Regardless of how stunning Lupita Nyongo looks, even she cannot possibly top our Red Carpet Favorite Ms. Jolie. I genuinely missed her this season at all the red carpets and was just so excited when I got to know that the couple would be making a grand debut at this year’s BAFTA. And they never disappoint, Period! Brad Pitt was dressed in Valentino while Angie looked super sexy wearing YSL. It was Mr. & Mrs. Smith all over again.
The second favorite at the Royal Opera House was obviously Ms. Nyongo; the only reason being Angie’s presence! Lupita looked like a stylist’s dream as usual, this time wearing an Emerald Green Christian Dior Haute Couture with a Gold Belt and matching Cuffs.
The third is a definite tie between Amy Adams and Cate Blanchett; both looking completely different and making it so much harder to decide. I like the way Amy’s taking the sleek and sharply sexy route this red carpet season; She embraces a Victoria Beckham Gown fit for a queen. While Cate is known for her experimental style, she opts for a simple and brilliantly elegant body hugging Alexander McQueen. She looks her age but gracefully so; for which I adore her. I must do a piece on Cate on the Red Carpet. Her varied choices are just so unpredictable and is so much fun to watch.
Leo Di Caprio looked as poised as ever in an Armani while Bradley Cooper made my knees go weak in a Navy McQueen suit (Oh, how I hate that smile!).
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson looked the picture perfect couple; Tom in a classic tux and Rita in a sequined Jenny Packham Gown.
Michelle Rodriguez looked her usual bold and sexy in a deep neck Emilio de la Morena Gown.
The picture perfect family, you ask? Definitely the Emma Thompson family (Greg Wise, Gaia Wise, Tindyebwa Agaba Wise) as they smiled at the flashlights. Emma looks gorgeous in a red Maria Grachvogel although we could’ve done without the fur coat.
And what’s BAFTA without the Royal Family gracing it! But no, Kate was not present (you can feel my soul crushed!), it was just our dear old Prince William with the chief executive of BAFTA, Amanda Berry.
And what’s any red carpet without some major fails! First on the list is Maggie Gyllenhaal wearing Lanvin. Apparently there are some royal ways to screw up even a Lanvin reminding us yet again, Its not what you wear; Its How you wear it!
Next up is Gillian Anderson wearing a Balmain monotone Balmain Haute Couture. Its definitely not one of the worst choices, so i’ll leave it at that.
Laura Carmichael was spotted in a chic calf length Green Erdem Dress but unfortunately not good enough to be seen at the Royal Opera House.
