Hailee Steinfeld In Marc Jacobs – BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party

The first thing I said when I saw Hailee Steinfeld at the BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party was, “thank god she wore the modified version.”

The young actress attended this event wearing a Marc Jacobs scalloped organza dress.

Her cocoa and white scalloped organza dress has a full tiered skirt and a polka-dot bodice.

The model’s version would’ve been too sexy for someone as young as Hailee.

I’m really beginning to love her young feminine style, so I’ll pass on criticizing her on her footwear choice on this occasion.

Vanessa Williams In Dries van Noten – BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party

The BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party took place in LA last night.

“Desperate Housewives” star Vanessa Williams took to the red carpet wearing a Dries van Noten ‘Darby’ dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

Her particular dress didn’t take the runway, but you can tell its’ Dries by the distinctive floral print.

The multi-coloured brush stroke print asymmetrical neckline dress with a cascading frill going down the back, was paired with the most unfortunate black and grey striped Sergio Rossi heels.

Dakota Fanning In Valentino Couture – 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards

Dakota Fanning went for a simple effortless look at the 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards last night.

The young actress wore a romantic Valentino Fall 2010 Couture gown which surprisingly doesn’t overwhelm her.

Her blush strapless gown isn’t grand or over the top, it’s very appropriate for a young star like Dakota who doesn’t want to got the Miley Cyrus route on the red carpet.

My only problem with this look is her hair as it looks like she just rolled out of bed.

Dakota never really does much with her hair, so I think a new style is long overdue.

At this point I would get over excited about a ponytail.

Olivia Wilde In Michael Kors – 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards

I was honestly blown away by Olivia Wilde at the 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards, which was held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in LA last night.

Yes she’s wearing my least favourite red carpet colour, but she looked so elegant oozing class and sophistication.

The dress may be too informal for some because of the black cashmere top, but the long sweeping sequined skirt makes this look for me.

A chic updo, flawless neutral make-up and minimal accessories were the key to this stunning look.

I would’ve been tempted to over accessorize this look by adding statement jewelery, but all it needed was her Judith Leiber clutch.

Does anyone love this as much as I do?

Carey Mulligan In Preen – 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards

When I saw Carey Mulligan on the red carpet at the 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards I thought finally a youthful, fresh, interesting look.

Carey has long been dressing as if she’s much older, thus making it hard for many of us to relate to her or like her style.

Last night she became the first actress to wear a look from the recent Preen Spring 2011 collection.

I love this Preen beaded and bonded dress.

I would even go as far as saying her stone textured beaded sleeveless top and black A line skirt look better on Carey than the model.

Does Carey read my blog?

Because she wore an electric blue pair of YSL Palais pumps when black pumps would’ve been the most obvious-safest choice.

Either way I’m liking this new direction.

Sleek hair and flawless make-up completed her look.

Marion Cotillard In Elie Saab – 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards

The 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards took place last night with many of our favourite stars hitting the red carpet.

As fashion lovers we are still in trying to get over Marion Cotillard’s previous red carpet look, but she made an improvement last night.

The French actress proved that it was a one-off by dazzling on the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab dress.

Her shimmering powder blue dress with a draped sleeve was paired with black Jimmy Choo ‘Neptune’ sandals and a black clutch.

I like the dress, love the red lippie but I’m not fond of the accessories.

We know Marion’s can do better, but I do like how she showed off a bit of her personality with a quirky quiff updo.

18th Annual BAFTA/LA Britannia Awards

Damn you Freida Pinto.

BDOTW is going to be hard enough.

The nude runway version of this Valentino Spring 2010 dress is beautiful, but the Indian beauty picked a black sheer version with a nude underlay which I absolutely adore.

Her look was paired with satin black heels and a Roger Vivier Canasta clutch.

I’m loving every thing about Emily Blunt’s Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture maroon dress from the waist up.

Her patterned skirt doesn’t quite work for me.

Had it been one block colour, I think I would been drooling over this look.

This appears to be a less formal event, so I will concede that she did make a great choice despite my reservations about the skirt.

I love the wrap around beaded bodice as it’s so interesting and unique, plus I adore her silver sandals, but that crystallized ruby clutch is to die for.

I know a lot of you find Claire Danes very boring on the red carpet, but I find her quite calming on the red carpet.

As much as I like big dramatic gowns, with bling and vibrant colours, you never see Claire making huge mistakes on the red carpet.

She has a formula, and it appears she is sticking to it.

For me this Oscar de la Renta look is in a long line for simple flawless looks for Claire.

Amy Adams wears a simple navy Azzaro dress with a twist, as it has a ruched detail going down one side.

All in all, this is a fantastically well dressed event.

Kudos to all these ladies.
