Stars step out for pre-BAFTA bash

Stars step out for pre-BAFTA bash


Showbiz’s A-list flaunt their finest threads at the Lancome BAFTA nominees party, held at London’s Kensington Palace.

Acclaimed British actor Eddie Redmayne, dressed in a classic suit and tie combo, clearly can’t contain his excitement about potentially winning a second consecutive statuette for his role in ‘The Danish Girl’. And the beaming actor’s wife Hannah Bagshawe betrays little sign of a baby bump beneath a demure black dress with a tiered skirt.

‘Carol’ actress Cate Blanchett goes gothic in an edgy leather leather top and floral embellished tulle skirt from Chanel, while Penelope Cruz puts her ‘Zoolander 2’ experience to good use, wearing a fashionable white lace panelled mini dress. And ‘How To Be Single’ star Dakota Johnson sports an unusual tweed miniskirt coloured a certain shade of grey.

Sam Claflin and Laura Haddock look loved-up on their first public appearance as parents. Laura, 30, showed off her svelte figure in a beautiful floor-length gown, while her husband is dapper in a three-piece blue suit. And ‘Spotlight’ star Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney co-ordinate their outfits in smart monochrome.

The 69th British Academy Film Awards takes place on February 14.
