Alicia Vikander In Christian Dior – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Alicia Vikander embraced a minimalist aesthetic at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at The Royal Opera House in London on Sunday evening.

While most of us would have expected the BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee to glam it up on the red carpet for the big night, the young Swedish actress chose to keep things relatively restrained.

Alicia wore a black sleeveless round-neck Christian Dior gown with an asymmetrical hem and eye-catching cut-out back detail. She teamed her look with a pair of classic satin pointy-toe pumps and dangling earrings.

This choice may not have been high on impact, but I think this red carpet rising star looked stunning even without the bells and whistles. If I could change anything, it would be to infuse a bit of drama to her hair style.

Paloma Faith In Nicholas Oakwell – 2013 BAFTAs

Time and again, British singer-songwriter Paloma Faith has proven she’s none too shy to flaunt her wild-child flair on the red carpet. The 2013 BAFTA Awards hosted at the Royal Opera House in London, England were no exception.

Her Nicholas Oakwell design from the Spring 2012 Couture collection featured a flurry of sparkling embellishment smattered onto the silvery grey gown. The keyhole detail showed just enough skin to stay sophisticated.

But even all that glitzy dazzle couldn’t detract from the outrageous orange sculpture that was her hair.

The ‘Picking up the Pieces’ songstress paraded out the quirk factor with her elaborate ‘do; a twisted and turning riff on a beehive, accented with vintage-looking De Beers diamond hair jewelry.

An exaggerated brow and sleepy cat eye, along with a bright red lip, completed the beauty explosion.

Did you find Paloma’s BAFTAs entrance to be grand or just garish?

Jennifer Garner in Roland Mouret – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Jennifer Garner in Roland Mouret

Jennifer Garner managed to look incredibly chic and not at all bothered by the rain and the chill, as she flashed a big smile at the 2013 EE British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards hosted on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

Once again walking the red carpet in support of her nominated husband, ‘Argo’ star Ben Affleck, the actress captured her fair share of the limelight in a supremely sophisticated Roland Mouret Spring 2013 outing.

The chic graphic and architectural silhouette of this dress was highlighted with its waist-cinching sash detail and strong peplum, sculpted to Jennifer’s enviable figure.

The ensemble was manipulated from its runway debut to make it more appropriate for the red carpet with the exchange of a long black skirt for the shorter green version.

In addition to a Roger Vivier black clutch, the other finishing touches to this glamour-girl look came in the form of a simple updo and well-placed diamond jewelry.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 BAFTA Awards

Octavia Spencer took home the ‘Best Supporting Actress’ award tonight at the 2012 BAFTA Awards in London.

She wore yet another Tadashi Shoji custom look.

A black floral-detail silk skirt was paired with a tailored shirt for a chic simple look with plenty volume.

To be honest, I’m still unsure how I feel about it. My first thought was that she appears shorter than she actually is.

She accessorized with a black Yves Saint Laurent patent belt, Martin Katz jewels and on the red carpet she carried a red Judith Leiber clutch.
