Kate Middleton Stuns in Forest Green at BAFTA, Receives Criticism

The British version of the Academy Awards, the Britsh Academy Film and Television Awards, went down this weekend at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall and Duchess of Cambridge Catherine attended.

The former Kate Middleton dressed her bump in a forest green gown by Brit designer Jenny Packham. The empire waistline dress featured a black sash over her belly perhaps as a nod to the fact that all the women attending the event were asked to wear black in solidarity for the Time’s Up and #MeToo Movement.

The dress also featured deep v-neckline on the front and a full, flowing skirt.

She actually got some flak for doing so and not donning all black. Defenders of Kate point to the fact that the Royal Family is not supposed to make a political stance but some would rebut that she already is an advocate for a number of women rights’ causes and thus dressing in solidarity would not be unlike her previous activity.

We thought she looked radiant! Her skin glowed. Her ringlets were shiny and bouncy. Overall, it was a great look for the Duchess. Her husband Prince William is currently the president of BAFTA and has been since 2010. He spoke out about the recent sexual harassment claims, allegations and controversy.

Mom-to-be Keira Knightley looked gorgeous while attending the EE British Academy Film Awards at The Royal Opera House on February 8, 2015 in London, England. Knightley was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Imitation Game.

Italian designer Giambattista Valli Couture struck big again for outfitting the first-time mom to be in this black and white tea-length ensemble with depth and dimension in intricate floral overlay.

Reese Witherspoon was also up for an award for her role in Wild and wowed in a plunging neckline plum body hugging Stella McCartney dress with a long train. The eye make up looked nice and her loose waves too.

Another past feature Marion Cotillard didn’t attend the award show in London but did head to the tea for nominees in Los Angeles a couple days later on February 10, 2015 in a gorgeous Bottega Veneta halter gown from the Spring 2015 collection. Cotillard was nominated for her role in Two Days, One Night. 

She and Witherspoon both lost out to Julianne Moore who won the award for her role in Still Alice. She looked stunning in Tom Ford. 









Not a mom but I loved Beyond the Lights actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw‘s lilac Prada gown. Such a unique yet classic fit. Nice!

Brilliant!

Go Lancome!
