Stars to wear black at United Kingdom film awards: Will Kate join them?

  • The Duchess of Cambridge did not partake in the red carpet blackout

It was first introduced in January at the Golden Globe awards, when actors and actresses were urged to wear black in honour of the Time's Up movement.

Producer Graham Broadbent said the movie about a bereaved mother seeking justice is "the story of a woman taking on the establishment and status quo".

The awards are Britain's equivalent of the Oscars.

While the 2017 British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) were teaming with famous faces and fresh talent, Kate Middleton undoubtably stole the show on the red carpet past year.

Instead, Kate was seen stepping out on the red carpet in a dark green cap-sleeved gown by Jenny Packham, with a black sash around her waist.

One celeb who forewent the black dress code?

Middleton and Prince William, who is the president of BAFTA, will meet with representatives including BAFTA Chief Executive Amanda Berry, and watch the star-studded ceremony from the front row, which takes place at the Royal Albert Hall. And yes, Time's Up is considered political-even given that anti-harassment movements ought to be bipartisan.

In saying that there's definitely an element of support with Kate's dress. "However, both #MeToo and #TimesUp have been accused by some critics as being too politically-charged, which would subject Middleton to criticism of breaking protocol".

A letter published Sunday has been signed by Academy Award victor Emma Thompson, Naomie Harris, Emma Watson, Gemma Arterton and many others.

Backed by more than 190 entertainers, academics and activists, the letter aligns British film stars with the fight against sexual harassment set off by the allegations against US movie producer Harvey Weinstein. As for shoes, while her gown covered her feet, Kate was reportedly wearing Prada's sold out Wavy-Cut heels in black suede.
