2018 BAFTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Black gowns dominated the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, but the red carpet was by no means boring with celebrities showing their support for the Time’s Up movement in a wide array of striking looks.

Letitia Wright: Showing a darker side of Gucci, the ‘Black Panther’ actress, who was one of the presenters on the night, looks charming in a belted dress. The bug-like embroidery perks up the black velvet base. Some have remarked how the brands looks sometimes suffer from too many details, but this one has the balance right.

Sally Hawkins: The Best Actress in a Leading Role nominee for ‘The Shape of Water’, shone in a Ralph & Russo gown. This is a more sensual look for her with the slashes in the bodice revealing a coquettish hint of skin. I wish she played into the theme more with romantic wavy hair.

Anya Taylor-Joy: Last year’s Rising Star Award nominee embraced the sexy glamour of Dolce & Gabbana in a black lace dress and golden crown. I can already hear the chants of people wishing the skirt was lined, and I must agree.

EE British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of exciting looks at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party at Kensington Palace on Saturday (February 17) in London, England.

Karen Gillan: The ‘Doctor Who’ actress shimmered in a Temperley London gown. Despite the all-black colour palette, this feels like a few different dresses in one look. It’s too bad that the tulle skirt gives the appearance of weighing down the top part.

Allison Janney: The Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee ditched the gown in favour of an August Getty trench dress. The gray number had a marvelous lengthening effect which showcased her statuesque beauty. It was beautifully cut and as sophisticated as any dress. If I must find fault, I wish the sleeves were shortened to eliminate the bunching. Nine West shoes, a Judith Leiber clutch and Maxior tourmeline earrings added more pizzazz.

Kristin Scott Thomas: Another Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee, the beauty turned heads in a Valentino dress. The dragon-inspired design nods to Chinese New Year and projects a joyful opulence. The style hails from the same Pre-Fall 2018 collection as Greta Gerwig’s gown.

Karen Gillan In Prada – ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Beijing Press Conference

Karen Gillan was at the Beijing press conference for ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ on Thursday (January 4) in China.

Continuing the film’s promo circuit, she started off the new year on a beautifully flowy note in a Prada belted design.

Some may yawn at the creamy colour, but look closely, and you can see the hint of glimmering embellishment throughout that was still on the minimalist side for Prada.

I was supremely enjoying this more subtle variation that drew into focus the light, diaphanous movement of its plisse layers.

A scarlet clutch and matching lipstick, along with loose finger waves through her auburn hair, added an old Hollywood elegance to finish the look.

Karen Gillan In Reem Acra – ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ LA Premiere

Karen Gillan dazzled at the ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ LA premiere on Monday (December 11).

The Scottish actress beamed in a golden Reem Acra gown. The fluid shape allowed the striking fabric and the low halter back to be the focus.

We’re used to her making bold statements on the red carpet, but I can see this minimalist gown going down better than the detailed golden Prada dress she wore at the London premiere.

My only real gripe here is that the lighting at the premiere wasn’t better. The dress’s metallic sheen could not be been fully enjoyed.

Karen Gillan In Prada – ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ London Premiere

Karen Gillan attended the ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ London premiere on Thursday (December 7) in London.

We’re used to seeing Karen making bold fashion forward statements on the red carpet, but on this occasion she went for retro glamour wearing a pink lamé satin gown accented with pleating and a silver necklace from Prada.

It might not be to everyone’s taste, but I found this look to be immediately captivating, from the ladylike silhouette to the light-catching shimmer.

The only thing I would change are the earrings which appear draw focus from the stunning neckline.
