Viola Davis In Jenny Packham – 2017 BAFTAs

Viola Davis bought her take on colour blocking to the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

The ‘Fences’ star, who is nominated as Best Supporting Actress for the film, looked stunning in this custom Jenny Packham gown. The multi-toned blue stripes clash perfectly, with each other and the red carpet, and the chevrons at the waist really help to accentuate Viola’s curves.

The actress favours this strapless shape – it works well for her – and whereas usually we see her in one block colour, these stripes are a welcome change.

A chic Tyler Ellis clutch and Bvlgari jewels finish off Viola’s look perfectly.

Jessica Brown Findlay In Bottega Veneta – 2017 BAFTAs

Jessica Brown Findlay also attended the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

The English actress stunned in this orange Bottega Veneta spring 2017 gown, that had a slightly Victoria Beckham feel, circa spring 2012. The origami folds and tucks, and the ruching at the waist, draw your eye in and help contour her figure.

Jessica really suits this colour, and the long length makes her look much taller than her five foot four inches.

My only gripe with this look is that I wish she would have kept the black waist belt – it adds more shape, and helps break up the extreme pop of colour this dress offers.

Anya Taylor-Joy In Gucci – 2017 BAFTAs

You can always rely on ‘Split’ actress Anya Taylor-Joy to make a statement on the red carpet, like here, at the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

This Gucci gown will definitely end up on best and worst dressed lists, it’s one of those polarising pieces, but personally… I love it!

The powder blue and coral work perfectly together, and the romantic, pleated layers and rounded sleeves bring a visually brilliant shape to this red carpet. And then you have Gucci’s now signature animal embroidery and delicate beading to the bust and neck line.

There’s always one star to make the ultimate statement, and I’m so glad it was Anya here.

Do you love this look too?

Felicity Jones In Christian Dior – 2017 BAFTAs

Felicity Jones was also in attendance at the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

The actress chose this full gown from the Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2017 collection, and while I love the drama of it, I don’t think the execution is red-carpet worthy.

The sheer top you see on the model doesn’t translate well on a celebrity who wants to cover up, in front of all the paparazzi bulbs. The top of Felicity’s dress looks a little cheap and unfinished, and it looks a touch too long for her too.

I think the fun of this dress is the sheer material, and the polkadot netting you see on the model. And love or loathe the visible Dior pants, I’d prefer to see this on a star who is up for taking risks.

Do you agree or disagree?

Thandie Newton In Osman – 2017 BAFTAs

Thandie Newton bought the glamour to the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

The actress chose this LBD (Long Black Dress) from Osman’s pre-fall 2017 collection, and although it didn’t break any fashion ground, it was subtly chic, what with its deep neck line, flower embroidery and peplum waist.

At first glance something seemed different with Thandie though, and it’s her hair. We usually see her with it either whipped up in an up-do, or slicked back behind her shoulders. Here though, it looks a little unruly and not finished properly.

Her makeup was on point though, with the dark lip and smoky eye.
