Last weekend, the 71st edition of the BAFTA Awards, granted by the British Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Television, was held in London.
Once again, attendees dazzled on the red carpet, and many attracted attention for their spectacular looks. Almost all of them strictly followed the dress code previously established by the BAFTA organization, that is, the black colour which is designed to support the Time’s Up movement that strives for equality and the end of sexual harassment in the film industry. Continue reading to see who shone in black!
Angelina was the star of the gala, reminding us that despite the ups and downs in her life recently, she is still one of the best in the world of cinema. Her look by Ralph & Russo in pristine black left her back fully exposed, showing her beautiful tattoo. The single-strapped dress, dropped on her arm, highlighted by a suggestive but delicate neckline, was topped off with large Graff earrings and a simple bow.
The Duchess of Cambridge accompanied her husband, Prince William, jury of the prestigious gala. But the controversy came from her dress. The Royal Family is forbidden to position itself in political affairs and the Duchess of Cambridge is not normally one to buck the trend. However, her olive green dress by Jenny Packham did include a thin black belt... Is this be a nod to the movement that reigned at the BAFTAs?
She is one of the stars of the moment for her performance in I, Tonya as a leading actress, which has earned her numerous positive reviews and the BAFTA nomination for Best Actress (also an Oscar in the same category).
While we wait for what happens at the gala on March 4 (Frances McDormand took the BAFTA), last night we loved her black dress by Givenchy, with details on the skirt and a tulle that starts from the neck and reached the toes. The dress is feminine through the tulle and leaves the shoulders exposed. She kept her hair simple, giving her a natural but powerful look for the event.
She is a regular at awards galas and although she is only 23 years old, she has already been nominated for three Oscars (along with her BAFTA nomination for Best Actress). Her Chanel dress, with vinyl, transparency and feathers swirled on the same beautiful surface. It is a complex black, with some brightness and certain blue tones, but perfect for a woman as stylish as her.
The talented actress did not disappoint and once again wore a Dior dress for the BAFTAS. With a square neckline that brought enough elegance to the set, the actress slightly broke the rule of black with a white shawl that provided a touch of spark.
Also with a sweetheart neckline, Julia Roberts’ niece wore a sophisticated Schiaparelli Haute Couture dress with a neckline that plays with sensuality along with a classic cut which made an interesting contrast. To round off the look, she carried a golden mesh clutch and matching earrings that cascade down.
The Kenyan actress usually opts for white, blues and oranges to walk on red carpets. But this time it was time to support the #Timesup cause, and the star has continued to shine in spite of everything. She did not need a striking colour, but the natural charm of an Elie Saab Haute Couture dress with crossed straps.
A woman like Salma always stands out, even if she’s not always the best dressed. On this occasion, she showed of the work of Gucci with a figure hugging dress with bulging sleeves. Embroidered with flowers, the Mexican actress once again demonstrated her great seductive power.
The BAFTA winner for Best Supporting Actress was one of the most daring artists on the red carpet. She participated in the Time’s Up movement with a black Bibhu Mohapatra satin ensemble, but this one bucked the trend with some daring golden sleeves that were tied at the neck.
The 2012 Oscar winner and BAFTA nominee for Best Supporting Actress for The Shape of the Water wore a black Sachin & Babi dress with sequins, two tulle sleeves to the elbows and Chopard jewellery.
She’s set to be one of the great names of the future in cinema, and she’s already been nominated for Best Director at the Oscars and for Best Screenplay at the Hollywood Awards and at the recent BAFTAs. Last weekend she wore Jonathan Cohen embroidered in rhinestones with floral shapes.
With the exception of some attendees, all those involved knew how to add personality to their ‘looks’ without forgetting the strict and necessary black label imposed by the BAFTA organization for the Time’s Up movement. Which one do you prefer?
