Florence Pugh wore custom Nina Ricci at the BAFTAs: orange you glad she did???

Florence Pugh attended last night’s BAFTAs in this custom Nina Ricci “explosion at the tulle factory” dress. Y’all might remember that I dislike orange on the red carpet, but the color is the least of my problems with this look! The color actually suits her, to be honest. I just hate the tulle, I hate that we can see through the bodice and note that she’s wearing a nude bodysuit. And yes, I really dislike the clip-in bangs. A mess, but she’s having fun.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Alaia. Rosie rarely comes out to these big events these days and maybe she’s lost her style mojo, because holy sh-t, this is awful.

Lashana Lynch in a custom Fendi look. Beautiful color but I find the design to be way too conservative. They could have done that sheer overlay on top without the added “turtleneck.”

Ariana DeBose also wore a custom Fendi and… I can’t believe this look was customized, honestly. It would have just been a boring red carpet look from last year’s Oscar winner, but then Ariana was invited to sing a little introductory song at the BAFTAs and it did not go well.

    The designers are all “ why bother?”

    Hideous clothes.

  3. Rosa says:

    All these ladies look great.

    I’m not into bangs, but it’s a nice addition to match flo’s dress.

    • SarahCS says:

      My first thought when I saw pics of her was that I like her hair. Possibly as an alternative to the wet-look she keeps doing.

      From a distance I love the orange dress, it’s fun. It may not bear up to close scrutiny but from further out I’m on board.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I’m so happy she’s FINALLY done something other than the wet hair look! She was in a rut with the slicked back style for what felt like years.

    • Soapboxpudding says:

      Agree. The baby bangs and fanned hair really complement the look, which IMO is the best she’s rocked in a long while. Not a fan of the slicked back wet style.

      • Lux says:

        I agree. It’s a “lewk” and she served it. Hard to get a feel of the vibes at the BAFTAS, but Flo’s presentation is Met Gala-worthy.

    • Fabiola says:

      I like Florence’s dress. It’s different and compliments her style. It reminds me of my peaches and cream Barbie. Ariana’s performance was awful. She’s out of breath and looks like an amateur. Was she sick?

  5. Carrot says:

    Sexy melon naked perfection! Awesome hair!

  6. SarahCS says:

    I learnt the term ‘vagina drapes’ on this site some years ago and while drapes doesn’t quite fit whatever is going on with Rosie H-W it’s in that thematic area.

    Not an theme I would recommend for clothing.

    • Genevieve says:

      I was thinking it made me think of that whole “vagina dentata” thing. Maybe it’s just a really pointed (ha) “single and loving it” message, lol.

  7. CourtneyB says:

    I’ll go with Lashana’s elegant if conservative gown rather than Rosie’s and Ariana’s tacky messes.

  8. FHMom says:

    I actually don’t hate Florence’s dress, but the headband. Why? The others are just awful.

  9. Kate says:

    Florence looks ridiculous.

  10. HeyKay says:

    Orange bath loofah vibes.
    Rosie has glittery undies highlighted. Probable a bodysuit, still looks awful.
    The pale blue gown is a good color but it looks very old style. Less floaty material maybe.
    The bottom photo looks like a bodysuit with the mesh onion grocery bag pulled over it.
    None of these are a good look.

  11. Miranda says:

    Rosie looks like she’s being devoured by some sort of goth Audrey II.

  12. Kirsten says:

    I love Florence’s dress. She always looks great in these giant tulle gowns.

  13. MsIam says:

    I like the color of Florence’s dress and even the crazy ruffles. But I wish the skirt wasn’t sheer like that. The other “dresses” are just yikey-yikes!

  14. Alarmjaguar says:

    I would have liked Florence’s a lot more if the nether regions weren’t so visible. Everything else about the look is amazing. I have this sheer look over underwear that most of them have going. I thought its 15 seconds were up a long time ago

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I too loved Florence’s dress but you are right as her nether regions are visible, which ruined it for me.

      But she has the best look out of everyone here. FP looks like she is loving her look too which is what you want and she wore it like the badass she is!!

  15. Thinking says:

    Is Florence Pugh’s dress supposed to be see through? The middle section of her dress looks odd to me.

  16. AB says:

    I actually like Rosie’s dress. I’m liking Alaia’s vibe these days, Anne Hathaway wore one recently that was similar. Everything else here is blah and I’m tired of the nude bodysuits 😩

  17. Jm says:

    Rosie looks amazing without the overinflated lips she kept trying to say were natural. Wow!

  18. Nicki says:

    Florence looks fabulous. The color is amazing on her and the dress is exuberant and witty and fun. Plus she looks like she’s having a great time. Love her.

  19. AnneL says:

    Ariana’s performance was fine, but it was the wrong vibe for the BAFTAs. And the expressions on some faces told us that. Something a little more staid maybe, idk. Jamie Lee Curtis looked game though.’

    I like Ariana and she’s crazy talented so I wish she could have gotten a better reception.

    Oh, and the dresses are all misses for me. I do like the big tulle look on Florence but with the color and her hair the whole look is a little cartoonish

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I felt bad for Ariana as she is extremely talented but she did flop it. Though I love that she pointed out JLC because she is such an incredible woman!! I have loved JLC since the first time I saw her in the theater!!

      • Isabella says:

        I can’t really see what she did wrong. She had to sing a stupid song and she did it with a smile. You’d think that actors of all people would understand. She didn’t mock any of them.

  20. Nicegirl says:

    Love 💕 Flo’s unbothered demeanor tambien 🔥

  21. Isa says:

    Someone compared the look to a goldfish and it’s spot on and I love it.

  22. Aly says:

    Florence couldn’t pull off that Audrey Hepburn bangs/eyebrow. Almost all her looks are underwhelming. I wish she would change her overrated stylist. I’m tired of saying “Go girl! Give us nothing!” Lol

  23. Emily_C says:

    She looks like she’s wearing a dish scrubber. I regularly hate Pugh’s clothes — like, actually hate, not just dislike them or find them not to my taste. I can’t think of anything she’s worn on a red carpet that I didn’t find offensively hideous. This thing is awful.

    These outfits are all bad. The only one that could be rescued with a couple changes is Lashana Lynch’s. The other three are bad in conception and should be scrapped entirely.

  24. Mothra says:

    I wasn’t expecting to like it but I did, and her hair and makeup are on point, her face is flawless.

  25. KB says:

    It’s cute! I love her. It kinda reminds me of that doll from Rugrats, though.
