Caitriona Balfe In Chanel – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Caitriona Balfe opted for monochromatic separates at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party on Saturday (February 17) at Kensington Palace in London, England alongside Kate MaraNatalie Dormer and Anya Taylor-Joy.

I must say that when I first glanced at the photo, the ‘Outlander’ actress reminded of Bella Hadid when she had a wispy bob.

That’s where the comparisons end as the Irish actress’s Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 outfit is very much in her wheelhouse.

Rather than a skirt, she channeled the sharpness of a tuxedo with a white halter top and black flared pants.

It’s a shame about the creases. I’m willing to overlook those as that is the nature of the fabric, but I wish the trousers had been shortened to the length on the runway so we could have really appreciated that dramatic flare.

Kate Mara In Valentino – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Kate Mara went for short and sweet at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party on Saturday (February 17) in London, England where she joined husband Jamie Bell, Natalie Dormer and Anya Taylor-Joy.

The ‘Megan Leavey’ actress sported a Valentino Spring 2018 dress which had an ethereal, cloud-like appearance on the runway.

Unfortunately, her outfit was rather deflated and it left me feeling disappointed.

The mini silhouette would probably have been a hard sell for the event had it been at full volume, but its sagging shape and disjointed accessories do not help the matter.

The Tyler Ellis Perry clutch further restricts the shape of the dress and the gray shoes feel like an afterthought.

I’m afraid this is not one of her best looks.

Anya Taylor-Joy In Dolce & Gabbana – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Anya Taylor-Joy enchanted at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party on Saturday (February 17) in London, England where she joined Natalie Dormer.

I’m sure that there will be many Madonna comparisons given the flirty nature of her Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 tulle dress.

I was so pleased that the BAFTA presenter added more layers to the skirt and opted for coordinating undergarments, as opposed to the black pants seen on the runway, as it allows the alluring boning on the corset and frothy layers of tulle to be further appreciated.

Of course, I think the ensemble would have been most successful had there not been any visible underwear at all as some might perceive it as a mistake.

She enhanced the whimsical quality of the look with an embellished crown and Malone Souliers ‘Maureen’ shoes.

Natalie Dormer In Sandra Mansour – EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party

Natalie Dormer twinkled at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party at Kensington Palace on Saturday (February 17) in London, England.

The former ‘Game of Thrones’ star was clad in a Sandra Mansour Spring 2018 gown. The style had a delightful ethereal quality from the speckled sheer fabric and ruffled sleeves.

The sweetness was tempered with the sheer elements and neutral colour, the latter of which complemented her complexion and hair.

I’m sure many will be pleased she lined the skirt as it brings emphasis to the frothy neckline now that that are no visible underwear seams.

A Jimmy Choo bag and shoes and ALINKA jewellery finished off the soft look.

Ellie Bamber In Chanel – Dunhill & GQ Pre-BAFTA Filmmakers Dinner And Party

Ellie Bamber joined Lily James for the Dunhill & GQ Pre-BAFTA Filmmakers Dinner and Party on Thursday (February 15) in London.

It’s hard to miss the integration of chic whimsy into this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 design that offers a new look at sheer in the wispy skirt—thankfully worn with the leggings underneath.

I love how it all echoed the label’s classic nostalgia in the textural tweed coupled with embellishment and Chanel accessories whilst simultaneous presenting forward-looking, youthful modernity.

Did you miss the runway’s embellished shoes for a final flourish?

Robert Pattinson In Dior Homme – ‘Damsel’ Berlinale International Film Festival Premiere

Robert Pattinson joined Mia Wasikowska for the ‘Damsel’ Berlinale International Film Festival premiere on Friday (February 16) in Germany.

The actor could have given the runway model a run for his money, so well did he wear this Dior Homme Fall 2018 look.

I love how the suit presented an updated take on double-breasted tailoring.

Plus, with Robert pairing it with a black dress shirt rather than white, the effect was all the more sleekly handsome and modern.

A minor nitpick may come into focus with the tailoring of the trousers, but I would say that the slouch perfectly suits his laid-back style whilst reflecting the more relaxed fit of their original presentation.

Mia Wasikowska In Givenchy & Prada – ‘Damsel’ Berlinale International Film Festival Premiere & Photocall


Mia Wasikowska attended the ‘Damsel’ Berlinale International Film Festival premiere and photocall on Friday (February 16) in Berlin, Germany.

Premiere: The actress generally plays it safe when it comes to fashion—often favouring black—so on the one hand, this Givenchy Pre-Fall 2018 gown didn’t stray too far from her usual M.O. On the other, I applaud the more dramatic tone of the low plunge and diaphanous black skirt—with the back detail also providing a statement flourish. Even when presented in black, a compelling dimensionality to the look remained.
