Rising star Andrea Riseborough gets in the party spirit ahead of BAFTAs

This weekend Hollywood's brightest stars will light up London, as they descend on the Royal Opera House for the British Academy Film Awards. Taking her place alongside some of the industry's biggest names will be Britain's very own rising talent Andrea Riseborough.

The 31-year-old is riding high as the country's "one-to-watch",  just this week picking up an Evening Standard best actress award for her work on Shadow Dancer.

And with a nomination in Sunday's Rising Star category, she was certainly the belle of the ball when she attended the EE and Esquire BAFTAs pre-party.

Andrea joined a host of famous faces at the bash including Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Noomi Rapace and Emilia Fox.

After opting for a plunging white gown earlier in the week, she embraced her dark side in a Christopher Kane leather dress paired with Jimmy Choo mantra shoes.

Leather was the look of the night too for Caroline Flack. The X Factor presenter is all set to present coverage of the 2013 BAFTAs for E! alongside friend Laura Whitmore, who also attended in a sheer shirt dress.

Inside the party, held at The Savoy Hotel, Andrea had the chance to chat with Tamara Drewe actor Luke Evans, as well as Tudors star Jonathan and Silent Witness' Emila.

As guests mingled at the star-studded, they were treated to a DJ set from the multi-talented Idris Elba.



With Britain's homegrown talent getting in the party spirit, excitement ahead of Sunday's BAFTA Awards is mounting.

And this year look set to be a spectacular affair with heavyweights including George Clooney, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck, Christoph Waltz and Daniel Day-Lewis all scheduled to attend.

The ceremony is being hosted by Stephen Fry.

In her category, Andrea is facing tough competition from Martha Marcy May Marlene actress Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley, Life of Pi protagonist Suraj Sharma, Londoner Juno Temple, who has starred in films including The Dark Knight Rises and The Three Musketeers, and Swedish star Alicia Vikander.
