BAFTA Awards 2012 Red Carpet – Part ONE

Posted on February 13, 2012

Darlings, it was that BAFTAs! That wacky British awards ceremony where they all use the “loo” and spell “realize” with an s! Let’s rip their dresses anyway!

 

Alycia Lane

 A pretty great dress poorly served by bland shoes and a necklace that doesn’t go with it.

 

Berenice Marlohe

 Simple, but it works.

 

Brad Pitt in Gucci

Why, Mr. Brad. You look downright suave tonight.

 

Christina Hendricks in Vivienne Westwood

 Clearly, the babyheads poking out of her dress have driven her mad.

 

Christina Ricci in Givenchy Couture

 Disco fabulous. Let’s all do a rail in the ladies room as a salute to this dress.

 

Colin Firth in Giorgio Armani and Livia Giuggioli in Sir Paul Smith

His and Hers tuxes can be too cutesy for words most of the time, but this works. It helps that they’re both so naturally chic. However, we don’t love her shoes and we shudder to think what she might be carrying in that clutch.

 

Edith Bowman

 Too precious.

 

Elizabeth McGovern

This is an improvement over recent red carpet appearances. Also a slight improvement on resisting the tuck-in-the-chin-and-smile-with-the-mouth-closed pose, which only serves to make her look batshit insane.

 

Gillian Anderson

 She looks like, if we lifted her up, there’d be some appliance or household item cleverly hidden underneath her.

 

Holliday Grainger

She has the exact skin tone to make this dress look ethereal and romantic. On anyone else, the effect would be greatly reduced, if not totally lost.

 

Jessica Chastain in Oscar de la Renta

It’s pretty goddess-y and we don’t love the shoes, but she looks great.

 

Joanne Froggatt

 Surprisingly simple, since she likes to shed her housemaid image when she goes out and tends toward sexy, slightly showy looks. Hair and makeup look great; questionable shoes.

 

Jon Hamm

Perfect. He looks like a cologne ad.

 

Naomie Harris in Emilio Pucci

 Gorgeous.

 

Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive

 It’s the boob-in-a-box dress.

 

Tilda Swinton in Celine

Fucking love this bitch.

 

Viola Davis in Valentino

 Girl, that’s not your color. It’s okay on you, but not our favorite. Also, the makeup looks harsh.

    OMG–Tilda looks like she has a little Meryl Streep head growing in her shoulder? Wouldn’t that be fabulous and just so very Tilda if it were true?

       I would totally pay big money to see a movie in which a little Meryl Streep head grows out of Tilda Swinton’s shoulder and gives her unsolicited acting advice.

      And did they drop the hem at the last minute and forget to iron it? What’s that fold across her shins?

      • Anonymous

        Looking at it again, it looks like it might be a satin inset and the fold might be a seam. Not sure, though, I’d have to see another pix.

      • Call me Bee

        It does look like a seam–between two fabrics of the same color but deffernt textures.  The bottom piece looks shinier.  Which makes this outfit even better!

      Now I’m going to brand myself as a SciFi geek, but that picture brought back misty memories of Heinlein’s “Orphans of the Sky” and Robert Miller’s “A Canticle for Leibowitz”.  Someone should write another classic SciFi novel with Tilda as the main character.

      • Susan Crawford

        OMG! As another SciFi geek (and proud of it) your comment totally made my day. Yes,Tilda’s aesthetic definitely lends itself to some marvelous future where Planet Swinton, filled with glorious Tilda-creatures (sporting amazing hair and gowns made of strands of solar flare matter) glides into earth’s orbit and mystically transports all those in need of style makeovers to an ice cave . . . Aaaanyway, Tilda FTW, with Ms. Ricci a close second.

    • Lori

      I’m starting to think someone seriously needs to have an intervention with Christina. Her body is not that difficult to dress. It’s not easy, but it’s not half as hard as she makes it seem, which means that the problem is with her not with her girls. There is just no good reason for her to leave the house looking like such BSC crap.

      Why is it that, when left to her own devices, she always looks so bad?? She’s gorgeous, but either she or whoever dresses her has no clue how to dress her figure. Christina, fire your stylist. NOW.

    I’d say that Mrs. Firth was carrying a good old fashioned vibrator in that clutch, but I seriously doubt if she needs one.

      Seriously, this was a MAJOR “basket of tits” or “boob basket” (I can’t remember the name now) moment. 

      Maybe the girls are up there because the styling team is under that tent/dress. They wanted to feel what an award show was all about.

    Hmm. What does it say about me that, given the choice between this post and the Grammys one, I opened this first? Great comments (poor tea cosy) but I also love the ensemble of all these looks–just a general trend towards classy simplicity. Though I guess Naomi Harris has the most complicated dress and she looks amazing. But for once I would have liked to be there to admire these in person.

  • Anonymous

    Naomie Harris looks like she’s playing toilet paper bride. Hate, hate the bodice on that thing.

    Re: Mrs. Firth, I adore that clutch. So green & sparkly! The buckles on the shoes are a bit heavy given the sleekness of the suit, but I think they’re okay. I didn’t realize Mr. Firth was allowed to wear anyone other than Tom Ford in public anymore. This tux actually looks better on him than some of the Ford ones he’s worn, but is it me, or is his hem a little high? Maybe it’s just the lighting in the picture.

      Cruz looked stunning – that color was gorgeous on her – but the bodice of the dress was just weird.  Or it didn’t fit.  Or something.
      I would like to be invited to that wedding though.

  • http://twitter.com/arodenha Alli

    Is Joanne Frogatt the only Downton cast member allowed to have a stylist? Because she is the only one I see consistently knocking it out of the park. No idea who Berenice Marlohe is but she looks so chic – I love it! And it makes me sad that Christina Hendricks just cannot seem to dress well outside of tv/movies; I saw Drive last weekend and even though she was playing a moll she still looked better than any time I’ve seen her IRL.

    Oh Christina Hendricks we all know you have great boobs now cover them for a change, also that growth on her hip makes her look even wider than usual.

    What’s going on with the bottom of the Swinton’s dress.  There’s a big crease in it!  Or am I totally missing something?

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

       The bottom several inches are a different fabric. To my eyes the dress looks like its mostly crepe, and the hem is satin.

  • Anonymous

    Tilda for the win!  LOVE that dress.

    Everytime I see Colin Firth in a tuxedo I become instantly libidinous and shed at least 30 years.  Does anyone wear a tux better than he does?  Livia looks great but I agree on the shoes and the clutch. 

    Jon Hamm — yummy.  Brad Pitt finally and totally won me over with “Moneyball” so suddenly I’m that blinded fan-broad.  I.e., he looks great whether or not I really think so.

    Viola Davis needs the TLo private consultation to bring out her eternal inner diva.

      I do  enjoy that she chose an unusual color and texture, and that she accessorized with silver instead of gold, but … The design of the gown sure isn’t helped by how sharp and angular she is now.

    Gillian Anderson looks like something our of mu mother-in-law’s bell collection, that dress is so stiff.

    I love both disco-shiny dresses.  Chastain would have had the win but she killed it with that busy necklace.  You don’t need jewels around your neck competing with the shiny dress.  Ricci accessorized better with the earrings.  Swinton’s gnarly toes touching the red carpet – ewww.  Love her dress but the feet are ruining it.  Holliday Grainger (who?) is perfection.  She does look like a Sargent painting, as someone noted earlier.  I think Elizabeth McGovern looks pretty darn great and is much improved.  Joanne Froggatt also looks very chic.  Love the color of Naomie’s dress but the bodice is giving me a headache.  Love Viola’s dress, especially the color, but her overall look isn’t quite working.  Maybe it’s the hair.

    This is the best I’ve ever seen Jon Hamm look when he isn’t playing Don Draper.  And Brad does look suave.

    Christina Hendricks is tragic.  Actually, she’s gone past tragic and is just annoying now.  It really shouldn’t be that hard to look halfway decent on the RC.  But she gets it spectacularly wrong almost every time.  I’m starting to think it’s by choice.  As long as the babyheads (snort! love that) are on display, that’s all she cares about.

    Why are most of the photos out of focus?

    Every time I see Christina Hendricks wearing her boobs like a feeding tough around her neck I think “what an idiot”. Sorry to be so mean, but seriously, she clearly can’t handle what’s she’s got. She needs to get rid of them.

    re: Livia Giuggioli – oh, that’s a clutch.  i thought she was about to smash a bedazzled bottle of wine over poor Colin’s head.

    Tilda looks like David Bowie
    VIola looks horrible – especially after having seen her without the wig in the LA Times shoot – the contrast with that look and this look is overwhelming.
    Everything else is just blah. But compared to the freak show at the Grammy’s yesterday, blah is good

    Love your take on the Christina Hendricks issue.

    Pretty sure the first pic is of British tv host Asha Leo, not Alycia Lane. Regardless, stunning. 

    Meryl for the win.

    More great quotes…
    “Disco fabulous. Let’s all do a rail in the ladies room as a salute to this dress.”
    LOVE!

    I just realized that I am totally spoiled/ruined by American red carpets/fashion shows, because I’m mentally bitching about how DARK everything is behind these people – put some of these in 3000 candlepower lighting, and everything changes – and did Christina and Meryl have the same dress except that Meryl wore a cardigan thing?

     The Swintonator rides again.  All-effing-hail!  By the way, what the hell is going on with Gillian Anderson?  She’s starting to resemble a character from the X Files….girl needs a sandwich.

    I haven’t gone through all the comments, so maybe someone already asked about this: What is going on with those shoes Jon Hamm is wearing? They kind of look like loafers with little silver tassels and silver studs on the side.

    I know I need a new prescription for my glasses, but I’ve looked at those shoes now a couple of times, and they still look odd (though not unattractive) to me.

    I guess Michael Fassbender has replaced Jon Hamm as the guy who looks like he just rolled out of bed. . .

    Ah, I knew she looked better on the BAFTA stage.

    So – a particularly windy red carpet combined with rubbish hairspray? a romp in the limo? (I don’t believe that’s as likely as it often looks like LOL!), she forgot to do her hair before she left? or was there a hedge between the limo and the edge of the carpet that she was dragged through backwards?

    Not loving the coat length on Pitt, but I’d still lick him all over.

    I just figured out what Gillian Anderson reminds me of.  The skirt certainly looks stiff enough.

    Penelope.  She needs to shoot her gays.

    Berenice Marlohe (the pose looks a bit awkward), 
    Christina Ricci, Colin Firth, Livia Giuggioli, Jessica Chastain, Joanne Froggatt, Jon Hamm, and Naomie Harris, nicely done.
