BAFTA Fashion

While most people in the US had their eyes on Grammy fashion last night, my focus was across the pond at the BAFTA Awards.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) was founded in April of 1947 at the Hyde Park Hotel. The Academy was designed to represent Britain’s creative influences in film, which at the time of its inceptions, was only beginning to flourish. Last night’s show is the British version of the Oscars, and the winners were pretty expected for the most part. Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore took the night’s top honors along with the film Birdman.

While the 2015 BAFTA winners were pretty predictable, fashion at the BAFTAs can be hit or miss. Given that the weather was freezing last night, I am amazed the women were able to bear the red carpet without coats. Maybe it’s just the Texan in me, but no thank you.

The Men

While the men typically stick to more traditional black tie attire, there was definitely a splash of blue sported by the likes of Eddie Redmayne and David Beckham. I’m not the biggest fan of the blue velvet look, but those two can pull off pretty much anything. I personally prefer the traditional black suit sported by birthday boy Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. I was also really impressed with Michael Keeton who is aging well.

The Women

The ladies were also in top form last night. While black gowns are always prevalent at the BAFTAs, especially due to the time of year the Awards are held, there were was an amazing pop of color worn by Reese Witherspoon, Nimrat Kaur, and Julianne Moore. These ladies have really looked amazing during the 2015 awards season. British women tend to have a flare for quirky fashion styles that only they can pull off. Felicity Jones and Keira Knightley are notorious for embracing reallying unique styles, and last night was no different. I haven’t been a fan of some of Felicity’s recent looks, but I loved her gown last night.

The Couples

Here is a look at my favorite couples of the night. I haven’t seen Dougray Scott in forever, and he and Claire Forlani looked amazing.

    Very nice compilation! I also prefer the traditional black suit rather than the blue or the velvet. There’s always a chance to add some color with a pocket square. From the girls, I really liked Julianne Moore’s dress and Amy Adams. Amy is one of my favorite at awards ceremonies, she never misses an outfit. I think Keira’s was fun as well.

      Something tells me you could pull these looks off;). I totally agree with you that the classic look is always the best.

      I love Amy Adams and thought she looked amazing. Pretty sure I wouldn’t mind looking as good as Julianne Moore at her age.

      Thank you! I must admit, I am still learning how to enhance the aesthetic look of my blog. When you click “add media”, select the create an album function. When you add the pictures, there is an option for how you would like the pictures viewed. In the dropdown menu, you should be able to select “slideshow” and select the size you want. Hope this helps! If not, just message me.
