The Bafta's - And the nominees for the Best Style goes to...

Sunday the 13th of February, the day before Valentine’s Day. A day that would usually involve me beginning my spiral downwards into a Bridget Jones' style sob fest, including Ben and Jerry’s', and sad songs.
However, this 13th of February was a different matter entirely. Instead of turning the TV on to watch back to back Die Hard films, to take my mind off my singledom, I turned the TV on to watch my favourite movie event of the year...the Baftas!
Now, for me, the Bafta's is one of the most glamorous and exiting movie events of the year, not only due to the famous stars and the awards, but also due to the fabulous ensembles produced by numerous starlets.
As always there was fashion fabulousness and fashion flops. There are so many stars who must be duly noted for their impeccable style, to name a few; newcomer to the Hollywood scene Hailee Steinfeld. Steinfeld wore a classic Mui Mui dress, yet played down the maturity of the outfit by layering a stunning jewelled embellished top over the dress, making the look quirky, fun and original.
Emma Stone showcased her newly platinum blonde hair, with a stunning dress to complement. Stone opted for an elegant red, one shouldered empire line dress by Lanvin. Showing a more grown up, elegant side to the “Easy A” actress.
Although making a complete mess of announcing the nominees whilst presenting an award, Rosamund Pike did not make any mistakes when choosing what to wear on the night. Pike chose a floor length, golden yellow, floral print dress, a la Alexander McQueen. Pike's choice was elegant yet had an air of bohemia about it, which complemented her beachy waves perfectly.
Jessica Alba impressed on the night too. Alba decided on a royal blue, empire line, floor length Versace dress. A brave choice due to the bold, block colour of the dress, yet Alba carried it off with elegance, thanks to simple accessories, hair and make-up, letting the drama of the dress complete the look.
All in all a good night for fashion and film, especially for the cast and crew of "The Kings Speech" which picked up an amazing seven Baftas, and an especially good night for Colin Firth who won Best Actor for "The Kings Speech" and Natalie Portman who won best actress for "Black Swan".  I’m already looking forward to seeing what cinematic and satorical delights the Baftas' provides us with next year.
