Saoirse Ronan in Chanel at the 2018 BAFTAs: gorgeous or unflattering?

The British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) 2018

Saoirse Ronan adhered to the Time’s Up blackout at last night’s BAFTA Awards. She wore this Chanel gown which is very… I don’t know. The top half is so matronly and severe, but the bottom half is a party. It doesn’t look bad or anything, it’s just not what I would have chosen for her. Saoirse lost the Best Actress BAFTA to Frances McDormand, which is all part of Lady Bird’s complete shut-out this awards season. Ugh.

Greta Gerwig in Jonathan Cohen. She looks fine. I still feel sorry for her though. She must be going around thinking, “Seriously, my film is a lovely little gem written and directed by a woman, starring one of the best young actresses in the world, and I keep losing all of these awards to The Film Where A Racist Murderer Says The N-Word A Bunch of Times But Still Gets To Be Humanized.”

Was this Vivienne Westwood dress already in Helena Bonham Carter’s closet? I bet it was. She looks great though – I love HBC in Westwood.

Rachel Weisz’s gown is by The Vampire’s Wife and it’s not good. But she’s standing next to Nicholas Hoult, who is a dreamboat, so it’s fine.

Tessa Thompson wore a Prada gown (which I don’t like) and she brought Marai Larasi as her date. Larasi is the Executive Director of Imkaan, a UK-based advocacy group working on behalf of marginalized European girls and women. Time’s Up! (Also: have you heard the rumor that Tessa is dating Janelle Monae?? Discuss.)

    I wish Saoirse’s didn’t have the sheer area. I’d like it better just solid like the top.

    • dodgy says:

      Same! Ronan’s young enough to wear a short feathered skirt and it comes across as age appropriate. Not mutton dressed as lamb nor too old. But her face can launch a thousand ships, half the time you won’t see what she’s wearing.

    • Veronica says:

      Oh, me too!! At first I didn’t see the sheer fabric and thought she had strings attaching her skirt and shoes!! LOL!!! Then after looking, I thought I would cut that bottom right off!!

  2. LilLil says:

    If the bottom part was a bit longer and without the see trough curtain it would have been amazing.

    Lady Bird was a mediocre movie with a great cast. How it got this much hype I don’t understand.

  3. Welp says:

    Helena BC looks good. She needs to be in more movies

  4. cleveland girl says:

    Rachel Weisz’s gown is horrible…It is nice to see her with Nicholas Hoult though…I wonder if they reminisced about “About a Boy”!

  5. sunnydeereynolds says:

    I love Saoirse but there’s so much going on with that dress that doesn’t go together.

    As I’ve said before, Lady Bird is a good movie with great acting but nothing special nor it deserves a best picture win. It’s no wonder it keeps losing at every major award shows.

  6. Hoping says:

    Hoult looks flawless. I do not hate Rachel’s dress, while I have hated almost every Gerwig’s clothing choice in this period. I think she’s beautiful but she does not wear the shapes and colors which would be great on her. I am intrigued by HBC’s clutch, anyone knows which model is that? Thanks in advance.

    • HadleyB says:

      I still can’t get over how Jlaw was banging him and went on to those much older and unattractive men after — while she is still in her prime.

      When I was in my 20’s I wanted to bang equally hot men lol ..

    • ichsi says:

      Rachel’s dress combines so many things I usually don’t like but on her it strangely works for me.
      Re: the rumours about Tessa: I thought she looked pregnant in some of these shots. Janelle is a marvellous and powerful woman but I doubt she can do that.

  7. Nicole says:

    I’m preparing myself to be enraged by who wins the Oscars. I’m just bracing myself for Hollywood BS.

  8. littlemissnaughty says:

    Oh god. If these two ladies are indeed dating, that would make me so happy. Simply because they’d be a cute couple. But I caught a glimpse at the comments in that link. I can’t deal with humanity on a Monday.

    Now wowed by any of these dresses.

  9. geekychick says:

    I LOVE Rachel Weisz’s (did I write that correctly?) dress!
    And I usually hate sheer, but this dress on Saoirse is perfect just the way it is!

  10. Juliette says:

    Saoirse Ronan needs to fire her stylist

  11. Malibu Stacy says:

    Josefina López has stated that Lady Bird copied her own movie and play called ‘Real Women Have Curves.’ Yet nobody is talking about that. Why? Because it’s coming from a woman of color? That’s why I refuse to see Lady Bird and really don’t understand all of the hype.

  12. bella says:

    I love, love Saoirse’s dress. I bet it looks even better in person/motion!

  13. Siiiigh says:

    Saoirse can wear anything and look gorgeous. I wouldn’t choose this dress for myself, or really for anyone, but I think she looks effing regal. What a gorgeous lady. Definitely crushing on her lately! She’s just magical!
