With only a few days to go until the 2020 BAFTAs, talk has turned to the wardrobe choices of the stars. In a bid to be more environmentally friendly, the awards organisers have asked guests to dress sustainably. One thing that could mean is rewearing past looks, so here's a few BAFTA red carpet predictionsbased on that glorious idea.
"Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before," a spokesperson for the ceremony told Harper's Bazaar. "The goal is that the EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 will be carbon neutral, working towards having a net positive impact on the environment. From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible."
According to Harper's Bazaar, guests have been given a sustainable fashion guide, created by the London College of Fashion. In it, celebrities are advised to set a sustainable example for others by buying secondhand or from ethical brands, renting clothes, or rewearing previous gowns and suits. (This is especially true for sequinned looks, the guide notes, as the sparkly embellishments are made from plastic.)
Some stars have already committed to a more positive red carpet experience. Joaquin Phoenix, star of the much-hyped Joker, said he will wear the same Stella McCartney tuxedo to every ceremony this awards season, per the Independent. An admirable move, yet one that may unfortunately go unnoticed by the majority of onlookers. What viewers will pay attention to, however, is women wearing the same looks over and over again, as female stars have historically been far more heavily scrutinised for their red carpet ensembles. Although it's unclear who will be attending on the night, the BAFTA nominee list has given everyone a pretty good idea. Here's the stand-out ensembles I'm guessing you may see stars bringing back out on the 2020 red carpet.
