BAFTAs after party: How the stars celebrated into the night

She may be pregnant with her first baby, but that didn’t The Imitation Game actress Keira Knightley from letting her hair down at the BAFTAsafterparty on Sunday night (Feb. 8). Held at London’s Royal Opera House immediately after the “British Oscars” ceremony, some of film’s biggest stars – from Amy Adams to Ethan Hawke – engaged in a little revelry following the pomp and circumstance of the British awards show.

Together with her musician hubby James Righton, 29-year-old Keira partied the night away, despite missing out on the gong for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, which was taken home by Boyhood’s Patricia Arquette.

The British beauty was as stunning as ever as she showcased her blossoming baby bump in a glamorous Giambattista Valli floral embellished strapless gown for the glitzy event, paired with a leather jacket.

Keira’s co-star Benedict also partied into the night at The Weinstein Company’s post-BAFTA party at Rosewood London, in partnership with Grey Goose vodka. The star, who lost out on a BAFTA to Eddie Redmayne for his performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, didn’t let his near-miss dampen his spirits, as he was seen playfully posing for a photo with fellow actor Tom Hiddleston.

The British Academy Film Awards host Stephen Fry also headed to the Rosewood from the Royal Opera House, accompanied by his new husband Elliott Spencer, with whom Stephen tied the knot at the beginning of the year. The pair were positively beaming, both looking dapper – Stephen in a tuxedo and black bow tie, and Elliot dressed in a smart suit with burgundy velvet jacket.

The glittering guest list also included Amy Adams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Cuba Gooding Jr, Daisy Lowe, Jimmy Carr and his girlfriend Karoline Copping, among others. Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike also stepped out for the afterparty, looking incredible after welcoming her baby nine weeks ago.
