Red Carpet: Closing Out the 2018 BAFTA’s

More black for the #TimesUp protest, and while I would miss color and patterns too much, I have to say almost everyone looks good when they stick to basic black.

I love this. She’s been at the top of her game while making the rounds for “Black Panther”. The gold piping makes it interesting and the structural folds are beautifully done.

Lovely and safe. All black is her wheelhouse, so there’s not much to say other than she could have and would have worn this to just about any event.

Fantastic. I absolutely adore this. Complies with dress code? Check. Interesting and fun? Check.

I know I say this a lot, but she’s just the coolest. Normal human beings might have been flummoxed by a dress with a dead Muppet wrapped around the neck, but she could wear this to the supermarket and I’d still be enthralled.

This was shown on the runway with the skirt portion over an opaque black slip. Naomie is always interesting and I think the idea to pair this with black cigarette pants is brilliant. It really allows the beading on the duster to shine.

This is gorgeous. I wonder what year it’s from? My best guess would be the 1960s. What a great and interesting find.

Really beautiful, although in the battle of the Elie’s, I think I prefer Lupita’s.

I was so excited when I saw this picture, because Georgina here wore one of the gowns I had picked out for the Golden Globes! I love being right!

Oh Cait, this sucks. Majorly. I know you have quirky taste, but please don’t let the Olsen twins recruit you into their frumpy bag lady cult.

Sigh. Salma in another Gucci. Shocker. This one’s better than a lot of the others she’s worn, but she always seems to pick these very fussy ensembles that don’t necessarily flatter her. Her husband owns Gucci, but he also owns McQueen, McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, etc, and I wish she’d try something else for a change.

Last time we saw Prince Harry’s aspiring actress ex, she was looking a bit worse for the wear. Very much like someone who just found out that their ex who is a literal Prince got engaged. This is much better though, and I’m rooting for her – the popular story of their breakup is that she gave up the relationship to pursue an acting career. While that doesn’t seem to be working out all that well for her at the moment, hopefully it pays off in the end.

Eh, this is alright. A bit overly fussy.

I think it’s the high/low skirt, but this feels too casual for the event.

Apparently the embellishments are little bees! Fun!

Gemma Arterton in Alberta Ferretti

Very romantic and truly lovely. She looks like she just stepped out of a period piece.

This feels like the dressier, but sloppier, version of Karen’s Vera Wang.

Anya Taylor-Joy in Dolce and Gabbana

Ugh. Hard pass. Dolce and Gabbana is often most successful when toned down a bit. Visible underpants and a gold crown is NOT toned down.

So very pleased to see someone wearing one of my picks for a #TimesUp appropriate dress on the red carpet! Always gratifying, and she looks ethereal and lovely!
