BAFTAs go back to black – red carpet fashion from the 2012 award ceremony

Black is back. Or at least, that’s what you would gather from the steam of stars strutting their stuff down the red carpet at the BAFTAs this week. Many leading ladies from around the globe were spotted wearing that timeless classic, the ‘little black dress‘. “From black metallic gowns to gothic glamour and elegant patterns, the red carpet featured interesting designs in different shades of that timeless colour.”


Top award winner Meryl Streep (Best Actress for Iron Lady) and gorgeous Christina Hendricks stole the show, both wearing corset gowns designed by Vivienne Westwood.

And here’s a line up of a few of the many stars who chose to go back to black for the awards ceremony (Melissa George, Michelle Williams, the Downton Abbey girls):

  1. I read somewhere they were told to wear black to BAFTAs this year. Meryl Streep looked stunning in Vivienne Westwood! When I saw her I immediately knew she was wearing Westwood. You can always recognise a Vivienne Westwood dress. Lol.
