Inside The Weinstein And BVLGARI BAFTA Party: What REALLY Happened...

When the most powerful man in Hollywood AKA Harvey Weinstein, invites you to party with the A-listers, you know it's going to be a night to remember...

Everyone knows that Sunday nights are made for pajamas, a sofa and a box-set. That is everyone but the most powerful man in Hollywood AKA Harvey Weinstein. Every year he throws a post BAFTA party that just happens to fall on a Sunday. But when it's a Harvey party you just know it's going to be worth dragging yourself out at silly o'clock to sip champagne and mingle (read practically rub shoulders with) some mega A-listers. From #selfies with Cuba Gooding Jr to a not so subtle entrance from Leonardo DiCaprio here are our most memorable moments from last night's bash...  

 

The dresses...

Upon arrival Gwendoline Christie headed straight to the dancefloor, hoisting up her plum coloured full-length Lanvin gown so she could really strut some moves, while Rooney Mara switched from her Givenchy haute couture gown into a much more practical for dancing but no less stylish all black ensemble. Wearing a very low-cut Miu Miu dress and sipping champagne at the mirrored bar, Stacey Martin and her boyfriend Daniel Blumberg were having a very regal looking Valentine's Night date. Elsewhere, Gemma Chan wearing an embellished metallic full length gown from Jenny Packham and Saoirse Ronan in a glittering floral Burberry number went head to head in the shimmering stakes. "I feel like a mermaid," Gemma giggled. 

 

 

Cuba Gooding Jr and Benicio Del Toro's bromance...

All boisterous laughter and back-slapping these guys couldn't get enough of each other. But what were they giggling about? The boys wouldn't say. So mysterious! Playing OJ Simpson in BBC's The People v. O.J. Simpson, Cuba also had a similar "my lips are sealed" response when asked for his opinion on OJ's innoence. Apparently, he'd much prefer for us just to watch the show and make up our own minds than get distracted by whether he thought he did or didn't do it. 

Forcing Benicio Del Toro to take a #selfie...

When we asked the boys for a picture, Benicio initally refused: "I don't do #selfies." Somehow, Cuba and us didn't think this was an acceptable answer so we persuaded (read forced) the The Usual Suspects star into posing. 

 

 

Discovering that Cuba Gooding Jr is charm personified...

Post #selfie, Cuba turned to us and in a Joey Tribbiani style voice said: "How You Doing" before giving us a bear hug. Swoon. 

The pudding room... 

Pre-midnight the chocolate fountain, cream filled buns and mini lemon meringue pies remained untouched with everyone claiming they were #sugarfree. Post midnight, it was like a sugar apocalypse with party-goers literally elbow-bashing each other out the way to get their fix.  

 

 

Bumping into Tanya Burr and Jim Chapman in said pudding room... 

Having been at the BAFTA ceremony since 3pm, the Youtubers were well in need of a sugar boost. Their faves?  "I can't get enough of those strawberries and the chocolate fountain," Jim admitted. So what has 2016 got in store for the duo? Having presented numerous live red carpet premieres, Jim is keen to do more TV presenting, while Tanya has been having acting lessons and is set on pursuing a career in Hollywood. BAFTA watch out! 

Poppy Jamie's stamina...

Even a blistered toe and severe jet-lag didn't stop this TV presenter from partying. "The tiredness from jet-lag is making me really emotional. I even cried when Leo won his BAFTA. It's quite hilarious really. But this party is always the best so I'm powering my way through."

Idris Elba's strict timing keeping...

He came. He posed. He left. Talk about being efficient. 

 

 

Leo's not so subtle entrance...

Apparently the BAFTA winner didn't want to make a fuss when he rocked up at 3.30am. Just a word of advice Leo for future entrances. Wearing a tweed cap to a black tie event where it's also absolutely boiling and walking across the jammed dancefloor in said cap with an entourage of about 15 people including model Lily Donaldson might not be the best way of ensuring that no-one really notices you. #justsaying 

Annabelle Wallis's posing style...

InStyle: Can we take a picture? 

Annabelle Wallis: "Of course." *strikes the I'm a little teapot pose. Is this ok? Do I look ok?"

InStyle: Errr, surprisingly yes, it's working! To be honest, Annabelle if we had arms like yours it would totally be our signture pose too.
