Last night was the 2015 BAFTA’s where “Boyhood” swept and the Red Carpet game was at an Award Season low.
I must say, I was rather disappointed by this Red Carpet. The BAFTA’s are a very big deal and only a select few ladies really brought it. I couldn’t even pull a “Top 10” from this Red Carpet; you’ll have to settle for a “Top 8.”
Even still, I managed to round-up some looks that were relatively on point.
So take a look, check out the poll, and enjoy!
BEST DRESSED LADIES AT THE 2015 BAFTA’S
Julianne Moore- Tom Ford
FINALLY: the Julianne Moore Tom Ford collaboration we’ve been waiting for. Showing up in a velvet and crepe plunging Tom Ford gown with a decorative neck design, Ms.Moore was ravishing in Red to accept her Best Actress BAFTA last night. Julianne Moore and velvet Tom Ford must be a thing because she previously attended the same awards in a Midnight Blue velvet Tom Ford.
Everything about this look is chic and on-point for me. Hair, make-up, those Givenchy platforms, the dark nail— it’s glamorous, timeless, and age appropriate while still being cool. What I also loved about this was that it was very Tom Ford Gucci years which is where my love affair for the Designer started. Ms.Moore also looked fantastic in a lacy Stella McCartney at a pre-BAFTA party with her designer pal Tom Ford the night before.
Not only did Ms.Moore win the BAFTA, but she got to hang out with the hunky Superman and Captain America. Now, isn’t that the real win?
Amy Adams- Custom Lanvin
Amy Adams continues her chic and timeless run during her “Big Eyes” Award season. Gliding onto the Red Carpet in a Custom White Lanvin gown, Ms.Adams looked every inch the movie star with stick straight hair, minimal make-up, and an embellished tasselled belt.
What is so gorgeous about this crepe cap sleeved gown is the streamlined silhouette. Not only does it fit her like a glove, but it’s fluid and simple making much more of an impact over the Princess looks Ms.Adams has done in the past.
I think I actually liked her post-BAFTA’s Menswear inspired look even more (can’t find the designer, very well could be Lanvin as well). It was super chic and the exposed bra was sexy without being vulgar. Props to Ms.Adams; I hope we see more of this from her.
Léa Seydoux- PRADA
Future Bond Girl Léa Seydoux was a knockout last night in this Dandelion Yellow PRADA gown. Everything about this look is working for her; the Old-Hollywood hair, the great silhouette, color, punchy Red lip. Even the cut-outs don’t bother me.
Well done. I hope we get more looks like this during her 007 press tour.
Keira Knightly- Giambattista Valli Couture
Keira Knightly has continued finding her groove. Which makes me very happy. Looking adorable and visibly pregnant, Ms.Knightly looked cute and cool in a Giambattista Valli Couture confectionery tea length gown.
While this is a lot of look (embellishment detail the bust, dual prints, etc.), she is pulling it off; complimentary hair and make-up is balancing the overall feel. What does let me down is the shoes. They’re beyond uninspiring and far too safe a choice.
What I love most about this look is that she threw on a quilted leather motorcycle jacket over her dainty dress. I love me a leather jacket dress combo and any chance to toughen up a particularly girly frock, I am in favor of.
Also, how hot is her husband?
Not going to lie: I was very surprised to see Dianna Agron on this Red Carpet. She’s not nominated, she’s not the face of a company right now, and I don’t believe she even presented. Regardless, the gorgeous “Glee” actress looked divine in a Lanvin strapless column gown with sexy slit.
Ms.Agron loves Fashion, which makes me very happy, but sometimes she goes a little overboard. Here is a case where she’s not; her hair and make-up are on point as well as her minimal styling by way of a simple gold cuff. She’s also not in a custom or fresh off the runway look. This is basically as “off the rack” as you can get for designer, and Ms.Agron is beyond workin’ it.
The shoes feel a bit contrived and heavy, but I can look past it as this is still a great look.
Rosamund Pike- Roland Mouret
Incredibly chic and simple, this is possibly the best Rosamund Pike has looked all Awards season. Her Black Roland Mouret column gown last night was elegant and event appropriate. While it didn’t leave me with a “WOW!” factor, it still had an impact as she let her beauty and height do all the talking. Her slightly asymmetrical choppy bob is also so on point.
While I’m hoping her Oscars look will leave us all salivating, I’m not holding my breath.
Reese Witherspoon- Stella McCartney
Reese Witherspoon was one of the few to don a British Designer on the British Red Carpet last night. In a very booby Stella McCartney gown, Ms.Witherspoon’s look was very simple continuing the minimalist trend she’s been favoring this Award Season.
While I can get on board with the color, as it’s very reminiscent of my very favorite look from Ms.Witherspoon by way of her Nina Ricci Oscar gown, I am not enamored by the hair or make-up. I am also not so keen on how the gown is fitting; there seems to be a slight bit of side boob showing and the straps are making her look very broad at the shoulders.
It’s kind of a letdown because this could have been a great case of modern minimalism. Oh well…
Felicity Jones- Christian Dior Couture
Like I said, I really had to pull for looks from this Red Carpet…
Felicity Jones continued her love affair with Dior Couture last night in this color blocked embellished gown. While I think her hair and make-up is actually quite nice, I am not too fond of this look.
We’ve seen many variations of this look so many times the past few years on the Red Carpet I couldn’t help but be underwhelmed and bored. Let’s hope if she wears Dior for the Oscars it’s show-stopping.
