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?

    Yeah, we’ve seen this dress before, but she looks very elegant. I prefer this to some of her more bizarre choices recently.

    I think she looks great. The dress is pretty. But, I was expecting something edgier from her

    dated is the first word coming to mind and staying.
    I like the idea of the purple accents. but overall, its just meh.

      Dated immediately sprang to my mind as well.

    I miss the belt and hate the shoes. Otherwise, she looks great.

    I’m missing the belt, otherwise this would’ve been a hit for me.

    I don’t miss that particular belt, though the dress could use one. I really don’t like the hair or the visible lining. Tbh, I thought it was Helen Mirren for a moment there.

    This fells dated, especially the top.

    I miss the belt, and her dark hair.

    • anonymous as always February 18, 2018 at 23:07 #

      this would have worked better if she had her darker hair I think.
