BAFTA Award Winners And Fashion Favourites

The BAFTA awards 2015 have shown LA that the Brits know how to do awards shows. The red carpet was a never ending Conga of A’list celebrities – as soon as one passed, another equally famous person followed in their wake. As for the award winners themselves – the Brits cleaned up!

It’s no surprise that Eddie Redmayne won again, adding to his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards and making an Oscar almost guaranteed. But I’ve got the full list of winners at the end of this blog post so let’s get on with the glamorous business of seeing who wore what. It’s always inspiring to see what works well in a formal environment and then we can try to copy it for our next big events. Personally, I like to try something new and I’m constantly looking at the celebs for ideas. These are my top 10:

(1) Amy Adams

A full length white evening dress always looks fabulous and draws attention, plus its so flattering for most skin tones.

(2) Bond girl Lea Seydoux

bafta-lea-sedoux

I have to admit I didn’t know much about Lea before this, except that she’s starring in the next James Bond film, but something tells me we’ll get to know her soon. I love this yellow dress on her!

(3) Keira Knightley

Keira Knightey disguised her baby bump in a monochrome midi dress – it was all about the texture!

(4) Reese Witherspoon

Reese opted for a brave colour choice as there was nobody else wearing deep purple, but she pulled it off. The shape was very flattering – in at the waist and allowing her to show off her hourglass curves.

(5) Rosamund Pike

Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike kept it really simple in a black maxi dress and looked effortlessly cool and composed.

(6) Julianne Moore

Julianne was a woman in red as she presented an award during the ceremony. The long sleeves must have come in useful as it was freezing that night.

(7) Felicity Jones

It looked like Felicity was having a Cinderella moment on the red carpet in her fantasy inspired dress with 3D flowers. It must have been a Cinderella year for her too after so many award ceremonies in which her film always wins and good on her for not going too fishtail nor too Hollywood with her style of dress.

(8) Hannah Bagshawe (Eddie’s off-screen wife)

But talking of Hollywood, Eddie Redmayne’s wife looks to have made the transformation. She looked stunning in a silver maxi dress, holding her own against all the A’listers.

(9) Dianne Argon (Quinn in Glee)

Dianna’s strapless red dress really suited her as if you look at her skin it’s flawless. Dressing well on the red carpet is all about knowing your best features and accentuating them.

(10) Natalie Dormer

Natalie is the latest celebrity – after Amal Clooney – to wear gloves on the red carpet. I wasn’t entirely sure of them at first but the blue colour makes them more interesting. They’re definitely a talking point!

Ricardo Monteroon I have been following your blog for only three monhts, but I have to say that I am really going to miss it! It ends with the quality, simplicity and personal humour with which you have written all your stories. I think that it is us who have to thank you for sharing a part of this story which we know makes you proud and really happy. Please be assured that I will read the ebook when it comes out. Hope Tom continues improving as an actor with equal or better projects as The Impossible. Best regards, Ricardo

Bradon Dom,This section of Take 119 sums it all up for me:- In my wrniitg this story, there is little place for my opinion about my son and his career to date. As proud as I am of Tom, I am mindful of being self-absorbed and boastful. No one wants to read a story by dad banging on about how clever his son is. I certainly don’t, not least because I have three other sons who are all equally special and important to me.I have read every Take since the beginning and all the time I have felt your groundedness in the whole beautiful story unfolding. It was never about Dom v Tom it has always been about the love a father has for his family.In 2008 I witnessed Tom’s 2nd show as Billy in London and so wished I had the opportunity to say Thankyou to him for a great experience. The same applies now only I do have the opportunity to say thankyo Dom for the great experience that has been Eclipsed.God Bless and best wishes to you and your awesome family
