Adjust Comment Print

Kate Middleton wore a black-and-white Erdem dress while attending the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange on Monday night.

Supporters of the Time's Up Movement wore black in their campaign against sexual harassment.

At this year's BAFTA awards, actors and directors dressed in all black, in a show of solidarity with those who wore black at the Golden Globes in January.

Best supporting actress victor Allison Janney has defended Kate Middleton's decision not to wear black at the 2018 Bafta awards. The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third royal tot so Prince George and Princess Charlotte will soon have a brother or sister joining their brood this spring.

Still, while Middleton may not have been dressed in head-to-toe black, she may have given a small nod to the movements with the black velvet ribbon on her gown.

Kate Middleton opted not to wear black in support of the Time's Up movement at the British Academy Film Awards on Sunday night, despite many others in attendance continuing the trend.

Some people came to Middleton's defense and said the duchess was just following royal protocol.

The dress was flattering, and had a lovely frill on the hemline, and made the Duchess look rather cheerful and radiant.

She praised Quinn for "his outstanding craftsmanship for many years" and thanked him for his contribution to British fashion. The crowd rose to their feet as the Queen entered the room dressed in one of her trademark eggshell-blue tweed skirtsuits.

But unlike most female attendees at the event, bar Best Actress victor Frances McDormand due to her "trouble with compliance", the pregnant royal did not wear black, which has been seen as a snub against the movement. Kate's outfit, and Prince William's traditional tux, seemed safe choices for the royals, who avoid political statements. The dress had a high slit on one side that showed off Ferguson black open toe heels.

Ultimately, Hanson feels that the Duchess of Cambridge was caught between "a rock and a hard place" and, whether she wore black or not, someone would have been upset.

Another supporter noted the dark-coloured gown was a good choice, particularly as members of the royal family are supposed to remain politically neutral.

The royals are joining stars including Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie at the British version of the Oscars which are being held at Royal Albert Hall.
