BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party 2014

Yesterday I had the honor of attending the Mulberry sponsored BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party, hosted at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills.

The annual event recognises the very best in filmmaking, and is always wonderfully relaxed and fun. As well as honoring the year’s nominees and winners, the Tea Party also raised awareness of the BAFTA Community Outreach and Philanthropic programs including their Heritage Archive and Inner City Cinema programs.

Some of the other BAFTA members in attendance included Sandra Bullock, Martin Scorsese, Leonard DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hanks, and Benedict Cumberbatch, among many others.

For the event I wore a beautiful vintage 1930s gown, vintage pearl earrings, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and carried a Mulberry purse, all styled by Hannah Loaring.

I would also like to take this opportunity to publicly congratulate my mentor and friend, Nigel Daly, on becoming chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles, which was announced at the event! Well done indeed Nigel, it is very well deserved.
