BAFTAs 2019: Duchess Kate and the Black and White Brigade

There was a ton of black and white on the BAFTAs red carpet last Sunday, including the Duchess of Cambridge who attended with William.

This is a very Hollywood moment for Kate – she usually pulls out all the stops for her annual appearance at the BAFTAs. This custom McQueen creation is lovely and while I usually don’t gravitate towards white on the red carpet (too bridal) this feels so far aesthetically removed from her unforgettable bridal look that it doesn’t invite the comparison.

She also picked some killer jewels for the occasion. She’s wearing the Queen’s diamond bracelet and the late Princess Diana’s pearl and diamond earrings. And I am delighted to report that her Jimmy Choo pumps are fabulously glittery!

Grammys 2019: Black and White on the Red Carpet

I just got back from a week-long work training in Seattle, so I am all discombobulated and exhausted and WAY behind on posts, but I’m going to try and bang these remaining Grammys and BAFTAs posts out before we move into Oscars coverage!

The erstwhile J. Lo garnered a significant bit of controversy before ever walking down the red carpet when she signed on to preform a tribute to Motown because obviously when you think Motown, you think….Jenny from the Block? Yeah. No.

I don’t mind the dress – I actually like it a lot more than her usual over the top, sexy with a capital “S” vibe. But it’s pulling across the front and the hat is just hilariously extra.

BAFTAs 2019: Froofy and Feminine Rules the Red Carpet

All things feminine, froofy, and ruffled dominated the red carpet at the BAFTA’s in London last night. Some to better effect than others.

This is just a whole lot of look from Chanel. Surprisingly, for an OTT Chanel, there are quite a few elements I like here – the body of the dress is beautifully done, and I like the contrast with the royal blue tulle. I would have removed the armpit tulle to streamline this look.

Royals: Meghan Finally Nails It and Kate Wears an Old Favorite

To be honest, I have been completely uninspired to post about the Duchess of Sussex the last few months. Her wardrobe choices have rarely deviated from a lackluster rotation of forgettable black, navy, and beige.

But last week on a visit to Bristol she finally branched out of her comfort zone and knocked it out of the ballpark.

The rest of the SAG Awards red carpet was largely forgettable….

This is a shockingly simple turn from the woman who once arrived on a red carpet in an egg.

No one will convince me this isn’t a sartorial rendering of a vulva.

Red Carpet: The Best Looks from the SAG Awards

The SAG’s were pretty evenly divided between stars that looked great, stars that looks meh, and stars that looked….not great. Let’s take a look at the folks who killed it.

This Givenchy is one of my favorite things Rachel has worn and a high from Clare Waight Keller’s recent collection. I almost wish she’d saved it for the Oscars – it was actually on my shortlist (which has become QUITE the long list) of prospective looks for my Oscars Fantasy Stylist post. Let’s hope Rachel keeps it up for the rest of awards season.
