Julianne Moore in white Armani at the BAFTAs: stunning or plain?

EE British Academy Film Awards 2016 (BAFTAs) - Arrivals
Julianne Moore wasn’t nominated this year at the BAFTAs, but as you probably remember she won best actress last year, for Still Alice, for which she also took home the Oscar. (Sidenote: I can’t believe that was just last year.) I like that she’s still showing up this awards season and looking lovely, even if her fashion can be hit or miss.

Julianne wore this white Armani gown with black detailing including straps with look like they lead to long black pieces of fabric hanging down the back. Just going by our past coverage, we’ve seen Julianne in Armani a couple of times but Armani isn’t one of her go-to designers. This may be a controversial opinion, but I really like this dress. It’s classic with unexpected subtle details and her accessories are killer. Check out those emerald earrings and that incredible statement ring. My only complaint is that bright pink shade of lipstick.

Isla Fisher was also in white, in this Stella McCartney gown which fits her like a glove but still looks cheap somehow. Maybe it’s the unfinished hem or the contrasting satin fabric and the drop of the bust area, but this dress looks like lingerie. That’s a shame because her styling is gorgeous. I keep seeing hair like this and wanting to get extensions because as natural as it looks you know that giant mane is not real.

And here’s Angela Bassett killing it in pink custom Galia Lahav. I could have sworn she was in her late 40s (although she doesn’t look it) but she is 57 years old! The back of this dress was low cut and sexy. I’m also including a photo of the camel coat with sequin flowers she wore over it because it was perfect.

    I thought this was one of Julianne’s best looks ever.

  2. GlimmerBunny says:

    Angela Basset and Julianne More are #grownupgoals for a 20-something like me. God they are (still) gorgeous!

  3. ichsi says:

    Jesus, those earrings… I for one like the pink lipstick. It all works.
    And Angela’s arms are to die for.

    • ISO says:

      Angela’s everything is to die for. She has iconic looks and curves. Thank God for curvy POC in the media spotlight.

  4. CornyBlue says:

    I think everyone looks genuinely lovely. I literally forgot Isla Fischer was a thing. So glad to see her back.

  5. LAK says:

    As you love Viola, I adore Angela Bassett.

  6. D says:

    Isla Fisher looks a little like Rita Hayworth in those photos.

  7. Insomniac says:

    I liked Julianne’s gown until I saw the big ribbon things hanging off the back. They are just begging to get caught in a door somewhere.

  8. meme says:

    Angela Bassett is killing it? She’s unrecognizable and that dress is heinous, especially that mesh stuff on the back. Julianne’s dress is gorgeous and a huge improvement over the ugly Chanel dresses she likes to wear.

    • Kip says:

      I agree, she looks good from the front, but that back mesh part is horrible. And the coat is seriously awful, it doesn’t go at all! Why not black to set off the brightness of the dress!?

    • thecookingpan says:

      So glad I wasn’t the only one who had to double take with Angela. I’ve always thought she is gorgeous with a rocking body but WHAT has she done to her face?

    • yolo says:

      ITA. I had to scroll back up TWICE to look at those pics because it does NOT look like the Angela Bassett I remember…

  9. Tash says:

    Damn, Angela!! Flawless.

  10. lila fowler says:

    She had laryngitis and should have stayed home. Can’t believe Leo kissed her. I will laugh if he gets sick and then looks like ass for his big Oscar win. PS. I hate when sick people come to work and expose others to their illness. Stay home!!

  11. friday says:

    Angela’s face looks strange, no?
    I love her, but am I the only one who think that she’s had too much botox… or a face lift, or something?

  12. Ollie says:

    That’s Angela Bassett???? I thought you accidentally chose the wrong pictures for the text.
    OMG what has she done to her once flawless face?!!!!

  13. I Choose Me says:

    I love what every single lady featured is wearing. Especially Angela Bassett. How fine is that woman?

  14. Sarah01 says:

    Angela was one of the worst looks of the night, her dress looked cheap and tacky. Julianne is beautiful I didn’t realize she doesn’t have a waistline. She looked good not great.

  15. AlmondJoy says:

    Love Julianne’s dress but not necessarily how it fits her 🤔 She looks beautiful though and I’m loving the emerald earrings and she really seems to be glowing 😍

    Angela is everything. She’s looked like this for awhile.. Does no one here follow her on ig?? Her face looks fine to me, she’s just wearing a lot of makeup. She’s always had high cheekbones and strong bone structure. Nothing new. Slaying on women half her age 🙌🏾 And yes, I used the word slay. Even though someone asked last week if we could stop using it 😉

  16. Sugar says:

    Angela Bassett looks freaking fantastic. It’s a shame about that tacky illusion netting, though. It ruins what otherwise would be a home run look. But my goodness her face is incredible!

  17. BooBooLaRue says:

    years ago, at 32 my stylist told me to lose the pink lippy because she said “you look like a lady who lunches from Greenwich, Connecticut” – it hurt at the time because hey I was a young looking 32. . .but she was right. Never more.

  18. Tig says:

    I loved the color of Angela’s dress, esp on her. I think the middle part/straight hair. made her face look a little sharper. Julianne looks great in graphics-the white/black combo esp- but this didn’t look like it fit her well in the bust at all. And we need some jewelry info STAT!!

  19. Anare says:

    I rarely like Julianne Moore’s fashion choices and this is no exception. The gown is fine just not on her. I don’t think white does anything for her and I am not digging the pink lips either. She always seems to “try-hard”. I’m not a Stella McCartney fan at all but I like that white gown on Isla Fisher. Interesting that those two actresses have similar coloring and one looks good in white and the other does not. What did Angela Bassett do to her face?

  20. Kri says:

    Angela B…I love your body of work. Good Lawd! And Juilianne finally nails it.

  21. love scandal says:

    I’m going to be absolutely brutal. Julianne Moore No No No. The dress at the front, where the strap meets the dress looks a tad knife and fork. The dress accentuates the thickening middle.- I did say I would be brutal.- She needs to cover her elderly elbows as well. Makeup is a fail. I do think she is a great actress though.
    Isla looks beautiful, the dress brings out the best of her shape, yet needs at least an emarald on a pendant, in order to make the outfit to really pop.
    Lady in pink dress from the front looks great however the back piece AGAIN looks like when one has elderly skin & the surface of the skin comes away the underlying skin & sags.
    Sorry, sorry, sorry but I cannot be dishonest with my opinions.

    • anna says:

      elderly elbows oh my. Shes only in her 50s. I think its pale skin that make them appear like that. Im only 32 with milk white skin and my elbows look like that

  22. love scandal says:

    Anna, I know, I feel immense guilt being soooo harsh. But I do believe if you are in Hollywood, the first thing you have to have is a genuine friend. One who understands tailoring and colour. You need someone who will put you in the worst light and be absolutely brutal, regarding flaws. So you know what to cover/hide.
    A stylist could be essentially a “double agent” regardless of the dress, they could perhaps be on a commission from the fashion houses that loan the outfits, similarly the jewellery and shoes loaned. Which is why you need an honest friend with a special eye and an honest opinion.
    I know I still feel bad, but it is an extension of “the cabbage in your teeth” scenario. Who’s the friend the one who says nothing out of kindness, mutual embarrassment and social eticate or the one who says quietly to you “you got a bit of cabbage there.”
    Here’s my admission I am 37 — only just — I too have elderly elbows. Lol. I have a classic Irish blue, grey, transparent complexion, but you got either cover them or opt for an elbow lift. Lol. If you are in Hollywood of course. Still feel a bit bad though. What a meanie I am.

    Angela is still rockin’ those Tina Turner biceps 20 years later but I’m marveling at those cakes! I need to up my squats!
