BAFTA Awards 2019 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on February 13, 2019


We’ve spent several days knocking around plenty of the individual attendees, but it’s time to put the rest of these folks out of their misery. Said misery being the no-doubt painfully long period of waiting for our loving judgment. Weep no more, celebrities. For we are here. Claws unsheathed.

 

 

Claire Foy in Oscar de la Renta

As two anti-fringe types, we can admit that this looks pretty good on her. A lot of it comes down to the color, since she’s long had problems working with the shades that best suit her. This looks great on her and the weirdly drapey fringed thing barely registers.

 

 

Cynthia Erivo in Vera Wang Bridal

We love when a gal knows how to make an entrance at these things but at the risk of sounding prissy, this is a bit over-the-top for the event.

 

 

Danai Gurira in Thom Browne

We love that it’s unexpected and very high-fashion. It’s not really the kind of look you see on a red carpet like this one and that alone is reason enough to praise it. Having said that, we don’t love the design all that much.

 

 

Eleanor Tomlinson in Ralph & Russo Couture

What a weird dress. Every design element feels totally random.

 

 

Elizabeth Debicki in Armani Privé

Another kind of odd dress. Totally generic without that one element, which is so odd and distracting that you can’t see anything else. No one should wear a dress that causes the eye to go straight to one hip and stay there.

 

 

Laura Harrier in Louis Vuitton

She’s got a real gift for elevating designs that might not look as chic or stylish on others. This color is iffy and the shape makes it seem over-sized, but damn if she’s not working it.

 

 

 

Letitia Wright in Stella McCarthy

Perfection.

 

 

 

Lily Collins in Givenchy Couture

We have never seen royal blue lace and not thought it looked cheap and tacky. That aside, this design is nuts.

 

 

Mary J. Blige in Ralph & Russo Couture

Boy, this really was the night for wearing outfits with one or two overwhelmingly distracting details, wasn’t it?

 

 

Melissa McCarthy in St. John

Minimalism isn’t really her deal and it’s not something we’d encourage if we were asked, but we have to admit, she’s really pulling this one off. We’d question the hair, neckline and shoes as areas that need rethinking, but it’s not at all a bad look for her.

 

 

Michelle Rodriguez in Jenny Packham

No complaints here. That color looks great on her and while it might be a tiny bit overdesigned in parts, it’s sexy and looks effortless.

 

 

Octavia Spencer in Sachin & Babi

Not really feeling the sheer shoulders, but everything else is lovely.

 

 

 

Olivia Colman in Emilia Wickstead

Can’t argue with any of this. Her style is distinctly unfussy.

 

 

Rachel Brosnahan in Gucci

Newp. Absolutely not. The color’s nice but the funeral wreath bow has got to go.

 

 

 

Salma Hayek in Gucci

We really love this. The hair … jewelry(?) takes it somewhere completely unexpected and unique. And the dress is sleek and elegant, two things we don’t get to say about her fashion all that often. Yes, she’s got a big lizard on her shoulder. That only makes it all the more awesome.

 

 

 

Thandie Newton in Valentino

It’s striking, but the bust is too tight on her and we think the skirt sits a little high.

 

 

 

Viola Davis in Armani Privé

She’s making that big white almost-bow work.

 

 

 

Yalitza Aparicio in Alberta Ferretti

Pretty enough, but we don’t think it’s anywhere near the best or most interesting thing she’s worn during awards season.
