 Kate Middleton And Prince William Radiated Sustainable Elegance On The BAFTAS Red Carpet

The Duchess of Cambridge, never fails to deliver when it comes to her fabulous style. Last night’s 2020 BAFTA Awards was no different; she was a vision in an Alexander McQueen gown she first wore during a visit to Malaysia in 2012. The gold and white gown, embroidered with Hibiscus flowers which is the national flower of Malaysia was paired with shimmering pumps matched with an Anya Hindmarch Marano clutch in gold glitter with a gold-tone frame and logo clasp. Which Made the Duchess look even more like a golden goddess. And to complete the look she wore Van Cleef and Arpels jewellery from the Magic Alhambra Collection, created in 2006. Despite having worn the dress before she has made it new again. Her famous up-do completed the timeless look.

The carpet was honoured by the Duchess and her husband Prince William who is on his tenth year in his postition as President of the Academy. The chic couple looked pristine and elegant throughout the ceremony. Prince William also took part in the dress code by re-wearing an oldie but a classic tux.

The BAFTAS aim is to make award shows more sustainable and ethical which is why they sent all attendees of this year’s event a guide created by London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainability asking them to think about the environmental aspects of their outfit choices. So, they were given the choice of either re-wearing something they already own or to choose a more sustainable option.
