Exclusive: Inside the BAFTA Awards Red Carpet With Sarah-Jane Crawford

As we've already discussed, the BAFTAs red carpet is no mean feat to prep for and style out on the night. It's cold. It's windy.

There are red carpet dressing tips each of us can take from the tricky dress code requirements, but what actually happens behind the scenes when you're getting ready for such a big do? We were lucky enough to get Sarah-Jane Crawford's exclusive BAFTA Awards diary as she picked up her crystal-studded mic and took over the reins for E! News and their coverage of the major British ceremony. Keep reading to see her timeline come to life…
