Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

I was most looking forward to seeing Lupita Nyong’o at the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18), following her hot streak from her ‘Black Panther’ promo tour, and she didn’t let me down.

Many of you are bored with the standard Elie Saab Couture gown decked out in feathers and sequins, so this ‘Game of Thrones-esqe’ medieval gown should come as a refreshing change.

I had always pictured this look for Gal Gadot, as the look screams ‘warrior queen’, but the tougher side to the classic Elie Saab woman translates beautiful on Lupita, as no one does regal elegance quite like she does.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Kate Mara left us well and truly baffled by her red carpet choice for the pre-party, so I’m delighted to see her redeem herself for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

Lining the bodice with the same hue as the skirt to ensure the look felt more cohesive was the right thing to do for this Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown.

One could say that this is the true definition of “doing a 180”, as her gold jewels and Dior clutch perfectly complemented the gown enhancing the richness of it all.

If I wanted to find something to nitpick, I would say that I wish her hair had a bit more life to it. A chignon or a updo would’ve been preferred.

Allison Janney In Bibhu Mohapatra – 2018 BAFTAs

Allison Janney joined her ‘I, Tonya’ co-star Margot Robbie, on the red carpet for the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

Much like her with her Mario Dice Golden Globe Awards gown, Allison opted to keep things interesting with a unique twist on the black dress code.

This Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2018 gown is not an easy look to pull off.

I didn’t love it at first, but the unique construction quickly grew on me.

We’ve already had a black velvet moment, so I was ready for one that was thinking outside the box.

Messika earrings completed her tricky look.

Isabelle Huppert In Armani Privé – 2018 BAFTAs

Isabelle Huppert oozed glamour at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England. She joined Andrea RiseboroughNatalie Dormer and Margot Robbie.

Looking every inch a screen siren, she wore an all-black Armani Privé Fall 2017 Couture ensemble.

It was a decadent combination with the sequins and feathers, but the French actress carried it off with a graceful elegance.

On a different person, it could have been too much, but on her it is supremely chic.

The red lipstick and retro waves were the perfect finishing touches.

Andrea Riseborough In Elie Saab Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Andrea Riseborough made quite the entrance at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, joining Natalie Dormer, Margot Robbie and Naomie Harris.

The actress, who is presenting this evening, went back to the archives for a dress that supported the Time’s Up movement. She was outfitted in an Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture gown.

The designer is known for his highly embellished, ethereal gowns, but this one had a moodier sentiment from the satin skirt and the dark colour palette.

The sheer top being accented with purple and ivory embroidery had a romantic mystique that was balanced by the drama of the sweeping skirt.

It’s regal yet seductive, so the only thing throwing me off slightly is the piece-y, wet-look hair.

Did you miss the belt?

Natalie Dormer In Alberta Ferretti – 2018 BAFTAs

Following the pre-party, Natalie Dormer graced the 2018 BAFTAs in London this evening (February 18).

You’ll be surprised to learn that supplying so many black dresses for events like this and the Golden Globes is no mean feat, so Natalie turned to Alberta Ferretti to create a gown especially for the occasion.

The design is fairly simple, so I love how the look is elevated with a sheer chiffon train for a dramatic and timelessly glamorous finish.

I’m going back and forth on the tasseled earrings.

Should she have lost the earrings or worn her hair up?

Margot Robbie In Givenchy Couture – 2018 BAFTAs

Margot Robbie exuded dark glamour at the 2018 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 18) in London, England, joining Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James and Greta Gerwig.

After a whimsical turn in Chanel, the ‘I, Tonya’ star showed support for the Time’s Up movement in a Givenchy Spring 2018 Couture gown.

The style had a moody fairy tale quality with the black lace overlay extending from the neck over the fitted top and embellished skirt.

It was a unique take on layering and those who are against sheer skirts will hopefully find favour with this fresh approach.

My only wish is that she had pinned her hair up so we could get a clearer idea of the bow at the back of the neck.

Harry Winston jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch brought more sparkle.
