The thing about Felicity Jones’ promo tour for me was that there were plenty of big gowns but a failure to excite. She had good moments but, like many this year, they were pretty forgettable as no one picked up Lupita Nyong’o’s baton from last year.
My favourite by far was her Dior Couture gown at the Golden Globe Awards, followed by the BAFTAs.
Her nearly-there looks included the overworked McQueen Oscars gown, the overlined Valentino at the Producers Guild Awards and the underwhelming Balenciaga SAG Awards gown, with the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards my least favourite of the season.
Simple and chic worked well for Felicity when she donned Saint Laurent at the Vanity Fair Party and Erdem for the Directors Guild Excellence In Production Design Awards.
