Naomie Harris In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Naomie Harris made a long-awaited return to the red carpet this evening (February 18), for the 2018 BAFTA Awards in London.

As you know I’m a huge fan of Naomie’s style, but my immediate thoughts on her Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 two-piece look was, this feels too casual. Beautiful, perfectly in tune with her style, but not quite right for the event.

I also believe that in opting for this look that she should’ve kept the runway loose-fit trousers.

On any other red carpet – that wasn’t a major awards ceremony – I would’ve fell in love with this look – especially at any of the ‘Black Panther’ premieres.

De Beers jewels completed her look.

Greta Gerwig In Jonathan Cohen – 2018 BAFTAs

After a string of striking looks, I was very much looking forward to seeing what Greta Gerwig was going to wear to the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England.

She joined Lily James, Angelina Jolie and Gemma Arterton in showing solidarity with the Time’s Up movement with a black gown.

Like Leslie Bibb, she accented her black Jonathan Cohen Fall 2018 dress with a bit of colour.

The column style has been decorated with oversized floral appliqués which picked up the light with every turn.

The bold detailing brings to mind 1960’s florals, but the darker colours create a moodier effect for a modern finish.

Lily James In Burberry – 2018 BAFTAs

Lily James went for drama at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, joining Emma Roberts, Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton.

The actress, who is on presenting duties this evening, was clad in a voluminous Burberry gown.

The black colour was a tribute to the Time’s Up movement, but it also added a dark sentiment to the princess style.

Sometimes, black dress can lack impact in photographs, but the diagonal layers of organza in her frock caught the light in photos, for a striking effect.

The embellished belt and her statement jewels also helped exhilarate the look.

Angelina Jolie In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Angelina Jolie served up no surprised in her favourite colour: black, for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

The actress looked exquisite wearing a custom Ralph & Russo Couture velvet gown.

If you or I were a designer, this is what we would create for Angelina. It’s simple, yet breath-taking; enhancing her natural beauty in the process.

You may be having a slight case of déjà vu, only because we’ve seen Angelina draped in black velvet on so many occasion.

Think back to the 2012 Oscars, the ‘Maleficent’ Japan premiere and ‘The Tourist’ Berlin premiere.

Her Graff earrings are stunning, but I have a feeling some of you would’ve wished for a repeat of the emerald earrings worn to the 2009 Oscars.

Emma Roberts In Schiaparelli Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Emma Roberts went for a sharp-shouldered statement at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, where she joined Rebecca Ferguson, Saoirse Ronan and Leslie Bibb.

No embellishment was needed on the actress’s black Schiaparelli Fall 2016 Couture dress as the larger-than-life shoulders stole the show.

Against the nipped-in waist and plunging neckline, it has a strong and sensual effect.

A few millimeters more and the exaggerated silhouette could have come across as comical, but the shoulders’ size and shape are spot on.

There is definitely a whimsical element, but it has been tempered by the masterful construction and colour, the latter of which also shows her solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.

The dangling earrings and clutch finished the head-turning look.

Gemma Arterton In Alberta Ferretti Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Gemma Arterton was another beauty in black at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Saoirse Ronan, Rebecca Ferguson and Leslie Bibb.

The actress wore a dark Alberta Ferretti Spring 2018 Couture gown in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.

She frequently wears black dresses on the red carpet and this subdued style demonstrates why.

There’s something captivating about the inky shade against her dark hair and pale complexion.

With the dynamic pleating, there is such wonderful movement in the gown, which shows off her figure in an alluringly elegant manner.

Gina shoes, a Jimmy Choo bag and Ara Vartanian jewels completed the graceful look.

Given the higher neckline and detailing, she could have lost one accessory or two.

Saoirse Ronan In Chanel – 2018 BAFTAs

Saoirse Ronan looked like an ethereal beauty when she stepped out at 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, alongside Leslie Bibb and Rebecca Ferguson.

The ‘Lady Bird’ star, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role, showed her support for the Time’s Up movement in a black Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 dress.

The long-sleeved style was practical given the chillier temperatures, plus, the decorative top created such a contrast against the sheer skirt.

Many have been fatigued with unlined skirts, but as an entire look this feels fresh.

I’m sure there will still be some who will wish to see the skirt removed and the frock worn as a mini, but there is a dark elegance to the longer length. Had it been short, it would have lacked formality required for the event.

Jimmy Choo shoes and bag and Cartier jewels completed the darkly romantic look.
