British Designers Rule The Baftas 2014 Red Carpet

Amy Adams opted for Victoria Beckham, while Lily Allen stepped out in vibrant Vivienne Westwood

The Baftas is all about celebrating the best of British talent, so it makes sense that fashion should get a nod as well as the film industry –  especially since the ceremony takes place slap bang in the middle of London Fashion Week.

This year, some of the biggest names chose British designers to dress them for the red carpet. American Hustle star Amy Adams chose a black Victoria Beckham dress for the ceremony. The minimalist LBD with given a contemporary twist with a sheer cropped overlay, making it a perfect choice for the red carpet.

Meanwhile, Lily Allen turned heads in a vibrant Vivienne Westwood gown. The singer showed off her enviable figure in the eye-popping tangerine and fuchsia dress, which she also expertly clashed with the red carpet.

Sally Hawkins in Mulberry at the Baftas 2014

Blue Jasmine star Sally Hawkins, who was up for the best Supporting Actress award, wore a bespoke Mulberry gown for the evening. The cute pale blue jacquard number was created in collaboration with the actress – which is probably why she looks so good in it.

Cate Blanchett in Alexander McQueen at the Baftas

And Sally's fellow Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett, who won the Best Actress award, went for a simple and elegant silk Alexander McQueen gown, which she accessorised with a silver Roger Vivier clutch.

Although the spotlight may have been taken away from LFW for the evening, we're pleased to see British designers were still the big players on red carpet.
