Red carpet wrap: Best and worst dressed

Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police this week?

Best dressed: Naomi Campbell

We've all done it. Stood at the open door of our bulging wardrobes and declared that we've got nothing, absolutely nothing, to wear. Somehow though, you never imagine a model doing the same thing.

But even the starriest of supermodels might have been stumped -- if only briefly -- by this assignment. Just what do you wear when you're receiving an award for 'Outstanding Contribution' to fashion?

The inimitable Ms Campbell didn't lose her customary cool though. Instead, she used the occasion to honour her old friend Alexander McQueen, and it paid off in spades.

She looks simply stunning in this snake-print mini dress.

Don't be tempted to follow in her sky-high heels though -- this look is for supers only, mere mortals can only dream.

Worst dressed: Kirsten Stewart

Oh Kirsten, we know it must have been hard for you.

After all those rumours that you and your gorgeous Twilight co-star were busily recreating your love scenes off set, you finally had to come and admit that it was true -- amid a chorus of Twihard tears.

Then, you had to stand up and say thanks as you received a BAFTA.

What a week. No wonder the dress got it.

All that teen angst must come out somewhere, and if a Pucci dress had to be the sacrificial lamb, then so be it.

It's a shame though, a little more material and it could have actually been almost flattering.
