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.
