Suki Prepares For the BAFTAs Without "Ridiculously Good Dancer" Bradley

Feb 15 2014 - 12:07pm

Keira Knightley [1] and her husband, James Righton, got a head start on the BAFTA Awards fun at Harvey Weinstein's annual pre-award-show bash in London on Friday. The good-looking couple weren't the only stylish Brits at the fete, with Bradley Cooper [2]'s girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse, coordinating suits with her friend and fellow supermodel Cara Delevingne, and Catching Fire's Sam Claflin mingling with the crowd alongside his wife, Laura Haddock. Uma Thurman [3] also made a rare appearance at the party, while 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen continued his award-season partying. Notably absent was Bradley Cooper, Suki's boyfriend, but he will likely be making an appearance soon enough, as he is nominated for best actor in a supporting role at Sunday night's BAFTA Awards.

Despite Bradley's absence, he and Suki are still going strong, and the model recently opened up about her relationship with the A-lister. She told Rollercoaster magazine [4] that the two "hit it off immediately" when they met at the 2013 Elle Style Awards nearly one year ago. "We were dancing at the afterparty, and he asked me if I fancied going to a club," She said of their first night together. "We went to Cirque Le Soir in London — and he's a ridiculously good dancer, yes. But I'm a serious dancer, too, so I don't know if I was fully concentrating on that. We make a pretty good duo, though." She added that the two rarely talk about each other in the media simply because it never comes up: "I never get asked about it, because they all think I'm not going to answer them." The two have been getting more public with their romance, with Bradley taking Suki to the State dinner [5] at the White House on Tuesday.
