The British are elegant and friendly people, so it’s no surprise their film award ceremony is as delightful as they are. This year, not too many gowns wowed us, but there were several excellent choices on the London red carpet. Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) shocked everyone by showing up in this sophisticated black and white silhouette from… H&M! While you won’t find this gown at your local mall, Williams still looks adorable with red lipstick, dark nails and the accessory of the season – an Arthur Miller book clutch from Olympia Le-Tan. (Fun Fact: Arthur Miller was married to Marilyn Monroe, who Williams was nominated for playing!) Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig looked especially beautiful in a gathered white Alberta Ferretti gown and new brunette locks. Our final favorite was created by Valentino – the perfect designer to feature two days before Valentine’s Day! Best Actress nominee Viola Davis decided to take part in the Green Carpet Challenge (where celebrities sport environmentally-sound digs on the red carpet), wearing a one-shouldered light pink gown made of eco fabric and… recycled plastic bottles! Going green never looked so good!
