Fashion and Film
Jaime Winston wears Alexander McQueen

Fashion and film have had a strong love affair since the big screen was born. Red carpet, after red carpet designers jump in line, crawl all over each other and worst of all pay celebrities to dress them for them night.

So it’s no wonder the fashion pack is all over the latest marriage of fashion and film which has been championed by critics are the most genius idea ever. The Bafta’s being held at the same time as London Fashion Week has enabled U.K. based designers to jump the front of the queue leaving U.S designers back where they’re based.

For the first time ever, elite designers saw the catwalk turn into carpet, quite literally when dresses were whisked off models onto movie stars. Everyone from Victoria Beckham to Stella McCartney had celebs in robes.

Burberry, who made their second appearance on London catwalks after returning last year, had top pick for the night choosing Claire Danes and nominee Saiorse Ronan to wear their wares.

Alexander McQueen was remembered in style when Sam Taylor-Wood squeezed her baby bump into one of his gorgeous gowns. Jaime Winstone followed suit in a more Grecian style dress.

It was Kate Winslet who wore the lacey Stella number. While Trudie Styler was in Victoria Beckham.

Overall it seemed the perfect pairing was more than a good idea to showcase the best of the best from London Fashion Week on the celebrities, who for weeks to come, will be entered into Best Dressed Lists the world over.
