IF there was an award for coolest couple on the planet then it would surely go to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who arrived for last night’s Bafta awards in perfectly matching tuxedos.

He wore his with a dapper new haircut and a pair of shiny patent shoes; she opted for tousled locks and pin-sharp stilettos — but together they stole the show and most of the limelight too as they struck their well-rehearsed poses, draped around each other in mutual adoration.

Naturally, they were greeted with gasps of admiration from the gathered throng and the flash of a thousand paparazzi lenses.

In fact, black and white was certainly a la mode once again at the event at London’s Royal Opera House.

Little black dresses abounded in any number of variations, with Uma Thurman, Amy Adams, Dame Helen Mirren, Nigella Lawson and Edith Bowman and a whole clatter of arm candy wives all opting for the super-safe choice.

Monochrome combos were popular too with the likes of Cate Blanchett who wore hers with a chic flash of art nouveau silver.

Maggie Gyllenhall looked utterly uncomfortable and for good reason. Her complicated concoction was so overly-encrusted with sequins, satin, lace, gold threads, silver embroidery, emeralds, sapphires, and pearls that she looked like she had half a haberdashery store tacked onto her outfit.

When an occasional flash of colour did put in an appearance, it certainly stood out from the crowd.

The Fall star Gillian Anderson bucked the trend in a lovely silk bandeau dress in. Lupita Nyongo, star of Twelve Years a Slave looked fabulous in a dazzling emerald green floor-sweeping gown and Lily Allen went all-out for a dramatic entrance in a mix of fuchsia, scarlet and coral.

Deep red was another shade that turned heads and was seen in various hues on Oprah Winfrey, Emma Thompson and Imogen Poots.

Sparkling gold added a gilt-edge of sheer glamour, in particular the fabulously sequinned number worn by TV presenter Fearne Cotton.

It did look pretty dazzling and went beautifully with her curly blonde hair-do. It’s a pity she didn’t fix her black roots, because that oversight completely ruined the overall effect.

Fave outfit? It would be the new Miss Moneypenny, Naomie Harris, whose deep pink tailored dress was absolutely stunning in ever way.
