Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen – 2014 BAFTAs

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.

Ruth Wilson In Antonio Berardi – 2014 BAFTAs

Ruth Wilson In Antonio Berardi - 2014 BAFTAsRuth Wilson was one of the first on the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs, held today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The British actress left the gowns for the rest of the girls, instead suiting up in metallic, menswear-inspired garb from Antonio Berardi’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Staying relatively true to the lookbook styling, she wore the structured, iridescent silver blazer and cropped pants as presented with the cummerbund-inspired peplum piece and white blouse.

Red toe-cap heels brought out the flash of red in the folded ruffle detail of the jacket.

The glam-rock edge was wholly present and accounted for, but she took it even further with her wavy and wild, sideswept ’do.

Are you missing the dress, or do you like this shiny, mannish moment?

Fearne Cotton In Scaasi – 2014 BAFTAs

Fearne Cotton In WilliamVintage - 2014 BAFTAsFearne Cotton was every bit the bronze goddess at the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The British TV and radio presenter, who is leading the award show’s E! Live From the Red Carpet coverage with Dermot O’Leary, took on the night in a memorable 1980 Scaasi gown long-sleeve gown from WilliamVintage that sparkled with a true aura of old Hollywood glamour.

She will be shining rather brightly alongside the stars she interviews with this copper-toned confection, swirled with allover, sequinned embellishment, which she paired with Jimmy Choo heels.

Adding more drama to her entrance, she wore her platinum blonde locks in a voluminous, teased and curled ’do whilst taking a slightly more subtle route with her makeup via a metallic smokey eye and a rosy-nude lip.
