Helena Bonham Carter collects her BAFTA award wearing Solange Azagury-Partridge bracelet and earrings

There are a lot people out there documenting who wore what frock down the red carpet at the BAFTA's. But I look at the jewellery and see what I can spot. The first thing that struck me as I looked at the first images coming in from the BAFTA's over my bowl of Alpen this morning, was how little jewellery there was adorning the stars on the red carpet last night. This is probably a pared-down, laid-back, too-cool-to-care Brit thing and given half a chance I am sure that some of them would have turned up in their dressing gowns.  I am not saying this just because I happened to be in a dressing gown myself at that moment. It is more likely that the jewel-bright, floor-sweeping drama of the frocks that dictated accents rather than jewellery statements. What jewels the stars did wear, were very much in keeping with their personalities and Brit-jewellers seems to be the first choice. Take Thandie Newton. I am sure she had jewellery PRs courting her to wear something big and exploding with carats but as Thandie is a friend of Solange Azagury-Partridge it is not a suprise she chose her old china's jewellery. And as for Helena Bonham Carter, the eccentric quirkiness of Solange Azagury-Partridge fits right in with her style - and I am sure that husband Tim Burton approves of these way out there jewels. Who wore their jewellery with the most style? I would love to hear what you think.  I can't stop thinking that Julianne Moore so suits the 1970's style Bulgari Serpenti cuff bracelet that it has to be my first choice of perfect jewellery style. But that may be because I still think of her in the ultimate 70's film: Boogie Nights.
