The Best of the BAFTAs

Actresses dazzled on the red carpet outside the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden for the BAFTAs. The carpet was awash with black, white, nude and metallics. Without further a do here's my best of BAFTAs.

I wanted to scream 'yes! finally a dress i like on Michelle Williams' when i seen her. Michelle looks gorgeous in this black and cream bespoke dress from none other than the high street shop H&M. Paired with that red lip she looks like a classic beauty.

You can always count on Tilda Swinton to stand out on the red carpet for better and worse. This time for better. She looks great in this structured white dress by Celine. The metallic strip at the bottom adds a little bit of glitz and stops the dress looking too clinical.

This metallic dress by Givenchy could be classed as a risk and i'm sure opinion is divided. Personally i love this dress on Christina Ricci; it has an almost oriental feel to it. The up-do, vampish make up and simple accessories pull the whole look together.

I wasn't sure on this Gorgio Armani Prive gown but it's grown on me. The colour looks amazing against Penelope Cruz's skin tone and the stiff straight neckline adds a uniqueness to the dress. Penelope made the right choice by wearing her hair up with only small earrings and keeping her lips natural with a slight smokiness to the eyes.

Meryl Streep is showing age is nothing but a number in this black Vivenne Westwood dress. Really like the added touch of ruffles and diamant├ęs on the arms, shoulders and stomach. A perfect mix of glamour and sophistication.

Not my favourite Viola Davis look but she still looks stunning in this custom made salmon pink dress by Valentino made out of recycled bottles! Yep, you read that right. It's part of Colin Firth's wife Livia's project Green Carpet Challenge encouraging designers and stars to wear sustainable fashion. Who knew recycled bottles could look so good.

Kristen Wiig goes Grecian in this Alberta Ferretti dress. I love the way it's pulled in on her side and the material falls beautifully. The gold bracelets, soft curls at the ends of her hair and golden make up gives an effortless feel.

Feline looking Melissa George shines in this figure hugging Victoria Beckham gown. The wet-look was also seen on Angelina Jolie at the SAG awards and looks just as good on Melissa. What i love about the dress is that her it gives the illusion of being dipped in black liquid and showing that you can be fully covered an still sexy. The flick of hair, pink lips and black lined eyes make this the sexiest look of the night.

What were your favourite looks of the night?
