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.

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.

Lupita Nyong’o In Cushnie et Ochs, Gucci & Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Black Panther’ New York Promo Tour

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour starts to wind down, Lupita Nyong’o took to the red carpet on three occasions this week.

Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda New York Fashion Week Showcase: After a heavy dose of metallics in Seoul and London, Lupita was back to her colourful best in Cushnie et Ochs. I like the bold hue of her two-piece Pre-Fall 2018 look and the African-inspired styling, but I’m gonna struggle to forgive the length of those trousers.

Emilia Clarke In Dolce & Gabbana – The Centrepoint Awards

Emilia Clarke attended The Centrepoint Awards on Thursday (February 8) in London, England which celebrate the courage shown by homeless young people.

She was a beauty in blooms in a Dolce & Gabbana dress. With such a bold pattern, I was pleased to see the shorter hemline as a maxi silhouette would have likely overwhelmed her.

There is still something preventing the look from coming wholly together for me, and I suspect that it’s the wispy hair. On this occasion, a sleeker style would have served her better.

I am still intrigued to see more from actress and the designer to see just how good of a match they are on the red carpet.

2018 amfAR Gala New York Red Carpet Roundup

The glamour was at a high at the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7) where lovely ladies joined Lucy Hale, Olivia Culpo and Halsey.

Sara Sampaio: The Portuguese beauty had a princess moment in Armani Privé Spring 2006. The glistening tulle was accented with the embellished straps. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that the Chopard jewels were part of the original look as they coordinate so perfectly.

Joan Smalls: Forgoing the glitzy gown, the model donned a Dolce & Gabbana suit with John Hardy jewels. The stark black piping against the muted brocade fabric creates a dynamic display of contrasts, but I wish she saved this ensemble for another event. Against the high octane dresses, it feels a touch out of place.

Coco Rocha: Projecting slinky glamour, the Canadian model showcased the pockets on her Greta Constantine Pre-Fall 2018 dress. There are details aplenty on the gown so I was thankful she lost the coordinating gloves from the lookbook version.

Rose Byrne In Dolce & Gabbana and Erdem – ‘Peter Rabbit’ LA Photocall and Premiere

Rose Byrne had a very rosy outlook while promoting ‘Peter Rabbit’ this weekend in Los Angeles, California, joining Margot Robbie.

Photocall: I love how her Dolce & Gabbana chiffon dress was oozing plenty of garden party appeal, with the romantic impact magnified by the statement yellow, pink, and red roses.

Premiere: On Saturday (February 3), the actress wore her second floral dress for this promo tour, selecting a glorious piece from Erdem’s Spring 2018 collection. With the stylistic references edge towards prim and proper, the punchy floral print and asymmetrical cuts keep things firmly in the modern arena.
