Yesterday’s Bafta Awards red carpet event was attended by movie stars and royals looking stunning as they arrived at the glittering event wearing amazing gowns. The 72nd British Academy Film Awards honoured the best national and international movies at the Royal Albert Hall in the London.

White, the colour of the Suffragettes, was the hue that several stars and the Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear for the gala event. Chic smokings and pantsuits, as seen on the catwalk of the London Fashion Week, were also the choice of many. Among the beautiful looks and others of somewhat arguable taste, Notorious selected its favourite outfits of the night.

Laetitia Wright, the winner of the Rising Star Award, looked stunning in a Stella McCartney white pant-suit, barely there jewellery and matching silver pumps and bag.

Elegant as usual, Glenn Close looked like the Hollywood diva she is, in a black Alexander McQueen embellished with crystal embroidery

Joane Tucker white gown with a plissé skirt and long sleeves looked fabulous

Cate Blanchet appeared as a brunette, in a Christopher Kane gown with the neckline embellished with statement colourful crystals that we loved, although it was a bit too plunging and unfortunately, we could see a tad more than we’d wished. Natural is beautiful but nature is cruel (the same goes to Lady Gaga in a white Dior dress for the SAG Awards earlier this year)

Margot Robbie, who usually looks perfect, this year chose a Chanel couture gown that someone described as a “frill-necked lizard”, and after reading this comment, I couldn’t shake this image off my head every time I saw the frilled shoulders of the dress!

Among my favourites was Lucy Boynton, the star of Bohemian Rhapsody, who looked wonderful in a Dior dress. By the way, the movie about Queen won Best Movie, Best Sound, Best Editing, and of course, Best Actor with the amazing Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. 

Tracee Ellis Ross, über-chic in a bright green Ralph & Russo Couture suit embellished with a crystal snake around her waist, but what was it with all that hair?

Irina Shayk was hyper-chic in a Burberry smoking, black velvet Burberry sandals with hand-embroidered crystals and minimalist jewellery

And last but not least, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge looked fab in a white one-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown paired with Princess Diana’s pearl earrings.

The period movie The Favorite was the night’s big winner, taking home 7 awards out of 12 nominations; Livia Colman, who played Queen Anne, won Best Actress, Rachel Weisz, Best Supporting Actress, while the film received Best Production Design and won Outstanding British Film.
