Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Saoirse Ronan In Christopher Kane - 2013 BAFTA Awards

Saoirse Ronan opted for a sweet look by an edgy designer for the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday evening in London.

The Irish actress wore a Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 2013 black tulle gown with vibrant blue floral embroidery; styling the look with a simple top-knot.

A similar – shorter – version of the dress appears in the look book from this Pre-Fall collection.

Alice Eve In Alessandra Rich - 2013 BAFTA AwardsEnglish actress Alice Eve continued the sheer and solid graphic trend, also flaunted by Gemma Arterton and Zawe Ashton, at the 2013 BAFTA Awards hosted at the Royal Opera House in London.

She rocked a figure-hugging Alessandra Rich Spring 2013 gown, featuring flame-like detailing at the top.

But when paired with her teased, pompadour hair and sultry nude makeup, this design seemed a bit out of place for the awards ceremony. Another look for the Grammys, perhaps?

The peep-toe shoes with their clunky platforms did this dress no favours, but I’m not sure that the stark white pumps and belt from the lookbook would have fared better.

Helen Mirren In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - 2013 BAFTA AwardsDame Helen Mirren joined the ranks of hair chameleon Katy Perry and lavender-loving Kelly Osbourne with her shocking new ‘do, which she debuted at the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

To go with her hair, the Leading Actress nominee chose a long-sleeve gown from the Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2013 Couture runway.

Featuring floral embroidery, the chiffon dress was somewhat weighed down with its heavy lining and that shiny silver wrap. But at least she didn’t up her BAFTAs surprise factor even more by wearing the gown in its original, see-through runway incarnation.

It didn’t really matter what she had on, though, as her cotton-candy pixie cut was the main attraction.

She quoted ‘America’s Next Top Model’ as her inspiration behind the hair hue. My jaw is still on the floor.

Known for her classic grace on the red carpet, this was quite the scandalous departure for Helen.

She certainly gave the fellow Nicholas-Oakwell-outfitted Paloma Faith a run for her money in the hair department.

2013BAFTA_ZawaAshton

Zawe Ashton exudes a strong rebel chic vibe at the 2013 BAFTA Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London on Sunday.

I’m usually a big fan of the Zawe’s red carpet choices, but I can’t get behind this busy Julian McDonald Spring 2012 number.

The all-over embroidery and sheer skirted bottom on this gown induced some serious detail overkill; which had the actress looking a touch too theatrical on the red carpet.

Perfect for the Grammys, not so much on a cold rainy night in London for the BAFTAs.

Laura Bailey joined Marion Cotillard and Andrea Riseborough in their attempts to lift the gloomy weather by donning a zesty colour on the red carpet at the Royal Opera House in London on Sunday evening for the 2013 BAFTA Awards.

Braving the rain and the cold, she wore a bright red Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2013 sleeveless gown.

The gown may not have the pizzazz of Marion or Andrea’s gown, but for those who love the minimalist approach to red carpet dressing this look is sure to delight.

A Christopher Kane embellished clutch and emerald earrings completed her look.
