Some of the BAFTA ladies stopped by for a pre-awards show party, where they presumably got a shitload of free Lancome products, which is as good a reason as any to put on a borrowed dress and get your picture taken, right?

Anyway, these ladies didn’t skimp on the looks, to their credit. Let’s judge them.

Honestly, we don’t like anything about it, but doesn’t Miss Cate deserve all the Lancome in the world for putting on an ugly leather Chanel dress? She does.

The overall feel is a bit retro, which would be fine except the contrasting prints and textures, along with the focus-pulling shoes, are a bit much for this one look to handle when paired with a classic ’50s silhouette. It all feels a bit overdone.

She still fits into her First Holy Communion dress, ladies and gentlemen.

Hmmmm.

We’re not feeling the sheer hose AT ALL, especially when they’re paired with contrasting open-toed shoes. The dress comes right up to the line of being almost chic, but we find ourselves distracted by how lumpy and shapeless it looks. Someone really tried to pull something together here, but it’s not working for us.
