The BAFTAs took place on Sunday night, and the big winners were The Favourite and Roma. And the outfits. But not the ceremony itself which has been slammed for the poor introduction and more.
You can check out the most stylish men down the page, but all my favourite ladies’ ensembles, and Timothee Chalamet because he puts such an effort into every single red carpet event, are in the slider below.
Yes, above the actual winners. Because while in a few months I’ll have entirely forgotten whether the brilliant Rachel Weisz or the brilliant Emma Stone won Supporting Actress, I will never forget Edith Bowman’s race-through-history dress.
(Though to be fair I like it when they try something different, and it gets them noticed – I bet some of them do it for the “Worst. Dress. Ever!” column inches.)
BAFTA women 2019 (Plus Timothée Chalamet)
Rachel Weisz, who won Best Supporting Actress for The Favourite. She's a year older than me and I can't even cry because of my botox
Viola Davis (nominated for Leading Actress for Widows). I love her in this dress, I just wished she'd accessorised it with Olivia the dog from the movie
Princess Kate showing real Royalty can outshine Hollywood Royalty
The gorgeous Cynthia Erivo (nominated for the EE Rising Star award). She may not have won that, but by matching her hair to her dress she won everything else
Lily Collins. Loved the dress, not keen on the '90s lippy and hair
Margot Robbie (nominated for best Supporting Actress for Mary Queen Of Scots). Like a silver mini emerging from a car wash
Salma Hayek. We would all be the ugly friend if they were besties with Salma
Laura Harrier, stunning in orange and star of BlacKkKlansman which won Adapted Screenplay
Letitia Wright (winner of the BAFTA EE Rising Star award). It really was all wright on the night (listen I don't come up with is stuff. Okay I do)
Lucy Boynton, star of Bohemian Rhapsody. l liked the irony of a camouflage dress on a red carpet
Thelma Schoonmaker, the recipient of the 2019 Bafta Fellowship (love the feathery dress too)
Our Favourite queen, Olivia Colman (Leading Actress for The Favourite)
Glenn Close (nominated for Best Actress for The Wife). We all need a little support over 40.
Timothée Chalamet (nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Beautiful Boy)
Edith Bowman's dress makes history: Tudor history, Regency history, and 20th century biker girl history. (Then again, who remembers what her red carpet counterpart Dermot O'Leary wore?)
The Favourite, Yorgis Lanthimos’s three-way battle between between a queen, a courtier and a servant, has many of us beguiled and besotted (including me). The women are strong and biting; the men over made up fops.
Roma follows the life of Cleo, a live-in housekeeper for a middle class Mexican family – set in the early 1970s, it is a semi-autobiographical account of writer, director and cinematographer Alfonso Cuaron’s own upbringing.
