Kate Middleton defies black dress code at BAFTA

Share

The Duchess of Cambridge stood out at the BAFTAs on Sunday night (Feb. 18), and it wasn't for the usual reasons.

Further accessorizing, the 36-year-old - who is due to give birth to her third child this April - added some extra bling for the evening with a special diamond and platinum piece straight from Queen Elizabeth's person jewelry collection known as The Wedding Bracelet.

The reason was simple.

Kate's choice found a middle way between making a political statement - something the royal family scrupulously avoids - and ignoring the gesture by wearing a bright color.

"My guess on this is that Kate will wear a dress that is black with some coloured/metallic detail", she tweeted. She tied the look together with black flats, a black velvet clutch, and matching emerald jewelry. However, Kensington Palace refused to comment on the meaning of the belt's colour.

The red carpet will be a sea of black as the movement against sexual misconduct takes centre stage at the British Academy Film Awards. The stars graced the red carpet in black, and the same can be expected for the upcoming Oscars ceremony in March. According to The Huffington Post, princess Diana was called princess since the main title of her husband, prince Charles, was also a prince.

In his role as President of BAFTA, William had the honour of presenting this year's BAFTA Fellowship to Blade Runner 2049 producer, Sir Ridley Scott.

Notably, Kate chose not to wear all-black to the event, even though many women chose to do so as a show of support for the #TimesUp movement. Get HELLO! Canada, PEOPLE, Vanity Fair and over 100 more of the world's best magazines for one low monthly price at Texture by Next Issue.
