Many A-listers, including the Princess of Wales and of course Lily James, have chosen a more understated and monochromatic look for the awards season, proving that grandiose or daring fashion choices are not always mandatory.
The actress came fully prepared for the 2023 British Academy Film Awards banquet on Sunday. James looked like a ray of sunshine when she arrived in a white, strapless Tamara Ralph dress that hugged her hips and had an ultra-plunging neckline covered with a pearl and crystal structured web. The back’s large, structural bow, which tapered into a dramatic train, insisted on being seen even though the neckline may have been the dress’s central focus and provided major party in the front energy.
The actress tied her dark hair back into a chic bun, accessorizing with diamond button earrings, a matching white purse – for glam, she opted for a smoky eye, and a deep rouge pout.
In contrast, the 33-year-old actor changed into an old Hollywood glam look for British Vogue’s BAFTAs after-party, giving a nod to the sheer trend in a sleeveless, studded high-neck silver 16Arlington Luna gown with a faux fur pale blue stole to stave off the cold. The celebrity was seen laughing and holding hands with her longtime pal Billie Piper as they attended the celebration.
