Salma Hayek in Gucci at the BAFTAs: stunning, regal or struggling?

EE British Academy Film Awards (Baftas)

The BAFTAs felt somewhat low-key last night, probably because they fell – yet again – on the same night as the Grammys for all of us Americans. We have to make a choice about what to watch live, and most of us choose the Grammys. Salma Hayek attended the awards show as a presenter, and to represent Mexican filmmaking and Roma specifically. She ended up presenting her friend Alfonso Cuaron with his Best Director BAFTA. Salma wore one of the labels owned by her husband, Gucci, and I actually don’t hate the gown. It’s quite beautiful, really. What I don’t like is the headband and her hair. What awful styling choices for such a pretty gown.

Glenn Close still feels like a sure thing for the Best Actress Oscar, but she lost the BAFTA last night – the Best Actress award went to Olivia Colman, as The Favourite picked up tons of awards. Still, Glenn looked regal in this Alexander McQueen dress.

Here’s Michelle Yeoh in Elie Saab Haute Couture. I’ve enjoyed seeing Michelle at every awards show this year! She looks amazing.

Letitia Wright won the BAFTA Rising Star award. She wore a fantastic Stella McCartney suit!

Rami Malek also wore white, and he picked up the Best Actor award for Bohemian Rhapsody. I still feel like… something might happen in this category at the Oscars.

    I am generally a Selma stan – she is SO beautiful – but what is that hairstyle?

  2. greenmonster says:

    Rami Malek is giving me ‘Arthur’s Fist’ vibes.

    Oh Salma. She is such a gorgeous woman, and has access to the very best of the best- why is it that so often something about her looks just doesn’t quite work? Her head is incredibly beautiful, it should not be hard to flatter it instead of taking away from it.

    (I really, really wish I agreed with you about the Best Actor category, Kaiser. I will be SO THRILLED if your feeling comes good! But sadly I think Malek has it pretty much locked now. MAYBE Christian Bale can pull of some kind of last-minute miracle win, but I’d be feeling a lot more positive about his chances if he’d managed that last night. As it is, I think that race is completely done. *sad sigh*)

    Michelle looks gorgeous!

  5. The Voice says:

    I knew I had seen that headband before… on Gemma Chan. And it works on her.

    Michelle Yeoh looks amazing. I love the colors of her dress. Reminds me of the one she wore in the wedding scene in Crazy Rich Asians. Those tones look beautiful on her. And I love that she always wears a watch!

  6. Mia4s says:

    Michelle Yeoh looks incredible! I love that she’s having a second act, so to speak.

    Ugh; I hope you’re right that Malek could lose. It’s replusive to see the “pay no attention to the alleged child rapist behind the curtain” act rewarded just because people love Freddie Mercury. Gross for a tiny, temporary career boost. Oh well, considering I stopped watching awards shows years ago, I guess I won’t have to care either way. 😁

    • Lala11_7 says:

      It is because I DO adore Freddie Mercury…that I want everything associated with this movie to not win NAN award…

      They got the money…that’s enough….

      Sugar-coating and making PABLUM of one of the most dynamic entertainers that ever graced the planet….NOPE!!!!

    Is it bad that I really want Rami to lose that Oscar? Nothing to do with his performance as I refuse to watch the film. His comments pissed me the eff off.

    • SM says:

      The biggest problem in my view is not Rami, he is too small a fish, but it is the general trend of everyone praising this film and thinking they are in the right since they do not mention that criminal Bryan by name and everything is peaches. This is how nothing changes in the system. And just thinking it was just a year ago everyone collectively in Hollywood jumped on the time to change and time’s up movement train. This year it feels like that never happened.

    I just want to point out that the words “fabulous” and “stella mccartney” were used in the same sentence!

  9. HK9 says:

    Beautiful dress…she should have put the headband around the bun tho…

  10. Kitten says:

    I actually like the headband *dodges tomatos* and her hair and makeup. I just wish the dress was sleeveless or halter instead of the one-armed cave man thing.

    She’s had a lot of really good work done on her face. Combine that with great genes (lucky) and you will have a beautiful woman. She is 52 years old and I think she looks really incredible.

  11. Veronica says:

    I think Salma looks good. That dress fits her like a glove. The headband I can take or leave (it distracts from the jewels at the top of the dress a tad), but it’s fine. I just wish they’d tucked the tendrils of hair in.

    Glenn Close is so stunning, and I will be sorely disappointed if she doesn’t win this year. She’s been turning in great performances for years. (Funny how much drama there was over DiCaprio not winning, but no such histrionics over many, many overlooked women, yeah?)

  12. Dvr says:

    Glenn close looks like hands are grabbing her abdomen from behind

  13. Charfromdarock says:

    I love Letitia’s suit!

    And Glenn looks amazing.

    Selma’s hair is bizarre but also her makeup looks terrible. Who styled her? Gown is beautiful though.
