Red carpet round-up: BAFTA Film Awards 2016

Ahem, these ladies certainly left us with an insatiable urge to don gowns, now!

February 15, 2016

With Hollywood’s finest descending on London’s Royal Opera House for the EE BAFTA Film Awards 2016, all eyes were on Kate Winslet and Dakota Johnson who clearly made a notable impact. Garbed suavely in floor-grazing gowns, forget the awards, these divas scored big on the fashion gauge. Ahem, these ladies certainly left us with an insatiable urge to don gowns, now!

Kate Winslet

The Titanic sweetheart left spectators breathless in an asymmetric black gown by Antonio Berardi. Fit with one sleeve almost off the shoulder and the other strapless, the tailoring of the dress was urbane, yet fun. Keeping her makeup self-effacing, but still seductive, the Insurgent actor glammed up with jet eye-liner and a bold lip. Not that she needed any, but Kate rocked her accessories game. Diamond pendant earrings, scintillating bracelets and a red clutch that comprised rose details added just the right amount of bling to the all-black ensemble.

Dakota Johnson

Let’s get one thing straight — Dakota couldn’t get any more smokin’ than this. Decked effortlessly in a low cut V-neck bright-scarlet dress by Dior, we wanted her to be our Valentine. Sewn with just the right volume of ruching and ruffle at the floor-sweeping hem-line and down and around the waist, this slinky gown was incalculably elegant. Also, just to put it out there — strappy, barely-there straps are so making a comeback this year! The Fifty Shades of Grey star harmonised her look with red lipstick and diamond rings; what more could we possibly need?
