Like the Golden Globes last month, the red carpet for the 2018 BAFTAs was almost entirely black threads. The overwhelming support for #TimesUp was an incredible statement, with almost everyone standing with those who had been sexually harassed in the industry and calling for change.
Here are some of the primo gowns and suits worn by celebs on the red carpet.
The Black Panther actor had one of the most killer dresses on the red carpet. Dead over those embellishments and the diamante straps.
Hell yeah to Allison for bringing some semi-batshit Jetsons realness to the BAFTAs. Normally that sleeve-cape scenario would not fly with me but hey, it’s a big awards show and she’s up for a gong, OK? I’m giving her a pass.
It’s just an all-over plain suit and look, that jacket could do with a bit of tailoring but props to Orly for the support.
Sometimes I feel like I’m a constant Emma Roberts apologist. Remember when she wore a fake fringe to the Critic Choice Awards? I was into it. I’m into everything she wears tbh, and this dress is really appealing to my penchant for 80s power shoulders.
Ugh look it’s not my favourite look on Jen. I just think if you’re going to do prom dress, you gotta give those 80s/90s vibes to an extreme level otherwise it looks a bit blah. The shoulders are cute here but that neckline is giving me the heebies.
She can do no wrong. How? Surely someone out there has a pic of Margot looking shit. Someone? Anyone?
Angelina always seems to wear the same thing on red carpets but it always WORKS. Like don’t you think she always looks the same? But you’re always like DAMN GIRL? Yeah.
KATE MIDDLETON AND PRINCE WILLIAM
Don’t come for me for including Kate’s green dress in the BAFTAs #TimesUp wrap. We’ve all decided Kate was throwing a subtle, royal-friendly nod to the movement via the black sash and muted shade. Also I know it’s stupid but HOW CUTE IS THE BABY BUMP. I’m such an unashamed royal baby fan.
Here’s another human being who NEVER LOOKS SHIT. Can you just look shit one fucking time, Lupita? I’d really appreciate it, especially since I didn’t do my hair this morning and my fringe is sticking up on one side. It’s really upsetting me seeing you look so excellent. It’s frankly, rude.
JAMIE BELL AND KATE MARA
Swear to god who even IS Jamie Bell these days. Has he had a face transplant? I don’t know who that is. And I don’t mean that in a mean way – I literally am saying he looks like an entirely different person. He also looks like he gives zero fucks (do your other button up, man) but great foil for Kate’s unbelievable dress. This is probably my favourite of the night.
I’m extremely proud of myself because, for the first time this awards season, I spelled Saoirse’s name correctly without checking the Getty Images caption. I’m A MACHINE. On another note, this dress is fab.
If you say “who the fuck is this” I’ll come murder you, I swear. Do you not watch Outlander? Oh you sweet pleb. Get up from your desk, walk out the door, and don’t come back to the office until you’ve binged seasons 1-3.
I feel incredibly uncomfortable with the lady boner I have for Timothee. Is he of age? *Googles* PHEW HE’S 22. This guy is the poster boy for Parisian cool, right? He’s like IDGAF but also look at my velvet suit with racer stripes down the side. Only I can pull this off. Also anyone else feel like those pants look like they’re rip-off, like those 00s Adidas ones? *sweats profusely* I’m sorry, I’ll put myself in Horny Jail.
Everyone else trying to make pants and dress-jacket-thingies work, please leave. Naomie, hello.
CHIWETEL EJIOFOR & FRANCES AATERNIR
Goddamn is this the best couple dressing you’ve ever seen? HI MOM AND DAD.
