The BAFTA Fashion Moments Roundup

 

As our impatient wait for the Oscars is reaching its end, we are still searching for some magnificent fashion moments on the red carpet. The BAFTA was not one of them… Nonetheless, we still got to pick (very) few best dressed ladies.

One of the best looks of the evening was Bond girl Olga Kurylenko’s who shined in a beautiful white lace gown by Ralph & Russo.

Hannah Bagshawe, Eddie Redmayne’s wife, carries her pregnancy with such classiness which was accentuated with her scarlet gown : simple, yet elegant, shaping her figure perfectly!

We couldn’t but notice the extreme fondness of some stars for simple elegance like Kate Winslet in her Antonio Berardi black gown which celebrates her sexy curves and a touch of red with her Jimmy Choo clutch.

Heida Reed defied all the weather conditions and donned a perfect black gown with a sexy plunging neckline and a flowing chiffon skirt. Her waist is highlighted thanks to a think leather band.

We loved the upper part of Cate Blanchett’s gown featuring magnificent floral embroideries by Alexander McQueen. As for the skirt, well …. Can we skip to something else?

As for Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, let’s say the BAFTA look was her best so far among so many Louis Vuitton red carpet looks. We’re still waiting for a WOW moment… Maybe at the Oscars? (please, please)
