Bafta Awards 2018: Most stars wear black to support Time's Up and Me Too movements
World | culture | 16:17, 19 February 2018 | 1727

AKIPRESS.COM - Guests at the Bafta Film Awards showed their support for the Time's Up and Me Too campaigns by wearing black and sending messages from the stage, BBC reported.

Virtually all the stars at the London ceremony were in black and some were accompanied by rights campaigners.

One of the few in a colourful dress was best actress winner Frances McDormand - but she told the ceremony: "I stand in full solidarity with my sisters."

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a dark green dress with a black ribbon belt.

Bethan Holt, fashion news and features director at The Telegraph, told BBC News: "The Royal Family very rarely get involved in political messaging, so perhaps it's not such a surprise that she didn't join in with the rest of the women and wear black tonight."

But the vast majority of other attendees did wear black as well as Time's Up badges - all in reference to a push for greater respect and equality since the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.
