Bafta has become truly glamorous not only is it held in The Royal Opera House, and in the Grosvenor House Ballroom, but it feels more star ridden than ever. Perhaps it is a case of 'less is more' or something is growing?. Truly.
The men looked the best though. Something has happened they seem to be sprucing themselves up. 
Beards are in fashion big time with Sam Mendes, Stephen Fry, George Clooney and Ben Affleck all looking dapper with their furry faces .   They must be doing a lot of period dramas? They all look so dashing.
Many stars were piled on to the red carpet last night, all looked incredible despite the rain and lack of cover. Of course I was wearing a silk jersey number which had a train and by the time I arrived I was wet through, luckily Conny at Alexander Mcqueen had sent me the new collection and so I could go home and whip on a new dress.  There was a rumour that Emilia Fox  had  a million dollars of  diamonds around her neck, she looked a Duchess, she was escorted by the charming Charles Worthington. She was once given her a part by my ex husband in The Scarlet Pimpernel.  Paloma Faith was exotic in a gold dress to the floor. Jennifer Lawrence blew us all a kiss in  Christian Dior, and Marion Cotillard cheered us all up in yellow by the same designer.. A formidable line up of talent. The winner Argo, in my opinion deserved best film and received two other BAFTA's. Although I am not a fan of Lincoln. Daniel Day Lewis was voted best actor. I was on the table with my favourite British Film  Institute who l love.  Stephen Fry said it was a magnificent year for film but I am not sure about that. Not sure Thomas Newman should have won best score for Skyfall either.. wasn't it Monty Norman, John Barry, twelve other composers?.  John Barry was a genius for Goldfinger, he defined what Spy music should be. So please shouldn't this have gone to many others? Anyway as I guessed all the winners, I began to think everything was  a bit obvious. 
The tables at the Grosvenor House were stunning last night, laden with decorations which were totally ravishing. It was truly one of the best parties I have ever been to, you really cannot go wrong with a Clooney or two.
