I’m a bit late in the game, so apologies for that, but days have been quite busy lately with birthday dinners and school. But as I always say it’s better later than never, and I really wanted to address the British Film Awards which was held few days ago here in London and was packed with celebrities in nice dresses.
Nice black dresses to be precise (although there were some exceptions) in solidarity of the Time’s Up movement and against sexual harassment now not only in the film industry but addressed as a general problem.
It’s started with the Golden Globes, and quite frankly, it’s good to see it’s still going strong, women at both sides of the Atlantic being united. Even more important in these horrifying times, when unity is more important than ever.
So lets start with Jennifer Lawerence who wore – not surprisingly – Christian Dior Couture and I have to say, this dress is great for her in it’s simplicity and feminine sharpness. I also loved her makeup and earrings, she looked absolutely fantastic.
If there is one thing Alessandro Michele does incredibly well, that’s his gowns (and accessories, but that’s not the point here). Letitia Wright wore this beautiful Gucci velvet dress with golden bee embellishments all over it. What can I say, I love bees. 🙂
Sally Hawkins (one of the women of the moment) attended in this beautiful shimmering wrap over Ralph & Russo dress with sheer bits on the top and sleeves. Again, simple yet stunning.
Ok, this whole look must be my favourite of all, Naomie Harris wearing sheer gold embellished kaftan with black trousers by Zuhair Murad Couture. Such a unique look, isn’t it? I’m in love with all of her pendant necklaces.
Actually my first favourite of the night was Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab, but then I saw Naomie, but love this gown nonetheless, especially when she wore her black framed cat-eye glasses. I read, because she is promoting her new film, Black Panther, she wears matching, warrior like outfits. What a great, effective yet neat marketing for all women and the film itself.
English rose, Gemma Arterton wore this beautifully made simple with a twist (literally), fan like gown by Alberta Ferretti. I, personally, would have lost the necklace and put on a bracelet on her fully bare arm, but that’s really nitpicking cos she looked fabulous nonetheless.
And finally we have Saoirse Ronan in Chanel. I think there is only a handful of women who can really pull off Chanel gowns, but the young actress is on roll and just can not do wrong at the moment. Also, her makeup couldn’t be more beautiful.
Who is your favourite?
