Preapre to take your seats and to clap gracefully as we name the best and worst dressed from the BAFTA red carpet last night. Consider it a consolation prize for those who missed out on an award...
Best OTM Choice: Bel Powley in Gucci
If you don’t know Bel Powley, then as the wearers of backwards baseball caps would say, ‘get to know!’ The Royal Night Out actress chose a Gucci rainbow dress and in the process conveyed everything we love about the yearly comeback of spring stripes. PLUS its pleated AND metallic, too, talk about nailing three trends in one! After me now… red and orange and pink and green… I can sing a rainbow, too.
Best Medieval Moment: Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
Alicia Vikander and Louis Vuitton is a match made in heaven, especially when the dress catapults back to Camelot! Doing her best futuristic Maid Marion impression, Alicia in turn also partly embodies her Ex Machina character and it definitely helps when your Robin Hood is Michael Fassbender. It’s not fair, how can one woman have all of the Louis and all of the Fassbender at once? We are just not worthy of your prowess, Alicia.
Best Male In Mode: Idris Elba
Sorry Eddie, but you have been officially knocked off your Best Male In Mode pedestal. You had us at the contrasting satin lapel, Idris.
Best Emulation Of An Emoji: Dakota Johnson In Dior
Another smashing attempt at nailing a very OTM trend, but this time its flamenco. I am literally clapping my castanets in complete approval and doing a couple of one, two steps underneath my desk whilst writing. Lovely pared back beauty, too, with that classic go-to of a red popping lip.
The Queen Of Everything Award: Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen
There are just aren’t enough adjectives to describe how sensational Cate Blanchett ALWAYS looks. We shall christen this look when bird of paradise meets botanic garden, and still Cate comes up smelling of royal roses. Just like the actual Queen I am willing to pay taxes to keep Cate clothed for life. It would be money well spent, clearly.
