This evening, Kate Middleton and Prince William attended one of their most high-profile annual events: the BAFTA Film Awards. The Duchess joined other red carpet guests in championing sustainable fashion—all of whom were abiding by a request the awards show had made ahead of time—by rewearing a stunning Alexander McQueen gown, which she previously wore in 2012 during a royal tour of Singapore, Malaysia, and the Solomon Islands. She paired the gold and white look with sparkly pumps, which blog What Kate Wore believes might be Jimmy Choo Rommy pumps, and Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry.
Prince William also adhered to the dress code for the evening, rewearing a classic tux.
The Jimmy Choo Rommy pumps in gradient glitter are still available at Neiman Marcus:
Her Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry looks to be from the Magic Alhambra Collection, per blog What Kate Wore.
Other awards shows have nodded toward environmentalism, like when the Golden Globes proudly offered vegan cuisine—but the BAFTA Film Awards are taking it to the next level. "Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before," a spokesperson told British 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."
To help attendees participate in their mission (should they choose to), the organization has provided them with a sustainable fashion guide made by the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainability. It outlines several options for choosing an eco-friendly garment, from purchasing vintage clothes secondhand to renting pieces and buying from brands with sustainable bonafides.
Of course, Kate's been shopping in her closet for years, even famously recycling her 2017 BAFTA gown at the National Portrait Gallery Gala two years later—albeit with a few clever alterations.
