Darlings, we did our best to keep you abreast of some of the more notable BAFTA Tea party attendees’ red carpet efforts (Billy Porter, Saoirse Ronan, Awkwafina, Cynthia Erivo, Jodie Comer, Laura Dern), but it’s time for us to wrap up our opinions on the red carpet efforts at this weekend’s BAFTA Tea Party (one of the top “see and be seen” events of awards season).
He’s wonderful in 1917 (review in this week’s podcast) and Lorenzo has developed a mild crush, but this accountant’s suit is horribly disappointing.
Greta Gerwig in Thom Browne
We don’t love the shape, but we’d have a lot easier time with it if she just buttoned the jacket.
LOVED this – until we got to the boots. This is a day event and not formal. The dress is fantastic and on point, but the footwear is too casual and lets the look down.
Jared Harris in Oren Kash
Love that he really went for it. And by “went for it,” we mean “borrowed one of RuPaul’s suits.”
Congratulations on your First Holy Communion, Josh. We got you a savings bond.
Julia Butters in Gucci
Absolutely fantastic. It’s glamorous and fashionable in the way she would most likely want, but it’s not precocious or overdone.
Kaitlyn Dever in Simone Rocha
How does someone wear this and this in the same 24 hour period?
Mary Steenburgen in Saloni
The fact that Mary Steenburgen may well win a Best Original Song Oscar isn’t the most shocking part. The most shocking part is how she wound up a songwriter in the first place. It’s a great story and we’re kind of cheering her on (because “Glasgow” is a stunner). Having said that, this dress is … very not good.
Taron Egerton in Brunello Cucinelli
We love a thick boy who wears his suits to show it off (except when you’re Nick Jonas and you come off looking incredibly silly), but we don’t think he’s pulling off the various stripes and that brown does nothing for him
Zoey Deutch in Valentino
A gorgeous dress with a puzzling shoe choice.
