The BAFTA Film Awards took place last night in a rather rainy London, and I was so happy to see some very deserving winners had been chosen- Colin Firth won Best Actor for his role in The King's Speech, and the amazing Inception walked away with several awards too. And I was so happy that Tom Hardy won the Orange Rising Star Award, the only award voted for by the public as I think he's an amazing actor (unlike last year's dubious winner, I'm looking at you Kristen Stewart!) The BAFTA red carpet was also host to a parade of fabulous frocks:
 Amy Adams looked stunning in this peach Elie Saab gown with embellished detailing.

 Bonnie Wright in Clements Ribeiro.

Emma Stone in Lanvin.

 Eva Green played the understated card in this Tom Ford gown, and I loved her classic hairstyle.

 Gemma Arterton wearing Yves Saint Laurent.

 Hailee Steinfeld was my favourite of the night in this sparkly Miu Miu ensemble.

 I've included this photo a) because Julianne Moore looks amazing and b) because I have serious date envy. I think we should all have a Tom Ford a-like on call for such occasions!

Noomi Rapace, nominated for Best Actress for her role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, looking amazing in Alexander McQueen. 

Did you watch the BAFTAs? What did you think of the winners? And what were your favourite red carpet looks?

The annual V Festival took place last weekend at two sites in the UK: Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in Staffordshire, and acts performing this year included Kings of Leon, Florence and the Machine and Kasabian. As if more proof was needed that today's music festivals are as much about who is wearing what as who is headlining, was on site in Chelmsford, snapping the best dressed attendees, including:

Alexa Chung, in lace up wellies, denim cut-offs, Kurt Cobain tee and Aran cardigan.

Drew Barrymore, looking very bohemian with Justin Long.

Florence Welch, carrying a Mulberry bag.

Gemma Arterton.

Karen Gillan.

If you're feeling inspired by the outfits of either Alexa or Florence in particular, get yourself down to Topshop. They've got a gorgeous Knitted Aran Cardigan which is almost identical to Alexa's and a Mustard Short Sleeve Shirt which I'm pretty sure is the very same as Florence's.

£48, Topshop.
£38, Topshop.
To see the best of the rest from V Festival, visit What are your thoughts? Also, is it me, or have Topshop really hiked up their prices for Autumn/Winter? Thank goodness for student discount!

Gemma Arterton for i-D Magazine, Summer 2010:

The way that this feature has been shot somehow feels very retro, and Gemma looks gorgeous, as always. I read in the newspaper the other day that her name is in the frame to star in a remake of Funny Girl, and I'm sure she'd be brilliant playing Fanny Brice, a role which won Barbra Streisand an Oscar back in 1969. Fingers crossed!

The humble blazer has become something of a wardrobe staple over recent years, and I for one can't get enough of them. A blazer is versatile, smart and practical- perfect for those overcast days where it's a bit too chilly to leave home without layering up. The blazer has also become a fast favourite on the red-carpet and in the wardrobes of this lovely lot:

I'm currently lusting after this trio:

Shawl Collar Tux Blazer, Topshop, £65

Beige Amy Jacket, Oasis, £60

Free People Floral Long Sleeve Blazer, Urban Outfitters, £49.99

So what do you think? Will you be investing in a new blazer for the summer?
