Best Dressed: Oscar And Bafta Style Steals

Where were you for the Oscars and BAFTAs? Glammed up at an Oscar party, or cosy in your PJs in front of the telly?

Whether you were busy watching or just had a quick google, you’ll have spotted mature ladies looking drop-dead-gorgeous, as well as a few talented actors and actresses flying the British flag! With some stunning dresses and some more far-out (rabbit themed) designs, we’ve chosen some of our favourites so you can steal their style.

Gorgeous, traditional pleating mixed with a SS19 colourway makes Laura Harrier’s Louis Vuitton a perfect choice for a regal event. The colour plays off her skin tone perfectly, but don’t be afraid if your tone is much more pink- there’s a tone of orange for everyone! Whether you love the pleats, pretty colour, peekaboo tie detail or delicate hair jewellery; there’s the perfect high-street match.

Dress- Matches Fashion Self-Portrait Midi Dress, sizes 4-14, was £355, now £106

Skirt- Boden Laurie Skirt, sizes 6-22, was £75, now £37.50-£52.50

Hair clips- ASOS DESIGN Butterfly Hair Clips, £6

Top- Wallis Ivory Layered pleated blouse, sizes 8-18, was £40, now £36

Flying the British flag, Olivia Colman was one of the stand-out winners of the night. Not just for her hilarious speech though, her gorgeous racing green Prada dress complete with a stunning bow evoked elegant style. We love the pretty embellished scarf and high neck dress, and we can’t wait to be donning forest green again!

Scarf- Ted Baker Graceful Long Silk Scarf, £79

Top- Warehouse Rib Long Sleeve Top, sizes 6-18, £26

Dress- Studio 8 Opal Maxi Dress, sizes 14-26, £140

She may have missed out on the BAFTA and the Oscar, but Glenn Close certainly didn’t miss out on show-stopping style. We absolutely adore her gorgeous Alexander McQueen frock, and just had to steal the simple yet elegant style. The v neck gazes the eye perfectly to the gorgeous embellished waist, contouring her frame perfectly. We found two gorgeous dresses with the pretty beaded waist for you.
