A Smattering of Stylish Ladies at the Bafta 2018 TV Awards

Posted on May 14, 2018

Kittens, we’ve carefully hand-selected a roster of BritLadies from among the attendees of the TV BAFTAs, based mainly on their discussable outfits or the fact that they’re more well known to judgmental Americans like us. Transparency in blogging, darlings.



Caitriona Balfe in Delpozo

We LOVE this. We realize that it may come off just a little too fungal for some tastes, but we find the colors stunning and the play of the different weights and textures to be well-balanced. It’s not easy to find a semi-sheer floral gown for the red carpet that manages to set itself apart and turn heads at the same time. She is so right for this dress and vice versa.

Claire Foy in Rosetta Getty

Queen, please. If you were being baptized in the next few minutes, we could accept this. Otherwise, the fact that this gown’s only design element is a rope drawstring should have been enough to immediately disqualify it from ever touching your skin.



Jodie Whittaker

Miss Lady Doctor is keeping things sharp. Love the pleated skirt, the color-blocking, and the balance between the no-nonsense top half and the exuberant bottom half. That file-folder clutch is kind of cute, but a little gimmicky for the dress.



Thandie Newton in Richard Quinn

We’re disappointed. She never fails to bring it to the red carpet, but this design is bland, the print is cheap-looking and the fit is too tight in the bust, which is particularly unfathomable and inexcusable in her case.



Vanessa Kirby in Christian Dior

It’s not a bad dress, although the design of the bust is terribly unflattering. It’s just that she should probably shy away from the princessy retro designs and establish her look as one that’s more modern and of the moment. This isn’t quite Princess Margaret drag, but she’d still be better off finding something with a bit of an edge to it. And the dingy color makes it look like she wore it in a smoke-filled room all night.
