The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is the British equivalent of the Oscars. I’ve had a love affair with Britain (London in particular) since I traveled there a few years ago (and before then). I would loooove to make another trip soon…or, as the British might say, I’d love to have a go at it again. Funny story, while I was at the yoga studio the other day, one of the students was telling a story about his time working in London and realizing much later that his friend Don was actually Dan, but when pronounced with a British accent it sounded like Don. And throughout his time there, he had to be conscious of introducing him as Don to his English friends and Dan to his American friends. Anyway, I guess you had to be there. Back to the BAFTA Awards, here are my favorite looks from the red carpet. Cheers!

Julianne Moore in Tom FordI love that Julianne chose something so daring in so many ways, yet still managed to look classy and elegant. From the bold choice of color to the two-toned shade drawing your eyes to the top which brings you directly to the incredibly low slit on the front, it is at once sexy, yet demure.

Amy Adams in Lanvin – I think Amy did a great job with accessorizing this pretty basic cut. She went for the trend-of-the-moment tassels and managed to still make it look glamorous.

Léa Seydoux, in Prada and Monica Bellucci, in Alaïa – I have to admit, Lea’s dress is bordering a bit on the bridesmaid-wear side, but the slits on the side and the overflow of fabric immediately redeem itself back to red-carpet worthiness. Let’s talk about Monica! Oh.My.God! I have had a girl crush on this women For-everr. Seriously. She is the epitome of beauty. I love her choice of Alaïa here.It is fun, flirty and stylish.

Laura Bailey in Emilia Wickstead

Laura Bailey in Emilia Wickstead – This dress is amazingly rich in subtle details, from the quilted fabric to the pockets. Pockets on everything? Yes, please!

Stacy Martin in Louis Vuitton – The cape on this dress is everything. I love the details, including the dark black contrasting piping on the collar.

Romola Garai in Roksanda Illncic – How adorable does Romola look in this attire (Is it okay to call a grown woman adorable? I think so.)? This is one of the most unexpected color combinations I have seen on the red carpets this year, but it works so well. It’s quite refreshing. Again, there is the contrasting piping, but on the sleeves this time. Love her shoes!

Kristin Scott Thomas in William Vintage

Kristin Scott Thomas in William Vintage – Kristin looks so confident and happy. This dress looks wonderful on her. It is understated, but very classy and still red-carpet worthy.
