Another day, another awards show—or two. The British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) and the Critics Choice Awards happened to fall on the same night this year, but that didn't stop the celebrities from slipping into stunning gowns made for winners. In fact, some stars, including contenders Lady Gaga and Ariana DeBose, somehow managed to make an appearance at both shows—the Critics Choice awards had a dual viewing in London, perfect for anyone commuting between the two.
Awards season is always the best time of the year. For starters, you get a whole list of movies to watch approved by the highest of qualified filmmakers and enthusiasts. But we also love watching the red carpet and getting inspiration for our future wedding. So we've rounded up the best bridal-worthy looks from the 2022 BAFTAs, so read on for ample consideration for your impending nuptials.
The icon and mogul wore a black velvet gown with exaggerated sleeves sure to make a statement whether you're the bride or just a well-dressed wedding guest.
This chic black-and-white, high-low dress has a black velvet halter top that flows into a contrasting white layered tulle skirt with a short hemline in the front. If you're a rule-bending bride, this color-blocked dress is bridal enough for the altar while still feeling playful and unique.
Any non-traditional bride can garner inspiration from Lady Gaga's regal Ralph Lauren gown. But even if a colored wedding dress isn't for you, the forest-green velvet piece would make for a perfect winter bridesmaid or guest look.
The actress and Hamilton star has been earning nods all season long for her portrayal of Anita in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story. Ariana wore a sunny yellow Oscar de la Renta gown, fitting for a summer wedding whether you're the bride or a guest. A sparkly red floral embellishment completed the romantic look.
Check off your "something blue" with a dress like Daisy Edgar-Jones' sparkly fringe gown. Although the dress will be hard to find on the racks (it's custom Gucci), it can be easily emulated, especially if your wedding embraces a vintage, '20s vibe.
