It seems like the BAFTAs 2016 brought out a lot of gorgeous heavy embroidery, sleek white gowns, as well as statement jewellery. For me, the BAFTAs 2016 red carpet was completely won by Cate Blanchett in this stunning custom Alexander McQueen gown.
I adore Cate Blanchett’s fashion-forward style, she always hits the red carpet with great confidence, and this floral embroidered feathered Alexander McQueen gown really made a statement. Seriously is this gown fashion or art? The embroidery craftsmanship of this dress is exquisite, I would be interested to know how many hours it took to apply all those flowers on the bodice. I also loved that the embroidery fell away at the hip to make it a little different.
Finishing off her incredible look were the most divine Tiffany & Co drop earrings and a cuff bracelet – I love how this look probably didn’t need any accessories – but I love the added sparkle. This is movie star glamour at its very best.
Double BAFTAs nominee Alicia Vikander continued her love affair with Louis Vuitton, this time, the Nicolas Ghesquière designed gown was a leather beauty with silver beaded embellishments. Also, can Alicia ever go wrong with her hair and make-up, I love her stunning side-swept hair, it really showed off her cool drop earrings, and it all worked perfectly with her vampy lipstick.
My third best-dressed has to be Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan who looked beautiful in a custom Burberry black column gown that had hand-embellished sparkling floral detailing on it. If the gown itself was beautiful enough the Irish actress then wore the most stunning coloured diamond Chopard necklace – seriously wow. The young starlet has been killing it this award season, I loved her Michael Kors Collection look at the SAG Awards and her Grecian style Saint Laurent demi-caped gown was beautiful at the Golden Globes.
BAFTAs 2016: Battle of the White
Rounding off my BAFTAs 2016 best-dressed list is the battle of the white – we have Julianne Moore looking elegant in a custom Giorgio Armani, while Isla Fisher is looking all glamorous in Stella McCartney. But which one do you prefer?
It’s tough to decide which one I prefer most, there is something about the added black velvet straps to Julianne Moore’s white silk column gown that loop from the shoulder and drape along the back, but then again I do adore the simple elegance of Isla Fisher’s Stella McCartney form-fitted cady gown, the neckline looks incredible on her, I just wish the length had been altered, it just doesn’t look great puddled around her feet.
