Bloody Brilliant BAFTAs

Published February 17, 2014 by The Feminist

The Royal Opera House was filled with Hollywood’s crème de la crème last night and –blimey!- the biggest names in cinema pulled out all the stops fashion wise.

I guess we can all agree that although 12 Years A Slave went home with Best Picture and Best Actor, Brangelina was the real winner of the night. The couple was the epitome of style and elegance in their coordinated tuxedos. Even though a tuxedo is traditionally designed to be a man’s outfit, Angelina outshines her hubby Brad on all levels. The undone bow tie, the sexy smoky eyes and those killer legs: Angelina shows us all how to rock a suit. She looks so damn great  that it even makes Brad’s very nice and dapper Valentino tux look rather meh.

Another winner of the night was Lupita Nyong’o. She may not have won the award for Best supporting Actress, but she definitely outshone Jennifer Lawrence in the fashion department. (Because Miss Lawrence was absent.) I simply love her Christian Dior emerald dress!

Everyone kept raving about Cate Blanchett’s Alexander McQueen dress, but I honestly don’t know what the fuzz was all about. I mean, it looks a bit boring and too-tight-around-the-boob-area, if you ask me.

Dame Helen Mirren must have had a severe fashion meltdown right before the gala, because this mismatch of trends all rolled into one dress just screams “I have absolutely nothing to wear” –hysteria. (But give her some credit, ladies. We’ve all been through something similar at least once.)

The same kind of meltdown apparently happened to Maggie Gyllenhaal. I never thought I would say it, but in this case less is indeed more.

Michelle Rodriguez looked absolutely stunning in this bold dress with leather details.

Not to mention Noamie Harris! (Talking about hot pink!)

Lily Allen wore one of my favourite dresses of the evening. I simply adore the bold summery colours and the bow on the back gives the ballroom gown a quirky twist.

French actress Lea Seydoux is a vision in this navy blue Miu Miu dress. The pearl details on the bustier and the sheer skirt revealing her long legs make everything look very bombshell elegant.

Amy Adams did it again! Just when you thought she couldn’t possibly be more stylish, she went all out with this very intriguing black dress. It’s an evening gown with a collar. A collar!
