The 2012 British Fashion Awards took place at the Savoy Theater in London last night.

Check out the full list of British Fashion Awards winners.
Model Amber Valletta chose a dramatic red gown for the occasion, and singer Rita Ora went strapless in Vivienne Westwood. Rita made the rounds and said hello to pals like the designer Valentino. Salma Hayek was on hand to celebrate and mingled with Princess Beatrice, while Lily Collins arrived with boyfriend Jamie Campbell Bower. It was the couple's first official appearance after they were linked over the Summer while filming The Mortal Instruments.
Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower held hands during an afternoon out in Toronto yesterday. The duo stopped for coffee and shared a few laughs while sipping on their drinks. Lily and Jamie are in Canada to work on their movie, The Mortal Instruments. It looks like Lily and Jamie are getting close after both recently becoming single. Lily reportedly split from Zac Efron while Jamie and Bonnie Wright called off their engagement just last month. The new couple have each other and work to keep themselves busy, though. In addition to his latest project, Jamie will soon get started promoting the final installment of Twilight before it hits theaters in November. Lily, meanwhile, can be seen on the small screen after Mirror, Mirror was released on DVD.
Rhys Ifans and Jamie Campbell Bower have a unique partnership in the upcoming film Anonymous; the actors portray the older and younger versions of the same character. We sat down with the duo during the Toronto Film Festival, where the movie enjoyed a standing ovation at its premiere, to talk about their working relationship and what's ahead for each of them. Rhys joked about his role as a reptilian villain in next Summer's highly anticipated The Amazing Spider-Man, while Jamie reflected on both the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises coming to a close. Watch our interview with Rhys and Jamie and catch Anonymous when it hits theaters this Friday!
The cast of Anonymous stepped out last night in Toronto for the debut of the Roland Emmerich-helmed film, which hits theaters on Oct. 28. Rhys Ifans, Jamie Campbell Bower, and Xavier Samuel were on hand, along with their costars Joely Richardson and Rafe Spall, for the world premiere. The period piece explores the story of Shakespeare and questions whether the man from Stratford Upon Avon was the true author of some of the world's most beloved plays and poems. The movie enjoyed a strong reception from the audience last night, and the stars of the film were back to work this a.m. at a press day for the project, where we had the chance to catch up with them. Rhys, who last night admitted to being "vainly moved" by the film, said the strength of the cast made him decide to sign on for the project. Meanwhile, Xavier and Jamie both reminisced with us about their shared experience as part of the Twilight Saga. Xavier said he's most looking forward to seeing the birth scene in Breaking Dawn and also told us a funny story about his brother being mistaken for Jamie during a trip they took to Berlin together. Xavier said his brother had long hair at the time and that the crowd outside their hotel was convinced he was Jamie, so he signed a few autographs and posed for pictures for a laugh. Meanwhile, Xavier went completely unrecognized, and the next day, the paper ran a picture of the brothers with the caption: "Jamie Campbell Bower and friend."
The leading ladies of Sucker Punch were in fighting shape as they walked the red carpet at last night's Los Angeles premiere. While some of the girls went for glamorous retro waves, romantic curly updos, and peachy-pink lips, stars Emily Browning and Jena Malone bucked the trend with a stick-straight bob and dark, moody lipstick, respectively. Whose red-carpet beauty look packed the biggest punch?

They're just a handful of the handsome guys from overseas who are making a big impact stateside. Check out these up-and-coming British actors!
Well, this certainly isn't anything like the musical version of Camelot. Starz has just revealed the trailer for its upcoming spin on the story of Arthur, which is definitely darker than what you may expect. Debuting April 1, the series boasts an impressive lineup of stars led by the Twilight saga's Jamie Campbell Bower as the young king. Also appearing: Joseph Fiennes as Merlin and Eva Green as Arthur's half sister Morgan, who will stop at nothing to claim the throne for herself — even if it includes black magic.
Do I have your interest yet? If not, how's this: young Arthur on a beach, getting hot and heavy with Guinevere (Tamsin Egerton). Yup, there's some sexy time in the midst of all that swordplay, so find out if the series is worth your time after the jump.
