Some of these girls might be feeling a bit gutted this morning (there are only two award winners in our sartorial top ten) but this is only the beginning of awards season, and so far, they've all come out on top…in the style stakes at least. We can't wait to see what they'll be wearing next. Bring on the BAFTAs!
Best Space-Age Chic: Diane Kruger in Emilia Wickstead
British-based designer Emilia Wickstead told us recently that she loves this silver disco fabric, and we do too. It’s iridescent rather than in-yer-face sparkly, and that saves it from being over-the-top. It’s also the perfect shade for porcelain-skinned Diane Kruger, who looked absolutely stunning.
Best In Green: Felicity Jones in Dior
This wasn’t the night’s only attempt at an unusual shade of green - Lana Del Rey’s bright turquoise number didn’t quite hit the mark while Ruth Wilson’s emerald worked well - but our Felicity was bang on with this gorgeous teal Dior gown. And while that high neckline and demure shape is very traditional, the colour brings this dress right up to date.
Best Boy Chic: Lorde in Narciso Rodriguez
Who says the red carpet has to be all gowns and girliness? Lorde’s a winner for us because she looks SUPER cool in this tux-crop top combo AND she looks totally comfortable, too. Because there’s nothing less stylish that a girl who can’t breath because her dress is too tight/might fall over her train/can’t walk in her shoes.
Best Fashion Frock: Ruth Wilson in Prada
Traditional princess fairy tale gown? “No thanks”, says Best Actress In A TV Series winner Ruth Wilson, who instead opted for this proper fashion frock by Prada. That retro emerald green is seldom seen on the red carpet, and we love that this season’s frayed edges have made it to Hollywood.
Best ‘We’d Like To Wear This Dress’ Dress: Maggie Gyllenhaal in Miu Miu
This is a dress that just makes you wish you were going to a posh event and you need to dress up. Or that your best mate wants you to be bridesmaid and has given you an unlimited budget for the dress. Maggie, we are WELL JEL.
Best In White: Emily Blunt in Michael Kors
There was stiff competition in this category – Rosamund Pike and Kristen Wiig also looked stunning in white gowns – but for us, Emily Blunt was the clear winner with her Grecian-style frock and that fabulous up-do. We’re going to try that on our own hair later on…
Best Embellishment: Claire Danes in Valentino
A busy dress like this could overpower the wearer, but the dark colours keep it subtle and chic. Congrats to Claire Danes for the minimal hair and make-up too – let that gorgeous gown do the talking.
Best ‘No-One Else Could Wear This Dress’ Dress: Lupita Nyong’o in Giambattista Valli
If we’d seen this dress on the hanger, we might not have been sure about it, but now we’ve seen it on Lupita, we think it’s pretty beautiful. Is there anything this girl doesn’t look amazing in? Probably not…
Best Old School Hollywood Glamour: Allison Williams in Armani
It might be a fool-proof option at an event like this, but Allison Williams really stood out in a sea of red in this showstopper (other stars who wore scarlet include Lena Dunham, Kate Mara and Heidi Klum). Those smoky eyes and vintage waves couldn’t be more fitting.
Best In Show: Emma Stone in Lanvin
Sometimes the stylist gets absolutely everything right, and this look is the equivalent of ‘best film’ award; in other words, our favourite of the entire night. The Lanvin jumpsuit is perfect for her frame and that bustle and train add the required drama for a glitzy awards ceremony. The best thing about it is that it could have gone so wrong…but it ended up SO right.
