Tom Hardy: Absence makes the heart grow fonder

grazia baftas

As you'll see in today's mag, an intrepid four-strong Team Grazia did the BAFTAs in style last week - we wore Alberta Ferretti, Lucy in Disguise, Emilia Wickstead and Issa; we were coiffured by Charles Worthington and lacquered by Illamasqua; we drank champagne, fell deeply in love with everyone we talked to - from Gemma Arterton to Helena Bonham Carter - then scuffed our Louboutins partying at the awesome W Hotel til the wee hours.

We also finally found out the winner of the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award - the BAFTA for rising talent, which we were honoured to be involved with again this year as a jury member (I think we may have mentioned that WE SAT NEXT TO TOM FORD FOR AN ENTIRE EVENING AS PART OF THIS PROCESS - see

As you may know, the winner was another very handsome Tom - Tom Hardy - someone we have been dying to meet for quite some time, who we had rather hoped we might meet then, but who couldn't be there on the night (sadface).

So, as he couldn't be there to give us a quote, we have decided to celebrate him visually with this lovely picture.

So Tom, call us, yeah?

UPDATE: Tom was on Alan Carr's Chatty Man last night to explain his BAFTAs absence. Watch the video below but be careful, you might fall in love with him...
