The stars arrived in all black but still gave us plenty to look at…
While the BAFTA red carpet might have lacked colour, it certainly didn’t want for style. When some of the film industry’s most talented descended on the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday night to honour their best and brightest, they did it in all black. Not only was this a powerful statement and nod to the Time’s Up movement, it was chic as hell.
Aside from Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, who wasn’t able to partake in the night’s unofficial dress code due to royal restrictions, the stars channeled their LBD A-game. From voluminous skirts a la Lily James, who brought the drama in Burberry black tulle, to the intricate detailing on first-time nominee Margot Robbie’s Givenchy gown, attendees found endless ways to add glamour.
We saw style savvy women like Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, and Kate Mara all opt for dresses with gold embroidery and embellishments, from bedazzeled belts to delicate patterns of thread.
Actresses like Allison Janney and Emma Roberts decided on sculptural oversized silhouettes and both looked stunning in strong necklines and shoulder pads. Lest you think we forgot red-carpet queen (and your dream celeb BFF) JLaw, she did Dior proud in a classic old Hollywood look and a gorgeous red lip in what had to be one of our favourite looks of the night.
The 2018 BAFTAs are clearly off to a super stylish start, packed with glamorous gowns, flawless beauty looks and the most handsome men in suits. All that’s left? To see who takes home the top honours once the ceremony begins!
