After a no-nudity dress code was imposed on Grammy attendees, BAFTA in London and New York Fashion Week seem to have unwillingly followed the lead. Bad weather in London and NY forced stars and models to wear as much as they could to keep warm.
Unlike the American Academy Awards, hosted in sunny Hollywood, BAFTA is staged in cold and gloomy London. The entrance to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden that was hosting Britain’s most prestigious cinema awards was turned into a mess of snow and dirt, as bad weather swept the city.
Movie stars had to wrap themselves in coats and furs to get their gowns safely into the venue. However the outfits at the ceremony proved that dark colors and unrevealing styles can be just as thrilling as those candid gowns worn by movie stars at the Oscars.
The likes of Marion Cotilliard and Jessica Chastain dared to wear bright colors to the ceremony, while most other star actresses, such as Olga Kurilenko, Lily James, Thandie Newton, Anne Hathaway, and Jennifer Garner preferred timeless black for the ceremony.
It proved that red carpet fashion is becoming more conservative and modest, as fashion critics tend to slam the stars for “too much cleavage” or “indecent transparency”.
According to the Sun, actress Anne Hathaway, had to loan Andrea Riseborough her jacket as she turned up in a yellow Vivienne Westwood gown revealing too much of her upper body.
Meanwhile attendees of the NY Fashion Week also had to overcome more weather issues, as the city was hit by snowstorm Nemo, which covered the Northeast US with historic amounts of snow.
The storm has left several hundreds of thousands of people powerless and at least nine people have died.
