Top 10 Beautiful BAFTA outfits

It’s the biggest event of the British film industry and this year’s BAFTA Awards were more glamorous than ever. There were some seriously stunning dresses on the red carpet, so it means the Oscars at the end of the month have a lot to live up to.

The awards fell on Valentine’s Day and actress after actress arrived at the star-studded ceremony at The Royal Opera House looking lovely and setting fans hearts racing. If you want to make an A’list arrival for a special night out, then you could learn a lot from these top 10 best dressed at the BAFTas.

Cate Blanchett

Cate presented the award for best costumes to Angel costumiers, praising how they dressed her for the film Elizabeth. But she dressed herself fabulously for the red carpet in this black maxi dress with sequin embellishment. It really caught the light from the photographer’s flashbulbs.

Alicia Vikander

Alicia looked sensational in a black maxi dress that appeared to be made of leather. She’s new to the awards season circuit this year so she has to look her best and she’s doing that!

Dakota Johnson

There were a lot of dark dresses on the red carpet so Dakota made a great choice with her red maxi dress. Dakota, who starred in 50 Shades of Grey, must have had enough of wearing safe colours and red definitely suits her.

Kate Winslet

Kate’s a pro at dressing for award ceremonies and she didn’t disappoint with this bodycon black maxi dress. It hugs her curves and shows off her hourglass figure, making her look gorgeous but understated. Nice work!

Laura Whitmore

Laura was hosting the red carpet show for MTV so she had to stand out and what better way to do that then with a green dress? That shade of green compliments her hair and skin tone so well! The key to wearing green is to pick the right shade.

Saoirse Ronan

Irish star Saoirse was noiminated for her role in Brooklyn and although she didn’t win, she’s a winner in the fashion stakes in her floral maxi dress. It’s cute and quirky – just like her personality.

Isla Fisher

Isla was there to support her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, but I reckon she upstaged him with her brilliant white maxi dress. She’s a star in her own right and I bet that dress would have caught directors’ attention.

Gwendoline Christie

Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline looked statuesque in a black maxi dress. Black is a really flattering colour and it appears to float gracefully over her figure – even though she is 6ft 1 without heels. She looks beautiful.

Olga Kurylenko

This is one seriously stunning dress – a combination of a white maxi dress with a nude maxi dress. The white colour makes you look and then you see it’s slightly sheer, which makes it daring. Sometimes being bold can be fun – this dress allows you to show off your fun side.

Gemma Chan

Actress Gemma dazzled in a gold maxi dress. Every awards ceremony has at least one gold dress and Gemma wore it best. I’d love to turn up in something like this to a party and feel like a celeb.
