Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior - 2013 BAFTA Awards

‘Silver Linings Playbook’ starlet Jennifer Lawrence attended the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday, hosted at the Royal Opera House in London.

The current face of Miss Dior, she naturally chose a Christian Dior Couture design for the affair, although chilly, rainy environs necessitated a long overcoat that initially clouded the red-carpet arrival of the gown.

Once she removed the dark wrap in the press room, a strapless, ballet pink confection emerged, where a waterfall of iridescent sequin embellishment added a note of radiance.

With the gown’s sparkle, Jennifer skipped a necklace in favour of a long, geometric pendant earring.

A strong smoky eye and severely swept-back hair finished this look.

The Leading Actress nominee has lately had a rough go of it on red carpets, battling illness and some rather ill-suited sartorial statements.

With this more glamorous and girly exit from Jennifer, she continues to show she’s a red-carpet wild card. Was this look an ace for you or not?

2013BAFTA_SallyField

Sally Field is the one star during awards season whose red carpet style has been hard to predict.

On Sunday she took to the red carpet at the Royal Opera House in London for the 2013 BAFTA Awards wearing an Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 gown with De Beers jewels.

With a conservative plunge and a flattering fit, Sally’s anthracite grey gown with lace macramé panel detailing couldn’t be more age, season and weather appropriate.

Like most stars at this event Sally kept accessories to a minimum, opting to carry the must have accessory at this rain soaked event – a brolly.

Thandie Newton in Louis Vuitton - 2013 BAFTA AwardsThandie Newton must have been in a seductive mood, as she hit the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at London’s Royal Opera House.

The British actress followed the lace trend with her black Louis Vuitton halter gown.

She also capitalized on that frequently seen thigh-high slit, not to mention the sheer and solid obsession, as the itty bitty LBD was overlaid with see-through laciness.

Thandie paired the dress with a black handbag and gold Art-Deco-inspired earrings.

A bold red lip and tightly wound, side-swept curls finished this vamp-star look, although the overall effect may have translated more sleekly with a simple updo.

Gemma Arteton cut a graphic figure at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at The Royal Opera House on Sunday in London.

Keeping her nude-and-black velvet striped diagonal one-shoulder Celia Kritharioti Haute Couture 2013 gown simple, the British actress didn’t add any fussy accessories.

A lovely updo and subtle makeup completed her look.

As lovely as this look is, I think many others stood out above Gemma at this event.

Andrea Riseborough In Vivienne Westwood - 2013 BAFTA AwardsBritish actress Andrea Riseborough also opted for yellow to chase away the chill at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, hosted on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

After her frou-frou- and floral-filled turn in a Chanel Resort 2013 frock at the BAFTA nominees party, Andrea took a harder line with her more straight-laced Vivienne Westwood Couture gown styled with De Beers jewels.

The strapless creation still had some frill factor, though, with the ribbon-like detailing at the bodice.

However, the overall effect wasn’t as polished as it perhaps could have been, as the dress appeared a bit rumpled and wrinkled.

The contrast between Andrea’s jet-black hair, which was haphazardly pulled into an updo, as well as her black handbag and black lacquered nails was all a bit harsh against the yellow.

Such a colour combination should perhaps be left to the bumblebee.
