BAFTA Awards Style Hits & Misses

A ray of sunshine in Dior Couture, scarlet lips and a mega-watt smile. Marion Cotillard looked like she could have lit up the Royal Opera House single-handedly.

Dior scored a perfect hat trick with Alicia Vikander's mullet-hemmed gown. Great from the front, even better from the back.
Laura Bailey was a breath of fresh air in this loose-silhouette pink dress. Heavy black kohl on the eyes made for a grungy contrast to this feminine get-up by Roskanda Ilincic
SJP curved the red carpet gown trend with a slinky black play suit by Elie Saab. Sleek and sensible considering the downpour outside.
We think this looks suspiciously like the dress Helena Bonham Carter wore to the Golden Globes. Well, when you find such a chic ensemble - don't mess.
The rain might have splashed Jessica Chastain's satin hemline, but this electric blue Roland Mouret number is the stand out frock from the starlet's awards season wardrobe so far. This progress bodes well for the looming Oscars.
Thandie Newton may have embraced her natural locks but she has also embraced far too much lace. Ill-fitting around the chest area and with an unnecessary thigh-high slit, this look gets a definite no from us.
Saoirse Ronan earns her style stripes in the fickle fashion circles of Hollywood, the teenage actress stuns in this fun and floral Christopher Kane dress. The Carlow girl stays true to her 'natural girl' style with a tight bun and minimal makeup.
There's so much nipping and tucking and gathering going on here, and still no discernable shape. Sorry Sarah Silverman, it's just not lighting our fire.
Anne Hathaway went for a no-frills look, in a simple black gown with studded detailing by Burberry. A nice departure from the starlet's recent floral flirtation. Loving that bespoke Anya Hindmarch 'Les Mis' clutch too.
Amanda Byram turns heads in this fitted sequinned number by Jacques Azagury.and bling by Nassim Asgari. Talk about lighting up the red carpet!
Love the simple elegance of Juno Temple's dress and beauty look - but what's with that total clanger of a handbag? So off-message, it's untrue.
We've got quite the lady crush on Helen McCrory, who always looks so happy to be on the arm of her Homeland star husband. Looking lovely in turquoise, Helen brightens up a dreary London night.
Yes this is Gemma Arterton in Celia Kritharioti, not a humbug sweet. A truly bizarre choice.
Beautiful dress Paloma, but what's with the giant pretzel hair? It's literally squashing her.
Once your eyes navigate past Amy Adams' humungous - and extremely dated - bun and high street wedge sandals, you reach an abundance of black lace which, quite frankly, wouldn't look out of place on Strictly Come Dancing. The thigh-high leg split is just the cherry on top of this fussy get-up by Elie Saab.
This structured monochrome Elie Saab dress ticks the boxes on paper, but in reality proves a tad ill-fitting for Jennifer Garner. The awkward half-peplum bulges over her hips and exposes an ugly zip at the back.
When did flames come back into fashion? Though Alice Eve would have got Torvill and Dean's sartorial nod of approval, it gets the thumbs down from us. What a ridiculous quiff, too
Pink hair is not for every 67-year-old, but Helen Mirren scores a hit from us for breaking the mold with such nonchalant conviction. Plus it was the perfect tonal accompaniment to her Nicholas Oakwell Couture gown.
Laura Whitmore outdoes some of Hollywood's biggest names in this bang-on-trend black jumpsuit by Alexandre Vauthier. Her old Hollywood hair and makeup earn her major style stripes in our books.
Chanel's monochrome blooms could look overly-fussy on the wrong model, but Rising Star nominee Elizabeth Olsen looks truly bewitching. The textured posies make for a welcome contrast to all the rain-soaked satin, too.
Hayley Atwell's striking Antonio Berardi gown was so spot on, starlets everywhere searching for the perfect Oscars gown will be kicking themselves.
Jennifer Lawrence has been vying for Marion Cotillard's place as Dior darling this awards season. Thankfully this white, sequinned petal-embellished number doesn't have any awkward flesh flashing hemlines to contend with. We hope her waist doesn't shrink any more for the Oscars though.

From Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard in Dior, to Anne Hathaway in Burberry, find out which starlets got it right on the 2013 Baftas red carpet.
