Red Carpet Watch: The BAFTAs

I’m covering again for Sophia due to no access to the internet, but rest assured she’ll be back on this soon!

The BAFTAs took place last night at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, and style-wise everyone looked amazing – especially the guys! I loved the fact that the presenters asked most of them what designer suit they were wearing: men should be included more in these things!

So, here’s what wore who – er, I mean, here’s who wore what (trying saying that 3 times fast!):

Simon Pegg

I don’t know what designer he was wearing but he looks great here, spectacles and all. I think glasses should be worn and celebrated on the red carpet more often; there are so many colours and styles to choose from. Loving the velvet ( I think it’s velvet) bow tie too.

David Morrissey in Dunhill

David Morrissey was definitely a lovely surprise. The sort of square shape of the jacket suits him really well as he is such a tall dude, and again, the glasses just finish the whole look perfectly. I love those sort of vintage looking glasses on men.

Anne Hathaway in Burberry

EE British Academy Film Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Stunning. One of my favourite dresses of the evening. The style is very classic, but the studded bodice adds a sort of edgy and modern touch. Her hairstyle looks cute too.

Hugh Jackman in Lanvin

Again, designer unknown. The beard is a little off-putting (as I’m sure Helen would agree) but the evening coat looks amazing. There are a lot of sharp, clear masculine lines involved in this look which I like.

Jessica Chastain in Roland Mouret

Just like her dress at the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards, she has kept it very simple and elegant but in a bold colour that compliments her skin tone. The gal just gets it right every time!

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture

Another favourite of mine. The style is simple but the bead embellishments add the right amount of red carpet sparkle. And her hairstyle and earrings don’t take the attention away from it. Nicely done.

Luke Evans in Hackett

Love. This. Jacket. It’s such a gorgeous colour and texture, it has a really luxurious look to it. Wearing trousers in the same colour would have looked great, but toning it down with standard black ones works just as well.

Samuel L. Jackson in Hackett

And another great Hackett suit, with the jacket in a lovely subtle colour. Those trousers could have done with a quick go under the iron, though!

Rafe Spall in Burberry and Elize duToit in Bruce Oldfield

A classic tux and he wears it well. I love the stripes down the legs of the trousers, a look that I noticed was quite popular last night. And her dress is a gorgeous colour.

Tom Hiddleston in Giorgio Armani

This was another favourite. The suit is very sleek, formal and elegant, just like its wearer! I also like how the material of the tie matches the material of the lapels, it’s a very nice touch.

Martin Freeman (far right) in Richard James

BAFTA Film Awards 2013 - Press Room - London

I tried to find a picture of him on his own in this suit but to no avail, so this was the best I could do. Sarah described this suit as “just on the right side of Psy”, and I’m inclined to agree. Martin Freeman has never been afraid to wear vibrant colours when it comes to suits, and once again he’s made a great choice. I also love love love the unusual brooch and the dinky stickpin (had to look that one up) on his tie. He looks fantastically dapper and this was my absolute favourite suit of the night.

Damian Lewis in Burberry

EE British Academy Film Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

I actually can’t praise enough the whole coloured suit thing. It’s a great way to rework a tuxedo and makes the look interesting. The colour’s fab, the material’s beautiful and it really suits him.

Ben Affleck in Gucci

It looks like this suit is fitted, which is great because it gives him a lovely masculine silhouette. Also loving the contrasting lapels. Like I said, it’s the little touches!

Christoph Waltz

BAFTA Film Awards 2013 - Press Room - London

Love the suit, love the glasses, love the (truly deserved) BAFTA. He looks fantastic. I adore him.

Hayley Atwell in Antonio Berardi

A statuesque, curve-hugging dress in a very interesting design, and its simple style stops it from looking fussy. And with her playful hairstyle and beautiful smile, she looks fabulous.

Amy Adams in Elie Saab

So beautiful. I really love the thigh split and the detailing at the top, her hairstyle really suits her and the pink earrings add a subtle blush of colour. Her dress was one of my favourites.

Jeremy Irvine in Burberry

100 man points to Mr Irvine for evening suit style. He was a bit of an underdog in terms of style on the red carpet.

Nicholas Hoult in Tom Ford

He’s on his grown and sexy steez and looking good doing it too in that fitted tux. I reckon we should be looking out for him at red carpet events from now on – something tells me that he knows a thing or two about evening style.
