2010 BAFTA Awards
Kate Winslet and Colin Firth
The annual British Academy of Film and Television Awards-England's version of the Oscars-brought the stars out to London's Royal Opera House. After winning the award for Best Actor for his role in A Single Man, Colin Firth (in Tom Ford) stopped to pose with presenter Kate Winslet, who wore a cut-out Stella McCartney dress and Tiffany & Co. jewels. The actress admitted she didn't mind the constant award show gown scrutiny. "Fashion and film are now hand in hand," she said.
Nominated in the Best Actress category for her role as designer Coco Chanel in Coco Before Chanel, Audrey Tautou, in Lanvin, channeled her character through her fragrance. "Chanel? I'm wearing the perfume but not the dress," she said.
After taking home the Best Actress award for her role in An Education, Carey Mulligan looked radiant in her newly blond locks, floral Vionnet gown and Fred Leighton drop earrings. Her beaming smile successfully masked her nerves. "I was so unbelievably nervous, my brain was going so fast," she told us. "I got halfway through the speech and thought, 'I've got to get off the stage!'"
Anna Kendrick, a Best Supporting Actress nominee for Up in the Air, lit up the red carpet in a yellow tiered Pucci dress. The newcomer also presented the Best Supporting Actor award to Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds.
Robert Pattinson looked dapper in a Gucci suit as he presented the Best Original Screenplay award to Mark Boal for The Hurt Locker. The Twilight Saga star arrived to the show solo but was spotted leaving with costar and Orange Rising Star Award winner Kristen Stewart.
Chic and girly in a strapless ivory Chanel dress, Kristen Stewart picked up the Orange Rising Star award. In her acceptance speech, the Twilight Saga actress thanked Twi-hards for "proving again and again to be the most devoted and attentive fans ever."
Uma Thurman, in a custom-made gold lace Burberry gown, joined Prince William on the stage to present the Academy Fellowship award to actress Vanessa Redgrave. Thurman is currently filming the film Bel Ami, in which she plays a Parisian socialite who's romanced by Robert Pattinson.
Best Actress nominee Gabourey Sidibe went glam in a Tadashi Shoji champagne dress and a diamond leaf necklace. The highlight of the night for the Precious star? Sharing the red carpet with Prince William, who was just feet away.
After he and Uma Thurman presented the Academy Fellowship award to Vanessa Redgrave, Prince William was also named the BAFTA's new president. "I have to say, there is nothing better than going to see a really good film so this is a great personal thrill for me," he told the crowd.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Fresh from the New York Fashion Week debut of their line, The Row, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen blew off steam at the Weinstein Co. and Universal's BAFTA after-party at London's Momos nightclub.
For Chanel's pre-BAFTA party at London restaurant Annabel's on Saturday night, Lily Allen glistened in a leaf-print dress by the brand. The pop singer also wore Chanel when she won for Best British Female at the Brit Awards earlier that week.
Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan
Before they accepted their awards for Best Actor and Actress, Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan (in Chanel) graced Chanel's pre-BAFTA party at London restaurant, Annabel's.
Thandie Newton and Gabourey Sidibe
Also at the Chanel party was British actress Thandie Newton, who wished Gabourey Sidibe luck on her Best Actress BAFTA nomination.
For the Chanel party, Claire Danes smoldered in a sheer black Chanel dress and dramatic smoky eyes. The actress hit the BAFTA's red carpet the next day head-to-toe in Burberry.
After hitting the front rows at London Fashion Week, Janet Jackson attended the Chanel pre-BAFTA party in a plunging black shirt and jacket.
