The most important awards in the UK film industry gathered together some of the biggest names in British cinema, along with plenty of Hollywood royalty, all dressed up to the nines.
The British Academy of Film and Arts gave away their top honors during the ceremony held at the Royal Opera House in London, on February 16, 2014.

Attending the BAFTAs along with partner Brad Pitt (“12 Years A Slave”), Angelina Jolie made a splash on the red carpet with her Saint Laurent suit.
Seeing Brangelina in matching tuxedos was a true celebrity fashion moment, and Jolie’s outfit was completed with a satin bow tie and Tiffany & Co. Jewels, earning her the top spot as best dressed at the BAFTA Awards 2014.
Even if she lost the award for Best Supporting Actress to Jennifer Lawrence (“American Hustle”), Lupita Nyong’o managed to extend her flawless streak as one of the best dressed actresses during award season. Her Dior Couture gown was perfectly accessorized with green Christian Louboutin shoes and Ana Khouri gold cuffs and pearl earrings.
One of the biggest winners at the award ceremony, Cate Blanchett went home with the award for Best Leading Actress (“Blue Jasmine”). She also stunned on the red carpet as one of the best dressed at the BAFTA Awards 2014 in a black Alexander McQueen dress. The Australian actress opted for a glamorous updo with a bun to complete her red carpet look.
Dame Helen Mirren
Honored with the BAFTA Fellowship Award at the ceremony, Dame Helen Mirren took the stage to claim her prize from Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, after a long tribute to her best acting moments. She also impressed on the red carpet, in a sparkling Jacques Azagury gown with embellished sheer sleeves and wore Asprey earrings along with her simple, but sleek hairstyle.
Proving that you can still make the best dressed at the BAFTA Awards 2014 list even without a stunning gown, Uma Thurman opted for simpler, but very elegant, Atelier Versace spring 2014 creation. The sleeveless and fitted black dress was perfectly flattering to her statuesque figure. Her gorgeous presence on the red carpet also included Chopard jewels and a sophisticated updo.
Nominated for “American Hustle”, Amy Adams lost one of the top honors to Cate Blanchett but she was a definite winner on the red carpet. The American actress applied the “When in Rome...” principle and wore a custom Victoria Beckham gown in all black with a masculine collar. Amy Adams chose a sleek look for her hair, pinning it to the side in a bun for a truly elegant look.
Nominated as a Supporting Actress for her performance in “The Butler”, Oprah Winfrey managed to make the best dressed list at the BAFTA Awards 2014 in a gorgeous Stella McCartney creation. While the superb lace bodice was very flattering, it was the satin bow sash that really brought the outfit together and helped Oprah make a big impact at the ceremony.
French actress Olga Kurylenko rocked the red carpet in Burberry. Combining a black V-neck bodice over a bandeau top with a coppery and shiny red skirt, the former Bong girl managed to draw a lot of attention from the paparazzi. The figure-hugging dress was accessorized only with a simple bracelet, and the actress’ hair was styled with sexy waves, perfectly suited to the gown.
Unlike most of her peers who chose to wear designs from new collections or custom made gowns, Gillian Anderson showed up on the red carpet in vintage 1949 Balmain. The color-blocked haute couture gown was accessorized with a diamond and blue gemstone necklace, while Anderson kept her hair and makeup simple.
The most controversial pick for the best dressed at the BAFTA Awards 2014 list, Lily Allen opted for an orange, coral and fuchsia Vivienne Westwood gown. The ceremony held at the Royal Opera House is always welcoming of more risqué looks, but the British singer held it together by adding yet another strong color in her hair, a pink fringe accessory for an even more dramatic look. The final touch to her look consisted for David Morris jewelry.
