So, the BAFTAs also took place over the weekend, meaning that the stars were split throughout LA, New York, and London.
There were some great looks at the BAFTAs, such as Jessica Chastain in an absolutely perfect cobalt blue, and Jennifer Lawrence finally getting the better Dior gown.
Speaking of better Dior, Marion Cotillard really got the short end of the stick here. It has the same technical issues as Jennifer Lawrence’s SAGs dress (not discussed here, but at great length elsewhere on the internet, since it looked like it was half falling apart thanks to sheer linings). However, this dress mostly looks like it’s missing a chunk.
I realize it’s probably from the weather being miserable or the timing being awkward, but I feel like her face really says it all here.
The really unfortunate thing is that the sheer bit wrapped all the way around to the back. So she had a missing chunk and then a side pouch. I am side-eyeing Dior for this one.
I can’t really blame her, since she’s pretty much contractually obligated to ONLY wear Dior (or so it seems). I can’t think of an awards season or high fashion moment in the past year or two when she hasn’t been in Dior.
Then we have a Paloma Faith, looking like a particularly elaborate hedge has been carved in her hairdo.
I don’t particularly care for the dress either. It’s too much, and with that much crazy hair, it’s WAY too much. Sometimes it is about balancing hair, makeup and dress decisions, and she’s clearly tried to turn the volume up to 11 on everything. Don’t do that.
Then we have a jumpsuit.
There were several jumpsuits, and I hated all of them without question (because I’m me, and I flipping hate all jumpsuits). But I wasn’t going to blog about any of them until I spotted this one, on whoever a Laura Whitmore is.
Now, not only is this a jumpsuit with big, awkward armpit holes, it’s a jumpsuit with big, awkward armpit holes AND inexplicable shoulder chiffon. I feel like there’s a technical term for that which I can’t remember at the moment, but it’s awful. The big gold bracelets are also not the best choice with this. It’s very Genie of the Armpit Hole Jumpsuit.
There have also been more disasters in the fashion world since I wrote this. Stella McCartney won another award, but since she turned up in something resembling clothes functional people wear (not good, but not solid leopard), I decided it only bore mentioning in terms of “What the hell is wrong with the fashion industry that big players like Elle are giving her awards?”
