Carey Mulligan | Prabal Gurung | BIFA
Colin Firth | BIFA
The British acting community was out in force last night with Carey Mulligan, Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Rosamund Pike being among some of the big names to hit the Moet British Independent Film Awards in London.
LOOK OF THE DAY
Highly acclaimed actress Carey Mulligan looked stunning in a red Prabal Gurung gown teamed with a pretty sequinned Roger Vivier clutch. And not only winning the crown for best dressed, Carey also picked up the award for Best Actress for her role in the much-anticipated film Never Let Me Go.
The actress told press she wasn't expecting to win: 'It feels good! But I'm a bit shocked. It will go up in my parents' house actually, they've got stuff, it's kind of strange to have it in your own house. "Come in, have a cup of tea, look at my award!"'

Other winners of the night included Colin Firth who picked up the Best Actor award for his portrayal of King George VI in The King's Speech. The movie also received four other awards including Best British Independent Film and Best Supporting Actress for Helena Bonham Carter.
And Helena also picked up the Richard Harris award for Outstanding Contribution By An Actor to British Film.
Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt won Most Promising Newcomer for her role in In Our Name.
