• Glamorous gowns from leading ladies at the Baftas

  • A thoroughly British affair as Carey Mulligan and Colin Firth triumph at Baftas

    List of Bafta winners.  With her newly dyed blonde crop and a floor length red carpet gown, Carey Mulligan looked every inch a Hollywood star as she arrived for the prestigious BAFTA awards ceremony on Sunday evening. And her status as the film world's hottest new talent was further cemented when the British 24-year-old beat off competition from Meryl Streep and Audrey Tautou to win this year's best actress award. London-born Carey was honoured on her home turf for her role in An Education, in which she stars as a 1960s schoolgirl seduced by an older man. Presented with her trophy by

  • Four Seasons Istanbul: an escape to luxury

    Incredible though it sounds, this erstwhile prison, built in 1917, is a place you'd really want to escape to, not from. When you look a little closer, it makes more sense, as nothing has been left to chance when it comes to the delights in store behind the neoclassical façade. The building exterior preserves the original colour and the large, arched windows but the interior has been completely renovated with some of the most interesting architectural details being retained, including the guard towers, the prison governor's office and the marble staircase leading to the courtyard. Ottoman style, complemented with

  • Emily and Adam's near-perfect nuptials

    Last September, Emily and Adam Randall tied the knot at Farrington Golf Club in Somerset. Aside from a less-than-perfect speech by the groom and a mishap involving the bride's gown and some Buck's Fizz, the pair said they wouldn't have wanted their big day to have been any different. The newlyweds wanted to thank all of their family and friends for taking part in their special day. Without them, they said, it wouldn't have been

  • Prince William steals the show as he makes special appearance at the Baftas

    List of Bafta winners. With so many stars gathering at London's Royal Opera House, fans lining the red carpet at the Baftas were spoilt for choice as a who's who of famous faces made their arrival. But it was not a leading lady or indeed a silver screen hunk who received the biggest cheer on the night – that honour went to none other than Prince William. The down-to-earth royal ignored the cold conditions to have his photo taken with his many female admirers as he made his debut at the annual awards event. He was in attendance as part of his new

  • Monet at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid

    Through works that include his ethereal London landscapes and the unforgettable representations of his garden at Giverny, where he spent the last forty years of his life, the display - open to the public until May 30th - examines how a lifelong obsession and determination to capture his observations of nature on canvas led Claude Monet to blur pictorial representation and brought him to the threshold of abstraction. The exhibition goes still further, and delves into the past to show how, in the middle of last century, a younger generation of American and European abstract painters rediscovered Monet's art, recognised
