I just love awards season, I never, ever get bored of seeing beautiful dresses on beautiful people, and last night, at the BAFTAS, there were some exquisite looks on display, with Cate Blanchett and Saoirse Ronan showing off their best awards season looks so far.
The BAFTAs is a great mixture of Hollywood royalty, up and coming talent, and the cream of British film and television. It makes an eclectic mix and ensures that the fashion is fresh and interesting. So we get Hollywood stars like Cate, Julianne Moore and Dakota Johnson, Brit beauties like Gemma Chan and Laura Bailey, and rising stars like Bel Powley and Saoirse, which, in turn, gives us looks that are different and yet fabulous in their own way.
My personal favourites on the night were Cate Blanchett in a McQueen dress that was a true work of art, and Laura Bailey, who is a style crush who can be kooky and quirky, but, on this occasion, was channeling the style of a young Queen Elizabeth (if anyone can find out who designed that dress I would love to know.) I also love Bel Powley in disco style Gucci. I know some think this is not a dress for the BAFTAs, but Bel is young and pretty, she should look age appropriate and fun – I personally don’t want to see her dressed like Helen Mirren thanks all the same.
Kate Winslet was also looking pretty amazing. I loved this look, slinky black Berardi dress, vampish red lips and beachy waves in her hair. This is sexy Kate, oozing award winning confidence and looking totally in her prime. I absolutely approve.
