Anya Taylor Joy wore Schiaparelli to the BAFTAs: it’s giving Baby Yoda?

Here are more photos from the BAFTAs, these are some of the fashion girls, in no particular order. Anya Taylor Joy came out in this Schiaparelli look which… for some reason, I was like “Baby Yoda.” It feels very Star Wars, right?? It definitely feels inspired by Baby Yoda and no, I will not be taking further questions. Considering how bonkers Schiaparelli designs usually are, I think we should be grateful that Anya didn’t turn up with a fake otter pelt on her head.

Another big look was Jodie Turner-Smith in this custom Gucci. I appreciate the fact that Jodie never phones it in and that she likes to go big and bold. Is this what I would have chosen for her? Not really, although I like the color a lot and I love the jewels, maybe not all together. The feathers are killing me though.

Angela Bassett in Pamella Roland. I’ve gone back and forth on this like five times. When I first saw it, I disliked it, but it’s grown on me. I imagine it’s a dress which “moves” well, especially with those sleeves, and maybe Angela thought she was going to win (Supporting Actress went to Kerry Condon).

Nicola Coughlan in Valentino. I love Nicola and I think she’s so beautiful, and I kind of hate that every designer feels the need to cover her up like a pilgrim. Maybe that’s what she wants, but I’m kind of tired of this conservative silhouette on her.

    If I were Jodie’s stylist, I would’ve held back on the sparkly freckles, but overall she looks fantastic.

    Anya’s cape shawl thing looks like a lot of work and the dress doesn’t need it.

  2. HeyKay says:

    I knew CB would post ATJ — what a horrible creation this is.
    Paid to wear it or Attention seeking desperation?

    That large pile of beige velvet upholstery fabric is horrible.
    So ugly it is guaranteed to get her PR.

    The purple Gucci on JTS is giving me mad Liberace vibes in the best way possible. I love the makeup too! The whole look is a win in my book.

  4. Stacy Dresden says:

    Love them all frankly but Angela Bassett is my fave

  5. TwinFalls says:

    Oh, Nicola’s dress looks like a tissue cozy. Not good.

    ATJ is bringing strong Star Wars vibes. Less Baby Yoda and more droid Princess hiding out in Tatooine?

    Love the choker necklace that Jodie is wearing.

  6. MsIam says:

    Angela and Jodie for the win imo. But I would have skipped the big choker on Jodie. I like Angela’s cute little flower bag, lol.

  7. Kellyjellybellybeans says:

    ATJ looks like a fancy Twinkie.

  8. Jm says:

    It looks like a whole duvet on her head 🤔. Do you think it’s heavy? My neck hurts just looking at it. I don’t love Angela’s matchy prom shoes but I love the bejeweled flower purse. And I agree that white dress is too conservative. A wrapped v neck would have made it AMAZING

    I’m getting Lady Gaga’s younger sister + “What I wore to the audition for the reboot of Barbarella that unfortunately Sidney Sweeney won instead of me because she has a nicer rack.” But there is a definite Baby Yoda vibe as well…

    Also, why wasn’t ATJ part of this year’s Young Hollywood Vanity Fair issue? I’m surprised, but maybe she was on it in a previous year and I didn’t see it…

    I’m kind of disappointed in all the fashions from Bafta.

    Eddie Redmayne in his no shirt tux/jumpsuit look was just not working on him.
    But the gown his wife is wearing is the best look of the night, IMO.

    Is Colin F. not allowed to smile on the red carpet at all these days?
    He looks so stern and unhappy. On his way to a dental appt. after?

    No one has anything to say about Richard E. Grant and his huge white opera cape as presenter?
    That was a LOT of cape happening there but Richard seemed thrilled to be hosting so, OK by me.

    I don’t know if Anya got that buccal fat removal thing or if it’s her makeup but her face looks scary to me.

    • laurie says:

      @normades. Yes!! I get so uncomfortable looking at her. When she’s in a movie her harsh alien-ness takes me out of it. Aka The Menu.

  12. Kate says:

    Anya’s look would look so much better on someone with a darker skin tone. Why does her stylist keeps putting her in colours that wash her out?

  13. AnneL says:

    I actually love the dress Anya is wearing and I love that color too. It’s not a pale flat gold; the fabric has dimension and subtle warmth to it. And the structure of the dress with the row of bows is striking, too.

    The cape is a lot but idk, it’s the red carpet. And she looks confident which helps.

    I like Jodie’s dress on her but the choker wasn’t needed. Let the feathers and the striking silhouette speak for themselves. Nice color on her.

    Nicola’s dress is giving me Alice in Wonderland vibes for some reason.

    The catwalk version of ATJ’s outfit is stunning. The model had lovely dark skin, though, which looked amazing against the beige/brown. I’m wondering if ATJ would have looked better had the outfit been in another colour. Jodie’s would have looked nicer without the collar. Angela is stunning, as usual.

  15. Dee says:

    I’m here for Angela’s purse.

  16. Normandes says:

    If I could mix this up (dress sizes included) I’d put Jodie in Anya’s dress (because she’s the only one who could pull it off), Nicola in Angela’s dress (because the color would look great on her and I also hate how they usually style her), Angela in Jodie’s dress (because she’s a queen and would look amazing in this) and Anya in Nicola’s dress (because she’s always going for fahshun! and it’d be cute to see her in something classic).

  17. Sparkle says:

    How is Anya so gorgeous? I can’t fault her fashion because she is stunning in everything. Jodie usually looks like a goddess, but those freckles kill it for me.

  18. Sass says:

    Lololol some of these designers are giving up for real. Let’s just take an entire bolt of fabric and drape it over Anya’s head. High fashion!

    Fwiw I love Anya

    Anya looks silly. The dress, pose and over processed bleach hair. She looks cheap.
