Despite the serious downpour, the A-list didn’t let it stop them from shining on the red carpet at the Baftas 2011. Colour was a massive theme of the evening, with lust-worthy catwalk looks from all ends of the colour spectrum. Our fave looks included the ridiculously gorgeous Jessica Alba (seriously, we need to know the secret to her glowing skin), who was breathtaking in a cobalt blue Atelier Versace tulle strapless gown, accessorised with Versace gold platforms and a gold Versace box clutch. The vintage necklace, red lips and messy braided updo all added to her red-carpet winning formula.
Brit actress Thandie Newton was a serious runner-up for best dressed, wearing a hot pink Monique Lhuiller rose-printed number with a hand bustled skirt, she kept her hair sleek and colour-popped with green jewels. The rain splashes even look like they are a part of the dress, now that is impressive! Fellow British actress Rosamund Pike, who usually plays it safe, looked uh-mazing in an ochre yellow halterneck Alexander McQueen dress with matching gold McQueen knuckleduster clutch – we see a running theme occurring with the gold accessories, ladies take note!
Finally, the über-cool Emma Stone opted for a two-tone red belted Lanvin dress hot off the catwalk, again opting for gold accessories paired with nude Lanvin heels. It would appear that along with Thandie, Emma didn’t manage to escape the rain and the dress has taken on a dip-dye hem appearance. Yup, that’s right Em, you’re not in sunny LA anymore – but we love how these ladies brightened up the dreary great British weather, hurrah! RS
