The Hollywood elite crossed the pond to attend the 72nd British Academy Film Awards at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Sunday, February 10 — and they brought their fashion A-game. In their most formal attire, celebs looked as beautiful and fabulous as ever.
The event turned out to be one of the most star-studded award shows of the season. Kate Middleton and Prince William even made an appearance — for the third year in a row — proving it to be a truly distinguished British affair.
Duchess Kate stunned in a white one-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown she accessorized with Jimmy Choo pumps and earrings that Hello reported once belonged to Princess Diana. But she wasn’t the only one to walk in show-stopping style. A-listers looked especially elegant and beautiful at the 2019 BAFTAs while rocking a few trends.
À la the Duchess of Cambridge, we saw lots of floor-length black and white gowns. While some celebs also went monochrome like Glenn Close’s fishtail Alexander McQueen gown and Salma Hayek’s form-fitting Gucci, others added a bit of dimension to their black ensembles. Viola Davis’ onyx velvet gown had a white bow tie neckline and Cate Blanchett’s inky dress included large jewels on the chest.
But stars weren’t only in shades of black and white. Tons added a splash of color to the red carpet like Regina King‘s fuchsia Versace gown and Claire Foy‘s forest green Oscar de la Renta dress.
Another major trend we saw at the BAFTAs? Pantsuits. Lots of actresses rocked a pair of pants in such an elevated way that it made us question why we would ever pass them up for ballgowns. Letitia Wright looked totally chic in her all-white Stella McCartney suit and Irina Shayk was sexily polished in her black Burberry suit. Both looks were clean and classy thanks to the sharp tailoring and sleek fit.
