Salma Hayek in Gucci at the 2018 BAFTAs: stunning & thankfully back to brunette

The 71st British Academy Film Awards 2018 held at the Royal Albert Hall

Thank God Salma Hayek was only wearing a wig! Salma “went blonde” for the pre-BAFTA event at Kensington Palace on Saturday night and she looked so… odd. But she was back to black at the BAFTAs last night and now her face doesn’t look so “worked on.” It’s so weird how a hair change can make someone’s face look so different all of a sudden. Anyway, Salma attended the BAFTAs with her husband Francois, the billionaire. She wore one of the labels he owns, Gucci. I don’t hate this? It’s flattering, it keeps with the red carpet blackout, and it’s still pretty interesting.

Letitia Wright (from Black Panther) also wore a black Gucci, and apparently Gucci is doing a lot with bejeweled bugs these days (Salma wore bejeweled bugs to the pre-BAFTA event). Again, I love the bejeweled bugs. And I love the simplicity of this gown.

Sally Hawkins in Ralph & Russo. I like this? I don’t think of Sally as a fashionista, but she’s been doing well this awards season. This is conservative and yet it’s got an edge to it with the sheer streaks running through the top.

I think very highly of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, both of her talent and her beauty. This Cardinali gown doesn’t really do her justice – it’s too conservative and stately, in my opinion. It’s not really a bad dress, I just wish it was on someone like Helen Mirren.

    Not everyone wants to be half dressed all the time. Covering up isn’t “matronly”, if it’s her choice than it’s a valid one.

  2. Char says:

    Finally Gucci made something that actually fits Salma! It’s very passive-agressive to always dress the owner’s wife in clothes that are bad!!! And she should never go blonde, she’s a beautiful brunette!

  3. Kate says:

    Salma was best dressed, no doubt about that.

  4. Jayna says:

    Salma’s gown is stunning on her. I also love Letitia’s Wright’s gown.

  5. sunnydeereynolds says:

    Gugu is so beautiful! MEH on all the dresses. Nothing special or stands out. All forgettable.

  6. Sullivan says:

    I like Gugu’s dress. She looks regal.

  7. Globug160 says:

    Gugu looks amazing and regal. Nothing wrong with showing LESS skin while being a hot young actress.

  8. JA says:

    Has sally hawkins always looked so frail? Only slightly familiar with her and only seen a couple of her films. Recent pics she looks so small and thin…wondered if its always been that way

  9. MellyMel says:

    Finally Salma looks great! I can never understand how a woman who has access to so much great fashion misses the mark again and again…she looks fantastic here!

  10. Naddie says:

    Gugu is amazing by all means.

  11. Veronica says:

    Selma looks great!! I wonder why I haven’t ever met a billionaire to marry!! :)
    And Letitia Wright looks gorgeous. Love that gown!!

  12. teacakes says:

    I love all the dresses in this post, but especially Salma and Gugu. Those silver lines on Gugu look amazing, very strong and not matronly at all.

  13. bella says:

    I love the two Gucci’s and also Gugu. Actually, all of the ladies look beautiful.

  14. Kimberly Davis says:

    Well, pleasantly surprised. Saw Gucci’s last NYC runway and horrible. MY EYES. Anorexic, androgynous, junkie looking models in a smashup of oversized mismatched TRENDY dreck. Much like Burberry last night. jmHo lol

    Gugu is setting a new standard for beauty and elegance in Hollywood!
