blouse with black bowtie detail.

She accessorized effortlessly with black Saint Laurent pumps, sweeping her long brunette waves to one side and swiping on a black cateye and nude lip.

Angelina may be one of the few who could pull off this mannish moment on the red carpet.

Lupita Nyong’o In Christian Dior Couture – 2014 BAFTAs

Lupita Nyong'o In Christian Dior Couture - 2014 BAFTAsLupita Nyong’o dressed to impress at the 2014 BAFTAs today (February 16), which were hosted at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ’12 Years a Slave’ actress yet again flexed her fashion muscle in a dazzling, emerald-green gown from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection, worn with Christian Louboutin heels.

The rich, jewel-toned hue had me at hello. Add to that the metallic belt and the long, theatrical ball-gown train, and this is what red-carpet dressing is really all about.

No doubt using the belt as inspiration, she accessorized with Ana Khouri gold ‘Ildeman’ cuffs and gold-and-pearl ‘Laura’ earrings, thankfully not going overboard with a necklace.

Once again stunning not only with her dramatic style, but also her makeup, she complemented the look with a pretty magenta lip and smoky charcoal eye.

Laura Carmichael In Erdem – 2014 BAFTAs

Laura Carmichael In Erdem - 2014 BAFTAsLaura Carmichael was also at the 2014 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

Eschewing a long gown in favour of a shorter cocktail dress, the ‘Downton Abbey’ star wore an Erdem Pre-Fall 2014 strapless, forest-green frock.

Featuring the label’s signature florals, this greenery was of the darker, moodier variety, although the specks of sparkling embellishment brought a lighter note to the design.

That embellishment was really all there was to be found here, as she skipped any sign of statement jewels, completing the look with Gianvito Rossi black-and-metallic strap sandals and casual, half-up, half-down hair.

Simple and chic, or were you left wanting more from this look?

Sai Bennett In Chanel – 2014 BAFTAs

Sai Bennett In Chanel - 2014 BAFTAsSai Bennett attended the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The rising starlet stepped out in a sprightly white gown from the Chanel Resort 2014 collection, studded with pearls on the mock peplum waist. You could nearly imagine Coco Chanel herself wearing this languid, ’30s-inspired dress, with its near-boyish charm and straight-laced silhouette.

Shown on the runway dripping in pearls on the runway, Sai simplified the styling by removing the strands and instead wearing a statement, giant pearl earring set from Chanel Fine Jewelry.

Long, crimped waves, swept to the side, along with an enticing fuchsia lip, finished off the look with vintage-modern flair.

Gillian Anderson In Vintage Balmain Couture – 2014 BAFTAs

Gillian Anderson In Vintage Balmain Couture - 2014 BAFTAsGillian Anderson took to the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The actress selected a vintage 1949 Balmain haute couture gown from WilliamVintage.

Colour-blocked in shades of blue, the strapless dress featured a tiered bodice, which tied in the back with scarf-like panels that floated to the bottom of the navy ball skirt.

In keeping with the blue theme, she wore matching gemstone and diamond necklace and earrings.

Even so, something seemed to be missing here. Perhaps a statement lip lacquer, or a different ‘do, would have made all the difference.
