Awards Night #3 | My Baftas faves

Hey there my lovelies

Welcome back to my Blog!

Last Sunday top event saw Hollywood stars and British talents came together on the Baftas red carpet and it comes as no surprise that the #TimesUp sartorial statement of all black crossed oceans to be present at the award night.  Much like as they did at the Golden Globes, attendees wore their finest all-black gowns to the ceremony in protest of the myriad allegations sweeping through the film and TV industry.

However, just because the colour wheel was off-limits, that didn’t stop celebrity guests from bringing their aesthetic A-game to the annual celebration in an array of bespoke designer gowns and tuxedos.  So from Angelina Jolie’s velvet splendour to Gemma Arterton’s pleated perfection, here are my top best dressed guests at this year’s Baftas.

Up first the person that got the most ‘grief’ was The Duchess of Cambridge who relied on a firm fashion favourite for her red carpet look. I must say that the stunning olive green Jenny Packham gown, may have defied the dress code, but it is a perfect choice both colour wise and style.  In my opinion it is definitely worth of a style recognition.

American actress Emma Roberts wore a plunging eighties neckline, including oversized shoulder pads by designer Schiaparelli. Ms. Roberts wore the dress beautifully channelling a nostalgic Hollywood era.

The British actress Lily James channelled a darker and edgier Cinderella in this S.T.U.N.N.ING. Burberry strapless tulle gown which caused a storm as she walked down the carpet.

Nobody looks more at home sashaying down the red carpet than Angelina Jolie, who probably would have stuck to her trademark all-black aesthetic regardless of the #TimesUp incentive.  None the less, the Hollywood diva stunned in a strapless custom Ralph & Russo velvet sweetheart-neck gown, which she paired with dramatic drop diamond earrings.

Anya Taylor-Joy stayed true to her Gothic aesthetic, the 21-year-old actress brought a dark romance to the red carpet in a sheer lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.  Additionally, in an unexpected grand twist, the actress of The Miniaturist completed her look with a decadent golden crown.

A true Gucci girl to her core, Salma Hayek stunned the red carpet with yet another Alessandro Michele’s design and as his ultimate leading lady in this beautiful floral design, topped off with rosy rhinestones and a black velvet clutch.

Australian beauty’s Margot Robbie step out on the red carpet with her porcelain-perfect skin, that was the perfect offset to her halter-neck Givenchy couture gown.  I loved how gracefully it flowed onto the red carpet in the most flowing pleats ever.

Few women can pull off this brazen pleats and avant-garde neckline Alberta Ferretti gown, but Gemma Arterton manages to do just that with seduction and composion. Final look does not need much else, a simple swish of scarlet lipstick to add that flair for the dramatic.


So there you go guys my faves for the Baftas – did you like any of these or where there others that you fancied more.  Let me know as always you know I love to hear from you guys.

Until next time,
