2017 BAFTA LA Britannia Awards Red Carpet Wish List

From London to LA the BAFTA organization hosts several events from the beginning of the year to the end to celebrate British based film. They kinda help kick off the race to the actual BAFTA Awards in February by celebrating some of the stars that are gearing up for awards season bids at the BAFTA LA Britannia Awards on Friday October 27, 2017. In terms of awards season events this look is much more relaxed in terms of its dress code. We usually see the female honorees wear lovely cocktail looks on this red carpet and I have to say that I am really excited about the looks that I have picked for this years honorees to wear.Ava DuVernay has become a civil right and feminist icon and I absolutely adore her. She is being honored at this event with the John Schlesinger Britannia Awards for Excellence in Directing presented by The Great Britain Campaign. Ava has some amazing style and I am really excited to see what she and stylist Jason Bolden (who also dresses Yara Shahidi and Taraji P. Henson) will pull out for the BAFTA LA Britannia Awards red carpet. Ava loves color and print, for this red carpet I want to see her going for bold color with this red Stella McCartney fringe trimmed midi dress. I know that Ava has elegance with an edge that would take this dress and really elevate it. For the most part these fringed Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2017 dresses have fallen flat on the red carpet, but I think that this simpler silhouette would make for this to be a very chic moment on Ava. This look would be punctuated perfectly with a high braided bun, smokey eye, red Edie Parker ‘Jean’ marbled clutch, red lip, a pair of red Jimmy Choo ‘Vanessa’ pumps, and red agate and diamond Annoushka ‘Flamenco’ drop earrings.Claire Foy will be honored with the Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year presented by Burberry. Claire has been up and down with looks that I have liked and looks that I have not this year. She has yet to wow me and I am surprised by that. She has the potential to be a red carpet heavy hitter, but there is always something that puts me off from really loving one of Claire’s looks. I have to say that recently Burberry has suffered in its designs and I honestly really hope that Claire decides not top wear the brand. Instead I decided to go to the recently released lookbook for the Erdem x H&M collection and this gorgeous floral printed gown which honestly still surprises me that it is going to be sold at H&M. When it hits the racks at H&M on November 2, 2017 this dress with retail for just $399 and I think that this would be a great red carpet placement to promote the collection on the back of Claire who has worn Erdem designs for the premiere of The Crown, the Golden Globe Awards, and the Met Gala in the last year. I would finish this look with a pair of exotic pink velvet Aquazzura ‘Forever Marilyn’ pumps to add a splash of color, sleek low bun, smokey eye, nude lip, and a pair of simple and dainty vintage Fred Leighton diamond drop earrings to really ensure that all of the pieces of this look fall perfectly into place.
