While Grammys’ 2019 is grabbing all the spotlight, we should give a little consideration regarding BAFTA 2019. The 72nd British Film Academy Awards that occurred in London last night was no less alluring as it had the nearness of the royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge strolled close by close by as they looked flawless to the T. While Prince was a refined man in a suit, it was Middleton, who resembled an angel dropped from paradise in a pearl white gown.
Kate wore a one shoulder pearl white outfit by Alexander McQueen and combined it with glittery Jimmy Choo siphons. The feature however was her earrings. Kate picked a couple of diamond-pearl-studded earrings from Princess Diana‘s collection. That drove Twitterati to value her Greatness’ look from BAFTA and draw parallels between her and Princess Diana.

These exclusive pearl drop earrings were designed in 1914, said to be Princess Diana’s top choice. On numerous occasions, Princess had worn these ones alongside her most loved tiara.
With some admiration, there came some fan war as well. Admirers of Meghan Markle (who regularly gets stuck in an unfortunate situation with the ethical police for uncovering excessively since she is a ‘royal’) attempted to troll the Duchess of Cambridge and got an earful from her admirers.

Aside from the royals, BAFTA 2019 saw any semblance of Rami Malik, Salma Hayek, Olivia Colman, Margot Robbie and some more.

Colman, as of now has three Bafta TV Awards and a Golden Globe gong.
Her dark satire The Favourite leads the nominations with 12 cues, including for best film and extraordinary British film.
Hopefully now the critics and so called fashion police will leave Meghan alone in her off the shoulder pieces. They are both such stunning women…

For best performance (actress), Olivia Colman (The Favourite), Glenn Close (The Wife), Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born), Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) and Viola Davis (Widows) all get nods.
Also, the best on-screen actor class highlights Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Christian Bale (Vice), Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born), Steve Coogan (Stan and Ollie) and Viggo Mortensen (Green Book).
The motion pictures up for best film are BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, and A Star Is Born.
