Kate Middleton made an ethereal arrival on Sunday in London for the 2023 BAFTAs alongside Prince William.
The Princess of Wales wore a white Alexander McQueen pleated one-shoulder gown that featured loose material cascading along her arms, which were covered with black opera gloves. The princess was originally seen wearing the gown to the 2019 BAFTAs, but it incorporated floral appliqué around the shoulder at the time. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton, who created Middleton’s wedding dress in 2011.
Middleton accessorized with a dramatic pair of gold Zara floral-shaped dangle earrings.
She added to the look with a black clutch, which featured gold hardware to match her statement jewelry. She kept her dark brown hair in a sleek style cascading down the back of her gown. Her minimal makeup featured a smoky eye and a nude pink lip.
The princess coordinated with a pair of gold Jimmy Choo pumps. The embellished Celeste heels featured a pointed toe.
Middleton is a supporter of sustainability in fashion, rewearing her dresses. During the 2020 BAFTAs, which was aptly themed “recycle, sustainable or vintage,” Middleton wore another one of her Alexander McQueen dresses.
The British Academy Film Awards honor the year’s best film performances. After six years at London’s Royal Albert Hall, this year, the ceremony was held on Sunday at the Royal Festival Hall and hosted by Oscar-nominated actor Richard E. Grant. British rapper Little Simz was the night’s musical star, as Helen Mirren led a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. “All Quiet on the Western Front” led the nominations with 14 nods, while stars like Ana de Armas, Angela Bassett, and Austin Butler were nominated for this year’s most coveted awards for the first time.
