Everyone at the BAFTAs this year was meant to wear something sustainable — either sustainable/green fashion, vintage, a rented gown, or a re-wear. (Obviously, you could argue that MOST red carpet gowns are “rented,” as many of them are borrowed from the designer in the first place; the issue is that they then go right into the archives without anyone else getting a use out of them.) It made for an interesting red carpet, which we of course will be covering in full first thing Monday; it’s a bit hard for me to tell if everyone actually adhered to this or just did whatever. As far as these two go, though: William, of course, is always sustainable in his tuxedo, as I believe it is the only one he owns. (When you’re a man, I suppose you don’t need that many bespoke tuxes.) But Kate opted for a rewear from the waaaaayback machine, a McQueen gown we last saw on their 2012 tour of Singapore, Malaysia, and the Solomon Islands. (The post is also from the day the Kate Topless Photo Scandal broke, and it reminded me how soon that happened after Harry’s Naked Vegas Jaunt. Ah, MEMORIES!) I didn’t love it at the time — I thought it was too Disney Princess — but it’s grown on me.
