Bafta Fashion – The Best Looks

The most glamorous night in the TV calendar is undoubtedly the BAFTA awards. The beautiful stars of the small screen all put on their finery as they battle to win the awards that really matter (sorry TV Quick and Soap Awards but you know I’m telling the truth). This year was no exception. Celebrities like Kelly Brook, Alex Jones, Holly Willoughby and the gorgeous Millie Mackintosh all walked the supremely patriotic red, white and blue carpet. But who’s style seriously impressed? Who wore the dresses that made me go – ooooooh!

Here are my choices for best dressed on the night, with a few ideas on how you can get that red carpet look for yourself.

Lydia Bright looked amazing. The stylish girl from Towie went for a beautiful, but understated look wearing a dress she will be stocking in her own boutique later this year. The soft grey looked great on the blonde, whilst the hair was a definite nod to The Great Gatsby, showing that Lydia is fashion forward. Come Christmas, when the Carey Mulligan film is released, we will all by rocking her soft waves.

 

Amy Childs was almost unrecognisable in her Victoria Beckham turquoise column dress. Everything about this look was grown up, her hair in an Audrey Hepburn style chignon, the minimal accessories, even the perma tan was toned down. Amy looked both elegant and classic – I hope she sticks to Victoria Beckham dresses in future – a new style star my well have been born!

Cheska Hull was another reality star who looked simply divine. The Made in Chelsea star wore a glamorous white dress that had a 1930s feel. Bias cut with a draped Grecian style neckline, Cheska could almost have borrowed the dress from Jean Harlow. I also liked the very dramatic eye make-up. The one thing I would change would be the clutch bag – a smaller jewelled box bag would’ve been a better choice.

Alex Jones from The One Show always looks good whilst sitting on a sofa, but she looked dazzling on the red carpet. She chose the brightest shade of sunshine yellow imaginable for her dress, an off the shoulder number that draped her curves beautifully. I loved that on one of the sunniest days of the year, Alex bought a little bit of sunshine to the night as well.

 Millie Mackintosh looked like a Grecian Goddess in a white draped style dress from Lanvin. This reminded me of the 1970s styles worn by Bianca Jagger and other luminaries of Studio 54. I loved this look, although I think the beautiful evening also effected the way I viewed the look (on a wet red carpet I don’t think it would’ve had the same effect). She accessorised with a Saint Tropez tan and Professor Green.

Celebrity style picks – featuring Rihanna, Kate Middleton and Alex Jones

Somebody told me this week that Fashion-Mommy is probably best known for the celebrity get the look posts, so as I am spending a rare Saturday night in, and I know that this won’t happen for at least another month,  I would enjoy passing on a few more celebrity style spots for those who are intent on getting a little bit of celebrity sparkle.

First up is Alex Jones. I really like Alex Jones on the one show. She always looks glamorous and has a great down to Earth charm that makes you forget that Christine Bleakley ever presented the show. This month she has been wearing some very eye-catching blouses that have come courtesy of Dahlia.The Natalie is available now for £45, whilst the Angela will be available next month.

Dobby Glitter Collar Blouse Style name: Natalie Price: £45.00 

Next up we have some more of that Kate effect. Selfridges have this week relaunched the classic Issa dress as worn for Kate on the day her engagement was announced, but this time the dress is in a gorgeous turquoise colour that is just perfect for Spring.

ISSA Silk-jersey dress £495.00 

BHS currently has an online promotion offering 20% off their bridal collection. This includes the Rose lace long-sleeved bridal dress that has been inspired by Kate’s Sarah Burton gown.

You can still get a Pippa inspired bridesmaids dress too, with the Charlotte Ivory cowl neck dress still available in most sizes.

Rihanna has been strutting around LA showing off the best of the British High Street, wearing a Very Short pair of distressed denim hotpants from non other than Miss Selfridge. These are probably best not attempted unless you have Rihanna’s endless legs.

Distressed Effect High Waist Shorts Price: £30.00

My favourite TOWIE star, Lydia Bright, is well-known as a fan of Miss Selfridge and has also recently been spotted  wearing one of their wonderful blouses, the cream lace blouse.

Cream Pretty Lace Insert Shirt Price: £37.00 

Lana Del Rey is definitely one of my style crushes at the moment, with her polished Hollywood vintage glamour style. Yet she is not averse to doing a bit of High Street shopping. She was recently snapped wearing a lovely pair of vintage style Mary Janes in a great nude shade from Office. These are a snip at £65.
