Once again, Esquire teamed up with Bafta and EE to celebrate the Bafta Rising Star awards at the Savoy. As Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba demonstrate (above) it was quite the evening.
The Beaufort Bar was full to the brim with Britain's brightest young things. The Taittinger was flowing, and Idris Elba was manning the decks (he goes by 'Driis' when he's DJing, you know).
Following rousing speeches from the good people of EE, Bafta, and our very own Editor, guests were free to tackle the canapés and champagne, and dance into the night. Bring on the Baftas.
