Simon Chilvers assesses the hits and misses on a rain sodden red carpet in London

As red carpet award seasons go, 2013's hasn't exactly been vintage. Long, safe and strapless – with the odd rogue halter-neck – does not make for a particularly exciting series of fashion parades.

Sadly, the Baftas' sartorial offerings didn't improve things that much. No one laid an egg, wore a Gap turtle neck or even thought to invite Cher. Instead, the rain sodden carpet featured many women dandering around with bare shoulders looking freezing.

One story on the carpet was surely the protocol of wearing a coat. As the impossibly good-looking Jennifer Lawrence first appeared on the carpet in flawless make up, she did so in a sensible wool overcoat. Soon this was ditched to reveal her sequin embellished strapless Dior gown, which was perfectly pretty but minus the coat, somehow lacked edge.
