It was the biggest night of the year for the British film industry as the great and the good from here and across the Pond gathered in London for the Bafta British Academy Film awards.

But of course, no star-studded showbiz event would be complete without oodles of red carpet glamour.

And Harry Potter star Emma Watson led the charge last night for home grown beauty as she shone on the red carpet at the Royal Opera House in a stunning floor length nude gown by Valentino.


Stunning: Emma Watson was wearing a beautiful off-the-shoulder nude Valentino chiffon floor-length pleated frock for the British Academy Film Awards in London last night


Stunning: Emma, left, was described by JK Rowling as like 'my daughter' as they posed with the Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema award for the Harry Potter films

She was hoping not to repeat her wardrobe malfunction of a pre-Baftas party on Saturday night in London, when she inadvertently flashed her chest with some tape keeping her plunging frock in place gave way.


Talking to Sky News, the Harry Potter actress said of the film's Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema award on the night: 'We're really honoured, it's nice to be able to accept it on behalf of all the hundreds of Brits who have been involved in the film over the past 10 years.'

The actress stood next to JK Rowling on the red carpet, who described Emma as 'like my daughter'.


Honoured: Emma Watson spoke of Harry Potter being awarded Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema award, saying: 'We're really honoured'


Red carpet glamour: Best Supporting Actress winner Helena Bonham Carter looked glamorous in her trademark Vivienne Westwood meanwhile nominee Julianne Moore stunned in blue velvet Tom Ford


Newcomers: True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld, wore a black lace Miu Miu dress but admitted that she was freezing without a coat, meanwhile Minnie Driver also braved the cold in a white Temperley gown


Bafta winner Helena Bonham Carter, who won Best Supporting Actress for The King's Speech, arrived in trademark Vivienne Westwood, a flawless black and very slightly regal frock.

Talking to reporters on the red carpet, the 44-year-old Londoner joked that she didn't worry about the constant comments about what she was wearing.

With reference to her outfit at the Golden Globes, she laughed: 'I am wearing matching shoes, I got it right! To be honest, I just put my head down, I wouldn't leave the house if I did (pay attention to the comments). I just put on what I want and leave the house.'

Accepting her accolade later that night, she paid tribute to her 'genius' partner Tim Burton and ‘supporting wives all over the world’.

Her co-star and Best Actor winner Colin Firth, 50, arrived with his stunning Italian wife Livia Giuggioli, 42, who wore a blue satin Nina Skarra gown.

Meanwhile, Julianne Moore, 50, impressed in a blue velvet strapless Tom Ford dress and bright red lipstick for a glamorous entrance.

Moore was nominated for Best Actress for her role in The Kids Are All Right.

Also looking the business was 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, who is also up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in True Grit. She was wearing a black lace Miu Miu number.

The film with the most nominations is The King's Speech with 14 nods, and director Tom Hooper was one of the early arrivals.

Talking to reporters, he said he was thrilled to be there. He added: 'We're at The Royal Opera House, the temple of the human voice, celebrating a film about a man who can't speak. There's a nice irony about that.'

The King's Speech also grabbed the attention of a number of other celebrities and Sir Paul McCartney told Sky News that he was a big fan of the British Film.

The 68-year-old said: 'The King's Speech was a great film this year, along with The Social Network. We've got a song in The Social Network but I prefer The King's Speech.'


Nominees: Colin Firth and his wife Livia Guiggoili with his Best Actor trophy, while his co-star Helena arrived arm in arm with partner Tim Burton

Breaking convention was actress Tilda Swinton, 50, who looked chic in a black Haider Ackermann suit.

Other British beauties dazzling in the chilly February rain included Kimberley Walsh and Rachel Stevens, who sparkled under the flashbulbs.

New mother Rachel, 32, showed off her post-baby body in a dazzling long Rachel Gilbert gown, with a bejewelled bodice that glittered off her glowing skin.

Girls Aloud singer Kimberley, 29, also wore a long lacy Ashish number which had a plunging neckline and was decorated with snowflakes that looked pretty twinkling under the lights.

Both girls were hosting red carpet coverage of the annual event for Orange, which sponsors the awards.

Other stars on the red carpet included Nicholas Hoult, artist Tracey Emin - also in Vivienne Westwood - Emma Watson's Harry Potter co-star star Rupert Grint and The Social Network star Jessie Eisenburg with Kevin Spacey, one of the film's producers.

British star Andrew Garfield, 27, meanwhile, a Best Supporting Actor Nominee, said he felt overwhelmed to be there.

'The fact that I'm in the company of these actors that I'm nominated with... I feel so privileged to be in their company and I find them all so inspiring,' he gushed.

Those who weren't nominated for any awards still tried to steal the spotlight in bright dresses, such as Sarah Harding's scarlet red George Chakra gown that boasted a thigh-high split up her leg and matching peep-toe heels.


Pale and interesting: The Kids Are All Right star Annette Bening (L) was wearing white Marchesa, while Emilia Fox wore pale gold Kate Halfpenny


Red hot: Scream actress Neve Campbell (left) in a Roberto Cavalli dress with plunging neckline and Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend Jackie St Clair in a red asymmetrical number

Thandie Newton, 38, went for Hollywood glamour in a floral pink strapless Monique Lhullier ball gown, while T4 presenter Jameela Jamil, 24, opted for a black and red Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress.

Gemma Arterton looked slimline in a black Yves Saint Laurent dress with oversized blue bow.

Arterton, 25, has been nominated for the Rising Star Award and told reporters: 'I'm so excited, but if anyone else won it, they'd deserve it too.'
