How Kate Middleton Ruled the Red Carpet at Last Year's BAFTAs

Most nominees and other guests wore black to the awards in support of the Time's Up campaign, following the example set at the Golden Globes in January in the wake of the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.

British royals avoid making overtly political statements or gestures, so there was little surprise when the Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear a dark green dress to the Baftas.

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. From Jennifer Lawrence to Emma Roberts, actresses stepped out wearing lovely black pieces.

There had been much speculation as to whether the Duchess would follow suit, and some questioned her dress choice on the night.


When asked about Kate's outfit, Janney, whose performance in I, Tonya earned her an award for Best Supporting Actress at the ceremony, said she would "never judge anyone's choice".

The Duchess of Cambridge may have ignored the all-black memo but could her black ribbon have been an act of concession?

Still, her decision was met with some criticism on social media from fans who'd hoped she'd use her high-profile platform to make a statement.

Let us know your opinions in the comments (below)! Kate Middleton, however, appeared in an olive green gown. Another similarly said, "Disappointed in #KateMiddleton #DuchessofCambridge not wearing black to the #EEBAFTAs It's not a political thing". "She can wear whatever she wants to wear". "That's it. Nothing more", wrote another Twitter user.
