Style Watch: BAFTAs 2016
On Sunday night, we eagerly tuned in to watch the EE BAFTA Film Awards 2016. As Hollywood’s finest film talent gathered together at London’s Royal Opera House, we knew were in for a treat.
As we watched the stars descend on the red carpet, we were blown away by some of the truly stunning gowns and hairstyles chosen by our favourite leading ladies. (A special mention goes to Leonardo DiCaprio for the men – he never fails to look dapper on the red carpet.)
Our favourite gown of the night was worn by none other than the ever-elegant Cate Blanchett. She rarely puts a foot wrong in the style stakes and her embellished Alexander McQueen dress was no exception. Cate kept her hair demure with a smooth, side-swept style that complemented her glamorous gown perfectly.
Kate Winslet wore her tresses in her trademark flowing waves – a popular style on the night. While Kate kept her locks more relaxed with a beachy texture, Isla Fisher and Olga Kurylenko went for full-on glamour, with side-swept glossy waves. This style is always a winner for awards season and it’s great for special occasions too! Steal their style with our how-to guide.
Last night’s updos were worn soft, in keeping with spring/summer 2016’s Romantic trend. Take your cues from Annabelle Wallis and Antonia Thomas, keeping your ‘do low with a few loose strands to frame your face.
