All the attendees of the 2018 BAFTAs were encouraged to wear black as a stand against sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the entertainment industry.
The one person who didn’t wear black was Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
Instead she opted to wear a Jenny Packham green dress styled with a black clutch and stunning emerald jewels which felt over-elaborate with this look.
So why didn’t she wear black?
The Duchess, like other members of the royal family, are supposed to remain strictly neutral with respect to any political campaign or movement, and are under pressure not to make political statements. Also, royal family members are also encouraged not to wear black unless they are attending a funeral or Remembrance Day.
You’ll be happy to learn that dark green is a colour that is closely associated with the Suffragettes, who used the colour to represent hope. So why she couldn’t make visual stand in this instant, perhaps she was making a subtle one.
