Plenty of amazing gowns on display at the recent British Academy Film Awards! Here are our 10 favourite picks - do you agree with our choices?
Lupita Nyong'o looked absolutely incredible in this emerald green Christian Dior piece with Christian Louboutin heels. The gown - which was strapless with a dramatic and voluminous train - was accessorised with Ana Khouri gold jewellery to match the belt. The actress has been consistently outstanding on the red carpet this awards season.         Amy Adams looked sultry in this black Victoria Beckham column gown. The silhouette emphasised her petite figure and the collar and sheer panel details meant that the actress needed minimal jewellery and a simple, slick hairstyle.        Imogen Poots wore a unique halter neck dress with cut-out details by Givenchy. The gown was a rich berry red shade and paired with simple black pumps and matching black nail polish.         Uma Thurman's navy blue Atelier Versace strapless gown was simple but stunning. The silk cady piece was first paired with a matching jacket, which Thurman later removed. There was a sexy slit up the back of the gown and the actress also chose to wear an elegant diamond necklace.       Samantha Barks looked lovely wearing this belted Calvin Klein off-white strapless gown, which fit her beautifully. Barks had her hair in a romantic braided updo and wore a bold beaded necklace.       Lily Allen wore an extravagant Vivienne Westwood satin gown, full of vibrant colour. The strapless dress is named the 'Grande Bubbly Corset Gown' and features a giant bow on the back. The singer also had a bright pink hairpiece - a look that definitely stood out.         Naomie Harris looked beautiful and elegant in this Gucci gown, with a deep v-neckline and high slit up the front of the skirt. To match the black belt, Harris accessorised with a Rauwolf clutch and Christian Louboutin heels. There was also a touch of sparkle added to the outfit with Cartier jewellery.       Michelle Rodriguez wore a sexy blue gown by Emilio de la Morena. The dress had a plunging neckline, capped sleeves and leather details. The figure hugging piece was paired with an Emm Kuo clutch.       Emma Thompson wore a fur collared coat and red gown, both by Maria Grachvogel. After removing the coat, Thompson's dress was revealed with a cowl-neckline and a figure-flattering fit.        Lastly, Cate Blanchett chose a sleek black Alexander McQueen gown with short sleeves. The silver floral design was matched with a Chopard necklace, depicting branches and birds. Blanchett's hair was swept into a chic updo.         To book a free consultation with us phone (03) 9509 4633 d'Italia is open 7 days 10am-5pm and is located at 62 Glenferrie Road, Malvern, Melbourne
