Natalie Dormer in Sophia Kah at the BAFTAs: fabulous or fussy?

Natalie Dormer

Natalie Dormer attended the BAFTAs last night in theatrical fashion. She knows how to work almost any dress, and this Sophia Kah number is no exception. The dress is lovely on its own with a royal blue top and black lace skirt with a slight train. Sadly, the gloves kind of ruin the effect. They’re fussy, cheap-looking, and distracting. Can we thank Amal Clooney for the resurrected glove trend? Nat’s gloves may have been better in a solid blue instead of lace. I also think her hair would have been magical in sweeping waves. She wore Yoko London jewels.

Nat rocked a color-blocked Roksanda jumpsuit to the pre-BAFTAs nominee party. This is a cool jumpsuit, and not everyone can pull off orange. The asymmetrical slash of color really pops. I’m also including photos of Nat in a swooshy black dress at a fundraising dinner.

Hayley Atwell‘s little black BAFTAs dress fell into the mesh trap so popular with lovely ladies this season. She has a wonderful figure, and the side cutouts intend to provide an optical illusion. This mesh is counterproductive and not flattering, IMO. I’m including a photo of Hayley’s big blue coat and weird patterned pants at a pre-BAFTA event.

Michael Keaton brought bitchy realness to support his Birdman nomination. I so badly want him to win the Oscar, but it’s probably not his year. He looked very handsome though.

Edward Norton, who was nominated for Birdman too, attended with wife Shauna Robertson. I don’t have an ID on her dress, but it looks Elie Saab-ish.

    Keaton looked great and him accepting on behalf of the director was good. I sooo want him to win but think Redmayne although Eddie will have more chances later not sure if Keaton will. I won’t be staying up to watch that’s for sure I don’t care that much. I guess I can watch TTOE on the plane next month.

    Natalie is my woman-crush.

    Natalie reminds me of Jeremy Renner.

      I thought the same thing- the resemblance in those photos is uncanny. Didn’t like the blue bodice- there was some weird piping or something. Haley is lovely, but that is way too much eye makeup for her.

      Sadly, I think Eddie R will win the Oscar-not to say his is an undeserving performance, but really don’t know how many more chances Michael K will get. But pls Eddie- practice your acceptance speech- no one wants to hear about your vomiting( see last night).

    I absolutely adore Hayley Atwell! She deserves much much better than that dress though. Not that I condone kidnapping in any way but she would do well to kidnap the costume designers from “Peggy Carter”. She’s never looked anything less than absolutely stunning on the show.

  5. Hautie says:

    Didn’t Hayley Atwell have her dress rip out, at the awards? Seems like I read that last night. That the dress had ripped out a huge seam. That may explain the odd pants and coat.

    I will be stunned, if Keaton does not take home the Oscar. If there is one thing to keep in mind. As it has been stated many times… old white men are the bulk of the Oscar voting pool. And they tend to vote for a body of work.

    So unless Keaton does something incredibly stupid in the next ten days…

    I absolutely L O V E Natalie’s look, from head to toe. Gawd, that woman has character!

    Also, Edward Norton, yay!

  7. Elly says:

    wow the jumpsuit is great!

  8. Jag says:

    Natalie looks fabulous! And no, let’s not say that Mrs. Clooney started the current glove trend. I wore gloves like that back in the 80’s – usually shorter though – and Madonna is the one who brought back the trend. She started it back in the 80’s, too.

    That netting dress looks horrible.

    Keaton needs the Oscar this year. There’s something about him that doesn’t look well to me and I don’t know that he’ll be around to win another one. Hope I’m wrong because I love him. <3

    I don’t understand why Natalie dormer pulls that face all the time. She always looks like she’s just smelled a rotten fart

    • Sos101 says:

      That’s just her natural face, she’s addressed it in interviews. My sister has a similar resting bitch face and everyone always thinks she is super upset when, in fact, she’s not.

    • G says:

      Yes! I do like her but that pursed up smirk ala Kaley Cuoco Sweeting drives me batty.

  10. Lucy2 says:

    I love Natalie’s dress, simple but dramatic. The gloves are too distracting though.

  11. Kimmy says:

    Natalie Dormer is so freaking hot. I’m obsessed with that jumpsuit.

  12. ican'tsnap says:

    Oh Natalie, NO! That look is so so dated. She’s much cooler than this.

    Hayley Atwell almost always gets is wrong, but I’m bothered less by the fit than how underdressed she is for the BAFTA’s. That is a dress for a late-night talk show appearance.

  13. Deb says:

    Natalie Dormer has that McKayla Maroney smirk going on, but it makes her interesting.

  14. Curious Cole says:

    Natalie is fabulous. I love her self confidence, it lends itself to a great presence. I’m thrilled she’s out more and more.
    The gloves don’t bother me as much as the black darts by her boobs. I’m impressed that her styling is so perfect, she’s still got a half-shaved head!

  15. Becca says:

    Wow! Natalie’s look may be my favourite red carpet look ever.
