Michelle Williams in custom H&M Conscious Collection
The 2012 Orange British Academy Film Awards, a.k.a. the BAFTA Awards, were held today in London. Although the red carpet wasn’t covered by television media on this side of the pond, the fashions were not to be missed. Favourites like Michelle Williams and Tilda Swinton brought their sartorial A games to the evening’s festivities.
Michelle wore custom H&M Conscious Collection with an Olympia Le-Tan book clutch, while Tilda donned a beautiful cap-sleeved Armani gown. There were some very pleasant surprises too: Christina Ricci in a stunning gold Givenchy wrap dress, English television presenter Fearne Cotton in a lovely, bow-embellished Moschino number, and Jessica Chastain in a gorgeous metallic Oscar de la Renta dress.

Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012
Awards season is officially underway, as the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards took over the television airwaves and Twitterverse last night. I dutifully watched every minute of pre-show red carpet coverage just so I could bring you this here post. And though I’d like to say that it was incredibly hard work on my part and that it was very tough to narrow the list down to only a handful of looks, the truth is that these 5 actresses and their stunning gowns were standouts that made my job easy.
Rooney Mara was one of the most highly anticipated red carpet arrivals of the evening, and she certainly didn’t disappoint in a chic black Nina Ricci dress. The always flawless Julianne Moore also chose a black gown, by Chanel Haute Couture no less. Her green tassel earrings by Fred Leighton complemented her scarlet hair perfectly.
That wasn’t the only burst of colour. Charlize Theron looked pretty in Dior pink, Emma Stone wore custom eggplant Lanvin, and Tilda Swinton marched to the beat of her own sartorial drum in sky blue Haider Ackermann. Each actress brought her very own brand of glam to the Golden Globes, making for one very fabulous red carpet.
