10 Killer Looks That Stole Our Hearts At The BAFTAs

The 2013 BAFTA awards show was a washout. In the best possible sense, of course.
Yes, it rained cats and a dogs, but that didn’t deter Hollywood’s biggest stars, or indeed the U.K.’s finest acting constabulary, from walking the (rather soggy) red carpet.

We felt our hearts flutter over everything from floor-sweeping lace gowns to tailored jump suits and colour-blocked creations; real glamour was on display across the board. So, we've done the tough work and shortlisted our favourite looks of the night for you. But just remember: Everyone’s a winner, here.

Laura Whitemore
In a sea of black, our girl Laura still managed to stand out from the crowd. The MTV presenter rocked this Alexandre Vaulthier Couture jumpsuit with Grecian inspired accessories, a slick of red lips, and a “you looking at me?” attitude. We like. A lot.

Hayley Atwell
Rising Brit star Hayley Atwell appeared in her element in this monochrome, structured gown. We particularly liked the fresh make up and unfussy hairdo to go with it. It made what could have been quite a formal look feel less so.

Marion Cottilard
We felt for Marion, we really did. She showed her true feelings as she walked down the very wet red carpet, grimacing as particularly violent gusts of wind blew slushy streams of rain her way. Still she was a vision in her sunshine yellow Dior gown. The sheer paneling gave the elegant column dress a hint of drama that complemented the inclement weather perfectly. Although, it's possible Marion might disagree.

Amy Adams
Amy went old school with a black lace Elie Saab gown that wouldn’t have been out of place in Ava Gardner’s wardrobe. Oh and a pair of very, very delicate Faberge earrings that played off the titian tones of her hair. Which, by the way, was lovely. Just lovely. And the dangerously high slit to her dress brought it all right back to the 21st century. We can’t wait to see what she wears at the Oscars.

Helen Mirren
You already know how much we love her candyfloss hair but Helen Mirren's Nicholas Oakwell couture dress was pretty wonderful, too. The pale-gray tones of the chiffon gown were the perfect foil to the sweetie-shop pink — and it was a real pleasure to see a woman on the red carpet having fun with her look. No left-arm-at-right angle poses for this Dame, just a playful twirl for the cameras. Pure class.

Jessica Chastain
We think that Jessica Chastain might be our new red-carpet crush. She never puts a foot wrong. The cobalt blue and origami-like pleats of this Roland Mouret dress enhance her alabaster-like skin and auburn hair to perfection. Breathtakingly lovely.

Lily James
This Downton Abbey star (she plays temptress Lady Rose MacClare, in case you aren't among the obsessed) enhanced her English Rose status with a flowing, black-lace gown. The high neck and puff sleeves kept it demure while the champagne-coloured satin underneath made it anything but. One to watch.

Sarah Jessica Parker
Everybody knows that SJP wears the trousers when it comes to red-carpet dressing. And this is exactly what she did on Sunday, wearing an Elie Saab skin-fit jumpsuit that played to all her best assets. Its razor-sharp tailoring and unique texture combinations (velvet and silk — we like) were the epitome of understated elegance. What a pro.

Anne Hathaway
Congratulations to Annie Hathaway, winner of the Best Supporting Actress award and wearer one of our favourite looks of the night. Rumours proved unfounded that the Les Mis actress would wear Lanvin, as she confidently walked the red carpet in Burberry. Plus, her elfin crop is really growing on us, and although studs have been a embellishment of choice for seasons now we liked how these add-ons gave the plain black column an edge.

Jennifer Lawrence
Sometimes it’s tough to be an award-winning actress. Pneumonia? Pah, it’s awards season, slip on your Dior gown and hit that red carpet, anyway! Which is exactly what Jennifer Lawrence did in an exquisite chiffon gown, this weekend. It’s only two weeks since she battled her illness and while she did wear a coat for most of the red carpet, she did manage to raise a smile. What a trooper.
