Yesterday saw the BAFTA’s to end all BAFTA’s. First there was a Brad and Angelina love in on the red carpet – the couple surprised everyone when they arrived hand in hand, Angelina stopping to straighten Brad’s bow tie. Never before have we seen such excitement at the awards as even Prince William walked down the red carpet.
After the awards came the dinner – held at Grosvenor Hotel – the ONLY place in London with a ballroom big enough to cater to the 2000 guests, serving up a delicious three course dinner. One person didn’t seem quite so keen on theirs though as Suki Waterhouse stuck her knife and fork into hers.
People queued to see Cate Blanchett who had earlier accepted the Lead Actress award. We caught up with Stephen Fry who was calling Amanda Berry – the CEO of BAFTA and Prince William’s date for the evening – the new Queen consort. We asked him how he felt his presentation skills had gone, ‘Everyone seemed happy, so that makes me happy,’ he said.
Later we headed to Harvey Weinstein’s post awards bash which was sponsored by Grey Goose and Bulgari – held at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel. There everyone was talking about Oprah who had her own table surrounded by 5 bodyguards. Amazing. Guests were entertained by Lisa Fischer, the Rolling Stones backing singer who appears in Oscar nominated documentary 20 Feet from Stardom.
What we loved was the number of celebs who seemed to have taken their Mum’s as their dates, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lupita Nyong’o all bought theirs along for the evening. Mega AWWWW.
Whilst Suki Waterhouse and Bradley Cooper put on some pretty mega PDA’s, Sadie Frost and Noel Gallagher hung out in the outside smoking area where they were entertained by an amazing brass band including a man with flames coming out of his instrument. What. A. Night.
