BAFTAs 2018: Why celebrities are wearing all black on the red carpet

Hosted at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the BAFTAs 2018 are following a very strict dress code.

After celebrities from across the globe decided to wear all black at the Golden Globes and even at the Grammy’s, the BAFTAs will see the exact same pattern fall on their red carpet this year.

In a solidarity movement, guests have been requested to wear the same hue in order to support the Time’s Up movement supported by many famous faces.

Taking one of the biggest stands against sexual harassment, a letter has been circulating believed to have been delivered to BAFTA guests from the Time’s Up organisation.

They asked guests to wear all black to “follow suit from our sisters who attended the Golden Globes” as it is a “strong, unifying and simple statement – a physical and visual representation of our solidarity with people across all industries”.

Men attending the BAFTAs are also likely to wear black suits but can also wear a pin to show their support.

Currently, the Time’s Up movement is mainly an American movement but the red carpet choice for London proves a plan will be set in the UK too.

Rochelle Humes, Lydia Bright and Dermott O’Leary were among the first to arrive on the BAFTAs red carpet and all abided by the black dress code.

Dermott can also bee seen proudly supporting his Time’s Up pin as he graced the red carpet with his wife.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are also thought to be attending the BAFTAs, however, it does go against royal against protocol for a royal to wear black for many reasons.
