I felt the need to come back to that from the Grammy music infomercial. The 2013 BAFTA Awards Red Carpet was fabulous and a handful of my favorite stars were there, braving the bad weather and keeping their smiling faces and fashion suits on.
Talking about the soaking weather: one of the funniest to walk in front of the photographer’s flashes was the lovely Marion Cotillard. She was a genuine ray of sunshine in her bright yellow Dior Couture dress!
But she was oh – so – precious with her faces – you’d think the snow would melt her! At least we know she was human, I would’ve done exactly the same, I can’t stand being cold.
Another one of my favorite BAFTA Red Carpet girls was Jessica Chastain: she dodged the snow flakes in a shiny blue Roland Mouret strapless dress, looking all lovely and stylish. This is, by far, the best fashion choice she’s made all throughout this Awards Season!
Another lovely lady, another Pre Fall 2013 design: Thandie Newton’s Louis Vuitton black lace dress. Perhaps here too we’ll get to identify the exact same dress in the LV Fall 2013 collection? Either way, Thandie seems to favor shorter dresses for official events and this time was no different as she opted for a short lace dress with lace sheer skirt.
Amy Adams and Sarah Jessica Parker were both wearing black Elie Saab creations for this edition of the BAFTA Awards. But that’s not to say they were wearing similar outfits, au contraire! Amy Adams’ Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture black dress had lace inserts while Sarah Jessica Parker was wearing a black jumpsuit from the 2013 Pre Fall collection. Much like Beyonce’s jumpsuit, Sarah Jessica Parker’s outfit was particularly flattering but also a very surprising Red Carpet choice.
Although slightly dizzy, I can still say that I liked Gemma Arterton’s black striped dress from Celia Kritharioti Couture 2013 collection.
As far as Jennifer Garner, Elizabeth Olsen and Saoirse Ronan’s dresses go, I don’t feel as excited as I felt for the previous ones. Jennifer Garner was wearing a Roland Mouret black and white dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection but looked like she was wearing some kind of fancy apron over a black dress.
Elizabeth Olsen was wearing Chanel Couture (from the Fall 2011 collection). Enough said.
Saoirse Ronan’s Christopher Kane black dress with blue flowers appliqués , although not as strange looking as Jennifer Garner’s didn’t impress me. I strongly believe Saoirse can do so much better fashion wise than this Pre Fall 2013 collection dress! (images Getty; styledotcom)
