A red carpet (secret) trend you may have missed: quite shine Advertisement

The best-dressed celebrities on the BAFTAs red carpet

A lush satin sheen was definitely a top trend

By Subhanjana Das  February 10th, 2020

The red carpets officially started to roll out in Los Angeles with the Golden Globe Awards and most recently to the BAFTAs in the Royal Albert Hall. That naturally meant a slew of red carpet looks with everyone from the entertainment industry putting their best foot forward. From Ariana Grande’s hyper-dramatic grey Giambattista Valli haute Couture gown, Billy Porter’s motorised hat to Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen gown, and everything in between, we eyed one trend that kept buzzing—a lush satin sheen that is best friend’s with the paps’ flash.

BAFTA nominee for Little Women, Saoirse Ronan pulled a textbook chic look in this Gucci gown made with discarded satin. #WeStan

Sienna Miller wore a washed out soft green hues in satin from the house of Gucci at the Golden Globes red carpet. It’s not a colour combination that the red carpets get to see a lot, and we can’t see why!

Florence Pugh’s candy orange, asymmetrical Monse dress had a lot going on (did anybody figure the sleeve out?), but it is one of those looks which just work on a red carpet. It’s playful, young, and doesn’t ‘sheen’ away from attention.

While the world now recognises this look on Jen Anniston for a different reason (hint: a certain accidental confrontation), the Dior piece oozed old-world glamour with a flirtatious silhouette.

Okay, Florence Pugh is definitely having a satin-love fashion phase and she makes it loud and clear with this Dries van Noten x Christian Lacroix number as she walked away with a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress category in Little Women.

Billy Porter has well established his red carpet proficiency (*ahem* Met Gala *ahem*) and his Hogan McLaughlin strapless, pale green jumpsuit had all the understated shine that shone as the paps went click-click-click.
