BAFTAs Fashion 2009

9 Feb

And awards season rolls on…yesterday night was the BAFTAs which meant I could actually watch live! I loved Freida Pinto’s dress, she’s doing an outstanding job as a newcomer she hasn’t set a foot wrong so far. There were some outstanding dress though, see below. Following the Globes and SAG awards, necklaces seem to be firmly ‘out’, with most opting to keep it simple on the accessories front.

Kate Winslett in Zac Posen

Good to see Kate looking good, trust me this picture was taken at an unflattering angle! It’s similar to her SAG dress, but better. I’m kinda bored of seeing Kate in the same body-con-ish dresses though, yeah she’s got a great curvy figure but maybe try something different for the Oscars.

Penelope Cruz in Alaia


I think this is the best dress she’s ever worn, she looks amazing. Again, this was taken at a bit of an unflattering angle. Not a big fan of her hair like that, it would have looked so much prettier..done any other way!

Emma Watson in Temperley


Is it bad that I’m jealous of a mere child?? The girl doesn’t have a stylist..

Marisa Tomei in Etro

A very brave choice from Marissa, not sure if I love it or hate it to be honest, but it definitely stood out.

Freida Pinto in Oscar de la Renta



Absolutely loved this dress! As soon as I saw her in it, very interested to see what she wears on Oscar night.

Alesha Dixon in Giovanni

Too much, too too much. Yuck!

Thandie Newton in vintage

Loved this dress, the gold stops it from being another boring black dress.

Angelina Jolie in Armani Prive


Brave choice from Angelina, not her usual choice – either floaty and body skimming or showing off her curves. I think she pulled it off, but I’m not sure that the length suits, but then again I’m not normally a fan of the mid-calf dress.

Marion Cotillard in Dior


Gorgeous, the ruffle/pleat detail and the shimmery material stopped this from being boring. Looks totally fabulous on Marion.

Gemma Arteton in vintage Dior


I don’t think I’ve ever seen Gemma get it right on the red carpet. It would be good for another occasion but its the BAFTAs! I think something a bit younger would have looked better on her. See Emma Watson for clues!
