2013 BAFTA Awards Red Carpet

Screw the Grammys – the most delicious looks of this weekend’s red carpet came from London’s BAFTA Awards.

Jaw-droppingly awesome. Weird in the best possible way, supremely of-the-moment and modern, and all-around impossible to look away from.

Katniss has absolutely never looked more lovely than she does in this surprisingly sweet and feminine Dior gown. The color and embellishments are perfect, the jewelry is chic – I’m getting more and more excited for the Oscars red carpet every minute, dear readers.

Apparently, Eddie got so sick at the BAFTAs that he couldn’t present an award with Sally Field like he was supposed to! Poor, adorable Eddie – we so appreciate your efforts to look this fan-fucking-tastic even when you’re vomiting into Sally Field’s purse backstage.

Gorgeous bodice, and an all-around stunning look, but I’m over the short hair/cheesy smile combo – it’s aggressively suburban mom, and it’s creeping me out.

There’s something weird going on with the stiffness of the fabric and the structure of the bodice, but I’m still coming down on the side of loving this look. She’s stunned in similar shades of blue before, but the hair, makeup, and jewelry are more beautiful than ever.

The gown is a foot too long on her, even with those absolutely stupidly high heels. And her torso is too short for the way the lace is positioned – the proportions are really strange on her.

Are his suit and bow tie slightly too large, or is his head just too tiny for his body?

It’s just too much dress for her. The offensively large peplum, the feathers on the shoulders, the giant purse, and even the heaviness of the fabric overwhelm her completely.

You WORK that ridiculously bangin’ bod, Sally! Gidget has still got it going on, dear readers.

The shape is a little strange and it feels slightly dated, but a remotely unique silhouette from Jennifer Garner is surprising enough.

Everyone and their mother has worked a formal jumpsuit on the red carpet at this point. If you’re going to do it, it should be a little more interesting than this. I think it’s the waistband/keyhole combination that’s throwing me off, but I just find this really underwhelming.

I don’t know why Helen Mirren has pink hair, and while I don’t begrudge her a 1990s Gwen Stefani moment, I cannot comprehend that sleeve. She looks like a prairie bride from the waist down and a Capitol citizen in The Hunger Games from the waist up.

  1. A+ for this post containing multiple THG references. Especially the Helen Mirren one because OMG SO TRUE. But also, the fact that she has pink hair makes me love her that much more/
